Order Precedes Increase

Before God can take us somewhere, we need to know where we are. This applies to every area of our lives, including our finances. We need to establish financial order in our lives. We must understand that order precedes increase.

JoeMcGee October_Quote Box_4

When people come to me for financial help, my first questions to them are, “How much debt do you have? How much do you owe?”

“We don’t know,” they tell me. “We just know we’re in trouble.”

Then I’ll ask, “Where are your bank statements? How much money do you have?”

They’ll say, “Some of our statements are on the kitchen table. Some are in the den. They’re scattered all over the house!”

Proverbs 27:32 says, “Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds.” And Proverbs 29:18 says, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.”

Friends, a lot of people are perishing needlessly simply because they have no vision and no plan, for their finances, and they have no financial order. These are very natural processes, but they have spiritual consequences.

Before God can do His supernatural part, we must do our natural part. We must get our finances in order, and we must create a plan.

THE TAKE AWAY

Take time to go over your current financial status. Make a list of how much you owe and how much income you currently generate. Create a budget—a spending plan—to begin working toward paying off debt and also to locate areas where you may need to watch your spending.
