From Worry to Wealth!
The blessing of the LORD makes a person rich, and he adds no sorrow with it. -Proverbs 10:22
I must confess that I have been poor and I have been rich and I choose rich every single time! I woke up this morning and I felt a strong anointing for finances on my hands. I opened up my linked in and I had a job opportunity. It was a sign from the Lord to release this blog today! Worry was one of my biggest struggles. As a church planter, I am not exactly rolling in cash. But I haven’t been poor desolate. I have never had to beg for bread. God has always provided. I want to share with you some steps that you can take to go from worry to wealth. I believe you are about to come into a season of wealth. Everything you are about to receive is by the grace of God. Are you ready to receive? Open your spirit up wide and welcome the Holy Spirit to lead you into all truth.
A few years ago I had barely any food in my pantry. We were in between churches and I had no job. Yet I had so much to be thankful for. My stomach was in knots. Then I turned on TBN and a prophetess said just thank God for what you have and for who He is. I began to praise God that I had a roof over my head. I praised Him that I had a family and a vehicle. My heart began to change. I cried for the first time in years. I developed the attitude of gratitude.Within a few hours someone dropped off a Walmart gift card with a few hundred dollars on it. I was so humbled. I had not even asked God for it. I was more concerned with my heart because I know that was what God was trying to change. Gratitude is the first step toward wealth. Pride comes before the fall. You must be grateful for what you have.
Psalm 23:1 says the Lord is my shepherd. I shall not want. That was my problem. I wanted stuff. I began to seek God first and then the stuff came. Become grateful and the blessings of God will flow out of that place of brokenness. He will release something beautiful in the midst of your battle.
My family has always been generous. We have given everything we have to the ministry. We have tithed and gave additional offerings. Yet we continued to struggle. I asked the Lord what was up. Through the wise words of a pastor the Lord showed me it wasn’t about a percentage. It was about giving to Him what is His off the very top. We didn’t give after our bills. Give God your first fruits not what is left over. God doesn’t want your leftovers. The bible talked about a widow with 2 pennies and gave all she had. Jesus saw that she gave and He said that she had given the most out of all who gave. It was about her holy dependence on the Lord. She may had not had much but she gave it all. God isn’t trying to get something from you. He is trying to get something to you.
The spirit of poverty is broken with a $100 dollar seed. Many eat their seed. If you have $100 dollars don’t spend it. Sow it. We did this and within a few weeks we had seen over $1,000 come in supernaturally. We did this all last year and every month supernaturally we received an extra $1,000. It wasn’t magic. It was seed time harvest. If you don’t understand seed time and harvest ask the Lord for a revelation. He is your Source. Give Him all you have and He will cause you to prosper. You have to name your seed to and plant it. Then water it with the Word of God. Speak scriptures over your seed. Once you let go what is in your hand, God lets go of what is in His hand.
It’s why you should partner with ministries like Spirit Fuel with your offerings. There is a prophetic flow that can invade your life and that prophetic anointing coupled with your obedience will usher you right into your purpose.
I have always been a giver but I was not good at receiving. I was prideful. Then a Baptist pastor sat me down in his office and gave me a check for $300 dollars and I slid it back to him and told him I was OK. He said I was being prideful and he told me a story about how he had lost everything in a fire and the church helped him with everything he had. This experience rid him of pride. I reached for the check and put it in my pocket. Lesson learned. If you can’t receive from others, then you have pride. God isn’t looking for givers. He is looking for receivers.

Wealth is about accumulation. Are you asking for miracle or do you desire to truly accumulate wealth? Accumulating means saving. Being a poor steward will keep you broke. Stop spending and start saving. This is a cycle tied to sowing and reaping too. The more generous you are with your giving, the more finances will flow through you. This isn’t about you. It is about building God’s Kingdom through the local church. If you don’t feel comfortable giving at your church, then you are probably at the wrong church. I personally believe that giving your tithe should be done to the ministries that minister to you the most. I am careful where I sow. I sow where the anointing is present. I sow where the glory is moving. I look at how many people are being saved. I look for miracles and I look for a vision that clearly communicated. Is the leader on fire for the vision?
That’s how it works in the Kingdom. If there are people in your church who are hurting, then help them. What you sow right now you will reap later. When you do a favor for someone you can reap favor later. When it comes to helping with money don’t lend it, but give it away. If not it strains the relationship.
I feel a such a strong anointing for prosperity. I believe in this atmosphere we have created, we must declare his prophetic promises. You are the head and not the tail. You are above and not beneath. No weapon formed against you shall prosper. You will lack no good thing in Jesus name!
There is power in a prophetic declaration. It accelerates things in the spirit. No more delays in Jesus name! You have to open your mouth and say it out loud. Don’t just whisper it. Don’t be ashamed about who is around you. If you are ashamed of declaring God’s promises over you, then will you be able to handle when He blesses you? Declare His promises until you see the manifestation of them! Open your mouth and declare with me:
I prophesy favor over myself in the form of new jobs, promotions, raises, checks in the mail, inheritances, business opportunities, contracts, deposits, finding monies, donations, free furniture, free clothes, free houses, free cars, free tools to advance the Kingdom in Jesus mighty name! The wealth of the wicked is stored up for me! I break the spirit of poverty off now and I command the blessing to come upon me now. I will prosper in Jesus name!
