Do God’s Financial Principles Work For Every Christian?
Return to: Christian Articles
God’s financial principles will help you understand God’s financial plan for His people. These principles work in association with Romans 10:17 which state that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. If we want to have faith to grow our finances, we must hear words of God’s possibility over words of fear, doubt and discouragement for money or whatever we need.
I Corinthians 1:27, “But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty…”
Introduction: The World Can’t Understand The Things Of God
When I was a child, I was taught in my family church that God chooses who He will heal and who He will bless financially. These blessings were only for certain people. I challenged these two statements as a young adult because I couldn’t find one verse in the Bible God that backed these claims. Instead I found that the opposite was true. God’s blessings are for all believers who trust God’s Word!
As a young adult, I wasn’t doing so well financially and I needed healing, so I began my quest to change my situation in Christ. The following is what I learned about money. I proved with my life that this same information is relevant for any of God’s blessings, including healing.
Everyone that comes to Christ has their own preconceived idea about money that is usually different than how it should be regarded Biblically, especially when it comes to prosperity. This means that all new Christians or Christians new to the Word must transform their minds to God’s thinking regarding the blessings they need through Christian mind renewal.
The Truth About God’s Financial Principles
God blesses His people financially and abundantly but if Christians don’t follow God’s plan for money growth and debt relief, they will never know how to get in line with the abundant life that Jesus promised believers in John 10:10. If we don’t transform our thinking to God’s thinking, we can’t understand how to receive our financial blessings and perpetuate what we have.
God is spirit (John 4:24), but the world can only acknowledge Him by intellect or emotions. Believers are re-born in Jesus Christ, which is a spiritual process. Therefore, we communicate and understand God by spirit. Receiving salvation makes believers a “new creation” (2 Corinthians 5:17) in Christ. This conversion enables us to understand God’s Word in a way that causes it to transform our lives by faith and to believe that we have eternal life in Christ Jesus.
For unbelievers, reading the Bible is like reading a book in a foreign language. One may be able to recognize the letters, but not the words they create, so there is no understanding. This is how it is with God’s Word. Christians can lack understanding about God as well by choosing not to follow Jesus by following the same direction in life they did before they were saved.
This is how we turn away from God, and in the process, Kingdom living. If we decide to remain committed to God, we can enjoy kingdom life with Him and receive our kingdom blessings so that we can be a blessing. Otherwise, our thoughts and ways will wander away from God’s ways and his truth, especially concerning financial prosperity.
God’s Financial Principles At Work
If you’re having financial difficulty like many today, you need a plan – God’s plan! Rather than complaining like the people of Israel did, you can take action with the money you have and trust God to bless you with more.
Don’t be stuck for 40 years in the desert of poverty and debt. Read the Word concerning God’s financial plan, work it, and then use faith over it by trusting that God will provide for you. Once you let go of feeling victimized, you can grab onto God’s Word and never let go. You can become a victor in Christ over your money.
The Best Time To Look To God
Ideally the time to look to God is when all is going well. If we practice faith and trust in God while all is great for us, then when things get difficult we’ll be ready to stand bold in faith, rather than in fear. But for those who are new to the Word, you can begin right now and take control over your money by trusting God!
Take just one step of faith and you’ll be on the path of money growth and debt relief. You can expect God’s help for your financial breakthrough. The door of opportunity with God is open and ready for you to enter. If you choose to look at this time of your life, which may be difficult, as an opportunity to become strong and bold in Christ, you’ll begin to see what God can do!
I’m speaking from experience, not from conjecture. This is the time to see possibility instead of disaster, financial growth instead of financial doom. It is YOUR TIME TO RECEIVE THE FINANCIAL BLESSINGS YOU DESERVE.
People who don’t believe that Christ is the only way to eternal life can’t receive from God because Jesus Christ’s work on the cross is our key to receive from God. Therefore, it’s not God that keeps us from our blessings, but our choice to either accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior or reject Him. This is what Christians do when they choose not to follow Jesus.
Those who are saved have faith to follow Jesus and receive God’s blessings, so we can’t blame God if we’re not blessed in any or all areas of our lives. We have a free will to choose how we’re going to live. If you’re lacking in money, today is the day to look to God as your provider for what you need. Become a victor, not a victim of the world’s financial system which was created to steal, kill, and destroy your ability to thrive and prosper.
John 10:10, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
