2016 will be a year of unprecedented prosperity for the people of God. Great, great wealth will begin to come to those who have been standing in great faith for provision and for overflow. In previous blogs we have defined prosperity as this: God’s overwhelming desire to bless His people so we can meet the needs of humanity. This includes to be successful and flourishing, especially in financial aspects. The word unprecedented means never before known or experienced.
If you’ve read any of our previous blogs this year you’ve probably noticed that we’ve not only been going over the prophetic word for 2016 but that we’ve also added to the definition of what the word means. We do that because faith comes by hearing. Often times hearing things over and over again is critical in order to really capture what God is saying. So we renew our minds, to capture truth, to make that truth a reality. That way what’s inside us begins to define everything on the outside of us.
And with that said, I feel like this month, specifically, there is a grace to receive an overflow, especially in the area of finances. So dig into and meditate on scriptures that talk about the overflow of God. Deuteronomy 8:18 says God gives us the power to get wealth and in chapter 28 we read if we listen to the voice of God all the blessings will come upon us. Yes we want to meditate on the scriptures but I also encourage you to speak them! Speak them over your life.
I had a dream six or seven years ago in which Jesus appeared and asked me a question. He said, “Abner, don’t you know you can have what you say?” I began explaining to Him that I understood what He was saying. I even reminded Him of how my ministry started and how I trusted in Him and in the word he gave me those many years before. The Lord then repeated his question – which was really a statement. “No Abner, don’t you understand that you can have what you say?” Again I repeated my answer. At this point He asked it again, this time in a very stern voice. “NO. Don’t you know you can have what you say?”
So where are we today? We are in a year where great wealth is coming to God’s people and in a season of incredible grace for the overflow. I encourage you to meditate and renew your mind to the truth about what God has said and is saying regarding overflow. Begin to declare what He said - and not just in finances but in every area. Then you can be a blessing to other people.
We must refuse to say anything God has not said. I will say it again; this is a season of overflow! Some of you reading this blog are about to see this overflow with unexpected checks in the mail, jobs, and even rebates you had no idea were coming. So I bless you this month to receive your overflow and to be a blessing upon this earth - and to say only what God is saying.
