If you believe God's word then flourishing in todays economy is a promise that every believer should be able to depend on for his/her family. After all, we read in Isaiah 55:11 the Lord telling us, " so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it."
If God makes a promise then He will deliver. His reputation is at stake whenever He makes us a promise. God is very jealous when it comes to His glory and His reputation and he goes to great length to protect both. There are a number of verses in scripture that remind us that God has planned not only to provide us salvation through the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ but to allow us to share in the inheritance of Christ which enables us to be flourishing in todays economy.
Tapping into the promises of God, beginning with our salvation, requires us to first believe with our hearts and then to confess with our mouth what we believe. This one principle is clearly spelled out in Romans 10:9; If you declare with your mouth, 'Jesus is Lord', and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved."
Again, salvation is obtained through declaring and believing. Every gift from God can be accessed the same way. You have to stir up your faith by speaking the word of God and then you can expect to maintain a position where you are flourishing in todays economy.
There are some things with my life that I wanted to see changed in 2015. Things that had just remained the same year after year and where I was flourishing. in todays economy. I believed that God wanted more for my life than what I was experiencing. So I began to search the word of God and petition Him for the things that I needed and desired. These were issues in my life that I wanted to address for the glory of God and His kingdom.
The more time I spent time in His word with a specific purpose the more my faith was stirred up. The more my faith was stirred up the more time I desired to spend in prayer. The more time I spent in prayer the more the spirit of God began to show me ways to be flourishing in todays economy. Round and round it went until one day I asked God to show me the next step towards seeing the manifestation of my petition.
I had a desire to see greater opportunities for me to witness to people I did not know and to pray with them for their healing so they would be flourishing in todays economy. This was spurred by a recent revelation that people would be more open to the gospel if they could witness the manifested power of God. After all, how can one deny God in light of a supernatural answer to prayer.
I had already experienced a few instances but I wanted to see more. Since praying for more, God has opened a door for me to minister at a senior living center. It certainly was not what I expected.
From talking to others in the ministry I've learned that you have to be willing to do what God ask of you in the beginning before he will open other doors for you. It's about showing that I can be trusted with kingdom treasures. I am now seeing that there is a tremendous need at this center for a manifestation of God and my faith has been stirred to believe God for the supernatural and the ability to be flourishing in todays economy. I keep my faith stirred up and strong by meditating on and quoting the word of God.
At this senior living center most of the residents are not in the best of health. Many are recovering from a hip injury from a fall, others are struggling with breathing issues and mobility, etc. Supernatural healing is definitely in need by all and so I am careful to watch over my confession in the presence of these seniors. I have come to learn that "death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof". (Proverbs 18:21)
Why would I be spending time at a senior living center if I'm believing God for a turnaround so I can see my family flourishing in todays economy? Well, I believe that as I focus on the needs of Gods kingdom then God will focus on my needs. In Matthew 6:33 we read, "But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well."
These seniors have a real and urgent need to see their health flourishing in todays economy. They need to know that it is not God's will for them to be burdened with infirmities in their golden years. This is where I get excited. I look for the Holy Spirit to move when I pray for their health each time I'm there. As supernatural healing takes place through prayer each senior will then have a testimony to share with the other residents and the glory of God is spread. That's my desire.
You might be thinking, "but what about me, how can I be sure that God wants to bless me and cause me to be flourishing in todays economy and also every of my life?" I can tell without a doubt that God's word is clear on this. It says to us all that are born-again believers that "Christ has redeemed us from the curse...that the blessing of Abraham might come on us through Jesus Christ" (Galatians 3:13-14).
One thing I know about Abraham's blessing is that it wasn't a once in a while kind of blessing. It was a blessing that Abraham experienced all the time and in every area of his life. Since we are heirs of Abraham by faith we are also heirs of this same blessing.
As a result of what Christ did at the cross we are already blessed with every spiritual blessing and the favor of God so that we can be flourishing in todays economy. This blessing is irreversible. Our part is to simply know what is ours and to claim it daily. Why? Because we have an enemy who wants to cast doubt on us and cause us to believe that these blessings are not for us everyday. "He comes to steal, kill and destroy" (John 10:10). If you let him he'll do just that, he'll rob you of the effects of your blessing. He'll get you to believe that it's not God's will to prosper you this year.
He'll try to get your mind off of God's word and onto your circumstances instead which leads to doubt and unbelief. I'm here tell to you that you don't have to put up with that. Don't let him steal your turnaround this year. Instead, you can "resist the devil and he will flee from you" (James 4:7). Take up the sword of the spirit which is the word of God and go to war against those negative thoughts regarding lack of finances, ongoing illness, fatal diagnoses, a troubled marriage and constant defeat.
Make your declaration boldly each day and throughout the day. Make up your mind that this is your year to flourish and everything that isn't right in your life will be turned around. The blessing you need is available. Jesus has bought and paid for it and it's available to you. Yes, He does want you to enjoy it. He went to a lot of trouble to secure it for you. So go ahead and believe His word.
The one thing that is needed for a supernatural economic turnaround is revelation from the word of God rather than information from our current system. With this revelation we can walk in the kingdom of God here on earth and operate in it and the world system can't prevent us from flourishing in todays economy.
Let's take a closer look at a passage from Luke's gospel (Luke 5:1-3) to glean some vital revelation of what was truly happening beneath the surface at first glance. In verse 1 we see that people were hungry for God's word, they were pressing in to get as close to Jesus as possible.
In verse 2 we learn that the fishermen were washing their nets instead of pressing in with the rest of the crowd to hear God's word. They had another unproductive day; labored all day with nothing to show for it, most likely they were facing bankruptcy.
What they didn't realize was that the answer to their dilemma was right in front of them but unfortunately they weren't listening to the vital message that Jesus was preaching. Just like so many of us today, the word of God contains the solution to flourishing in todays economy if we would just take the time to press in and listen closely.
In verse 3 we see that fortunately for Peter and the others Jesus was well aware of their predicament and was ready to provide them with relief to save their fishing business. Jesus asked Peter for the use of his boat. In spite of being frustrated from another unproductive day Peter agreed to let Jesus use his boat to preach from. It would later turn out to be the most productive thing Peter would have done all day.
Now let's take a look at verses 4-7 from this same chapter. Once Jesus has finished preaching to the multitude He receives word from the Father to launch the boat into the deep. So that's exactly what He instructs Peter to do. Jesus tells Peter to " launch the boat into the deep and let down your nets for a catch." Remember they had just spent an entire evening trying to catch fish with nothing to show for it. The idea of launching out into the deep made no sense in the natural. After all, when your fishing in this area you do so in the shallow water, not the deep.
Here is the key to Peter's turnaround. His response to Jesus reflected obedience in spite of the natural circumstances. Peter responded to Jesus by saying, "nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net". Peter was obedient to the word from Jesus. Our lesson to learn from this is that the word from God changes everything about our situation. When you move according to the word of God you do so by faith and that faith causes us to expect the supernatural state of God where we are flourishing in todays economy and we receive it.
What supernatural result did Peter and his crew experience? In verse 6 we read, they caught a great multitude of fishes and they broke their net". Wow! What a difference from a previous night of catching nothing. In John's gospel we are told that one net could hold 153 large fish. Think about that. God not only filled the net but he filled it with "large" fish. When God blesses you He does it in a big way so you see that it is His desire for you to be flourishing in todays economy.
One other thing I want to mention about this passage that I want you to walk away with. The action Peter took was based on "heavenly revelation" not "earthly information". Peter was planning to call it a day based on his earthly information. Fortunately for him he chose to act based on heavenly revelation and it turned the entire fishing industry around for that area. Heavenly revelation will give you ways to do things that have never been thought of before. It will have you always flourishing. That's what I call "insider information".
Whenever you experience a supernatural economic turnaround in your life it is not only life-changing it is also a humbling experience. Peter had this same experience. When the nets loaded with fish were brought into the boat Peter was so moved by this experience that he said to Jesus in verse 8, "I am a sinful man".
In other words, he acknowledged that his life had just been impacted by God and yet he was not worthy of such intervention by a holy God. You too will be touched in the same way as you trust in God's word and begin to see the supernatural state of always flourishing in your life. It will humble you while building your faith and drawing you closer to God.
There is one other fact that must be considered when we read about Peter's first encounter with Jesus. Jesus was operating out of the blessing mentioned in Genesis chapter 1:26-28. He demonstrated his dominion over the "fish of the sea" that was given to Adam before the fall. His dominion literally catapulted the fishing industry in Galilee to always flourishing by operating the Kingdom principles.
And as a result there was a supernatural economic turnaround which allowed for Jesus to call Peter and the others into the ministry as disciples. This huge catch had them always flourishing and prepared them to leave their families in a very secure financial position so they could leave everything and follow Jesus.
Jesus literally took care of their families and the truth of God's word was demonstrated to these first disciples; Psalm 34:9-10 "those who fear Him lack nothing. Those who seek the Lord lack no good thing". Psalm 23:1 "The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing". God's word is dependable. It is his reputation. Trusting in Him will have you flourishing in todays economy.
