Throughout the Bible, we see that God has a lot to say about finances. God wanted to be involved with Abraham's finances,
and He wants to be involved in yours. Fundamental principals of Abraham's prosperity:
"And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold." Gen. 13:2
"He listened to, and obeyed God." Gen. 12:1-4
"He honored God, who prospered him." Gen. 12:7
"He was generous, and avoided strife." Gen. 13:5-9
"He was compassionate toward others." Gen. 18:24-33
If you want God to be involved in your finances and prosper you, you must honor these basic principals. You cannot be greedy
and truly prosper. There is nothing wrong with wanting to have abundance for yourself and your family, but giving to God and
being generous to others is part of the spiritual law.
Solomon understood the principals of prosperity. He was one of the richest men who ever lived. His proverbs reveal many
truths regarding finances.
"Honor the Lord with thy substance, and with the first fruits of all thine increase: so thy barns be filled with plenty,
and thy presses shall burst forth with new wine." Proverbs 3:9-10
"He who gives to the poor will not want, but he who hides his eyes [from their want] will have many a curse." Proverbs
But in order to have true riches, the motive of your heart must be pure, to bless others and establish God's covenant.
"And beware lest you say in your [mind and] heart, my power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth. But
you shall earnestly remember the Lord your God, for it is He Who gives you power to get wealth that He may establish His covenant
which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day." Deuteronomy 8:17-18 AMP
God does indeed want to be involved in our finances. Most Christians who are defeated in their finances are defeated because
they believe and confess the words of the enemy, and those words hold them in bondage. What we believe and speak affects the
natural world, including our finances. God has given us His Word so that we can understand these spiritual laws. When you
work with these laws, they work for you. When you work against God's spiritual laws, they work against you.
When you speak negatively about your financial situation, you have what you say and believe. Here is a very important spiritual
law: You can have what you say. With your words you can choose life or death, poverty or riches, sickness or health. You may
tithe 10%, work hard, and pray for prosperity every day, but if your words are negative and contrary to God's Word, you could
stay in debt, struggling to make ends meet.
Words are powerful, but God's Word is full of creative power. When you agree with what God has said about you, speaking
His Word, your circumstances will begin to change and line up with His Will for your life.
