My wife and I had been praying about something that could become a stream of income for us. We would have to do some work first to make it happen, and that work would require spending some money. And you know the old adage, “You have to spend money to make money.”
We wanted to do this, but was hesitant to spend the money, but a few weeks ago I suggested we start with step one. I felt a prompting in my spirit that we should at least complete that one task. Today, I’m glad we did.
After step one was under way, I started telling my wife I was getting a sense of urgency in my spirit to complete the project. We reviewed the amount of money it would take and decided to “go for launch!”
We didn’t act fast enough. This past Monday we received an unexpected message from an acquaintance of mine that I have not spoken with in two years. He asked me if I knew of anyone who had a particular item as he was trying to prepare for the arrival of his girlfriend, and I responded we were developing one. His request had a due date, so needless to say, I have been working this past week day and night to get our project done. The same project I was feeling the urgency in my spirit to complete two weeks ago.
Don’t be like me. Don’t ignore, don’t put off those little promptings from God in your spirit. He’s trying to lead you, guide you, and yes, even provide for you. We knew this was of God, because we had only told two of our closest friends about what we were doing. The other confidence we received knowing this was God working is this; his girlfriend is a Filipino, and if you have read past blogs you will recall that my wife is as well. Now his girlfriend will have an immediate connection to help adjust to America.
God is so incredible as He is able to move and work in multiple individual’s lives at the same time, to accomplish his will. You gotta love it. I do.
“I know what I’m doing. I have it all planned out—plans to take care of you, not abandon you, plans to give you the future you hope for.” JER. 29:11 (MSG)
