February 10, 2018: Death by Money: The $10 Solution (show 5 of 5)
Jesus said in Matthew 17:20, “if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” That’s a huge promise! When it comes to money (and other areas of life also), how big is your faith? The sad answer to that is that it’s a big as your financial knowledge. But, financial knowledge comes from living in the world. Is the world’s system the same as God’s? Of course not. But most people I meet look at God’s financial promises and principles from their experience with finances in the world. Then they always want the ‘secret strategy’ to show them ‘how’.
The ‘how’ is actually the easy part. The challenge is the paradigm shift away from what you can see or think you’ll see, towards the truth of God’s word that demonstrates again and again that we ‘walk by faith, not by sight’. This obviously doesn’t mean we gamble with money or spend money we don’t have. It means God’s Word is truth and operates in the spiritual realm to create results in the natural realm. Satan’s domain is the natural realm and he does not want God’s people to prosper – financially or otherwise. His plan is for isolation, lack and uncertainty by directing our attention to money, instead of the Word of God.
