God is your ultimate provider.

“And my God will liberally supply (fill until full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus” Philippians 4:19, Amplified.

Nothing puts a strain on a marriage like financial stress. My husband and I had reached a point when I was about to head for the hills. The landlord was threatening eviction, the refrigerator was empty, the water was cut off and our car was broke down. That’s enough to make any woman want to leave. Everything in me wanted to say, “I can do bad all by myself!” But thank God even in my emotions, the Holy Spirit reminded me that God is my ultimate provider, not my husband or anyone else. He is the source of everything I need. And once that truth settled deep in my heart, I was able to stop feeling so angry at my husband and our situation, and was able to focus on letting God help us get through it.

God will meet your needs even when your husband is unable to. He may be sick and unable to work, or he may have been laid off, or is in between jobs, or you may be a single mother and having to work and take care of the home all by yourself. Whatever the case may be, know that the Lord will provide for you and your family. He will bless you with supernatural provision and will see you through every trial.

There’s no need for you to go around slamming doors, throwing dishes and throwing a tantrum because your husband isn’t providing. Turn all of your attention and focus on the Lord and say with all your heart, “God, I put my trust in You right now to take care of me. I am Your daughter and You are my King. You are my ultimate provider and my source. I place all of my expectations on You. I ask that You fill every lacking place in my home and every lacking place in me. Strengthen me God. Encourage my husband deeply and help us to know with confidence that everything will be alright no matter what happens, because You are our God and You are our provider. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

  1. I really needed this message today. Praise God. I am going through this exact situation. I had a dream that my husband told me he quit his job and I asked for a divorce. I read this devotional this morning and I received a call from my husband say he walked off his job the day before. I thank God I read this before I spoke to him, it was what I needed to hear. It has been rough these past few years with his employment, and I understand why he did what he did. But God, he is my provider. My husband went to the grocery store today and saw an old friend who offered him a job paying more money. GOD I thank you for your mercy and grace. I thank you for being our provider.
