God as Our Life Coach

How God directs our paths as the ultimate Life Coach
This article follows Suffering and Challenges 

Wither we are dealing with unjust suffering or challenges we can access wisdom from God and be guided. We can move from misery and hopelessness to a superabundant life. 

Graham Cooke has powerful teachings about this process. If you are serious about tapping into all God has for you I highly recommend you get his books or teachings. (The one thing I will say about his work is he emphasizes God using our suffering to impart upgrades. He isn’t as clear about it as I would like but at the root of his teachings is also the concept that God is only a bringer of good things and only uses bad situations to our advantage.)

Lean on, trust in, and be confident in the Lord with all your heart and mind (Leb - Inner man/SOUL) (upgrade your soul so you can have unrestrained faith is God) and do not rely on your own insight or understanding.
In all your ways (journeys, doings) know (intimately experience God personally), recognize, and acknowledge Him, and He will direct and make straight and plain your paths. (Your path will be pleasing.) Proverbs 3 (AMP) (Elaboration added see the Strongs.)

This is a powerful verse. It’s saying that we need to have full faith in God in our heart and we will be able to walk out life with purpose and steadily move towards our dreams and promises. The key is to upgrade our soul so our faith and expectation align with him. 

We must Abide
If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts (the truth of christ be rooted and grow in your soul), 
Ask (petion, demand) whatever you will (Desire), and it shall be done for you (come to pass). 
John 15:7 (AMP) (Elaboration added see the Strongs.)

The word abide here is a profound word. It’s not only speaking of waiting and enduring it’s a word that also means living. It’s make a home and dwelling on a place. Like how a farmer picks a plot of land and works it and builds and makes it their home. The word abide has the sense of security and peace that comes from having a place to call your own. So it’s speaking of being come rooted in jesus through daily intimacy. 

This verse is saying that as we upgrade our soul with the truth and experience of Jesus we will have more and more power to actively ask for the desires of our hearts and have our wildest dreams come true.

Co Laboring with God
God calls us to be proactive with making our promises real.

28 We are assured and know that [[a]God being a partner in their labor] all things work together (in synergy) and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love (agape) God and are called according (walking out day by day) to [His] design and purpose. Romans 8:28 (AMP)

This verse is saying that as we walk day by day in agreement and synergy and love with God and his purpose for us all good things will work together for our good. 

Getting our Soul Healed so we can Live our Dreams
The following verses call us to constantly upgrade our soul by encountering Jesus. And as we upgrade we have practical access to all the riches or heaven. 

We upgrade and heal our soul by accessing the power of jesus while tapping into the riches of heaven through the manifestations of God’s presence:

16 May He grant you out of the rich treasury of His glory to be strengthened and reinforced with mighty, miraculous, power (dunamisin the inner man (soul) by the [Holy] Spirit [Himself indwelling your innermost being and personality].

The more intimacy we have with Christ the more faith we have to call down miracles from heaven:

17 May Christ through your faith [actually] dwell (settle down, abide, make His permanent home) in your hearts! May you be rooted deep in love and founded securely on love,
18 That you may have the power and be strong to apprehend and grasp with all the saints [God’s devoted people, the experience of that love] what is the breadth and length and height and depth [of it];
19 [That you may really come] to know [practically, [e]through experience for yourselves] the love of Christ, which far surpasses[f]mere knowledge [without experience]; that you may be filled [through all your being] [g]unto all the fullness of God [may have the richest measure of the divine Presence, and [h]become a body wholly filled and flooded with God Himself]!
20 Now to Him Who, by (in consequence of) the [action of His] power (dunamis) that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams]
21 To Him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations forever and ever. Amen (so be it). Ephesians 3 AMP (Elaboration added see the Strongs.)

We are powerful to bring about our Promises NOW
To sum this all up, God does not bring about suffering but he will allow us to be challenged. 

Instead of passively waiting for God to do something we are supposed to actively work with God to bring about our promises.  We work with God to remove Sin, curses and blocks that hinder God’s blessing in our life. 

We must get wisdom and strategy from God for what to do. We must get our soul healed through intimacy and time in the presence of God. That makes us more like Jesus and we have access to Faith and wisdom and the power of Jesus to call our promises from heaven to manifest of earth. We work with God to remove Sin, curses and blocks that hinder God’s blessing in our life. 

Yes it is work but it’s better than sitting around jaded and hopeless for the rest of our lives while things get worse and worse.

I am going to elaborate on practical simple ways to get your should healed and remove blocks and access wisdom in other posts.
