When you can’t make ends meet

“Those who trust in the Lord will lack no good thing.” Ps 34:10 NLT


Have you lost your job? Are you facing the possibility of losing your home or going bankrupt? Are you in the toughest place you’ve ever been? Paul “suffered the loss of all things” (Php 3:8 NAS), but he didn’t stay there. He went on to say, “My God shall supply all your need” (Php 4:19 NKJV). And God can do that for you—with or without a paycheck or some other anticipated source of income. The psalmist said, “Those who trust in the Lord will lack no good thing.” One of the things you have to watch out for is Satan’s worst-case-scenario talk. If you allow him, he will paint mental images of you living in a cardboard box, under a bridge. Stand on God’s Word today and declare: “Lord, You said if I’m willing and obedient, I will enjoy the best You have to offer (See Isa 1:19). You promise to surround me with favor (See Ps 5:12). Your Word says that You can do more than anything I could even ask or think, according to Your power that works within me (See Eph 3:20). Even though nothing seems to be going right for me just now, give me faith to believe You for good things and better days. Your Word tells me to be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let my requests be made known to You. That Your peace, which surpasses human understanding, will guard my heart and mind (See Php 4:6-7). Lord, honor Your Word today, in the name of Jesus, Amen.”
