“The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the LORD of hosts.”

Haggai‬ 2:8

The need for finance in this world today has been on the increase with virtually everything increasing in price and inflation cut across the world. The Scriptures bear witness to the fact that money answers all things, Ecclesiastes‬ ‭10:19‬‬ “A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things.” And there is an ever increasing need in the area of finance for people even the believers as well because to advance the kingdom work, resources are needed but we are always of good cheer because we as believers put our trust in the creator who made everything including money just as he said in our opening text Haggai 2 vs 8. It is better to trust in God than in man Psalm‬ ‭118:8‬‬ “It is better to trust in the LORD Than to put confidence in man.”

Should I trust God alone in the area of finances and not work at all?, Not exactly, trust God totally that he will prosper the work of your hands because that’s his desire for you. God is indeed interested in we working diligently and prospering in it, Proverbs‬ ‭22:29‬‬ “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; He shall not stand before mean men.” As long as you are diligent in your work and you put your trust in God, you will prosper.

Why then should I trust God and not work alone?, it’s because it’s only the blessings of God that makes rich and adds no sorrow in it; Proverbs‬ ‭10:22‬‬ “The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, And he addeth no sorrow with it.” Knowing to trust God in the area of finance is actually great wisdom to them that know because whenever you are burdened financially, just cast your cares on him 1 Peter‬ ‭5:7‬‬ “casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” And he shall give you rest, Matthew‬ ‭11:28‬‬ “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.”

Philippians 4 vs 19 says “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.” This alone assures us that our needs are met by the riches of Christ glory. Psalms 23 vs 1 “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.”, in as much as you have him as your shepherd you shall not want. Trusting in God in the area of finance as well brings peace in that area Isaiah‬ ‭26:3‬‬ “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in thee.”

Brethren trusting in God is the ultimate way to attaining financial stability and growth and all you have to do is commit your ways and business unto the lord and he will surely fulfill all he has said to do Psalm‬ ‭37:5‬‬ “Commit thy way unto the LORD; Trust also in him; And he shall bring it to pass.” You can never go wrong in trusting God because as the saying goes “if trusting God is wrong, then I never want to be right”. When others complain about inflation and economic problems, we will say we are increased on all sides Job‬ ‭22:29‬‬ “When men are cast down, then thou shalt say, there is lifting up; And he shall save the humble person.”

Put your trust totally in him because he has never forsaken those that seek him and trust in him Psalm‬ ‭9:10‬‬ “And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: For thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.” And remember you cannot put your trust in God and man or any other thing at the same time, your trust must be totally on the one,God. Matthew‬ ‭6:24‬‬ “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”
