One of the hardest things for me to do as a Christian is to let go of my need to be in control. Our family’s finances have always been a specific struggle for me. Before we decided to give our finances over to God, I would sit and stress about how far the next paycheck was going to get us. We were always very good about budgeting monthly, but we were not great at budgeting for the unknown.
When we first began to give to our church, I could not wrap my head around how we would be able to function. However, since we put our faith in God and not my constant worrying, he has provided more than enough every month.
Proverbs 3:9-10 reads “Honor the Lord with your possessions, and with the first fruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, And your vats will overflow with new wine.” The bible teaches us over and over that we are first supposed to take care of God’s people and missions and then ourselves. In doing this we will reap the rewards.
As we ask for a financial breakthrough today it is important to remember God’s will first. Try to listen for what he wants you to do, or which direction he wants you to travel in. Your breakthrough may not look the way you have envisioned it, but that does not mean God has not shown up for you.
He’s there with you at work even when you’re dealing with an unfair boss and He’s with you when you’re dealing with unexpected expenses in your home. It’s important to not forget that. If you have any specific financial breakthrough prayer request, please leave them in the comments below.

Financial breakthroughs from God always come at the right time. I know it is hard to be patient. I know it will feel like you have just stopped trying to succeed, but sometimes you have to stop putting so much pressure on yourself for God’s work to happen and have faith in a better tomorrow.
Have faith in our Lord. Philippians 4:19 reads “And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”. Our Lord has provided for me and I know that he will also provide for you. We just have to open our eyes and hearts to see and feel what his provisions actually look like.
I also wanted to let you know that there are many people out there who have been given the gift of giving. Sometimes it takes asking your pastor for assistance to be put in the right direction. These gifts may only come one time, but it is important to remember that God can provide for you in many ways.
I also want to encourage all of us to not take God’s gifts for granted. When you are blessed by those around you, it is important to also thank God for what has been given. If you have any specific financial breakthrough prayer requests, please leave them in the comments below.
