January 18, 2020 Rick Warren Devotional :- In God We Trust
“God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19 ESV).
The first thing is to understand that God is your provider, regardless of where you work. He’s the one who supplies your every need, and he may do that through your employer. If you think something or someone else is the source, then you’re always going to be nervous, because you can lose your job, money, or possessions.
But with God you never have to wonder if your needs are going to be met. Everything belongs to him anyway! Romans 11:36 says, “For everything comes from God alone. Everything lives by his power, and everything is for his glory” (TLB).
If one water faucet is turned off, God can turn on another just as easily. If you lose one job, he can easily give you another. If God closes one door, he can open another. If all the doors are closed, he can open a window.
When you understand that and you choose to trust God, you lose the stress of trusting in money and other people.
The Bible says in Philippians 4:19, “God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (ESV). God will meet all your needs! And he knows best what those needs are—and how to meet them.
Money management starts with this question: In whom or what do you place your trust?
When you place your trust in God, you get up every morning and say, “God, it all belongs to you. It all comes from you. You are my provider, not anybody else, and I’m going to trust in you to meet my needs.”
Not only will trusting in God lower your stress, but it also will allow you to begin to see how he wants to bless you.
