The Secret To Financial Freedom No One Talks About

Scripture: Psalms 63:3-4

Because thy lovingkindness is better than life, my lips shall praise thee. Thus will I bless thee while I live: I will lift up my hands in they name.

Is a lack of gratitude causing many of us to be financial failures? Have you given God praise for the things that he has blessed you with in your life? Do you look at your finances with gratitude, praise, and worship, or pain, frustration and anger?

Now when I speak of financial failures, I’m not talking about a dollar amount. As I’ve said many times that the dollar amount a person possessive is not indicative of their financial success or failure. Financial success is subjective but it also has a criteria for evaluation. Financial success is when you are grateful for what you have. Financial success is when you are able to give to the less fortunate a portion of what is needed for your sustenance. Financial success is when you can save today’s dollars for tomorrow. And Financial success is when you smile when you think about the life you are living in Christ.

While looking at your finances, be grateful that you have what you have, because God can strip it away from you as he did Job. But just like Job, be sure to sing God’s praises. Even though God took everything from him, Job was grateful to have experienced the abundance of life.

Can you imagine, if Job complained the whole time about his family and his animals?

Even though he had great sorrow for his losses, he still praised God with this prayer “We bring nothing at birth; we take nothing with us at death. The Lord alone gives and takes. Praise the name of the Lord!”

The same with our finances. God gives and God takes but at every moment we should show gratitude. Today, I want you to look at your finances and thank God for what you have, and pray that he provides more because you have been a good steward over what he has blessed you with.

In the scriptures it says to study to show thyself approved unto god, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed. If you continue to work on your finances, you don’t need to be ashamed, God loves you, and we should let him know, that we know. I hope that you have been blessed.

Prayer: Lord, please give me a heart of gratitude. Protect me from the feeling of entitlement and know that you own it all. That what you provide is for my sustenance and to give to the less fortunate.
