All of us will face financial concerns at one time or another. Earlier in our marriage, when Steve was a carpenter, sometimes he couldn’t find work for months on end due to the rainy season. I can remember standing at the kitchen sink, praying, “Lord, this is Your house. We will use it for ministry, but You need to make the payment on Your house!”
It was during one of those hard times a Titus 2 woman mentor reminded me of Jesus’ advice to His followers: “Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33).
But what if it seems as though God hasn’t provided for your house payment? What if all you work for is lost? Did God not come through––or is it possible He has a better plan? Read what God says in Isaiah 55:8-9: “For My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways and My thoughts than your thoughts” (nasb).
