How to live in divine abundance – Part 2
Yesterday I started enumerating some of the steps to living a life of abundance. Today, I will bring it to a conclusion. I want to warn you that these steps are not to be made into a formula but made a way of life. It is not a get rich quick scheme. It is the path designed for a lifestyle of abundance. True abundance starts from within.
Believing and saying
Mark 11:23 – For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.
Each step in abundance requires faith. We sow our seed by faith and we reap our harvest by faith. Faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God (Romans 10:17). Faith has to be in two places, in your heart and in your mouth. Believing in your heart and saying with your mouth produces the operation of faith. If you put the word of God in your eyes, put it in your ears, and let it get down into your heart in abundance, it will come out of your mouth as faith-filled words and it will change your life and circumstances. What stands between you and walking in the dream God has for you, is knowing what is in the word and doing it. Happy shall you be when you do these things. It is not what you know that sets you free; it is what you do with what you know that guarantees freedom.
When you continually meditate in God’s word, the word of God will gather momentum in your heart and your faith will become turgid and stand upright. Then the word within you will reset your vocabulary and you begin to speak like God speaks. Your word will carry power for performance. Friend, our words rule us. Start to build the word investment in your heart until it overflows. It is not enough to know the word, you need to know and have it resident inside you in abundance then it will overtake your tongue and produce heavenly utterance that will result in your abundance.
Friend, when God wanted to create heaven and earth He spoke them into existence. Whenever God wants do anything, be it calling a person into ministry, healing the sick or turning people’s captivity, He always speaks the word to create the circumstance or change He wants. Your mouth and heart must be saying the same thing. They cannot be in disagreement, they must always agree. Before I call anything forth , I first find out what God’s word says about the issue, I settle it in my heart and take God’s word as the final authority for me I then meditate on that word until I am of full of conviction based on that word and then I begin to say and call forth my abundance. After I sow my seed I call forth my harvest based on God’s word. I don’t stop calling until I experience the full manifestation of the abundance promised me in God’s word.
To recap, to walk in abundance you must practice the following:
Walking in truth
Sowing and reaping
Believing and saying
As you make these steps, you will encounter all-round abundance and live above limits.
Joshua 1:8, 2 Corinthians 4:13, Romans 10:8, Matthew 12:37
