Are you looking for ways to increase your income even amid this pandemic?
If yes, then you’re in the right place!
Here are Beyond Small Talk guests Vic and Avelynn Garcia to share with you 3 simple yet significant ways to help you learn more and earn more during this crisis.
1. Know God’s plan for your life
The well-known Jeremiah 29:11 verse says that God knows His plans for you, and His plans for you are good. But, do you know exactly what those plans are?
Knowing God’s plans and purpose for your life will help you realize His will for your finances. And how would you do that? By calling unto God – as told by the succeeding verses:
“Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart” (Jeremiah 29:12-13 NIV)
“Instead of calling the Lord, we tend to call our friends or someone who would lend us money. God becomes our last resort,” says Avelynn, emphasizing the importance of seeking God first before venturing into any business.
Seek God and ask Him what venture you must take, when, where, and how you can take it.
2. Pray with all your heart
You don’t know what to do? Tell God. You have no idea how you would earn money? Tell God and ask Him for wisdom.
If you are wondering whether you should get a new job, put up a new business, or take another sideline – here’s the good news: God knows which path is best for you.
So before you plan your next step, Vic suggests that you pray with all your heart and ask, “God, can You tell me what You know so that I could do Your will?” He added, “With the limited time and resources that we have, we cannot afford to guess and commit many mistakes.”
3. Do not forget to give tithes and offering
During a financial crisis, it might be extra challenging to let go of any peso. Yet according to Avelynn, “Most of the time, you go broke because you do not give to God.”
When you allow God to intervene in your finances, He will surely bless your obedience. After all, all things work together for good to those who love God, isn’t? That is the same promise Malachi 3:10 brings:
“‘Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,’ says the Lord Almighty, ‘and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.’”
Are you asking God for wisdom about your finances?
