How To Survive in Trying Times

"Mr. Okey we have been following you and we see that you are very successful, you are not affected by the economic crisis and we see that you are a very spiritual person, what is the secret of your success?"

Okey lifted his hands at the TV studio and said "I give all glory to God because it is in Him I live breathe and have my being, I will share my principles with you.

The times are getting harder but there are certain principles that God has given man that are recession proof.

1. The principle of gratitude; whatever you are grateful to God for will increase. How do you show gratitude? God is not visible and whenever He does something for you, He goes to hide to see what you will do. Smart people give the glory to God and thank Him openly by sharing their testimony with others.

It's always a pleasure to give someone a gift and whenever you do, you are also observing the attitude of the receiver to see if the person is grateful. A grateful person will always get more.  Be grateful to God and man whenever they do anything for you and also make sure your gratitude is unforgettable.  The bible says in Revelations 12:11 (KJV) And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony.

2. The principle of tithing and giving: I once had a colleague who didn't believe in tithing, he should be in his 40s but he is still an employee, he was a senior officer earning around 300,000 Naira when I was an intern earning 50,000 Naira. Today I think he is earning less than that and he is still an employee, I on the other hand now own my business and I make more money than he could in a year.

Everyone pays tithe! You may be paying it to hospitals or to armed robbers or to strange women, everyone pays tithe! If you are not a tither, I don't care how much you have, you are limited and your money cannot last. The bible says everyone one who doesn't tithe is cursed with a curse ( Malachi 3:9) this simply means that as far as true success is concerned, a non tither will never have it.

Someone may say I know successful people who don't tithe and they are doing very well. Does Bill Gates tithe?  Yes he does even though he may not know it. The bible tells us that whenever you give to the poor, you give to God! Proverbs 19:17  Bill Gates is the biggest giver in the world that's why he is the richest man in the world!

The bible says in Proverbs 11:24-25 (NIV) 24One person gives freely, yet gains even more;
another withholds unduly, but comes to poverty.
25A generous person will prosper;
whoever refreshes others will be refreshed.

The antidote to lack is giving! Whatever you walk away from determines what you walk into. If you have never given 100,000 you will always struggle for it but the moment you give it, money starts coming to you at that level.

Do you want more money in this trying times? Increase your giving and more will come back.

May God help us all in Jesus name.

My 20 year dream is to see the Gospel preached to a billion people through the social media. You too can be a social media evangelist, kindly share and repost this Gospel of Jesus Christ so that others can be blessed just like you have been blessed. Thank you for reading.
