God wants us to be wise with the finances He gives us. Proverbs tells us that a “fool” spends whatever he gets.
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
(3 John 1:2)
You are where you are right now financially as a sum total of the decisions you’ve made to this point. However, they say that the biggest push to change is being faced with reality.

If you or your spouse lost your job, how long could you make it without a paycheck? 6 months? 1 month? Until Friday? If you were told that you had 6 months left to live, would you be satisfied with your financial condition? Would your family be taken care of? Would they have to sell the house? Pay off your debts? Borrow money?

Sometimes we need a good “wake up call” to realize something has to change. I know I did. God said in His Word, “I wish above all things that you prosper and be in health even as your soul prospers.” (3 John 2) God wants you blessed. Why? So you can be a blessing!

Rodney and I (amazingly) saved $38,600 in 5 months! It was a lot of sweat, late nights and praying for opportunities. But the most disappointing fact about that is this: after we raised that large amount of money for our house in 5 short months, years went by and we did not save one dollar! Why? A person with NO VISION will always return to their past.

We went right back to our old patterns of spending everything we earned. We had no vision. We had no focus. We had no financial goals. And our finances were perishing (Proverbs 23:18).

God wants us to be wise with the finances He gives us. Proverbs tells us that a “fool” spends whatever he gets. Let’s determine to stop playing like a fool and allowing Satan to distract us from our goals and our purpose. We should be so blessed that when God brings an opportunity across our path, we seize it. If we see a need, we meet it. God wants us to be able to publish the Gospel in foreign languages, finance mission trips and build safe houses for victims of human trafficking, but we can’t if we spend everything we make and have nothing but debt to show for it.

Determine today to get a vision for your finances.
