Scripture: Ezekiel 36:27-And I will put my Spirit in you and move you to follow my decrees and be careful to keep my laws.
Have you made financial mistakes? Have your finances been defiled by poor decisions? Do you feel like there is no hope?
Well if God can restore Israel to it’s glory, then he can restore you finances.
The people of Israel defiled the land and was profane with the name of God. They didn’t deserve to be in the land. But God makes a promise to cleanse them. But he gives a warning. Be careful to keep my laws. The same with finances. We should be careful to follow the laws to prosperity. Such as spending less than we make, investing our excess, leveraging according to our risk tolerance, and think twice, spend once.
God said that he would put his spirit in the people of Israel. In finance, education works as the spirit. It is the guide to prosperity. Because you can’t practice what you don’t know. It will guide you to follow solid financial principles that will help you reach your goals. Just like the people of Israel, are we going to let the next generation fall into the same temptations as we did, or are we going to teach them better ways?
Are we going to let them fall to the dangers of over extending ourselves, spending tomorrows income today, and falling victim to instant gratification?
Today, I want you do an exercise. Find out how much you have and start EAR MARKING your money. This money is for tithing, this money is for rent, this money is electricity, this money is for my retirement, this money is for entertainment.
This is not a budget, this is an allocation. The downfall of most mental financial plans is that they have a bunch of money and spend at random. But when you allocate your funds into categories, you become conscious of what you are spending.
If you have $10,000 in a vacation fund, you know when you are starting to dig into it.
Remember education is the spirit that moves you to follow the decrees of finance and be careful to keep the laws of math and finance. That includes the power of compound interest, and that goes for profit and debt. I hope you have been blessed.
Prayer: Lord, please don't let me fall victim to poor financial decisions that you have warned me about. Allow me to spend time learning about financial stability so I can teach the next generations.
