Gary was a Christian who had learned in church that while it was good to worship and serve God, having an abundance of """"things"""" was not. The """"prosperity message"""" was frowned upon. However, he eventually discovered that financial prosperity was the Christian's inheritance according to God's Word, and we are blessed to be a blessing.
""""Beloved, above all, I wish for thee to prosper and be in good health, even as thy soul prospereth"""" (3 John 2).
So Gary began to put all of the prosperity truths he had learned into action, but instead of getting out of debt and living an abundant life, he continued to struggle financially and remained in debt. Fortunately, the Lord revealed the problem to him one day. All of his previous teaching on how it was wrong to seek prosperity had become a poverty stronghold in his mind, keeping him from his God-ordained wealthy position. The Lord showed him how to destroy that stronghold using God's mighty and powerful weapon, the Word of God.
""""Isn't my word as strong as fire? ""And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces,"" says the Lord."" Jeremiah 23:29.
The Lord's instructions were straightforward. To break the stronghold of poverty in his mind, he was to read three scriptures aloud four hours a day until they became reality in his heart. This would free him from the shackles of poverty that had been holding back his God-given prosperity. Here are the three prosperity scriptures that the Lord told him to say aloud:
""""The young lions lack and hunger; but those who seek the Lord shall not want anything good."" (Psalm 34:10). """"For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, he became poor for your sakes, that ye might be rich through his poverty"""" (2 Corinthians 8:9). """"But my God, who is rich in glory, shall supply all your needs through Christ Jesus"" (Philippians 4:19).
Is it true that you must spend four hours a day speaking these promises aloud in order to destroy any poverty stronghold you may have? No. It is entirely up to you how much time you spend each day proclaiming these prosperity promises. But I will say this: the more time you put into it, the faster the results will be.
I recommend starting with fifteen minutes per day and gradually increasing to a half hour or more. Gary stated that he noticed a difference in his life within three weeks and that he eventually broke free from the poverty stronghold that had held him captive. He had a revelation that God, not his job, the government, or anything else, was his source.
By the way, this three-scripture formula will work for any area of your life: healing, confidence, deliverance from some sinful bondage, weight loss, or anything else. Simply find three scriptures that address your issue and you're good to go.
Once you realize you can break free from a poverty mental stronghold, it's time to learn God's economic system, which is the key to financial independence where the cost of an item isn't an issue because you're loaded. Click on """"Blessed to Be a Blessing"""" to the right.
