Owe No Man Anything

 Heaven Ministries

Have you ever felt stressful or anxious over your financial situation? Maybe you are way over your head and canít get out of debt? Maybe your family business went out of business. Maybe you were laid off from your job. Many things unexpected can happen to our financial situation and make us feel apprehensive about our future. 

The first thing we need to do is take a deep breath, relax and pray about it, asking God to give us peace and comfort during our financial trial. It is certain that God hears our prayer, but sometimes the way we pray can be a hindrance. If we pray in vain asking God to miraculously somehow send us the money, that kind of praying will never get answered the way we expect.

God is not a Magician. He is our comforter and our assurance that one-day we will be with Him. If we have faith and ask for solace, He will give us the peace we need, but we will still have money difficulties. We should not ask God to rescue us from our debts but to help us from going into debt in the first place by giving us the knowledge we need to think outside the box of society for our needs.

Are we investing in a shaky economy or taking unneeded risks because we want more things? Is that where we are putting our faith? Are we sending our wife off to work and the children to day care because we want more stuff?  Are we really confident that that is whatís best for the family?

Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and there thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. (Matthew 6:19-21 NIV)

The believer must seek to avoid debt as much as possible. In this world there is only one certainty and that is God and His truths. So when we feel uncertain and ridden with anxiety about our financial situation we can take confidence that our life, no matter how much or how little money we have, is on solid ground. Thatís what matters.

Owe no man any thing, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. (Romans 13:8 KJV)

God does not want believerís to put their confidence in things that can be destroyed, instead, Christ Ones are to build their life on Christ and His unshakable Kingdom because that is our only certainly in an uncertain world. Knowing this then where would you most want to put your faith and trust?

ďCome to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.Ē (Matthew 11:28 NIV)
