When it comes to financial security and stability, there are natural principles we need to put into practice.
God wants to bless us and prosper us, but if we are going to be wise stewards over what He puts into our hands, we need to know how to keep good records.
The Bible says in Proverbs 27:23, “Be thou diligent to know the state of thy flocks, and look well to thy herds.”
We need to know the condition of our checking account, our savings account, our 401K, our investments, our house, our car, etc. If we want to make more money so we can buy a bigger house, or buy a new car, or put our kids through college, then we have to know how much money we’re currently making, what we’re spending, and how much more we’ll need. That means we need a financial roadmap to get us from where we are to where we want to go, and we need a good system to help us keep track of our finances.
We need to be good stewards of what we have and know how to keep good records, so that we can manage increase when it comes.
Faith is based on fact, not fiction. Set some financial goals. Then write down what you currently have and what you will need to meet those goals. That will give you something to set your faith on so you can believe God for opportunities and increase to meet those goals.
