Freedom Starts in Your Heart
Most financial issues aren’t really money problems. They’re heart problems.
At 30 Days to Financial Freedom, we believe you were made for freedom, and we want to help you live in it. And in all my years of learning about financial freedom and helping other people do the same, I have discovered that one simple principle is more powerful than anything else: Freedom starts in your heart.
if your heart isn’t free, no amount of money or self-control is going to change your financial status. In the Bible, Jesus teaches that many of our financial difficulties happen because our hearts are tied up in an unhealthy relationship with money. Here’s how He describes it in Matthew 6:24 –
Your financial situation doesn’t depend on how much money you have — it depends on who you serve. And that’s a decision you make in your heart. The first steps to lasting financial freedom take place in your heart.
Here are three things you can do to prepare your heart for the journey to freedom.
Pinpoint your real problem.
It’s easy to think your money issues come from a low income, high expenses or bad habits. Those things may be contributing to your stress, but they’re not causing it. The problem isn’t outside you; it’s within you. If your heart is divided between loving money and loving God, you’ll never experience true freedom.
Face your real foe.
Your heart is a battleground in the struggle between good and evil. And the enemy will use money — or money problems — to make you a slave. God made you to live in total freedom, but the devil wants to keep you from it. Your struggle isn’t against people or companies. It’s against an enemy who is trying to capture your heart.
Serve your real savior.
To live in the freedom you were made for, you have to win the battle inside your heart. That means walking away from the world’s approach to money… and the bondage that comes with it. If you want to succeed, commit to following God’s freedom plan completely, no matter what the world tries to sell you.
Walking the Road to Freedom
You’ll never have real peace if you hold God at arm’s length. But if you follow Him, you’ll find freedom you never thought possible.
