“By His divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know Him, the One who called us to Himself by means of His marvelous glory and excellence. And because of His glory and excellence, He has given us great and precious promises. These are the promises that enable you to share His divine nature and escape the world’s corruption caused by human desires. In view of all this, make every effort to respond to God’s promises.” 2 Peter 1:3-6a
God has provided all we need for life. That’s prosperity. It ours. But do we access it? Do we pray for that which is already ours? If we don’t know how to access what’s ours, we will lack in many areas in many ways.
Possessing what belongs to us requires change. Unless we choose to progressively walk beyond our own mindsets, we remain where we’re at presently in life. Regardless of our position in society, mindsets are often the greatest key to breakthroughs. Breakthroughs are not all about overcoming spiritual opposition. If we’re not moving forward, it’s likely that we need to do a little homework.
“For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.” Proverbs 23:7a
We may discover how we’ve been thinking has been hindering our own progress. We must be progressive in our understanding. We attract what we think. We must focus from God’s perspective.
Many years ago, I had been asking the Lord some very specific questions about finances. I was wondering how to get out of the cycle I was in that kept me in debt. I had been seeking Him for months. Though I had acquired some new knowledge, I needed new understanding of how to apply it to my life effectively. Each of us has beliefs that have to be evaluated to calibrate with Heaven.
Suddenly one dark, quiet night while on the highway traveling I heard Him speak to me. He said, “Bret, you think in terms of hundreds and your bills think in terms of thousands. That is why you have not been able to get ahead in your finances. You need to at least think the same way your bills do. Meet them and then go beyond.”
I had been working towards changing the way I thought about money but had felt there was something I wasn’t seeing that would make the difference. This was a huge roadblock for me. I’m so thankful that He opened my eyes. It’s important to have the ability for an ever-increasing, ever-expanding grasp on seeing things accurately. Having a hunger for learning is so vital for being receptive to prospering in any area of life.
Prosperity, Wealth & Business
Prosperity is relevant to our thinking. We establish the flow and increase it by our beliefs and actions. We create the environment as co-creators with God. We take His promise and begin to make it the standard. We breathe it into our understanding and surroundings. Change the dominant beliefs and create the vacuum for manifestation.
Wealth is not just substance but also the ability to flow with creating substance through understanding. Wealth creation can be relative. It excels above and beyond no matter where it’s located. Make plans for growth. Don’t focus on what you don’t have or what you cannot do. Start co-creating with your Creator.
Business was one of Jesus’s most often used topics for parables. He had a business background as well as investors in his ministry. He still speaks about business and wealth today. He still gives wisdom for finances today. I see Him move in this area often.
As I’m in the midst of phasing out a church to launch a regional and online training school, it’s required me to focus on His miraculous provision for the vision and myself. Not only is He taking care of needs but also reaching over into business development and expanding the creative process.
Wealth is a matter of thinking. It’s not so much about positive thinking as it is having proper mindsets. Mindsets can be positive or negative. They can be a positive or a negative stronghold. Proper mindsets will change your thinking into being positive. He has positioned us to challenge our negative mindsets so they are converted into positive mindsets through new experiences that rewrite the old outcome.
Mindsets and focus are two things God wants to change for you and I. There’s a shifting going on where fresh revelation is disrupting old mindsets to take us beyond the obstacles and lies we’ve believed. God is obliterating the lies we believe regarding ourselves and our ability to create wealth.
Inventors & Entrepreneurs Released
This is the place that we are now. God has released an entrepreneurial anointing within the Body of Christ. This is a package encapsulating the prophetic and apostolic graces. The prophetic sees and hears what to build. The apostolic builds what is seen and heard. Those grabbing hold of this are moving beyond established limitations to tap into the increase released by the Lord. There is a grassroots movement of visionary people to establish and build business according to Heaven’s planning.
He is raising up a passionate people who are focused on living according to the kingdom of God. Those who will press into Holy Spirit for the miraculous and favor to accomplish His objective will expand and increase in wealth with His mind for its purposes.
Get ready for the flood of new inventors and business people coming forth. It will be widespread across the earth in waves. He’s providing answers, miracles, favor and very innovative inventions.
Obstacles are Opportunities
Are you one of those people? Maybe you’re wondering what’s next but have a business idea that won’t leave you. Often when the old is phasing out we begin to see the next place to go. Maybe your job has ended. But you have a dream. It’s time to recognize the change. The brook is drying up. Don’t sit where you are wondering what is happening and feel sorry for yourself. God is sending you.
Answer His sending. Pursue the things God has been speaking to you in business, finances and new plans. It’s no longer time to ponder. It’s now time to possess. Your provision is in following through in the next move. Go get it!
