♕ Today's Promise: “Enter His gates with thanksgiving and His courts with praise. Give thanks to Him, bless His name.” Psalm 100:4
Dear Brides, every time I read a chapter of Poverty Mentality I am so encouraged because even if it's not the exact situation that I am going through, He always speaks with me, preparing me for things that will come and teach me how to apply what I've learned in my life.
How amazing it is to see the Lord fighting for us, and showing up at the right moment to deliver us. These days He has been speaking to me so much about going to Him every time. It confirms in the way Michele explains in Chapter 3 "The Power to Make Wealth" that she keep asking Him what to do, and even if everybody told her the opposite she listened to the only truth that came from Him.
Sometimes we don't know what to do when crises or trials happen in our lives. I believe that the first and most important thing to do is to come before Him and ask for His help in every and each situation, even its small things that we think we can solve by ourselves!!
I had so many payments so many financial crises during this year, that I had no idea what I would do to pay it. Of course, I never paid it because He did, He came through in all the situations, He resolved everything. Every time I discovered a debt that I didn't know I had, or paperwork that needed to be done, for me was so impossible, but coming to Him and saying that I didn't have the money, means to pay, or that even I didn't know which should be paid first, I see Him pay my debts and not just that, see Him doing more than I could imagine, I never lacked anything, He always supplies for all my needs. Thank you, my Beloved Husband.
I will continue to come to Him always asking for His help, trusting Him for His provision, for His perfect will and timing. I want to continue to sow to other's lives, blessing them. I want to share this principle with many others, that they can also "conquer him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony..."
Lord, I confess that every time I face a financial crisis I panic, instead of remembering all the testimonies of your faithfulness over the trials that I faced. Forgive me for my lack of faith that you are more than able to rescue me again and again. Forgive me Lord for my unbelief, and for thinking that I need more when you are all that I need.
“For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus” (Philippians 1:6).
Psalm 127:2, that “It is vain for you to rise up early, to retire late, to eat the bread of painful labors; for He gives to His beloved even in his sleep,”
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves punishment, and the one who fears is not perfected in love” (1 John 4:18).
Beloved, what an amazing year, I want to count my blessings and every time I face a trial, instead of worrying I want to remember all that you've done! And give all the praise, and honor to you, and I want to trust you during my current trials, knowing that everything you do is for my own good, for the increase of my faith in you and for a more intimate relationship with you. The love of my soul. The reason that I breathe and live for.
Dear Brides, let Him speak with you, surrender to Him, listen and meditate on what you've read, and allow Him to conduct you into the abundant life He has for you.
Poverty Mentality is helping me grow more spiritually, helping to increase my faith in Him during the trials of this life.
