Abundance

Faith for abundance

By Pastor Andrew Bawa

"Then the people went out and plundered the tents of the Syrians. So a seah of fine flour was sold for a shekel, and two seahs of barley for a shekel, according to the word of the Lord." 1 Kings 7: 16 (NKJV)

Bible Readings: 2 Kings 7: 1-20, Matthew 13, James 1: 8, Luke 24, Psalms 107: 2, Luke 5: 18.

Faith is laying hold of unrealities of hope and bring them into the realm of reality by the word of God.

Faith is not hope. Hope is the vehicle that faith drives on. Faith is now! If it not now, it is not faith. We do not receive by hoping but by faith. If it doesn’t work, it is not God’s fault but your fault. The word can only work when you are ready for it. If your heart is not ready, nothing an happen. Sometimes the reason why you have not seen some things is because your confession and action is different. Your faith must match your action. Faith changes things, faith doesn’t change God. When God speaks, he is looking for who will agree. What kind of faith do you have?

Faith never looks back. It says now, it is mine. Be moved by what you believe not what you see or hear. Faith without work is dead. Unbelief is going against what the lord says. Satan always challenges real faith. Satan will always challenge whatever is real. Do what God says you should do not what your mind says you should do. Satan will challenge whatever is of God. Satan will test that faith. Don’t always wait for something to happen, make it happen. Enough of waiting for miracle to happen, be a miracle worker. Start acting the word!

Faith is not a promise, it is a statement of fact. Real faith says about you what the word of God says about you. Faith is a mystery that makes you a master over a situation. Faith puts you in command and makes you a commander. Faith is speaking the word of God over every area of your life.

Life of abundance

By Pastor David Chigbundu

"The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly." John 10: 10 (NKJV)

Bible Readings: John 11: 40, 2 Chronicles 20: 20-24, 1 Samuel 1: 10-19, Matthew 25: 29, Luke 1: 8, 2 Chronicles 22: 11-22, Isaiah 64: 1-4, Psalms 144: 7-8.

We are so quick to know the how and when the how is given, we back off. Abundance is having more than you need. It is made available to everyone that is ready to meet the requirements. 

5 requirements God has of us to live in abundance 

⁃ Thanksgiving: Your thanksgiving had the ability to raise things back to life. The ability to be grateful to God regardless of your circumstances. 

⁃ Tears: God responds to two types of tears; tears from a broken and contrary heart and tears about yourself but beyond yourself.

⁃ Service: What you are doing has to benefit God. What are you doing with your gift? You have to serve in the house of God. You are meant to be planted and flourish. 

⁃ Time: For God to visit you, you have to stay steadfast in him. What are you doing to your time? 

⁃ Substance: God requires your substance in order for you to reach abundance.

An hindrance to getting to that abundance is the voice of the enemy. If you listen to that voice, you will live a life of oppression. You need to silence that voice. 

Prayers.

1. Every voice of the enemy, I silence you.

2. Every Spirit of fear ministering to me, I cast you out. 

3. Lord in the name of Jesus, open the heavens and come down in my situation.

4. Let every mountain in my life, family melt down now.

5. Whatever mountain against NGWC, lord open the heavens and let them melt before you.

6. Father, let your fire go before me and let every thing burn.

7. Whatever system that is standing against me, lord shake every shakeable and let the powers that be in them fall.

8. Father let every enemy of yours who is my enemy, learn the reason for your fame.
