Consider your financial background. Think about the money habits that your parents modeled while you were growing up. Consider what you learned about how to manage money from them, and what financial decisions you may have made as a result. Learn from your parents’ successes and mistakes, and ask God to help you move forward managing your own money wisely. 13 Ways to Recover from Financial Setbacks part1

Confess your mess. Be honest with God and yourself about the true state of your finances. Confess whatever sins you committed that contributed to your financial problems. Pray for the wisdom and self-control you need to make better financial decisions from now on.
Reach out for help. Get professional financial counseling or at least financial advice from someone you trust who manages money well. Ask for prayers and emotional support from family and friends as you recover. 13 Ways to Recover from Financial Setbacks part1

Deal with desires. Realize that, while desires themselves aren’t bad, they become a problem in your life if you give them the power to rule you rather than keeping them in check so you can follow where God leads you. God doesn’t want you to feel deprived; He wants you to be free to enjoy the good gifts He gives you. But desires that run wild and put you in debt take away that freedom. So pray for the right perspective on your desires and the discipline you need to control them so they won’t control you.
