Poverty or the Fear of Lack of Money

 I have struggled to understand that God wants to provide for me. I have struggled trusting Him to look after me, I thought He did not want me, that He hated me.  Perhaps more than any fear, the fear of lack of money has held me back. For a large part of my life I worried about money.   I have relied on money rather than relying on He Who provides. I have relied on my job, rather than relying on He Who provides.

The fear of lack of money will influence many of your decisions, limiting what you achieve in your life. 

You, yourself, cannot free yourself from it, otherwise you already would have.  You will be bound by it unless God Himself reveals that He can be trusted to provide for you. This lack of understanding that God provides everything required in life causes significant problems in society. Humans can end up living their entire lives trying to provide what has already been provided. 

Matthew 6:25
Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
