Financial freedom is what everyone prays for. With this financial freedom, you can be able to settle your bills and the bills of others. But the problem is that if you are struggling financially, people help you to pay your bills instead of you paying them yourself. No one is praying for financial struggles which is the reason why I'm writing this.
In case you are struggling to pay your bills (say you are poor), the Bible has a formula for you. This formula is what I want to bring to your knowledge so that you can apply it and see the difference. Therefore, if you are struggling financially, study these Bible verses.
1. 2 Corinthians 8:9
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich. NIV
The same way Jesus Christ died for your sins, so also he died for your poverty. He came into this world as a poor man even though He is originally rich. This simply means as long as you obey his commandments, you are not permitted to be poor. Have that at the back of your mind then we move to the next stage.
2. Psalm 1:3
He shall be like a tree Planted by the rivers of water, That brings forth its fruit in its season, Whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever he does shall prosper. NKJV
The next thing you should know is that as long as you have decided to serve God, you shall be like a tree planted by the riverside. Any tree planted by the riverside is not expected to die off but maintains its fertility. That is who you are. You are not permitted to be poor but before this promise works for you, you must understand the last line in the verse.
3. 2 Thessalonians 3:10
For even when we were with you, we would give you this command: If anyone is not willing to work, let him not eat. ESV
Probably, why you are struggling financially is because you don't want to work. God doesn't tolerate laziness. The last line in the book of Psalm where we read earlier says "Whatever he does shall prosper". This means you have to be doing something so that God can make it prosperous. He who doesn't work is not expected to be rich.
4. Malachi 3:10
Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,” says the LORD of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it.
Probably, laziness might not be your problem because you are actually working but are you paying your tithes?. God instructed us to bring the 1/10th of our income into His house so that He can bless us beyond our control. It is a simple ticket to greater wealth because it is like asking God to bless you more. If you have not been paying, please start paying.
5. Luke 6:38
"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” NIV
It doesn't stop at paying your tithes but extends to giving others. The little God has blessed you with is meant to be used to bless others so that God can bless you more. God doesn't bless those who keep their wealth to themselves while there are people out there who need it. Always learn to give because God would give you back a hundred folds.
My people, if you can apply these instructions to you your daily life, wealth won't be far from you. I pray that you shall never be poor in your life in Jesus' name. Amen. Are you blessed by this article? Please share.
