GOD WANTS YOU BLESSED!
I do not think that I am the only person in the world to have suffered lack. Working in the business part of the ministry I see many believers who struggle in their finances. This ignites a fire in me! Being a prophet, you can well imagine how passionate I can get when God lights a fire in me.
In the last while as I have been in prayer, I have seen a thunderstorm and pictures of heavy rain falling on God’s people. I know that the Lord is getting ready to do something amazing.
It burns in me to see you rise up and succeed, to see the shackles of lack break off you. It is time to start seeing that flood in your own life today.
Perhaps you are struggling to truly believe that God desires for you to be blessed, just as I used to struggle to believe it? Perhaps you even know in your mind that God desires to bless you, but you just cannot seem to shake the doubt or the bad thoughts that come, that sound like,
“If I suffer with the Lord and be patient in this time of lack, then I will reign with Him.”
“If I could just pray enough, then I will be blessed.”
“If I fast enough, God will move and I will finally get a breakthrough.”
Don’t Believe the Lies
You do not have to listen to these words. You do not even have to believe the doctrines of the past that lead you to accept that. Do not entertain these thoughts for another moment. These words are like strangers offering a child a piece of candy on a street corner.
It is a trap to get you to come close and take of those lies and be snatched up by the enemy and to have your faith be drowned out by doubt, fear and depression. Remember that the Word says that the blessing of the Lord makes rich and adds no sorrow.
God Longs to Bless You
God’s blessing is like a natural mother or father giving their child a gift. Those parents give that gift and they receive joy because of the smile on their child’s face when they open up that gift.
They are thrilled because the child is so happy that the child cannot stop smiling and running around the house in amazement. If a natural parent is so happy how much more do you think the Lord is happy when He sees His children smile?
He loves you far more than you can ever imagine. He has so many treasures and blessings stored up for you and every time He gives you one, He cannot wait to give you another because of the excitement that He sees on your face and in your heart.
He cannot wait to line up another blessing and send it straight to you because when you rejoice, it makes His heart glad and He begins to rejoice with you.
The love of our Father is in this famous scripture that we all know, even unbelievers know it too.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life. (NKJV)
God loved the world so much that He GAVE. True love compels one to give of oneself to another. Think about anyone that you love so much that you would die for them. Do you love anyone like that?
If so, then you are starting to get a feel for how much God loves you. Now, when you love someone so much that you would die for them, are you not also willing to pay any price to make them happy? Would you not go out of your way to give them the desires of their heart and put a smile on their face?
Of course you would and so does the Lord do the same thing with you. He loves you so much that it is like the feeling that you have when you fall in love with someone. You cannot stop thinking about them.
You are always wondering what they are doing. You want to know if they are happy and if there is anything more that you can do to make them happier.
You want to hold them close to you and you would love to give them the whole world, if only you could. You extend them great favor and many courtesies. It is like the King saying to Esther, “Whatever you want will be given to you, up to half of the kingdom.”
This is the type of favor and love that the Lord has for you. He will give you whatever you desire. He will bless you with good and perfect gifts that will make you stand out and shine brightly as the city set upon a hill that cannot be hidden.
He Wants You to Prosper
Are you still struggling to believe that God wants to bless you?
3 John 1:2 Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. (NKJV)
There is no getting around it. God wants you blessed! How else can you be the salt of the earth and a light in this world? Who is going to receive light from you when you are like that lamp hidden under a table?
You Are an Overcomer
How can you be an example to the world when you are looking pitiful and defeated? Who is going to look up to you when you appear helpless and have no hope for a good future? No one wants to be a part of a family that is lost and a bunch of losers. However, thanks be to God because that is exactly what we are NOT!
We are overcomers. We have weapons of warfare that are mighty in God and they pull down strongholds. We, believers, are like strong lions coming up against the enemy who is like a puny Chihuahua.
Psalm 91:13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra, the young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot. (NKJV)
God wants us to be lions trampling over adder. He wants us to live in a land flowing with milk and honey. He wants us to live as if we were back in the Garden of Eden where every need was supplied and where we were ruling and reigning in the earth over every creeping and crawling thing.
How to Walk in Blessing
Acts 16:25 But at midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the prisoners were listening to them.
26 Suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken; and immediately all the doors were opened and everyone’s chains were loosed. (NKJV)
Know the Truth
God desires for us to be as Paul and Silas here. They sang praises to God even through the worst of times. Why? It was because they knew that God was still in control and that they were not helpless and hopeless. They knew that God loved them and that He would watch over them.
Set Your Eyes on Christ
It is time for you to truly see that God loves you and is itching for you to be blessed. All you have to do is turn your eyes back on Him and stop believing the lies of the enemy. When you set your eyes on the Lord and you put on a garment of praise, it is like entering into a hot-air balloon.
Those hot-air balloons go up into the clouds and they make everything on land seem so small. You see things as you have never seen them before and all it takes is to be lifted up from the land a few thousand feet.
It is the same in the spirit. You do not have to have a whole deliverance session or months of fighting your own thoughts and fears. You can simply put on a garment of praise and be lifted up.
You can enter into the presence of the Lord and suddenly you will be surprised to see that your view has changed. Where you saw so much poverty and lack, you will see blessing and favor.
Where you were overtaken with fear of sickness and disease, you will see that no such thing has license to come near you when you are walking in the spirit and in God’s blessing.
Walk in the Light
You do not have to struggle to get the darkness out of your life. When you enter into a dark room in your house, do you argue with the darkness for hours and tell it to leave? No. You just turn on the light and then the darkness is gone.
It is the same in your spiritual life. If you are experiencing darkness in your finances, health, family or anything else, do not try to do all the right things and come up with all the right principles of overcoming – just get into His presence.
Let His presence give you the view that you need in order to overcome. Let the light come on and bring you hope again. Perhaps, you always thought that you would struggle in life and that you would always live the way you do now?
Now you can see that that is a lie from the enemy and you can continue to break free by simply focusing your attention on the Lord and allowing Him to change your view, until it becomes natural to think like Him.
Your life is never going to be the same. Today, the Holy Spirit is going to begin to remove every old vision and lie of the enemy and He is going to give you His sight to see the way that you were always intended to see.
