If we are to wage war on debt, we first have to understand the enemy: who and what is the real enemy? Is it the debt, the bank, or yourself because someone said you're an 'over-spender' or 'can't be trusted' with money? More importantly however, is HOW you can immediately - yes, immediately, lift the burden of debt to live financially free in Christ Jesus, wherever you're starting from today!
What is the connection between faith, hope and love as it related to debt, credit and finding and fulfilling God's purposes for your life? In this week on Faith for Finances, we'll look at hope, ...not in the sense of an optimistic outlook or wishful thinking without a firm foundation, but in the sense of a CONFIDENT EXPECTATION based on SOLID CERTAINTY. Biblical hope rests on God's promises, particularly those pertaining to Christ's return.
Too many people think finance is about money and math. A bit, perhaps, but nothing more complicated than you learn in elementary school will get you a good solid foundation for building sustainable and increasing financial freedom for your family and future generations. What and when to add and subtract so you can multiply blessings and divide and conquer the burdens of debts is the subject of this episode of Faith for Finances.
What do you do when God gives you a great idea? A big vision? A purpose to do something that will glorify Him, and bring many into salvation? What do you do when the fulfillment of the vision is beyond what you reach at the time? In this episode our guest, Meri Crouley - a dynamic speaker who operates with a strong prophetic gifting, hosts her own TV show, is developing several major motion pictures and is passionate about seeing millions enter the Kingdom. Watch as her and our host Sam dive into the topic of fulfilling a God-given dream.
On this episode, Sam and her husband Joe share some the realities of living with a dream and a purpose that in the natural would seem impossible. They share how one of the most difficult parts of pursing their dream to buy a home - without good credit, with no money down, new self-employment income, and how they would be able to purchase in desirable neighbourhood in a hot real estate market. They learned they needed to talk about their goals.
If you have a career, a nice home, a family and a future that looks fairly comfortable, but God starts pulling at your heart for missions, what do you do? There are plenty of reasons to defer the nudges or deny them. Our guests on this episode did not deny those nudges. They stepped out into worldwide missions and have lived powerful, surrendered, strong and humble lives walking together with God. They have travelled the world seeking the Lord for his vision, and have a strong call to help equip the Church for the end time harvest, including evangelism and discipleship. Their desire for ministry and to give God all the glory is an inspiring story you won't want to miss.
When God calls you to something by small promptings, or a big 'aha' moment, He has a purpose. On this second part episode our guests left a comfortable, relatively predictable lifestyle to follow God's call into missions. The result is beyond measure in terms of lives impacted. They share with us some of the miracles that have taken place in their lives.
Money and Sex are two of the highest stress issues in marriage. Kids and family can also be highly charged topics. Sam's guests this week are long time pastors and marriage counsellors. They are going to share stories, symptoms, and strategies for healthy marriages that aren't divided through finances, but are united to function in oneness with each other with God as their focus.
Our legal system and our financial system are structures to protect individuals. The Kingdom of God focuses on community. What happens when you want to undertake a 'Kingdom Project' in a world designed for 'independence'? Sam's guest is a lawyer who has served in missions around the world, and whose business and estate planning practice has given him some key insights on helping people plan collaboratively with a Kingdom perspective, in order to implement systems that benefit everyone involved.
