WAR ON POVERTY SERIES: PRISONERS OF WAR!

Being in debt means one has lost a previous economic war of expectation and have now become a prisoner of war.

Proverbs 22:7, The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender.

However, we have remained prisoners of war in our debt situation because we chose to do the following:
1. We decided to exaggerate the positives of holding on to our project or asset and discounted the negatives so we could save face
2. We started looking for a major miracle to bail us out of our indebtedness
3. Instead of accepting the blame on why we are now in a sea of debt we started blaming everyone except yourself
4. We then get into a denial mode where we start to HALLUCINATE that we are debt free
5. We then became suicidal or criminal.

We can get out of our debt prison by doing the following:
1. We need to acknowledge that we are a prisoner of our past lifestyle who needs a debt amnesty.
2. Do not be emotionally attached to the assets you own - sell them to settle your debts before you lose them.
3. Seek advice and counsel from those who you are accountable to
4. Radically change our lifestyles even if it appears to humiliate us.
5. Pray that God will give us the grace to walk through this as He shows Himself to be our provider.

Matthew 5:25-26, “Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still together on the way, or your adversary may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison. Truly I tell you, you will not get out until you have paid the last penny.
