Living paycheck to paycheck is stressful. It strains relationships. Saving is a good idea, but having an overall strategy for future financial security is even better. More than changing your habits, you have to change your mindset. Markets change. The economy changes. Our own personal circumstances change. Here are three things you can do to gain peace of mind knowing you are prepared.
We can’t plan for everything in the future. There’s just too much uncertainty. That’s where faith comes in: doing everything we can to be prepared, then having faith in our Father in Heaven that things will work out. So in your preparations, don’t forget to pray about your plans. You may get impressions to modify those plans in ways that you won’t understand for years to come.
Lastly, remember the best insurance for the future is obedience today. Pay tithes and offerings always and the Lord will see that your needs are met.
