Walking In God’s Favor: Owe no man anything, but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law. Roman 13:8 KJV
The Only Thing That Sticks Closer To You In Adversity Than A Friend Is Debt
We believe overcoming financial bondage is one of the greatest struggles for you to obtain financial success. Many of you only dream of saving money. In many instances you do not experience financial success because you are trying to borrow yourselves into wealth. You want to look rich to cover your raggedness. You desire to appear prosperous to hide your poverty. You feel that wealth can heal your wounds.
Living In Debt Sacrifices Your Future Day Needs, For Your Present Day Wants
Many of you do not see anything wrong with living in debt. The more you can borrow the better. We didn’t either at first; just like the story of the frog . I’m told if you put a frog in a pot of water on a stove with no lid, and gradually turn up the heat, the frog will remain in the pot until it is cooked alive, even though the frog has the ability to easily jump out of the pot at anytime.
Initially we felt debt was a good thing; just a financial tool. It allowed us to obtain things we wanted now and we could pay for it in the future….WOW! That sounded like a good deal… Just like when the serpent lied to Eve in the Garden of Eden. He told Eve if she ate of the tree of good and evil she would not “surely die”. Listen to me people, if you play with snakes you will get bitten.
75% Of The Richest People In America Said Getting Out Of Debt Is The Key To Creating Wealth
Debt has been successfully marketed by banks and financial institutions in the United States as your pathway to prosperity. As a result, many of you have found yourselves in financial bondage with little or no hope of ever experiencing financial freedom again.
If you are in bondage because of debt, your first step into financial freedom is to admit your finances are out of control. If you continue to live in denial, you won’t seek help and you won’t break free. The Bible says that “the borrower is slave to the lender”. Ask God, in prayer, for the power to break free of debt. With God, and a made up mind, you can experience financial freedom.
