SEVEN MONEY TYPES PART 1

Moses: Endurance

Moses represents financial endurance, which requires well-ordered financial habits. We see this in his life in the way he implemented meticulous, thorough, and extremely structured systems pertaining to resources. Financial endurance doesn’t happen with haphazard, disorganized financial thinking and practices. Moses types are very organized with money and love thorough, thoughtful, short-and long-term financial plans. They find a system that works and they stick with it. They come to life within structure. Moses types are steady-handed, consistent, and determined.

Moses types believe there should be a place for every dollar, and every dollar should be in its place. They’ll check to make sure this is the case, and often so. Doing this provides Moses types the assurance not only that they are doing their part to provide for their needs in the most responsible way possible, but also that they have done everything within their power to prepare for financial situations that may arise in the future.

Moses was highly organized with resources. The books Exodus and Leviticus are stocked with examples that illustrate the plans Moses received from the Lord and had to execute, plans that called for meticulous resource management. Moses types love order, especially in their finances. They view it as the secret to longevity and long-term financial vitality. And while they think about money all the time, their well-ordered financial lifestyles provide space for them not to worry excessively about money.

Next, you’ll learn about the Aaron money type.

PROMISE 7

I will give you a future and a hope.

Perhaps more than ever, our world often feels like a dangerous, precarious place. Economic ups and downs, terrorism, mass shootings—and these are just a few big things—not to mention the personal issues like health and relationships. No wonder the next promise is so popular and well known: I will give you a future and a hope. This promise comes from the famous passage in Jeremiah 29:11. This is what we all want out of life! For things to get better, for the future to be a place worth working toward.

I love this verse, but when taken in isolation, it can mess with your expectations. It seems to draw a straight line from where you are to where God wants you to be—or where you think God should want you to be. You think, If God makes the plans, there will be no disasters. Things will get better and better. Terrible things won’t happen. But when things don’t go as you hoped, you start to lose confidence. Maybe God’s not even in control. Maybe he doesn’t care about your well-being. But those feelings are just that—feelings—and not the truth.

No matter all the evidence to the contrary, you can stand on this incredible promise. Keeping in step with God means letting his promises set the tempo for your life. God not only promises his presence but also his purpose. He doesn’t give you purpose instead of problems butalongside whatever problems pop up. God has a perfect future in store for you, but that perfect future begins in the imperfect now.

Are you willing to take your dreams and goals and lay them down before God? Are you willing to let them go if God desires something else for you? If you’re not willing to surrender a dream, then that dream holds a higher position in your life than God. It’s good to follow your dreams, but it’s essential to follow Jesus. Only he has plans to give you a future and a hope.

Live free in the promise: I will give you a future and a hope.

PROMISE 6

I will help you stand in temptation.

I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is present with me. For I delight in the law of God after the inward man: But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members. O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death? I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the flesh the law of sin.
Romans 7:21‭-‬25 KJV

One of the greatest obstacles to enjoying the uncaged life is our ongoing struggle with temptation. No matter how spiritually mature or devoted we are to following Jesus, as human beings, we will always face temptations. Understanding and appropriating God’s promises, however, can empower us in this battle. We can accept his grace and live in his power to find freedom.

We’re all baffled at our own behavior at times. Maybe you need to control your temper, stop tearing into people, or blowing up. But then that person starts driving you crazy again, pushing your buttons. You know that guy or girl is no good for you. You know you should get to church on the weekend. You know what you should do, but you are constantly tempted to cave. Paul bottom-lines it for us: “I have discovered this principle of life—that when I want to do what is right, I inevitably do what is wrong” (Romans 7:21). The struggle with temptation is baked right into life. Wanting what’s right but doing what’s not right. But Paul gives us the ultimate solution to our sin problem: “Thank God! The answer is in Jesus Christ our Lord” (Romans 7:25).

Our freedom has been won on the cross, but we still struggle to live in that freedom. It’s a battle to grow into the person you really are in Christ. But you don’t resist temptation to hang onto your salvation. You resist it to grow, thrive, and receive all of the good things God wants to give you. That’s why I’m grateful for this promise of God: I will help you stand in temptation.

God is aware of the temptations you face. I don’t believe he leads you to sin, but he does allow temptation and testing. In fact, the term temptation can also be translated “trial.” God sees to it that no temptation will be too much for you to bear. He always shows you a way out. Resisting temptation is not like flipping a switch. You’re caught in a spiritual battle! You have a spiritual adversary who wants to hold you down in destructive habits and make you lose sight of God’s promises. And you don’t have to look for the fight—the fight will find you. You will find yourself facing difficulties you don’t understand. Yet, difficulty teaches humility, which empowers your future victory. Don’t let the testing become a ground to give into temptation. Stand firm on the promise that he will show you a way out and that victory is possible.

Live free in the promise: I will stand with you in temptation.

PROMISE 5

I will give you a new identity.

Remember mixtapes? Well, cassette mixtapes might be as obsolete as rotary phones and fax machines, but I bet you probably have a mixtape that plays in your mind every day. Instead of your favorite bands, your mixtape often plays back negative and destructive messages you’ve recorded from assorted sources: parents, friends, media, enemies, and exes. We each have our own custom-made, sure-to-hit-us-where-it-hurts mix. You’re nobody. You’ll never amount to anything. People don’t like you. You’ll always be ugly. You’ll never be enough. You’ll always be just a jock or a nerd; a clown or a geek. You’re weird. You’re stupid. You’re just like your father or mother. Nobody will ever love you. Things will never change.

This old, worn-out mixtape reinforces your old identity in powerful and destructive ways. It keeps you trapped in lies and prevents you from fully embracing your new identity. But you can rise up in faith and walk in a new life. There’s a much better soundtrack for your life if you’re willing to shred the old mixtape. In Romans 9:25-26 MSG, Paul reminds us of how God sees us, “I’ll call nobodies and make them somebodies; I’ll call the unloved and make them beloved. In the place where they yelled out, ‘You’re nobody!’ they’re calling you ‘God’s living children.’” This is God’s promise: I will give you a new identity. The truth is a much better mixtape that you must listen to over and over.

The power of words that you speak to yourself and others are very important parts of embracing this new identity. You shape your words, and then your words shape you. James explains, “[…] A small rudder makes a huge ship turn wherever the pilot chooses to go, even though the winds are strong. In the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches” (James 3:4-5). If you believe something long enough, you’ll likely live in a way to prove you are right! So, the next time you catch yourself thinking, “I’ll never have enough” or “People don’t change,” take out that tape.

Believe you are somebody in God. Your kids will see a model for one who holds their head high with significance. You will work from a place of confidence and trust in God. You will love your spouse and family from a grounded self-worth based in God’s worth—the humble posture that realizes, I was a nobody, but God made me a somebody!

Live free in the promise: I will give you a new identity.

PROMISE 4

I will bless you.

Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
Genesis 12:1‭-‬3 KJV

Think about the last time you checked the ATM. Did you marvel at how much you have or did you struggle to cover all of your obligations? Or how about your job? Do you come home each day amazed at how energized and appreciated you are? Or does it feel like you barely have the strength to return tomorrow? These are “not-enough” moments. Not enough money. Not enough time. Not enough energy, patience, connection, happiness, joy, or peace. No matter what you have, you need more of it. And no matter how much more of it you get, it’s still never enough.

It’s nearly impossible to share what you have when you’re constantly worried that you don’t have enough. You filter everything through the sense of scarcity, and this mentality destroys generosity, contentment, and gratitude. Thankfully, there’s another way of seeing life: with an abundance mindset. It declares that there will always be more than enough. It’s the idea that generosity is hardwired into reality. God is the source of everything good in this world. He loves to see his people well-cared for. There is no scarcity with him because God has no needs yet supplies all.

Whenever you see God show up in the Bible, it’s so often to bless people—to provide them with what they need, often to the point of overflowing, so that they can in turn be a blessing to others. God has given us this promise,I will bless you because without it, we will never have enough, do enough, or be enough. God’s blessings are the only cure for not-enough-itis.

The Bible holds powerful proof that God wants to bless us! Jesus’ longest sermon in the Gospels begins with the Beatitudes, which is a whole invitation to blessedness. And in the opening pages of Genesis, the very first thing God does after creating man and woman is bless them. The entire Bible is filled with God blessing his people. And in the New Testament, Paul says that the most important promise God made to Abraham in Genesis 12:1-3 is passed on to you, too, and that it’s not supposed to end with you. God blesses us so we can be a blessing to others.

Live free in the promise: I will bless you.
