Day 2 is about the Promise of Prosperity. We want God to bless us with wealth but we are not willing to submit to change. Our finances are the foundation of which everything is based on. Sometimes we are so busy chasing money that we don’t even realize we are running further away from GOD and His Will. This day examines commandments that we have broken in regards to our finances. Below are some of my offenses:
You shall not make for yourself or things an idol.
I have made an idol out of clothes and concert tickets. Sometimes I wouldn’t give offering just to ensure that I got those front row tickets or the latest outfit.
Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy.
I have chosen to work on the Sabbath in order to make some extra money.
You shall not murder.
I have said that “I will kill for a pair of Christian Louboutins or Prada shoes. Words have Power!! Use them wisely!!
You shall not covet your neighbor’s house.
There have been times where I social media stalked (Yes, I am woman enough to say it!) someone just to see their latest purchase (In my defense, there person was materialistic and posted everything they ever bought!) I know…. I know… That still doesn’t make it right. I’m a work in progress.
Day 2: SUCCESS! I redeemed my Christmas gift from co-worker and got a FREE LUNCH! Therefore, I didn’t have to buy anything. It’s the little things in life. However, I got an email from Nordstrom’s that the shoes that I waitlisted are in stock…. Le Sigh!!
Pray for my strength!
