Call Out to God in Faith

Have you ever cried out to God over your finances? I have! 

When I first joined Crown staff, I had to raise my own support. Having left the business world, I was used to a salary, benefits and good commissions. Although passionate about the opportunity to serve, raising support was humbling.

Shortly before my oldest son’s wedding, my bank account was near zero.

We had four sons and the burden was heavy. I threw myself on the mercy of God and I asked Him to work in a supernatural way. He did, and I’ve never doubted His ability to provide since.

God works in mysterious ways. He often moves in the hearts of His people to encourage and equip one another. It’s beautiful to experience!

Proverbs 2:1-5 says: “My son, if you accept my words and store up my commands within you, turning your ear to wisdom and applying your heart to understanding—indeed, if you call out for insight and cry aloud for understanding, and if you look for it as for silver and search for it as for hidden treasure, then you will understand the fear of the Lord and find the knowledge of God.”

God is faithful, loving and kind. He wants us to lean on Him, but when we act independently and fail to cry out in prayer, we miss His goodness. Believing He hears gives us the ability to watch and wait on Him to lead and provide. Time reveals the sweet reality of His benevolent nature.

So, call out to Him today. He knows your needs and He wants you to trust Him fully.
