Finding Financial Relief Through Christ

Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today, and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, how much more will he clothe you—you of little faith! And do not set your heart on what you will eat or drink; do not worry about it. For the pagan world runs after all such things, and your Father knows that you need them. But seek his kingdom, and these things will be given to you as well. Who then is the faithful and wise manager, whom the master puts in charge of his servants to give them their food allowance at the proper time? And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.

What is obligation does a borrower has to a lender?
Does the Scriptures say its a SIN to be in debt?
Do being in debt make you feel that you are slave to the lender?

Luke 12:12-31 & 42

Hello May.

It is true that God will take of our needs but the problem is that we don't have faith. When we trust in God fully,wholeheartedly,firmly,
without any doubt many things will come our way.

There is a saying DO YOUR BEST AND GOD WILL DO THE REST.Most of us expect things to fall in our lap without working for it.Jesus himself gave a parable of the servant who didn't use his talent and he was punished by the master.It is our duty to God to use our talents to the best of ability and succeed in the material wold also.God wants us to be successful in this world also.There is nothing to be ashamed of for being successful in life.But we should ensure we don't lose our souls for success in this world.This should be our guide line.

Your post is thought provoking an inspiring.

Best wishes,
Joseph

Another great post with a lot to think about! It seems everyone is drowning in debt. It took us a few years but we are no longer in debt. If I can't afford it now then I don't need it! (:

God is our great provider. We must not worry about our needs but instead lift them up to the Lord who will bless us with abundance far beyond our comprehension. As we walk in the will of the Lord, we are assured that He will always take care of all our needs. Thanks for the inspired post. God bless you all always.

The Bible says and God wants us to pay our debts. It does say...and I'm paraphrasing here...owe no man anything. When we borrow it does make us a slave to the lender, especially when ya get in deep and in trouble. 'Been there...done that. I can't find anyplace that says do not borrow but that 'owe no man' thing comes darn close doesn't it???

I'd probably be safe in sayin' that none of us has that new car or house money just layin' in wait. It is impossible to have those necessities in today's world without the 'loan'. We need to be good stewards and be able to pay our debts in a timely manner.

Sorry this is long but I've been on the other end of the stick before and it's just not a peaceful place to be.

God bless ya and have a wonderful day sweetie!!!

I think we each must live according to how we feel God's spirit is leading us to understand these scriptures. My sons have all commented on how we live differently than everyone they know; but we live how we feel led by God. Yet we're fully aware that not everyone feels led as we do. We live in southern California and own our home, but do not have any debt. I used to make a lot of money but we chose to live modestly so that we could ensure we did not accumulate debt. For us this brings us a freedom and peace, and allows us to give as we feel led.

Very true, that God is our great provider, but why is that more christians are still struggling financially. Though it was already revealed when God says, seek first my kingdom and all things shall be added unto you. I myself is also trying to follow the instruction and hopefully could be able to let the worry out of my vocabulary. Thank you for sharing this post:-)

I agree with Yen that there are still Christians who are struggling financially. Maybe that is the area of faith where they are being trained to trust God for. It is a difficult situation but it can be overcome through God's strength. It takes faith and hard work.

As a non-denomination Christian baptized and renewed in the Holy Spirit, we also believe in tithing. This is very true, because God commands us to do it. If we don't tithe, we "rob" Him. And tithing only works when you obey Christ. Obeying Christ without tithing will not make you prosperous. When we mean prosperous, it's not only in the area of finances but in every area----relationships, marriage, spiritual, ministry, finance, etc.
Because, seeking God means "obeying all His commands" because we love Him, and that includes tithing.
Tithing has done so much in our life. I could attest to this with a million occasions---with most of my family members who are tithing.
