You know how full of love and kindness our Lord Jesus was: though he was so very rich, yet to help you he became so very poor, so that by being poor he could make you rich. — 2 Corinthians 8:9
After you accept Jesus and you become a Christian, you have to understand that poverty is not God’s will, just as sin and sickness, and disease are not God’s will. Poverty should not be allowed in your life. There are many believers who believe that Christians ought to be poor. This belief is based on a lack of understanding of God’s Word.
Poverty is not the absence of money or other things that you need to function in life. It’s the result of a lack of ability and power. The Bible tells us in Deuteronomy 8:18 that "God gives us power (ability) to create wealth." Once you accept this truth of God’s Word in your spirit and allow the light of this truth to dominate your thinking, it’ll give you a new mindset. It’ll enable you to rise up in victory and walk in the realm of more than enough. The Bible says, "Jesus became poor so that we, through His poverty, might become rich" (2 Corinthians 8:9).
On the cross, Jesus took upon Himself not only the sins of the world, but He also took the effects of sin as well, one of which is poverty. This is the reason every Christian ought to submit to God’s will and reject poverty and lack. Use your God-given dominion and refuse the poverty victim life; live in overflow and victory in Jesus' name!
Confession: I am a child of God. God is my father. He is not withholding anything good from me. I live in the realm of superabundance and overflow; my life is showing forth evidence of God’s love for me. I rule and reign in life through the finished work of Jesus! Hallelujah!
