Growing Prosperity: 5 Things You Need to Abundantly Receive the Abundance of God!
Is Your Measure of Prosperity Limited by Your Ability to Receive?
by many human factors,
including our ability to receive.
If we were to enjoy the abundance of God
according to His willingness and ability to give,
there would be no poverty among us; for surely there is no lack in God!
The Giver and The Receiver
If you were given the choice to prosper according to your ability to ask and receive, or according to God’s willingness to give, what would you choose?
Who would even hesitate to choose the generous giving of God? We cannot even want a blessing that God has made available as eagerly as He wants to give it to us!
Our asking is limited by human factors. And our boldest request is sure to be small compared to God’s unlimited willingness to give and His boundless ability to perform what He wills.
“Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us.”
— Ephesians 3:20
God is infinite, but it is not enough that we acknowledge the infinite abundance of God. We must also believe that He is infinitely generous to give and bless us out of His abundance.
So let me ask you: Why are Christians so poverty stricken? Their God is the Most High God, possessor of heaven and earth, and rich beyond the powers of man to comprehend. Well of course, the problem is not with God the giver. The problem is on our receiving end, so let’s take a look at that.
5 Things You Need to Abundantly Receive the Abundance of God:
Only a little faith is required to believe that God is infinitely abundant. However, to believe that God is a generous giver as well as the possessor of infinite abundance requires an advanced faith.
We need to be convinced that God is generous, goodhearted, kind and ready to pour out His blessings upon us. To gain a personal revelation of this and increase our faith, meditating on the Word and immersing ourselves in the Scriptures is a must. This will help validate our expectations.
Faith needs to be exercised to be effective and help us grow in our ability and capacity to receive abundantly. So believe God for financial abundance, spiritual abundance, and also abundance of love, joy, and peace. Have faith in God to prosper in every area of your life.
2. RECEPTIVE MINDSET
A receptive mindset to prosper is needed to receive in a greater capacity. This requires changing our focus from a scarcity mentality, to a more than enough mentality. The world would have us focus on lack, shortages, and loss to destroy our abundant mindset.
But, God is the God of more than enough and we should not put limits on Him. Our focus should be on the abundant promises in His Word.
Whatever you lack, believe God for it and expect to receive. Believe that God will supply all your needs; believe that He meets your needs and provides for those who seek Him.
A serious responsibility goes along with the abundance that is manifested in our lives. Selfish stewardship over the gifts, talents, and blessings we receive can destroy their usefulness and our ability to receive more.
The gifts we have been blessed with are meant to be used to benefit others; not only ourselves. We are blessed to be a blessing.
Generosity opens the door to receiving. Giving and receiving go hand-in-hand. The more we give the more we receive. A generous heart is the heart of God and those with a generous spirit are blessed.
“Give, and it shall be given to you. Good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over… For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”
— Luke 6:38
It is impossible to be too thankful to God, but it might be good to try. It is God’s will that we give thanks in everything. (1 Thessalonians 5:18) Those who maintain an attitude of gratitude also keep their ability to receive wide open.
Now what? Are you ready to receive in a measure more in keeping with God’s liberality? If so, then it is time for you to make these five things part of your life and abundantly start receiving the abundance of God.
May your ability to receive continue to increase and move you into an abundant life of growing prosperity!

Expect Abundance – How to Use Expectation to Trigger the Law of Attraction!
Increase the Flow of Wealth Into Your Material World
What are you doing to generate increase?
Wealth will not come into your material world…
until you first expectantly visualize the wealth in your mind.
But what does that really mean?
Before we can begin to overcome the poverty surrounding us in our external world, we need to claim victory over the impoverishment buried deep within ourselves. Prosperity begins with an inward awareness that an unlimited supply abounds within the spiritual realm all around us.
“It’s almost as if there is an invisible reservoir of abundance in the universe that can be tapped if you will just obey certain spiritual laws.”
— Norman Vincent Peale
It is impossible to feel poor with an understanding and consciousness of being surrounded by the infinite God of the universe; a God that never lacks. The lack that we experience in life is simply caused from our own limited awareness.
The Light Bulb Story
There is a story told of a poor couple that moves into a small village and is astonished to discover their new home is lighted by electricity. They had no prior experience with the power and force of electricity and they never saw an electric light before.
After several months, the couple adjusts to this new found discovery when a salesman stops by and recommends they upgrade their 8 watt bulbs with 60 watt bulbs; to better meet their needs. Once the new bulb is plugged in, the entire room is illuminated.
The couple never imagined, in their wildest dreams that the source of this new flood of magnificent light had been there all the time. They didn’t know this abundant increase of light could come from the same current that was feeding their 8 watt bulb.
Plugging Into Abundance with Expectation
The truth is; most of us are even less aware of the power available to us than this couple was of the electric power current. We never dream that the infinite, abundant, current which surrounds us could flood our lives with light more magnificent than the most powerful light bulb.
In order to experience increase we need to plug a larger, more prosperous, expectant idea into the current of the infinite abundance of God. Unfortunately though, most of us strangle our supply with negative energized thoughts of doubt, fear, and poverty; which only cutoff the inflow of prosperity.
Now is the time to change that negative, habitual, pattern of thinking. Remember, the stream of plenty flows toward the expectant mind. We must live by faith expecting to receive.
Firmly establish the desired goal in your mind and live expectant. Expect good things to happen. Expect to be blessed. Imagine already being in possession of wealth and develop the prosperity you seek in your mind first. Know where you are and where you are going; and expect to get there!
Allow your expectation to trigger the attractive force that will help move your desired goals in your direction.
“As a man thinks in his heart, so is he.”
— Proverbs 23:7
Let the law of attraction help manifest your prosperous thoughts.
Remember: As you think means the innermost thoughts of your heart; which you control. That is what you expect, what you attract, and what you will ultimately receive.
May you live by faith, expecting to attract a life of growing prosperity!

Prosperous Living – Shortcut Your Path to Wealth by Acknowledging the True Source of Abundance!
Who Do You Acknowledge and Trust to Supply Your Needs in Life?
on the path to wealth.
One of the primary shortcuts,
in reaching our destination,
involves acknowledging the true source of abundance.
One Infinite Source
There is only one true source in the universe that holds unlimited supply. God it the true source of all wealth; including financial wealth and spiritual and physical prosperity.
It is important to understand that when we acknowledge God as our source, temporary financial struggles no longer need to dictate our outcome. Why? Because, there are many ways and means that God can use to supply our needs. And His supply never runs dry.
God is the source and everyone else is His instrument. Many people make the mistake of thinking that their job is the source of their supply. But they need to realize that God is the source, and He simply uses their work as a means to let the funds flow to them.
“My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches.”
— Philippians 4:19
Notice it says ‘My God’, not the company you work for. God is your source.
An Invisible Reservoir of Abundance
Norman Vincent Peale talks about an invisible reservoir of abundance in the universe. This is a great image of the abundance of God.
As we continually acknowledge God as the source of our supply, we’ll find that we are divinely guided on our path to wealth. God is able to make a way when there seems to be no way. Realize it is our choice to recognize God’s power and ownership over everything. And remember we are only stewards of what He supplies us.
Putting our faith and trust in a job, a person, or any other income source, has been proven to be a letdown at one time or another in life.
Prosperity is the result of our choice to accept and trust that God’s ways are higher than ours. When we live by His ways, they will guide us on the path to wealth and allow us to tap into the invisible reservoir of abundance…
We will then be like trees planted by rivers of water and prospering in everything we put our hand to. (Psalm 1:3)
Make no mistake about it: We will never go wrong acknowledging God as the source of our supply. However, be fair warned, if we choose not to, we can expect a lot of detours on our path to wealth.
May your eyes always be fixed on God as your source and may your life be filled with growing prosperity!
