Have you made bad choices and now you are paying the consequences? Do you have bad financial habits such as borrowing money, spending money impulsively, or not balancing your checkbook? Do NOT stay in your current situation one more minute!
In Psalm 107, there are 4 groups of people that cry out to the Lord. All are in trouble and need the Lord's help. Some are in trouble because of their own sin and others because they have been sinned against. ALL cry out to the Lord and ALL receive mercy from His hand!
"Then they cried to the Lord in their trouble and He delivered them from their distress. He sent forth His Word and healed them; He rescued them from the grave. Let them give thanks to the Lord for His unfailing love and His wonderful deeds for men," (Psalm 107:19-21 NIV).
You can cry out to the Lord too if you are in financial bondage or in the middle of a financial trial. Most often, God sends forth His Word to heal those in bondage or undergoing trials. His Word will wash your mind clean of the world's lies and the devil's lies. The Bible is full of promises to claim and principles to apply.
Do not spend one more minute wallowing in self-pity. Instead, cry out to God! If you have sinned, repent. If you have broken biblical principles, repent. If someone has sinned against you so that you are in financial ruin, forgive them. Then, CRY OUT to GOD!
Crying out to the Lord should continue until you are in financial freedom! While you are praying about your finances, put feet to faith and begin to apply the Word of God to the money God has entrusted you.
For the Joy Set Before Us!
