It is so easy to lose our trust in God, but i learn more and more each day he is right there blessing each of us that seek his kingdom. Without knowing when , how or why you are blessed and it is always from the grace and goodness of God.The weekness of our hearts, gives us doughts, but the goodness of God fights that dought and replaces it with truth...............God Bless

. God will give us what we need for each day. he loves us infinitely, and our real home is up there, in heaven. consider yourself fortunate to not be weighed down with riches that lead so many away from God.

I think most people live from pay to pay. I am going through some financial adjustments, just took on a car payment, kinda of scary, but when I tithe faithfully the Lord IS my provider, and miraculously all the bills are met, I'm not sure how, since my outgoig is more than my incoming..the Lord is awesome..thats all I know. Try tithing 10% & see What the Lord turns it into..you can't out give the lord. Amen.

I think I would encourage you by saying it is easier with God than without Him.
And He is trusting us by giving us even a little. If we are faithful with a little - and I think this includes tithing - God notices. Luke 16:10 part of a parable to consider.
I like most of the advice you already have here.
Thanks for sharing. Remembering you in prayer.
Another study is "Prosper" Psalm 122 and 2 Peter 1:2-4

I've learned the hard way that the most important financial maneuver is to tithe. The word tithe literally means tenth. The scriptures tell us to give God one tenth of our firstfruits (gross wages). When we show our faith in Him by tithing, He makes sure our needs are met. If we don't tithe, we are telling God that we don't trust Him to do what He's promised. (bad move)

First figure out how you got into this fix, how much you are responsible for.
Pray firmly and ask clearly for the help you need.
End your prayer: "May your will be done!" and then TRUST that he will provide the best solution!

Cristian, I used to be so poor I was sleeping in my sometimes working car and owed everybody thousands of dollars. Now I'm very prosperous. God taught me how to get out of debt and how to prosper. Those are two very different things. It'll take more words to tell you how than we can write here, so e-mail me. God bless you! jeffr5976

Just because you are going through a stressful situation does not mean it is God's fault. Do you balance your checkbook, do you over spend, do you buy things you don't need...? These are questions I wonder about. If none of thisis the problem are you in the right profession. Please email me so we can talk.

Trust God, I have several court hearings that I am facing. Which are going to require me to pay at least $1,200.00. I just started working a part-time job at little more than minimum wage. I have immediate outstanding debt at about 900.00. I don't worry. Because I know without a shadow of a doubt,God has got it under control. 2 Chronicles,20:15,17. Be still,seek God in fasting and prayer,praise Him for the victory is already won. For the battle is not yours, but His!!!saith the Lord.

There were times in my life when I was so financially desperate, then God required me to do some radical action of faith that was contrary to my mind like give away what I needed which left me desperate and at God's mercy. He seems to like that because then He comes through in such a big way it blows your mind but you must first step out in faith. The bible even confirms this that God gets a real buzz in proving His glory to you in big ways, but acts of faith on your part are the key. Many can't do it.

James 1:2Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. 4Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.

Cristian;Let me tell you what a very old wise man once said to me "Son ,use all these trials & tribulations,as stepping stones to Perfection" I did & it worked for me.In one word TRUS.He is a very compassionate God.Patience is a mother of Virtue.

I know what you are going through with. It is hard to keep the faith and stand still. I do know that being impaitent with God doesn't help, it seems he makes us wait longer. I keep telling myself speak things as though they already are. But always remember God won't take you through something that he doesn't make a way out.

Tithe..it sounds like a crazy idea, but I have learned that it is the only way to make a dollar stretch. I tell God I will work and give the ten percent to him, and it is up to him to meet the bills. He has never failed me yet. Money is the only area he tells us to test him. I have never been evicted, had the utilities shut off, had a car repossessed or been without food or clothing, even when unemployed. God is faithful and keeps his promises..and you can take that to the bank, literally.
