Do you know that as a christian,you have a right to financial breakthrough?
Many christians today are slaves to money.!I used to be for years.
In this blog post; however, I will show you how to get financial breakthrough as a christian.Being a slave to money,most times is not something we do conciously.
Infact, as you are reading this ,you might not even know that you might be a slave to money.
I want you to know today,that that is not Gods plan for us.
HOW DO YOU KNOW YOU DO NOT HAVE FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH?
Money is an abominable God,A terrible master but on the other hand a wonderful slave.80% of people in the world today are slaves to money.
That means if you are in that group, you do not yet have financial breakthrough.
What then are the signs to show your lark of financial breakthrough?
firstly,when you stress your self so hard to get it.
secondly when you do what you hate doing to get.Finally when you spend all your life running after it.
If you are doing these things,I am sorry to say ,you are a slave to money.
This statement is not to make you ashamed or angry.
Rather, I pray it will increase a desire in you to make money your slave.The question then now is:
HOW DO I GET FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH FROM GOD?
God in his mercy and love ,has given us instructions on how to get financial breakthrough.
It is left for us to find this instructions and practice it.One of the secrets to financial breakthrough in the bible,is to stop worrying.
Yeah I can hear you say that is easier said than done.
I understand you perfectly.I used to worry about my bills years ago.
But today ,I dont.
I learnt the practical ways to stop worrying.
It is not an easy process.But it is possible.
If it was not possible,the Lord will not tell us in Mathew 6 vs 25-34, 3 times not to worry.That is because worry drives you to stress yourself with all kinds of work.
So when God says “do not worry”,he knows that the end result of worry will be slavery.
Similarly,if you want to have financial breakthrough in you life,you need to start from there.
HOW DO YOU PRAY FOR FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH?
Never pray to God for money or finances.God does not rain down money.
On the other hand, He gives us the ability to get the money!
How then can you pray for financial breakthrough?We pray to God to bless us with this abilities.The first ability is to ask God to grant you te desire to lay up treasures in heaven.

FINANCIAL BREAKTHROUGH PRAYER POINTS
Please stop asking God for things.
To some people reading this,that is going to be a huge challenge.
Change your prayer points if you want to have financial breakthrough in your life.
James 4 vs 3 states that
3 When you ask, you do not receive, because you ask with wrong motives, that you may spend what you get on your pleasures.
This means that God is more interested in the intensions behind what you are asking for.
Your number one financial breakthrough prayer point,is to ask God to change your intensions.
secondly,ask God to open your eyes to your abilities(Deuteronomy 8 vs 18) ,and the wisdom to use these abilities to create wealth.
What are abilities? These are ideas ,skills,schemes,wisdom.
Remember Solomon the richest man in the bible.
Solomon never asked God for things.
Instead, he asked for wisdom.
