TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL MESSAGE

St. Michael – God Is Bringing Your Key to Victory Now

My dearest one, did you think that the Lord who created you with love and sacrificed His only son for your sake would not deliver you from all struggles and oppression? Today is the opportune moment when the Lord is delivering the key to your victory.

In the quiet moments when the weight of life’s burdens presses upon your shoulders, when the chase for wealth and success feels as though it will never end, remember this: God sees your efforts, your struggles, and your desires. He has a plan that has been carefully woven into the fabric of your life, destined to bring you to a place of peace and stability.

For whoever is begotten by God conquers the world. And the victory that conquers the world is our faith.

God Desires Your Financial Freedom

People often equate wealth and financial freedom with success. Money in itself is not an evil, and the accumulation of wealth is not a sin. In fact, God wants you to thrive and live your life in abundance.

Financial freedom is a principal that has been touched upon in the bible. Whilst Christ and his disciples where not “rich” in the common financial standards of the word, they were financially free – meaning that they did not want for more and had enough to live impactful lives for the glory of God. The ultimate goal is to be free from the worries of bills, payments, loans and all other cumbersome financial instruments that bog you down in your life.

God desires for you to no longer be dependent on physical wealth, and with His divine hand of providence He shall provide you with all that you need to sustain you. In doing so you shall be able to rise above these earthly needs and instead work to enact the will of God more closely in your life.

“For where your treasure is, there also will your heart be.” – Matthew 6:21

The treasures of your heart – be it family, well-being, or financial security – are known to Him. God understands your drive for financial freedom, not just for the luxury it might bring, but for the peace and stability it can offer.

Seeking Fulfillment in Wealth Accumulation

It’s a feeling many are familiar with: the yearning for money and treasures of the world. The relentless pursuit of material riches, unchecked by spiritual discernment, can lead us astray. No matter how much money we acquire, there often follows with an insatiable hunger for more. This is not merely an ambition to become richer, but a void that can’t be filled by material means alone.

Have you heard stories of how rich people lived in luxury but still often feel so alone and profoundly isolated? Even after the incredible feat of acquiring all that wealth, they ultimately question the purpose behind such pursuit and harbor great feeling of unfulfillment in their lives.

Perhaps there is a treasure that they have been missing all this time. One that has been there hidden in plain sight all along, waiting for them to accept with arms outstretched…

Understanding the True Value of Money

The value of money is relative based on who you are speaking to. To a rich man, a thousand dollars seems a trifle matter but to the family struggling to pay rent on time this month, it could mean having a roof over their heads.

The Bible tells us, “Whoever loves money never has enough; whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income” (Ecclesiastes 5:10). The true value of money is not in its quantity but in our perception and utilization of it.

Recall the parable of the widow’s offering, where Jesus observes rich people giving large amounts to the temple treasury. However, it was the widow who put in two very small copper coins, worth only a few cents, that caught His eye. He said, “Truly I tell you, this poor widow has put more into the treasury than all the others. They all gave out of their wealth; but she, out of her poverty, put in everything—all she had to live on” (Mark 12:43-44).

In this, we’re reminded that it’s not about the amount but the heart behind the giving. Squandering wealth without discernment or gratitude can rob us of understanding the effort behind each earning and the potential blessing it can bestow upon others.

Seek Wealth That Glorifies the Lord

In your relentless pursuit, do not lose sight of the one who provides all. Wealth is not a bad thing, but we must always remember that it is merely a means to an end. Remember that with Him, success is not just an aspiration, but a divine promise. Your journey towards financial freedom should be a testament to your faith and dedication.

Stay true, keep faith, and know that God is working tirelessly, aligning the cosmos in your favor. When you least expect it, He will present the key to your victory.

Stand tall, warrior of faith. Your moment of victory is now. God is with you, today and always.
