Why Money Evaporates

1

Let's End Your Frustration.

There are many possible reasons it's been difficult for you to hold onto money. Let's talk about the one possible reason first.

 

God Does Not Honor Money Earned The Wrong Way

"Money wrongly gotten will disappear bit by bit; money earned little by little will grow and grow." (Proverbs 13:11, CEV)

Some believe that bigger sums of money can be earned faster through things like selling drugs, prostitution, gambling, or theft, etc. One person blows his paycheck on lottery tickets, a woman sells her body to men for sex, another man sees an opportunity to steal something valuable and takes it. Each believes they can make some quick, big bucks, save them, and then stop forever, but the money always disappears.

Because that money is under God's curse.

The Bible promises that God will cause money to slip through His children's fingers if we insist on earning it "our way" instead of His way. We can fight this principle for years, but it will always remain true.

God will not allow those He cares about to succeed that way because it would teach His children they could succeed outside of His Will. He cares more about your dependence on Him and obedience than He does your financial success.

No matter how much we don't like that truth, it doesn't matter. We're fighting against God Himself and He won't bend. "Better is a little with the fear of the Lord, than great treasure with trouble." (Proverbs 15:16, NKJV)

The truth is that God Controls All Finances. The sooner we realize this truth and surrender to it, the faster we will be on our way to financial prosperity.

If the above does not describe your situation, but money is still a struggle, keep going! We have a lot more to talk about.

Let's Go to Step 2

*Because God "chastens those He loves" (Hebrews 12:6), those very rare individuals who do seem to prosper greatly from sinful means should be worried. Very, very worried. Thankfully, if you are reading this, you most probably are not in that group.
