In an everchanging world, it is very important for us to have all of our finances in order. The Bible tells us that we are the light of the world, so as light, we are placed in this Earth to be a blessing to others. But how can we be a blessing to others when we can barely get by?
Being prosperous is not only a blessing to us, but it should be a requirement for all of us. This world moves with money and if we really want to make an impact in this world then, we should play by its rules.
Sure you can pray and donate your time and that is a wonderful way to bless others. Wouldn’t it be awesome to bless someone by helping them pay for their hospital bills? How about helping to build a school overseas? What about helping missionaries to spread The Word of God around the world?
It’s not about us
Let me paint a picture for you here: imagine a beautiful lake, with the nice calm water and the little animals that live there. Now imagine a river, flowing downstream with animals on its banks drinking from it.
People from around the area coming to get water from the river. As the river flows, it keeps bringing water to more and more places and more people and more animals benefit from it.
We have a choice to either be a lake or a river. A lake stays still and keeps all the water to itself and its animals. This could be you, keeping your wealth to yourself in order to bless your loved ones only.
A river flows and it spreads and it brings the water wherever it goes. This could be you too, spreading the blessing wherever you go. You can’t be both, you have to be one or the other.
As children of God we are called to be rivers, if God can get it through you, He will get it to you. It is God’s will for us to prosper so we can be rivers. Being financially blessed is not about us, sure we will benefit from it, but it is about the good we can do with what God is giving us.
Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.
3 John 1:2
I hope you see the importance of knowing the #1 secret to getting our financial house in order. This secret will put you ahead and not behind, all you have to do is follow it and it will bless your socks off.
The secret comes from The One who knows it all and who owns it all. Sure, you can listen to Dave Ramsey and Billy Epperhart and other amazing people that know very well the world of money and how it works. Wouldn’t you rather get the #1 secret from God?
So, here it is: the #1 secret to get your financial house in order is to get understanding, to get knowledge, to learn, and invest in yourself. The entrepreneur, Billy Epperhart always say “you don’t know, what you don’t know” and that is very true.
The Lord tells us that His people die for the lack of knowledge. Don’t be one of those!
Learning is the only way you are going to be able to get ahead. What do you need? Do you need a budget? Learn how to do a budget. Would you like to invest and see your money grow? Learn how to invest, buy books, get CDs, watch youtube videos, read blogs!
Do whatever you need to do to get the knowledge that you need in order to succeed financially.
Find people that are a blessing and learn from them. As a mention before, Billy Epperhart is one of my favorite teachers about finances. He has a great book called Money Mastery, in that book he will teach you spiritual and practical tips to become the master of your money.
Don’t be afraid to invest in yourself. Find out what you need and go after it.
The #1 secret to get your financial house in order is knowledge. Get the knowledge and you will be able to handle whatever situation that comes your way. You will be able to put yourself and your family in a position where you can bless others and at the same time, this will bring greater blessing to your life.

We are blessed to be a blessing. Thanks for the reminder.
