I've been talking a lot about a renewed mind lately because that needs to be a key focus in this season. We must learn to think like the Godhead or we will fall into deception, lack, fear and more.
As the economy begins to shake - and it is and will shake - you won't miss a beat if your mind is renewed. For example, gas and food prices are on the rise again. This shouldn't surprise anyone. It was an anomaly that gas prices dipped so much in the first place. When they did, though, U.S. car buying skyrocketed for a season. That was an intentional occurrence because most American's don't think past right now which explains the debt of and in this nation. The powers that be knew that Americans would go on car shopping sprees when gas prices were low and now the oil companies, banks, car dealerships, car washes, manufacturers, insurance companies and a whole host of other businesses are back in the black. And know that being in the black for big business means you're making millions of dollars above what you need to be debt-free.
If you're interested in creating and gaining wealth you need to learn how the marketplace operates. Wealth is greater than just more money than anyone in your family ever made. Wealth prepares for future generations. Wealth increases over the years. Wealth isn't for small-minded people and it's not for hustlers. Wealth is for people with vision and purpose and vision and purpose are the reasons the wealth of the wicked is being stored up for transfer to the godly in this season.
If your life, mind and family aren't wealth minded, you'll never have wealth. God knows from experience that without mind renewal all the wealth in the world is of no use to you. He puts gifts in us that the majority don't even know we have and therefore don't develop. He won't give us wealth when we can't even steward the basics of our authentic selves and utilize everything He's placed in us.
If you're interested in wealth at all you have to have noticed by now that people who attain are doing something extraordinary with their skillsets. You may say some people get wealthy being stupid (I'm thinking of some YouTube personalities). Well, that's the skillset they're using to get rich, not wealth. Remember wealth is generational. If you're not leaving or receiving a significant inheritance it's not wealth.
Renew your mind to what God says is possible (there's a chapter on this in Revelation is for Elevation). He said the wealth of the wicked gets stored up for the righteous. Is that you? Are you righteous? Is God's way of doing and being right your heart's desire? If it is, wealth is an option for you. BUT that's just a promise to whosoever will. In order to be eligible you have to covenant with Him to receive wealth. How do you do that? Well, everyone's process is different, but you must say, "Ok, Lord, I want that. What do I need to do?" Then as Job 22:28 tells you light will shine on your ways because you've made a declaration. Commit to the process Holy Spirit lays out for you, and then you're positioned for wealth transfer. As is anything with deliverance, this is simple ... but not easy.
Deliverance comes into play because it takes proper character to sustain wealth, and until your soul is matured your character can't handle it. Back to a renewed mind. Renewed minds and matured souls go hand in hand. Again, if you can't believe that wealth is a possibility for you you'll never receive it from God. You can make any argument you want about the wicked being wealthy, but their minds were renewed enough to believe it was possible and they rearranged their lives to pursue it. We don't have to chase after wealth; we have to chase after God and receive His power to get it.
I have greater coming to me and I'm excited about it. I can see it in the spiritual realm. And what's even betterer (one of my favorites from 1st grade) is that God does exceeding abundantly above what I can imagine. I did what I had to do and still am to be positioned to receive. Back in 2001 and 2008 when the economy hit bumps I wasn't ready, but many others were, and they bought businesses, properties, etc. for pennies on the dollar. Get ready. You don't have to experience loss just because others do. Get into alignment with God and the right people and prosper.
