    One of our biggest worries tends to be about our ability to provide for our needs. But it shouldn’t be!

    If I gave you a check today for a thousand dollars, would you withhold your thanks until you knew it wouldn’t bounce? Anyone who knows me would think, “This is a pretty good guy. I’m sure he has enough in his account to cover it. I’ll thank him right now.” You’d thank me before you received the cash — and then you would take the check to the bank.

  • Giving and Faith Go Together

    Giving and faith go together. In fact, God uses finances to test your faith all the time. Have you ever had to decide between paying a bill and tithing? This is a test of your priorities. It’s a test of your love. But most importantly, it’s a test of your faith. Do you really trust God to provide for you if you put him first in your life?

  • Thank God for Who He Is, Not Just What He Does

    Anytime you thank someone, you honor that person. For example, if I say to my wife, “Honey, I’m so grateful for that great Thanksgiving dinner you made,” I just honored my wife. When I say to her mom, “I want to thank you for having Kay so I could marry her,” I am honoring her mom. When I say to someone, “Thank you for opening the door for me” or “Thank you for coming to the service,” I am honoring that person. An expression of gratitude is a way of honoring another person.

    When we want God to answer our prayers, we must be willing to not only let God answer whenever he thinks is best but also however he thinks is best. God’s ways are always better and bigger and higher.

  • How to Pray When Your Answer Is Delayed

    God’s timing is perfect. We may think he’s late, but he’s never late. God’s delays are not God’s denials. “Not yet” does not mean “no.”

  • Why God Sometimes Delays Your Answers to Prayer

    I heard a story once about a young girl who wrote a letter to a missionary, trying to encourage him and lend her support. Evidently, she’d been told not to request a response to her letter because the missionaries were very busy. So when the letter arrived, the missionary got a kick out of reading, “Dear Mr. Missionary, we are praying for you. But we are not expecting an answer.”

    When God gives an idea — a rhema — he gives it in three parts. First, he says what he’s going to do, then he says how he’s going to do it, and then he gives you the timing.

    I remember growing up with some old math books that had the answers at the end of the book. I could work out the equation, figure out the answer, and then go and check it in the back. Or not! What I actually did was go find the answer and then, knowing where I was supposed to end up, try to figure out how to do the equation.

  • God Can Use Our Spirit-Controlled Desires to Direct Us

    When we want God’s direction for our lives, we should get our desires out of the way so that we can honestly say, “God, I’m willing to go either way — whatever you want is what I want.”
