God wants you to be wealthy and successful. He wants you to be financially free. The Lord desires to fill your house with treasure. He has given you the ability to make wealth. Our scriptural references are as follows.

Pro 8:20  I walk the way of righteousness; I follow the paths of justice,

Pro 8:21  giving wealth to those who love me, filling their houses with treasures.

Deuteronomy 8:18 ASV “But though shalt remember Jehovah thy God, for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth; that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as at this day.”

Let us look at some definitions.

1) Journey

Journey means traveling from one place to another, especially over a long distance. We can also describe a journey as moving from one position to another. We discuss money in this context.

2) Financial freedom

Financial freedom is the state of having sufficient personal wealth to live, without working actively for basic necessities. For many people, financial freedom is synonymous with early retirement. Financial freedom is the ability to control one’s personal finances. It is also the ability to make choices about spending and saving that lead to financial stability. It requires a disciplined and intentional approach to managing financial resources. Investing in your financial future is the key to financial freedom.


This is like planting a garden. You need to put in the time and effort up front to ensure your plants have what they require to grow and thrive. However, in the end, you will reap a bountiful harvest. It is the same with your projects. If you put in the work and dedication, you will succeed. All you need is patience and dedication.

Steps to financial freedom include:

1) Assess where you are at the moment. This includes asking yourself questions like: can you stay on top of your current debt? Can you save? Do you own a business for additional income? Do you invest?

2) Once you have a clear idea of your current financial position, you can set goals for yourself. Set realistic goals that are achievable in the short-term and long-term.

3) Create an action plan to reach your goals and monitor your progress regularly to ensure you are on track.

4) Make adjustments to your plan or goals if needed.

5) Celebrate when you reach your goals, as this will motivate you to strive for more.

In conclusion, I would like to emphasize that this is an introduction to the journey to financial freedom. We have explained that a journey may take a long time to reach. That is why you have to properly assess your financial circumstances to move forward. You need to follow some steps to start the journey and complete it. Please like and follow us on social media.
