Owe no one anything, except to love each other, for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law (Romans 13:8). In everything, then, do to others as you would have them do to you. For this is the essence of the Law and the prophets (Matthew 7:12). By this the children of God and the children of the devil can be distinguished: Anyone who does not practice righteousness is not of God, nor is anyone who does not love his brother (1 John 3:10).
As Christians we should strive to be debt free, because debt is often an exposure of our lack of satisfaction in Christ and over dependence on the things of this world to provide pleasure. God holds our relationships in high-esteem. Over and above things. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes (Matthew 6:25)?
God has promised to provide for our needs without a requirement of worry. He told His disciples that if they speak and believe, what they say, it shall happen as they have said it. Have faith in God! When you waver in faith this can anger God and he will curse your prayer. The devil is also able to intercept faithless prayers as well. Most prayers get intercepted because Christians don’t believe what they say. Also, ask the Lord to give you the ability to see the diverse ways that He chooses to answer it.
When you don’t acknowledge your debt problem, it is sin. This type of sin will limit areas in your life, when you decide to operate in God. It is important to note that God does not give suggestions, but commands. When he tells us to do something it is in our best interest to do it.
This is not a call to stress over debt already acquired, but an awakening to God’s ability to set you free, when you acknowledge him in this area of your life. As Christians we live for him and should acknowledge him in everything that we do. Let’s never forget that the way that leads to life is narrow and few find it. Let’s watch or have our house broken through.
