The subject of financial blessings is one subject that every Christian will want to hear about, since everyone desires to be rich in earthly possession. But how can we really come out of financial strains, debts and other related challenges? Is it possible to be debt free and live in abundance?
The amazing thing in the bible is the promises of overflow, God promises not only enough but more than enough. The specification is more than you can handle. It leaves us with one question, why then have we not been able to enjoy this kind of blessing in our lives? Could it be that we are not following the instructions of the lord to the book? Consider these promises
Deuteronomy 28:1-3 And it shall come to pass, if you shall hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD your God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command you this day, that the LORD your God will set you on high above all nations of the earth: And all these blessings shall come on you, and overtake you, if you shall hearken unto the voice of the LORD your God. Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the field.
Moses instructed the children of Israel that if they will be careful to obey the voice of the Lord in full or completely, all these blessings will come to them and overtake them. The blessing here covers both the city and the land? Think about this, how often have we considered ourselves blessed just because we are blessed in the city or in the land. There are people who are so blessed in one of these places, but the blessing of God covers both the land and the city, not only to satisfaction but to overflow “more than enough”.
As we look deeper in to this subject, your eyes will be opened to see the full perimeter of God’s blessings. When you are blessed by the lord even the fertility of your soil will be affected, when others are crying of drought you will be harvesting much, when others are complaining of a global economic crisis you will still be having more than enough. This is the kind of blessing that the bible is talking about.
When the Lord began to open my eyes to this revelation, I was so eager to know how I can inherit these blessings, but then I was astonished at the principles the bible is offering. And the truth is that many of us do not fulfill these principles that are why we are not blessed as the bible says.
I want you to know that you can be blessed as the bible says if only you follow the instructions of the lord. All these instructions are in the word of God, and all you need to do is find it and obey it.
The big word is “giving” the only way to receive through the whole bible is by giving. You may ask of me how can I give and yet I do not even have enough myself? Everyone has something to give, before he is completely out, and the decision is yours “will you sow the seed or eat the seed” if you eat the seed you kill your chances of ever getting a harvest, but if you sow though it may be painful, you are expectant of a harvest. Giving is the only way to come out of financial strains, if you want your life to change then you must stop complaining about what you do not have and start thinking about how you can use what you have to get what you do not have. The keys are in your hands. What you have will call out for what you do not have.
There are three principles through the word of God which if we fulfill we will be able to walk in plenty both in the land and in the city these are; tithe, offerings and seed. Let us look at them one at a time.
