In addition to being a big Joel Osteen fan I am also a big fan of “The Secret” and the Law of Attraction. If you too are familiar with The Secret and the Law of Attraction perhaps you noticed, as I did, that Rhonda Byrne uses the term “The Universe” throughout the book, DVD, CD or whatever version you’ve experienced.
It didn’t take me long to realize that “The Universe” is God. If you didn’t pick up on that, I challenge you to read/watch or listen to it again and whenever she uses the term “Universe” replace that with “God” and I’m sure you’ll get a whole new appreciation for it.
In the book of Job, Job states in chapter 3 verse 25 “For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.“
This is the way many of us use the Law of Attraction. Instead of casting our cares on the Lord and trusting God, we spend our thought life worrying, and worrying is attracting the very thing(s) we do NOT want! By the way, who do you think is behind your worry? And the answer is the enemy.
God wants us to trust in Him… NOT the enemy. And to believe that whatever comes against us can be overcome, so long as we have faith and will stand on His word and His promises. The next time you find yourself worrying about something, say to yourself, “That’s not going to happen. God is still on the throne and He will see me through this situation, just as He has seen me through so many others in the past.”
Have faith for the things that you want and they will come upon you.
