Money Will Always Follow God’s Mission (June 16, 2012)

Sometimes even the best of our intentions travel unpaved paths and seem to lead away from our desired destiny.   But, it is equally true that things are not always what they seem.

Jesus began His public ministry speaking to a few people which quickly grew into multitudes.  And like any major event, it takes money to host and generously serve those who come to these special events.  Tradition says you must charge people to get what you have, or you must go out and find others who will underwrite the event as sponsors and donors.  But Jesus took a different approach when He chose to make provision Himself and through the blessings bestowed by His Father.

Choosing to do out of obedience to God’s instruction will always activate God’s provision, not the other way around!  Far too often well-intentioned people postpone their assignment until they see God’s provision or can raise the money themselves. 

I say stay the course in finding how to take your blessing and share it with others first, then trust God for the increase.  He absolutely loves when His children are dependent on Him, and He alone!
