Financial difficulties

This year has certainly proven to be a year filled with financial difficulties for many people. Some of you might be experiencing fear, guilt, uncertainty, and even desperation. You might even be doubting God’s promises and His goodness. You’re trying to be find direction, peace, and hope.

Please remember that the God of all is always there for you. Remember to pray. Pray for His provision for your basic needs: food, shelter, clothing, utilities, and transportation.

Philippians 4:19 ESV
○ “And my God will supply every need of yours according to His riches in
glory in Christ Jesus.”

Luke 12:22-24 NIV
○ “Then Jesus said to his disciples: “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about
your life, what you will eat; or about your body, what you will wear. For life
is more than food, and the body more than clothes. Consider the ravens:
They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God feeds
them. And how much more valuable you are than birds!”

Philippians 4:6-7 NLT
○ “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”

Pray that He provide you with wisdom for income-producing opportunities, budgeting, debt repayment, and community assistance. Go to: https://dfats.org/aunt-bertha/ to find out about resources available in your area.

Philippians 4:6-7 NLT
○ “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.”

● James 1:5-6 ESV
○ “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all
without reproach, and it will be given him. But let him ask in faith, with no
doubting, for the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea that is driven
and tossed by the wind.”

Remember to have faith to trust the Lord’s promises to meet and provide guidance.

Pray that the Holy Spirit reveal the work the Lord may be doing during this crisis. He might be shifting your focus from earthly things to heavenly treasures.

Deuteronomy 28:12 ESV
○ “The Lord will open to you his good treasury, the heavens, to give the rain
to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hands. And you
shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.”
● Malachi 3:10 ESV
○ “Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my
house. And thereby put me to the test, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not
open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.”
● Proverbs 3:9-10 NIV
○ “Honor the Lord with your wealth, with the firstfruits of all your crops; then your barns will be filled to overflowing, and your vats will brim over with new wine.”

Above all, pray for thankfulness that everything we have belongs to God. We are all just managers of His resources.

He is always there for you. He wants you to surrender yourselves to Him. To surrender to His good and perfect will.
