Will God Take Care of Me

During these difficult times, many are asking "Will God Take Care of Me?" because they are facing situations that they never in their wildest dreams thought they would encounter. Virtually every family I know is suffering financial setbacks and worries and the root of this is the outcome of confusing what we WANT with our actual needs. The greed and dishonesty of a few have certainly brought us to a difficult time.

Will God provide for me in the manner to which I've become accustomed? That all depends! God promised to provide for our needs, not our wants. And He is the only one who knows exactly what we need and when we need it and I ask you do you really think that luxury has made people happy?

My faith and many inspirational Bible verses tell me that God will stand by me and supply what I need so long as I'm patient and willing to wait. Waiting on God can be difficult because he doesn't work according to our calendar. However, we can comfort in the knowledge that as we are struggling with a need that He in His wisdom already knows the need as He knows all things.

Knowing the answer to the question, will God take care of me provides comfort to my anxious soul. I know this because scripture assures me that if I wait on God, in faith, that He will provide.

Why would He let us reach the point of desperation? Perhaps this is to lead us to renew our dependence on Him and bring us back to the point of child like faith depending on him for all things.

My husband and I are working hard to get out of debt and keep from losing our home. It seems to be a neverending battle! LOL

During this struggle we have experienced miracles, like a friend traded us a minivan when I had a set of twins in exchange for our compact car just in time because there was no way we could squeeze three babies in carseats in our tiny car.

It seems that just when we think we can’t make it, God surprises us with unexpected blessings. God has proven to us through all this that abundance is NOT what's important and that He will be taking care of our basic needs through his mercy and wisdom! Praise God!

I thank God for directing me to your site because indeed I was a little worried about my situation. However, God does know what we need and lack.

I am just going to continue to stand on his word. I find it to be easy to give the advice but when it comes back to me how do I stand on that word. God tries us on our words to let us know what we truly believe.

I started a business and started walking by faith. It just seems nothing is working as I want it to but God knows all. Although the finances are not coming, I am being blessed in other measures. I will continue to walk in faith and stand on the word and see it through. God always shows up on time.
