The Lord will open for you His good storehouse, the heavens, to give rain to your land in its season and to bless all the work of your hand; and you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.
God's original design in creation was for His creatures, including mankind, to experience prosperity, peace, and fulfilment. The Bible says we are to be wise with our money. We are to save money, but not hoard it. We are to spend money, but with discretion and control. We are to give back to the Lord, joyfully and sacrificially. We are to use our money to help others, but with discernment and the guidance of God’s Spirit.
Prayer for the day:
Lord, You are a wonder making God who always hears and answers my prayers. Your promises never fail and Your Word is righteous and true. Thank You for sending rain to my land and bless the work of my hands. I praise You for Your goodness and faithfulness to me. I know You desire to bless me with financial resources so that I will get out from under the load of debt and be freed to serve You more fully and to give to the important causes of Your kingdom. Today I will arm myself physically, mentally and spiritually to serve You with a cheerful spirit. In Jesus' name , Amen.
