"'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 NKJV
Listen carefully, you cannot be blessed by God and remain poor: it is practically impossible. "The blessing of the Lord makes one rich!" But you see, there are different types of blessings; there's one for health, there's for success, there's for leadership, childbirth, etc. And there's one for prosperity. Yes, it's possible to have all; in fact, God wants us to have all; the truth is that He has blessed us with all blessings already!
Let me tell you, when God has blessed you, you will never have to ask for more blessings because the blessing brings excessive surplus (abundance!). You really cannot exhaust it! Look at the widow Elisha helped, the Bible says that she sold the oil, paid her debt, and lived on the remaining proceeds with her sons. I didn't quite see that until now; what it means is that the proceeds she got from the sales of the oil lasted her a lifetime! She was never broke again!
2 Corinthians 9:8 says, "And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work." Hallelujah! I declare today in the name of Jesus that you will never be broke again in your lifetime! Lack becomes a stranger in your life in the name of Jesus! You are blessed and it is becoming evident to all in Jesus name! Amen!
