Recovering from Financial Disaster
There are times in life when negative things happen to us that are simply beyond our control. You may suffer through a serious illness, a divorce, the loss of your business, a natural disaster, or the death of a spouse— and any of these events can come without notice. Tragedies like these can have a detrimental effect on our finances, causing difficulties that can sometimes last for years.
So how do you recover from a financial disaster? What do you do when your whole world— including your money— comes crashing down around you? Here are some basic biblical principles we can apply to our financial lives in times of crisis that can help us to weather the storm and find financial freedom once again.
Principle #1: God loves you no matter what has happened. He will give you grace and wisdom to help rebuild your life.
Jeremiah 29:11: I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.
James 1:5: If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
