Jesus & the Miracle of Debt Cacnellation…

God loves you and He cares for every detail in our lives, including our finances. A miracle of debt cancellation doesn’t sound very religious. We accept the miracle of salvation for the grossest sinners. We rejoice even when those who have abused their health are miraculously healed by grace.

Why is it hard for many to accept a financial miracle?

When we see tears flowing down the face of a small child who was blind and now can see, we respond “Oh Jesus is wonderful!” When we hear someone who was bound by addictions testify, we exclaim “God is a good God”.

It seems we easily identify God with miracles of salvation and healing. But financial miracles and supernatural debt cancellation sounds carnal to some, and yet there are many such examples in the Bible. 

  • Those who labored with Nehemiah to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem received debt cancellation (Neh. 5:1-12).
  • Onesimus, a debt-ridden slave, saw his debt cancelled (Philemon v. 18-19).
  • A widow woman received wisdom from the Lord and her debt was cancelled (2 Kings 4:1-7).
