I thought I’d share this because I’m grateful every day for what God has done, and He used Katie’s teachings to help bring deliverance to my husband and I. A little over a year ago, we were over $50,000 in debt with mostly student loans. Although my husband and I were doing everything we could to get extra work on top of our full time jobs, working barely above minimum wage made the situation feel hopeless. In my hopelessness and desperation, I began applying Katie’s principles. Since I worked alone I would pray “FIRE ON THAT DEBT IN JESUS’ NAME!”. I could feel fire within my being as I prayed and my faith tank became refueled. Doors began opening that weren’t possible before. Among other things, the Lord made a way for us to move to my great-grandparents house that had been abandoned for 7 years. It was a leap of faith since the house was 2,000 miles away in Idaho. Since I hadn’t seen it in nearly a decade, I was unsure of the condition. Even so, moving here enabled us to pay huge chunks of the debt down. Now, 15 months later, 47,000 has been paid off and God is leading us into a new season to fully embrace all that He has for us without the shackles of debt. This journey taught me just how much God cares for us on an individual level. In trying to figure things out myself, I only became depressed and filled with anxiety; but as I released this burden to the Lord and commanded the fire on our finances and resources, breakthroughs I could never fathom or dream of began to spring forth. He is more than able to provide and meet every need… Physically. Mentally. Spiritually. And yes, even financially. 🙂 -B. B.
