Yesterday, I was praying and working on the next post in our financial rebirth series. As I was writing, the Lord gave me this prophetic word about your finances to share. I believe it will bless you!
I heard the Lord tell me: “Pray specifically about your finances every day.
If you were a soldier keeping watch over your castle, you wouldn’t go out only every other day to watch for enemies. You would report to your post daily at the appointed time, and you would watch attentively and keenly for any approaching enemies.
I want you to pray about your finances just as diligently as a soldier keeps watch over his castle.
A rich man’s wealth is his strong city (Proverbs 10:15a). If you want to be a rich person, you have to think like a rich person. You don’t have to love money to do this. I would never want you to love money, for the love of money is the root of all evil (1 Timothy 6:10). But I give wealth to you to be a blessing.
Wealth IS a blessing. But remember that the thief comes only to steal, kill, and destroy. The more you have to steal, the more attractive you are as a target for the enemy.
I do not want you to be afraid. Fear is NEVER from Me. I give POWER, love, and a sound mind. But I am trying to teach you how to handle wealth.
Think about how I do it. The cattle on a thousand hills are Mine.
Everything is Mine in heaven and earth. But do I let things run off to their own devices? NEVER! I keep watch over even the smallest sparrow. That is why all things are safe in My hand.
So I want you to emulate Me when it comes to the wealth I have given you. I want you to take wealth management as seriously as I do. Remember that the first task I gave mankind was to steward the world I created. You were My original caretakers. So now, in this season, I need you to come back to the position I originally prepared for you.
You are still My caretakers, and I need you to steward everything I give you to the absolute best of your ability—which is My ability, because Christ is in you.
It doesn’t matter if you think you have little or much. What I am interested in is stewardship.
If you take care of what I give you, I will give you more to steward. Remember that everything is Mine, and I am looking for faithful stewards to be My hands and feet on earth and help Me care for what belongs to Me.
So will you help Me? Will you do what I have asked you to do, knowing that you own nothing and I own everything?
Will you obey Me and keep your heart right before Me—as a steward, and not as an owner?
And if you will, will you begin to keep watch over what I have entrusted to you as faithfully and diligently as I do?
If you will do these things, your reward will be great both in this age and in My Kingdom in Heaven.”
Wow, God. This word really spoke to me. Beloved Presence seeker, does this word speak to your heart also? If so, please leave a comment below. Let’s respond to the Lord and re-commit ourselves to Him to be His hands and feet in stewardship!
