The abundance and prosperity of God are the results of putting to work His principles and laws. When these principles and laws are followed they produce predictable results. When you plant seeds the predictable results would be to expect a harvest. The law of seed time and harvest is a law of multiplication of what ever is sown. It's a natural law that God put in place.
A lack of knowledge about abundance and prosperity is the reason for poverty. Economic prosperity or lack there of can effect your health and wellness in mind, body, and spirit. Financial Stress effects your mind and emotions including fear and worry. Stress unchecked can effect physical health Some blame God because of lack which in turn will affect their spiritual wellness as well.
Gods Word teaches how to produce abundance and prosperity. As a Christian you have the promises of God to guide you. Based on the authority of the Word of God you can find out what God's will is for you and how scriptures can walk you out of lack into more than enough.
God demonstrates this principle as Jesus teaches His disciples how to over come lack. In Luke 9:2-3“ He (Jesus) sent them to preach the kingdom of God and to heal the sick. And He said to them, "Take nothing for the journey, neither staffs nor bag nor bread nor money; and do not have two tunics apiece.” NKJV
The disciples went on a journey and took with then no provisions. What happened to them? In Luke 22:35 we find the answer... And He (Jesus) said to them, "When I sent you without money bag, knapsack, and sandals, did you lack anything?" So they said, "Nothing." NKJV
The disciples were put in a position by Jesus where they had to rely on God alone. They had to trust God to take care of every need they had and they watched as God provided for them. They learned a valuable lesson;...' Wholeheartedly lean on God alone and you will lack nothing. All your needs will be satisfied.'
Sometimes God may put you in a position where you will have to lean on Him alone. Don't be afraid if this should happen. Keep your eyes firmly fixed on Him and He will lead you through it. What it is is an opportunity for you to grow in your faith. You will be able to see and experience the hand of God working for you.
God has given to each one of us the measure of faith. It's inside of you even now. Exercise it and it will grow. But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Heb 11:5 NKJV.
Relying on God alone is a monumental principle of the Kingdom of God. It can be applied to every area of your life. It is the first thing that must be understood for success. When you learn to rely on Jesus to produce fruit in your life - you will flourish.
Faith is the currency of the Kingdom of God. It is how you receive everything from God. God is where your ideas will come from. He will guide you as you develop those ideas into ways of abundance and prosperity. Be open to new ideas as you trust God to guide you.
The disciples were willing to trust Jesus and do as He said. When God tells you to do something He takes the responsibility to provide for it - they took no provisions with them. As they trusted God they realize that all you need is God. For out of God flows all your supply. They had good success as they went about doing the Fathers will - even the devils were subject to them.
The principles of the kingdom of God may not make sense to the natural mind. But God is able to change bad situations into something very good.
When you have so little to start with how can little add up to more than enough?
In all four Gospels a miracle is recorded when Jesus asked the Father to bless five barley loaves and two small fish. When the Father blessed it, a multiplication happened so great that it fed five thousand men plus women and children.
They had eaten until they were all full. Then left over fragments were gathered together and twelve baskets were filled. So little became so much! Nothing is impossible with God. Natural laws must give way to the laws of the kingdom of God.
The boy who gave to Jesus his lunch of the five loaves and two fish could have likely been rewarded with the twelve baskets of leftovers. God always multiplies blessings back to us. You can not out give God.
If you give something away you would naturally anticipate having a loss. But in the Kingdom of God it's just the opposite. It IS more blessed to give than receive.
You could say it this way;
It is more "profitable" to give than to receive.
This is why God said. “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom.” Abundance and prosperity! God WANTS to bless you so you can be a blessing to others which in turn blesses you... It's like a perpetual circle.
The principles of the Kingdom of God work but they are usually opposite of this world.
In the world to give something
away causes you to loose something but in the kingdom of heaven to give something
away causes you to gain something more.
(Did I just see a light go on in your head?) It IS more blessed to give than receive!
And God continues teaching in Luke,...”For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you." Luke 6:38 NKJV
So we can conclude that if you need to get rid of some lack in your life, than be a blessing to someone else for the Gospels sake and it will be multiplied back to you.
Mark 10: 29 It is written,”So Jesus answered and said, "Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My sake and the gospel's, who shall not receive a hundredfold, now in this time — houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions — and in the age to come, eternal life.
God wants to reward you with abundance and prosperity in the here and now as well as in the life here after. God warns us we will have persecutions here but the things we go through are only like basic training exercises. Training is good, many may not be able to handle material abundance and prosperity well without it.
There are reasons why some blessings have not yet manifested. Seek God to find out what can hinder receiving the blessing. Receiving begins with believing God.
God wants us all to enjoy all aspects of the abundant life. The best is a life that is living and walking daily with God Himself. Jesus said, "I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." John 10:10
In the Old Testament under the Law, if you could keep the Law , it would result in a blessing for you, although it was a work of the flesh. Those who kept the Law could receive wages so to speak. It was a covenant, like a contract with God.
But now under the New Covenant under Grace we have even better promises. Under Grace we are Blessed even when we don't deserve it because Jesus has perfectly kept the law for us. To receive Jesus is to receive Grace.
If you have never received the Greatest Gift ever offered to you, don't wait, receive Jesus as your Savior now. Give Him your life and He will give you His life eternal. He wants you to learn of Him so He can pour out on you all His favor including abundance and prosperity .
