1 Corinthians 2:5 that your faith should not be in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.

You need to come up with $20,000 in a week. It seems like you need a miracle. Human wisdom says, get a loan, ask family members, or work as much overtime as you can. However, the Word of God tells us to depend on the power of God.

Now, depending on God doesn’t mean we sit at home and wait on someone to knock on our door with a $20,000 check. That means we believe that miracle has already been made available through Jesus Christ, seek God, and wait on His solution for that miracle. He may have us talk to a specific person about our situation. That person may be prompted by the Holy Spirit to write us a check. He may have us go to a specific bank that will lend us the money. A relative, who recently passed, could have left us some money in their will. The point is, it’s God’s solution and not our own. He will guide us to the location of our answer. To hear His voice, we need to quiet ourselves and quiet our surroundings.

In every situation and for every solution, great or small, depend on the power of God.
