14 September 2023: DEALING WITH THE ROOT CAUSE OF FINANCIAL PROBLEMS – Proverbs 23:7; Luke 16:8


I don’t think you have read any books that tell you that the Holy Ghost is part of wealth on the earth. If there was such a book, many people, especially unbelievers, would have sought to know the Holy Ghost a long time ago because they tend to pursue money more than believers do.

If people found out that the Holy Ghost is the highest form of wealth, you would find people who never intend to become born again troop into the church to look for Him, saying, “We want the Holy Ghost!” They’ll seek out the Holy Ghost, not out of an interest in Christianity but simply to access the wealth.

The Holy Ghost alerted my mind to the fact that wrong financial attitudes or mindsets are the major cause of financial problems. When we try to correct undesirable manifestations, many times we do not succeed because we try to correct manifestations without dealing with their root causes. For example, attitudes affect behaviours in marriage, at the office, and in life generally. Your attitude also affects behaviours that create health conditions. People do things without even knowing why they do them because they do not understand that attitudes are slippery.

Someone can find out some very powerful information that can turn his life around for good but despises it because his attitude is wrong. You may have read or heard fantastic statements about attitude, but how have you applied them to yourself?

PRAYER: Lord, help me to identify areas in my life where I have wrong attitudes and give me the grace to correct them in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Isaiah 15:1-18:7; Galatians 1:1-24; Psalm 58:1-11; Proverbs 23:12
