FINANCIAL BLESSINGS

God wants your bills to be paid, your needs met and your family blessed. He doesn’t hold back any blessings. God wants you blessed financially so that you can finance the gospel and establish his covenant. God wants you to honour him through your financial success. 

The Lord shall increase you more and more, you and your Children.”(Psalm 115:14)
In order to be blessed financially you must follow the financial principles that God has given us in His word. Jesus set out the most important principle, the principle of giving. “Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Luke 6:38)
When you give to God, He will give back to you in greater measure than you have given. The more you give to God, the more you will receive. I have seen the truth of this principle in my own life and even with the people at church. Those that are faithful in giving tithes and offerings are blessed financially, even in the midst of recession. We all have a choice to make. Whether we are going to believe God’s Word and be a generous giver or not? God blesses those who trust Him with their finances. 
The lord will grant you abundant prosperity – in the fruit of your womb, the young of your livestock and the crops of your ground – in the land He swore to your ancestors to give you. The Lord will open the heavens, to send rain on your land in season and to bless the work of your hands. You will lend to may nations but will borrow from none. The Lord will make you the head, not the tail. If you pay attention to the commands of the Lord your God I give you this day and carefully follow them, you will always be at the top, never at the bottom.” (Deuteronomy 28:11-13)
God blesses us so that we are blessings to others. (Gen 12:2) The bible teaches that God blesses use so that we will bless others. We not blessed to feel good, happy and comfortable. This is the first law of blessing and it must follow to those in need. We can bless other by serving their needs be it physical or emotional support or financial help. 
The more you bless other people, the more God blesses your life. Luke 6:38 tells us, “Give away your life; you will find life given back, but not merely given back – given back with bonus and blessing.” You can’t out-give God. The more you give the more God pours His blessing upon you. 
Malachi 3: 10 -12 tells us to; “Bring the whole tithe onto the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,”says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the flood gates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it. I will prevent pests from devouring your crops, and the vines in your fields will not drop before it is ripe;” says the Lord Almighty. Then all the nations will call you blessed, for yours will be a delightful land.

ORGANIZATION

I never realized how much of my life needed to be organized until, god has been reminding like everyday to organize. Which I have to say is not the easiest thing in the world to do. I have had to go through the procress of eliminating things that should not exist to me. When god tells you to do this you do it because he wants to bless you with amazing things to show forth.  I have tired many different ways of getting organized but nothing works for me. So I end up giving up on it and not wanting to deal with it. However, what is a better way to be organized than by organized by god.


But this thing I did command them: Listen to and obey My voice, and I will be your God and you will be My people; and walk in the whole way that I command you, that it may be well with you (Jeremiah 7:23).


I made my schedule, and I can change it. So I will Pray about my day, my week, and my life goals to find out what God wants me to do, and what He doesn’t want me to do. If I am not doing what god is telling me to do, I am missing out on a lot of things and allow for others to control my life. If I do what God tells me to do, He will bless me with joy, peace, rest, and wonderful relationships.That which is desired in a man is loyalty and kindness [and his glory and delight are his giving] (Proverbs 19:22).

For which of you, desiring to build a tower, does not first sit down and count the cost, whether he has enough to complete it? Otherwise, when he has laid a foundation and is not able to finish, all who see it begin to mock him, saying, ‘This man began to build and was not able to finish.’ 

There has to be some type of my organziation with out it, how are you supposed to get anything done in life?

SUCCESS SCARES ME

My blog Styling With Sheila J is a product of my live and you learn blog, ModelSavings.com.  I thought it was a good idea at the time but as the months turned into a year and a year turned into 2. I thought that that converting to word press self hosted from blogger not realizing how much of a financial burden this may cost me. Now as many of you know I am all about saving money, but I was wasting money more than making money and my blog was not doing what it was supposed to do. As my life began to spiral down hill, and began to feel all over the place so did my blog.
It took months of frustration and my blog being cut off and on from blue host for me to say enough was enough and ask God for clarity on what I should do by still remaining true to myself and what I wanted to do in my life and career. One day as I was on the phone with blue host trying to regain my domain name from them that was on lock due to a bank situation, I asked should I have even be doing this or should I just give up on this idea of model savings. The whole concept behind model savings was the fact that I am a model who loves to save money. However it seems as if that concept didn’t appeal to many models at all. The aggravation!
One thing is for sure my blog posts stylingwithsheilaj.com appealed to everyone, thus my new blog being called stylingwithsheilaj.com. Now what scares me is success, I just launched the first blog post on Jan 8th,2015 with the blog post 21 Apps that Will Make and Save You Money. I would have never guessed that a week later that same blog post would have went viral making my blog reach 22,000 view in under a months time. The irony of it all is that before I write every blog post is that I pray ask God to write my blog posts because with out him I am now nothing and I can not do anything with out him. 
This idea of success scares me so much because I know success for me is right around the corner and I feel it coming very soon. And I have no idea of what to do with it. I have been struggling for so long that the idea of having a million dollars scares me. Why? Because with that comes taxes and with the a million ways that I have figured out how to make money from ,  I have no idea of how to maneuver with taxes and how to pay my taxes with so much money coming in. With money and success comes things that I am not used to. So god you are gonna have to do what you do best and help me in the process because lord knows I would not know what to do. 
What does the bible say about success? 
Proverbs 29:18King James Version (KJV)
18 Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he.
Granted I have a vision but I never imagined it happening this fast. It amazes me and it’s all because I sat down wrote out the vision like it says in Habakkuk 2:2. 
“Success depends on three things: who says it, what he says, how he says it; and of these three things, what he says is the least important.”
When King David was about to die, he gave his son, Solomon, the following advice: “Do what the LORD your God commands and follow his teachings. Obey everything written in the Law of Moses. Then you will be a success, no matter what you do or where you go” (1 Kings 2:3 CEV). 
Genesis 39:2-6 “The Lord was with Joseph, and he was a successful man; and he was in the house of his master the Egyptian. And his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord made all he did to prosper in his hand. So Joseph found favor in his sight, and served him. Then he made him overseer of his house, and all that he had he put under his authority. So it was, from the time that he had made him overseer of his house and all that he had, that the Lord blessed the Egyptian’s house for Joseph’s sake; and the blessing of the Lord was on all that he had in the house and in the field. Thus he left all that he had in Joseph’s hand, and he did not know what he had except for the bread which he ate.”
Psalm 1:1-3 “Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.”

If you are not walking with advice of the wicked nor standing in the way of sinners or the way that sinners are going and are also not sitting in the seat of people who talk bad about god then God will bless you. To be blessed means to literally make you happy to your hearts desires. Your happiness will naturally be in God’s law and you will meditate day or night (all the time) and this means that like a tree planted by a stream of water, you will never dry up or die because you will always produce godly fruit and everything you do will prosper
Proverbs 3:1-4 “My son, do not forget my teaching, but let your heart keep my commandments, for length of days and years of life and peace they will add to you. Let not steadfast love and faithfulness forsake you; bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart. So you will find favor and good success in the sight of God and man.”
The Word of God and write the words onto the tablet of our heart. The heart, in the Jewish language, was the seat of intellect. Pretty much what you have to do is memorize the Bible well not all of it but some of it. If you do this you will have “length of days and years of life” and “you will find favor and good success.” What more could a man or woman want.

EMPIRE

Building an empire is not easy. Everyone does a lot of talking when it comes to this however No one ever puts in the work to get it done. One thing is for sure you can’t except to make 100k or more a year doing $10 an hour tasks to get there. 
One thing I have been struggling with for the past couple of days is the idea of whether or not I should delegate the tasks that I do on a regular basis. It is a scary thought to think about. As I think about this if I do not go through this process I will not have time to do the work that God wants me to do for his kingdom. This could be what I need to do for him to do more in my life. 
As you are putting him first in his kingdom you are in turn allowing him to do what he wants with you. By allowing your self to let go you are now allowing yourself to be available for others and inspire more people. 
Let’s say I choose to not delegate the work that I have to other people. That means I lose out on inspiring a team of people through out my business and career because I chose to not let go and let God in and let others do what they can to help the vision flourish. 
Habakkuk 2:2-3
2
“Write down the revelation
    and make it plain on tablets
    so that a herald[b] may run with it.
For the revelation awaits an appointed time;
    it speaks of the end
    and will not prove false.
Though it linger, wait for it;
    it[c] will certainly come
    and will not delay.
I don’t want to keep building an empire as if this relative success comes from me. God has to be in the spotlight because it is not my success and empire it his. As quick as you built the empire God will quickly take it away if you are not focused on him and doing his work.
