I had a real "aha" moment yesterday morning....
For years I have heard as I'm sure alot of people have heard the scripture;
Phil 4:19" And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus".
and for me that came with a sense that I should never do without!!!
Well I believe now that....Yes He does and will supply all my needs, but what I do with what He has supplied.... that's my choice.
If He supplies a sunny day for hanging my clothes on the line, and I chose to visit friends instead, that was my fault.
If He supplies the means for financial increase and I blow it off, that was my choice again.
If He supplies the job that pays the bills and I go on a trip instead.....again, that's my fault.
He gave me the supplies, I just chose to misuse them....
