The Spirit Of Abundance
The Changed Life Project begins when you agree to receive the seed we are sowing in your heart. As we said, if you agree with us on this, then we can proceed. This post is a way to refresh ourselves of the conversations we had that planted the seed in our hearts. Again, what is the seed?
“You are already abundant.”
That’s the seed. You are already abundant. That means, you believe that you are already wealthy, healthy, loved, joyful and overflowing. All imaginable expressions of abundance, not just financial. Anyone who believes this has the seed of abundance in their hearts. When you have the seed in your heart, then we are ready to do business together.
“Abundance is not what you have,
it is who you are.” #ImageInMe
The Spirit of Abundance
“It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life.” – John 6:63
Spirit is life. Words are spirit. Words are life. The spirit of abundance, therefore, is the words of abundance. You become your words. Your words create your world. Thus, we are to listen to our words whether we are overflowing with abundance or we have been blurting out poverty. Our words are spirit, and they define the kind of life we live.
“Death and life are in the power of the tongue, And those who love it will eat its fruit.” – Proverbs 18:21
Another way to read the passage is to say that the power of life and death over you is no longer in God or Satan, but it is in your words. What you say out of your belief releases authority either for God to bless you or for Satan to ruin your life. Your words are spirit. Your words create your world. When we worry, we magnify our fear and calls them to become a reality of our lives. How do we worry? Here’s how…
“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ “ – Matthew 6:31
We worry by “saying” what we fear. Thoughts of fear, impossibilities, uncertainties will keep crossing our minds. But let it stay there, don’t say it. Stop speaking them. Or else you will keep releasing the wrong spirit into your life.
“If you have done foolishly in lifting up yourself, or if you have thought evil, lay your hand upon your mouth.” – Proverbs 30:32 (KJV)
Cover your mouth. Don’t release the spirit of poverty when thoughts of unbeliefs and impossibilities are running around your mind. Do not let the devil use your own authority against you, don’t say his words. Instead, come against it.
“For ‘He who would love life and see good days, let him refrain his tongue from evil, and his lips from speaking deceit.’” – 1 Peter 3:10
That nails it. You want to see good days? Do you love your life? You want to see good business days ahead of you? Watch out for the words that’s coming out of your lips, it is for your good and protection. And when choosing business partners, what are the words being spoken by your prospect’s tongue? You may be speaking abundance and victory but your prospective partners keep contradicting your spirit by their words of poverty and defeat.
His Word Is The Seed
The words of Yahushua Messiah, Jesus Christ our Lord and King is our life and abundance. The Word who became flesh and dwelt among us, has given us an abundant life. To not believe His Word for you is to reject his promise of an abundant life.
“I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.”
– John 10:10
We are already abundant, we are to believe and live from this reality in our hearts and minds. If you received His offer of salvation by grace through faith, if you believe His offer of healing by grace through faith, then you should also believe His offer of abundance by grace through faith.
“According to your faith let it be to you.”
– Matthew 9:29
Faith is to believe and not doubt. Faith in God’s grace simply means you are fully convinced that God is able to do for you what he promised. He promised you abundance, then believe it in the same way that you believe his promise of salvation and healing. Then act according to your faith or belief. That’s the seed of abundance. Here’s how the Apostle Paul affirmed this truth.
“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.” – 2 Corinthians 8:9
The spirit of abundance in us means we are to agree with this. We receive this by faith. And since faith comes from hearing, we have to speak this to ourselves and to each other.
“And since we have the same spirit of faith, according to what is written, “I believed and therefore I spoke,” we also believe and therefore speak.” – 2 Corinthians 4:13
We speak words of life and abundance to each other because we believe what we say. Words are spirit, and words of abundance means releasing the spirit of abundance. This is the seed we plant and nurture in the hearts of everyone participating in the Changed Life Project.
Sow The Word
“The sower sows the word.”
– Mark 4:14
Speak life, hope, abundance, faith and grace to people. Speak healing to the sick, speak blessings to prospects, customers and partners in need financially or materially. Sow the word because the Word is the seed.
“Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.” – Luke 8:11
