Everything We Need
Wednesday, March 4th – Deuteronomy 8:18 (NIV)


“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.”                                                                                                                                                                                                                        


God tells us to remember Him. In a world filled with distractions it can be easy to become mindful of things that are not about God and His promises. One of the most common and stressful worries are financial. Bills, debt, taxation and living expenses are a regular part of life and it seems as if they constantly change. One thing though that does not change is God’s promise. In the above verse he asks us to keep in mind that He is the one who gives us the ability to produce wealth, and that promise remains today so His promise to mankind can be confirmed in this world. Consider the idea that we are created in God’s image and He has given us the ability to create, innovate, imagine, produce, and build. There is literally nothing we cannot accomplish when God is our creator and provider. Let’s keep that in mind!


Father we thank you for your promises! We pray that you would use us in a manner that would glorify you. Help us to live up to our potential in You, and remove anything in our lives that would encumber your will for us. Help us Lord to remember you and your loving nature and your promises. Empower us as a church Lord to create wealth so that your covenant can be confirmed in our communities and beyond. Thank you God in Jesus name,
