Nine Steps to Fiancial Freedom, Part 9

We are continuing with the Nine Steps to Financial Freedom, to answer the questions: How can we achieve financial freedom? What must we do, according to God's plan?

Remember that In Step 1, we learned the first thing that we must do is as Christians is to Transfer Ownership of every possession to God.

In Step 2, we learned that we must Become Debt-Free.
In Step 3, we learned that we must Establish the Tithe.
In Step 4, we learned that we must Accept God's Provision.
In Step 5, we learned that we must Keep a Clear Conscience.
In Step 6, we learned that we must Put Others First.
In Step 7, we learned that we must Limit Time Involvement.
In Step 8, we learned that we must Avoid Indulgences.

Step 9: Getting Christian Counseling

To achieve financial freedom, every Christian should get Christian counseling.

It is important to seek good Christian counseling. "Without consultation, plans are frustrated, but with many counselors they succeed." (Proverbs 15:22). God admonishes us to seek counsel and not to rely solely on our own resources. Many Christians become frustrated in financial planning because they lack the necessary knowledge, and then give up. God has supplied others with the ability to help in the area of finances. Seek Christian counselors.

We must realize that we can't reach financial freedom without God's help, and that must be humble and seek the wise counsel of God in prayer.

I leave you with God's Word from Hebrews 11:6, and Matthew 7:7

"God rewards them that diligently seek him" (Heb.11:6)
"Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened. Or what man is there among you who, if his son asks for bread, will give him a stone? Or if he asks for a fish, will he give him a serpent? If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good things to those who ask Him!" Matthew 7:7-11
