There’s something that you need to do and you may not even realize it: Learn how to manage your money. That’s right, today my good friend and New York Times bestselling author Rachel Cruze is joining me to talk about all things money and her new book, Know Yourself, Know Your Money. Then we’ll dive into Scripture and spend some time journaling.

 

Why Learning About Money Is So Important

So many of us never learned how to manage money growing up. And if you never learned how to manage money growing up, then you don't know how to manage your money now. You might be living paycheck to paycheck, barely getting by, and trying to pay your bills. You might be dreading those bills coming to your mailbox or inbox and struggling to keep your head above water. And you might just think, This is as good as it gets.

There’s more for you than just getting by. You can learn how to manage your money. You can learn how to live on less than you make so you can actually have some money. The trick to having money isn’t just to make more money—it's spending less money. And that's hard, but when you learn about it, you can do it. You’ll feel more powerful, more in control, more proud of yourself and more hopeful about the future because you realize that the person in control of that future is you.

 

The Secret to Understanding Money with Rachel Cruze

My good friend and bestselling author Rachel Cruze is joining us on the show today to talk about her new book, Know Yourself, Know Your Money. Y’all, this isn’t just another money book (although it will help you in that area too). It’s all about the “why” of why you handle money the way you do. In her book, Rachel helps you really dig into your spending habits and values.

 

Why You Should Be Asking God for Wisdom

“If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you.” — James 1:5 (NIV)

You and I are so good at trying to fix things ourselves, aren't we?  Oftentimes, when I face a problem in my life, I immediately go into problem-solving mode. And time after time, I run into dead ends and keep coming up empty-handed. After days or weeks of this, I’ll have an epiphany: Why don't I ask God about this? I'm so quick to try to pull myself up by my bootstraps and fix everything. And sometimes that works out for me, but a lot of times it doesn't.

Here’s the reality: If you're in a place where you’re struggling financially or in any area of your life, there are things that you can do to fix it. But you also can seek wisdom and ask God (who gives generously without finding fault) to meet you there. He will provide for you. He will provide information, resources, steps. He will provide discipline. And if you need it, He will provide discernment and correction.

I have a few journal questions to help you process and pray through this:

  1. In what area of your life do you need wisdom and help right now?
  2. What do you wish was different about your financial situation?
  3. What are you going to do to learn something new?
