Money is a huge issue for most Christians.
How much time do you spend thinking about money? Several times each day? Does your mind ever go around in circles figuring and refiguring expenses?
Are you in debt?
There is a divine principle with regard to money and it is sowing and reaping. If Christians took God at His word concerning money, there would be overflowing streams of supply for ministry and missions. Many more hungry would be fed and the Body of Christ would know less illness and would be free from financial stress.
Soldier of The Cross, it is a mistake to assume the money is yours and that you must give God a token portion. All of it is His. You are a steward.
Have you ever tried this:
“ Give, and it will be given to you. They will pour into your lap a good measure—pressed down, shaken together, and running over with no space left for more. For with the standard of measurement you use [when you do good to others], it will be measured to you in return.”
Luke 6:38, Amplified Bible
Mankind’s relationship to money is a form of slavery unless he lives by God’s design.
So many have said to me “I can’t afford to tithe.” I have never understood that. How can you afford not to? Yes, tithing is an Old Testament law and principle. However, the New Testament sets forth a freedom from tithing that implies abundant giving beyond comfort. The Macedonians for example, gave lavishly out of their deep poverty (II Corinthians 8:1-5).
The only way to learn to depend on God is to take Him at His Word and prayerfully determine to live before Him in this specific area.
Give regularly and generously. Give to the Work of The Lord, and also give (perhaps secretly) to those you know are in need.
Take it to Him. Aloud
Then go find someone to love.
