Question If it's God's Will, it's God's Bill

What are your thoughts on, "God's Will, God's Bill"?

quick example: God tells you that He wants you to go on a missions trip. If it is God's will, then it is God's bill and He will take care of the monetary issues.

personal example: I truly feel like God is calling me to go to a christian college. It is by His grace only that I have found and been accepted to this college. So now I am asking what others believe about God's provision for these types of issues. I truly do not have the money to go the college and I am also unable to get financial aid from the state. So either God or loans are going to have to pay for college.

God could make it happen or God could make you make it happen. God does all kinds of things in different kinds of ways. if you are only wanting YHVH then you are good no matter what way things happen. just cling to God. bills do not matter. knowledge does not matter. nothing matters but God.

I dunno if there is some kind of grant that you can get? try that too maybe? just do everything you can and seek God and if it is his will then everything will work out. honestly if it is his will and you find out you have to get a job then that is what you will have to do.

i believe if someone just thinks "God's Will, God's Bill" is the only way God does things, then that someone is quenching the Spirit. but yeah God does pay the bills, we can't really do anything good without Him.

While I believe that God provides for us financially sometimes (and I have experienced that in my own life) I also think that he provided us with a brain and common sense (no offence intended lol.) I'd start by applying for a bunch of scholarships, possibly specifically Christian scholarships.

No worries! I am! I'm just looking for your thoughts on the subject, and possibly some encouraging stories?

I would cite Acts 18:6 where Paul made tents in Cornith to support himself, and Paul's command in 2 Thessalonians 3:10 that he who won't work, can't eat.

So, in other words, get a job.

God's provision includes the ability to work a job.

It is not cherries falling off a tree.

I feel as if what I posted is being read as if I expect to receive random checks in the mail or money on the ground that will pay my entire tuition. I understand that I should (and I currently am) apply for scholarships and get a job. But have any of you encountered a time when God has asked you to do something that regardless of your own efforts you wouldn't be able afford the monetary costs? Has God truly worked miracles in your life that way? Because that is how I feel at the moment, that even if I work I may not be able to afford college. Now maybe I will have to take out loans (as much as I would hate to) and maybe that is the only way that I will be able to go. And I understand that, but has God worked financial miracles in your life?

1. Determine if God is "calling".

Knowing that is crucial in order to stand on the decision and not quit when it gets rough.

That means that you must have the Holy Spirit bearing witness with your spirit.

Rom 8:16
The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: KJV

Are you born again? Do you know that you are a child of God?

If the answer is yes then you have experienced the witness of the Holy Spirit.

He bears witness with our spirit on any issue of Life that we ASK Him for guidance.

Look for the witness.

The Holy Spirits means of communication with us is through our spirit.

There is a lot more to it than I can cover in this, but look for the witness.

He leads us by the witness.

He does not lead us by feelings, emotions, opinions, money, cost, circumstances, reasons, etc.

He does not bear witness with our feelings, emotions, opinions, money, cost, circumstances, reasons, etc.

He bears witness with our spirit.

Once you determine that God is "calling" then your actions must be according to your faith.

Not what you have heard He might do, or what He might have done for others.

What is your faith level capable of believing?
