Money matters in our life. Just because you’re a Christian doesn’t mean you don’t need money or that something’s going to fall out of the sky. In fact, you’re part of an eternal kingdom and God has given you laws, rules. They’re not the rules and laws of the world, they’re the laws and the rules of God. As a Christian, we are to be in a “Divine Partnership” with God. This partnership is conditional… “if you ___, then I will ___.”
Your money has a purpose!
I often say, “money is to the world what the anointing is to the child of God.” You see, there are two things that Satan really, really fights. He fights your provision and he fights the power of God. Because if you’re weak and defeated, and you’re a victim, and can never get out, you’re just going to say, “I’m barely making it into heaven by the finished work…” Well, you will make it into heaven, but you won’t do what you’ve been assigned to do here on this earth.
That’s your purpose. That takes God’s power, and that’s God’s promise to you. But then it also takes provision. Do you want your children to struggle like you did? Or would you like to turn that generational curse around and begin to leave generational blessing? You say, “Paula, how do you talk with such authority?” Because God has allowed me to live this…
God is looking for Kingdom Builders to fund the Kingdom!
But, as I say in the Introduction, “This (Money Matters) is not a super-spiritual book. I’ve written a number of those already about finances. This is the book that will help you in the natural. We’ve got to do both. We’ve got to get our hearts aligned spiritually so that God can bless us, but we also need to be wise and learn how to manage the blessings He bestows upon us.”
