But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will
be given to you as well (Mt 6:33)
Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken
together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure
you use, it will be measured to you. (Luke 6:38)
Give us today our daily bread. (Mt 6:11)
All these months I've been holding on to promises like these. God called me
to Kansas City, to get prepared for the ministry He has for me, to be part of
revival, catch the fire, be transformed into His image, and take it to the
nations. He told me He would be my provider.
So I've been totally dependent on him, since foreign students cannot work in
the US. However, God works through His people. He blesses His children, so
they in turn can bless other children of His. I love being a blessing to
others and want to grasp every opportunity I get. I can give my time, my
skills, my knowledge, offer my hands to be His extended hands - and whenever
I can I love giving my money as well.
However, presently I can give all the former but not the latter. Thank God,
the apartment situation in Vienna is once and for all OVER. Not only my
apartment is gone, but all the furniture in there as well, everything I had. I
did this in obedience to God who told me to give up the apartment. As I
released the lady who had stayed in the apartment without ever paying
anything from her debts.
The result is that I do not have any money - to pay my rent, my tuition or
even buy food. My Austrian account is overdrawn and will soon reach its
limit. I need YOU, people of God - those of you who want to have a part in
what God is doing on the earth. This is not about me at all, it's about HIM
and HIS purposes! So I plead with you - don't just hit the 'delete'-button. Ask
God what YOU personally can do!
This e-mail goes to 197 people. If everyone of you just donated $10 a month -
even if half of you did - you would share in the building of His kingdom, AND
be greatly blessed yourselves! I truly believe with all my heart, that the
return you would get from the Lord would far exceed your expectations. All I
need for rent and tuition is $450 a month. Surely that can't be too hard, can
I can only come to one conclusion: Either I haven't heard the Lord right and
I'm not supposed to be here and the promises in His word therefore do not
apply to me and I have to return to Austria (and I believe I can rule this
out), or His people have failed to respond to His call.
Do you think you could commit to donating 10 dollars/euro a month?
Would you at least pray about it?
May the Lord bless you richly and fill you with His glory.
