|The Wealth of Money
(excerpt from Faith-Based Solutions: Believing Your Way to Wealth)
Read the Bible and ask for God’s guidance. Ask a trusted friend or Pastor who is very familiar with the Bible. Then study it for yourself. If you seek the truth, you will surely get it.
Jesus said that if we seek we will find (Matthew 7:8). The truth—the Bible—is the only thing that will never let us down, because it was orchestrated and written by the One Who created us.
Why would we waste our time and energy on something that’s just a bunch of hot air? Set goals for yourself, yes, but walk in alignment with the truth of God’s word toward achieving them.
Can you remember even one prayer that God was faithful to answer how you wanted? Maybe more? Remember and ponder those times and practice being thankful.
Don’t you like to be thanked when you do something kind for someone? Are you more apt to do something else for that person if they express their gratitude?
Practice thankfulness every day until it becomes a way of life, a permanent attitude. Being thankful helps us be more positive, and the result is that we complains less. When our focus is on God and His blessings, we become more like Christ, which is what attracts the prosperity of the Kingdom.If we’re not thankful for the blessings we already have in our life, then why would God bless us with more?
Note the story in Luke 17:10-19, “As He entered a village, ten leprous men who stood at a distance met Him; and they raised their voices, saying, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” When He saw them, He said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they were going, they were cleansed.
Now one of them, when he saw that he had been healed, turned back, glorifying God with a loud voice, and he fell on his face at His feet, giving thanks to Him. And he was a Samaritan. Then Jesus answered and said, “Were there not ten cleansed? But the nine—where are they? Was no one found who returned to give glory to God, except this foreigner?” And He said to him, “Stand up and go; your faith has made you well.”
When we look God’s way with a thankful response, it pleases His heart. Practice remembering the goodness of God. When we can see how He worked in our past, it helps us believe that He is personally involved in our present.
Use your quiet time to reflect on what you have asked God for and to remember how He answered you. Ask Him to show you how He answered your prayers.
When we are rooted in the belief—in the truth—that He loves us personally and intimately, that He not only died for the world, but for each of us individually, then it becomes easier to believe more and more of His promises—that they aren’t just for others, but for us personally.When our faith increases, then our sight...Click to continue
