The first financial mistake that people make is that they don’t submit themselves totally to the kingdom way of finances. Hence, they are not willing to be subject to God’s system. You must be willing to unlearn many things and learn the things of God. The fastest way to do this is, whenever you come to God, don’t come with the mindset of, “why is it like that?”, rather, come with the mindset of “so this is how it should be”. God is will not do for us supernaturally what He expects us to do naturally, and He will not expect us to do naturally what He is to do supernaturally. A Christian that is going to succeed financially and in other areas of life must understand this.

Your result in life will be determined by the seriousness that you bring to God on both the spiritual and physical sides of your life. God is a serious God and if you approach and serve Him with all your heart and seriousness of mind and spirit, then you are on your way up the ladder of divine success. It is a mistake to assume that we will all have the same results in life, so always check what you are having as your experience.

Financial challenges can lead to physical challenges that can cut a life short. In every divine act, God will never tell you to do something that you cannot naturally do in your current state of existence. If that thing is not possible for you to do in your current state of existence, then it is not God that is telling you to do it. The life of a Christian should have a supernatural side to it that men cannot naturally or logically explain. Even though you are carrying a flow, the flow can stop; but the flow cannot finish. What determines whether the flow stops or continues is your obedience.

 

The instructions of God are always possible for a child of God to obey.  There are things that God wants you to do that you don’t want to do, but there are rewards attached to it. God will not bless you if you are not ready to do more work. If you will not work with grace, then there is no point putting the grace there. When Jesus came, He worked. In fact he worked until he finished all that was assigned for Him to do. 

Prayer: Lord, I submit myself totally to the kingdom way of life and handling finances. I receive grace to align every aspect of my life with your program and design for my life in Jesus’ name. Amen.
