Four Ways God Will Not Use Money in Your Life
Did you know that according to His Word, there are ways God will not use money in your life?
1) God will not use money in your life to cause fear and anxiety in your life.
Jesus tells you in Luke 12:22, “…do not worry about your life, what you’ll eat; or about your body, what you’ll wear. Life is more than food, and the body more than clothes….”
Proverbs 10:22–“It’s the blessing of the Lord that brings wealth and He adds no trouble to it.”
If you have worry, fear, or anxiety about any part of your life, God is missing from that part of your life. If the material things in your life (including money) cause you anxiety, you have either a) denied His wisdom or b) moved out of His will.
2) God does not use money to divide spouses, family, or friends.
Money is still the number cause of fighting in marriages, families, friendships, and business. Too many divide over financial issues. Our world has seen far too many churches, ministries, families, friendships, and marriages sour over financial issues.
3) God does not use money to insulate you from problems.
If you believe God uses money to protect you then you are setting yourself up for disappointment and a challenge to your faith.
God instead use problems (especially finances) to mold and strengthen your character. He is testing you, stretching you, and trying to bring you closer to Him.
4) God does not use money to raise your standard of living or to look down upon others.
Far too many people who become wealthy become arrogant, self-centered, and look down upon those who have less (even Christians). Paul warned about this in 1Timothy 6:17 – “Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.”
