A poverty mentality is not about how much money you have. With a poverty mentality you could have a million dollars and it wouldn't make a difference at all! It's about fear & lack. If you have this spirit you will believe you are not good enough to be blessed, so you cling to what you have, in case you lose it. God wants to deal with this! The truth is God wants to bless us....Psalm 23 says "The Lord is my best friend and shepherd, I ALWAYS have more than enough". Read Genesis 22:14 it describes Jehovah Jireh, the God who provides.

This verse from Exodus says "You shall have no other gods before me." Do we really need this commandment? Yes, we certainly do. Whatever holds the highest place in a person's life is a god.

Those who trust in these kind of things will be left without a light in the dark night, until the words of the first commandment meets them in the judgment...."Thou shalt have no other gods before me." We are to fear, love, and trust in God alone, above all other people and things.
