Does God Providing A Way Include Debt???


This is a major pet peeve of mine..hearing people say that God has so incredibly shown his will for someone's life by giving them access to debt, or that God is "providing" through debt.

I say. Uh. No.

The Bible says in Proverbs 22:7, "The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender."

Thus I ask, why would God supply a need of ours through another need?

God's way of providing for us should not enslave us to another.

Philippians 4:19 states, "And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus."

Please don't say "Well it was God's will for me to go to this college because I was accepted for tons of loans!"

Or, "God wanted us to buy this house because we were able to qualify for a loan."

Back when I desired to go to a certain college, I discovered I was $1700 short to cover tuition that first year. I happened to get hit by a 16 year old girl who ran a red light, thus totalling my car. The insurance payment totaled $1700, which was exactly what I needed. I tend to think that was more of God's providing a will and a way since I was able to freely enjoy college without being enslaved to a student loan company.
