Ask God for Help with Your Finances

Philippians 4:19 is an amazing and all-encompassing promise regarding provision. Note these two words: “God will.” It doesn’t say, “He might meet your needs.” It says, “He will take care of your needs.” It’s written as a fact. God is staking his character and his reputation on it.

Then the verse says, “God will take care of everything.” It doesn’t say, “God will meet some of your needs.” It says he’s got them all covered.

Now, it doesn’t say, “God will meet all your greeds.” There’s a big difference between needs and wants. If you’re a parent, do you give your kids everything they want? I hope not. You don’t do that because you love them—and your heavenly Father loves you. He’s not going to give you everything you want, because if he did, you’d be spoiled to death.

He won’t give you everything you want, but he will give you what you need.

Then why do you have financial needs? Did God fail? Did he lie? Did he exaggerate?

No! With every promise, there is a premise; there are conditions and requirements. When God makes a promise, he says, “I’ll do my part, and you do your part.” God’s financial principles are clearly laid out for us in his Word. The Bible discusses many aspects of financial health, including principles of saving, spending, giving, investing, and stewardship. God has given you everything you need for financial stability.

But first, you need to ask for his help. Jesus says, “Ask, using my name, and you will receive, and you will have abundant joy” (John 16:24 NLT).

Many people depend more on their credit card than on Jesus Christ. Here’s a good rule: Before you pay for it, pray for it. Give God a chance to provide before you go out and charge it. Ask him for wisdom to make a good financial decision.

Why does God want you to ask? So he can give. Why does he want to give? So you can receive.

Why does he want you to receive? So you’ll be full of joy.

There is great joy in being obedient to God’s Word when it comes to your finances. God will take care of you. Just ask him!
