My husband and I have been taking a financial class together for the past few weeks. Today in the class we learned about breaking the bonds of debt. In Proverbs 22:7 The rich ruleth over the poor , and the borrower is servant to the lender. This was a huge eye opener for me. When we are in debt we are carrying chains around our necks. We have become slaves to the person or company that we borrowed from.
God doesn’t want this for us. He promises us a better life, life more abundantly! God wants to break all of the chains in our life, not just the chains of sin and death. He wants us to be FREE! In Matthew 11:28-30 Jesus says, “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
The burden that God places on us is light. We don’t have to carry it alone. If we come to Him with our burdens and cast them on Him, He will carry the weight. All we have to do is believe His promises and use the resources that He gives us.
I just want to encourage you that if you are going through some tough times financially that this is not what your Heavenly Father has planned for you. He does have plans for you and they are to give you hope and a future. Lean on Him and trust His promises. Also, if you would like more info on the class we are attending, leave a comment and I will be glad to give you more information. I HIGHLY recommend this class. God’s peace be with you.
