This takes faith but faith is all we need.
This passage from Matthew connects to the above nicely.
I have been a commission only sales person and small business owner for over 30 years and a Christian for the majority of that time. There is comfort, a great comfort, in knowing and trusting God will provide all my needs and plenty of my wants too.
Every person who lives with a budget or responsible for income and spending must know the essential difference between the two; needs & wants. A fool confuses the two. A stupid fool deceives others and himself regarding the difference. The wise book of Proverbs has so much to offer us regarding this topic.
A motto of my business is, ‘No Worries…We Are OnGuard’. We seek to deliver that promise with the implementation of security and safety systems with our services. As much as we strive to ensure that, only God can deliver it consistently and holistically, sometimes inside out.
We must do our part. In verse 33 of the passage from Matthew (a great one to memorize and internalize), we are promoted, actually required, to first seek God’s interest. To move beyond our needs and look unto His. WWJD. To promote and glory up God; not because in any way or shape He needs it but rather because He deserves our love and respect.
When we consider and act upon taking care of His business, He sees to ours in a way that we never could. That often leads to abundance but always our essential needs.
It all boils down to the two great commandments Jesus gave us; to LOVE the Lord our God will ALL our hearts, soul, mind and strength and love others as ourselves (the golden rule).
The first motivational book I read in the 80’s by A.L. Williams as stuck tightly to me and I hope it’s title does with you.
“All I can do is all I can do but all I can do is enough.”
and I add, “Lord willing and I believe He is.”
