09.17.17 | Finding Peace in Your Finances

Bill Shaking Hands

In Sunday’s sermon, we observed that finances can be one of the greatest stressors in our lives. We considered two lessons on the subject from Jesus’ “Parable of the Talents” (Matthew 25):

  1. Remember who God is — not harsh, judgmental, or demanding. Rather, God is generous and forgiving. God is a God of abundance.
  2. Remember who you are – you are a steward of the abundant resources of God.

When you feel the anxiety of financial stress, try this exercise: first, acknowledge to God your anxiety. Pray, “Lord, I am feeling vulnerable right now. Grant me strength and courage for the facing of this time.” Then, second, offer gratitude for something specific in your life: “Lord, I give you thanks for ___.” You will find your prayers of confession and gratitude will transform your anxiety into peace.
