Walking In God’s Favor: Because God is always at work in you to make you willing and able to obey his own purpose. Philippians 2:13 GNT
How serious are you about becoming the person God designed you to be? Many times we say words with our lips that are inconsistent with our actions. Why is there so often a disconnect between what you say and what you do?
The answer to this questions is not the same for everyone. For some, its just lip service, but for so many others it has sincerely been a struggle to do the things we know to do. We can relate to Paul when he says in the bible “For the good that I would, I do not; but the evil which I would not, that I do.” Romans 7:19 (KJV)
Never Give Up
Ardella and I journey out of financial bondage has been a long, tedious one and it stills continues. There have been times when we felt like we were treading water, making no progress at all. Then there times in which we would take one step forward and one or two steps backwards. What is it, that motivates us to keep going, even when we could not see the light at the end of the tunnel? We have two answers for that question; prayer and bible promises.
Prayer has given us strength, power and wisdom to make tough decisions and change our lifestyle. God’s spirit has given us hope when we felt weak or discouraged. We stayed faithful even when it looked like it was impossible to remain faithful.
Wherever you are in your spiritual journey, find a promise that you can use for whatever situation you find yourself in. The bible contains over 3,000 promises concerning your financial victory and one has been tailor made for you at this moment in your life.
You serve a God who is bigger than your problems. He knows the beginning and the end. He is personally concerned about your needs. How can you not succeed? There is no limit to what God can do the lives of faithful stewards.
When you begin to experience success and victory, remember to give God the glory. Resist the tendency to feel like you did it by yourself. Remember the words of Wernher von Braun ” I have learned to used the word impossible with the greatest caution.”
You are invited to visit our Life University Family Finances Class Empowerment Session July 2nd 7pm http://www.firstsdachurch.com discover bible promises to help you obtain financial victory.
