God Hears Her

Everything Comes from God

lord our God, all this abundance that we have provided for building you a temple for your Holy Name comes from your hand, and all of it belongs to you.

1 Chronicles 29:16

Today’s Reading: 1 Chronicles 29:14–19

By the time I was eighteen, I had worked and saved until I had enough money for a year of school. Then my mom had emergency surgery, and I realized I had the money in the bank to pay for her operation.

My love for my mother suddenly took precedence over my plans. These words from Passion and Purity by Elisabeth Elliot took on new meaning: “If we hold tightly to anything given to us, unwilling to let it go when the time comes to let it go . . . , we stunt the growth of the soul.” She was saying that what we have “is ours to thank Him for and ours to offer back to Him.”

I saw my savings as gift from God! I could give to my family because I was sure God could get me through school another way, and He did.

Today, think about David’s prayer from 1 Chronicles 29:14, “Everything we have has come from you, and we give you only what you first gave us” (nlt).


We hope you are enjoying the God Hears Her reading plan! Keep connecting with God each day with the 365-day version of God Hears Her.
