Many people pray and wish for financial dominion but they fail to realize that this kind of dominance is a covenant; Deuteronomy 8:18 “But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day”. Why did God give them power to get wealth? To establish the COVENANT He swore to their fathers. Covenant is a two way action; when you play your part, then you have committed God to play His part too. The covenant of prosperity is hinged on giving; tithes, offerings, sacrificial seeds, giving to the needy and poor etc. And your blessings is commensurate with your giving, V 6 “But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully”.
We must also understand that God won’t release His financial empowerment on someone He cannot trust, Luke 16:11 “If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?” God doesn’t need you and I for anything, but we need Him for everything. In that which He has given you, how faithful are you to Him? Prior to our last Paschal conference, the Holy Spirit retrained us from calling for seeds towards the program. We then looked inwards that what did we have, our “little jar of oil” was our second car which we put up for sale to fund the program, V 12 “For the administration of this service not only supplieth the want of the saints, but is abundant also by many thanksgivings unto God”.
You must have the proper mindset towards giving unto God. Many see God as money doubler and expect bigger returns when they give. While it is not bad to expect blessings back for good works, your first motive for giving should be because you love God, then that you want to be a blessing to others. When God sees your faithfulness towards giving, He will empower you financially to break the pangs of poverty in the lives of people.
Prayer point: I receive the grace to be a giver in Jesus name.
