Kingdom Builders Total Goal
WHAT'S THE NEXT STEP?
Reaching our 2022 goal takes sacrifice from all of us. Some giving sacrificially and others giving from great abundance. If this is your first time giving, or if you’re looking to get to a new level in giving, here are some ways to step out in generosity.
ASK GOD FOR THE VISION
Ask God to give you a vision for what He could do through you with His help. This is beyond what you can do on your own with your resources. This requires a step of faith. Habakkuk 2:2 tells us to write that vision down and pray about it. God will supply all your needs according to His riches in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). Stepping out in faith pleases God and gives Him the opportunity to work through your life
MAKE A PLAN TO GIVE
When you have plans and are diligent, it leads to plenty. Whatever the amount is – have a plan in place, work the plan and be obedient with it. Start there.
BELIEVE WHAT GOD COULD DO THROUGH YOU IN 2022
This number is between you and God. Then, watch as each step of faith you take moves you closer to that amount. Believe that God can do exceedingly abundantly more than we can ask or imagine (Ephesians 3:20). Every gift matters to God. It’s not the size of the gift, but the obedience to God’s voice that matters. Plan to give. Ask God. Believe in what God can do through you in 2022
