More than enough - Part 2
As promised we will share with you the second part to being blessed...
The second part is about what you do and how you live. God gives wisdom, favour, blessing, opportunity, and divine power to us so we can get wealth (Deut. 8:18). Our acquisition of wealth confirms His covenant with us. So we play a big part in seeing the blessing of the Lord manifest in our lives. And it starts with our mindsets.
Our minds need to be continuously renewed and our expectations raised for what God has planned for us. We have to stop believing that wealth and abundance are something evil that God doesn’t want us to have. When we misinterpret verses like “for the love of money is the root of all evil” (1 Tim. 6:10), we throw the baby out with the bath water. This verse is not about remaining poor and needy, and as a result becoming holier. This verse is about idolatry and covetousness or lust. Idolising and lusting after money puts it in God’s place as our source, which opens the door to all kinds of evil that comes as a result of selfishness and greed.
This is where many of us have been trained to stop, concerning wealth. We put it all in the one category, under “evil” and something God doesn’t want for us. We need to pray for deliverance in this area, and this is a direction where we feel God wants to take you. Before we can receive the full benefits of the blessings of God, we need to be in a position to receive and sustain them.
Wealth and riches are part of the covenant blessings of God. They are part of His plan for those who love and obey Him. His plans are good and not evil. He plans to prosper us and bring us to an expected end (Jer. 29:11 KJV).
We need to understand and receive the truth that there are real benefits to walking in righteousness and in the wisdom of God. It is us who need to take the limitations off God and realise His blessing will overtake every area of our lives.
Why would He increase us in every area except finances? There are no exceptions when it comes to the areas in which God will bless. Any kind of exception is man-made and a manifestation of our own limitations of what God will do.
In order for us to receive blessings, we need to be set free to believe in an unlimited God who will bless us with more than enough.
