Trusting Provision

Comments Off on Trusting Provision

Trusting Provision

One of the things I am struggling with is the feeling of not providing for myself. I won’t be the one who provides the income that Dani and I live off of. I’m used to making money and making enough to support our family, and it is hard for me to think about what it would be like to rely on others for our provision.

I’ve been reading a book that Dani and I received from another couple (who are now overseas) and it is full of challenges to overcome when learning to trust in the Lord for support. It’s been a great resource so far. The biggest theme I’ve learned from that book is that raising support has to be based on biblical principles. And that you need to have an understanding of what the word says concerning money and giving.

So, I’m taking it upon myself to daily pursue what it means for me to rely on God with my finances, specifically when it comes to relying on other believers to give to God through me. It’s a big concept for me to grasp, and for me to learn.

For me, I know that money is how I provide for my family. So, one of these new principles in my life will now be relying on God to provide for me, especially where money is concerned. I know I can’t do it. So I must seek the truth, I must rest in His peace.

May I be able to say like Paul, “I have received full payment and have more than enough.” Open doors, and open my heart to be faithful with what you are showing me. Let my tongue be slow to respond, but quick to speak with the wisdom I seek from your heart. Lord be my passion and my vision.
philippians 4:18
