Train yourself to handle financial prosperity well

Train yourself to handle financial prosperity well

Share this Article

D.L. Moody said. “We can stand affliction better than we can prosperity, for in prosperity we forget God.”  Another preacher has said “The Christian is more apt to disgrace his faith in prosperity than in adversity. It is a dangerous thing to be prosperous…When we are full, we tend to forget God. Rest assured it is harder to know how to be full than it is to know how to be hungry.’ True. Financial prosperity can certainly make us forget God, after first making us proud and self-sufficient. It is necessary therefore for us to train ourselves to continue to have a solid relationship with God when we experience overwhelming abundance. And we can do it through the grace of God. We can determine not to allow anything to come between us and God, not even wealth. Rather we can commit ourselves to Christ’s ethical and moral system. Also, If Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, David or Joseph of Arimathea could handle wealth/prosperity well, we should be able to do it easier. We have what they didn’t have –  The Holy Spirit and Holy Scripture.

“The wealth of the world is nothing to God. So if your wealth increases, don’t be boastful or put your trust in your money…” Psalm 62:10a (TPT)
