It is mean, nasty and down right devastating, causing families to just leave their homes to escape the high mortgages. The elderly have been forced to move in with their kids and even vice-verse. It has caused many to lose their once “dream jobs,” the employment opportunity that many could only dream about. It has caused divorce to be on the rise. More than 1⁄2 of the American families have ended in divorce. It has strangled the life out of good marriages. Kids being forced to join the military simply because they can’t afford to go to college nor can they find work.
It’s time for the “Baby Boomers” to retire and you guessed it, they can’t because their 401K plans, stocks and bonds, and their other retirement plans have taken a turn for the worst. Many have made living in debt a way of life. It’s the norm. By now you have probably figured out whom or what I have been talking about IT’S THE SPIRIT OF DEBT. Living in debt is the way of the world, the more debt you have the more you can’t get. People often get so deep into debt during their working years that they can’t enjoy retirement because they are still paying creditors. Many have grown up with the concept that debt is a way of life and this cycle continues generation after generation.
The devil’s agenda is to keep you from prospering; he wants you to keep your nose to the ground stone. Debt is an oppressive and demonic spirit designed to keep you from fulfilling your dreams. In Genesis 12:13 God has called us to bless others until “all families of the earth be blessed.” If you are fed-up with living paycheck to paycheck, having more bills than you have money and juggling bills every month, then do I have great news for you. You can choose the world’s way or you can choose God’s way. God’s way is always BEST. The Word of God says “The blessing of the lord, it maketh rich, and he added no sorrow with it.” (Proverbs 10:22).
My prayer for you today is to TRUST GOD. We have to trust God for every decision we make. To be honest there have been times in my life when my trust has wavered. We all have been there and those are the times we have to make sure the phrase “Trust in God” isn’t just a cliché. It’s easy to place our confidence in Him when things are going well, but the acid test is trusting God even when we have to wait patiently for His direction especially in difficult times. I, Pastor D. Tyler, would personally like to take this time to invite you to come out and fellowship with the Double Portion Family, where we can come together and learn how to defeat and drive out LACK and DEBT. Do what’s necessary to get out of debt and stay out of debt. Avoid the things that got you in debt in the first place such as: overspending, frequent trips to the ATM, covetousness, greed, eating out everyday and trying to keep of with the Joneses or whosoever’s in your neighborhood.
