St. Joseph – Banking on God as Your Provider

Dear one, are you being swept away in the currents of an ever-changing world? Let us never forget that it is essential to anchor ourselves to a steadfast source of security and provision. It is easy to find oneself adrift in the tumult of daily responsibilities and worries about tomorrow.

As a humble carpenter who shouldered the great responsibility of caring for the Holy Family, St. Joseph has come this day to guide you closer to the endless provision that flows from the Lord.

Riches That Do Not Fade

When you think of providence and abundance, people often find their minds picturing hoards of money, a robust vault filled with currency, or tangible assets that promise security and comfort.

Today’s message is a call to become the person who relies not on the coin, but the providence of God. I invite you to consider a different kind of wealth that you must accumulate – one where faith and trust are your greatest assets.

Scripture remind us, “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal” (Matthew 6:19-20).

Banking in God as your provider means recognizing that the true assets lie not in material abundance but in the richness of a life lived in harmony with His will.

Nurture Your Spiritual Portfolio

In my earthly life, I experienced firsthand the uncertainty of tomorrow. Yet, I learned that the safest investment is one placed in the hands of God. Our Lord’s providence is a fortress—impenetrable and unyielding. Just as I trusted Him to guide and provide for Mary and Jesus, so too can you rest in the assurance that He holds your needs and concerns with a tender, omnipotent hand.

It is akin to wisely managing your portfolio of assets. Your spiritual life requires attention, commitment, and sometimes, the courage to trust in divine timing over immediate gratification.

By placing regular “deposits of faith” like steadfast prayer and devotion to enrich your spiritual reserves, each moment spent in His presence strengthens your trust and deepens your faith, creating a wellspring of peace that sustains you through times of scarcity and abundance alike.

Receiving your eternal dividends

“Seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well” (Matthew 6:33).

This promise from the Lord is a divine guarantee of the returns on your spiritual investments. By prioritizing God’s will, you secure a future filled with the wealth of His grace and blessings.

I encourage you to view your life through the lens of divine provision. Just as a responsible banker invests with wisdom and foresight, so too should you invest your heart and your hopes in the promises of God. Embrace the spiritual wealth of a life in Christ, and know that in His hands, your needs, your futures, and your dreams are secure.

In every moment of need, remember the words of Philippians 4:19, “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” With such a promise, who can doubt the security of banking on God as your Provider?

Let us, therefore, move forward with hearts full of hope and pockets rich with faith, for in His divine economy, none are left wanting and all are abundantly provided for. Amen 🙏
