Discover the Joy of Cheerful Giving

It’s not complicated. It’s a matter of faith… God’s revelation, not human reason!

STEP ONE: PRAY

  • Ask God this question: “Lord what do you want to do through me to accomplish your will for Hope Ames?”
  • “Keep on asking, and you will be given what you ask for. Keep on looking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened.” Matthew 7:7

STEP TWO: LISTEN TO GOD

  • Keep on asking until you “hear” God’s answer. If you don’t get anything – in other words, if you don’t get a pretty strong indication in your heart, soul, or mind as you pray each day throughout this campaign, rest in the quiet and calming presence of the Holy Spirit until you do. Be still. Listen to God, not people. God will write a number on your heart, soul, or mind.
  • “Be silent, and know that I am God.” Psalm 46:10

STEP THREE: TAKE A LEAP OF FAITH

  • Trust God enough to do whatever he calls you to do, believing that he will provide the means to make it happen (2 Corinthians 9:6-11). Then you will give as a matter of faith and thus, experience the joy and freedom of Bible-based giving without anyone, other than God, telling you what to give! Enjoy the feeling!

And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ. Philippians 1:6

Remember this – a farmer who plants only a few seeds will get a small crop. But the one who plants generously will get a generous crop. You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.”

2 Corinthians 9:6-7, NLT
