As I was eating lunch, I prayed my heart out to Jesus asking him to forgive me of all my stupidity with debt and to free me from its bondage. I confessed how I have faith that he can do something big in a big way! I feel strongly in my heart that Jesus is going to do something big to get all that debt paid off simply because he loves me and I can find numerous scriptures to prove he wants me to live in freedom! Faith being the biggest key of security because doubt always robs us, but doubt can’t get through the door if faith has it secured. See God is always bigger, stronger, and greater than anything the devil can wrap around us! Do I hear a Romans 8:37 thrown in about being more than conquerors through him who loved us? And what about that being “more” than a conqueror part? So yup, that debt snake is going to be vanished and my life restored even better than it was before all the debt! I truly believe what God’s word says about all hard work bringing a profit (though my business ventures over the past few years have turned up negative income) and that God has clearly written a bunch about being my healer, my deliver, my restorer, and more. Now it might sound foolish to the world to believe God can move miraculous and pay my heavy load. However, if Bill Gates was to stand on live national television and proclaim he had selected to pay off all my student loans out of compassion and grace from a story he heard about me if I would simply meet him at a certain time and place to receive the gift, it would start to look a lot less foolish to the world. It suddenly would not be so foolish to the world because of who he was and the fact he had given his word on national television. Well, it would be foolish of me to say, well, you know, I don’t think he can help me because my debts are so big! So I start to doubt Bill Gates has the ability to pay off my student loans. It would be foolish of me to say, well, you know, I don’t believe it is true, even though he said it on live national television! There is that doubt stealing my blessing and keeping me from acting out in faith. Yet, sometimes I am guilty of doubting that God can take care of my debts even though He is God, he has it written and has spoken to my heart numerous times. All I need to do is keep walking in faith and not turn to the road of doubt that can lead to despair, bad decisions, and even rebellion. God is more than able to free me from that larger than anaconda size snake I have tangled my life up in. I might have made the bad decisions, but I have turned away from using debt foolishly. Good thing Jesus is merciful and desires for us to live a life of freedom and abundant joy. Jesus is able to free you and me from any bondage we have ensnared ourselves in by bad decisions, if we will simply step out in faith and trust Him.

Thank you for sharing. I have been struggling with doubt. Instead of going that path. I will get deeper into God's Word. God bless you!
I have my days of struggle with doubt too and just keep reminding myself of who God is. Glad it was a blessing to you! 🙂
