One of the fears that most grips us is the fear of speaking with others or in front of a group of people, no matter how big that group may be. Do you experience that fear yourself? If you do, I want you to remember this: if God sets up a speaking engagement for us it’s because He has a message that He wants to speak THROUGH us to that person or to that group of people. What we need to do is simply come to Him in prayer beforehand and ask Him for wisdom - ask Him what He wants us to speak about and ask Him to give us the words to say. You see, it’s not about all the great knowledge we have to offer others; it’s about speaking to the hearts of our listeners and there is no one more qualified to speak to our hearts than Christ himself.
When we say “yes” to a speaking engagement and pray for wisdom, God also gives us confidence in exchange for our fear. We start speaking and the words pour out like water and the message is exactly what needed to be shared at that time and place. Knowing that it is God speaking through us should take pride right out of us and give us a heart filled with gratitude that He chose to speak through us. So next time you are asked to speak with someone or in front of a group of people, just thank God for the opportunity and ask Him to let you know what the message is that He wants you to share at that time and place. Remember the verse in Joshua 1:8 - do you know it? “Be strong and courageous for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”
You may be afraid that nobody is going to listen to you because you are yet not an influential person or maybe you are filled with regret and shame from past things you did or didn’t do. You may be saying to yourself, or others may be saying to you, that you are not qualified to be a leader. Hey, if God chose you, He has qualified you. It’s not about ranking up quickly, it’s about consistently following the little steps that lead us towards Royal Crown Diamond. It may seem at times that we are not getting anywhere fast, but if you are consistently placing your Essential Rewards order and using the products on a regular basis, and if you are sharing about Young Living daily in any way God places it on your heart to share, then you WILL reach the top if you don’t quit along the way. God has us “stuck at a rank” for a while sometimes just because He has some things He needs us to learn before He moves us forward. But remember, He may choose to move you all the way to the top at any time if you prove faithful in doing those simple things He asks you to do on a consistent basis, with a heart filled with gratitude for being part of this awesome company, being able to enjoy products that are enhancing your health as you incorporate them into your life along with other healthy lifestyle habits. If God moved Joseph out of prison to be the top leader of Egypt, second only to the Pharaoh, He can certainly do something like that to you as well. Just stay faithful and consistent.
Focus on impacting the lives of 10 people that want to duplicate your actions. Many will not want to listen to your message - but remember, many are called but few are chosen. If someone ignores what we say, that is their choice. Our job is only to offer the opportunity to teach them how to live healthily and how to enhance that lifestyle with Young Living products. Those that see how amazingly simple that is and who choose to enjoy the Essential Rewards Program and share the message with 10 other people will be blessed abundantly more than they can imagine, but the choice is theirs to make. Just keep sharing and one day God will grant you those 10 people that duplicate your actions.
Don’t ever give up! Stay faithful and consistent. Trust His timing.
