Money can be a blessing or a curse. The Bible says we all have the same need and wealth to live. It’s a pay-it-forward mentality, but what does that look like when it comes to money? Do you have enough for daily needs, or do you have some extra which could be used for good or bad? Of course, we know we should not hoard funds in secret. But there are some Bible verses about financial blessings you may find interesting to read periodically.
How do I pray for a financial blessing?
Dear Heavenly Father, Keep me, I pray, from relying on money as my source and supply. Instead, may I choose to put my faith in You in all circumstances and put my trust in You first, to Your praise and glory. In the name of Jesus, Amen.
Bible verses about Money Blessings
Money is a topic that can cause much strife in any relationship. Some people believe that you deserve it if you don’t get all you want. But what about getting blessings instead of money? That should be your primary goal—blessing, not money. Money comes and goes, but blessing always follows us.
Hebrews 13:5 – God has given us enriching for all of God’s people from beginning to end.
Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
Hebrews 13:5 (KJV)
No matter how furiously the terrible winds of affliction lash our lives or who else may have betrayed or injured us, God, in His grace, has given us countless priceless benefits and pledged never to abandon us or forsake us.
May our endeavor be satisfied in everything and cultivate a character that is free from the love of money, knowing that He Himself has promised to be with us in all the shifting circumstances of our lives.
Philippians 4:19 – God’s unending favor.
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
Philippians 4:19 (KJV)
May we never convert our desires into necessities. Instead, may we conduct our lives on earth with the awareness that it is just temporary and that we will spend eternity in paradise. May we be grateful to God for His unending and abundant provision while yet being content with what we have.
Likewise, may be glad that we are the offspring of our mighty and merciful God, and may we be ready and willing to serve the Lord with all of our resources. And may we contribute to the gospel with joy, knowing that doing so honors the Lord, who will always meet all of our needs.
Matthew 6:24 – Be on guard.
No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.
Matthew 6:24 (KJV)
When God is given the proper place, wealth can be used for good, but we must constantly be on guard lest the love of money starts to permeate our thoughts and hearts. The love of money will eventually become our master and obliterate our Christian walk.
Proverbs 3:9 – Showing generosity.
Honour the Lord with thy substance, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase
Proverbs 3:9 (KJV)
Another realistic approach to demonstrate your complete reliance on the Lord is in this way (Proverbs 3:5). Since He is our true provider and we have complete trust in Him, we may show Him our gratitude by being generous.
Ecclesiastes 5:10 – There is no satisfaction with worldly wealth.
He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.
Ecclesiastes 5:10 (KJV)
The void left behind is, if anything, worse than the addiction money provides. Solomon was aware that amassing wealth did not satisfy him. He was aware that this is equally vain.
He made the decision to look to God for the riches that would last forever and that he would get in heaven. We should put all of our attention and addiction on Jesus because it is only through him that we may receive heavenly riches and blessings.
Proverbs 10:22 – God is the source of all good and perfect gifts.
The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.
Proverbs 10:22 (KJV)
There are many people who have been blessed with wealth and are wise enough to view their wealth as a gift from God. They are aware that the Father of Lights is the source of all good and perfect gifts, who bestows them from above (James 1:17).
This is a bigger blessing on top of a lesser one. It is a pleasure to receive wealth from God, but it is even more so to enjoy wealth without the suffering that is frequently associated with it. Many wealthy people live wretched lives and experience immense sadness in addition to their wealth.
1 Timothy 6:6 – Godliness is greater than anything this world can off.
But godliness with contentment is great gain. For we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out
1 Timothy 6:6 (KJV)
Paul is demonstrating the stark contrast between genuine “spiritual” wealth and untrue “worldly” wealth in this passage. While the apostle saw godliness and contentment as great gain, the world associates great gain with wealth, worldly possessions, power, and prestige.
Godliness is greater than anything this world can offer when united with inner happiness anchored in the sufficiency of Christ to meet all needs in accordance with His riches in glory.
Malachi 3:10 – Tithe opens doors to abundant blessings.
Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the Lord of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
Malachi 3:10 (KJV)
The main goal of the tithe was to provide financial assistance to the priests who served the LORD. The context for God’s words about tithes is the teaching that God is faithful.
It’s hard to find an equivalent passage of Scripture – where the LORD commanded His people to test Him. When God’s people give as He instructed, He makes promises. He would provide for them both and watch over them.
We may be confident that God would always provide for us abundantly when we gladly pay Him our tithes since He is not a guy who will lie or break his promises.
Proverbs 13:11 – God favors honest work.
Wealth gotten by vanity shall be diminished: but he that gathereth by labour shall increase.
Proverbs 13:11 (KJV}
The wealth that does not come from hard work and ethical business practices rarely lasts forever. All fortunes amassed through speculating, luck, serving others’ pride or luxury, etc., quickly go away. They are not permanent because they do not obstruct Providence and lack God’s blessing.
However, God favors honest work and the adoption of routines that typically generate, preserve, and grow riches.
Deuteronomy 8:18 – It’s all from God.
But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
Deuteronomy 8:18 (KJV)
It is simple to forget about the LORD during good times, or at the very least, to stop seeking Him as fervently as we once did. We frequently extol the virtues of our own diligence and intellect. But we must recognize that God endows us with physical, mental, and talented faculties. It’s all from God.
We are reminded of God’s blessings in this verse. He intends for everything to finally serve His eternal goal. As a result, we have no right to use our worldly bounty for our own benefit; instead, we should use it to expand His kingdom
How do you pray for money in the Bible?
Praying for money in the Bible is one of the more popular ways to pray and ask God for financial blessings. But how does it work? And what does it look like in our lives to have faith and have faith that God will hear and answer our prayers?
I will say this if there is a person with a desire for money, and you have a desire for money, then that person will come to you.
The Bible says that if you want to receive blessings, ask God. But if you want to receive blessings, ask God and obey His commandments. So if you want money, ask God and obey His commandments. The Bible says that whoever desires money will be blessed with it (Genesis 2:18).
The word translated “desire” in this passage means “to long for” or “to yearn.” It is used in two senses. First, it refers to longing or craving; second, it attracts one’s attention or tends strongly towards an object (compare Luke 16:24).
The word used here denotes a strong inclination, not only desire but longing after something. A man may have plenty of good things around him without any particular wish for them, but if he has a strong desire for them, he will not rest until he has obtained them.
Powerful Psalms for Financial Blessings.
This list is for you if you’re looking for powerful Psalms for financial blessings. There is much to be said about the Bible regarding financial blessings and prosperity. However, many people don’t even realize that biblical principles are used to make wealth happen in the United States and worldwide.
And let the beauty of the LORD our God be upon us: and establish thou the work of our hands upon us; yea, the work of our hands establish thou it.
Psalm 90:17 (KJV)
Moses prayed for the work of God’s people to last forever as the final part of his blessing. Our work and its effectiveness would pass quickly and have little impact without this blessing in our lives.
When we work hard, the satisfaction, joy, and success in our work all result from our relationship with the Lord in the context of our weakness.
The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.
Psalm 23:1-2 (KJV)
This Psalm defines the Lord Jesus Christ as our support and sustenance during every stage of our existence. Because the Lord is our Peacemaker and Provider. Lord is our Refuge and Strength. Our reward and source of righteousness are the Lord. Our Shepherd and Sanctuary are in the Lord.
How silly it is to seek for the stagnant pools and broken cisterns that this world provides, how reckless it is to become overwhelmed in the floods of fancy that knock on our doors, or become entangled in the whirlpools of life’s calamities when we have a heavenly Shepherd who meets all our wants.
The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot. The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.
Psalm 16:5-6 (KJV)
David went on to discuss the benefits he obtained from Yahweh after noting that there was nothing to be found in the gods of the nations. David had faith that God would uphold what He had first given him.
Here, David uses the term contentment. With what God has given him, he is happy. Discontentment, dissatisfaction, and restlessness are hallmarks of our day, particularly with this generation and possibly even more so with those who will come after. Our attention spans are short, we require constant thrills and adrenaline rushes, entertainment is available around-the-clock, and we need firsthand knowledge of what David knew. We must find satisfaction in the Lord, our God.
For they got not the land in possession by their own sword, neither did their own arm save them: but thy right hand, and thine arm, and the light of thy countenance, because thou hadst a favour unto them
Psalm 44:3 (KJV)
The psalmist confirmed Israel’s faith in the Lord by recalling God’s prior faithfulness to the nation’s forefathers. God extended his arm in their favor because of their faith in him, doing so out of pure goodwill;
They were blessed by God, who was delighted with them. Above all the other people on the face of the globe, he chooses them to be special people to himself.
For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.
Psalm 84:11-12 (KJV)
The psalmist describes the goodness and blessings that are given to those pilgrims who adore and hunger for God’s temple. They appreciate God as the source of protection (the sun) and blessing (shield). They benefit from His abundant grace and glory. Those who put their trust in the Lord are blessed.
Who redeemeth thy life from destruction; who crowneth thee with lovingkindness and tender mercies; Who satisfieth thy mouth with good things; so that thy youth is renewed like the eagle’s.
Psalm 103:4-5 (KJV)
God’s magnificence goes beyond protecting us from sin, illness, or difficulty. We are crowned with His immense love and kindness through God’s blessing. Our lives will be truly satisfied as a result of God’s work, both in terms of what He saves us from and what He rescues us towards.
God desires to bring actual fulfillment into our lives through excellent things, which is different from mere amusement or pleasure. His people draw power and vigor from this fulfillment.
There shall be an handful of corn in the earth upon the top of the mountains; the fruit thereof shall shake like Lebanon: and they of the city shall flourish like grass of the earth.
Psalm 72:15-16 (KJV)
Solomon said things about Messiah the King that may have been beyond his own comprehension but was inspired by the Holy Spirit. The Greater King would receive gifts and honors and praise. He would then grant His people and the earth enormous blessings, including an abundance of crops (those of the city shall flourish).
Let the people praise thee, O God; let all the people praise thee. Then shall the earth yield her increase; and God, even our own God, shall bless us. God shall bless us; and all the ends of the earth shall fear him.
Psalm 67:5-7 (KJV)
We were made by God to understand His path, His salvation, and His love. When we do this, the earth itself is joyful because the inhabitants are fulfilling their divine purpose. The natural order established by God for the world and humanity is then respected, and blessing follows.
We will be blessed when we communicate God’s passion and purpose for the world. We are then fortunate. The entire earth is in God’s heart and is part of his purpose.
Let God (the psalm encourages us to pray), who brings much out of little and distributes it in love, bring such blessing on us as to make us, in our turn, the blessing of the world!
Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
Psalm 35:27 (KJV)
In this psalm, David discussed his own needs and struggles extensively. But he concentrated heavily on God and His adoration as he closed. He considered how the followers of God were growing in their relationship with the LORD and how he was constantly praising God (my tongue shall speak of Your righteousness and of Your praise all day long).
Like David, let us express our thankfulness to God for his blessings—both visible and invisible—in our lives by opening our hearts.
