It is a part of His character to provide for me. (Philippians 4:19, Genesis 22:14) I have a personal calling from God to provide for the needs of my family. (1 Timothy 5:8) My team of ministry partners is laying up treasures in heaven and is greater involved in the fulfillment of the Great Commission because of their participation in my life. (Matthew 6:20) I am inviting people to be partners in ministry with me by committing their time, prayers, resources and finances to what God is doing in our world. I am not begging for money or asking for a contribution. (1 Thessalonians 1:8) My ministry is very significant since people have a need for God. (Matthew 9: 36; Romans 3:23, 6:23) My ministry is very significant since I am providing solutions to life's day-to-day problems. (Matthew 11:28-30) My ministry is very significant since it addresses the root problem of our society and world. (John 3:19b) God promises that those who give to my ministry will be more blessed by the giving than I am by the receiving. (Acts 20:35) I am an encouragement to my ministry team in their own walks with God as they see what He is doing through me. (1 Thessalonians 1:8) God is using me as an opportunity for obedience when others give to my ministry since He has called everyone to give financially to His work. (Malachi 3:8,10; 2 Corinthians 8:1-5) I have committed my life and my family to the ministry of reconciliation. (2 Corinthians 5: 18-20) I am worthy of my wages. (1 Timothy 5:18) As a laborer in the harvest, I am an answer to prayer. (Matthew 9:37-38)
