Over 12 years ago, God told me that if we positioned ourselves, spiritually, we would receive His favor. We would stand to RISE in the coming hard times.
Just two years later, the big recession hit HARD! Some local business leaders in St. Louis were in the middle of building a massive conference facility with an indoor go-kart track and restaurant.
They’d spared no expense…this place was BEAUTIFUL!
It had solid cherry paneling, marble floors, state-of-the-art technology and lighting in every room, and gorgeous stainless steel bathrooms with motion sensors. (That was really unusual, at the time.)
The investors lost more than $21 million on the deal. But because of God’s favor, we were able to buy that building for just $6.3 million.
Now it’s our Earth City Campus!
Those investors would NEVER have given the church all those millions of their own free will. But through His favor, God led us to be at the right place at the right time.
I want you to know, God doesn’t play favorites among His children. That same favor is available to ANYONE who will seek Him!
Our church does not participate in depression or financial recessions. It’s against our religion! Instead, we listen to guidance from the Holy Spirit and make use of prophetic gifts.
Because ONE DAY of God’s FAVOR is worth more than a thousand days of our labor!
Have a great day, today! I call you BLESSED!
