No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.- Matthew 6:24
If you don’t know who mammon is, he is the spirit that satan has set over money. Many people’s finances are under the control of mammon and they don’t even know it. You see, when mammon’s spirit controls a person’s money: it controls them not to sow. It stops them from going to higher levels in their finances because even mammon knows that the only way they can do that is by sowing seed.
Mammon will also try to make a person look to substitutes when it comes to their finances instead of being led by the Spirit of God. Substitutes, such as working multiple jobs or getting a good education. How many people do you know that went to college but are still broke? Have a good job, yet still broke? THERE IS NO SUBSTITUTE for being led by the Holy Spirit. You must trust the Holy Spirit to lead you in ALL your affairs, even your finances.
In order to break mammon’s mastery over your money; YOU have to switch your money’s master by giving it to THE MASTER. You do that by sowing. You must choose to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit concerning your money more than you listen to the spirit of mammon. The Holy Spirit is the only thing that knows how to guide you to your financial breakthrough. He will show you how much, where, and when to sow.
