I know of many people right now who currently have serious financial stresses in their lives.
Those who have recently lost jobs, others like myself whose businesses have been in a major decline for months & even years, some who are experiencing large and unexpected expenses that are beyond anything they can afford, those (like my daughters Africa team with YWAM) who are missionarys looking for the support of others to come thru so that they can continue to do the work of God, as well as a few who have made poor financial decisions and are suffering the consequences. (haven’t we all been there!)
Financial stress can lead to great anxiety, strained relationships and even health problems. Let’s look at and believe the Word so we can quit worrying and trust God to provide all of our needs!
“For this reason I say to you, do not be worried about your life, as to what you will eat or what you will drink; nor for your body, as to what you will put on. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing?
Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they? And who of you by being worried can add a single hour to his life? And why are you worried about clothing? Observe how the lilies of the field grow; they do not toil nor do they spin, yet I say to you that not even Solomon in all his glory clothed himself like one of these. But if God so clothes the grass of the field, which is alive today and tomorrow is thrown into the furnace, will He not much more clothe you?
You of little faith! Do not worry then, saying, `What will we eat?’ or `What will we drink?’ or `What will we wear for clothing?’ For the world eagerly seeks all these things; for your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.
So do not worry about tomorrow; for tomorrow will care for itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:25-34
