Loss of Home or Job
Psalm 27:4-5
One thing I ask of the LORD,
this is what I seek:
that I may dwell in the house of the LORD
all the days of my life,
to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD
and to seek him in his temple.
For in the day of trouble
he will keep me safe in his dwelling;
he will hide me in the shelter of his tabernacle
and set me high upon a rock. (NIV)

Psalm 46:1
God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. (NIV)

Psalm 84:2-4
My soul yearns, even faints,
for the courts of the LORD;
my heart and my flesh cry out
for the living God.
Even the sparrow has found a home,
and the swallow a nest for herself,
where she may have her young—
a place near your altar,
O LORD Almighty, my King and my God.
Blessed are those who dwell in your house;
they are ever praising you.
Selah (NIV)

Psalm 34:7-9
The angel of the LORD encamps around those who fear him,
and he delivers them.
Taste and see that the LORD is good;
blessed is the man who takes refuge in him.
Fear the LORD, you his saints,
for those who fear him lack nothing. (NIV)

Philippians 4:19
And this same God who takes care of me will supply all your needs from his glorious riches,
which have been given to us in Christ Jesus. (NLT)

Overcoming Financial Worries

Luke 12:22-34
Then Jesus said to his disciples: "Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will
eat; or about your body, what you will wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than
clothes. Consider the ravens: They do not sow or reap, they have no storeroom or barn; yet God
feeds them. And how much more valuable you are than birds! Who of you by worrying can add a
single hour to his life? Since you cannot do this very little thing, why do you worry about the rest?

"Consider how the lilies grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you, not even Solomon in all
his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which
is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you, O you of
little faith! And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the
pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek his
kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well.

"Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has been pleased to give you the kingdom. Sell your
possessions and give to the poor. Provide purses for yourselves that will not wear out, a treasure
in heaven that will not be exhausted, where no thief comes near and no moth destroys. For
where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (NIV)
