Constructing a solid financial foundation for your family

A Solid Financial Foundation For Your Family
by Joyce Shoemaker

3 John 2 (KJ) – “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

When people think of a foundation, they think of a thick slab of concrete which securely supports the steel girders and beams during the construction of a building. Before a sky scraper goes up, there is a timeframe of much activity down in the trenches of the foundation before the outline of a building emerges. The success of the building is largely determined by the time, effort and preparation of the foundation.

Building a solid financial foundation for your family is like the preparation of a concrete foundation for a building. Both require groundwork and accurate application of skills and techniques. It’s God’s Word that is the foundation for the building of our finances. It provides clear instructions for us on how to build a solid financial foundation. His Word will not return void when we speak, believe and act on it!

The following principles from God’s Word serve as invaluable biblical building blocks for financial victory.

  • Hope – Jeremiah 19:11 (NKJ) – “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” God’s Word promises a good plan for us. In 3 John 2 it clearly tells us that God means for His covenant people to prosper and be in health.
  • Conviction is good, but condemnation is evil – Romans 8:1 tells us that there is no condemnation to them who are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. Satan will try to heap shame and guilt on you to keep you from financial victory. Acknowledge that such condemnation is from the devil and refuse to accept any part of it.
  • God owns everything – “Everything in the heavens and the earth…” 1 Chronicles 29:11 “The cattle on a thousand hills,” which means all of the cattle and everything else, Psalm 50;10. (NKJ)

So begin your foundation with the Hope that God plans to prosper you and not to harm you. Add a layer of understanding that conviction is good and condemnation is not of the Spirit. Top off your foundation with the knowledge that God Owns Everything and we are required to be faithful stewards of the resources God entrusts to us.

Learn how to apply God’s wisdom to your own finances and you too can have a solid financial foundation built on God’s Word!
