Living by faith is not the domain of only those Christians called to "full-time" ministry. Every Christian can enter into the adventure. What is important is not our vocation, but whether we are committed to obeying God's will in our lives. If you are willing to step out in faith and trust in God, doing whatever it is He has asked you to do, then you will see His provision...more

As always, Loren Cunningham's book is timely, relevant and challenging. With his typical combination of practical tips and real-life illustrations, this veteran missionary tells both the career minister and working man/woman how to trust God with every aspect of his/her finances and live a life of faith.

Giving is not just for the well-to-do, or those with "secular" jobs; it's also commanded for those whose support comes from donors. Conversely, just because you receive a regular paycheck doesn'...more
An exceptional and practical spiritual guidance book to help with people trusting in God with their finances and needs. Loren Cunningham gives readers great insight just how far trusting in God can really go for all our provisions. The book has many great examples of when situations are testing people and when turning to the Lord can make the ultimate difference.

Recommended to Kimberly by: Don Riling
This book was recommended to me by my pastor when I was working full time in Christian ministry, and when my income came from people who supported me financially through the organization I was working for. So I found this book to be quite helpful and encouraging, especially when I was struggling with my financial support.

A well-written book about God's miraculous provision in times of trial and testing. Cunningham cites example after example of how God responds in faith to those who trust him, even when logic says otherwise. No one in Cunningham's movement, Youth With a Mission, draws a salary, including Cunningham himself. All must rely on the generosity of others. Cunningham shows how trusting in God can be liberating.

Recommended to Regina by: Sonlight Curriculum
This is a Sonlight Curriculum recommendation that my kids have read. It's directed at missionaries who have to wait on God for their support, but it has a lot to say to us "civilians" about trusting God daily with our money and our lives. I'm keeping this one for future reference!

One of my favourite books! A must-read for anyone who wants to learn to live by faith and trust God for finances. I have read it a few times and each time, I still get inspired by this book.
This book was full of encouraging and challenging stories of God's provision. Reading it will encourage you to trust God more with your finances.
