This is an example of two opposite extreme financial systems- one is an earthly System and the other is a Kingdom System.
The world’s system is cursed and under the power of Satan. It goes back to the fall in the Garden of Eden, when God spoke to Adam.
This is what God said to Adam. And to the man he said, “Since you listened to your wife and ate from the tree whose fruit I commanded you not to eat, the ground is cursed because of you. All your life you will struggle to scratch a living from it. It will grow thorns and thistles for you, though you will eat of its grains. By the sweat of your brow will you have food to eat until you return to the ground from which you were made. For you were made from dust, and to dust you will return.” — Genesis 3:17-19
Now that’s a pretty serious curse which makes everything in the world hard to accomplish. Things are hard to get done on earth because everything we do there, is actively resisted. Complications and distractions constantly rise up against us, to slow us down and drag us off course.
Now let’s contrast that path of difficulty and hard work, with the many blessings listed in the first part of Deuteronomy chapter 28.
“The Lord will give you prosperity in the land he swore to your ancestors to give you, blessing you with many children, numerous livestock, and abundant crops. The Lord will send rain at the proper time from his rich treasury in the heavens and will bless all the work you do. You will lend to many nations, but you will never need to borrow from them.” — Deuteronomy 28:11-12
In the Kingdom of God, his people are blessed. Not only is there less resistance inside the heavenly system, but people working and operating in that system, are so blessed that this blessing flows in abundance to bless others around them.
So let’s decree and agree with heaven today, that we are blessed, and we receive all that God has for us! We receive prosperity over the land He promises us, we receive blessings over our children, we receive the abundance in resources, and we believe that we will be lenders- not borrowers, in Jesus mighty name!
