Disobedient Saints Will Walk in Debt

In verse 15 of this same chapter, the writer makes an abrupt turnaround. He speaks to the disobedient saints, the ones who will not walk in His ways. He tells them they will walk in curses instead of blessings.

But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee.
Deuteronomy 28:15

The list of curses goes on for fifty-three verses. Among them, one thing really stands out. Those who walk contrary to God’s will, walk in debt.
The stranger that is within thee shall get up above thee very high;
and thou shalt come down very low.

He shall lend to thee, and thou shalt not lend to him: he shall be the head,
and thou shalt be the tail.
Deuteronomy 28:43-44

With this information you know God wants you to be debt free. When you have a specific word from God, you also have His assurance that you can fulfill it. He promises that His Word will empower you to accomplish His will.
