Most people get into debt is because they try to pay or buy something they don’t have the money on hand to buy and they borrow it.

As I told you before, God is a debt cancelling God.  You can be debt free.

I am telling you today that you have a right to be debt free.  How do I know that?  Look at Deuteronomy and look at what God has promised you as a believer.

Deuteronomy 28:1-2,10-12 (KJV) And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: 2 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God. 10And all people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the name of the LORD; and they shall be afraid of thee. 11 And the LORD shall make thee plenteous in goods, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy ground, in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers to give thee. 12 The LORD shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand: and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.

God is telling you that you are supposed to be the lender and not the borrower.

Debt is a curse and here’s what the curse looks like.

Deuteronomy 28:15,37,38,39,43,44 (AMP) But if you will not obey the voice of the Lord your God, being watchful to do all His commandments and His statutes which I command you this day, then all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you: 37And you shall grope at noonday as the blind grope in darkness. And you shall not prosper in your ways; and you shall be only oppressed and robbed continually, and there shall be no one to save you. 38 You shall carry much seed out into the field and shall gather little in, for the locust shall consume it. 39 You shall plant vineyards and dress them but shall neither drink of the wine nor gather the grapes, for the worm shall eat them. 43 The transient (stranger) among you shall mount up higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower. 44 He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail.

This scripture tells us that to be the borrower is listed under the curse and we as believers are not supposed to be cursed but supposed to be living under The Blessing as it tells us in Galatians 3:13,

Galatians 3:13-14 (KJV) Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: 14 That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.

Jesus bore all curse including debt.  So, we are not supposed to be the borrower, but we are supposed to be the lender.

Romans 13:8 (AMP) Keep out of debt and owe no man anything, except to love one another;

This is what the Word is telling us about us.

As I teach this to you, I don’t want you to get condemned if you are in debt, but this teaching is designed to give you the faith it takes to leave debt.

Think about it, God wants you to leave sickness.  Now a person who doesn’t know Christ and gets sick then they go to the doctor because they are trying to get well.

Debt is listed in the Bible verses we just read, and you ought to get out of debt.  God’s idea for you is to live without debt and no longer be under its curse and be happy.

Borrowing may get you what you want but you are trading something much more precious to get it.  You are trading your life.  When you borrow some money, you mortgage your future because usually you got to pay someone once a month.

I want to wake up your desire to be out of debt and for you to say, I’m not supposed to be in debt.  If your desire is not awakened that’s what you will be.  God gives you the desire of your heart.  If you don’t desire it, what is God going to do about it? He can’t do nothing.  So, get a desire to be out of debt.  So, I share with you four ways God can deliver you out of debt:

1 – Eliminate debt by a miracle.

2 Kings 6:1-7 (KJV) And the sons of the prophets said unto Elisha, Behold now, the place where we dwell with thee is too strait for us. 2 Let us go, we pray thee, unto Jordan, and take thence every man a beam, and let us make us a place there, where we may dwell. And he answered, Go ye. 3 And one said, Be content, I pray thee, and go with thy servants. And he answered, I will go. 4 So he went with them. And when they came to Jordan, they cut down wood. 5 But as one was felling a beam, the axe head fell into the water: and he cried, and said, Alas, master! for it was borrowed. 6 And the man of God said, Where fell it? And he shewed him the place. And he cut down a stick, and cast it in thither; and the iron did swim. 7 Therefore said he, Take it up to thee. And he put out his hand, and took it.

This person desired to be out of debt and God have him a miracle.

I heard a story of a man who desired to be out of debt and got debt free by a miracle.  He had heard of a man who pointed at his bills and commanded the bills to be paid off.  He used Mark 11:23,

Mark 11:23 (KJV) For verily I say unto you, That whosoever shall say unto this mountain, Be thou removed, and be thou cast into the sea; and shall not doubt in his heart, but shall believe that those things which he saith shall come to pass; he shall have whatsoever he saith.

So, he pointed at the mountain of bills and commanded them to be paid off right now and he got his miracle debt elimination.

You can have a miracle of debt elimination too if you will use your faith by speaking to the debt and believe what you say has come to pass.

2 – Eliminate debt by wisdom.

Ask the Lord to give you wisdom to get out of debt, 2 Kings 4,

2 Kings 4:1-7 (KJV) Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the LORD: and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be bondmen. 2 And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil. 3 Then he said, Go, borrow thee vessels abroad of all thy neighbours, even empty vessels; borrow not a few. 4 And when thou art come in, thou shalt shut the door upon thee and upon thy sons, and shalt pour out into all those vessels, and thou shalt set aside that which is full. 5 So she went from him, and shut the door upon her and upon her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured out. 6 And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said unto her son, Bring me yet a vessel. And he said unto her, There is not a vessel more. And the oil stayed. 7 Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, Go, sell the oil, and pay thy debt, and live thou and thy children of the rest.

God gave the prophet a series of steps, God’s Wisdom, for the woman’s debt to be cancelled.  God too will give you what to do and He will give you one step at a time.  All of this is a result of desire, as you noticed the woman cried to the man of God.  Her cry was that she was placing a demand on the man of God for God’s wisdom and she said told him that he knew her husband did fear the Lord and now you tell me what to do. 

3 – Eliminate debt by overflow.

You can see overflow in Luke 6:38

Luke 6:38 (KJV) Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.

You can see the overflow of Luke 6:38 in Luke 5, when Jesus was preaching on the shore line in Peter’s fishing boat.

Luke 5:3-7 (KJV) And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land. And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship. 4 Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught. 5 And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. 6 And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake. 7And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.  

They had overflow of fish and you too are not only going to get enough to meet your needs but you are going to get enough to pay down that debt.

Three ways to get out of debt were a miracle, wisdom and overflow and one of those fits you and so pick one.

4 – Eliminate debt by sowing a seed.

Another way you also can get out of debt is by what Peter did and it is through a seed.  Peter sowed a seed, his fishing boat, for Jesus’ ministry of the Word that day and a seed will meet any need. You sow that seed and once you sow that seed then the Lord begins to multiply that seed sown and then take some of that and sow it and pretty soon the debt is paid off.

God is in favor of debts being paid.

Deuteronomy 15:1-2 (MSG) At the end of every seventh year, cancel all debts. 2 This is the procedure: Everyone who has lent money to a neighbor writes it off. You must not press your neighbor or his brother for payment: All-Debts-Are-Canceled—GOD says so.

All debts in your life are cancelled because God said so and you need to agree with Him and speak it.  So, God is a debt cancelling God. 

Now in this scripture all debts were cancelled every seventh year and you may think you are not in the seventh year yet.  I ask you, are you in faith?  Because faith overrides time, so your seven years is right now.

So, notice, you are not waiting on God to eliminate the debt, God is waiting on you to get a desire to get out of debt and choose which way of God I shared with you is your way of eliminating debt.

This same process can be used to cancel the debt in your family, a church, a business, a city; there is no limit to it.

I pray for you to have a desire to get out of debt and that you will allow the Lord to quicken to you how He wants you to use your faith so He can eliminate all debt in your life because all debts are cancelled because God said so and you say so.
