One truism the student of metaphysics learns is that whatever you believe to be true for another, you open yourself up to having a similar experience. Humans live out what they believe. So, if you don’t want to have the experience, it’s paramount that you do not accept the possibility.
And one area of economic error that needs to be vigorously defended against these days is the temptation to accept bankruptcy as inevitable and even desirable.
Bankruptcy has been acting like a contagious disease in recent years, spreading throughout the economy from person to person with a seemingly uncontrollable appetite. The news accounts of people going underwater with their mortgages and filing for bankruptcy are so numerous and prolific, that after a while, they have a numbing effect on the population, and mortal mind would win the day by causing people to believe it might happen to them; that times are tough, and it’s what happens.
But this type of reasoning is no different than a contagious disease running through town with the newspaper advertising it, suggesting that anyone and everyone is liable to get it. This, of course, is not true, and can be proven untrue if one’s thought is vigorously protected from accepting the temptation.
To remain safe, we all need to defend our financial security from the temptation to believe bankruptcy or other economic calamities are inevitable or a part of life. The sooner the better! Don’t wait until your feet start to sink.
God’s riches abound and they meet all human needs. They are ever-present, overflowing, adequate to the demand of the moment, and abundantly bestowed on all of creation. They are spiritual—wisdom, intelligent action, wise choices, diligent pursuit, economy, and all the other qualities of Mind that contribute to sound financial planning. Each of us, as a child of God, is naturally endowed with the intelligence and wisdom that leads to wise choices that produce positive outcomes.
Claim your inheritance! Know beyond a doubt how rich and wealthy you are as a beloved, cared for, and watched over child of God. And act like it!
Poverty and lack are not endowed into our being.
God reminds us, as recorded in Proverbs:
“I love them that love me; and those that seek me early shall find me. Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment: That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.”
Don’t believe in bankruptcy any more than you would believe in a disease. God’s good never ends or runs out. It’s forever, and it’s yours. Live in confidence every day.
