Lack and indebtedness has become a major concern in so many homes now, especially in this period of severe economic melt down. It is the worse in 70years and many Christians are abandoning their faith in God and hanging unto other sources, thus going deep down into the danger zone.
At some points in the history of mankind, there have been times of difficulties and seasons of severe scarcity and lack. Jesus said; in this world you shall face tribulations, but cheer up for I have overcome the world.
As Christians, God’s plan for us is to make us praises in the land and not for us to be frustrated. We live in this world, but we are not of this world, so it’s our time to reign.
There is a way by God to get out of life issues. We shall be looking into a few of them
Worship: In Gen. 12:1-20 tells the story of Abraham. At this time, there was a grievous famine so terrible that Abraham left and journeyed into Egypt. Egypt represents a type of the world: policies and standards. The world represents lies and deceits where the Spirit of God is not in operation.
In Gen.13:1-14 Abraham returned to the Lord his God. He went back to God where left Him, back to true worship, to the alter of fellowship and God prospered him greatly.
In times like this, all we need to do is to return to our God. If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways,...2Chr.7:14
Faith: Isaac, the son of Abraham in Gen. 26:1-14 was face with a similar situation as his father was, but God said to Isaac never to go down to Egypt and Isaac obeyed. Isaac hadfaith in the Lord his God. He worked hard and invested in his business not considering the situation. In that same year, he made a profit of 100%. His faith in God pulled him through.
This story should fire up faith in your heart concerning your business and that vision you have nursed all this while. You can still pull through with faith in your heart; you can reap a 100% and more. Let the voice of the Lord direct you this season. It is your season to prosper. Don’t give up!
Giving: Someone may be wondering, how can I give when am in lack. Let me tell you; the best time togive is in the time of little. Come to think of it; a field cannot yield if it is not cultivated. No matter how anointed you are, it is impossible for the seed in your hand to multiply itself, but except it is sown.
Jesus says, give and it shall be given to you, good measure, pressed down, shaking together, and running over shall men give unto your bosom.
Whom To Give
Give to God
Give to the brethren
Give to the Prophet of God
Give to anybody in need.
Read: Ecclesiastes 11:1-6
The Prophetic: Now there cried a woman of the wives of the sons of the prophet unto Elisha…2kings 4:1-7. This woman’ story was rather a pathetic one. She wasn’t just in lack, but also seriously in debt and her creditor was letting hell loose
This woman was wise enough to run to the man of God. Yes, the men of God are there to help us, but you can also search the word of God to declare upon your life.
Elisha spoke prophetically into her life and she believed. Her story turned around as she became a big business woman (oil merchant).
Believe God and His prophet, and shall be established and prosper 2Chr.20:20
God help me to succeed in my field
God help me to understand your voice
God strengthen me in my inner man
