"I Need Help" is the most empowering yet embarrassing phase in the world. For some, it just rolls off of their tongue like nothing while for others just the thought of saying those words are paralyzing. When it comes to saying these words when the help that's needed is financial it makes you feel as though the world is about to come to a sudden and abrupt end. If you are like and was raised to be self-sufficient and to stand on your own two feet these words are like death. I must admit that there were many times where I could have used a cash infusion and because of my pride, I failed to ask anyone and resorted to other means such as high-interest loans that did not work out in my favor.
Why is it so easy for some and so hard for others to ask for financial help? We don't have to look too far for the answer to this question because the culprit is the good old dynamic duo called Mammon and Fear. These two very dominant spirits work hand in hand together to keep the majority of the world's population from ever coming anywhere even remotely close to becoming who God created them to be.
The spirit of Fear always leads out and his job is to keep you from ever even trying to discover your true identity. Fear is a bully and a liar and as long as you allow him access to your life he will steal all your dreams from you one at a time. It is vital that we learn to conquer our fears over and over again because just like many of the spirits that plague the souls of men fear is not going anywhere. He will be there right up to your dying breath.
Then after you accidentally find some inspiration from somewhere to go for it after realizing at some point that there is more to life the spirit of Mammon sets you up by trying to snatch the profit of your success from you at every turn. Then fear kicks back in and tries to keep you from making the so-called same mistake by scaring you back into your cocoon so that you won't ever try to be more than you already are. It a never-ending roller coaster of emotions, lack of resources and fear. Just when you need help the most you cannot even bring yourself to even mutter the words to your closest of friends and family.
Truth is, in a perfect world no one should have to ask for financial help. But because we live in a sin-sick world that operates on the principles of darkness people take every opportunity to take advantage of others. God has overstock this planet with everything man or beast could ever need. But because of greed and the lust for power and control, we are here. We experience lack and poverty because of men who serve mammon and are always trying to hoard more than their share. This creates homelessness, hunger and every other type of social problem in the world.
"A feast is made for laughter, and wine maketh merry: but money answereth all things." Eccl. 10:19 KJV
Money is the answer. So, ensuring that you have plenty of it or at least enough of it is very important. But, when the money gets low or gets gone altogether do not be afraid to ask for help. Often times, when people come to me for help after they have finally mustered up the courage to do so the situation, is far worse than it should have been if they would have said something at the first. Please don't let this be you. Live in faith not fear that the God that created the heavens and the earth which also created you sees you and understands.Please Follow Me On Social Media @moneyisadefense
