“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon” Matthew 6:24, KJV.
Don’t make your decisions or go in a certain direction because of the money, but because it’s God’s will. Mammon will have you miss the will of God. I wouldn’t be writing if I chose the money. I wouldn’t be advancing the kingdom if I chose mammon.
Mammon in the Greek means wealth and the gain of it is the basis this world system operates by. According to mammon, wealth is the key to your happiness and self-worth, therefore, live for it. Pursue it. Mammon says let money and material possessions be the sun in your life, and all that you are revolves around them. Serve and worship me, not God.
We can’t serve two masters. Either you will love and embrace the one, and hate and despise the other. The devil through mammon will always permanently promise what it only temporarily delivers, and ultimately leaves you empty and unhappy.
Choose to love and embrace the Lord and His ways in your life. No matter how your finances look, remain strong and hold fast to seeking His kingdom and righteousness first, knowing the Father keeps His promises. Continue to do God’s will with your money, Who will bless and prosper you. You will be happy when you choose God, and He financially increased you without having to compromise Who you serve.
Prayer: Father, thank You for revealing to me the truth about mammon. Examine my heart and if I’m serving it. I repent and choose to serve You. My life will revolve around the Son. I reject mammon and my happiness will not be based on money and things, but on You and Your will for me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
