In HIS Presence


Read: Ecclesiastes 11:1-8 

Meditation verse: 

“In the morning sow your seed, and in the evening do not withhold your hand:  for you do not know which will prosper. Either this or that, or whether, both  alike will be good” (Ecclesiastes 11:6) 

To achieve financial security in today’s economy, you will need to create at least  one additional stream of income to your major source. Creating multiple  streams of income, is no longer a luxury but a necessity, which will ensure that  you are protected against unavoidable ups and downs. Today’s reading enjoins  you to “cast your bread upon the waters… for you do not know what evil will be  on the earth”. This means that you should be willing to take risks and seize the  opportunities that life offers rather than trying always to play it safe. You must  be prepared, for life offers no guarantees. 

God has equipped you with gifts, talents, abilities, and resources that can be  used to generate various streams of revenue. He has commanded you to sow  not only in the morning, but in the evening as well. There is so much you can do  with the gifts that God has put inside you. If you are knowledgeable on a subject matter, create multiple streams of income by teaching it to others, writing and  publishing books on the subject, hosting seminars or taking on speaking  engagements. If you have a musical ability, produce an album, write songs for  others, give voice lessons, or teach people how to play musical instruments.  

God’s blessings are always manifested in multiple streams. In blessing Abraham,  He gave him flocks, herds, silver, gold, menservants, maidservants, camels, and  donkeys (Genesis 24:35). Isaac was no different. He had possessions of flocks, of  herds and a great number of servants. Isaac prospered, continued to prosper,  until he became very prosperous (Genesis 26:13-14).  

God has made this same grace of multiple resources available to you. He has  given you the grace to excel and be sufficient in all things, so that you may  overflow with abundance for every good work (2 Corinthians 9:8). Do not be like  the woman in 2 Kings 4:1, who found herself in financial difficulty when her only  source of income dried up with the death of her husband. Create multiple  streams of income. “In all labour there is profit, but idle chatter leads only to  poverty” (Proverbs 14:23).

Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?

He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest.

Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:

Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.

If you prayed this prayer, send me an email at I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my book; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your new life in Christ.

I look forward to hearing from you.
