Hope in a Hopeless Economy

It is almost to good to be true news but there is hope even in a time such as this. I want to share with you three Ps that will help you. 1. Plan - no plan means no plenty. 2. picture - if you can see it you can have it. "My people perish for lack vision. 3. Persevere - live with in your means.

If your output is larger than your input, your upkeep is your downfall! We should live by the 80% rule 10% goes to tithes, 10% goes to savings, and we live on 80%. If you can't live on the 80% you are living beyond your means. Luke 16:3 says No servant is able to serve two masters; for he will hate the one and love the other or he will stand by the one or despise the other. You can't serve God and mammon." (riches or anything that you trust and rely on)  Mammon was a Syrian god-the god of debt.

1. Debt takes a way personal freedom
2. Debt robs us of our options
3. Debt keeps us from serving God
4.Debt robs us from giving to God
5. Debt makes you say no to God

Proverbs 13:18 says "Poverty and shame come to him who refuses instruction and correction but he who heeds reproof is honored. Psalms 68:6 says God places the solitary in families. He leads the prisoners out  to prosperity."

I don' serve a god of debt, I serve The God of debt cancellation. God will make a way. He will lead us out of debt. God will give us wisdom, ideas, and witty inventions. If you have a need - sow a seed. You will never do anything about your debt until you get angry about it.

Nehemiah  5:11says "Restore no to them, even this day, their lands, their vineyards, their olive groves, and their houses, also a hundredth of the money and the grain, the new wine, and the oil, that you have charged them."
1. Keep good records
2. Plan your spending
3. Reduce debt (Start with your lowest bill, when that is paid off add that payment to the next and so on)
4. Pay tithes
5. Always give God your best above the tithe

Psalms 66:12 "You brought us out to a wealthy place. (Abundance)

I hope this teaching blesses you as much as it does me. How are you doing this year? Have you realized how important it is to get out of debt? Debt is just the devils way of counterfeiting God's blessings.
