You can PROSPER in a time of a Nations economic downturn!
God has set a system in place that no matter what country, city or time you are living in you can always prosper and live in abundant life with all of your needs met. So that you can have plenty to be a distributor of the goodness and the blessing of God to others.
What is this system you may ask… Or I’ve tried this before nothing seems to be working. God has done his part through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ and gave you that same victory in every arena of life including your finances and prosperity once you make Jesus your Lord and Savior. The Bible tells us to consider our ways.
“Will a man rob or defraud God? Yet you rob and defraud Me. But you say, In what way do we rob or defraud You? [You have withheld your] tithes and offerings. You are cursed with the curse, for you are robbing Me, even this whole nation. [Lev. 26:14-17.] Bring all the tithes (the whole tenth of your income) into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and prove Me now by it, says the Lord of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it. [Mal. 2:2.] And I will rebuke the devourer [insects and plagues] for your sakes and he shall not destroy the fruits of your ground, neither shall your vine drop its fruit before the time in the field, says the Lord of hosts. And all nations shall call you happy and blessed, for you shall be a land of delight, says the Lord of hosts.”
Malachi 3:8-12 AMPC
Tithing which is the first 10% of your income goes to the kingdom of God. When you withhold it you become a thief. I didn’t say that. The word of God says that. His word is the Supreme authority for every born again believer. Then the door is open for Satan to steal from you.
However when you become a tither and make it your priority to give God the first 10% of all of your increase satan is rebuked and anything that would devour your finances. Once you start tithing and tithe faithfully you enact a spiritual principle and a law that works every time everywhere no matter where he may live no matter what the financial climate is.
2. Give over and above your tithe and give offerings.
Giving and receiving is a spiritual law and it works in all arenas for Christians and non-Christians alike. You might say to me but Melissa you don’t understand the nation that I live in the dollar is failing. businesses are closing, there’s no way even in the natural that I can prosper. There is another really that controls this realm and you can enact a financial blessing by obeying the word of God. The law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus makes you free from the law of sin and death. Just like Isaac did. Lets take a look.
“AND THERE was a famine in the land, other than the former famine that was in the days of Abraham. And Isaac went to Gerar, to Abimelech king of the Philistines. And the Lord appeared to him and said, Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land of which I will tell you. Dwell temporarily in this land, and I will be with you and will favor you with blessings; for to you and to your descendants I will give all these lands, and I will perform the oath which I swore to Abraham your father. And I will make your descendants to multiply as the stars of the heavens, and will give to your posterity all these lands (kingdoms); and by your Offspring shall all the nations of the earth be blessed, or by Him bless themselves, [Gen. 22:18; Acts 3:25, 26; Gal. 3:16.]
Then Isaac sowed seed in that land and received in the same year a hundred times as much as he had planted, and the Lord favored him with blessings. And the man became great and gained more and more until he became very wealthy and distinguished;”
Genesis 26:1-4, 12-13 AMPC
Giving causes you to operate in an opposite spirit of the world which is generosity instead of hoarding things up for yourself or holding onto things in fear. You can see here that when Isaac sowed in a time of famine he received 100 fold in the same year. I like what the amplified translation says here. It says he became great and gained more and more until he became very wealthy and distinguished! That’s God’s plan for you! He wants to use you as an advertisement of his goodness and make you a divine distribution center for the goodness of God and his kingdom and to others.
3. Say something different.
You can’t say what the world is saying and expect dad’s results. Acting on the word includes tithing, giving over and above your ties and offering, and also making sure your mouth which is the writer of your life is in agreement with God’s plan for prosperity with you. What does that mean? That means you can’t be saying I don’t know what I’m gonna do… I don’t know how I’m gonna make it… How am I going to pay my bills… How is my business going to survive… You can’t say what the world is saying and expect gods results. Acting on the word includes typing, giving over and above your ties offering, and also making sure your mouth which is the writer of your life is in agreement with gods plan for prosperity with you. What does that mean? That means you can’t be saying I don’t know what I’m gonna do… I don’t know how I’m gonna make it… How am I going to pay my bills… How was my business going to survive… No! You must say what God says about you and your situation. Remember life and death is in the power of your tongue. So that means you must say no matter the circumstances my God meets and supplies all of my needs according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
“II Corinthians 9:8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work...”
Do this and you will be blessed! Remember you must be a doer of the word and not a hearer only deceiving your own self. You don’t have to struggle and you don’t have to go without. Jesus already paid the price you now cooperate with him and what he’s done for you and enforce it in the earth and where you live.
