Investing

“You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.”
Jeremiah 29:13 ESV

Stock brokers invest according to the returns they expect to receive. Promising investments are heavily financed. Investors also hedge their bets by investing in numerous areas in smaller amounts. Not placing all of one's eggs in the same basket may be wise when approaching the stock market, but this wisdom does not translate into our relationship with God.

Giving God our leftovers or hedging our bets by dividing our investments only guarantees spiritual failure. Many conclude living for God is not worth it because they have never given God the opportunity to prove himself. Only when we step out in faith is God given access to pour his goodness into our lives.

The promise of finding God comes with only one condition, but it is conditional. The condition is that we step out in faith with our time and money. Faith by its very nature is believing that God is our most worthy investment. When we invest our time and money in His kingdom first, we demonstrate that we believe he is who he claims to be.

Still Seeking His Face,
Pastor Andrew
