A Less Stressful Approach to Finances

Description

True financial peace comes from accepting God’s lordship over all things, including our money; managing the resources He entrusts to us according to His financial principles; and being a generous giver.

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way which you should go; I will counsel you with My eye upon you.” (Psalm 32:8)

Are you experiencing new levels of insecurity? Have the things you placed your confidence in disappointed you? God tells us in Psalm 32:8 that He is prepared to instruct us and teach us the way that we should go.

This world will try to convince you that your purposes, goals, significance, self-worth, ambition, and life energy should be wrapped up in material things. For many, the world’s message is simple: make as much as you can, as quickly as you can, to retire as soon as you can, to enjoy a life of leisure as long as you can.

In addition, this world will tell you that if you have enough money, you can live free of fear and anxiety. In other words, place your faith and security in your net worth, your assets, and your ability to generate income.

But true financial peace comes from accepting God’s lordship over all things, including our money; managing the resources He entrusts to us according to His financial principles; and being a generous giver.

When you adopt this pattern of thinking, you’re no longer pressured from within to meet the world’s demands. Instead, you begin to define success by whether or not you’re faithful with what you have, regardless of the amount.

God does not measure success by worldly achievements and accumulation. He knows that if you are faithful with little, He can trust you with much.
