I have great news for you! God Wants To Be Involved in Your Finances!
We see God’s Creative Power to prosper us throughout the Word.
In the Bible we see that God has a lot to say about money. The currency of the Old Testament was silver, gold, land, crops, and herds of animals. Investments were barns filled with hay and storehouses filled with grain for sowing and feeding herds.
And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold. Genesis 13:2
This was the form of currency used at the time. Today we use paper money, credit cards, and electronic banking, bit-coin, but the results are the same— we trade it for what we want or need. Abraham listened to God, and God blessed and prospered him. He learned the spiritual principles of prosperity firsthand. God wanted to be involved in Abraham's finances, and He wants to be involved in yours.
Let's look at some of the fundamental principles of Abraham's prosperity: 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 principles. 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 with others is part of the spiritual law.
There are those who [generously] scatter abroad, and yet increase more; there are those who withhold more than is fitting or what is justly due, but it results only in want. The liberal person shall be enriched, and he who waters shall himself be watered. Proverbs 11:24-25 AMP
Solomon understood the principles of prosperity. He was one of the richest men who ever lived! His proverbs reveal many truths regarding finances.
Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: so shall 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 28:27 AMP
In 1 Kings chapter 3, the Lord appears to Solomon and says, ...Ask what I shall give thee (v. 5). That would be a dangerous question for some people! But Solomon only asked for an understanding heart to help the people. God's response was to give him wisdom, and because he wasn't greedy for himself, I have also given you what you have not asked, both riches and honor, so that there shall not be any among the kings equal to you all your days (1 Kings 3:13 AMP).
God wants your needs to be met abundantly! But in order to have true riches, the motive of your heart must be to bless others also 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
From the book of Genesis to the words of Jesus and the writings of Paul, we see proof that God does indeed want to be involved in our finances.
Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Matthew 6:30,33
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. 3 John 2
When we get our soul to prosper and get in line with God's principles, then we can see financial prosperity manifest in our lives. The prosperity of the soul is simply the renewing of the mind to the Word of God. We must study the Word diligently and put God's principles and thinking in our minds about prosperity and finances.
...not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another--and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:25
