Leaving Your Financial Wilderness

~ Leaving Your Financial Wilderness ~

One’s instinct to survive goes against giving all, as if we’d lose all that’s left. And, whatever we think we possess is just a figment of our imagination. Yet, we cling to it for dear life.

Consider conscious choices you’ve made. Didn't you think they were yours? Truth is, every thought keeping us separate from God is based upon a lie. Logic, not given us by the Spirit, is based upon misplaced faith. Apart from God, we are not even in our right minds. They are not our thoughts at all, but Satan’s planting!

Giving all is not throwing everything out the window. Neither is it about being good enough. It is a choice, of the heart, to choose God and His direction, in all things.

Perhaps you want a new sofa, but would have to charge it. So, you seek God, who reminds you of scripture to not owe any man.

Do you kick and scream about your wants? Or, have you, yet, been burned enough that, if God isn't in it, you already know you don't want it?

Choose God.

Soon, someone may be giving away their sofa. Just think of the financial bondage you will have averted!

Perhaps you want a special blouse. But, there is greater need to pay bills. God knows your furnace will be going out next week and you will, otherwise, come up short. Will you argue? Or, are you finished with being on the losing end?

Suppose it is the end of the month and your glasses break. You can not do without them. So, you place your faith in your charge card. Right?

Is there no God? Did you even stop to ask His way? Perhaps new lenses would fit in your old pair of glasses. But, you never thought of that! Well, it could be because you didn't ask.

Ok, so, perhaps, you would prefer another option. Maybe someone, long forgotten, will return money owed to you. Just do not short change God.

These are only some of the steps of faith we may take, knowing that only God knows the way out of our financial wilderness. And, in such, He helps us to become stronger with each step we take; growth, later, proving to have been beneficial to our calling.

Eventually, we come to realize God cares about everything we care about and He is trustworthy to do the most loving thing possible. And, once we finally realize it all belongs to Him, we discover He owns it all!
