It is important that I trust God with my finances. If I want God to bless me financially, I must remain focused on the truth that he is the source of my finances and he is the one who supplies my needs.
What does that mean? It means I’m not looking to an employer for my security. I’m not looking to my savings for security. I’m not looking to anyone or anything other than God to supply my needs.
When I turn on the water, I don’t really think the water comes from the faucet. I know that the water really comes from a reservoir. It just comes to me through the faucet. In the same way, the income that God wants to give you may come through a job or through something else. But the source is God.
This means I don’t need to worry about which faucet he uses to supply my needs. In a sense he says, “If I turn off one faucet, I can just as easily turn on another. If you lose one job, I can give you another. I am your source, not your job. I am your source, not your bank account.”
Good word from Rick Warren today
