OBEDIENCE IN FINANCES
There are more people with money issues than not. Even those who appear to have a great deal of money could possibly have a great deal of debt. We don’t know what money issues others have or why they have them but we can learn from our own mistakes and work on our financial woes. God has a plan for us about how we spend our money and we should be obedient to Him with our finances in all things.
Luke 16:11 “And if you are untrustworthy about worldly wealth, who will trust you with the true riches of heaven?”
Dear Lord, we want to be trustworthy servants for You with our finances. We know we make bad decisions. We know we look for earthly pleasures. We know we spend more than we have which leads us into debt. Show us today the right path to go and help us to make the right decisions with our money so we can be trustworthy financial servants obeying what You command us to do with our finances. In Jesus name. Amen.
God has a plan for how we spend our money. We need to obey it. All we have is from Him anyway.
When we go to God asking Him what we should do with our money, He will give us His answer.
There are many verses in the Bible about money. Let’s begin researching them today and obeying God with what He has given us.
Spending and borrowing money for unnecessary reasons will bring unquestionable results.
When we are obedient to God with our finances, we may not see our financial troubles subside right away, but we can have peace in the midst of financial struggles and know that God is in control.
Giving is part of God’s financial plan for us.
2 Corinthians 9:7 “You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. ‘For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.’” (NLT)
