Did you ever hear a message and know that God was trying to speak to you through it? I have been reading Charles Capps booklet “God’s Creative Power For Finances” and I have been praying for a financial breakthrough. Back in 2004 I became ill and have not been able to return to work. I have not had an income since August 2004 when my disability ran out. We exhausted our savings and have been using our credit cards to supplement our income and now we have the proverbial “glass ceiling”. I was hoping to collect SSDI, however since I had my Gastric Bypass in June of this year I have not been able to take any of my medication and as far as the Government is concerned if I don’t take medication, I must not be sick. I know that God is in control and He supplies my needs according to His riches in heaven and that I must have faith in Him and His purpose. I was watching Kenneth Copeland’s message this morning and it was on faith. He was saying that we must stand in faith and say, “I don’t care what it looks like, I know God has taken care of this so I’m just going to stand in faith until it is completed!” So, I don’t care what my health appears to be like right now, I know God has healed me, and I don’t care what my finances look like or how much money is in my bank account, or what bills I owe, I know that God has already taken care of them so I’m just going to stand in faith, accept His blessing and purpose and wait. And if you don’t think that God talks to us, this was the message in my email today from Joel Osteen Ministries, so I would guess that it’s safe to say that God has heard my prayers and is trying to tell me something. Please keep me in your prayers. Take care and God bless you all, Briggie ^i^
A message from Joel Osteen
“Let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His children” (Psalm 35:27).
Today’s Word from Joel and Victoria
God desires that you be blessed and prosperous. He desires that you be so blessed that you can turn around and be a blessing everywhere you go! He wants you to have so much peace, so much joy, so much victory that when other people get around you it spills over onto them! In the book of Psalms, David said, “My cup runs over.” He was overflowing with the anointing—the tangible, effective power of God. Don’t let yourself have a barely-get-by-mentality. Jesus came so that you can live an abundant life! That means an abundance of joy, an abundance of peace, an abundance of health, an abundance of finances. You may not see it right now, and maybe you haven’t experienced it in the past, but don’t get complacent and just settle for where you are. Get a vision for your future! Get a vision for increase! Get a vision for abundance!” God delights to see you prosperous and successful. When you choose to think God’s thoughts and choose God’s way, you’ll see that increase and victory in every area of your life!
A Prayer for Today
Father in Heaven, thank you for delighting in my prosperity. Thank You for the blessings You have in store for me. Help my thoughts to be agreeable to Your will. Help me develop a vision for the abundant life You have in store so that I can be a blessing to those around me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen
