Are You Operating With A Surplus?

man with surplus control circumstances - harvey firestone

A man with a surplus can control circumstances, but a man without a surplus is controlled by them, and often has no opportunity to exercise judgment.

-Harvey S. Firestone-

I ran across this quote in a marketing newsletter, so I know the context of it was written with regard to having enough money on hand to be able to always have a surplus for unexpected things that might arise.

I would like for you to think about this SURPLUS from the perspective of being disciplined to spend time with God each day, not in the sense that you can store up something you can physically touch or see.

If you don’t put God first each day, when something bad or unexpected happens you will have to ask forgiveness and get in a right relationship with Him before you feel you can ask Him to work on the situation that has arisen. That might take a lot more time than you can afford if your need is urgent.

God wants you to have such a personal relationship with Him that you never think of trying to handle any situation yourself without His help.

If you make the decision to put Him first, He will give you the exact amount of power, faith, and strength you need for whatever arises.

In the world in which we live, it can be such a comfort to know that you don’t have to depend upon your own strength to handle a situation that might have spiraled totally out of control. God knows exactly what to do and always works at exactly the right time to meet your need.

Start working on your SURPLUS by being disciplined to spend time with God each day and put Him first in everything you do. Then it will be easy to pour your heart out to Him in time of need.
