Blessed to Be a Blessing
Financial three step plans, money making formulas and sowing and reaping scriptures can all be well and good, but if you have a poverty stronghold lodged and hidden in your mind, you may never enter your earthly wealthy place. If you feel you might have a poverty mental stronghold keeping you from your earthly wealthy place and you want to be set free, then this article is for you.
Gary was a Christian who had been taught in church that it was good to worship and serve God, but to have an abundance of "things" was not acceptable. The "prosperity message" was taboo. However, he eventually discovered that according to God's Word, financial prosperity was the Christian's inheritance and we are blessed to be a blessing.
"Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in good health, even as thy soul prospereth" (3 John 2).
So Gary began to implement all the prosperity truths he had learned, but instead of getting out of debt and enjoying the abundant life, he continued to flounder financially and stayed in debt. Fortunately, one day the Lord revealed to him the problem. All the earlier teaching on how it was wrong to seek prosperity had become a poverty stronghold in his mind that kept him out of his God-ordained wealthy place. The Lord revealed to him how to destroy that stronghold with God's mighty powerful weapon, the Word of God.
"Is not my word like as a fire? saith the Lord; and like a hammer that breaketh the rock in pieces" (Jeremiah 23:29)?
The Lord's instructions were simple. To destroy the stronghold of poverty in his mind, he was to speak three scriptures out loud four hours a day until they dropped down into his heart and became reality. This would set him free from the stronghold of poverty holding back his God-given prosperity. Here are the three prosperity scriptures the Lord instructed him to speak out loud:
"The young lions do lack, and suffer hunger: but they that seek the Lord shall not want any good thing" (Psalm 34:10).
"For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich" (2 Corinthians 8:9).
"But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus" (Philippians 4:19).
Am I saying you must spend four hours a day speaking out loud these promises to destroy any poverty stronghold you might have? No. How much time you spend a day declaring these prosperity promises is up to you. But I will say this, the more time you spend doing it, the quicker the results.
I suggest starting out with fifteen minutes a day and increase it to one half hour or more. Gary said that within three weeks he noticed a difference in his life and eventually he was free from the poverty stronghold that held him captive. He got a revelation that God was his source and not his job, the government or anything else.
And by the way, this three scripture formula will work for any area of your life: healing, confidence, deliverance from some sinful bondage, weight-loss or whatever. Just find three scriptures that relate to your problem and away you go.
