The summer is upon us and I know many of us are thankful that the snow and cold are gone and new life is blooming. As we move quickly towards the end of the year, I don’t want another moment to pass without you being prepared to achieve your God Given Dream. Last month we talked about facing our fears, this month we’ll address the issue of lack. We must remember there is no lack in God, He has it all in hand and He has made provision for you.
Have you ever felt that you could not achieve your God given dreams because you didn’t have what you needed to make it all come together? You feel you can’t go forward because you don’t have the proper resources to do what you know you’ve been called to do. But God is great and there is no lack in Him! There is always a way to get started even if you don’t have a million bucks in your hand. If God called you to do it, then you have what you need in your hand – Read Judges Chapter 6 and use Gideon as role model, I do!
There is one simple fact that cannot be denied when you are facing a lack of resources to move forward in your God given dream. You know someone, somewhere who has what you need or you know someone who knows someone who has what you need. All you have to do is pray and then ask. I’ve gotten more stuff that I’ve needed in the last few months from folks simply by asking! Staff volunteers, recording equipment, financial donations, assistance in booking just to name a few, just from asking. The Word tells us to ask and we shall receive, so get to asking. And remember the universal law of reaping and sowing, if someone asks you, be sure to give it if you got it! Get yourself some paper and answer the following questions:
What are your biggest needs to get started?
Who can you ask for assistance to get moving? List those folks:
Select a concrete date on when you’ll ask them for what you need:
- Always remember, the first person to ask is the Lord, He has everything you need!
- Don’t be afraid to ask them for suggestions if they don’t have what you need
- Take what they are willing to give, God can do much with a little
- Apply the 2 Step Approach, “Pray and Then Ask!”
How have you been working to overcome your fear? After you ask for something you need, please share the praise reports as well! I’d love to hear more about it. Please leave me comment on Facebook at www.facebook.com/ministryofnaima or here on the blog!
