We Can Only See In The Right Now, But God Is Not Limited In The Right Now. What Do You Do When Every Time You Get A Financial Breakthrough There Is Another Setback Waiting On The Other Side?
We Can Only See In The Right Now, But God Is Not Limited In The Right Now, God Is Way Down The Road In The Not Yet, He Then Moves The Not Yet To Here Is Your Harvest. If you keep walking with God, He is taking you to where you can’t even see it`. He will provide the seed. He will do it according to His nature, when you try to figure out how He is going to bless you, you start limiting God.
2 Corinthians: Chapter 9. Verse 10. God identifies Himself as the supplier, He provides, there is a flow in these scriptures, it is through His name that He reveals His nature., it’s something about a part of His name that meet our needs, to bless, God is God, blessing is what He does, it’s a part of His name, One of His name is Jehovah Jireh, He is our provider.
Although the Bible is very clear in 1 Timothy that “the love of money is the root of all evil,” it is also clear from Psalm 11:1-3 that “wealth and riches are for those that fear the Lord”.
It is God’s desire to see His children move in great authority through building and distributing wealth. But what do you do when you can’t even get past living paycheck to paycheck?
What do you do when every time you get a financial breakthrough there is another setback waiting on the other side? What do you do when you just feel like your finances are cursed and getting stable is a distant miracle?
God doesn’t intend for us to struggle financially our entire lives. There are seasons of struggle, however, that we all go through. Whether we’re just young and naïve or we’re a bit older and perhaps undisciplined with our finances, it’s not uncommon for people to find themselves in financial distress. God’s plan is for us to manage our resources though, not the other way around. It is possible to get out of the prison of debt and live lives of financial freedom!
I have been through seasons of want and of plenty. I’d like to share with you some of the things we learned as a way of offering you encouragement.
My husband and I are stewards, not owners.
That’s the first and overriding principle we have to recognize. Everything we have is a gift from God. We have a tendency to act like we “earned” things, but that’s not the truth. Without the time, talents and providence of God, we wouldn’t have anything!
Everything belongs to God. He simply allows us the great privilege of caring for it. And one of the best ways we can do that is to not be wasteful.
In John , after Jesus fed the multitude, He told the people, Gather up now the fragments (the broken pieces that are left over) so that nothing may be lost or wasted. Jesus could have simply done another miracle to provide for the cleanup after his miraculous meal, but instead he taught people about the importance of making the most out of what God has provided.
Jesus also taught in Matthew 25 that God will put us through “tests” to see if we can handle greater blessings. His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness.’ (Matthew 25:21 NIV)
God isn’t going to release new blessings into our lives until we first learn to manage the ones He’s already provided. If you’re waiting for your financial breakthrough, it could be that God isn’t finished preparing you yet.
As you learn to be a better steward with what you have, God will, little by little, give you more. When you start using the resources you have to bless others and bring glory and honor to Him, He’ll bless you with more so that His glory can multiply!
That’s why it’s so important to keep God first. If we don’t do that, we won’t be getting very much enjoyment out of our financial blessings, and it’s very likely that they won’t keep coming very much longer either.
Do what you can do and then say whatever level I am at I will bless the Lord, and trust God do the rest.
Bless to be a blessing. Whenever When God speaks to you about planting a financial seed, He has a harvest for you coming. Where there is no vision people perish.
Because of the vision people will not perish and without the people the vision will perish, just say I will bless the Lord. We don’t want to sit up and beg we want to trust the vision; we want to trust God. Because of a vision lives will change, just ask God what do You want me to do? Whatever He speaks to you be obedient, and then say I will bless the Lord. There are things you are praying for, family and friends; God has given us the opportunity to bless others.
Pray big prayers, big goals, If you ever impact how big God is. 1. Seed for food (Bread); He is our provider to remind us that. 2. He also gives us seed for sowing. It is only the seed that you sow that God promise to multiply. Malachi: I will open up the windows of heavens. God say you put me first and I will fill your life with good measure and then I will press down and make room for more so that it will run over so that you can bless others. We learn how to thank God for the little things. Blessing is what He does.
You must stand upon God’s Word and pray these things through. It is not God’s will for you to live in despair, or for the poverty mentality to have its way with you. Here are some prayers to pray to break financial curses and increase financial blessings over your life.
Father, I stand upon Philippians which states, “My God will meet my needs according to the riches of His glory in Christ Jesus”. I thank you that I do not have to put trust in my ability to meet my needs, but I put my trust in Your ability to effectively work through me.
Father, I stand upon Psalm 34:10 that declare “the lions may grow weak and hungry but those who seek the Lord shall lack no good thing.” Lord as I seek your face I believe that I and my family will lack no good thing.
These are just a couple of prayers that are infused with the Word of God. There are many more in the Bible. Continue to trust God as you journey through the season of testing in your finances. Trust His word and know that He is not a man that He should lie. He will come through for you as you obey Him.
