In January 2010, I was speaking to a group of marketplace leaders in Mumbai, India. A haute couturefashion designer came up to me and intensely said, “I just realized I am a financial hostage. I have no biblical basis for anything I am doing. I did not know that the Lord specifically cared about my business. Help me out of this destructive trap—doing things my way!”
He’s not the only one.
Many people wonder and ask me if God really cares about their finances. Believe it or not, Jesus talked about money more than He talked about salvation, faith and grace. Why? The Lord knew: “What you think about money and how you use it will greatly shape your earthly and heavenly destiny.”
There are over 2,350 verses in the Bible concerning money, provision, business and success. Does this tell you that God cares about your finances?
Okay, I hope we’re clear on that.
Now, another important question arises: What is His plan for my financial life?
All I can tell you now is that you will discover it in your personal walk with the Lord. Believe me: God wants to reveal it to you!
In Isaiah 48:17-18, He says, “I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you in the way you should go. If only you had paid attentionto My commandments! Then your well-being would have been like a river, and your righteousness like the waves of the sea.”
I also want to assure you that all God’s plans for you are good. I hope this encourages you to seek Him even more.
I am so excited to share with you what I’ve learned about money from my personal experience with Lord. Stay tuned!
