I want to challenge the thinking of someone today, who is just sick and tired of being broke. In fact, you are so fed up, you do not want to hear from another preacher begging you for another penny or asking you to sow some love seed, first fruit seed, last fruit or whatever seed.
You are tired of your children asking for what you do not have; tired of not having gas to go from point A to point B; tired of not having enough food. In fact I hear someone saying, “It would not be as bad if I didn't have a family to take care of”.
Well my friend, today I want to provide you with the key out of your perplexing financial situation. Guess what? It does not require you giving to any religious institution.
The key to financial recovery is to give your way out of your current lacking position. Scripture says the following, “He that scatters (he that gives) will increase but he that do not give or holds on to more than he needs is guaranteed poverty.” Scripture goes on to say, “The liberal soul shall be made fat, and he that watereth shall be watered himself” (Proverbs 11:24-25).
The point I want to pound into your understanding today is simply this, stop saying you have nothing to give and stop reserving your giving only for religious institutions.
I promise you, every time you ask God for a financial release, breakthrough, miracle or whatever, the protocol to his answer will always be the above scripture, which I might add is his law. It is not by chance or accident that you have been praying for finances and all of a sudden someone in a far less position is asking you for something. It is your physical act of giving that activates the spiritual law of releasing. Does someone owe you monies and don't want to pay, then try giving. Are the courts or lending institutions holding funds for you, then begin giving if it is your desire to have those funds released.
That bum or beggar at the stop light, gas station ATM machine, is your ticket to your way out of your financial distress (simply by helping them, even though you need help yourself). The clothing and shoes that you have no more use for are all seeds to invest into someone else’s life to bring increase to you. If you refuse to activate the law of giving, then it suggests to me that you're comfortable in your broke state!
The lady at Zarephath who was sick and tired of being broke and was about to give up on life, did not realize that the small gesture of giving to Elijah the prophet (something in her possession that she thought meant nothing) would change her entire life. Her wealth, increase, abundance multiplication was wrapped up in her handful of meal and a little oil in a cruse. As small as it might be, once sown into someone else’s life, it activated the law for increase to pour into her life, (1 Kings 17:8-16).
The above scriptures provide the mystery of wealth and poverty. It clearly states if one gives he/she will increase and the liberal (free or giving) soul shall be made fat (wealthy). The scripture compounds the point by reiterating the fact that he that watereth (gives to or help others) will be watereth himself (someone must give to him).
I want to say to someone today who is sick and tired of being sick and tired, that all is not lost and there is tremendous hope. The hope is, you have something in your possession that you have been holding on to that so happens to be the root of your lack/poverty, meaning you are not releasing it. It could be money, clothing, love, unforgiveness, bottom line you must release in order to increase. I promise you, whatever you make happen for others God will make happen for you. This is a law.
Nothing is happening for you because you are not making it happen for others. Stop looking at what you do not have and begin giving what you do have, whatever that may be.
I know I am confirming some things with many of you today: to break loose of the bandages you have found yourself in, you must give your way out of your current circumstances.
