Are you tired of being in financial want? Are you ready to move from the lean, meager table of debt and lack and begin to sit at the King’s table of covenant blessing?
I hope you are, because God wants you to experience fullness of financial prosperity.
We’ve already talked about how Jesus didn’t just die to forgive your sins. He actually came to earth, lived, died, and rose again to pay the price for EVERY effect of sin on your life and to redeem you back to God’s glory.
And part of that glory means that, because of Jesus’ sacrifice and the price He paid during His life on earth, you have the covenant right by the blood of Jesus to walk in complete wealth and financial freedom.
Don’t believe me? I’m sorry, but it’s true. Jesus became poor so that you could be rich (see 2 Corinthians 8:9 below). And yes, that verse does actually talk about money!
God has always blessed His people:
- He blessed Abraham and made him extremely wealthy.
- He blessed Joseph and made him the prime minister of Egypt, with all the wealth and trappings that go with that position.
- He blessed the Israelites financially when they left Egypt.
- He blessed them again when He brought them into the Promised Land. He gave them houses they didn’t build, vineyards they didn’t plant, and wells they didn’t dig. He gave them gold and silver and spoils of war.
And He kept prospering His people financially for centuries, all throughout the Bible.
And actually, God has never stopped blessing His people financially. It’s just that some people have stopped receiving.
Some people have embraced a poverty spirit instead of the Holy Spirit. How do you know the difference?
- A poverty spirit gets mad when other people have money, but the Holy Spirit says He wants to bless you too.
- A poverty spirit criticizes others when have on something nice, but the Holy Spirit rejoices over that person’s blessing, knowing that there’s plenty to go around.
- A poverty spirit says God will come through for everybody else, but He will not come through for you. The Holy Spirit says all the promises of God are yes and amen, and you have the right to receive absolutely EVERYTHING God has ever promised you–and He will bring it to you!
In his book God Wants to Bless You! (Amazon affiliate link), Dr. Che Ahn writes that a spirit of poverty came into the church in the third century as a result of Gnostic heresy, which stated that everything tangible was bad and only spirit was good. Shortly after that, the monastic movement was born, and people fled into monasteries and convents, taking vows of poverty. At that point, they began to claim and teach that poverty was holy.

But poverty is not holy. Poverty is so UNholy. It is not God’s plan for your life.
God’s plan for your life is abundance. He is an abundant Father who gives good and perfect gifts. He owns the cattle on a thousand hills. All the real estate in the world, from the mountaintops of the Swiss Alps to the deepest ocean depths of the Marianas Trench, belongs to Him.
Our Daddy God is so wealthy that He paves the streets of Heaven with gold. There is nothing lacking in my God’s bank account. The universe belongs to Him.
So how could we think that He somehow likes it when His kids are poor? No. The Word of God says otherwise.
Check out these Scriptures, which all show how God wants you to be RICH, not poor:
And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day” (Deuteronomy 8:18).
“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich” (2 Corinthians 8:9).
“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it” (Malachi 3:10).
“The blessing of the Lord makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it” (Proverbs 10:22).
“And the Lord will grant you plenty of goods, in the fruit of your body, in the increase of your livestock, and in the produce of your ground, in the land of which the Lord swore to your fathers to give you.
The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.
And the Lord will make you the head and not the tail; you shall be above only, and not be beneath, if you heed the commandments of the Lord your God, which I command you today, and are careful to observe them” (Deuteronomy 28:11-13).
The Word of God is clear. (And if you study God’s plan for your finances, such as through the wonderful Bible study , you will find that God has a whole lot more to say about how He wants to bless you.)
Additional recommended resources: I enthusiastically recommend the Larry Burkett Bible study, How To Manage Your Money (click on image at left for my Amazon affiliate link).

It’s so, so important to learn God’s financial principles so that you can receive all He has for you, how to receive it, and how to manage it.

So here’s the prophetic decree of abundance of financial prosperity over your life:
In the name of Jesus, I command the spirit of poverty to come off of you right now and I ask the Father to fill you with the Holy Spirit where that was. I decree that you obey God’s Word in every area of your finances, so He can prosper you. I decree that you bring all the tithes into the storehouse, and you prove God in this, and that He opens the windows of Heaven for you and pours you out such a blessing that there is not even room enough to receive it all.
I decree that you are a good steward of God’s blessings. I decree that you will have a hunger and thirst for learning how to manage your finances God’s way. I decree a holy inspiration, motivation, and perseverance into you as you dig into God’s truth about finances.
I decree that you will have wisdom to hear the Lord instructing you and teaching you in the way you should go, and that you are a doer of the Word, and not a hearer only. From this day forward, you will handle money God’s way, and you will see with your own eyes the blessings you are receiving and the progress you are making in your finances.
I decree that you will have a mentality of abundance starting today. I decree that your spirit, soul, and body are all open to receive the fullness of financial prosperity from the Father. I decree and release blessings into you right now in Jesus’ name. I decree that, from this day forward, you are blessed financially.
I decree from this day forward that you shall prosper. I decree surprise financial blessings to you in Jesus’ name–surprise gifts, surprise donations, surprise discounts, surprise checks in the mail, and good surprises in every part of your finances.
I decree that your business prospers, that you have multiple streams of income, that you have favor everywhere you go, and that you are a radically generous giver. I decree that you have plenty of finances to do everything you need to do, plus more.
I decree increase into your savings accounts in Jesus’ name. I decree increase into your wages. I decree that you shall obey the voice of the Lord your God in every way, and everything you put your hand to shall be blessed. I call your debts paid off in Jesus’ name. I decree that you shall lend to many nations, but you shall not borrow.
I decree that you have a heart of abundance and an attitude of abundance and expectation to receive your Father’s blessings. I decree that even as you work to learn God’s financial principles, it will be easy and fun. You will be diligent, but you will not strive. You will rest and receive from your Father.
I decree that your finances must multiply and increase supernaturally in Jesus’ name.
Now speak this prophetic decree of fullness over yourself:
In the name of Jesus, I renounce agreement with the spirit of poverty. I repent for embracing it and I command it to leave me in Jesus’ name right now. Heavenly Father, please fill me with the Holy Spirit where that was.
I decree that I obey God’s Word in every area of my finances, and He prospers me. I decree that I bring all the tithes into the storehouse, and I prove God in this, and He opens the windows of Heaven for me and pours me out such a blessing that there is not even room enough to receive it all.
