The Silver and Gold Are His!
Yesterday, we talked about God’s divine principle of sowing and reaping as it relates to finances and freedom. Prosperity, including financial prosperity, is a very common subject in the Bible. Did you know that there are more than 2,000 references to money in the Word of God? Jesus very often spoke about money and wealth. In fact, maintaining the ratio of references to money in the Gospels, if Jesus were writing “A Miracle Every Day,” He would speak of it every third email!
Understanding these divine principles from the Word of God will truly release God’s blessings in your life!
Here is one key passage about money: “‘No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.’ Now the Pharisees, who were lovers of money, also heard all these things, and they derided Him.” (the Bible, Luke 16:13-14)
The problem is not the money itself but the love of money, clinging to it. This is why the religious people of that time (the Pharisees) derided Jesus. They loved money! And if God encourages us not to love money, and there’s spiritual power behind it, it’s for our good. God wants us to be happy! His desires and wishes for us are the best!
“For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.” (the Bible, 1 Timothy 6:10)
The Bible adds…“Let your conduct be without covetousness; be content with such things as you have. For He Himself has said, ‘I will never leave you nor forsake you.’” (Hebrews 13:5)
God has promised to never abandon you. He will never neglect or desert you. He has the power and desire to provide for all your needs. Everything is His, even the gold and silver. How liberating for us!! May God work the miracles in your life, including the financial miracles, that you need!
