But as for me, I am poor and needy; may the Lord think of me. You are my help and my deliverer; you are my God, do not delay. Psalm 40:17
David knew what it was like to need. His emptiness could only be filled with the Lord. David was keenly aware that his emptiness created the space for God. In other words, poverty allows God's presence in us.
“Blessed are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:3
A poor spirit is a great place to find the help we need. Poverty is admitting apart from the Lord we can do nothing. It is finding who we are in what God is saying and goes beyond finding ourselves in what we do. It is losing ourselves in God based on what He is doing.
Poverty is the recognition God is our source of strength and help.
”I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Phil. 4:13
The richness of God's supply moves me to action. Because the motive is for God's glory and not self-assurance, we find all the confidence we could ever need in this power
