"You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you." Isaiah 26:3
"The sleep of a laborer is sweet, whether he eats little or much, but the abundance of a rich man permits him no sleep."
The biggest thing people struggle with in life is money or finances. Work hard to earn money and sometimes most people have to work even on Sundays to get more extra income to support their family. Now a days, many people are suffering from financial crisis and keep worrying about their needs. At church this morning, the Pastor talked about "How to have a financial peace of mind", I was so blessed with the message and I thank God because He speaks to me through His word. I want to share the five (5) ways on how we can have a financial peace of mind.
First: Don't make money the most important thing in your life.
(Luke 12:15/Matthew 6:33)
> Our relationship with God and our salvation is the most important thing in our life.
Second: Share your blessings to others (Luke 12:33-34)
Third: Don't be anxious about tomorrow (Matthew 6:31-32)
> We should remember the one who holds tomorrow is the one who holds our life.
Fourth: Think of yourself as God's money manager
(1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
> God can tell us to give or use something for Him anytime.
> We can relax because everything we have is from God.
Fifth: Be thankful to God and enjoy what you have
(Philippians 4:11/Hebrews 13:5)
There are two things that destructs us to have peace of mind and that is fear and envy. Fear of not having enough and envy against others who have more than you do. We must have "faith" that God will supply all our needs and let us rejoice with other people for their success and pray that God will help us to succeed. God is our provider and He knows everything that we need. We always have enough when God is our supply!
