In Genesis 11, the story of the Tower of Babel, reveals to us how the Babylonian system works. It is a system that tries to work without God.
You see, most of the world is set up on the Babylonian system, and if you don’t be careful, you’ll get caught up in it too. This system is based on debt, credit, and keeping only just enough to get by with. It’s constantly struggling to get financially free but trusting your own devices instead of God.
Worry, fear, and an ‘” I can’t afford” mentality is Babylonian thinking. You’re not supposed to be worried about how you are going to make it. You need to think like Abraham and Job; they had total trust in God and knew that God would bring them out.
If any of this applies to you, switch from the Babylonian system to God’s system.
The Babylonian system of the world is blown away by the flow of God’s kingdom!
You have to see Him as your ONLY SOURCE! See yourself as the lender and not the borrower. See yourself free from debt, lack, and insufficiency. All you have to do is trust Him!
Remember, God’s Word says in Jeremiah 29:11 –
For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (NIV)
God’s plan is to prosper you. So, if you want to receive the prosperity from God’s plan, you will have to seek Him and not yourself.
