Wisdom For Solving Financial Problems

James 1:5 “If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives to all men generously and without reproaching, and it will be given him.”

[…]

A challenge in wisdom; find a quiet place and provide yourself with a minimum of two hours. During these two hours, bring only a pen and a notepad. Ask your family not to disturb you during this exercise. Begin by asking God for wisdom. Next, make a list of your financial problems. Go ahead, keep listing them even if it takes several pages to do so. Lastly, look over your list of “problems” and prioritize them. You might do this by making a new list and numbering them from most important to least important. An alternative would be to give each problem a rating such as “L” for low, “M” for medium, and “H” for high.

You should have at least sixty to ninety minutes left to “brainstorm.” Start by placing each one of your high priority problems at the top of a separate sheet of paper. Now, sit quietly and truly seek answers from God.

As solutions come to mind, write them down on the sheet of paper corresponding to that problem. Don’t question, don’t think of all of the reasons that a given idea won’t work, just write them down.

After you have completed this exercise, you will have dozens if not hundreds of solutions to your most urgent problems. Repeat this exercise often, taking time to deal with your medium and low level issues before they move up in the ranking. This approach also works well for any problem, financial or otherwise.

What is wonderful about this method is that we are literally giving God our problems, asking for His wisdom, and then offering a blank pad of paper for His solutions. Why don’t we just stop our busy lives and ask God for His wisdom and guidance? God is waiting right now for you to ask.

Prayer & Finances

First hour guest, author James Paris discussed how to use prayer to improve finances. A millionaire by the age of 30, he was bankrupted by his fortieth birthday, after his accountant/brother embezzled his fortune. This turn of fate led him to discover a different approach to prayer– instead of asking God for what he wanted to happen (which proved ineffective), he started asking God what he wanted him to do. “When I realized prayer was a two-way conversation,” he recounted, “I would find myself on the beach with a yellow pad and a pen…and I would come back from these two and three hour prayer sessions with pages and pages of ideas, information, and direction that I would never come up with on my own.”
