Does God Protect Us From Financial Hardship?
While God does not promise to protect us from financial hardship, He does promise to provide for our needs and to be with us during difficult times.
In the Bible, Jesus teaches us not to worry about our material needs, but to trust in God’s provision:
“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:31-33).
God also encourages us to be good stewards of our finances, to work hard, and to be generous with what we have.
Proverbs 21:5 says, “The plans of the diligent lead surely to abundance, but everyone who is hasty comes only to poverty.”
And 2 Corinthians 9:6-8 says, “Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.”
In summary, while God does not promise to protect us from financial hardship, He does promise to provide for our needs and to be with us during difficult times. We can trust in His provision, work hard, be good stewards of our finances, and be generous with what we have.
