Deuteronomy 15:6

You Will Lend and Not Borrow

Transcript

Deuteronomy 15:6 for the Lord your God will bless you as He has promised you and you will lend to many nations but you will not borrow and you will rule over many nations but they will not rule over you this is awesome the word of God says that you are to rule over others they will not rule over you and you are to be a lender and not a borrower you know what I’ve discovered many many people do not realize that borrowing is a choice I’ve had a lot of people that feel like they’re just a victim somehow to the circumstances and that’s why they’re in big debt in reality borrowing money is a choice nobody puts a gun to your head and forces you to borrow and we read in this scripture that the principle is that God, Yahweh said to Israel you will lend to many nations but you will not borrow I was impressed many many years ago when a friend of mine Earl Pitts shared with me about a Jewish accountant that he went to visit he was just doing his taxes when he finished he said could I ask you a personal question and he asked his accountant do you have both Jewish and Christian clients and the accountant said sure I have clients of all different faiths he said tell me honestly who prospers more your Jewish clients or your Christian ones and the account sort of laughed he said well my Jewish clients of course probably 10 to 1 Earl, my friend, asked him personally why do you think that is and he said well, he picked up Earl’s Christian bible which Earl had with him and he said, you know I think it’s sort of like this you Christians tend to live out of the back of this book we Jews tend to live out of the front of this book and unfortunately for you guys all the financial principles are in proverbs Leviticus, Deuteronomy they’re all in the front of the book the part that you seem to ignore and you know it’s true Jewish people tend to lend while many Christians tend to borrow and somehow we didn’t get the same memo in our family that many Jewish people did that this principle that’s right here let me read it again you will not borrow you will lend now what’s hard to understand you will not borrow you will lend you will not borrow I believe that’s a principle that God wants us to walk in you may be in a lot of debt today I don’t say this to discourage you I lived with debt most of my adult life we always had a mortgage on a house many times we borrowed money for a car but back in year 2000 God gave us a revelation it’s a choice we don’t have to continue in debt we just vehemently dug our heels in and said God we determine to get out of debt we don’t know how you’re going to do it and it looked like it would take more than 10 years but when we made a determination we’re going to do what we know to do naturally God did supernatural things we eliminated all of our debt including our house mortgage in 3 years I don’t believe God is a respecter of persons I believe he will do similar things for you the reason you’re watching this today is because God has a plan for you I have two adult sons they’re grown and as of today my oldest son has a house he didn’t go to a bank and borrow money on it he owns his house my youngest son will buy a house in the near future they’re both married and he won’t go to a bank to borrow money for his house and many people say how is that possible I’ll tell you how it’s possible because is says right here and you will lend to many nations but you will not borrow we made a determination in our family and God gave us a plan and we began to just implement the plan that God gave us as a matter of fact I did a little DVD series on this called the Good Plan G.O.O.D Get Out Of Debt where I talked a lot more about this talked about this in a couple of the books that I’ve written on finances as well the critical thing is to recognize God’s intent is for us to lend and not to borrow and I believe there’s a spirit of mammon that captures people and deceives people where people are willing to pay two or three times the value of something to have it today on credit rather than to accumulate the money and then to buy something for it’s true value this is a powerful powerful principle I’d just like to pray for you if you’re in debt today I’d like to pray specifically that God will do for you pour out His grace upon you to give you His plan to eliminate 100% of your debt that you might do what this says be a borrower Pardon me not be a borrower be a lender you see that spirit of mammon tried to confuse me right there to say it wrong Father I pray right now for each person watching today God I pray for your grace to be poured out on us that we would know what is your plan Father what are the natural things you want me to do today to begin to eliminate my debt and Father I pray for supernatural power supernatural plan and Father right now I pray to break the power of debt in the mighty name of Yeshua HaMashiach Father that every person watching me today might have a plan to walk free of debt and a supernatural outpouring of your grace to carry it out in the mighty name of Yeshua Amen
