Financial difficulty can be a painful test of faith.
Have you ever fed your kids popcorn or cake for a meal because it’s all you had? Ever gone through unemployment or “lost everything”? We have.
Blessed Are The Poor
Proclaiming the faithfulness of God is one of my favorite activities. For real. I never tire of it.
In a season of incredible financial hardship, God gave us a treasure trove of Truth and built up our faith in unimaginable ways. He provided for us through real-life miracles. But more than that, He proved to us that He is true to His Word.
Great Is Thy Faithfulness
When we had nothing, when we were trying everything, when all of our efforts came up short and there was nothing more we could do, we dug into God’s Word.
He promised to provide all our needs (Philippians 4:19). He did that, but not in the ways or in the timing we expected. He did far beyond what we expected.
That season of poverty and stress was life-changing. The impact it had on our faith laid a foundation that has gotten us through countless other trials and hardships.
I want to encourage you today. Don’t give up hope.
