This is the Second Law of Money that I wish to Share with you today. The ability to retain money that comes to your hand is one of the greatest qualities of a future millionaire. What does that mean? What I mean is that whenever you are given a hundred dollars, money acts like God. Money dictates to you its wishes. Once the hundred dollar comes to your pocket, money begins to dish out to you instruction on how you must obey its command by going to spend it. This is what made Jesus to call money a god – Mammon. Because money acts like God.
God gives out commandments. God commands. God orders. Money does the same things. Money desires to be obeyed just like God desires to be obeyed. So when money comes to your hand, immediately, the spirit of mammon begins to exact its authority and claim its authority over you. By retaining the money in your hand however, you are declaring your liberty and freedom over the God of mammon. You are thereby proclaiming your own independence over the spirit of greed, anxiety and lust.
If you could take a hold of the money and put it down not looking at it and not obeying its dictates by running out to spend it, you have just turned the table on the god of mammon. You are telling money that it is no more your Lord. You’re asserting your authority over the power of money by telling him, I can have you here and not spend you because I am the one in charge. I tell you money what I want to do with you, you don’t dictate to me. I only obey the dictates of my Lord and Master Jesus Christ. That is how you break through from the power of money. Remember that money is a good servant, but a bad master.
The ability to retain money enables you to become the master of money and mammon. You stop being its slave and you assume the ‘rulership’ over him. Ladies and gentlemen let me tell you why this is important. It is only the man that has mastered the act of retaining money that can calmly dispense that money to judicious use. When you already have victory over money, only after that you could begin to hear the voice of God, the leading of the Spirit, because when the voices and dictates of money stop coming to your ear, another voice comes, the voice of the Holy Spirit that begins to lead you to where you can judiciously spend that money because God only speaks in stillness and calmness.
You must stop listening to the voices and dictates of mammon before you can begin to distinctly differentiate and hear the voice and the leading of the Holy Spirit. He will lead you to where to invest, He will lead you to where to save, He will lead you to the right people, He will give you the understanding of the right area of business to invest in, etc.
You must be able to prove to mammon that you have the will power to ignore it, bypass it and disregard its dictates. Only the person who has been able to do this can dominate and subdue money. Once you stop taking its order, it now begins to take your orders. When you stop being at its service, money now begins to come to your service.
