No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. –Matthew 6:24 (New International Version)
What do you put your faith in? Is it your assets? Your work? Your pension? Your business? In other words, what is it that gives you security and peace of mind in life? You see, God wants you to have big faith but he wants you to have it in Him. There is NOTHING in this world that will satisfy the soul than a SAVING relationship with Jesus Christ.
In fact, what broke man’s relationship with God in the beginning was man’s refusal to trust God. You recall in the Garden of Eden our fore-parents Adam and Eve lived in perfect bliss of security, intimacy and love with God. God gave them everything that they could have asked for and didn’t ask for. It was all good. Then because of the subtle, wicked and cunning suggestion of Satan, man began to doubt God and greed set in their hearts for more than what they were given. But thank God for who He is because ever since then God has been wooing men and women back into a faith-based relationship with Him.
Resolve to be devoted to God as opposed to your circumstances and/or finances. Truth is, the things you are most DEVOTED to are the things you will worry about the most. One of the marks of the Christian is his/her interest in wanting to please God out of a love for Him. Their thoughts revolve around wanting to serve Him, worship, honor and come to know Him better. They can say out of a paramount faith in their creator with a firm confidence like the Psalmist David, “The Lord will work out his plans for my life—for your faithful love, O Lord, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for you made me.” – Psalm 138:8
