From Genesis to Revelation, God clearly reveals that He always provides for His people.
The prosperity He has planned for you to enjoy is abundant provision, both materially
and spiritually, enabling you to fulfill your destiny. God doesn't want you to see Him as
stern and uncaring. He wants you to embrace Him as a loving and giving Heavenly
Father who desires to bless His children in every way.
From the time Israel became a nation, God expressed His desire to bless His people. He
Wherefore it shall come to pass, if ye hearken to these judgments, and keep, and
do them, that the Lord thy God shall keep unto thee the covenant and the mercy
which he sware unto thy fathers: And he will love thee, and bless thee, and
multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land,
thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy
sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee. (Deuteronomy 7:12-13)
Does this sound like a God who wants His people to live in need? No! It is God’s plan
for you to have sufficiency in every area of your life, and that includes your finances.
Sufficiency doesn't necessary mean wealth--although God blesses some people in this
way. But it does mean that your needs will be met.
Note that in this passage God declares, "...if you hearken to these judgments". To what
judgments is God referring? He is talking about the principles revealed in His Word.
This includes His plan for divine provision--not a scheme for selfish extravagance, but a
plan for supernatural provision of your needs.
How you perceive God has a tremendous impact on your finances. It will affect how you
view material blessings, how you give to God and others, and how you perceive the rich
and the poor. The Bible reveals that God is an extravagant giver. Everything we know
about Him reflects a lavish, divine generosity. Examples of His giving surround you in
creation, redemption, your abilities, and your personal provision.
Jesus said, "If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how
much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?"
(Matthew 7:11). Jesus reminded people that God was their Father and--like all fathers--
He loves to bless His children with gifts. Then Jesus pointed out that, unlike human
fathers, God will not promise and then fail to deliver. God’s generosity to His children is
far greater than that of your natural parents or even yourself as a parent.
How do you perceive God in terms of giving? Is it time to change your perspective?
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.
