Daily Read – Numbers 14:1-15:16; Mark 14:53-72; Psalm 53:1-6; Proverbs 11:4
Riches do not profit in the day of wrath,
But righteousness delivers from death.
In times of trouble and turmoil, I am the only answer. Without Me in your life, money means absolutely nothing. In and of itself, it is powerless in its efforts to bring comfort, relief, and escape. It is just a piece of paper with green ink.
On the dollar bill a declaration of faith is written, "In God we trust." This is a riveting statement except, many in My church have put their trust in the paper this is written on and not in Me. As a result, there is an economic shaking taking place.
I will have no idols set before Me. Idolatry of any kind brings serious repercussions. It opens enormous access points for the enemy to enter setting up strongholds and roadblocks in the spirit realm.
Money in and of itself is not evil, but the love and dependency on money is the root of all evil. All evil
is rooted in the love of unholy mammon. This misplaced love leads to emptiness and ultimately death.
Worldly money and riches do not profit in times of anguish. They cannot provide when economic systems crash; they cannot bring healing when bodies are attacked with sickness and disease; and they cannot provide comfort when heartache comes. Only those who walk in My Kingdom can experience deliverance from these things. I use money to bless My children, but without My blessing, money is powerless accomplishing nothing in My kingdom.
However, with My blessing, it is a powerful tool for Kingdom purposes.
I hide My righteous ones in the secret place of My Spirit where they are unaffected by erratic fluctuations of the stock market, economic upheavals, or anything else the world system spews. They place their trust in Me and rest in the confident assurance of who I am in their midst.
Money is not your healer....I AM
Money is not your provider...I AM
Money is not your deliverer...I AM
Money is not your comfort...I AM
Money is not your answer...I AM
Father, thank You for the revelation that money is powerless without Your blessing. All things belong to You including money. Regardless of news reports and broadcasts, my trust is in You and not in mammon. Though economic systems may shake and crash, I stand steady and secure on the rock of my salvation. Without Your blessing, money cannot provide happiness, healing, comfort, or meet any of my needs, but with Your blessing, Your Kingdom grows.
