A Prayer for Financial Breakthrough

I've come to the realization that money is not a issue but the mindset behind money. The Bible states in 1 Timothy 6:10, "For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil. And some people, craving money, have wandered from the true faith and pierced themselves with many sorrows." So we see here the verse is telling us that when we become so eager for riches, we've missed the point of our true faith. Our faith should be solidified in Christ and Christ alone. Yes, we need money and God knows this, we have bills, we need to eat and take care of our families but how do we trust in the Lord when we can't see it manifesting for us in the physical realm? We can pray all day and still might feel a sense of lack. I love what Jesus said in Matthew 6:26-34, He describes the birds in the air and states " Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?"  and then He goes on with describing the lilies of the field in comparison to our worries on materialism, "So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin;  and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these.  Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith?"

And the Jesus went on saying to seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added on to you. Jesus then ended this conversation by saying do not worry about tomorrow but sufficient for the day is its own trouble- meaning leave tomorrows worrying for tomorrow and be grateful for what you have today. 

In order for us to receive more tomorrow, we must show appreciation for what we have today. If we believe in God, we must put the word of God into action, we must begin to use God's word to build up our faith in Him. 


My husband and I love digging deep into the word of God for revelation and understanding. If I simply listened to the revelation of man indicating that my blessings are only financial, then I've missed the point of my blessings. The form in which the Lord blesses you financially might be unexpectedly each month, you might not even receive it at the time you expected it. Know that God sees and knows everything that is happening to you. He knows when you have enough and when you don't have enough. He knows how much more you need and exactly how much you need. People with faith, are blessed because they are putting their faith in what is unseen. 

Let us meditate on Matthew 6:26-34, understanding that whatever you might be experiencing today, your heavenly Father will make a way for you. Simply place your faith in Him alone and find contentment in your current situation so that you may appreciate the level that God is taking you to. 


Here is a prayer for you:
