Hebrews 13:5, 6 – NIV
Keep your lives free from the love of money and be content with what you have, because God has said,
“Never will I leave you;
never will I forsake you.”
So we say with confidence,
“The Lord is my helper; I will not be afraid. What can mere mortals do to me?” Hebrews 13:5, 6 – NIV
How can anyone live in the world today and not worry about their finances? Some Christians struggle to live on a fixed income or small pension in retirement. Others find that wealth that has been accumulated or inherited only leads to bigger problems with family and friends.
Many hardworking and well-intentioned believers find themselves ensnared in a pit of debt after a business failure or the loss of what once seemed to be a secure job. Medical bills and student debt affect millions. And who, like the Psalmist Asaph, in Psalm 73:3, has not envied the health and prosperity of wicked people, who seem to be only rewarded for their evil deeds instead of receiving God’s just punishment?
Yet the author of Hebrews reminded the impoverished and persecuted believers under his care that the promises of God cannot be changed or canceled. Jesus’ Heavenly Father will never leave us nor abandon us. Those who live under the assistance and protection of the Creator of the universe need not be intimidated or fear the human enemies of the Son of God.
