Handling Financial Worries

May 20, 2020

Read Luke 12:29-31

“And do not seek what you should eat or what you should drink, nor have an anxious mind. For all these things the nations of the world seek after, and your Father knows that you need these things. But seek the kingdom of God, and all these things shall be added to you.” (NKJV)

 
Reflect

Do you trust that God knows what you need?

What can we do when finances look like they’re falling apart, when we’ve worked hard, paid bills, and tried to save, but the rug gets pulled out from under us? Here’s the answer: Don’t stop bringing your concerns to God instead of feeling ashamed for having them or feeling discouraged about them. By getting our fears out of our heads and into the light of day, things won’t seem so overwhelming.

Here’s what I’m learning: Worry is much like an avalanche. Once the rocks or anxious thoughts start rolling, they are hard to stop, especially if we’re alone with them.

Whatever your anxieties or concerns are about finances, give them to God one by one and be specific about your needs. Talk and pray about these heavy burdens with a friend. If worried thoughts about your financial situation resurface, which they often do, give them back to God right then. Release them as many times as necessary until your mind is free from fretting about them.

 
Pray

Lord, you are my Shepherd. You give me everything I need so I won’t be in want. Help me to stay close to You. Amen.
