The world in which we live seems to be the enemy of those who are not affluent. Just think about it. Jobs that can provide financial resources are scare. Educational opportunities that can qualify people for these jobs are increasingly less affordable. Even the gas needed to drive to work or school is expensive. These realities make it easy to be discouraged if you’re not affluent.
Just because the world seems opposed to those who are not affluent does not mean God is. In Psalm 9, David reminds us that God is very aware of the plight of the less fortunate. Better, he assures us that God will eventually turn things around for them as well: “… the hope of the poor will not always be crushed” (Psalm 9:18, NLT).
If you fee like you don’t have all of the resources necessary to do all you need to, be encouraged! You are not forgotten – God is aware of your needs. It’s simply a matter of time before He opens windows in heave and gives you a blessing you cannot handle!
Thought to Consider:
And this same God who takes care of me will supply all of your needs from his glorious riches, which have been given to us in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:18, NLT).
