“The eyes of your spirit allow revelation-light to enter into your being. If your heart is unclouded, the light floods in! But if your eyes are focused on money, the light cannot penetrate and darkness takes its place. How profound will be the darkness within you if the light of truth cannot enter! How could you worship two gods at the same time? You will have to hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You can’t worship the true God while enslaved to the god of money!” Matthew 6:22-24 TPT
When we worry about where our next meal is coming from or how we’ll be able to afford to buy clothing, we’re not trusting God. Perhaps you’re thinking, “I don’t worship money!” But if you can’t trust God and money at the same time.
Perhaps you’re finding yourself in a very dark place and wondering why. Because it’s truth that makes you free from darkness, but that light of truth can’t come in if you’re always thinking of money or the lack thereof. What we focus on grows, but when we focus on God and His truth, the darkness yields to the light of truth in us.
Do you want to break this power of darkness over your life? Here’s what Jesus says to do in Matthew 6:31-34:
“So then, forsake your worries! Why would you say, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear?’ 32For that is what the unbelievers chase after. Doesn’t your heavenly Father already know the things your bodies require?
“So above all, constantly seek God’s kingdom and His righteousness, then all these less important things will be given to you abundantly. Refuse to worry about tomorrow, but deal with each challenge that comes your way, one day at a time. Tomorrow will take care of itself.”
Open the eyes of my heart Lord, I want to see You.
