Examine your debt situation and identify the root cause of debt

Attacking the Root Cause of Debt
by Kristi LaMontagne

Debt is the silent thief that comes upon us so quietly that we are unaware of its presence until suddenly there is more month than money! We are then forced to wake up and change our paradigm in order to be free from the bondages of debt. God’s Word says that we are not to be condemned for being in debt (Romans 8:1) because when we repent, or change our ways by receiving Him as our Savior, He will forgive us and give us a fresh start!( John 1:9)

After examining your debt situation, you will discover one or more of the root causes by asking the following questions:

  • Do you have other gods (even money) over the one true God? (Deut. 5:6-10)
  • Have you been involved in witchcraft? ( Deut. 18:9-13)
  • Do you pay your tithe on your gross income? (Mal. 3:7-10)
  • Do you have known sin in your life? (John 1:9)
  • Do you honor your parents? (Deut. 5:16)
  • Do you hold unforgiveness towards anyone? (Mark 11:25, Romans 13:8)
  • General strongholds? (2 Cor. 10:4-5)
  • Sexual sin? (Prov. 5:3-14)
  • Generational Curses?

These strongholds and/or curses block God’s blessings which he intends for our lives, and they must be confessed and removed. By seeking the Lord’s forgiveness and being sensitive to His Holy Spirit, we will receive the Lord’s guidance which will ultimately help us break free from the shackles of debt. (John 8:36) When we renounce the sin or bondage that holds us captive, repent (turn away from our sin), and ask God to restore us to His freedom, we can rejoice that He will give us a road map to get out of debt and receive the His good promises given in Mal. 3: 10-11!

To learn more about spiritual warfare and how to attack strongholds, curses and other blockages, and how to get free of the consequences of judging others, refer to Chapter 9 in the Bible-based workbook Financial Freedom in 7 Weeks Plus.
