Raise Your StockPosted on April 25th, 2012.
With 11.8 million iPad 3s being sold and 35.1 million iPhones flying of shelves worldwide and each single stock climbing up to $644 per share, Apple has definitely made a name for itself over the last few years. With their stock expecting to soar to higher heights after the anticipated merger with China Mobile, the world’s largest mobile carrier, we can expect Apple’s stock to increase all the more.
Apple, Inc is an example of what you can achieve yourself. Researching your favorite industry, embracing creative minds, and stepping out on faith can also net your first quarter earnings just over $46 billion dollars as well (and yes, there’s no mistake – that’s a B not an M).
I’m sure being a billionaire and being able to cultivate a company to earn these extraordinary amounts of money came at a price. Working on prototypes day and night while sacrificing pleasures now for riches later was a bit hard at first, but I’m sure Steve Jobs and his team knew that their new idea was sure to be worth it – and boy, was he right. But he is no better than you. You have the same Spirit working within you (Zechariah 4.6). You are more powerful than you could ever imagine.
Walk in the vocation God has called you to, and prepare for next-level living because He wants to bless you exceedingly and abundantly more than all you could ever imagine (Ephesians 3.20), but He is looking to see if you believe Him.
We are judged by our works (1 Peter 1.17). Faith without works is dead, so how are you setting up the next generation? How are you making sure today that your family will be taken care of the tomorrow that you don’t see? Are you paying the costs to be the boss? If we aren’t passionately pursuing our purpose, we are passively working against it. Ask God for help and then seek the knowledge necessary to rule the land so we can get back to Eden and live on top! This raises your stock! God has invested in you His Son, so how will you show your gratitude? When opportunity knocks, answer the door because if you don’t get up and check the peephole, you may send your dream to your neighbor.
Tell us about the plans you’re making to “Pass the Baton” God’s way. And even if you don’t do that, at least leave the number to your stockbroker.
