This prophetic word is about the spiritual law of giving. Relax, this post is not about you giving us money.
You may or may not know this but there are actually spiritual laws that people can tap into whether they are saved or not. It’s a law in the realm of the spirit that gets activated regardless of who is doing it. One such law is the one associated with giving.
Much like you have the law of gravity, what goes up must come down, and it does matter who throws something up in the air it’s going to land somewhere.
Giving works the same in the spiritual realm. What you get from what you give may not come from the same person or place where you gave it but it will come back to you regardless.
You give, you get. It is a simple as that.
I asked Him one day how we increase financially, He told me the spiritual law that governs over finances is to …GIVE.
LOL, were you expecting something more spectacular? A stock tip, perhaps? LOL Nope! One word. It is the one the spiritual realm obeys. GIVE.
I’ll tell you what He didn’t say…give money. No, He said GIVE.
It’s a verb. It’s something you have to do that activates this spiritual law.
What I thought He meant at the time was sowing seed, tithing, you know the usual stuff, giving money to people. But later as He began to teach me more about being a giving person I realized that money was just a very small portion of how we increase financially.
Do you know how the bible is one big love letter from God? Well, next time you read it pay attention to the giving principle. It’s this thread that is weaved into every story that I somehow missed. It’s there but it’s not obvious.
I went back again a few months later and asked about something to do with money and there it was again He just gave me that one word answer GIVE.
When I started studying on this I realized that the principle of giving is all over the bible. And, it’s not just about money. As a matter a fact you can tap into financial increase with no money at all.
Luke 6:37 – 38 NLT
“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn others, or it will all come back against you. Forgive others, and you will be forgiven. Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.”
This scripture is generally used to talk about giving money but as you just read it doesn’t specifically say anything about money. I tell you what it says whatever you sow you reap in like kind. So, if you sow and apple seed you will get an apple. You show corn you get corn. It’s going to produce what you sow. It talks about being judged if you judge others, condemning people reaps condemnation, forgiving people in turn means you get forgiveness too. Then it says the degree in which you do these things is the degree in which it comes back to you. So everything that you give you will reap the same kind of thing. That is the principle of giving. So, if you want to get a house, pray for someone else to get a house. If you want to see restoration in your marriage pray for someone else that needs restoration in their marriage. Sow the same thing that you need. Here is our prayer request page, there are many requests, find one that you need and pray for that person.
Imagine yourself with empty barrels around you and each barrel can hold something different one barrel is marked forgiveness, the other is marked mercy, the other is marked kindness, the other is marked grace, the other is marked love, the other is marked joy, the other is marked finances, the other is marked honor, the other is marked favor, the other is marked …. whatever you want it to say. These barrels only get filled when you give that. You can’t actually go through life just living on money. You’re going to need more than a money barrel. FAVOR is actually currency too. You can get things with no money when you have favor. Actually favor can get you things that money can’t buy, did you know that?
If you look at the story of how Job was restored in Job 42 you will see that God did not require of him to make any sacrifices of bulls and goats because Job didn’t have anything. He lost everything.
So, what did Job give? Prayers. His friends who did have something were told to give 7 bulls and 7 rams. All Job had to give was his prayers. Some of you don’t have anything, and God already knows this so there is no need for you to feel guilty or allow anyone to make you feel guilty to give something that you don’t have. Give prayers!
Giving Prayers = Financial Blessings
I know it seems like that couldn’t possibly be this simple but it worked for Job. And I believe he ended up with the double because of who he was praying for. You know, imagine if you lost everything and you are sitting there in the dirt with nothing and your friends show up under the influence of this leviathan spirit (Job 41) and they start accusing you of all kinds of things.
You know what most people would say? “Are you crazy? They have plenty of that already. Nothing happened to them. I am the one who lost everything here. I am the one that is suffering. I am the one in need of the rams and goats not them. I’m going to just keep praying for myself”
This is what most people do when they are suffering. They pull inward and they can only see and think of themself. They get stingy. They shut down. I’m here to tell you that this is actually when you should give more. Again, I’m not talking about money.
Job’s prayers for his frenemies at the lowest point in life brought double for him financially.
Prayers don’t cost you a penny. When it’s prayers for your enemies or your persecutors, it gets doubled. God took Job’s prayers for his friends and turned it into a financial blessing.
Why do you think the Lord told us…
Luke 31:27-36 NLT
27 “But I tell everyone who is listening: Love your enemies. Be kind to those who hate you. 28 Bless those who curse you. Pray for those who insult you. 29 If someone strikes you on the cheek, offer the other cheek as well. If someone takes your coat, don’t stop him from taking your shirt. 30 Give to everyone who asks you for something. If someone takes what is yours, don’t insist on getting it back.
31 “Do for other people everything you want them to do for you.
32 “If you love those who love you, do you deserve any thanks for that? Even sinners love those who love them. 33 If you help those who help you, do you deserve any thanks for that? Sinners do that too. 34 If you lend anything to those from whom you expect to get something back, do you deserve any thanks for that? Sinners also lend to sinners to get back what they lend. 35 Rather, love your enemies, help them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then you will have a great reward. You will be the children of the Most High God. After all, he is kind to unthankful and evil people. 36 Be merciful as your Father is merciful.
The whole concept behind this scripture is giving. Give to someone who doesn’t deserve it. He says do it and don’t expect anything back. Don’t expect anything in return. This means just make it a lifestyle. Be a generous person. Just give.
God never asked Job to pray for his friends. Job did it because that’s who he is a person. Job is generous.
Do you know anyone that is a generous person in all areas of their life that suffers lack? Think about it.
Even God follows this law, imagine you created a people for yourself. Perfect! Then they messed up and when He could’ve easily just destroyed us all instead of doing that He decides to put on flesh and give Himself
John 3:16 “For God so loved the world that He gave…”
My Goodness! And think about all the souls, people, deliverance, healing, restoration that we have reaped through His one act of giving.
This is a spiritual law that pay dividends.
I think most churches and ministries miss it when talking about giving and it’s always about the money. The Body of Christ misses the blessing of these other things that are associated with giving. People go to church and they tithe but then they don’t show mercy to others and they are unkind. But they think they are covered because they gave money. It doesn’t work like that because one day they are going need mercy and they will need someone to show them kindness but because they didn’t give that to anyone, there is none available for them.
Proverbs 11:25 NOG “A generous person will be made rich, and whoever satisfies others will himself be satisfied.“
Here is another beautiful scripture
Blessed is he who considers the poor;
The Lord will deliver him in time of trouble.
2 The Lord will preserve him and keep him alive,
And he will be blessed on the earth;
You will not deliver him to the will of his enemies.
3 The Lord will strengthen him on his bed of illness;
You will sustain him on his sickbed.
When you considered the poor (poor naturally or in the spirit) and the helpless, when you become helpless against your enemies or sickness, GOD Himself will step in and save you because you have a barrel full from helping the helpless. There’s something to pull from. It’s like a spiritual bank account that you can use when you need it!! How about turning this one into a prayer if you are sick? If you gave to those who were helpless then you can use this scripture to ask for your healing. Or if you need deliverance from your enemies. I’m pretty sure many of you didn’t know the fruit of your giving could be manifested in these other ways. This just shows you that your giving doesn’t always come back the same way you gave it.
As opposed to..
Proverbs 21:13 “Whoever shuts his ears to the cry of the poor Will also cry himself and not be heard.”
Why? There’s nothing in the barrel for you. It’s empty.
Proverbs 11:24-25 Passion Translation
Generosity brings prosperity,
but withholding from charity brings poverty.
Those who live to bless others
will have blessings heaped upon them,
and the one who pours out his life to pour out blessings
will be saturated with favor.
There you have it! How do you get favor?? Bless other people. Pour our blessings on others in your words and deeds and you will receive the favor of God upon your life. It’s a spiritual law which means it will work for everyone – saved or unsaved. The goal here is to be a generous person. Give on every level, in every area. Do not be a stingy person that just takes and takes and gives nothing back. Prayers cost you absolutely nothing. Start by giving prayers, give kindness, give gentleness, give mercy, give grace, give love, eventually you will see favor in your life and you may have doors open for financial increase, then you give finances, give humility instead of pride, this can go on and on. Just give in every area.
Start giving in the areas where you can give and then increase it to all areas of your life. And this should go beyond you and your family, this is more than you and your family. Give to everyone. It gets doubled when it’s your enemy.
Do you have people attacking you? Witchcraft attacks? I have a challenge for you, for the next 21 days every day when you get up pray a blessing prayer over them and their families. Every day. After the 21 days, I want you to come back and tell me how it’s going. Keep in mind you can’t pray for them one minute and then talk bad about the next minute to your friends. Fast from that for the 21 days.
Romans 12:20 Passion Translation
“If your enemy is hungry, buy him lunch!
Win him over with kindness.
For your surprising generosity will awaken his conscience,
and God will reward you with favor.”
This is the decade of the mouth. Use your words wisely because you are about to live that, and reap what you are saying for the next 10 years.
