A Prayer for Spending Cash 
By Heidi Vegh

“Nobody can serve two masters, for both he’ll hate and love the opposite or be dedicated to the one and despise the opposite. You can not serve God and cash. – Matthew 6:24

Whether or not now we have lots or are in want, cash could cause points and struggles in our lives and relationships. God is aware of our tendencies as people; a few of us like to spend cash, have a tough time holding onto cash, and are challenged to avoid wasting. Others hoard what they’ve, maintain it for themselves, and by no means share. Neither of those bless the Lord nor those round us. God calls us to have a wholesome relationship with our funds, however it is just via following Jesus and obeying His Phrase that that is attainable. 

Nobody is proof against the destructive maintain that cash can have on our hearts in lots or in need. I’m a spender. I like to buy and get new issues. Nonetheless, God has taught me all through my life to hope about my spending and to take heed to the nonetheless, small voices that lead me in my monetary choices. God needs us to reside a lifetime of generosity, placing God earlier than cash. We can not serve each God and cash. (Matthew 6:24

What does this appear like virtually? Initially, God calls us to provide. He calls us to take 10% of our revenue and provides it to our church to assist additional the kingdom of God. This could be a problem for some as they both don’t perceive or have hassle trusting God with that portion of their revenue. This coronary heart difficulty can solely be resolved between us and the Lord. Nonetheless, in my very own expertise, I’ve trusted the Lord with a portion and have seen His hand on my funds. I’ve by no means gone with out. That isn’t to say that I’ve not struggled financially, however God at all times supplies. (Philippians 4:19)

“Don’t retailer up for yourselves (materials) treasures on earth, the place moth and rust destroy, and thieves break in and steal. However retailer up for yourselves treasures in heaven, the place neither moth nor rust destroys, and the place thieves don’t break in and steal; for the place your treasure is, there your coronary heart (your needs, your needs; that on which your life facilities) will even be. – Mathew 6: 19-21 (AMP)

Jesus is asking us to be smart with our funds. He’s asking us to not put our belief in cash. It’s okay to save cash and make smart choices about our future. Nonetheless, that may not be our sole supply of safety. Our safety and peace should come from God alone, no matter our monetary life. Our belief needs to be in God alone, as Jesus tells us that He alone is the bread of life. 

“Then Jesus declared, ‘I’m the bread of life.  Whoever involves me won’t ever go hungry, and whoever believes in me won’t ever be thirsty.’” – John 6:35

Let’s pray:

Lord, thanks for the blessings in my life. Thanks for offering for my wants and giving me what I would like day by day. Nonetheless, I discover myself worrying over cash and the way I ought to spend it, reserve it, and provides it. Cash could be a enormous supply of stress in my life, and I need to have the ability to reside in peace concerning my funds. I wish to reside a life pleasing to you. I lengthy to belief you so absolutely with my wants that I don’t spend any of my time worrying over how my wants and my household’s wants might be met.

Please assist me to belief you adequate to place that cash within the basket because it passes by and present me miraculous provision in order that I gained’t ever doubt you once more. I ask for monetary blessings, Lord in order that I can use what you present to assist these in want. I don’t wish to hoard what you give me, Lord, however I lengthy to be an individual of generosity and a vessel for use to bless these round me.

Train me how you can spend properly, Lord. Communicate to my coronary heart after I make a unsuitable monetary choice and convict me after I spend cash on one thing that isn’t vital. I lengthy to be content material in all I’ve, whether or not I’ve rather a lot or slightly. I wish to reside in monetary safety due to your presence in my life, not the numbers in my checking account. Present me you thru my funds, Lord. Thanks for being Jehovah Jirah, our supplier. You alone can present what we’d like.

Please assist me to not rely solely on myself or others to offer for my wants. Give me knowledge with each cent that comes via my fingers. God, present me what to provide, save and spend. I wish to reside in your will. Thanks, Lord, for caring for my wants and exhibiting me your love and care each day. Please open my eyes to the miraculous ways in which you take care of me.
In your valuable title, Jesus, we pray, amen.
