God’s will is that we prosper in life, but that doesn’t mean prosperity will automatically happen. For every promise of God there is something you and I must do in order for the promise to come to pass. Too often, Christians want to prosper without doing their part, but it doesn’t work that way.
Matthew 6:25-27 says, “That is why I tell you not to worry about everyday life—whether you have enough food and drink, or enough clothes to wear. Isn’t life more than food, and your body more than clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t plant or harvest or store food in barns, for your heavenly Father feeds them. And aren’t you far more valuable to him than they are?
No matter what financial struggle you’re facing, rest assured that God will bring you through it and meet your need.
“But I don’t know how I’m going to pay my rent!” you say. Take a deep breath and relax. God operates through faith—not fear.
We do not need to worry about getting our basic needs met. God will take care of us in the area of finances as long as we’re seeking Him and walking in obedience to His Word.
Despite Jesus’ admonition not to worry, the majority of Christians still do! God’s ways haven’t become revelation in their hearts. This is a leading cause of why many Christians do not prosper.
Once you get a hold of this truth, you’ll stop worrying about all of your tomorrows. You will no longer expect money to take care of your future instead of God. Why? You no longer need to worry because the God who created tomorrow is the One who delivered you out of yesterday’s trials to bring you triumphantly into today!
Spending time with God, learning you can trust Him to meet your needs, is more important than anything else you do. If you seek Him first by giving God the highest priority every day, your life will change.
