Achieving Financial Peace in God’s Eyes

 

Happy Sunday to all my readers!   To all who don’t know, this website is Christian based, so much of my advice comes straights out of Biblical principles.   The Bible has a plethora of financial advice and God intended it for your benefit!   I wanted to write up an article today in reference to this morning’s sermon.   The sermon was on stewardship and the fact that God views our finances like an open field with freedom and joy.   God wants us to honor Him by giving to Him and His kingdom our first fruits of our labor.   This will look different for everyone.   The Bible doesn’t have a set standard on how to give your money away.   It really is a heart issue.   If the Holy Spirit is challenging you to up your monthly amount for giving, you should give that number joyfully!   This is one of the few instances in the scriptures where God tells his people to test him.

“â¦Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that you will not have room enough for it.” Malachi 3:10.❠  If that doesn’t get you excited, I don’t know what will.   Throughout my own life, I have seen this principle happen time after time.   Once you release the bondage of control❠over your finances, God will grant you peaceful protection, which is mentioned in Malachi 3:10.   Following these scriptures will get you one step closer to financial peace.

Alright, time to get off my soap box.   I’m glad I got this opportunity to share with you the convicting sermon I heard this morning.   It also made me think about my time and how I use it.   Am I using my time in a manner that glorifies God?   If not, how can I change it?   In closing, my challenge to myself and to all of you is this: if God promises that we won’t be disappointed in a financial step of faith, why don’t you and I try it?

God Bless and Happy Saving!
