Many people struggle with fear, especially when it comes to their finances. Attitudes of fear and anxiety over our money, relationships, and circumstances can be a sign of bondage.
Faith is the opposite of fear. Hebrews 11 defines faith as “the assurance of things hoped for and the conviction of things not seen.”
If we had no needs, we would have no need of faith. But, our precious Father, knew needs were essential for us to develop faith in Him.
It is vital that we view our future needs as opportunities to exercise and develop our faith. And, if we believe that God is “a rewarder of those who seek Him” then we can place our life in His hands.
How do we trust God?
First, we must diligently seek His direction for our life. We are all created in His image with a specific purpose different from others.
Second, we must make a conscious act of trusting God and remember He is in control. Knowing God’s ways are not our ways, we must keep an eternal perspective and live according to the financial principles He has revealed in the Word.
Third, pray fervently. Prayer is God’s secret weapon and the key to unlocking His blessings and power. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”
