God never intended for his people to live beneath their privileges. He never intended for you to toil to have your ends meet. He never intended for you to be bankrupt financially, emotionally or spiritually. He promised and purposed to take care of your very needs. David said in Psalm 37:25-26, “I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken,nor his seed begging bread. He is merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.” You are His seed. He will always take care of you.
God wants you blessed. God is your father and God is good. A good father does not allow his children to go without if it is within his power to provide for them what they need. A good father ensures that his children’s needs are met. A good father ensures that his children are adequately prepared for all of life’s challenges and opportunities. Contrary to popular religious teaching God never intended for His children to live a life of lack, need or quiet desperation. God did not design us to live in lack, without the basic resources to care for ourselves and others.
If you don’t control how you spend your money, then it can cause your life to plummet out of control. To be released from the grip of financial bondage all you have to do is follow the principles discussed in this book. The spiritual wisdom found here is not new. These principles have been around for a long time. God does not want you to suffer. He wants you to live the life that He has designed and destined for you. If you follow the financial plan of God for your life, you will not experience another day of lack. Psalm 37:5 says, “Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.” Let’s be clear: I never said you are guaranteed to be physically rich in terms of money or stuff as the world defines rich. God did not promise stuff. But the Word of God does promise that “All your needs will be met.”
