You have to banish lack in your life.
By Segun Idowu on April 24, 2020
Think for a moment about a lifestyle without lack of resources in your life.
What would it look like?
Is it a concept that is alien to your thinking, only you can answer that. However the idea of lack is strange to what God designed for mankind. Truth is there is no lack on this planet, everything we need is already here.
Can you stretch your mind to believe that?
The earth was created to provide abundance
The bible reveals to us that before God created man, He prepared already everything man will need to sustain him on this planet. There was no lack but abundance until the fall of man due to sin of Adam and Eve.
However God’s plan for man to live in abundance never changes. He is the same yesterday, today and forever Hebrews 13:8.
When He initiated a covenant with Israel through Abraham, He guaranteed them provision and abundance provided that they follow His dictates. That is why David who understood that covenant stated that The Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack. Psalm 23:1 Amplified Bible. Lack is not from God, there is no lack in heaven and the will of God for earth is to produce abundance.
Poverty is from the devil, poverty did not show up until man fell and handed over the earth to the devil.
In the New Covenant ratified by the blood of Jesus which is better than the Old Covenant Hebrews 8:6 we have assurance of God’s provision. God promised to meet all our needs.
But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6.
This scripture gives us insight into what God says He will do about our needs. He shall definitely supply our needs according to His riches and not according to anything else like our status, where we live, or the status of any other economy but His. God does not want you to lack anything good and desirable and the reason why He set that in place is because of His love for you. Unconditional love.
Let your mind agree with God about abundance
We should agree with God instead of what we see in the world and declare that every day that the Lord will provide for us, we shall not want of any good thing at all. God’s power and prosperity is available to us to meet every need whether, spirit, soul or body. However we need to find out our part of the covenant and do it in order for our needs to be met.
The bible says Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the first fruits of all thine increase: So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine. Proverbs 3:9, 10. And in Malachi Chapter 3 verse 10 Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.
God also said that He is the one who has given you power to get wealth Deuteronomy 8:18. Every believer has the power to banish lack from their lives.
The choice is yours not anyone else
Now the choice is yours whether you want to walk in abundance or not. God will not force you to walk in abundance if you don’t want it and are not committed to it. So our response to these infallible words of God will cause His promises of provision to be established in our lives.
Don’t be dismayed or discouraged by what appears to be lack in your life. The Psalmist by the inspiration of the Holy Spirit said The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. Declare the same; put in motion the power of God by obeying the plan He has put in place to meet your needs. Say it out loud to yourself every day.” The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. I shall not want of good things, I shall not want of wisdom and direction, I shall not want of material and financial blessings because the Lord is my shepherd”
God want to lead you like a shepherd will lead his sheep to your place of success, blessings and destiny. Yield to Him. He is your Shepherd. You shall not want.
