Teachable Moments: Faith




Trust in God's providence.

It's really hard for me to trust in God's providence.

Especially when my paycheck isn't bigger than my bills.

Yet, God asks us to give the first 10% of what we have to him. This is to be are act of faith to demonstrate are trust in God and are reliance on him for everything that we have.

But still I worry what will happen when I give that 10% and can't pay for everything else.

But then I realize when I don't give that 10% and when I worry about not having enough, that i'm putting my trust in money and not in God, and that is a very dangerous thing to do my friends. Yet it is SO easy to do.

Thus, when I find myself worrying about not having enough to make ends meet, I have to give it to God. Every time I doubt his providence for me I have to say, "Okay God, I trust you more than money which comes and goes because you I always have".

Real life. Real bills. Real debt.

It can be a harsh reality. But when we put are trust and hope in the Lord he is there to help us. He will Never leave us or forsake us.

Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”
Hebrews 13:5

  1. I just began tithing again, and things are tight, but then I was blessed with some extra unexpected funds this weekend, and I just can't believe that this was a coincidence considering how I've been struggling for the past three months.
