Where To Turn To When Things Look Bad

FB Meyer says; The education of our faith is incomplete till we learn that God’s providence works through loss that is there is a ministry to us through the failure and fading of things. The dwindling brook where Elijah sat is a picture of our lives. Some time later the brook dried up (1 kings 17:7 NIV) is the history of our yesterdays and a prophecy of our tomorrows. Learn the difference between trusting in the gift and trusting in the Giver. The gift may last for a season but the Giver is eternal. If the Lord had led Elijah directly to the widow at Zarephath, he would have missed something that helped make him a better man living by faith. Whenever our direct resources dry up, it is so that we may learn that our hope and help are in God.

One author writes: Sometimes there is not enough money to make ends meet; people tell us to make a budget and we chuckle. We look at the situation and say ‘No way’. That is the time to trust in God. Your possibilities are not limited by past or present circumstances. If there is not enough to pay legitimate expenses, do your best and let go. Trust God to supply your need, then look beyond your wallet. Look to your source. Claim a divine unlimited supply. Do your path. Strive for financial responsibility in thought and action. Ask for wisdom and listen to God’s leadings. Then let go of your fears and your need to control. Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding (Proverbs 3:5 NLT). We all know money is a necessary part of living and so does God.
