Money can be one of the biggest sources of stress in our lives. This list will help you learn how to take your fears about finances to God!
Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have. For God has said,“I will never fail you. I will never abandon you.”
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.
Here is the bottom line: do not worry about your life. Don’t worry about what you will eat or what you will drink. Don’t worry about how you clothe your body. Living is about more than merely eating, and the body is about more than dressing up.
Look at the birds in the sky. They do not store food for winter. They don’t plant gardens. They do not sow or reap—and yet, they are always fed because your heavenly Father feeds them. And you are even more precious to Him than a beautiful bird. If He looks after them, of course He will look after you.
Worrying does not do any good; who here can claim to add even an hour to his life by worrying?
So do not consume yourselves with questions: What will we eat? What will we drink? What will we wear?
Outsiders make themselves frantic over such questions; they don’t realize that your heavenly Father knows exactly what you need.
Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and then all these things will be given to you too.
Think about those beautiful wild lilies growing over there. They don’t work up a sweat toiling for needs or wants—they don’t worry about clothing. Yet the great King Solomon never had an outfit that was half as glorious as theirs!
Look at the grass growing over there. One day it’s thriving in the fields. The next day it’s being used as fuel. If God takes such good care of such transient things, how much more you can depend on God to care for you, weak in faith as you are.
Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything; tell God your needs, and don’t forget to thank him for his answers.
If you do this, you will experience God’s peace, which is far more wonderful than the human mind can understand. His peace will keep your thoughts and your hearts quiet and at rest as you trust in Christ Jesus.
Let heaven fill your thoughts; don’t spend your time worrying about things down here
1 Peter 5:7
Let him have all your worries and cares, for he is always thinking about you and watching everything that concerns you.
When I needed the Lord, I looked for Him; I called out to Him, and He heard me and responded. He came and rescued me from everything that made me so afraid.
Place your trust in the Eternal; rely on Him completely; never depend upon your own ideas and inventions.
Give Him the credit for everything you accomplish, and He will smooth out and straighten the road that lies ahead.
