“Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers.” 3 John 1:2
Over the past year, our country and nations across the world have experienced unprecedented economic challenges. People have lost jobs, homes and investments. Jesus can relate to tough financial times.
In Matthew 17:24-27, Jesus and His disciples owed taxes and when the bill collector came to them it opened the door for a manifestation of money to meet the debt that was owed. Jesus told Peter to go “fishing for money” and Peter found money in the fish’s mouth. There was a manifestation. The money was where Jesus said it would be. It was enough not only for Peter’s taxes but for Jesus’ taxes too.
We know that we are prosperous and walking in a wealthy place, when our debts are paid and we also have enough to help others with their bills without it effecting our financial position.
As we observe the Kingdom principle of sowing and reaping and are faithful stewards to God in the giving of our tithes and offering, there will be a manifestation of wealth and prosperity in our lives: debts cancelled, checks in the mail, bonuses, increases, settlements, inheritances, sales, rebates, discounts, gifts, multiple streams of income, dividends, assets, residual income and any other financial blessing.
