Yesterday Pastor Mike spoke about how God wants us to use His resources. I've been really thinking about #3 My Hope Is In God. The scripture he used yesterday was 1 Timothy 6:17
“Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.”
That scripture tells us that we have to put our hope in God, who richly provides us with everything.... I won't even finish this scripture. I'll just stop with "who richly provides us with everything." How many times do we get frustrated because we can't figure it out on our own? We figure that since God isn't moving fast enough we will pick it up and do it ourselves. And guess what? It still doesn't get done or it is not done in the manner of excellence in which our Father would have done it. It's at this point that we have to put our hope in God to provide us with the finances, with the employment opportunities, or with the answers to the questions that we so richly desire.
Hebrews 11:1 tells us
