  7. Lord I Need Money

"Lord I Need Money"

I didn't know what I was going to do for money. Charles was a good man in every respect, but he had neglected the upkeep of our rental houses. All the houses, including ours, needed new roofs and a lot of other renovations.

I had been talking to the Lord about this, and the only thing I could think of was borrowing money on the house. I called about this on Thursday and talked to a woman in Nashville. She informed me that I might be able to get a small loan, but with my small income, there was no way I could borrow $30,000.

On the following Monday, I was sitting at the kitchen table having some cereal, and I just looked up to God and said, " Lord I need money." "I need lots of money!" Just then the phone rang. It was the lady that I had talked to on Thursday. She said, "we have reconsidered your loan request, and you can have the full amount."

The negative side of this was that it wasn't enough to do all that had to be done and I started getting into serious credit card debt for material, etc. I knew that God was my real supply. I was always confessing that he supplied my needs according to his riches in Glory. (Phil 4:19)

Just out of the blue I qualified for a government settlement. That money certainly helped, but I prayed and told the Lord again, "Lord I need money." "I need lots of money!"

Again there came another large sum of money, totally expected, and more than before This got me out of credit card debt. He redeemed my life from destruction (Psa 103:4) because I was at a point that It was getting harder and harder to pay the high payments.

I am getting closer to completing most of the renovations of the rental property, and I can see, by faith, prosperity ahead. "I know the thoughts I have of you, to do you good and not evil all the days of your life, saith the Lord."

It has been ten years now that I have been widowed. With the Lord's help, and of course with the love and support of my children, I have put in two complete new kitchens, replaced four roofs. I have also installed new sewer lines in three of the houses, replaced interior doors throughout; also exterior doors, porches, and lots more to improve and upkeep the property. God is good!

The Lord is not through with me yet. I expect to be healed and to glorify him through my healing, and I receive. I refuse to doubt and do without because I am a Believer.

Hello Ruth,
It is very uplifting and encouraging to read your blog; I am a born-again Christian, I love and adore the lord so much, and I am trying to put him first in everything that I do despite my shortcomings. I too am looking for a home for my parents and my family, and I am praying and believing in Almighty God that He will provide for me.

I loved it when you wrote that God said command Ye Me, It is beautiful to know that God is willing and ready to meet all our needs. Thank you very much, this has really been encouraging. Personally, I am struggling with my finances, my husband after a very long time has just got a job, and we are praying that it will be fruitful. But the interesting thing is that through all this, we have never lacked food in our house, God takes care of everything, even the so many bills, He always pays them.Thank you once again, and God bless you.

Hi Ruth, I just wanted to thank you for your testimony. I'm believing and trusting God that he will supply my needs according to his riches in glory. I am truly up against the wall and have been waiting on God, and things are really tough. My hours at work have been cut down to four hours a week, and I am working on business not brought me profit yet, but I see you the long-term advantage of it. And desperately looking for other work. Try to sell things in my home in which I have nice antique pieces, but nothing has sold yet. I am a month behind on my rent and the second month is due in two weeks, and I have to pay it. I just saw this, and I'm just writing a comment has it helps me to feel better. I know that God is no respecter of a person and what he does for his children he will do for another. Ruth is a powerful name in the Bible, and that's my middle name so something in common. God bless you

"Lets Teach Our Children to Love"

Why is it so difficult for our educators and society, in general, to understand that love and respect for one another taught from a young age can solve much of the world's hostility and social problems!

"Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it" (Prov 22:6).

Love is the answer!

Loyalty and Faithfulness

True loyalty springs from the heart and is wrapped in love. It is often in our most private moments that true loyalty, or the lack of it, is made known.
