What you will learn in this course
Let’s be honest: while we may say “God is Provider” on Sunday, we tend to live the rest of the week like He isn’t.
We don’t want to admit it, but too often we believe the lie that “God won’t provide.” Instead of faith, we are guided by financial fear, take matters into our own hands, or develop an unhealthy pursuit of wealth. Yet if Scripture is true, we have to acknowledge this foundational reality:
We don’t need money; we need God.
In this course we wrestle with what it means for “God to be Provider”, why we struggle to accept a reality that is actually good news, and what we can do to begin to trust Him. This will not be a step-by-step guide, but instead will challenge your perspectives and equip you to discern simple steps forward towards “seeking first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness,” even when you don’t know how the bills will get paid.
Each lesson begins with a chapter of “God won’t provide: The lie we don’t believe we are believing”, and then takes the theme further with scripture, prayer, and processing
I believe this message is urgent, not just for you individually, but for the Body of Christ, for “the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil.” (1 Timothy 6:10) Our love of money — whether greed or financial fear — is causing us to miss the Provider in our midst, misrepresent Him to a watching world, and misuse the gift of life He has given us.
Are you bold enough to confront the lie and discover the God who will provide?
Note: This course was originally created for a YWAM Burundi DTS, and comments are made addressing that group; however, the content is relevant to anyone.
Before you begin, take time to pray; you can pray something like this:
Father God, help me to confront my misconceptions of provision and you as Provider.
