How sensitive are you to the Holy Spirit?
You need to first understand Jesus’s ministry. You are an example of Jesus so you need to follow his footsteps. He never begs and everyone willing invites him to their homes because of his ministry, he doesn’t take anything for free, and he return their favors by healing the sick and performing miracles. I know not everyone can do that but use whatever gifts God gives you to help them in return. If you understand this logic you will have unlimited resources, but the days when I venture alone God has sometimes tested me beyond 3 days without food, but my faith is greater than a mustard seed and I know I can survive without food for up to 21 days, He later rewards me thru a Tibetan monk who prayed for me and I strike lottery of $5,000 which lasted me more than 2 years. Now thru your personal walk with Jesus, He is like a friend, and if you ask for favors from an earthly friend and if what you want is a big item, like a study loan of $3,000, you need to give Him time to prepare for it, and how do you know for sure He will help you? You need to spend effort yourself to raise the money yourself first and be sensitive to those worldly friends who might return favors to you but if you do not help them in the first place, do you expect them to help you? So a christian’s life is “Never an island”, you need to be firmly rooted to a church like “the vines to a tree” to draw nourishment to help others and others will also help you too. If you understand all the logic I presented to you, you can therefore lead a victorious life, as you are “the light of the world” and you must be willing to furthur God’s ministry, there is no resource too big for you to handle, but remember never be arrogant, be humble as God is working thru you for His glory, not yours.
So without money you will see how I plan my trip and Wedding to Nanning, Harbin, Tibet, Shenzhen and back to Singapore, because I can provide even more value than what others contribute in my ministry, and everyone in the world has witnessed it.
Embarking on the journey. It is like writing your last will, you need to prepare resources to take care of your loved ones. If you have kids, you need to get an education policy for them when they grow old, if you have a better half to leave the house for your wife, and leave enough resources for your own journey, most of the time, you won’t have much money left after that, then you need to live by faith. It is a very wonderful journey as you live your life leaning on God’s promises and see them fulfilled day by day. As you grow stronger, your faith also grow stronger, as God’s miracle changes your life, I promise you that. That is what Jesus says to take up your cross and follow him. Although you may face pain and suffering, but the happiness you feel inside is more rewarding as you face a living God, where the fulfillment of God’s promises is seen by your very own eyes.
To live by faith, the cares of the world must not hold you down, where you work without worrying about putting food on the table for your family, so you really need to save enough money or make arrangements with your wife, the best ways to solve this problem. Then only you can concentrate on spiritual things, to win lives for the Lord and be victorious, most of the time, christians are dragged down by the cares of the world and they do not bear fruits.
So now you are of the spirit, everything takes a new perspective, sex is for procreation and not so much on pleasure, alcohol is sometimes good for the flesh, but let me warn you, there is a sin that God will not forgive you, that is causing your brother to sin, and if your actions causes your brother to sin, his damnation is blood on your hands.
