“Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:16 (NIV)
God is the Author of our stories. Psalm 139:16 promises us that every second of our lives was already written into His book before we even came into being. Therefore, since the Almighty writes everything into existence, He designs all of our days with one purpose in mind—to give Him the glory.
With this understanding, a whole new meaning to the support-raising comes into view. This journey isn’t a mistake. It might be often greatly misunderstood, but not a mistake. This journey didn’t take God, the Author of our days, by surprise. Therefore, this means that this journey has a greater purpose than just getting our money and hurrying to our places of ministry. When this journey is looked at through the way God authored it, it’s designed for worship.
God has given each of us stories to share that tell of His wonderful works of what He’s doing here and around the world. These stories then become the foundation for worship as others are led into the presence of God and given the opportunity to join His work. As people unite as one on the support-raising journey to accomplish God’s purposes, then teams of people are impacting communities for Christ. Thank the Lord, no one can do this journey alone!
When setting our eyes on a greater goal than just money, we’re able to see a bigger, and more beautiful picture of what God has written in His plan. God never misses a beat in the details of His design. Remember, since He’s the Author of all our days, everything we do fits into an even bigger picture, including raising support.
- How has your support-raising journey given God the glory?
- Look back at your life and worship God for how He has created you to do the very thing He has called you to do. (Eph. 2:10).
