I love it when God talks to me about Kingdom finances. I think He does it because He knows I will share!
Does this sound like you? Recently someone asked me how the Kingdom works. He said that he prays and tithes, yet his finances still haven’t changed. Does this sound like you? No worries! Many people need to better understand how Kingdom finances work!
Here are a few things God wants me to share with you. He wants His body to increase financially. If you do these things, you will have greater multiplication on your seed – guaranteed!
1: Here is the key: Do what God tells you to do. Even if it seems nuts, even if you are scared. Do it anyway. “Do whatever He tells you,” (John 2:5 ESV).
God gave me Blueprints and Strategies to Acquire Wealth but it didn’t automatically happen. One must FOLLOW a blueprint! Whatever God shows us we must still put it into action.
I won’t go into the entire word, but part of the strategy is to pay it forward – in essence, sow 10% of the amount that we wish to receive. It is tithing with expectation! Following this blueprint and the voice of God, I sowed EXPECTING TO RECEIVE ten times the amount of my seed.
Now, even though I’d seen His strategy work, the first time He told me to sow $1,200 into someone's ministry I got scared! It was someone I really didn't know that well, and I fought God for days. I tried to bargain with Him, hoping I could at least give it to someone that I knew!
Ultimately, I did it. I sowed into this person, because the Lord told me to. Almost immediately I got a message back that what I sowed into this ministry was direly needed. God knew! This was a confirmation for me. I knew then I had heard God. I just had to keep reminding myself that it is HIS money, after all – and not my own. That made it easier.
In the months that followed, I received a check for $10,000 and twice for $2,000. God not only made it up, he multiplied it back -- exactly like His word says. We must trust Him. Do it scared! If He will do it for me, He will do it for YOU, too!
2. ALL THE MONEY IS GOD'S, but we get to steward it. “The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, declares the LORD of hosts,” (Haggai 2:8 ESV).
I mentioned this a little while ago, and it needs to become second nature to think this way.
Look here -- if you have $2500 a month to live on and you are tithing $250 and He asks you to give $500 to someone – do it! It's ALL HIS MONEY. I think that's the part we miss. We think of it as OURS, when in fact, it's HIS. He requires the tithe and allows us to steward the other 90%; but realistically it’s all His.
It is fun when you start thinking you are spending someone else’s money! Just reach into God’s pocket anytime you want and get more! It makes it easy to give it away when it’s not yours. Think about that! Selah.
3. He ALWAYS gives us back what we sow… ALWAYS. He doesn’t want our seed! What He REALLY wants is to give us the MULTIPLICATION on that seed. "Give, and it will be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap. For with the measure you use it will be measured back to you," (Luke 6:38)
Sometimes we are so afraid to turn loose of our seed in case it doesn't grow. Here is a hard truth: it will NEVER grow in your hand. It must be in the ground to grow. That means you must open your hand to let go of the seed to sow it. You cannot hang onto it.
You will get it back, so stop worrying about it. But ONLY sow it where He tells you to - and HOW MUCH He tells you to sow. That is crucial....because He knows.
4. Don't ever NOT GIVE because you think you don't have money, or the money is earmarked for expenses. “…but she out of her poverty put in all the livelihood that she had,” (Luke 21:4).
Everybody has money somewhere…even if it’s couch change or emergency money socked away. God wouldn't ask you to give it if you didn't have it, and He will get it back to you – multiplied!
I have heard countless stories of people who have sown their rent money or their electric bill money -- and it came back to them supernaturally multiplied. It has happened to me, too! But ONLY do it if God tells you to do it.
What I have found is THE MORE YOU DON'T WANT TO GIVE, the greater the multiplication on that seed!! Guaranteed! It means the devil is fighting you so hard because he knows how much that seed is going to accomplish.
5. The more generous you are, the greater the harvest on your seed. “…Whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully,” (2 Cor. 9:6)
That just stands to reason! If you sow $10 you will receive multiplication on $10. If you sow $1,000 you will receive multiplication on $1,000…it’s simple math. No matter what, you will receive the greatest benefit when you give what God tells you to give!
Don't give solely to get - unless He tells you to do it. Even the Blueprints and Strategies word is based on a God-goal. We must have the right heart. We cannot be double-minded. If you want to give to someone, ask the Lord first. He will tell you. Follow the peace. It is CRITICAL that we ask Him - and then do as He says.
Read 2 Chronicles 31:4-10. King Hezekiah commanded the people to give, and they gave JOYOUSLY, both first fruits and tithes. God is commanding us to do the same; however, it’s because He wants to multiply what we give.
6. Lastly, EXPECT GOD TO MOVE ON YOUR BEHALF. EXPECT Him to do what He says He will do. EXPECT Him to multiply your seed. EXPECT Him to eliminate debt, reduce expenses and give you miracle money!
No matter what, God is still God! He loves us and He wants us to do well. He gave us a set of rules to adhere to, and when we do, we will receive our expected end: GOOD (see Jeremiah 29:11 KJV).
Seek God and ask Him yourself. Then do what He says.
I pray for brilliant ideas and witty inventions for you (see Proverbs 8:12). I pray for gross, shamefully, ridiculously huge multiplication on the seed that you have planted already. I decree that you are a people of substance - and that your foundation is strong and built on the Lord.
There is much more, but of this I am sure: God has given us a blueprint, called the Bible. It is up to us to follow it.
Blessings and abundance as you follow His Kingdom financial strategies!
