Acts 24:25-27 (KJV) What If Our Need Isn’t Met?

Acts 24:25-27 (KJV)
And as he reasoned of righteousness, temperance, and judgment to come, Felix trembled, and answered, Go thy way for this time; when I have a convenient season, I will call for thee.He hoped also that money should have been given him of Paul, that he might loose him: wherefore he sent for him the oftener, and communed with him.But after two years Porcius Festus came into Felix’ room: and Felix, willing to shew the Jews a pleasure, left Paul bound.
God owns the wealth in every mine. Money is no problem for God. I have personally witnessed God providing again and again in unexpected, and abundant ways.
That said, God doesn’t always give us money.
Felix, the Bible says, would have released Paul for the right amount of money.
  • He did not believe the accusations made against him. 
  • He was moved (though not to conversion) by his message and 
  • He had the authority to release him. 
All he lacked was money. Whether it was a bribe, a fine or a bond, it did not happen. For two years Paul stayed, at liberty to have visitors and preach the Word but still a prisoner. The money never came.
It isn’t always the plan of God to give us the money. I have witnessed God do some of the most amazing things, providing us money and materials by the tens of thousands of dollars, but I have also asked for things that haven’t come.
Paul never grew bitter with God. He never softened his message. He never backed away and grew quite because God didn’t give him what he wanted.  Paul lived for God regardless:
  • Wholeheartedly, 
  • Passionately 
  • Conviction, 
  • Joy and confident 
  • Faith
We ought to do the same.
