Huge Debts Repaid

In 1993 I had to close my publishing company because of debts of about 35,000 Euro. Nevertheless, as a Christian, I trusted that the Lord would help me. The story of a Korean salt salesman, who lost all his stock during a flood catastrophe, encouraged me greatly. This man praised God in his empty storeroom, where all his salt had been washed away. He said, “the LORD has given, the LORD has taken away, blessed be the LORD!” (paraphrased from JOB 1:21).

I had to discipline myself a lot regarding my finances: firstly I had to get an overview of my debts and find out which ones I should pay back first. I then asked for advice, started budgeting, and learned to be faithful from month to month. I worked full time, did extra jobs and controlled all my expenses.

Once I took God at His Word, my finances were blessed in all kinds of ways...

During this time I had a deep revelation about the scripture in MALACHI 3:10 "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 the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it." Once I took God at His Word, my finances were blessed in all kinds of ways and I often did not know where all the money to pay back my debts came from. I received good wages and extra money all these years and also saved money through practical help and support from brethren in the church and my relatives.

Nevertheless, I did not want to compromise with God’s work and made sure that the Lord took priority. I did not miss any of our church’s meetings, hosted guests at my apartment, visited the Assemblies in Australia and also travelled to Russia and Scotland to help out in the Lord’s work.

After five years all my debts were paid - PRAISE THE LORD for this miracle!

I am very thankful and hope this testimony encourages others also to trust in the Lord and start believing His promises in the Bible.

Praise be to God again for such a great testimony and thank for encouraging my Faith in God

I am so grateful for this word. I recently opened my own business, i am trusting God to provide for me both spiritually and financially in the business. Trusting God, i opened the business, but recently i was really feeling a little depressed because i don't have the money to get more supplies and then when i had to pay back my dad, i used his credit card, so i was feeling a little low about that situation. Then i shake myself and tell myself that God will provide and this testimony was the cherry on top. So thank you again for this word.

Hi Mateus Gift!

Thank you very much for your comment. It is always uplifting to get some feed back... I have now also again a little bit new different but good story/ task to learn to trust in the LORD. My company (Post in Austria, where I live now,) told me that they finish the contract with me with the end of August... Praise the LORD again. He will supply - I keep you also in prayer for your request... where do you live? Would be nice to meet you some (soon) day
Love in Christ

I am very much encouraged by this testimony. I lost my business a couple of years ago and it left me with huge debt that I had to pay back with my little salary I was getting until last year when I decided to quit and pursue new business opportunities. I decided to quit my job because I was doing other things while working and being paid for the job that I was doing and that affected my integrity. Right now I am trusting God for supernatural breakthrough, for my new business venture to come to fruition. Through this business I want to be a solution to someone in trouble. May the Lord God answer my prayers today, in Jesus mighty Name.

These testimonies are very encouraging. I will learn to trust in our Lord Jesus Christ from now on and lean not on my own strength and wits.
