Bible Verses for Financial Breakthrough

Understanding what Scripture says about your financial life is key. We will focus on one Bible verse at a time. Each is paired with confession, powerful prayers and action items so that you can pray with confidence.

I was horrible at managing my money which caused many difficult times. Perhaps that is your situation, as well.

God needed to shift my priorities and give me a strong faith to make it through. Since struggling increases the muscles of our faith, God wants you to learn something new to become stronger in that area.

Ask, Seek & Knock

Bible Verse: “Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you” (Matthew 7:7, ESV).

    The first and most important thing to know is that God’s promises never fail. He plainly says to ask Him, seek Him, and knock on the door of our God of abundance.

    Confession: Dear Heavenly Father, you are the Lord Almighty who can open the floodgates of heaven. I confess that my finances are a mess. I have not been diligent to ask You and seek Your wisdom regarding my financial difficulties. Forgive me, dear Lord, and send help the Holy Spirit in my time of need.

    Prayer for Blessing

    Dear God, I am so weary of dealing with financial struggles. I am asking, seeking, and knocking on the windows of heaven for Your divine intervention. Guide me to a solid budgeting plan and give me Your strength to carefully follow it through my financial challenges. Show me, gracious Lord, where waste can be cut. and where my thinking needs to be adjusted to understand how to make wise financial decisions. In Jesus’ mighty name, Amen.

    Action Item: Seek a proven method or professional advisor for managing your finances. At the suggestion of a godly friend, I decided to order Dave Ramsey’s Total Money Makeover Workbook. I can tell you from first-hand experience, this works. As long as you stick to it, with God’s help you will start to experience financial freedom.

    God Supplies Your Every Need

    Bible Verse: “And my God will supply every need of yours according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19, ESV).

    There’s a huge difference between saying a prayer and praying. Going through the motions of following a budget will not stand the test of time if wise decisions regarding budgeting do not become a daily habit. God blesses the work of your hands when your good work regarding financial affairs is surrendered to His will.

    Confession: Heavenly Father, I confess that some days I do not have the energy to even think about my financial troubles. In this hard battle with my financial burdens, my heart is sometimes not in the right place to surrender control. Forgive me, Lord.

    Prayer for Blessing

    O Lord, You promise in Your Word that You will supply all of my needs according to Your riches in glory. I am in desperate need of Your intervention regarding my financial situation. Only You can bring about a financial miracle to provide for my daily needs. I trust You to guide me through this financial crisis. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

    Action Item: If you don’t pray each day, set aside 2 minutes each day to pray to your faithful Father. That two minutes may seem like an eternity. After your prayer habit forms, two minutes goes by like lightening. Simply start by thanking Him for supplying for your every need. Keeping a journal is a bonus.
