Beginning today, and over the next several weeks, we’re diving into a new series on the broadcast and we’re going to be looking at what the Bible has to say about our finances. We’ve all experienced a time in our lives where things were good and things were not so good. My hope for you is that this series will give you some practical wisdom you can use to make the most of your good times and to make it last through the lean times.
Our prosperity begins in the choices we make – for good or for bad. When it comes to your finances, as in other areas of life, what you don’t know CAN hurt you! But the good news for us is that we have a Heavenly Father who is well able to supply all of our needs. We need to learn how to hear and embrace the wisdom He has for us before the financial storm comes. The reality is that God doesn’t usually stop the storms, but He always provides the wisdom and warning to avoid them before they hit.
In Genesis 41, we find the story of Joseph. Sold by his brothers and falsely imprisoned, it would be easy to see why he might give up. Even in the middle of the toughest situation in his life, God was positioning Joseph so he could put a course of action in place that would save Egypt and the surrounding nations. One word of wisdom from God through Joseph was able to feed an entire nation. By heeding the instructions that God gave them before the famine struck, Joseph was able to be a source of provision for the family that had once turned their back on him.
Quite simply, there’s no way you or I can know the type of impact we can have when we obey the wisdom of God with our resources.
Over the next four weeks, we’ll continue searching the Word to discover how to develop financial peace and fiscal security in our lives. If you’re ready to start the process in your life now, I encourage you to take advantage of the brand new teaching series, “Inside Information.” Once you learn how to tap into the wisdom of God for your finances, you’ll be able to thrive in the face of any adversity.
The wisdom you choose to use now will determine your future!
God bless you!
Living in Grace and Peace,
Dr. Derek Grier
