I received a credit card months ago. I thought it would be great to have in case I had an emergency. But, slowly I found myself using it for things that I used to trust God for, including emotional spending. I found security in a unsecure credit card. Not only was it a set up to keep me in debt, but it made me secure in the wrong things. This caused me not to trust God with every area of my life. I found myself avoiding prayer about the situation because I did not want to hear God tell me to stop or to cut up the card.
This past weekend I had to be honest with God and myself. I was not mature enough to handle the credit card (OUCH!) I thought I had the spending under control. I had to be honest and search where I really was with God. Soon as I repented for not trusting him completely, he turned around today and gave me what I did not deserve. He used someone to take my family to the store to get everything we needed and I mean EVERYTHING! It was a OVER FLOW!! I miss this place with him. The great thing about his blessings is that I don’t have to pay them back with interest! He’s God like that!!! He is always waiting to pick us back up. I pray that you allow God in those secret places. Be honest about where you are…He is willing and able to bring you out! Just trust him.
Verse of Meditation: Proverbs 28:13 (GNT)
You will never succeed in life if you try to hide your sins. Confess them and give them up; then God will show mercy to you.
