Learning to Stay in Success!
The story of Issac sowing in famine.
Issac’s obedience to the word of the Lord caused Him to prosper. He went from failure to success, he stayed in success and then moved into greater success.
Our faith pleases God. We see that in Hebrews 11:6, "But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him."
The Lord wants to favor you for influence and success.
Faith has a role to play in your relationship with the Father. As you grow in faith you grown trust that the Lord will fulfill His promises. Faith is explained in Hebrews 11:1, "Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, [a]the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses].”
Over time you go to another level of Destiny, you will see a picture of Genesis 26. You move from success to success. Each time you move from one level of faith to another to move to the next level.
And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
All your needs include:
Believe the Lord for:
~ Physically healing, refreshing, rejuvenation, His ability to care for you, and place a hedge of protection around you.
~ Emotional stability, being strong in your soul.
~ Relationally with the Lord, and with your family.
~ Spiritually that we want to grow as mature sons and daughter in the Lord. We want to grow and not stop at a plateau in our Christian walk.
~ Financially the Lord wants to take lids of Limitations off you, and bring His substance of blessings.
Here is a Key!
Trust that God tells you the truth and that He loves you! When you Give to Him he gives back more. There are only so many hours you can work in the day, trust that when you place your tithes and offerings in His hands He can do for you what you can not do for yourself.
Tithing breaks off the fear of lack!
The Lord wants to bless you! When you partner with God you plug into His divine supply line! You are not plunging into natural supply, but into His ability to supply for you.
Believe that the Lord Wants you to be blessed.
Prophetic vision in giving is this, “I have faith that the Lord will multiply my seed. He will rebuke the devourer on my behalf. He will bring my harvest to me."
God is faithful and True! He loves you. Don’t grow weary when you don’t see instant payback! In due season you will reap. Continue to sow knowing that you will reap a harvest far beyond what you were able to sow.
Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”
2 Corinthians 9:6
You water its ridges abundantly, You settle its furrows; You make it soft with showers, You bless its growth. You crown the year with Your goodness, And Your paths drip with abundance.
