My Faith in the LORD

I'm going to be public about my Faith. We are auctioning our commercial building. we owe $85,000 on it, and we are auctioning it with NO RESERVE, ABSOLUTE. I am posting this here to show that the Lord Jesus Christ Answers prayer. Stay tuned, and see the Lord at work.

Please don't make this thread into an argument thread PLEASE.

When I was back there in Seminary school
There was a person there who put forth the proposition that you can petition the Lord with prayer
Petition the Lord with prayer
Petition the Lord with prayer
You cannot petition the Lord with prayer




. . . and of course, if the petition to the divine works, the proceeds will be completely donated to benefit your faith?

I have some missionaries in my family. When they came to town visiting my grandmother, they would talk about all of the challenges their ministry would face. When asked how they would conquer these obstacles, they would simply say, "The Lord will provide."

Their children would always make sure to stop in Wichita when traveling from their christian college in Canada to their family in Texas with various car issues, no clothes, food, etc. When asked how they would make it to their destination, they would simply say, "The Lord will provide."

That was all hogwash. It was family members and other sympathetic people writing them checks. So unless my grandmother and others became Gods at some point, the only people providing were the ones giving the handouts.

I'll never forget when the missionaries were in town one time staying at my grandmothers, where my 500SL (which used to be hers) was being stored. The patriarch of the bunch told my grandmother, "The lord was calling him to drive that car around the country so he could gain support for his ministry."

Thankfully, even she didn't take that BS.

What is the building appraised at? Unless its very high, why take the risk at no reserve? Iwould hope you are also putting your faith in your building being worth at least what you owe on it. If its appraised at 200k and brings 120k, do you think this was divine intervention? Would you post on the forum as such?

If it brings $10,000, will you put your faith in the lord to come up with the extra?

I believe the devil is tempting you to sell the building. The Lord wants you to trust him for his continued provision and pray to get the money to pay off the building.

Good luck, Robert. Trust in the Lord, and you'll do fine. You're faith in selling it with no reserve is greater than mine...I would have at minimum a $75K reserve in place, leaving you with only $10K to raise to get out of the debt.

Does Luke 4:12 apply here?

Are you suggesting the Lord's going to put in a $20k bid?

What is it going to use for ID in order to transfer the money? I assume it would win because who in their right mind would bid against a God?

I think you might have things a little confused.

When someone says "the Lord will provide" they don't mean literally "God will walk up to my front door and hand me X that I need."

What exactly does it mean? "I'm going to roll the dice and take my chances without deliberate planning." ??

Yes, what does it mean?

The lord is working through us to write the checks, much like the missionary the lord is working through him to spread the word.

Is that the same way the lord is working through the rescuer that accidentally ran over and killed the 16 year old girl after surviving a plane crash? Was that his plan as well?

This is not me being facetious. I am honestly trying to understand, and never had anyone who could logically elaborate.

If its all a part of his plan, then he is responsible for all of the good, and all of the accidental tragedies in the is world.
