Money is gaining a foothold in the hearts of Americans. Yes this green piece of paper is highly influencing worship these days even in the church. You know it is soo sad that money is making people either kill themselves, kill other people, or either take a bribe just to get things. And we know the Lord has warned us about money. We know that the Lord Jesus said that money will not last forever . As the word of God says in Proverbs 23:5- Will you set your eyes on that which is not? For riches certainly make themselves wings; They fly away like an eagle toward heaven. We also know that the Lord Jesus says trusting in money is a snare for your soul. As the word of God says in 1 Timothy 6:9- But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare,into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. I mean you guys look at what happen to the rich young ruler in the word of God. He lost out on eternal life , just because he had great possession. As the word of God says in Matthew 19:21- Jesus said to him, " If you want to be perfect, go, sell what you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven; and come, follow Me." and Matthew 19:22- But when the young man heard that saying, he went away sorrowful, for he had great possessions. We also know that the Lord Jesus also told us that it is very hard to get into the kingdom of God because of the love of money. As the word of God says in Matthew 19:23- Then Jesus said to His disciples," Assuredly, I say to you that it is hard for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven. We also know that money can be rooted in our hearts when we think that it makes us complete and that way it makes it an idol in our heart , and look at money as the source of happiness.As the word of God says in Ezekiel 14:3 - " Son of man,these men have set up their idols in their hearts, and put before them that which causes them to stumble into iniquity. Should I let Myself be inquired of at all by them? And we also see through the verse that it can separate us from God. And my friends we don't want to be separate from God. Because remember God knows what is in our hearts. And plus that robs of us of God's greatest commandment. As the word of God says in Matthew 22:37- Jesus said to him, " You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. So how can we love God, when chasing the money. God's word cannot produce life when your heart is crowded with this garbage. As the word of God says in Mark 4:19- and the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches, and the desires for other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful. We also know that some ministers make up the get rich gospel. As the word of God says in 1 Timothy 6:3- If anyone teaches otherwise and does not consent to wholesome words, even the words of our Lord Jesus Christ, and to the doctrine which accords with godliness. and 1 Timothy 6:5- useless wranglings of men of corrupt minds and destitute of the truth, who suppose that godliness is a means of gain. From such withdraw yourself. Um the gospel is not about temporary things, and not about feeding your flesh. So when you feel the pressure of the money god. I will suggest you tell you know God that you have a problem and that you repent and that you want to be deliver from the love of money and that you place your trust in God about that he will supply your needs according to his riches and glory. And that while you wait for God to come through you will be content with what you have.As the word of God says in Philippians 4:19-And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. and Hebrews 13:5- Let your conduct be without covetousness, be content with such things as you have. I hope this help remove this obstacle out your life and for others who you can pray for as well.God bless you
