Ahava Love Letter (#60) “Need Money?” - Steve Martin

                            
                      “Need Money?”

“As for those who do have riches in this present world, charge them
not to be proud and not to let their hopes rest on the uncertainties
of riches, but to rest their hopes on God, who richly provides us with
all things for our enjoyment. Charge them to do good, to be rich in
good deeds, to be generous and ready to share. In this way they will
treasure up for themselves a good foundation for the future, so that
they may lay hold of the real life.” (1 Tim 6:17-19)
Complete Jewish Bible


Dear family of friends,

Everybody needs money. You, me, the family of four struggling to make ends meet; the single Mom with two kids and two part time jobs; all the people in other countries.  We all need provision, yes? We need money, so it seems.

In every nation around the world, some form of currency exchange is the norm for trade and finance. Pounds (UK), dollars (USA & Canada), shekels (Israel), rubles (Russia), rupees (India), yuans (China)…and the list goes on.

In many languages "bread" means "money" and having money means you can buy bread. There must then be a reason that our Lord Jesus (Yeshua) instructed us to pray for our daily bread. Do you pray for your bread (money) daily?  If not, why not?

I know I don't always. I often forget to thank the Lord everyday for His constant provision. And I often fail to ask Him for my daily bread. I just assume it will happen.

When I wrote this statement on my Facebook page, “It's my responsibility to obey. It's His responsibility to provide”, the response people gave showed they could relate to it.  I think they “liked” because they want to trust. They want to believe that faith actions on their part bring rewards. They realize that the Lord, our Provider, blesses, as we obey Him.

Over the past three “lean” years, I learned to pray for our daily bread, and to give thanks for all His provision. When they past, I thought I didn’t have to be so concerned about those “little things” - like asking and thanking. I was wrong. I still do.

So the logical conclusion I have reached, which has been lodged deeper into my spirit: if I obey His Word to ask daily, and to give thanks in all things, He will respond with His daily provision. But on the other hand, if I mess up, which will happen, out of His everlasting love He will still provide. So I tend to think He will provide "more than enough" if I first obey daily. And you?

Keep asking daily for your bread. Keep giving thanks for that which He provided. A time will come when the economies of the world will cease to exist as we know it, so now it the time to learn this reality lesson.

Ahava (love in Hebrew) to my family of friends,

Steve Martin
