Romans 13:8 (The Message Bible) Don't run up debts, except the huge debt of love you owe each other.
Sounds to me like the only debt God wants us in is the debt of Love!! So why are there so many people still battling DEBT? I believe it's because they don't have a vision to get out of debt. Our vision should be "I am going to do whatever it takes to get out of debt".
Begin by allowing God to teach you how to get out of debt; put your finances under His authority, by allowing Him to direct you on how to handle your finances. Make a commitment between yourself and God to stick to your vision on getting out of debt.
Here are a couple of things that happen when you have a vision to get out of debt:
- Your vision will speak to you and help you make the right decision with your finances.
- When you go to spend money on something you don't need, you should think about your vision and what you are trying to do.
- Your vision helps you to endure through the sacrifices; and you need endurance to get out of debt, because it doesn't happen over night!
- A vision helps you to avoid waste, people throw their money away daily, and God is not going to bless WASTE!
Proverbs 22:7 (King James Version) The borrower is servant to the lender.
God doesn't want us being servant to: credit card companies, hospital bills, banks or any other kind of creditor. He wants us to be free to do all the things He called us to do. Get with God and work on your vision TODAY!!
I have faith in you!! I know you can do this!! We will do it together!!
