But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfected and complete, lacking nothing. – James 1:4
God doesn’t want us to have a lack mentality. He shows us that He created the universe, and He lacked nothing. He had everything He needed to create the world – just words. We can trust Him with our finances.
We don’t have to worry because if we tithe 10% of our income to Him, He is faithful and will bless us financially so that all of our bills will be covered and then some. A father gives good gifts to his children, and the Lord gives us good gifts, too. He does not want us to be so worried about money that we stop offering tithe. Everything comes from the Lord, and He loves a cheerful giver.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, many were hit hard financially. Many people lost their jobs. Many people lost their health insurance, but God is faithful and He will take care of us. Even if we have to cut back and find creative ways to bring in more income, God gives us many employable talents with which to help others. He will never leave us destitute. He always has a plan for our lives. He knows what will happen next, and He has our back. Amen.
