The Bible teaches that God is the source of our finances. He is the one who provides for our needs.
Deuteronomy 8:18 says, “But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today” (NIV).
So what does that mean for your everyday life? It means that instead of looking to your employer for financial security, you look to God. It means that instead of looking to your savings account for financial security, you look to God. It means that you don’t look to anyone or anything other than God to provide for your needs.
Let me illustrate it this way: When you turn on the water, you know the water doesn’t actually come from the faucet. The water comes through the faucet. The water actually comes from a reservoir or a well, and the way you happen to receive it is through the faucet.
In the same way, the income that God wants to give you may come through a job or through something or someone else.
But the source is always God.
You don’t need to worry about which faucet God uses to supply your needs. In a sense he says, “If I turn off one faucet, I can just as easily turn on another. If you lose one job, I can give you another. Your job isn’t your source. Your bank account isn’t your source. I am your source.”
Worry reveals the places where we aren’t trusting God. Ask God to help you understand what causes you not to trust him, and then ask him to teach you to start trusting him. Look for how he does that.
And when you start to worry, talk to God about your concerns.
