What’s the difference between a Biblical money mindset and manifesting money?
So many Christian female entrepreneurs don’t want to have anything to do with manifesting money… but they aren’t entirely sure what the Bible says about this.
I know you want to have a Biblical foundation for your money and that’s really important to you.
So in today’s video, I want to put manifesting money and what the Bible says about money side by side.
I’ll show you the differences between them and a couple of surprising things I’ve discovered in the Word of God about manifesting money.
I’m going to step on some toes at the very end of this video, with my final point.
What does manifest really mean?
The dictionary definition says manifest is to “display or show (a quality or feeling) by one’s acts or appearance; to be evidence of; prove, or appear.”
The majority of the time manifest appears in the Bible, it’s talking about Jesus being manifested as a real person, a visible, physical being who walked on earth among us.
It was through Jesus’ life that God’s Word, God’s love, God’s name, God’s glory, and the Holy Spirit was made evident and clearly shown.
While the Bible also talks about our works and things that are secret are made manifest, brought into the light, and clearly shown, there’s nothing that talks about manifesting money.
Source That Creates Money
Manifesting money uses the power of your mind, visualization, and positive intentions to create money.
You are the one who decides that you want more money, so you speak it and visualize it. You call it into existence and have the universe align with your desires.
You are the source of this money and it’s all your thoughts that bring extra money to you.
This is a very you-centric view.
When you have a Biblical view of money, you understand that God created money (in Genesis 2) and He has given us the power to create wealth Deut 8:18.
That power to create wealth comes from partnering with God to serve others and make the world a better place through business, where money is exchanged as a token of gratitude.
There are actions you must take to serve someone else that creates wealth.
We can also have the confidence to come boldly and ask our Daddy God for things we need and even want.
Stick around to the end, because when it comes to visualization, as Christians I think we’ve got a lot to learn from those who manifest money.
Who Gets The Credit?
Who gets the credit for the increase in money?
When you’re manifesting, you claim credit or give credit to the universe, when you find money on the ground or a big client comes through.
However, as Christians, we believe in the almighty God who created the universe and that He is the source of money.
He created it. He owns it all. He is the one who has provided it for you.
He’s a good Father who delights in giving good gifts and prospering His children so that they might know His generosity and be a blessing to others.
Give a thumbs up if this is resonating with you!
Basis for Receiving Money
Because manifesting money is so focused on you and your desires, the basis for receiving money is that you’re a good person and you deserve money.
You deserve all good things in your life, especially after everything you’ve gone through.
When you truly understand how much God delights in you and that you are His beloved daughter, you have access to everything He has promised and all His riches.
You receive all these good things, including more money, based on who you are, a beloved daughter of God, under the watch and care of our Shepherd who loves us.
It’s not a subjective view of how good you were/are which can change from day to day, and who is determining what ‘good’ is. Right?
Speaking of good things, you might be surprised to hear what I have to say about replacing our negative thoughts with positive ones and how that relates to money.
We’ll get to that in just a minute.
It’s because of who we are, that we have full access to the wealth He gives, and with the wealth comes a responsibility.
You have the responsibility to continue to serve others and make their lives better, through your business.
Wise stewardship and management of all the financial blessings
Wise stewardship and management of all the financial blessings reflect God’s purposes for how money is to be used.
Serve others with your business, provide for your family, manage wisely, save for the future, live without debt, invest, and increase the wealth you have…in order to be extremely generous.
All of this reflects God’s goodness and generosity. It reflects His light to a dark and hurting world, drawing others to know Him.
Negative vs positive thinking
One of the key principles in manifesting is getting rid of all the negative thoughts and vibrations, in order to replace them with positive thoughts.
When your mind is filled with positive thoughts, then the universe aligns with your desires and begins to bring you so much money, right?
That’s not far off from the truth. We’re called to take every thought captive in obedience to Christ.
To focus on all the things that are true, honorable, right, pure, lovely, excellent, or praiseworthy.
Your mind is a battlefield, because if your enemy can get you to spiral out with negative thoughts, with guilt, shame, fear, and doubt…
How you reflect God in the life you live, how you run your business, and your legacy of impact and generosity will all be a mere shadow of what it could be.
It’s only when you know the truth of the Word of God and you make the choice to believe this truth, that you are able to break free from these strongholds in your mind.
You can have a mind of abundance instead of one of scarcity.
Visualize your dreams coming true in vivid detail.
Write it down 100 times a day like it actually happened and how you feel/are when it does happen.
Visualization is a major component for those who are manifesting money.
What if we are completely wrong?
Anytime God talks about redemption and blessing, He goes into vivid detail when describing it.
“Behold the days are coming,” declares the Lord, “when the plowman will overtake the reaper, and the treader of grapes, the sower of seed. The mountains will drip with sweet wine, with which all the hills will flow. I will restore my people Israel from captivity, they will rebuild and inhabit the ruined cities. They will plant vineyards and drink their wine; they will make gardens and eat their fruit.”
He wants us to see, feel, and experience His promised blessings so tangibly that we can have a foundation for a strong belief in His goodness that walks out in obedience and action to see these promises come to pass.
Asking for what we want, and thanking God for providing those gifts, or something better, as we take action in faith and obedience to partner with God to bring them about is a great attitude to have.
Yet most of us focus so much on the struggle or on the fact we don’t have what we desire, continuing to wallow in all the negative thoughts that we miss the blessings altogether and don’t take any action to claim them.
While there are a few aspects to manifesting money that is based on Biblical truth, most don’t sit right with our spirits for good reason.
Do you whole-heartly believe God’s truth about money and wealth?
However, the real question is, as a Christian do you whole-heartly believe God’s truth about money and wealth? Enough to take action in order to receive His promised abundance?
Now you know the difference between manifesting money and what the Bible says, let’s see the incredible transformation you’ll experience when you truly believe God’s truth about money, watch this video next.
