20 Bible Verses About Our Finances and Business
Today we will be dealing with 20 bible verses about our finances and business.
As christians God does not want us to be poor. From what we must have heard from our bible study it was said that Jesus once said” In my Father’s house there are many mansions” also ” our Lord Jesus Christ is full of riches and glory”. The statement above shows that our Jesus is not poor. God is our Father. So if our Father in Heaven is full of riches and glory, therefore His children are also meant to be rich and prosperous.
Today’s topic is to give us hope that our business is in God’s hands and He will surely make ways for us . All we need to do is to worship God wholeheartedly and be spirit filled and God will answer our prayers to bless our businesses and increase our finances. God already promised to make lines fall in pleasant places for us so we should hold on to our faith and believe that God will bless everything we lay our hands on . As long as we obey God and follow His words, there’s no need to be worried about anything whatsoever as Jesus Christ is our hope of glory.
