God blesses the work of our hands. The Bible tells us this multiple times, and in both the Old and New Testaments. The Bible also tells us the reason for this blessing on our work. It frees us from the slavery of debt. In fact, God even promises that we will lend money to others instead of borrowing it from them. If you choose not to work then you completely miss out on this blessing. Even if you can't do the same work you did in your past, you can still work. Remember, volunteering is still work. Everyone can do something that blesses others. And if borrowing money, either on your credit cards or through bank loans, is your default solution to financial pressure, then you are caught up in the world's mammon system. God's Kingdom has a better way where God blesses the work you do so that you can lend to others instead of borrowing money. Ask God today to show you what you can do, or do differently, so you can begin to receive this promised blessing of God.
The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.— Deuteronomy 28:12 (NKJV)
