Do you ever feel like you are stuck in life? You’re low on money and you feel like you can’t provide for your family. You are worried and hopeless. If you love God, there should be no reason for you to be worried about where you are going to get money or how you are going to put food on the table. Let me tell you a personal story of how God provided for me and my family!
I have been struggling with some health issues lately and my medical bills are pretty large! My family has been worried lately about how we are going to get enough money to pay for all of the bills along with buying food. It seemed like things were slowly going downward. Little did we know, God had a beautiful plan in store for us.
The day after Christmas my family was watching a movie when all of a sudden we heard a knock on the door. We were surprised because it was about 9 p.m and we figured everyone was home in their beds already! When we opened the door a couple from our church was there holding bags of groceries. A few minutes later, after unloading their van, our kitchen was filled with 26 full bags of groceries! They said they just wanted to do something nice for someone and we popped in their heads. A few days later we were were presented with a $500 check from another group of loved ones. Even our landlord gave us a month of free rent! We are still amazed! This just proved to us that we had nothing to worry about because God always provides for us.
There have been multiple times in my life when God has helped my family financially. This is just one example! Because we love Christ and we trust Him, He is always there for us. He gives us peace and hope because we know we don’t have to worry about anything.
Therefore do not worry, saying, “what shall we eat, or what shall we drink, or what shall we wear.” For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your Heavenly Father knows that you need all these things.
Matthew 6:31, 32
