God or Money?

The righteous will see it and be amazed. They will laugh and say, “Look what happens to mighty warriors who do not trust in God. They trust their wealth instead and grow more and more bold in their wickedness.” Psalm 52: 6-7 NLT

Look what happens to the mighty who trust in their wealth rather than in God.

Do you trust God as much as you do your money? Could you give all you own away and trust God to provide? Do you find yourself praying at times for more money when you should be praying for more trust in God's own provision?

When we trust our money, credit ratings, savings account and retirement income more than God we can quickly become more bold in wickedness. When we trust God we rely on God and move away from wickedness.

God, help us to rely on you, not on the income we bring into our households. May our trust in you turn us away from doing that which is wrong. In Jesus' name. Amen.
