Greetings Kingdom Citizens,
Grace be unto you and peace be multiplied to you through the knowledge of God, and Jesus our King Lord.
What a mighty God we serve, and what a glorious plan God has for our lives, and He has tucked it away in the revelation of His Word. I am so glad that He has chose Loretta and I to take the Word of Faith in the Kingdom of God to the Body of Christ!
We live in a world where a MC Donald's job pays higher wages than 75% of the jobs world wide! Most of the world seem to be in predicaments that seem to have no way out, and we don't know what to do. It seems that more we try to hold on the more we lose. This is because there is a a lack of knowledge concerning the crisis that we face, and the changes they are forcing us to make. The Word declares that “understanding is a wellspring of life.” Prov. 16:22
By understanding our purpose from The Word for being here we can glean from the very crisis itself, and use it to our advantage. The Chinese word for “crisis” is the word “opportunity.” This is all about how they see crisis. Jesus said that when the storm or crisis comes it beats on both houses, but the one which was build on His Word stood steadfast. We don't have to crumble in a crisis, we do have a powerful option. You see most of our crisis are caused by mismanagement. I said most not all of them. Your faith is only as strong as the crisis it survives!
"These are the generations of the heavens and of the earth when they were created, in the day that the LORD God made the earth and the heavens, And every plant of the field before it was in the earth, and every herb of the field before it grew: for the LORD God had not caused it to rain upon the earth, and there was not a man to till the ground." Gen 2:4-5
You see above that the reason man was put on the earth was to till it. That word “till” is the Hebrew word “to manage.” Adam faced a crisis when he failed to manage the garden. He was no longer deemed the manager, and was put out of his management position, and lost all that he had. Hear the Word from the master.
"For nothing is secret, that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad. Take heed therefore how ye hear: for whosoever hath, to him shall be given; and whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken even that which he seemeth to have." Luke 8:17-18
Jesus is giving a principle truth! He says that whoever manages what is given them will get more to manage, and whoever fails to manage what is given him from him will be taken even that what he thought he had. Failure to manage may be personal but it not private. Adams failure to manage led to sin entering into the whole world! But there is good news.
The key to overcoming a crisis is to survive it, and the way to do that is to stand on the Word in spite of counter influences and strong opposition to your vision dreams and calling. The economic crisis came because of men who mismanaged the mortgage sector of real estate, and it has effected the whole world.
Joseph managed his gift (interpreting dreams) to the point that it got him out of prison and promoted him to the palace. Once he got there he managed the worlds economy with the wisdom of God and saved the world from starvation. You see, more was given him because he managed what was given to him.
Isaac was in a double famine, and he was blessed and responsible for a multitude of cattle, and sheep, and oxen. Not to mention all the men and maid servants he had to keep care of. He was responsible for there upkeep, and God told Isaac to sow seed in a double famine and in the same year he reaped 100 fold! That means he was the only one with the food and the money because now everyone must come through him for their sustenance. He also managed to reopen his fathers wells that had been covered up by the jealous Philistines. So he had food money and water because he managed the Word God gave him, and the things God gave him. These men only became famous for the crisis they survived.
We don't have to fail to manage what the Lord gives us. We can master our destiny by agreeing that God put us here to manage our resources, and He put us in Christ to manage the blessing. The crisis of losing your job can be the door to discovering your work. The job paid you a salary, but your work will pay you what you are worth. Your job is what you are trained to do, and your work is what you are born to do. Repent to the Lord for mismanaging the things He has blessed you with and to restore the gift of management to you again. Believe you received it when you prayed and thank Him everyday for the power to manage more than ever before. Solomon simply asked God to give him wisdom to manage all those people that God gave to his authority, and God blessed him with much more. God made him a gazillionaire!
I trust that this Word of Faith message has been a blessing to you, and like all good things pass it on. Thank you for all the prayers and seeds of love sown into this ministry. May the hundred fold be active in your daily experience in Jesus name.
Yours In "The Blessing"
