The Power of the Blessed Life
About nine months ago, the Lord said to me that 2017 would be a year of increase and advance. He told me that this was a season when His dreams for us would come to pass. Even though you may not know where all your provision is coming from, you need to understand that he always provides for his dreams in our lives. Just start to walk toward the dream he has given you, and then watch the provision come to help fulfill it. Many of you have been hearing from the Lord. He has been speaking to you about a new day and a new time. He has told you that he has new things in store for your life. Some of you are believing for new houses, or new vehicles, and new jobs. Others are believing for a Godly spouse and children. God is the one who blesses us with these things in our lives. He has a ministry for you. He has a business for you. He has possessions for you. I will probably have people angry with me now: because I have mentioned all these things; and it might sound a little too much like prosperity teaching. Some may unfollow my ministry, because I dared to say God has great things in store. A poverty mindset cannot see the blessings of God. It only sees what it lacks. Lack is not from God. Want is not from God. Psalm 23:1 says, “The Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want.” If you are living in want you are not in God. Psalm 34:10 says, “The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the LORD shall not want any good thing.” When we are in Christ we will not lack. When we live in the shelter of God’s presence, his blessing comes upon our lives. Blessing includes everything that you need to live a good life. It isn’t the blessing to live in sickness, poverty or without hope. God wants to inspire you. He wants to give you a vision, so that you will live an abundant life. So many of you have dreams in your heart. Many of those dreams come from God. However, you may not know how to get from A to B. You don’t know how to move from the idea that was planted in you to the actual fulfilment of the dream. God knows how to do it. You can seek him for the answer. God wants to prosper you from the work of your hands. He doesn’t want you to live in poverty. He wants you to live in the fulfillment of your dreams. Another problem that many face is their ungodly beliefs and confessions. I met a man yesterday who told me that he could never afford to travel internationally with his wife on a ministry trip. They have been together for 25 years, and this belief has stopped them from doing what might have been something very special in their lives. When you live believing that you can’t, then don’t be surprised when you don’t. This man was a minister and said that this meant that he was to be poor. I am also a minister, but I refuse to be poor. Poverty is a spirit that I will not come into agreement with. Poverty is the limitation of man. Prosperity is the atmosphere of heaven. We must have our thoughts renewed. We can’t allow the way our old nature thinks to influence the blessings that God wants to give to us. The Israelites were told by God (when they entered the Promised Land), that they would live in cities and houses they did not build, and that they would have a rich stock of goods that they did not earn. God was going to give it to them (Deuteronomy 6:11). This is the thought that you must get into your mind. The poverty mindset that has limited you receiving what God has for you must end. Your God can make all grace abound in your life. He can prosper you and give you a bright future. He can give you houses and stock them with the finest goods. If you say this doesn’t really matter well I would think that 99% of the world disagrees with you. I met an angel in England last February. I asked him his name. He said, “Edified to do anything!” This was not just a name but an impartation. He was telling me that the dreams that God has for me were possible, because nothing was impossible with God. He was telling me that God was empowering me to enter the greatest dreams that He has for my life. It strengthened me to hear heaven speak. God wants to give you a bright future too. He doesn’t want you to toil under the curse of this life. You are a son or a daughter of the Most High God. He wants to bless you with every blessing that comes in Christ Jesus. These are spiritual blessings and there are natural blessings. When your heart is renewed in Christ and your thoughts are transformed God positions you to receive more than you ever did before. My deepest prayer for you today is that you will prosper in every way that God wants you to prosper. I pray for all mindsets that are not from God to fall from your life. I pray that you will learn to receive what God has in store for you. I declare the blessing of the Lord will make you rich and add no sorrow to it.
