My ex roommate Unity from Zimbabwe always answers the question about how she is doing with,
-”Me? Oh me, I’m blessed!”
This morning at base worship, Stefaan (who is still our base director until September) spoke about how blessed we are on this base and how he sometimes walks around among the cars and sees the BMWs, Audis and so on. For his part, his new car arrived this morning and now the family is waiting on God to show them who they are supposed to give their old car to. They have given away six cars. As for me, I have strongly felt during the last few weeks that I need to give away my camera that I bought last year. The thought makes me SO HAPPY, and now I’m waiting for the right moment.
And remember nobody receives a salary here, but everybody is living out of the YWAM principle of ”relationship based support”. So this morning, Stefaan called all those trusting God for a car to the front, and those who have a car prayed for them. Then he called all those who are trusting God to buy a house in Worcester to the front. After that people started telling sotories of how God has provided for them in big and small things.
Stefaan also spoke about how poverty and wealth are spiritual things and how are thoughts must be renewed according to the principles of the Kingdom of God. A while ago Jesus spoke to me from Ps. 37 and the life of Jacob in the Old Testament. According to the word of God the righteous man is the one who GIVES - and ever generously. The position of the righteous is a position of giving. The righteous man is also smart about his wealth. This is a promise from God and it is also an ATTITUDE that we as the righteous ones must develop.
So, how am I doing today? Me? I’m blessed!
