Throw Money at It!

     In such a money-driven society, such as ours, it's easy to get into the mindset (and this must be guarded against and cast out) of thinking that everything can and will improve by money. When we, as Christ followers, are tempted to think like this, it diminishes the belief that what really brings true help is to call on the Lord in praying according to His Will, and looking to Him to resolve the problem. He gives us access to the realm of Spirit to beseech Him and ask. This shows our trust in His ability and in His power to change things permanently.
      If we throw money to a problem, atleast 2 things result: a) It will only be a temporary change at best and b) it takes our eyes off of Him, and gets us closer to seeing the things of this world (trusting in horses and chariots)  instead of the things of His Kingdom for solutions. Ultimately, it can be used to blind us completely, so that we become a resident of this earth, instead of one of another city, whose Kingdom and Maker is God, without us even realizing it. Perhaps that is one reason God Himself says we must choose between Him and Money (Mammon) and that we can't have 2 masters. The Master of money is none other than satan himself, and if we straddle the fence between him and God, he will take the lust of the flesh in us, and lure it into his kingdom.
     So, our fight is not against flesh and blood, but it's against powers and principalities of darkness, and spiritual wickedness in high places. To fight this battle, that has already been won, we need to stand on that given fact, and resist the lures of believing in the power of money to save, and instead hold tight to Him and His power which truly saves and brings true resolution to any and all problems, looking forward to the Day when, not just by faith, but by sight, "the kingdoms of men will become the Kingdom of our God and King."
