Being Bold During Economic Uncertainty

When you think about it there will always be economic uncertainty. No market is immune to swings. No job is guaranteed forever. No amount of money can ever cover every possible eventuality. This leads to lots of people living in fear. Here is a bit of good news, however. God is in control.

Riches and honor come from you alone, for you rule over everything. Power and might are in your hand, and it is at your discretion that people are made great and given strength. 1 Chronicles 29:12

One of the great things about trusting God with our giving is that we admit that He is in control. By doing this we trust Him for things that only He can do anyway. It all comes from Him. Have you ever thought about the real successes in your life and where they came from? Think about it. The sale that came from nowhere, the promotion that was unexpected, the person that you met by chance who became a business partner, the opportunity that you were not expecting. The fact is God will reward those who trust Him. It does not come from longer hours, neglecting family and church, or even from a winning financial plan. It all comes from God. And He can be trusted.

Prayer for today: God, help me surrender everything in my life to your control
