We are the generation Paul spoke of in 2 Timothy 3:1: “This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come.” Satan has been increasing his attacks against Believers in these last days. His goal is to cause us to cave in and quit before we experience a breakthrough, and he’s using insufficiency to accomplish his task. However, you don’t have to be a victim of this vicious tactic.
The key to overcoming insufficiency in your life is to believe in and stand firmly on God’s Word, which declares that the righteous (those in right-standing with God) will be upheld. Psalm 37:18-19 says, “The Lord knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever. They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.”
Confession plays a key role in helping you reach the good life that God has for you. Freedom from insufficiency is possible if you: (1) sow financial seed as God directs and (2) use your mouth to speak the Word aloud over your life.
In Luke 6:38, Jesus says, “Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.” You must continue to obey God in your giving, even when your resources are wearing thin. Why? You reap what you sow (Galatians 6:7-9). When you sow as God directs, you position yourself to reap increase.
The widow at Zarephath is a perfect example of someone who stayed on the giving side of life even when her resources had run out. She was down to her last meal when Elijah asked her to prepare a cake for him (1 Kings 17:13). When she did, she experienced increase in her life. Not only did her resources multiply, but her son was also brought back to life! A seed will definitely meet any need you have.
Keep in mind the power of words (Proverbs 18:21). Words are seeds. Whatever you speak will come back to you in the form of either positive or negative manifestations. It’s easy to become weary and give up when the pressure is on. But if you continue to speak positive, faith-filled words about your situation, you will see breakthrough. Don’t allow the devil to oppress you with the cares of life. God is faithful to pull you through!
You don’t have to be subject to the stress of lack because you have access to Jesus’ peace! Have confidence that He will provide your every need. John 14:27 says, “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid.” Tap into this supernatural peace and rest confidently, knowing that you can triumph over the devil every time!
