When you don't know who you are or what you have, you can be easily manipulated and deceived.
As a Christian, you must know that you have been saved, you must know you have been healed, and you must know that you have been given a rich supply.
It's a good feeling to have extra money at the end of the month, but sadly, most Christians have extra month at the end of the money. Poverty is not a sin, but it is a curse and a problem that many live with. A Change Is Needed
One thing I have discovered over the years is that when a person is in financial trouble, the answer is not more money. If a person lives with the poverty mentality, money will only be a temporary solution to a long-term need. We must understand this.
If we keep doing what we've always done, then we will continue to have what we've always had. And nothing is going to change until something changes.
Jesus said in Mark 9:23, "If you can believe, all things are possible to him who believes." It is possible to break free of the poverty mindset and walk in the prosperity that God has planned for His people. God's plan for you is health, wisdom and prosperity, with absence of sickness or lack.
But how can we change our thinking? How can we break years of wrong thoughts and actions?
Actually, the answer to that is quite simple. Jesus said in John 8:31-32 that if we continue in His Word daily, then we will understand the truth and it "will make [us] free."
Prosperity is freedom; poverty is bondage, and the choice is ours. Jesus said that our words would be the determining factor in whether we are justified or condemned.
Also, we are told in Proverbs 18:21 that life and death are in the power of the tongue. What we say is extremely important. It will determine whether we live in prosperity or whether we live in poverty.
How do we know what to say?
We look to God's Word and say what He says! Copyright © Larry Ollison Ministries
