Poverty must be OVERCOME!
I have found that at certain places in my life, I need breakthrough in areas of prosperity in order to advance! As we have had many levels of increase, a pattern has emerged that when we want the next level of growth, we have to have the next level of spiritual breakthrough.
Poverty must be DEFEATED as we move into new levels of growth! Promotion comes with an increase. An impoverished life is not easily prospered. It is not the heart of God for any of His sons and daughters to remain in lack.
Resources, provisions, and room for increase are critical as one advances in their life.
There are many kingdom principals found in the Bible.
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich. 2 Corinthians 8:9
Poverty is a spirit which produces mindsets as a lifestlye is forced upon people. This spirit is from darkness, producing despair and lack. It can effect a person, a family, a bloodline, or a region.
Jesus spoke about being fruitful!
Promise to Stand on and Confess! When we believe and STAND UPON promises in the Word of God, we will eventually ” obtain” that promise.
Remain in me, and I will remain in you. For a branch cannot produce fruit if it is severed from the vine, and you cannot be fruitful unless you remain in me. Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing. –John 15:4-5
This word contains a promise, ” Those who remain in Me, will produce much fruit.”
Producing fruit is the opposite of poverty! Poverty is lack, barreness, dry seasons and places. Prosperity however causes us to produce fruit. The types of fruit Jesus spoke of was the Fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5.
Fruitfulness as a lifestyle pertains to many areas of life. 3John 2 speaks of prosperity being connected to our soul health. Health and wholeness is the will of God the Father for all who believe.
Jesus said, I come to give life, and life ABUNDANTLY.
Abundance is how much fruit is in your life. Life being; health, vitality, energy. Also pertains to resources, relationships, character.
Prosperity starts with changing our thinking, our heart and our words are all connected. Here are some great principals and words to come into agreement with.
The Soul of a man
Whoever has a bountiful eye will be blessed, for he shares his bread with the poor. Prov. 22:9
A bountiful eye! The eye is the lamp to the soul! How we see depends largely on the condition of our soul, our inner man.
Many want to walk in all that God has for them; yet do not understand the key to prosperity is the soul.
The soul is made up of mind, will, emotions. As these areas “prosper” come up higher in perspective, thinking, believing other areas of life follow.
•How can one prosper thinking? By knowledge
•How can one prosper emotions? By healing and maturing
•How can one prosper their will? By true revelation of biblical submission
Our perception of who we are, and who God is are critical when desiring to prosper. I am not just speaking of financial prosperity, rather also relationships, health, establishment, intelligence.
Fear hinders and blocks Prosperity
Fear causes lack to be attached to a person’s life. The opposite of faith, and the contaminated of faith. Fear is cast out as we mature in God’s love; as we mature in receiving His love.
Surrender to the Spirit
