Financial Security

August 13, 2009

“Everything in the heavens and earth is yours, O Lord, and this is your kingdom.” – 1 Chronicles 29:11 (TLB)

There is a ton of financial insecurity today. When the economy is good, people worry it may go in the tank. When it’s bad—pessimism reigns. All this adds up to a lot of financial insecurity especially after the holidays and bills come due.

But there is one key to financial security—understanding that God owns it all. That’s not easy to do. For many, it is the toughest decision they ever make. That’s why Jesus said you’ve got to choose where you’re going to put your trust in God or money.

Trusting in money in the form of a job, bank account, or investments—without God—always leads to worry, anxiety, and a spirit of greed or hoarding.

Trusting in God brings inner peace. His principles, as found in the Bible, teach us how to be good money managers. God promises to meet our needs—not our wants, but our needs.

So in these days of financial insecurity, find your security in God—not money. Understand He owns it all and seek to manage His money His way. It’s the key to financial security.
