Within Donald Lawrence popular hit song “The Gift”, he mentions the systems of this world tries to steal your confidence to make you doubt what is heaven sent. This song lyrics reveals to me the world system is a system of unbelief in God’s anointed word that makes you doubt God’s provision for your life. Isaiah 61:1 tells us the anointing is on us to give us the ability to preach good tidings to the poor, heal the brokenhearted and set the captives free from prison. God releases this anointing through your spiritual gift and talents. John 6:28-29 tells us if we want to see the works of God believe in the one He sent. God sent His Son to release the anointed gift of God’s grace to all who believe. I encourage you to believe in the gift of God’s grace He gave to you. A gift can not be earned; only accepted, appreciated and treasured.
Your provision is in the gift of God’s grace and talents God gave to you. The gift of God’s grace will tell you how to maximize your talent for the kingdom of God. Your financial freedom and abundant life of prosperity is not rooted in your job, people, or things. It is rooted in your life’s purpose revealed in the gift of God’s grace to win lost souls for God’s kingdom. God gives His sons and daughters this gift of Grace to increase you in stature, wisdom and favor with God and man (Luke 2:52). He had this gift of grace when He first thought of you, before you were formed in your mother’s womb. Jesus tells us about where this gift of Grace is located in John 14:1-4. Your gift of grace is in the place Jesus went to prepare for you, your heavenly mansion. This heavenly mansion resides in God’s revelation of your life’s purpose that you were created to fulfill on earth for God’s glory. Decide today to accept, keep, grow and maintain the gift of God’s grace He gave to you. Let God bring you the increase of an abundant life on earth that He purposed for you to have before the beginning of time. The spirit of power, love and soundness in your mind, soul, spirit and body is within this gift of grace. Get in position of believing God’s gift of grace through investing your time, talent and freewill in the living and powerful word of God.
In Luke 12:32-34 Jesus tells us where your heart is there your treasure will be also! Your treasure is your freewill and your freewill is your belief. You are given the treasure of your freewill to choose life or death, blessings or curses. The Lord tells us to choose life. The treasure of your belief is always positioned in the heart whether your belief is used for satan’s purposes which are carnal minded or God’s purposes which are heavenly minded. Do not misunderstand what I am saying, although God’s purposes are heavenly minded, God still wants His will to be established on earth. Remember in the Lord’s prayer, Jesus said God’s will be done on earth as it is in heaven. If the treasure of your belief in your heart is rooted in heavenly purposes, then your thoughts, conversations as well as your actions towards God, yourself and others will be heavenly.
To be heavenly minded is to be kingdom minded. Matthew 6:33 tells us to seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added to you. Things are desires. Desire to be holy as your God is holy and let this mind be in you that is also in Christ Jesus (Philippians 2:5). Holiness is being one mind in Christ with a heart willing to believe God; demonstrated in your obedience to the Holy Spirit. This is the heart of true worship that God loves. A heart of true worship is a heart after God’s own heart. He said in Psalms 37:4 that if you pleasure yourself in Him, He will give you the desires of your heart. These desires are your promise land of financial freedom, wholesome relationships, good health and a life of wholeness. God giving you the desires of your heart is a gift from God and the way He wants to provide for His sons and daughters on earth because they favor His righteous cause (Psalms 35:27). The righteous cause of establishing His kingdom on earth as it is in heaven. God desires not only for His kingdom to live inside of people but manifest out of people through utilizing their talents. He wants us to make His kingdom on earth a lifestyle to win people to Him who do not believe in His gift of grace.
God’s provision is rooted in the supernatural so it can manifest into the physical realm through His sons and daughters. The supernatural is the realm of God revealing His thoughts and ways so we can manifest God’s thoughts and ways into the earth. This will happen when we learn to trust Him with our belief. It is wise to protect the gates to your heart where your gift of grace is rooted, nurtured, matured and protected from unbelief. The gates to your heart is your eyes, ears and tongue that effect your heart where the grace of God is rooted. It is important to protect your heart from unbelief because the Holy Spirit in you can not be rooted, nurtured , matured or protected in an environment that does not believe the way of God’s will.
Romans 10:17 states that faith comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God. The word of God tells us in Proverbs 4:23 to guard your heart with all diligence for out of it flows the issues of life. A seed fully grown matures into fruit. Your heart is the fertile ground where the seeds of life (thoughts of belief in God’s word) or death (thoughts of unbelief in God’s word) can be rooted to bear good or bad fruit. The fruit of belief in the Holy Spirit or Satan’s Spirit. Jesus told us in Matthew 7:15-20 that a good tree does not bear bad fruit and a bad tree does not bear good fruit. The fruit is our belief. I encourage you to keep your time, talent and belief in the kingdom of God so you can produce the good fruit/belief. Remember that God is Spirit and we must worship Him in Spirit and Truth (John 4:24).
