As you implement the knowledge you have gained this month and apply it to your life,
your ministry, and your finances, God will continue to multiply your resources. The
Greek word for multiplication is plethuno, which means, "to increase, to cause to
multiply." Within God's cycle of divine provision, supernatural multiplication
continuously occurs. Here are some specific guidelines to assure that you continue to
experience divine provision.
Look to God as your source. Don't think that just because you are living in a poor
nation or working at a low paying job that God cannot provide abundantly for you. If
you live in a developing nation, don't look to America for funding of your ministry
because when the United States suffers economically, you will also. Some of the greatest
churches in the world are being built in economically-challenged nations without help
from other regions. Don't look to your rich friends or family for provision. Don't look to
your job, your boss, your investments, your talents or abilities. God is your source.
Understand that God uses need to direct your life. As you learned in the story of
Elijah, when provision at Cherith Brook ceased, Elijah was directed to where new
provision awaited. When the brook runs dry financially or spiritually where you are,
perhaps it is time to relocate your residence, redirect your ministry, or attain a new job.
God provided for Elijah "there"--in the place to which he was directed by the Holy Spirit.
Where God guides, He provides. Don't spend the rest of your life sitting by a dried-up
brook lamenting over the fact that resources are no longer flowing to you.
Remember that the key to increase is release. Give what you have, and God will
increase it (Proverbs 11:24-25). Faithfully give your tithes and offerings. Give of your
time and talents. As you give, so shall you receive.
Never forget what God has done for you in the past. Don't ever forget how God
blessed you and brought you out of financial and spiritual bondage. Remember His
faithfulness and how He has fulfilled every promise.
Be diligent in applying scriptural financial principles. If you are not familiar with
these, obtain the Harvestime publication entitled "Divine Provision". Divine provision
does not mean you will never have financial challenges. Jesus was clear that "In the
world ye shall have tribulation", but He said, "...be of good cheer; I have overcome the
world" (John 16:33). Jesus delegated to His followers power over all the power of the
enemy, and this includes the enemy's diabolical power to steal finances, provision, and
blessings from you (Luke 10:19).
Continue to seek the Lord. It was said of King Uzziah, "...as long as he sought the
Lord, God made him to prosper" (2 Chronicles 26:5). Sadly, "...when he was strong, his
heart was lifted up to his destruction: for he transgressed against the Lord his God" (2
Chronicles 26:16), Learn from this example.
My FATHER, My God, this year let my life reflect the blessing of the Lord, I shall not be static, I decree PROGRESS, FAVOR, HONOR, AND INFLUENCE are my portion. My life is SALTED, My speech is SALTED, My Home and Business are SALTED in the name of Jesus.
