BLESSINGS

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Proverbs 3:1-26

Wisdom is the principal thing;… Exalt her, and she shall promote thee: she shall bring thee to honour, when thou dost embrace her.

Proverbs 4:7,8

It is important for anyone who wants to experience divine provision to see poverty as a curse. In Deuteronomy 28, Moses listed the curses that would come upon Israel if they disobeyed the Word of God. One of the curses was poverty and lack. The Bible says in John 8:32, that you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. The truth of God’s Word is what will liberate you from every curse and frustration.

There is a law that teaches that whatsoever a man sows, that shall he reap. This is the law of reward for hard work. If you work hard, the law will be fulfilled and you will reap the blessings of prosperity. God longs to bless His children with unbeatable prosperity. There is no short cut to experiencing God’s blessings.

Thank God for His Word. In Him is life and the life is the light of humanity. Within the Word of God, you will have direction for your life. As you study the Word, God will give you wisdom to escape from the curse of poverty. You will escape from the global and sectional curses that are in operation in this world! Divine provision will be yours! Wisdom shall promote and establish you in unbeatable blessings!

People will speak about how you have unbeatable blessings. I see God giving you unbeatable prosperity now! I see the curse of poverty breaking in your life right now! From this moment, walk out of the bondage of lack and failure! You are a child of the King! You are blessed with unbeatable prosperity!

RENEWAL

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: 1 Samuel 19:9-18

And I will restore to you the years that the locust hath eaten …

Joel 2:25

Michal was a woman who had two husbands. She was happily married to David for some years, until her father, Saul quarrelled with David, causing him to flee from their marital home. Michal even helped him escape (2 Samuel 3:14-16).

David became a fugitive and when it looked as though he was never going to return, Michal married another man called Phaltiel. Due to circumstances beyond her control, Michal now had two husbands. Obviously, this is not the ideal will of God for anyone.

There are many women like Michal. When you were young, perhaps peer pressure made you give in to numerous relationships. God understands your background. God knows that there are people who remain virgins because they have never walked into the circumstances that you did. God understood and forgave Michal. Woman, it is not your fault! Do not condemn yourself. Rise up and walk into a new life.

Perhaps it is now obvious that you married the wrong person! Perhaps your children have the wrong kind of father because of the mistake you have made. Perhaps you are at a daily risk of acquiring AIDS. You wonder, “What will happen if my children are left without a mother, in the midst of their years.” Do not condemn yourself. The grace of God can keep you and give you a way forward. Our God is a God who makes all things work together for good. Perhaps, like Michal, God will restore you to a place of honour.

SEEDS

Dag Heward-Mills

READ: Hebrews 4:12

All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:

2 Timothy 3:16

Teaching is powerful. It drives away demons, mental diseases, blindness, uncleanness, pride, stupidity, lust, spiritual problems and poverty. The sword pricks the demons and drives them away. “…and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God…”(Ephesians 6:17).

Since the demons do not want to be hurt by the sword of the Word they do all they can to stop you from taking in the teaching. That is why sometimes demons make you sit in church and sleep, lest you hear the teaching. Hearing comes before healing! (See Luke 6:17, Mark 4:14).

A seed is planted when you hear the Word. If the preacher says, “You shall be blessed and prosperous,” a seed is planted in your life. The words of a teacher are seeds, which grow and become mighty trees. The reason many people in my church want to be pastors is because of the seeds I have planted. What you plant is what you reap.

Even in ordinary life you realize that the things we say about our children come to pass as they grow up. As you continue to call your child an angel he grows up to have a sweet spirit and vice versa.

As you tell your congregation it shall be well with them, that the Lord is their keeper and the shade upon their right hand, these promises come to pass. “The Lord is your helper. You shall live and not die. It shall be well with you. You shall have the baby you thought you would not have.” These are seeds that will grow!
