As I was working today, I was stopped for the Word in the Bible: “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7
So I started to ask: Who can I help today?
Later that same day a friend came to see me, whom needed my help and advice. And we ended up talking about how important it is to bless and help other people, and to watch what we say with our tongue, so it will only be uplifting and positive words that we speak. And watch our reaction when others are saying negative words to us our about us. Right after her visit, I received an email from Brendon Burchard with the subject THANK YOU and in it had a line that grabbed my attention as it confirmed what we just had been talking about. Brendon Burchard said: “I decided not to worry about the critics and instead give my whole heart and effort to those who wanted positivity and progress in life.”
No doubt, that this email was God’s way of confirming and saying that what we just talked about is important.
The next day, I asked the same question: Who can I help today? A few minutes later, I got a text message from someone I knew, saying: “I am not happy.” After some listening and us both speaking, it ended with her saying: “Thank you, now I have a warm feeling of peace inside me. Thank you for being there for me. Thank you for lifting me up when I was down. Thank you for spending time with me.”
Again, God answered the prayer. He sent me one who needed help.
I am not telling this to brag, but it amazes me every day what a wonderful God we have! He answers prayers, and I believe He gave me those stories so I could share them, and give Him all the glory!
In addition, a thought came to me. What if we remembered to ask Him more often? What if we would ask The Almighty God for His advice? What if we asked Him about the economic situation, about our business? I believe that He has all the answers that we need! Nothing is hidden for His eyes! “Ask, and it will be giving to you; seek, and you shall find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”
Yesterday, I asked again: Who can I help today?
I was suddenly reminded to review a few books. One of them was Jeff Walker’s book, “Launch.” And amazingly, my review was helpful for one customer who decided to buy Jeff Walker’s book based on my review. I was able to help someone on Amazon today! Only 1 hour 30 minutes after I reviewed the book, I got a message from Amazon saying thank you for have helped another person decide to buy his book. I was very pleased but mostly amazed that my review could help! Even this was in God’s interest!
I believe our mission is to help people. And, every business that has succeeded has helped many!
