Breaking the Spirit of Poverty

I have been poor. I have been homeless. It was not fun. I thought at that time that God was mad at me and I had earned my poverty. I was wrong.  I believed the lies of the Enemy for a long time – and stayed broke. It was not fun, not one bit.

God does not give us a spirit of poverty. We were made to be blessed. We are the most blessed poeple on the Earth. God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and love and a sound mind. I had to reject the lies that I had believed and embrace the Truth. God did not make his kids to be broke and wanting. God is a good, good Father and desires to bless us.

 “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” –  1 Timothy 1:7 KJV

Jesus has already paid the price to destroy the works and lies of the Devil. It is finished. Reject the lies. God does not want you to live in want. He desires to give you the desires of your heart. God is for you, not against you.

“He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.” – 1 John 3:8 KJV

God made you to have life, and life more abundantly. He made you to bless you and to prosper you. Our Daddy is not broke and He does not withold any good thing for his kids!

 “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” – 3 John 1:2 KJV

Don’t abuse the blessing. Don’t start asking people for money and airplanes. Stand on the Word and watch what God will do. One thing I have learned is that you don’t have to chase the blessings. They will come to you – because God desires to bless you!

“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth.  And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God:

 “Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country.

“Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.

“Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.

“Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you bewhen you go out.

“The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.

“The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

“The Lord will establish you as a holy people to Himself, just as He has sworn to you, if you keep the commandments of the Lord your God and walk in His ways.  Then all peoples of the earth shall see that you are called by the name of the Lord, and they shall be afraid of you.  And the Lord will grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground, in the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers to give you.  The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.  And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them.  So you shall not turn aside from any of the words which I command you this day, to the right or the left, to go after other gods to serve them.” – Deuteronomy 28: 1-14 KJV

God Delights To Bless You

Praise God! Our Daddy is so amazing!

Pure Glory

by Apostle Gabriel Cross

I believe God is jumping over you, ’cause I believe, “This is it!”
“…Let the LORD be magnified,” who takes pleasure (jumps up and down over you) his servant (this is you) prospering. This is it! (Psalm 35:26)

He delights to bless you more than you want blessings. Note this: true prosperity is wherever you were lacking, you will not lack anymore.

God takes pleasure prospering his servant. To enjoy prosperity involves to thrive, to succeed, to flourish (to grow well), security; ease; peace; wealth; to have good success; family restoration, contentment, emotional wholeness, health, love, joy, peace of mind, a sense of well-being, spiritual sensitivity, an understanding of ourselves, etc.

10 Quotes About How Grace Finds Us

Grace. Sometimes I think I try to hard. It’s like I have to go looking for it, like a buried treasure or something. But, from what I read, it’s not like that. Grace comes searching me out, especially when I need it most.

 

10 WAYS GRACE COMES TO FIND USGrace 2

 

“As long as a believer is worrying about whether or not they are truly saved, they will never grow up in spiritual maturity. It basically guarantees that a Christian will remain stuck in spiritual infancy. And worse, it paints a picture of God that is not only untrue but also unbiblical. It cheapens the gift of salvation – the gift of grace – and make God look like a finicky human.”
― Will Davis Jr., 10 Things Jesus Never Said: And Why You Should Stop Believing Them

 

“His grace is cheapened when you think that He has only forgiven you of your sins up to the time you got saved, and after that point, you have to depend on your confession of sins to be forgiven. God’s forgiveness is not given in installments.”
― Joseph Prince, Unmerited Favor: Depending on Jesus for every success in your life

 

“It’s not the law of religion nor the principles of morality that define our highways and pathways to God; only by the Grace of God are we led and drawn, to God. It is His grace that conquers a multitude of flaws and in that grace, there is only favor. Favor is not achieved; favor is received.”
― C. JoyBell C.

 

“Maybe if we focused on being light & less on the dark, we might actually see things change.”
― Michael M. Rose

 

“Under the law, even the best failed. Under grace, even the worst can be saved!”
― Joseph Prince, Unmerited Favor: Depending on Jesus for every success in your life

 

“God reminds us again and again that things between He and us are forever fixed. They are the rendezvous points where God declares to us concretely that the debt has been paid, the ledger put away, and that everything we need, in Christ we already possess. This re-convincing produces humility, because we realize that our needs are fulfilled. We don’t have to worry about ourselves anymore. This in turn frees us to stop looking out for what we think we need and liberates us to love our neighbor by looking out for what they need.”
― Tullian Tchividjian

“Grace isn’t just forgiveness, it is forgiveness fueled by surrender.”

― Amy E. Spiegel, Letting Go of Perfect: Women, Expectations, and Authenticity

 

“Jesus Himself has already paid the price for your sins, so stop condemning yourself! Today, when you look into the mirror, what do you see? Do you see yourself trapped in all your failings, mistakes, and sins? Or do you see what God sees? My dear friend, when God sees you today, He sees Jesus. Use your eyes of faith and believe that as Jesus is, so are you. In God’s eyes, you are righteous, you are favored, you are blessed, and you are healed. You are freed from all sin, all pangs of guilt, all forms of condemnation, and every bondage of addiction!”
― Joseph Prince, The Power of Right Believing: 7 Keys to Freedom from Fear, Guilt, and Addiction

 

“Where God’s grace takes you, grace will increase your capability and your capacity. Grace will empower you.”
― Edmond Sanganyado, The Good Shepherd: Grace sets back your setbacks

 

“Beloved, pursue Jesus and you will experience wisdom in every area of your life. You cannot try to earn, deserve or study to acquire God’s wisdom. It comes by His unmerited favor. His wisdom will give you good success in your career. It will cause you to succeed as a student, parent or spouse.”
― Joseph Prince, 100 Days of Favor: Daily Readings From Unmerited Favor

What Happens When God Smiles at You?

Do you ever wonder what happens when God smiles at you? I have been learning more about Abba Father these days and that thought crossed my mind. I mean he’s our Daddy right? Daddy’s always smile at their kiddos. I picture a little kid climbing right up in God’s lap. Looking up into His eyes. Now, let that kid be you! Just try it, give Him those big eyes and watch Him smile at you!

Numbers 6:24-26

God bless you and keep you,
God smile on you and gift you,
God look you full in the face
and make you prosper.

Psalm 67:1-7
God, mark us with grace and blessing! Smile! The whole country will see how you work, all the godless nations see how you save. God! Let people thank and enjoy you. Let all people thank and enjoy you. Let all far-flung people become happy and shout their happiness because You judge them fair and square, you tend the far-flung peoples. God! Let people thank and enjoy you. Let all people thank and enjoy you. Earth, display your exuberance! You mark us with blessing, O God, our God. You mark us with blessing, O God. Earth’s four corners—honor him!

Psalm 80:7
God-of-the-Angel-Armies, come back! Smile your blessing smile: That will be our salvation.

Job 33:26-28
“Or, you may fall on your knees and pray—to God’s delight! You’ll see God’s smile and celebrate, finding yourself set right with God. You’ll sing God’s praises to everyone you meet, testifying, ‘I messed up my life— and let me tell you, it wasn’t worth it. But God stepped in and saved me from certain death. I’m alive again! Once more I see the light!’

Psalm 119:57-64
Because you have satisfied me, God, I promise to do everything you say. I beg you from the bottom of my heart: smile, be gracious to me just as you promised. When I took a long, careful look at your ways, I got my feet back on the trail you blazed. I was up at once, didn’t drag my feet, was quick to follow your orders. The wicked hemmed me in—there was no way out— but not for a minute did I forget your plan for me. I get up in the middle of the night to thank you; your decisions are so right, so true—I can’t wait till morning! I’m a friend and companion of all who fear you, of those committed to living by your rules. Your love, God, fills the earth! Train me to live by your counsel.

I Smile
Artist: Kirk Franklin
Album: Hello Fear

Today is a new day but there is no sunshine
Nothing but clouds and it’s dark in my heart
And it feels like a cold night

Today is a new day, but where are my blue skies?
Where is the love and the joy that you promised me?
Tell me it’s all right
(I’ll be honest with you)

I almost gave up, but a power that I can’t explain
Fell from Heaven like a shower now
(When I think I’m much better I’m gon’ be when this is over)

I smile, even though I’m hurt, I smile
I know God is working so I smile
Even though I’ve been here for a while
I smile, smile

It’s so hard to look up when you’ve been down
Sure would hate to see you give up now
You look so much better when you smile, so smile

THE MESSAGE (MSG)
