What is Your GQ?

Psalm 46:10 ESV.
Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!”

We all have heard about I.Q. And most of us are probably aware of E.Q. But how many of us truly focus on improving our G.Q?   Godly Quotient.

We spend our lifetime accumulating knowledge. Yet most of what we acquired is only good for trivia game shows. As we mature and gain control over our emotions, we find our success throughout life has more to do with our attitude than our intelligence, our actions rather than our words, and our personal goals/dreams rather than the expectations and standards of the outside media/culture.

Measuring your Intelligence and Emotional Quotient may give you added insight into your strengths and abilities, but it is a far cry from the most important measurement: your relationship and knowing the Triune God. When you become more aware of God’s presence in your life, how He shares everything He owns with you including His name, and His desire for you to succeed in life, you find yourself in a wonderful awe state of mind, heart, and soul. As you lean more on Him, He opens more of your eyes and ears to see the work of His hands in your life and in others.

You ask in prayer and witness answers. You diligently seek, and find. You knock on doors until the one opens that takes your breath away in amazement. You come to realize each and every  day there is a God and He is involved in every detail of your life. You become more and more comfortable in trusting Him through the hard times as well in the good times. You come to better know His ways and are always pleasantly surprised how He works-out situations and circumstances beyond your initial expectations. Your God quotient grows each and every day.

Intelligence is good. So is strengthening your emotional management skills. But nothing compares with excelling in your awareness of God’s love and influence in your life. Make that your aim and everything else seems to fall into place better than you could ever realize.

Rooting For You in Christ!
