The Lord asked Noah to build an ark. Not by the riverfront, not by the ocean side, but on dry land. Each plank, each nail, and each cut was a testimony that he trusted in God. The finances for such an undertaking were enormous, but the command of God was clear. “Make thee an ark of gopher wood.” Genesis 6:14


If God asks you and me to do something, it’s because He has already provided a way for it to be accomplished. God provided the wood, the manpower, and the finances to accomplish Noah’s great task. He provided some in advance and others as they walked by faith.


Today, God may ask us to take a leap of faith. To start a new ministry that will impact the community. To start a new Pathfinder club or Vacation Bible School for the children of the church. Often you may sense God calling you to step forward. I want you to understand that in every venture in the Bible, God provided the resources as His people moved forward by faith. Remember Abraham, Joseph, Moses, Esther, Deborah, and Daniel, to name a few.


The church budget includes many ministries that will enhance the lives of the church and the local community. Today as you give, you can become an Esther, a Daniel, or a Joseph for the Lord. When God touches your heart, give so you and others can take that step of faith and fulfill His will through your life.
