I want to talk to you today about money. Money is a treasure from God that I give you to use for my name's honor and glory. It is not to be used for self-aggrandizement and squandering for things that are not necessary. Now, I do not mean that you should become miserly, and so focused upon every penny that you become out of balance and lose your focus upon me and our connection of love and unity. I do not want you to become fearful that I might be disapproving of how you have spent your money in the past. But what I do want is for you to see your money as a gift from me to use for the needs of yourself and your family, and for the needs of the church and others as I direct.
Money is a sacred trust from me, and therefore, I would like to be involved in your expenditures to guide you in how to use it. I already know what your needs are, and what they will be in the future, and I can guide you safely through each day in your expenditures. As you know, the tithes and offerings come first as you make out your budget. But your remaining funds are dedicated to me as well in the sense that I want to be involved in how you spend the rest of your money. It is the same as time. You only have 24 hours a day, and it can be squandered or used wisely, and the more you depend upon my guidance in the use of your time, money, and even physical energy, the more I can pour out my blessings of eternal life that begin even here, when you are in constant connection with me and under my guidance. So before you spend the 80%* of your budget which is left after tithe and offerings, be sure you consult me to help you. When you have dedicated your money to me, I will help you to have everything you need.
Now go to the activities of your day, but just keep in connection with me throughout the day to advise you on the use of your time, energy, and money, and you will find that you will have enough for your own needs and the needs of others as I guide you through the day. If you are following my guidance, you will have the resources of heaven to draw from. When you are connected with me, I will give you wisdom and guidance to supply all your needs for each day. This is the reward of having a loving, trust relationship with me, for I will never leave you to the assaults of the enemy.
But beware of consulting only your own impressions about the use of your time, energy, and money, for the devil will lead you to squander it all for selfish purposes, or for chasing his rabbits until you have exhausted your supplies. But even if you have done this, come to me and I will lead you in paths of deliverance, and provide a way of escape, recovery, and healing for you, for when you are attached to me you are attaching to the endless resources of heaven. Lovingly, Jesus.
(*Or whatever the Lord impresses you to give for tithes and offerings.)
