LET US GO TO THE LORD IN PRAYER

Father, I come before you in the name of your son, Jesus Christ. Lord, you know all things. They are all before you like an open book. Who can hide their heart from your presence and your eye? The deeds of the most clever men are exposed before you. Your omniscience knows know bounds - and if it were not for grace, I would be of all men most terrified. But there is grace, abounding and glorious, poured out upon the weakest of men, and abounding to your glory.
Father, I praise you and I worship you; I thank you for all that you are and all that have done. There is no one like you in Heavens and on the Earth or under the earth. You are the King and there is no other. You are Savior and you share your glory with no one. Father, this day you know me and my great need of grace. Why am I here except that you called the weakest among men, the most ignoble among brothers, and that by your grace, often times, the lesser teaches the greater? That is always my case and I praise you. I worship you. Father, help us today, to the wind with eloquence, to hell with brilliant intellect, Father. Let the truth go forward. Let me be changed that the state of your church be more glorious. I pray for grace upon grace and mercy upon mercy for myself and for those who read my blog. Help us, Oh God, and we will be helped; and we will boast in that help in Jesus' Name. AMEN!!!

Kingdom Principle

         The same way you exercise your muscles if you want to stay fit and and toned is the same way you exercise your pockets or wallets and your faith and believe in God concerning your finances.

          If you do what the Word says, the principles, etc you would never have to pray for such things. You just receive because you have done your part by Obeying. Below are a few things to consider and exercise during this journey.

1. Do not eat the seed you are supposed to plant: Your seed is your tithe. Consider this: it is the same way a farmer eats what he would, invests or sells what he would, and then puts away his seed for the next planting season. A farmer harvests crops for the family/to eat (1), then he has what he sells or invests (2), and then he keeps seed for the next planting season

 1.The same applies to you, you eat some of your income, invest, save, or give (another way of investing investing); and then you plant the seed aside (tithe).

2.If the farmer eats his seed, he would have nothing to plant, and in turn, have no harvest. Eventually, he would go hungry, broke, poor and nothing to look forward to, in fact, he would have to beg.

3.Sadly many people are constantly eating their seed, and then having to beg by borrowing from someone or using credit cards to pay for something, an offering, etc;...before long, things would only get worse. Why?Well, if a farmer begs for seed to plant, how would he pay back the seed he borrowed? Either he hands over all of the harvest or makes a deal with the lender to share the harvest. He would never be able to repay the same exact seed he collected from the lender and there is no guarantee he can pay back unless there is a harvest.

4.Simply put, if you eat your seed, you are on your way to borrowing, lack and want; and if you do not plant a seed, you are not entitled  to a harvest. For this same reason many are not getting any harvest.
5. In addition, God rebukes the devourer for your sake when you do this. Forget about what people are saying about tithing or no tithing, you are running this race on your own and nobody will eat for you. Search for the truth yourself, just do your part, focusing on God and see him manifest Himself. Read Malachi 3:10.

2. Be a giver: give freely, help others, sow into the life of others and do it knowing that you are lending to God and the Lord will pay me back. As you have been given, so also give. READ Proverbs 19:17, Luke 6:38. Every giver is empowered to give. If you struggle with giving, then you need to ask God to empower you and be willing to release that which you have when God asks you to.

3. When you give, give with love otherwise it profits nothing. Basically you can give all you want, if there is no love in it, you will not receive anything. 1 Corinthians 13 says whatever we do, we should do in love. Don't just give for selfish reasons or for increase but give in love. Many people say the Bible says "give and it shall be given unto you" but remember that the same measure you give will be given unto you. Basically if you give grudgingly, you will receive grudgingly. If you give sparingly, you will receive sparingly.
4. Give with wisdom: There is wisdom in love. As you are giving, remember it is not everything you give towards. For example, if you got moved by your love for a fundraiser and gave towards it and and later found out that the money raised was used to buy guns to kill people, then you just contributed towards that, even though it may not have been your intent. So you need to learn to ask God, speak with Him and get the go ahead to give towards anything.

5. Give towards the work of God: The advancement of the kingdom is one of the reason why God blesses us with wealth. The more you give and take care of His businesses, the more He will take care of your needs. Remember to give because you love  God and are eager to do His will, not because someone tells you to. READ Matthew 6:33

6. Speak and Confess It: When and if you believe something, you will speak it. in the same vain, you will speak forth what you want concerning your finances and the more you do it, the more you will see what you say. Confess what you want concerning your finances and exercise patience to see it come to pass. Be empowered with the spirit of faith to say the things that you believe!

7. Money is a spirit, do not pursue it, command it: do not pursue money by putting so much effort into getting it but instead do the bit you can focus on God for a runaround. Command money to serve you instead you running after and serving money. When you do this, the money that is supposed to serve you cannot serve you anymore. This is a spiritual law. But as you speak it, it builds in the spirit and eventually manifests in the physical. READ Hebrew 1:14

8. Do not out of necessity or because you want to impress people but from what you have purposed in your heart. READ 2 Corinthians 9:7

9. Quit borrowing and use money within your means. Don't be covetous by buying what you cannot afford. If you truly believe God, you will believe Him for provision. (see: "Implications of borrowing".) Using credit cards and loans is not good as this is not your money. When you become a slave to the lender and this is not God's choice for you. of course you cannot serve two masters at a time, so in this case, you are either serving God or serving the lender.

     "All things are possible with God" Matthew 19:26

YOU MUST REMEMBER, HOWEVER

The riches that God blesses you with is to humble you and make you see that God is your source, your provider, your helper and that you have not done it by your hand, but when you begin to think you can do it without God, you have gone astray from what He intended for you.
