In today’s text, God said to Abraham “…look from the place where thou art northward, and southward, and eastward, and westward.” Answering the question of where you are financially results in financial progress. There are different states people can be financially, and we will look at them today:
1. Are you in Debt? If you are in debt, it could be one of two kinds of indebtedness: First; “In debt but I’m coming out because of the truth and revelations that I am learning.” Second; “In debt but I’m going deeper because of foolishness and Satan’s operation.” You cannot look from where another person is financially. Vision becomes confusing when you are not approaching it from where you are financially. If you are in debt, ensure you don’t go deeper; instead, start coming out.
2. Are you Buoyant? If you are financially buoyant today, are you becoming poor because of foolishness or you are becoming stronger because of truths you are imbibing? If you don’t have a budget, you don’t know what you spent last week and cannot estimate what you will spend next week, you may be buoyant but eventually become poor. Therefore, you must have a budget and know exactly what you are doing. God is more concerned with what you are becoming than what you presently are. Focus more on what you are becoming by what you are doing or not doing, than what you are.
3. I’m at average level. It can go either way, not blessed not cursed. Don’t remain here.
4. Insufficiency. Here, you are not yet in debt, but you hardly have your needs met. You need to work more with your spare time to increase your streams of income.
