There is always something you have which can be used to guarantee your supply of wealth.
Now a way to identify such is by the prompting of the Holy Spirit, praying (especially praying in tongues) can also enhance your being able to identify such thing of value.
Look well today and respond to the prompting of the Spirit of God. Know that your money or resources don’t enrich God, what you have serves an avenue to lunch you into higher levels.
If you look at the story of the widow of Zarephath in 1 kings 17, you might ask, why didn’t God send Elijah to that widow when she had more to give, why wait till it was only but a little left in her possession.
It is clear that judging spiritual issues by sight will only limit you, looking through the Spirit in faith propels you into doing what is required to place the seal upon your guaranteed supply of wealth.
Be wise today!
You may desire a big miracle, maybe in your finances, business or even in your career, let me share this tip with you – I’ve discovered that there are some kind of giving that provokes the Quick Response Squad of heaven to come to your aid. Take a look at the story of the woman of zarephath, she had just a little for her house but all the same she gave it up and that’s a manifestation of faith and she was free from the effect of drought.
Now look further, God told Elijah that He had commanded a widow in Zarephath to sustain him (1 kings 17:9).
Have you ever wondered, since God could provide for Elijah through ravens(1 kings 17:4), why didn’t He also keep the brook from drying! Now see, I believe God gave the widow of Zarephath the opportunity to also benefit from a divine supply, her seed came in contact with the Anointing upon the life of Elijah and it was fertilized and by that, what was not even sufficient for her household, was multiplied by a supernatural supply despite the famine.
Don’t be moved by you feelings or by sight, let the Spirit of God move you in faith to respond adequately and accurately to the opportunities you’ve been given to write your wealth story.
John 12:24(AMP) says ” I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains [just one grain; it never becomes more but lives] by itself alone. But if it dies, it produces many others and yields a rich harvest”.
The prophet Elijah asked the widow of zarephath for bread (1 Kings 17:11 – And as she was going to fetch it , he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand, but in actual sense, she didn’t have enough to satisfy her home, let alone an extra mouth (1 Kings 17:12 – And she said, As the Lord thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.).
But Elijah still requested that the woman took him as priority over herself and household (1 Kings 17:13 – And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son. )
Therefore a word came from the Lord through the prophet, that she will have plenty all through the drought (1 Kings 17:14 – For thus saith the Lord God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the Lord sendeth rain upon the earth.)
This was one of the big miracles of the old testament, and you can learn from it.
Elijah moved as instructed by God (who made consistent provision for him all through the famine), to the widow of Zarephath who had been instructed by God to feed Elijah.
Now all she had was little but all the same she gave up her comfort to minister to the need of Elijah and at that, since she responded by believing the word of God from Elijah and obeying, the word spoken was established and fulfilled.
Some times, you might have to give up what you have to receive a great deal!
Wow! This lady found a little resource she had that was able to bring her wealth.
2 Kings 4:2 (AMP) – Elisha said to her, What shall I do for you? Tell me, what have you [of sale value] in the house? She said, Your handmaid has nothing in the house except a jar of oil.
Look around well and you’ll discover you too have something of value that will aid your profitability. For you a Christian, the anointing upon your life makes the wilderness a fruitful field. That’s to say by the anointing, you have the divine ability to flourish in whatever you do.
Take out time today to search out that thing of value you have and don’t be scared nor discouraged with how little it might look. Once you’ve discovered what you have that will bring profitability, let the show begin and see how you’ll prosper with it.
Mediocrity or failure is never an option for you!
A quite insignificant way to increase in what you have is to effectively manage the seemingly little put in your care, take note that manage here doesn’t mean to hold on to what you have without giving.
Now see from scriptures Luke 16:10 He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much.
This is to say that the way you handle resources now is a reflection of how you would later on when you have a lot more at your disposal. Don’t be like they that say when I have more, I will handle better. No! The true test of your effectiveness at managing the resources you haven’t seen yet is in the way you handle that which you have within your reach now.
There was a period I was preparing for my exams and I muttered some words in prayer asking the Holy Spirit to be my coach all through the exam period, funny, I had hardly finished than He answered me and said “read for an average of so..so.. hours daily this period”. It’s funny how one will just feel that the Holy Spirit will do everything for one.
Amongst many things, He is there to guide and direct you in what YOU SHOULD do.
“Trust God from the bottom of your heart; don’t try to figure out everything on your own. Listen for God’s voice in everything you do, everywhere you go; He’s the one who will keep you on track”. Proverbs 3:5-6 (MSG)
The Holy Spirit in you can aid your effectiveness at knowing and planning for the unseen, as any man who listens to and is led by the Spirit of God cannot be stranded or caught unawares.
Plan today, consult the Spirit of God in you and adequately project the direction of your organization!
There is a quote that says “he who fails to plan, has planned to fail” – this means a conscious refusal to prepare by planning equals an acceptance of failure because things might hit you unawares which you never prepared for.
Planning is an important tool in life, and also in your business. One day the Holy Spirit ministered this to me with respect to having an organization- “structure around your growth” meaning as you keep growing and expanding, structure to fit your new level of growth.
Sit today and plan that growth you’ve long desired for your business. Stop sitting idle and wishing for growth.
Plan for your growth today!
Have you gotten to a stage where you no longer have a clue on what next to do in your business, you don’t even know what to do to give you an edge in business! Let me prescribe a helpful solution.
Your spirit knows all things, it knows what next you should do, this means in the real sense, you’re never short of knowledge on what to do, because in you is an unending well of ideas.
The bible says 1 Corinthians 14:2 For he that speaketh in an unknown tongue speaketh not unto men, but unto God: for no man understandeth him ; howbeit in the spirit he speaketh mysteries.
To figure out what to do, spend time praying in tongues, I see praying in tongues as a way to decode things into clearity for any individual.
Make it a habit to pray in tongues and I assure you that, the ideas on what to do will keep coming, in it you will receive direction from God on what should be done.
This is your edge!
I read the story of a very successful business man that never had any loss in business. He was asked how he ran his business without any loss, he replied saying I move by the leading of the Spirit, I don’t do anything without his leading, I ask Him before I make any decision.
Making the Holy Spirit your very partner in business makes for a good competitive advantage. You see God knows all things, He knows the best way you can succeed and He is always ready to help you through. You just have to consult Him and take His counsel. I assure you that His counsel is always the best irrespective of how awkward it might look to people.
Proverbs 3:5 “Trust in the Lord with all thine heart; and lean not unto thine own understanding”.
The Bible talks about how powerful the tongue is, it speaks on what it’s capable of doing. See what it says in James 3:3-5 (MSG) “A bit in the mouth of a horse controls the whole horse. A small rudder on a huge ship in the hands of a skilled captain sets a course in the face of the strongest winds. A word out of your mouth may seem of no account, but it can accomplish nearly anything—or destroy it!”
The same way, you can use your tongue to navigate the course of your life, business, ministry, marriage and everything that you want to. Your words are very powerful and what you say, gradually manifests. I therefore put it to you, today start speaking to your business, it will hear you. Say what you desire to see not otherwise and work at it. Let your words correlate with what you desire then do same. Don’t say something and do another. Speak right and work right.
