from your recent way of life. Above all now is the time to believe in the promises of God for in John 10:10
Jesus says ‘The thief (satan) comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come that they may have
life, and have it to the full.’ (NIV)
So be prepared to tear up a credit card, tighten the belt and get down to organising a budget. Seek help
of your trusted brothers and sisters, your pastor or church members and be prepared for the Lord to
hammer you out on the anvil. Jesus said this in John 10:27, ‘My sheep listen to my voice; I know them,
and they follow me.’ (NIV) To listen, rather than pray for money to fall through the letterbox, is sensible.
Not only would such a prayer be insulting to God but, sadly, it will never be answered.
Then, slowly but surely, like an adult leading a repentant recalcitrant child, not only will we be put back
on the ‘track of stability’ but also we will have learned that seeking the world does no one any favours.
On the other hand, seeking God is the ultimate reward for faith because He promises much to us if we
do not live in debt and be generous to others. Luke 6:38 says, ‘Give and it will be given to you. A good
measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over will be poured into your lap...’ (NIV)
Take heart, for God knows our weaknesses but wants us to include Him in every aspect of our fi nances so
that we may have this measure. If we fall, He is faithful enough to lift us up.
