The Poverty of My Faith

Financial hardships suck. There’s just no way around it. My faith is always tested most in these times where there seems to be one financial crisis after another. To arrive at a place of absolute trust in God means traveling through these passages where nothing is visible and all we have to rely upon is our knowledge of God and the deepness of our relationship with Him. But what happens when we no longer feel OR see God? Like the blind making our way in the dark, we must now rely solely on our knowledge of the familiarity of having passed this way before. When our senses leave us, this is all we have to go on. I’ve been this way before, a thousand times, but now I find out if I have learned with eyes shut tight to trust Him or… if I was peeking the whole time.

Depending upon my reaction to difficult seasons, whether they be financial or in some other area, the poverty or wealth of my soul will be spent and all that will remain will be accounts stored up in my faith. Will I be found to have a reservoir stored up there? Or will that be bankrupt as well?

You cannot simply know God will provide or get you through; it isn’t even enough to believe that it is true… you must live like this is true. I will never live this truth until I stop living in the temporal and start living in the Spiritual. Peace, SAG

 

Today’s Scripture: Malachi 3:10

Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the LORD of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need.
