Money in 2016

Money plays an important role in the lives of every human being. The importance of money cannot be overemphasized. Without money, man will not be able to enjoy the basic things of life like food, shelter and clothing. Now, the question is what is money? Is money currency? As you begin the New Year, it is important to note that money is not necessarily currency. 

What is Currency?

Currency is a form of money. For example if you look at the face of pound sterling note of any denomination, you will read "I promise to pay the bearer on demand the sum of £5, £10, £20 and £50".  The note is therefore not actual money but a Promissory note.  Money is invisible and is an intangible thing, a mind concept.

In Genesis 25:29-34 we see that Esau sold his birth right to his brother Jacob for a single meal.  Esau did not understand the value of his birth right and placed more value on the tangible rather than the intangible. A birth right is invisible and cannot be seen. The value of Esau's birth right is quantified to an extent when Isaac before he died called his son Esau to bless him. 

No human being was born poor; they became poor. God did not create a poor man whether born again or not; Adam was not born again yet He was not poor.  We need to understand that poverty is not the absence of cash (money).
Poverty is a mindset created by man. You don't need physical cash to live a comfortable life.  

In Genesis we see that when God wanted to create the earth, he did not spend money but he "spoke" creation in to being. Your word is your cash/currency and as a child of God it is the greatest form of money you can possess.

In Acts 3 we read that Peter and John went to the temple to pray and they found a lame man at the gate called Beautiful who they gave the word, "silver or gold I do not have but what I have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk". The word of God was of more value to the man because it changed his life whereas silver or gold would have run out and his situation would be unchanged.

Money is not limited to cash. The words that you speak produce for you whatever you desire. Do not limit yourself to pounds and pence otherwise you will be limited to the world's economies. 

Certain riches are quantified in real estate, intellectual property and the like. Banking and cash systems are operated by man and you do not have any control over them. 
Therefore reliance on them is not wise. Instead, you should put your trust in the word of God. Never let anyone determine how far you go in life; your employers, the government, politicians etc. We have already established that the economy is set to restrict people's wealth growing therefore the world economy is unreliable.
