Would you love for God's blessing to saturate your life so completely that you don’t have enough room to receive them? Would you like for them to overflow in your life beyond all that you can think or imagine?
The Bible is the greatest book in the world regarding money management. God has given us many promises throughout the Scriptures regarding the topic of prosperity for His children, who have historically been very prosperous. Do you believe that you can never out give God? The Bible says that He owns the cattle on a thousand hills and He delights in your good fortune.
Consider Abraham. The book of Genesis tells us that he was rich in cattle, silver, and gold. Solomon was the richest man in the world. By today’s standards, he would have been a trillionaire. His horse stables were made of gold. Now that’s rich!
“Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” — 3 John 1:2
Jesus gave us 38 parables in the Bible; 16 deal with how to manage our possessions. There are 500 verses in the New Testament dealing with prayer, and less than 500 discussing faith. However, there are more than 2,000 verses telling us how to manage our possessions.
The Scriptures make it very clear... You will either master your money, or your money will master you! The choice is yours.
Would you like for God’s prosperity to explode in your life? I’m going to give you some fundamental concepts, based 100% on the Word of God, about prosperity that will completely revolutionize your thinking about money.
Deuteronomy 8:18 tells us, “And you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” You will never prosper until you believe that it’s God’s will for you to prosper.
The difference between living a life of prosperity and a life of poverty is a simple choice!
Luke 6:38 says, “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”
Your financial success tomorrow will be determined by your obedience to God’s Word today. If you plant a seed at 5:00 p.m. this afternoon, it won’t grow into a stalk of corn by daylight tomorrow. Today you make the choice to honor God with your giving so that He can open the windows of heaven and bless your future. Continue to walk steadfastly in your decision to honor God with your finances.
Every time God gives you the opportunity to give, He is also giving you the opportunity to increase. Let go of what is in your hand, so that God can bless you with what He holds in His. What He has in store for you (in His hand) is far greater than what you could ever do on your own. Your provision is determined by your obedience to His Word.
Consider the spiritual realm. How did Jesus come to earth? The answer is seedtime and harvest. The seed of the woman (Mary) shall crush the head of the serpent (Satan). The Holy Ghost planted the seed in Mary’s womb, and the kingdom of Satan was forever defeated.
Consider the physical realm. How did you get here? Seedtime and harvest. These two events were separated by nine months.
Consider the financial realm. When you plant your seed (tithe and offering), God not only meets your need, but He rains down blessings on every area of your life. He is the God of more than enough!
Give, and it shall be given unto you. If something inside of you resents giving...it’s not of God. Giving is the only proof you have that the cancer of greed has not consumed you. The day is coming when all you will have is what you have given to God.
Everything that God controls...GIVES!
The sun gives light. Clouds give rain. God gave His only Son that we might be redeemed. What are YOU giving to HIM?
If you think that you are so far behind financially that you will never catch up, just start giving. God can make it up to you by giving you more than enough! He can give back to you what the enemy has stolen. What you may have lost in a business failure, He can restore. Your only hope of catching up is planting your seed in the Kingdom of God beginning today.
When you give to God, the only thing that can happen is for you to gain on every level. Beloved, He wants to prosper you in all things. Are you willing to trust Him with the little that is in your hand, for the countless blessings that are in His?
I challenge you to “try” Him! Give on a regular basis. Render unto God what is already His and wait for the tidal wave of blessings to come your way! He never makes a promise without giving you the provision. Taste and see that the Lord our God is good
