The Kinds of Religious Excuses by John Hagee

You’ve got to succeed somewhere, so start where you are with what you have. Bloom where you’re planted.

The Kinds of Religious Excuses by John Hagee
That the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give to you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of Him, the eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, what are the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints,

If you’ll have faith and not fear… if you’ll start acting like a victor instead of a victim, great things will start happening in your life today!

You’ve got to succeed somewhere, so start where you are with what you have.  Bloom where you’re planted.  “Well, I don’t have anything,” you say.  With God, that’s enough.  I went to the university on a football scholarship and I was poorer than Job’s turkey.  One day I was talking to a student whose father owned the King Ranch.  I bragged to him that I had something money couldn’t buy.  He looked at me and said, “And what would that be?” I said, “Poverty.”  Change your attitude even if you can’t change your circumstances.

There are all kinds of religious excuses people give to hide behind their failure.  “Jesus was poor, and I want to be like him.”  Jesus described his kingdom as a place where they use gold for asphalt, where the gates are of solid pearl, and where mansions designed by the architect of the ages have foundations of diamonds, rubies and sapphires.  If that’s poverty, I want to try it.

What about the verse that says you can’t serve God and mammon Matthew 6:26?  The key word is serve.  You can’t serve money and serve God.  But you can be a friend of God and be plenty wealthy.  Abraham is called the friend of God and he was an exceedingly wealthy man.  Solomon had gold hinges in his horse stable—that’s better than Ross Perot!  I know people driving a 20yearold car held together with baling wire who love money and can’t get their hands on it.  They’re broke, but they’re still serving money.
