TWO KINDS OF MINDSETS TO HELP YOU STOP BEING A BORROWER AS A BELIEVER
Every high flyer in all fields of endeavor will tell you there are RULES THEY OBEY TO BECOMING HIGH FLYERS
Gaining the will of not borrowing is one of the hidden REQUIREMENTS, CONDITION AND DIVINE DETERMINANT OF YOUR FINANCIAL PROSPERITY OR NOT.
Many BELIEVERS don’t know this or they try to play around it and this is one of the reasons many are down in poverty.
Every BELIEVER must as a matter of neccesity come under the STRICT discipline of not borrowing or else he or she won’t be PROSPERED by God the way God wants to.
” For the LORD thy God blesseth thee, as he promised thee: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, BUT THOU SHALL NOT BORROW; and thou shalt reign over many nations, but they shall not reign over thee”. (Deuteronomy 15:6)
You see, we all know from English studies that “BUT” in the scripture above is the conditional statement for the first sentence God made.
Any believer who takes BORROWING as next option when things go tight is only telling God He (God) doesn’t care enough to meet up with his need so he opts for the next available option.
You know that the Bible says:
“Owe no man any thing( including money), but to love one another: for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.”
SO LET ME SHOW US WHAT MENTALITY WILL HELP STOP THE BORROWING RUSH
Take these scriptures seriously:
(1) Psalms 84:11
For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly.
From this verse, Holy Ghost taught me that God WON’T withhold anything GOOD from the righteous, so He told me IF EVER YOU FEEL ANYTHING YOU LOVE HAS BEEN WITHHELD FROM YOU, WATCH IT CAREFULLY THEN, IT’S NOT A GOOD THING FOR YOU BECAUSE GOD COULDN’T HAVE LIED.
This has kept me from all kinds of borrowings for over 20 years now. I owe no one living or dead.
(2) PHILLIPIANS 4:19
” But my God shall supply all your needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
The Holy Ghost also used this scripture to teach me two things :
(a) God has vowed to supply all my NEEDS (NOT WANTS)
So I learn to separate what I want from what I need. I don’t disturb God with my wants therefore because it is the NEEDS that He promised to supply.
Mattew 6:33 takes care of my wants when you obey.
(b) The Holy Ghost said to me, God has vowed to supply all my NEEDS, He said therefore ANYTHING GOD HAS NOT SUPPLIED TO YOU, YOU DON’T NEED.
From this I don’t get to complain about anything, I just go for the next available route that won’t make me let God feel I am disappointed in Him, and God has never failed. God has bought over 38 cars for my family in cash from this principle without having to beg and borrow just within 12 years. This was we who started from the scratch of scratch. Every thing is discipline.
STOP BORROWING, borrowing brings shame also the borrower is servant to the lender, and you can’t serve God and Mammon.
Because of the quantum of the balances in some of our accounts, two of our banks approached us for overdrafts and loans but I declined, why ….? because the Master said ” ..BUT THOU SHALL NOT BORROW”
Once you choose to be the BORROWER, don’t expect God to make you the LENDER. You can’t be the two at same time in the covenant. Secular people can do anything, but Biblical FINANCIAL COVENANT works with covenant CONDITIONS, one of which is..”BUT THOU SHALL NOT BORROW”
That’s why new birth is not all about going to heaven; before heaven comes, we come under strict Biblical FINANCIAL DISCIPLINE so as to receive and enjoy the earthly dividends of our new birth.
YOU WILL NOT SUFFER IN JESUS NAME.
God bless you.
