Acts 20:35​

New International Version​

35 In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’

So I’m here asking for your help guys.
After some tantrums with The Lord.

He brought up the above verse.

I’ve been praying, boldly for something, and to my dismay, He brings up Acts20:35 as a reminder to focus on His providence instead.

but I just don’t feel it. I believe I give enough!
Obviously not. But....
I’m not in the spirit at all. I’m kinda flat.
I know this is the correct thing to do but I’m all out of umph so to speak.

Prayers please

Dear sister, Could it be that the next verse may be of some assistance?

Your in my prayers.

There are many ways to give, sometimes it is our love and concern, sometimes it is prayers, sometimes it time.

How did God bring this verse to you and are you sure that God did?

May God fill you with his Holy Spirit and fill your heart with the knowledge of God's love and mercy. May God also give you the strength to overcome and endure whatever hardship is troubling you. I don't know what your going through but I do trust that God will work all things together for good as he tells us in Rom 8:28.
