Day 13 - Trust Walk

Trust Walk Day 13:  I trust You, Lord.  I shall lack nothing. Psalms 34:9-10

In ministry, you may think that you should be rich or have an unlimited flow of resources.  You trust God, so surely He will give you every whim of your heart, won’t he?  Of course He will!  You ARE feeding His sheep aren’t you?  You ARE doing His will for you aren’t you?   Surely He shall.  You are destined to be rich, so what’s the problem.  Why aren’t you? 

If you look around at pastors, preachers, teachers, or whatever name they want to be called in mega and large scale churches (and even the small ones), you’d definitely think this mindset is true.  They teach ‘name it and claim it, ‘money come to me now’, and ‘the prosperity gospel’.  It’s how they may have gotten rich.  What happened to you? 

Today’s society has been lead to a greedy lifestyle where some ‘people of God’ use every wile of satan to entrap hungry believers into the snare of giving.  This snare keeps the believer broke and broken, wondering how is it that they gave and gave as the ‘person of God’ directed them, yet they have reaped no return.  Isn’t this a principle: you reap what you sow (Galatians 6:7).  But was the ground sown in fertile ground? Is the ground able to produce a good harvest?  In plain terms, are you sowing into a real ‘person of God’ who is following the Word of God, or are you sowing into a person who has watered it down for ‘feel good ministry’?

If any man teach otherwise, and consent not to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which is according to godliness; He is proud, knowing nothing, but doting about questions and strifes of words, whereof cometh envy, strife, railings, evil surmisings, perverse disputings of men of corrupt minds, and destitute of the truth, supposing that gain is godliness: from such withdraw thyself.  But godliness with contentment is great gain.  For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out.  And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.  But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.  For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.  But thou, O man of God, flee these things; and follow after righteousness, godliness, faith, love, patience, meekness. 1 Timothy 6:3-10 (KJV)

This reading didn’t start out with a long scripture reading, rather it was meant to be short and sweet.  First Timothy 6 spoke volumes though. 

If you are following someone who teaches contrary to the Word of God, remove yourself.  Be holy with contentment.  You came in this word with nothing, and you will leave with nothing (did you know this was actually biblical).  You have food, shelter, and clothing. Your basic needs are met.  Can you not be content?  What more do you want? Far too often, money leads mere mortals into many snares which will lead to destruction.  The love of money is the root of all evil (not money, but the love of it).  Many want it, and it has lead them to turn from the true gospel.  Ignore your bank account and follow righteousness and the Fruit of the Spirt.  Stay with God, He will never ‘leave you out to dry’.

Testimony: Lead Moderator, Addreine Young, of The Meeting Place Fellowship shared here story.  For several months, she’d pray and give God the specifics of her needs.  The bill is $168.  She needs $100.  She is required to pay $78.  The rent is due. Time and time again, she left her petition with God.  Time and time again, He provided what she needed and more, often times immediately.  How did this happen!  Well, not only was Ms. Young in tune with God, but those who showed her favor or was used to provide was in tune as well.  Rent was due but forgiven or extended.  $100 was needed and a check was in the mailbox for days.  $168 was needed and a tithe of $170 came immediately.  $78 was needed, and tithes of $100 came in.

O fear the LORD, you his saints: for there is no lack to them that fear him. The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not lack any good thing. Psalm 34:9-10 (KJV)

You see, Mrs. Young took her eyes off her need and place them on her Provider.  She’s learned to trust Him, even when things look dim.  Even when it seems that everywhere she turns, something is due. She lacks no good thing!  He provides for her every need.  She doesn’t concern herself with a due date. Man does not control things.  As long as she remains content with godliness, she will have great gain.  The word says it. 

This reading is not to say that people of God cannot have wealth.  Rather it’s to say He is enough.  He is all you need.  No you can’t eat the paper in the bible, but He will provide what you need.  You may wonder why you are hungry or why you are homeless.  God has decided your path.  His will for you is perfect.  Hungry and homeless does not sound like perfect, so maybe you should blame it on another reason (smile).  It’s not your Daddy. 

If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him? Matthew 7-11 (KJV)

He’s a good, good Daddy.  Can you trust Him?  Won’t you trust Him?  Please!  Trust Him now.  He will never fail you.

Fulfilled,

Keiyia JOYet George
