‘The Word became flesh.’ John 1:14 NIV
Jesus came into the world for two reasons. First, to give you the greatest gift of all—eternal life. Second, to let you know He cares about every detail of your life. ‘The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.’ (John 1:14 NKJV) JB Phillips put it this way: ‘The Word of God became a human being and lived among us. We saw His splendour (…as of a father’s only son), full of grace and truth.’
Roughly 20 per cent of everything Jesus taught had to do with your finances, your job, or your earthly needs. He cares! And when you can’t make ends meet, the Bible says, ‘God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory.’ (Philippians 4:19 NKJV) When your business is going under, His promise is: ‘I am the Lord your God, who teaches you to profit.’ (Isaiah 48:17 NKJV)
God cares about the burden you’re carrying today, so if your needs aren’t being met, re-evaluate your understanding of your heavenly Father. Have you even discussed your finances with Him? How about the purchase of your home? Did you feel the inner confirmation of the Holy Spirit that the timing was right? Have you been sowing into God’s Kingdom in the field He’s shown you, watering that seed and expecting Him to give the increase? Seed sown in good ground always produces a harvest, and faith is the magnet that pulls the harvest into your life. The word for you today is—God loves you and wants to bless every area of your life.
