I might be the only person on earth that struggles with having faith in God’s provision but I doubt it.
It’s so easy to find ourselves back in the rut of doubting God and the fact that He cares enough about us to meet our needs.
It can be especially easy to doubt when we place more of our focus on late bills, lost income and rising prices.
With all of this evidence staring us in the face each day it can be hard to believe that things will actually get better financially. While I have not mastered my fears about finances I do know the solution for overcoming those fears.
First, we must make a spiritual decision to trust God. We must choose to trust Him even when;
The bills are do and there’s not enough money.
When the major appliances break down one after the other.
When something stops working on your car.
When you’ve been on multiple job interviews and have not been hired yet.
We can focus on all of the problems or we can turn our focus to God’s promises. It’s His promises that change us and our situation. The promises are what allows us to have peace even when things look a mess.
We can go back to worrying, sulking and complaining or we can be transformed and renewed. The only way that’s going to happen is if we replace the old way of thinking with a better way. Romans 2:12
To do this, we must first get our hearts into a posture surrender. A heart surrendered to God always precedes a renewed mind. If it takes saying it to yourself, the devil and to God, just come out and say, “I’m trusting God (period)“.
Once you’ve made up your mind, you’ll need to fortify decision with a steady diet of God’s word. If you have a budget book or homemaking binder, you should have theses verses in there.
I suggest reciting one or more of the verses below daily but especially before:
opening a bill or paying a bill.
managing your check book.
going grocery shopping.
going on a job interview.
