Finances – Week 2
No one likes to talk much about money. In fact it is downright offensive to some. Yet while faith is the currency of heaven, money is the currency on earth with which we live and eat. Why do we have such a problem believing that our Heavenly Father, in all His wisdom and understanding, wouldn’t want to provide for us materially as much as has spiritually? We’ve got to get that part correct.
God is the Father from whom all fatherhood takes its name, we’re told in Ephesians 3:15. We need to keep things very simple, and consider how much we long to provide for our own children. We have great dreams of being able to see that they’re educated well, cared for, protected, and wonderfully nourished with good food. It breaks our heart if we’re unable to do so for them, if we’re honest. Understand it deeply; God is not bankrupt in any area. He will not see we’re blessed in one area, without making a way for us to be cared for in the other areas. We must learn His wisdom in the area of finances, as money doesn’t fall on us like ripe cherries off a tree, but it’s there to be found. It has to be, because my God is a good Father.
Father help me start off by seeing you correctly. You’re the Giver of every good gift. You withhold no good thing from those who walk uprightly before You. You delight in giving good gifts toYour children. You’ve said so in Your word. Therefore I refuse to bow down to the beggarly elements of the world. I choose to believe that you want me just as healed in my finances, as you do in my physical body. Thank You for imparting to me wisdom today in the area of finances. I lift my voice for understanding in this area, and in Jesus’ Name, I believe I receive the mind of Christ today in this arena. I confess today, that You HAVE blessed me, so that I might BE a blessing, in Jesus’ Name, Amen.
