A few days ago I was sitting with my church family and the topic of money came up.
I was sitting with them and we were bringing up the promises of God on our lives - to prosper in EVERY good thing! Then Apostle Roy began quoting scripture.
"And they rose early in the morning, and went forth into the wilderness of Tekoa: and as they went forth, Jehoshaphat stood and said, Hear me, O Judah, and ye inhabitants of Jerusalem; Believe in the LORD your God, so shall ye be established; believe his prophets, so shall ye prosper." - 2 Chronicles 20:20.
Another brother quoted, "Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." - Luke 6:38.
And another brother quoted, "Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously. Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver. And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work." - 2 Corinthians 9:6-8.
This all got me to thinking, which I do often. I began to think to myself, “Wow, we sure do know a lot of scriptures! We even have some of them memorized! But, WHEN, Lord, WHEN will it manifest in OUR lives?”
What the Spirit of the Lord said to me next would astound me at how practical and common-sense oriented my Father truly is! He told me, “Michael, my beloved son, I have given them to you. Simply recognize them and receive them.”
Instantly, I knew what He meant.
You see, God gives us CHANNELS that He uses to pipe the blessings to us. For many of us, one of the main channels He uses is our regular full time job. It’s not God’s ONLY way, but having the channels in your life sure does help!
But I began to get really excited as the Lord began to remind me of just SOME of the channels He’s given me that He will use to pipe me my blessings:
My preaching and teaching
My Legal Shield
BUT … ! WAIT A MINUTE!
You MUST put these assets (Property owned by a person or company, regarded as having value and available to meet debts, commitments, or legacies) in gear.
In other words, you must … wait a minute. No other words. That’s it. If you can’t understand “put your assets in gear” then I’m sorry.
Oh, and one of the best things about my channels - they’re all about helping people. It doesn’t get better than that.
And there you have it. My word from God - “Michael, my beloved son, put the assets I gave you into gear … and receive!”
Thank you Father.
