We’ve Learned How to Live Within Our Means

Malachi 3:6,10,11:
For I am the Lord, I change not….
Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground; neither shall your vine cast her fruit before the time in the field, saith the Lord of hosts.

These verses, along with Ephesians 3:20 and Philippians 4:6 and 7, helped my husband and me get out of debt and stay out. We first took the Power for Abundant Living (PFAL) class in 1975. We had been married for two years when we found ourselves in deep debt. We were witnessed to and started going to fellowship. From that time until this day, we have tithed to The Way Ministry, and for over forty-three years we’ve learned how to live within our means by budgeting, praying, and knowing that God is good ALWAYS.

Recently we retired and moved to a new state. Our son had wanted us to move closer to him. We were not sure we could afford it, but during the two years we’ve been here, God has blessed us abundantly. So, we thought, OK. We looked at the apartments within five blocks of him and his family and decided what we wanted—a specific apartment, which is on the ground floor, and we wanted to move on a specific date. We kept checking the Internet, waiting for the apartment to be available. Then we went to fellowship later that week and prayed for the apartment and the time we wanted it. The next Sunday, we checked the Internet, and there was our apartment. Needless to say, God took care of our need and want, and we moved in by that specific date.

We are so very thankful for everyone that serves at The Way International Headquarters and for the Word of God we have learned in the classes we have taken. God has met all our needs.
