GOD IS CALLING FOR RENEWED MINDSETS
Today, the philosophy of the world is to obtain as much money, land, and as many houses, cars, stocks, and investments as possible and to hoard them. The world’s basic perspectives concerning money are: Get as much as you can. Spend as much as you can. Acquire and enjoy as many worldly possessions as you can. Store as much as you can. If you are governed by your carnal mind in your finances, then you will be unable to please God or reap His blessings for supernatural provision. 8 And those who are in the flesh [living a life that caters to sinful appetites and impulses] cannot please God. Romans 8:8 (AMP).
On the other hand, if your thoughts (which involve your imagination, attitudes, and preconceived ideas), circumstances, emotions, speech, hearing, and vision are all influenced, governed, or controlled by the Holy Spirit and faith in God’s Word, it will bring life and peace. 2 In this case, moreover, it is required [as essential and demanded] of stewards that one be found faithful and trustworthy. 1 Cor. 4:2 (AMP). Yes, many of you are living in such a state of defeat in your minds that you can’t imagine that you really are the overcomer that God says you are? 33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33.
To live in God’s cycle of supernatural provision, you cannot rely upon your natural mind or depend on your natural understanding to develop your financial plan. Your mind must first be renewed by the Word of God. When your mind is renewed—and you have a revelation concerning the spiritual, financial principles in God’s Word—then you will be able to use and apply them in the practical areas of your finances. You cannot afford to follow the world’s methods or principles when it comes to money and finances. Spirits of lust, greed, and selfishness rule that realm. Paul said:
And be continually renewed in the spirit of your mind [having a fresh, untarnished mental and spiritual attitude].
~Eph. 4:23 (AMP)
