If you work in church but are less creative, prosperous and relevant than you once were, something is deeply wrong. If you sacrifice prosperity to work in an NGO or for a cause, you shouldn’t also sacrifice your brain and purpose too.
God never owes and when it comes to earthly rewards, there’s always a time frame to delayed gratification. You’ll feel a sense of progress and purpose, not stagnation.
Stop postponing your future. Sit down and have a business meeting with God. You and him. Ask about the reward for your faithfulness and what his plans are for your life.
When you work for God, he rarely gives you money. What he gives you are wisdom and access. You need to turn the wisdom and opportunities you have been given into products that bring prosperity. If you keep waiting for miraculous money to fall on you, you will remain poor.
The reason why many tithers never break the cycle of poverty, is because they keep waiting for financial blessings to rain down from heaven. Many times, God takes your seed and transforms it into wisdom & opportunity. But, some fail to do the hard work of turning those things into products.
One day, you’ll realise why it’s important to educate yourself and to build skills. Even if God gives you a million Dollar idea, without skill and knowledge, you won’t know what to do with it.
Finally, a lot of people expect to reap where they sow, instead of what they sow. God’s not that predictable. Sometimes, your reward will come from the unlikeliest of places. Lift your eyes. Look beyond your present context. Expand your expectations.If you work in church but are less creative, prosperous and relevant than you once were, something is deeply wrong. Click To Tweet
