How do you reach your goal without the required resources?

I am founder-leader of a Mission. We have staff in the field, office and projects. But at the moment we are facing limitation of funds and therefore, we are not able to meet the required budget. So our goal is distracted.

What do you suggest?

    God’s Work will always have God’s Supply. I spent 20 years in a regular job with a pay check. I spent 5 years in a business where my income came for sales. I also spent about 20 years in a ministry where my income came from offerings given by those who were receiving my ministry. Then I spent a year in a ministry with a salary. Now I am involved in missions work that involves “raising my own support.”

    SO, what do you do when you are ministering to people who have no ability to support you? What if you are ministering in a place where the people are opposing you, or where you must keep you real mission a secret – like in the midst of persecution.

    Then you have the privilege of presenting the need to the people of God so they can send you on your way (Rom. 15:24; 1 Cor. 16:6; 3 John v. 1-7). It is totally legitimate and spiritually valid to give an opportunity to other believers to participate in the work God is doing through you by partnering with you to provide material support.

    In situations like this you find out whether you are really trusting in God, and whether He has really called you! Trust Him daily for your daily bread.

    I pray from the prayer that Jesus taught us to pray. I noticed the use of PLURAL pronouns by those who are praying these wonderful words:
    Our Father in heaven, hallowed be Your name.
    Your kingdom come, Your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.
    Give us this day our daily bread.

    Whenever I pray these words, I am thinking of my own needs, of course. But I am also thinking of the needs of those who need the Bread of Life, the Word of Truth from God. Oh, God, will you supply these needy ones with your bread? And I am also asking God to supply the needs in great abundance of my many friends who are helpers of the ministry in which God is using me.

    Trust God to supply your needs in the way that He has ordained.
