A Quick Bible Meditation For Financial Freedom

God wants you to prosper financially. He wants you to have all things at all times so that you are always ever ready to give away for his cause. If you don't believe it, stop working to make money. 

2 Corinthians 9:6-15

Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness, while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God. 

For the administration of this service not only supplies the needs of the saints, but also is abounding through many thanksgivings to God, while, through the proof of this ministry, they glorify God for the obedience of your confession to the gospel of Christ, and your liberal sharing with them and all men, and by their prayer for you, who long for you because of the exceeding grace of God in you. 

Thanks to God for His indescribable gift!

God's purpose for your financial freedom is that you can be a blessing to others. It's not just about you and your family but also for reaching out to the people in need of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

A desire to be financially free is not a sin as some might think it is. Poverty is a curse. Prosperity is a blessing. 

Proverbs 10:22 NKJV

The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it.

This verse is not talking about being rich spiritually, but financially rich.

Financial freedom is to be free from the bondage of poverty. It means to be able to look after oneself, and the family well without anything lacking. 

It is God's will that his children be well fed and taken care of. Jesus once said, "If being evil, you take care of your children well, how much your heavenly Father will take care of you who loves you so much."

So, please be confident in his love for you, and do not repel God's blessings.

Matthew 7:9-11 

Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!

According to Jesus Christ, God is a loving Father who gives good things to those who ask him. You don't need to feel guilty or ashamed to ask the Father the good things you desire to have. 

He loves you. It brings immense pleasure to him when you show your dependency and trust in him. I feel great when my four years old son asks me whatever he likes. He believes that I can provide anything for him. It's a great feeling to know my son's trust in me for anything he wishes to have. 

Some believe that God gives poverty to keep you humble before him. That is absolute rubbish. No earthly parents allow their children to suffer poverty if they have the means to supply their needs. God teaches us through his word. He has also given us the Holy Spirit as our teacher and guide.

God has a plan to give you financial freedom. Now, let's look into Jeremiah chapter 29 verses 11 to 13, “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.” The word peace here he is talking about is not just about peace of mind. It’s about wholeness, completeness, health, prosperity, etcetera.

According to the Brown-Driver-Briggs and Strong’s Bible lexicons, the word peace in the Hebrew language is shâlôm, shâlôm which means the following:

Brown-Driver-Briggs' Bible Lexicon

Shalom means the following:

1) completeness, soundness, welfare, peace

1a) completeness (in number)

1b) safety, soundness (in the body)

1c) welfare, health, prosperity

1d) peace, quiet, tranquillity, contentment

1e) peace, friendship

1e1) of human relationships

1e2) with God especially in covenant relationship

1f) peace (from war)

1g) peace (as adjective)

Strong's Bible Lexicon

Shalom means safe, that is, (figuratively) well, happy, friendly; also (abstractly) welfare, that is, health, prosperity, peace, do, familiar, fare, favor, friend, greet, good health, perfect, such as be at peace, peaceable, peaceably, prosper, prosperity, prosperous, rest, safe, safely, salute, welfare, all is well, be well, wholly.

Today, let’s just focus on this word Shalom which means completeness, soundness, welfare, peace, welfare, health, prosperity, quiet, tranquillity, and contentment. In other words, nothing missing - nothing broken. No lack. No poverty. No infirmity. A perfect life that Jesus talked about here and now.

Poverty is the result of misconceptions about God and the person himself. Nobody is born poor, but only the perception of things people choose to believe in. Every human being bears the image and likeness of God himself. Poverty, as well as prosperity, is only the state of mind. I have lived in both states of mind and experienced them, and the best I found out was to live in a state of a prosperous mind.

Poverty mentality is ugly and evil. It paralyzes you of your potentials. On the other hand, a prosperous mentality energizes and motivates you to dream big and achieve them. Financial freedom starts from one’s mind. You can never be free financially unless you first become free from the poverty mentality.

According to Strong's Concordance with Hebrew and Greek Lexicon, the word meditate is hâgâh in Hebrew which means to murmur (in pleasure or anger); by implication to ponder: imagine, meditate, mourn, mutter, roar, sore, speak, study, talk, utter. 

We are encouraged to meditate on God's word by the Holy Spirit since the Bible is purely written by his inspiration through different people in different periods. The Holy Spirit is the Author of the Bible.

When we meditate on God’s word we hear the voice of God in our spirit. And then it cultivates faith in our hearts by which we can appropriate the promises of God and live by them. So, meditate on the following Bible verses and worship God accordingly, and you will see the victory over your circumstances.

The word confession in Greek homologéō means to say the same thing by agreeing with another person. According to Thayer's Greek–English Lexicon of the New Testament confession means the following:

to say the same thing as another, i.e. to agree with, assent

to concede

not to refuse, to promise

not to deny

to confess

declare

to confess, i.e. to admit or declare one's self guilty of what one is accused of

to profess

to declare openly, speak out freely

to profess one's self the worshipper of one

to praise, celebrate

According to Strong's Concordance with Hebrew and Greek Lexicon confession means to assent, that is, covenant, acknowledge, confess, profess, confession is made, give thanks, promise.

Confession of God’s word means we are officially agreeing with Jesus Christ concerning his will for our lives. When we confess the word of God believing, and agreeing with what God’s word is saying we receive what we say.

Therefore, meditate on the word of God until you become confident in it and then start saying the same thing in agreement with Jesus. If you consistently do it and remain faithful till the end you shall surely have your desire materialized.

God as the source of our existence desires us to live in shalom. Let’s meditate on Jeremiah chapter 29 verses 11 to 13 from New King James Version, The Amplified Bible, New International Version, and New Living Translation.

Jeremiah 29 verses 11 to 13 New King James Version

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.

Jeremiah 29 verses 11 to 13 Amplified Bible

For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the Lord, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call on Me and you will come and pray to Me, and I will hear [your voice] and I will listen to you. Then [with a deep longing] you will seek Me and require Me [as a vital necessity] and [you will] find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.

Jeremiah 29 verses 11 to 13 New International Version

For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call on me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you. You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.

Jeremiah 29 verses 11 to 13 New Living Translation

For I know the plans I have for you,” says the Lord. “They are plans for good and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope. In those days when you pray, I will listen. If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.

God's thoughts about you are your wellbeing in all aspects of life. He doesn't want you to live in lack and poverty. He wants your life to be perfect, nothing missing - nothing broken.

Please listen to this message time and again until your mind is renewed concerning God's prosperous plan for your life. Meditate and confess this truth day and night until it becomes a part of your life.

Abba, Father! Thank you, for your great plans for my life. Your constant thoughts about me always do me good. They are never to harm me. It's always about to prosper me in every area of my life so that I can be able to help people in need and to be a witness of your love to them. Thank you, for giving me the wisdom to prosper and be financially free. I pray in the name of Jesus, amen. 

Please share this video with those who are suffering financially so that they may listen to it and be encouraged to stay strong in faith and be financially free. 

You are blessed by God in Christ Jesus with every blessing there is.
