This came to me yesterday, and I just want to share, it may help someone.
I have to constantly remind myself of why I do what I do. It is very easy to lose sight of the prize at the end of this race when you allow materialistic thoughts to take over.
Do I want the ministry to prosper? Of course, but not that I get the glory. All glory is due to God.
Every book, He gave me. He may have given me a book just for one person to read, and that is okay. If one person read one of the books, the seed is planted, and He will do the rest. I trust God that before these books were written, He already knew who would read them, He is just that kind of God.
What am I saying? Consider your motives. Are you in the business/ministry of making money or changing lives? If you are chasing dollars, you will never catch them.
Jesus will supply ALL your needs.
Colossians 3:17, Proverbs 3: 6-10
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
