Try as we might, mankind will never fully ‘get God’ in most situations and the issue of money is definitely one of them.
We want everything to make sense and wouldn’t it make sense that good people always have the money they need and evil people not?
Apparently not. He puts riches into the hands of obviously evil people and has done so throughout history.
Can we figure Him out? Nope. Do we need to? No, not really.
We especially don’t need to spend time worrying about how other people get money. What we need to spend time on is how we’re going to earn and manage what comes into our hands!
During a prayer meeting this week, one believer admitted that she struggles in praying for specific things because it is so measurable.
It’s easy to pray fuzzy prayers for ‘more money’ and ‘greater blessings’.
It’s more challenging to pray for $1000 by the end of the month.
Why is that? Well, if you pray for more money and you get an extra ten bucks, that’s more, right? You can say that your prayer was answered.
But if you pray for $1000 and only get ten extra, that’s a prayer that wasn’t apparently answered.
That’s a faith killer for the “ye of little faith” believers.
I understand – if we have been disappointed in prayer before, it’s hard to take that leap of faith and pray boldly for specific financial increases.
But we need to!
Our Father in Heaven owns this world and everything in it. If we line ourselves up with His plans, He’ll show us how to access it!
Deuteronomy 8:18 reads:
But remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the ability to produce wealth.
Yes! He gives us the ability to produce wealth.
He specifically gives us the wisdom to make good decisions in our business so that we can tap into it.
Jeremiah 33:3 reads:
Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.
Psalms 32:8 reads:
I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go; I will guide you with My eye.
These scriptures are invitations to seek His guidance.
Get specific with your prayers from here on out. If you need $1000, pray for $1000 then ask Him to show you how to get it. Spend time listening and expecting answers.
God may show you exactly the steps required to connect you with that $1000 dollars.
Or, He may just deliver it supernaturally, you never know!
It’s His Bank. He can do what he wants with it, Amen?
