Did you know that there are no secret formulas and no secret keys to wealth and success? Jesus says in St. John 10:10”…I am come that you may have life and that more abundantly. (Read my blog on YOUR DOMINION & HEIRSHIP – Part 2, to learn what this abundant life is.) In Matthew 16:19. Jesus talks about keys to the Kingdom. These same keys are for us today, the children God & the people of God, of the Kingdom. Keys represent authority to open and close, to loose (release, untie, unbind) and to bind (restrict, handcuff, lockdown, render powerless) And as Kingdom people, there are Kingdom principles that we must practice and follow, if we are to obtain everything that is rightfully and inheritantly our, from God through Christ Jesus.
KEYS & PRINCIPLES that are essential for us to acquire our earthly and spiritual wealth and inheritance:
Love is a principal thing and must be paramount in our lives if we are going to be recipients of God’s bounty and abundance. We must first love the Lord with all that we are and with all that we have. – Deuteronomy 6:5 “You shall love the Lord your God will all your heart, with all your soul and with all your strength.” Jesus reiterated this in Matthew 22:37 “Jesus said unto him, You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind.” It is foolish of you to think that you are going to receive lovely things from a loving Father and you’re hating. It just ain’t happening. Love everybody and love God ALWAYS, no matter what. And you can do it with God’s unconditional and unfailing love.
Laws are made and laws are broken, but there are some laws that cannot under no circumstances be broken. Take the law of gravity for instance. What goes up will come down again. And even so it is with the law of reciprocity. Reciprocity is the giving and taking of something mutually. We find the law of reciprocity in Luke 6:38, “Give and it shall be given unto you good measure, pressed and shaken together and running over shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that you put out, you will get that same measure back to you.” We also find the law of reciprocity in 2 Corinthians 9:6 “But this I say, He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.” I would like to add to this, he who says faithful, will reap faithfully; and he who sows continually, will also reap continually. You just can’t make a big one-time offering or plant a big one-time seed, and thing you are going to rap a continual blessing. TO REAP CONTINUALLY YOU MUST SOW CONTINUALLY, even during the hard times and times of crises. If a dollar is the best that you can give then give that dollar like you are giving a hundred dollar bill, and God is going to honor it as such, because you gave of your best and you gave of your last. Remember the story of the widow’s mite, of how she gave less than a penny’s worth of money, yet the Lord took notice of her. (See Luke 21:2-4 for story.)
You must believe and exercise your faith with expectancy. Expectancy is key in your receiving also. If you are waiting on the mailman to come and bring you a certain letter or package, you with certainty and expectation wait for him, because you know without a doubt that he’s coming with something for you. You are not hoping and wishing, but you are expecting. When you hope and wish for something, you are uncertain if it will happen or not, but when you expect something, you with anticipation wait for it and look for its arrival, because you KNOW that its coming. And if you believe God, if you believe His word, if you believe all that God has spoken to you, your spirit and through His word , by way of dreams, visions or other people, you ought to be on the edge of your seat expecting its arrival in your circumstances and in your life EVERYDAY.
You must open your mouth and say something. You must declare openly and boldy the word of God, the promises of God and what you believe, in the mighty name of Jesus. Don’t try to figure out with your little grain-of-salt –mind, how God is going to do the miraculous and supernatural in your life. Don’t try to figure out how He is going to move and show up, or when and where He is going to show up, with your little-grain-of-salt mind. But open your mouth loud, wide and boldly, when circumstances and everything and every body seems to be yelling at you differently than what God has said or showed you, and what you believe. I dare you to began to practice this principle and use this key. We have been created in the image and likeness of God. We have His DNA, and thus we have the same capability of using the spoken word like He did in creation, to bring the world and everything and mankind into existence. We have that same capability to speak and declare words with our mouth that will bring about a change, deliverance, blessing, etc. But we must keep doing it until we get the results that we want. Proverbs 18:21 “Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Declare life over death, declare health and healing over sickness and disease, declare prosperity and abundance where there is lack and poverty, declare strength where there is weakness, declare love where there is hate, etc. and use the power of your tongue, the power of your words, and the power of declaration, UNTIL you get see and get the results you want. DECLARE BOLDLY AND AUTHORITATIVELY, “I am healed, I am blessed and not cursed, I’m out of debt, my needs are met and I have plenty of more to put in store, I am the head and not the tail, etc., etc.
