How much money do you need?
Hebrew 13:5 - Let your conversation (way of life) be without covetousness (free from love for money); and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
We all have needs and a way of living, but as more money comes into our lives our way of living changes and our needs increases. And as our needs increase we need more money. Then when the money comes our way of life again changes! In this vicious circle God gets squeezed out more and more, till we loose Him totally.
God is our provider and He promises us that He will provide us in all our needs. But if we create artificial needs then, can we expect God to provide? Secondly if we do not trust Him then, where will our provisions come from?
Our being blessed and being satisfied in all our needs is a blessing which we received via Abraham. Abraham was blessed in all areas of his life in all his needs and much more, but he was a responsible person. Before we start asking the Lord for more, let us ask ourselves are we as responsible like Abraham? Responsibility does not mean only towards our family, but also towards our own self and mainly towards God.
[ Prayer Starter ]
Father God, You are my provider. All my needs are met in You. Lord, forgive me for the times I have being anxious and did not trust in You for my provisions. Although we labor, Lord help me to focus my eyes on You to meet my needs. Also make me more responsible like father Abraham to receive your blessing like him. I make this prayer in Jesus' Name, Amen.
