August 9, 2020 Spirit Meat Meat Devotional :- UNDERSTANDING THE POSITIONS, A MAN CAN HAVE TOWARDS MONEY FOR EFFECTIVENESS IN LIFE AND DESTINY (I) – PROVERBS 10:22, I TIMOTHY 6:9
Today, we will be looking at the different positions a man can take towards money. The source of any blessing that comes into your life matters a lot. It is better not to have something than to desire it from the devil. The devil will always add something negative to a man, but the blessings of the Lord maketh rich without adding any sorrow. The level of your cravings for money will influence your position towards it.
1.Money as a currency: The first position you can have towards money is to see it as a medium of exchange and a source of wealth. At this level, money is neutral. But how you spend money will not leave you the same just as how you get it too, it can either affect you positively or negatively. Hence, there is a need to get your philosophies about money correctly and avoid the danger of wrong desires for money. You need to identify the reasons why you desire to be rich in the order of importance, if your reasons contradict the will of God, the devil will come to offer you something else. God has His reasons for blessing people. God told me many years ago: “My son, everything that I plan to give you under the sun, the devil can also give you – promotion, physical things, a wife, a husband! You must make up your mind who you want your source to be – God or the devil.”
PRAYER: Holy Spirit, enlighten my heart and quench every wrong craving and desire for money. I choose You to be my source.
