We Christians hypocritically talk out of both sides of our mouth. We love to quote Philippians 4:19 and many other similar verses, then in the next breath say that even though we know what God’s Word tells us about His promises and how we are to raise our children, we just can’t afford to have very many (if any) children, nor can we afford for the wife to stay home and raise the children because it’s too costly. We say that in this day and time it’s too expensive to live (the way we are told we must live–the American dream) and we just cannot make it on one income.
Have you ever considered that in addition to other Christians hearing our faithless declarations, the unsaved also hear what we say and watch what we do? Christians are to be separate from the world, noticeably different, following God’s commands and not the world’s excuses! It takes faith and courage to step out and obey what God has commanded. If Christians make excuses and refuse to step out and obey God’s Word in faith do we really believe in the Supreme God that we say we do?
And my God will supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.
