Owe man nothing but love. The borrower is the servant of the lender.” – Romans 13:8. My heart hurts for those in debt. It seems to steal their joy, change their character at the end of every month, and make them feel hopeless and a failure. I know, I was there. The truth is that if you have debt, you are not a failure and you are not hopeless. God is the hope to the hopeless and I declare you will come out!
I had major debt
At the age of 27 I was called into the ministry. I gave my businesses away to pursue this jewel, which I found in the field. I did however keep the debt, as God’s blessings add no sorrow. An expensive mountain of heaviness and anxiety pursued as I had no more cash flow to service the interest. I was in a crisis. I looked up to whence my help comes. In prayer, I heard Him say that there is life and death in the tongue. God led me to take my statement to the bank, say nothing, and just give it to the lady at the counter. This I obediently did. I then waited for what felt like an eternity, breaking into a cold sweat as I thought I was going to be arrested. I did not know that one cannot be arrested because of debt. The customer service agent returned and her face was grey. She said, ‘Mr Cairncross we have no record of you at all on any of our computers.’ I was debt free.
Do you want to be debt free?
God undertakes in different ways for different people. The most important lesson to take from this story is that He undertakes in which ever manner He chooses. Since then I have been holding Be Set Debt Free breakfasts in which I give 1 spiritual way and 3 practical ways on how to get out of debt. Host such a breakfast for your friends and church members, I will surely come, share, and pray with you. God undertakes. For freedom, you have been set free through the Cross of Calvary. Jesus has, can, and will do it for you. You are coming out of debt!
