FINANCIAL FREEDOM, HOW?

FIRST:  We need a financial road map.  Most of us have never traveled on the road to prosperity and financial freedom before.  It is interesting that we would probably never think of taking a trip or planning a vacation without a good map, an itinerary, and especially without a destination.  So, how can we expect to become debt free without a means of getting there and a place in which to arrive?

THE PLAN:  Start by reviewing where you are.  Ask yourself: am I in debt?  Do I have more going out than coming in?  Do I have a budget?  Why is it important for me to get out of debt?  What are my goals? And most importantly, am I honoring God with the use of my resources?

THE PROCESS:  From the moment we start the thought process to financial freedom, the wheels of our mind are set into motion and we focus on a goal. With the mind working in conjunction with our focus, we will reach our goal, because where the mind goes the body has to follow.

THE PROMISE:  You will get where you want to go, once you see where you want to be.

Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct your paths (Prov. 3:5-6).

PRAYER FOR TODAY

Lord, every day there is a battle that goes on.  It’s the flesh wrestling against the Spirit.  Your Word tells us to walk in the Spirit, and we shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh.  (Gal. 5:16)  We do have control over our finances.  The battle always begins in the mind with one thought.  Lord, give us power over our thoughts and let us bring every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ.

THOUGHT FOR TODAY

The best way out of debt is to have a road map to the Promised Land.
