God is not obligated to make you financially independent if you are not willing to deal wisely with what He has given you – and be accountable. Accountable stewardship must, therefore, be the heart desire of every Believer who craves to experience financial independence. Our physical and material prosperity depend to a large extent on our spiritual and emotional wellbeing. But even when we have developed a prosperous mentality (and know that God has empowered us to prosper), Satan would still try his best to cheat us out of God’s will, if we are not accountable and faithful in our use of it. We cannot live above a system we are ignorant of its workings. Ignorance has lead to many believers getting trapped by the Babylonian trivial gratification; which has led to many making a shipwreck of their faith and Godly testimony. Developing financial intelligence is therefore a MUST for all believers, especially as you operate in the Marketplace. Daniel was schooled in all the ways of Babylon. Joseph was schooled in all the ways of Egypt. Understanding the financial landmines and how to navigate them successfully is needed to exercise dominion in the marketplace. So this book discusses a lot of the practical financial instruments and system employed by the world economies to keep people under its control. We will also discuss solutions to demonstrate how you can win by righteousness. This book with worksheets included in some chapters, was written to help you understand and live a financially prudent life that glorifies and exalts Christ; as LORD over your finances. I am not advocating living small; even though it may seem like it in this book. But I am only advocating living ‘small’ (within your means) as a way of getting out of the debt trap; so that you can go forth and live “Big” for God through righteousness and financial independence. This is pure wisdom. My prayer is that you will be transformed into a financial pillar in the Body of Christ as you read this book and as you endeavour to apply the principles in it. You will not fail. You will succeed.
