The most important thing to remember before praying for a financial miracle or breakthrough is that God cares more about our heart and soul (character; moral compass; Christ-like virtues, etc) than how much money we have in the bank. Many times when God speaks of “prosperity” for His children, He’s speaking of strong faith, long life, good health, blessing of family and friends, etc. Notice how ‘prosperity’ sometimes has nothing to do with money. God knows that if our heart’s condition isn’t rightly ordered, wealth could actually hinder our spiritual progress and relationship with Him – the most important aspect of our earthly lives.
That being said, God is infinitely wise. He understands that having money is a necessary part of life as well. After all, how can we bless others with the gift of finance if we ourselves are in lack? Once our hearts are ordered properly, God loves to bless (financially) His children – especially when He knows we’ll be good stewards of those blessings.
Three things to keep in mind when seeking a financial blessing:
1.) God must remain FIRST
“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money” –Matthew 6:24;
2.) We must first be trustworthy with the gifts God has already given us
“Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches?” –Luke 16:10-11;
3.) We are called to be good stewards with what He’s about to give us by giving to the poor (Prov. 22:9) and tithing to His Church
“Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. ‘Test me in this,’ says the Lord Almighty, ‘and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of Heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it'” -Malachi 3:10.
(*Note: This is the only place in the Bible where God asks us to “test Him” — and it’s with our finances!)
