You can be poor not only in dollars, but emotionally, physically and spiritually. If you have a mindset of lack you will lean towards lack, expecting nothing better. You may feel incomplete, empty, inadequate or unloved, but the Lord is near the brokenhearted, He saves the crushed in spirit. (see Psalm 34:18) So instead, have abundance, love and life poured out on all levels of your life. The enemy came to steal, kill and destroy, but Jesus came to give us life and life more abundantly. (See John 10:10 ) That means overflowing, abundant provision, no room for poverty.
Position yourself for the supernatural to saturate every area of your life. Start with the choice to do this, take the action and step from the natural to the supernatural. Believe it is the correct way to go and your reality will be that way as you step one foot in front of the other, anticipating abundance, not lack.
You hear that soil is rich, what does that mean? It produces a wealth of productivity, favorable to an abundant supply. How can the soil of your life be rich so you will have an abundant harvest of body, soul and spirit? You need nourishment spiritually, take in what is capable to nourish your soil and make it rich, it’s called the Word of God. As crops need tended, weeded and watered, so your life needs tended also so the result will be health, wealth and a harvest of abundance.
Here’s three ways your Creator pours abundance and blessing into your life so you won’t live in poverty and lack:
Pour into the Spiritual
If you feel distant from God, how do you get spiritual wealth and presence in your life?
If you find you are complaining, bitter or not content, stop….and list 3 things that you are grateful for. This will shift your focus from griping to gratitude.
Draw near to Him, pray and spend time with God your provider. Seek Him and He will be found. Love Him and He will be bonded to you and be your power and protection.
Praise Him for He is worthy. God is full of mercy and goodness. As you praise Him an attitude of Gratitude rises up in you that is a wellspring of peace and joy and as you are poured into you will pour out to others.
Meditate on His Word, this is water to a dry thirsty soul that replenishes , revives and restores. Once saturated, you will be empowered. Research shows that this meditative mindfulness done just five to sixteen minutes a day will increase the chances of a happier life. (See Switch On Your Brain by Dr Caroline Leaf, p. 75)
Pour into the Physical
Eat right with food that is the colors of the rainbow. This will give good nutrition and antioxidants to fight disease. White sugar and white flour can create food addictions with the same effect as drugs. See your Doctor for help in this area, and don’t forget Dr. Jesus.
Exercise as you’re able. Just walking is the best treatment for depression. Change your mindset and believe you can do it. Allow time to accomplish this and don’t get discouraged if results are slow. The more you don’t move the more you won’t move. You may think nothing is happening but it is on the cellular level.
Handle stress positively or it will positively effect your health in a negative way causing inflammation and disease.
Pour into the Mind
As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. (See Proverbs 3:7a) Your thoughts can be a game changer since they control your brain and who you are. Monitor what you pour into your mind and what is poured into your children’s minds. If garbage is poured in then garbage will come out. (See Granpa Cratchet puppet shows) As God pours in blessings, favor and mercy into your emotions it will overflow and flush out the bad and negative thoughts.
It is difficult to disentangle the mind, body and spirit because they are entwined to make you one being and they effect each other. If you are exhausted physically, it will drain you emotionally and spiritually. I found this to be true when I cared for my terminally ill husband. I was depleted spirit, soul and body. God poured strength and energy into me as He sustained my whole being.
What if you can’t pay the bills, you lose your job, or you are living in lack and discouragement, despite you best attempts? Look to the Word for encouragement. “Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines…no herd in the stalls; yet I will rejoice in the Lord… The Lord is my strength.” (Habakkuk 3:17-19) No matter what happens the Lord never leaves you. He is a limitless God that will not leave you lacking any good thing. He is pouring supernatural strength, peace and life into you so you won’t be poor and living in insecurity, inferiority or inadequacy. What an awesome God who gives you abundance and restoration.
