Recently while I was in prayer the Lord laid a message on my heart that
will be a blessing to all who are in need financially. This ministry is
mainly focused on sending you stories and poems that have a deep meaning,
but occasionally the Lord lays a message on my heart that will be more
beneficial than a story. I hope you'll be blessed by what the Lord has
led me to write.
As you may know, we have a prayer ministry with over 1,500 prayer partners
joined with us and we receive more than 1,000 prayer requests per month.
Prayer is mostly asked for physical healing, but the second most request is
for financial breakthrough and to be completely free from debt. We do pray
and believe God to meet every need, but in order for there to be a change,
we need to follow what God's Word says concerning finances.
There are more people in financial trouble today than there ever has been
in all of history. Statistics have shown that the average household is
more than $8,000 in debt. I believe people are not where God wants them
to be because they are not following His laws. We need to remember that
God is no respecter of persons. God does not have favorites. If we comply
with what is written in His Word, then God promises we will reap the
benefits of doing it God's way. (Acts 10:34) (Malachi 3:10-11)
Jesus says in Luke 6:38 "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." Many people have read this scripture and always associate it with
money or financial gain, but money is not mentioned anywhere in the
scripture. Jesus says, give and It will be given unto you good measure,
pressed down, shaken together, and running over. That It is what ever it
is that you need. If you are in need financially, then give to God what
finances that you do have now. If you are in need of a friend, then be a
friend to someone else today. Whatever the need is in your life; give what
you have to God now and He will multiply it and bring it back to you. The
Scripture says, give and It will be given unto you.
Action must be first taken by the sower, and then God will multiply the
seed that has been sown, 30, 60, and 100 fold. Imagine a farmer who goes
out to cut down and take in his harvest. In order for him to have a
harvest, there first must have been seeds planted. It would be foolish for
a farmer to go and collect their harvest if they never planted their seeds
in the beginning of that season. It is the same thing concerning our
financial blessings. (Mark 4:8)
If there has not been a seed sown into the kingdom of God, then we should
not be looking for a harvest to come in. God says in Malachi 3:10 "Bring
all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And
try Me now in this," Says the Lord of hosts, "If I will not open for you
the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will
not be room enough to receive it." God says in this verse, try me and see
if I will not do what I said I would do. God is not a man that He should
lie, so if God said it, then His Word will come to pass. (Numbers 23:19)
If you are in trouble financially and need God to open the windows of
heaven and pour you out a blessing that you cannot contain, then I ask you
to sow into the Church or Ministry that God leads you to, and in doing so,
you should expect to reap the benefits of obeying God's Word. Stay
diligent and steadfast and do not be moved by the circumstances that you
are presently in, but rather know that God in heaven will be faithful in
guarding over the tithes and offerings that you have sown into His work
and He will bring it back to you multiplied in ways that you never thought
possible. (Galatians 6:9) (Malachi 3:11-12) (Isaiah 55:8-9)
Read and meditate on these scriptures:
Malachi 3:8-10 "Will a man rob God? Yet ye have robbed me. But ye say,
Wherein have we robbed thee? In tithes and offerings. Ye are cursed with a
curse: for ye have robbed Me, even this whole nation. Bring ye all the
tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in Mine house, and
prove Me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the
windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be
room enough to receive it."
Deuteronomy 8:18 "But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is He
that giveth thee power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant
which He sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day."
3 John 2 "Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and
be in health, even as thy soul prospereth."
Ephesians 3:19-20 "And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge,
that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God. Now unto Him that is
able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according
to the power that worketh in us."
All scriptures can be found in the King James Version.
Remember: In order for there to be a harvest, there must first be a seed
planted, watered and cared for.
