“My God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:19 ESV
Where do you put your security?
Putting your trust in your bank account, your job, or your investments is a recipe for heartache, because you can lose all of those things.
You have to put your trust and security in something that cannot be taken from you: God! If you want God’s blessing on your life, depend on his resources and not your own.
Your security shouldn’t be in your job. Your job is a channel, but God is your source. If you understand this, you’ll have less stress in your life.
If you turned on the faucet in your kitchen and no water came out, what would you do? Would you say, “Oh my, the world has run out of water there’s no water coming out of the faucet, so there must not be any left in the whole world”?
Of course not. You’d know the problem is not with the source. There’s plenty of water in the world. The problem is the channel. It’s gotten blocked one way or another.
If one channel gets blocked inn your life and the “faucet” stops working, God can turn on another faucet just as easily. If God closes a door in your life, he can open another door. And if another door closes he can open a window, and you crawl through it.
Jobs may come and go. Bank accounts rise and fall. Economies go up and down. Home prices can peak or hit bottom.
You can trust in God’s unlimited resources for your security.
