I've come to the realization that money is not a issue but the mindset behind money. The Bible states in 1 Timothy 6:10, "For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows." So we see here the verse is telling us that when we become so eager for riches, we've missed the point of our true faith. Our faith should be solidified in Christ and Christ alone. Yes, we need money and God knows this, we have bills, we need to eat and take care of our families but how do we trust in the Lord when we can't see it manifesting for us in the physical realm? We can pray all day and still might feel a sense of lack. I love what Jesus said in Matthew 6:26-34, He describes the birds in the air and states " Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?" and then He goes on with describing the lilies of the field in comparison to our worries on materialism, "
My husband and I love digging deep into the word of God for revelation and understanding. If I simply listened to the revelation of man indicating that my blessings are only financial, then I've missed the point of my blessings. The form in which the Lord blesses you financially might be unexpectedly each month, you might not even receive it at the time you expected it. Know that God sees and knows everything that is happening to you. He knows when you have enough and when you don't have enough. He knows how much more you need and exactly how much you need. People with faith, are blessed because they are putting their faith in what is unseen.
Let us meditate on Matthew 6:26-34, understanding that whatever you might be experiencing today, your heavenly Father will make a way for you. Simply place your faith in Him alone and find contentment in your current situation so that you may appreciate the level that God is taking you to.
