Money

I thought God did not want me, let alone want to provide for me. Perhaps more than any fear, the fear of lack of money has controlled me.  I have thought it was up to me to provide for me. I have struggled giving things away to people who needed them. 

Do we provide for ourselves or does God? If God provides for us but we don't understand that He provides for us we can spend a large portion of our lives trying to provide what has already been provided. This causes significant problems in society (debt).  The lack of understanding that the provision already exists takes us away from the provision that actually exists. It creates a fear around the lack of money.  Of ourselves we cannot free ourselves from this fear. We first need to receive an understanding that God, Whoever He Is wants to provide for us and has already provided for us. We need to understand that God cares more about us than He does about " things. Once we have received this understanding we will begin to understand that any money, houses, etc are not a product of us, rather they have been given to us from God.   We will no longer trust ourselves to provide, rather we will trust God. " This allows us to no longer be "as attached" to "things" freeing us up to help others with what we have been given. We become people that can be trusted to be honest with what we have received.   


Luke 16:10 Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much.

Matthew 6:24 No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money.

Mark 6:8 These were his instructions: “Take nothing for the journey except a staff—no bread, no bag, no money in your belts.

 1 Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil. Some people, eager for money, have wandered from the faith and pierced themselves with many griefs.
