 God works through his spirit using his word and he works with the word through his spirit. Words come from the spirit and they either release destinies or bind it. If the spirit in you is lesser than the spirit that’s against you, you will go under. God does not give physical things but spiritual. The men that have spiritual things will always be stronger. We come to church to get the right spirit and fellowship with the right spirit to propel us to do the things of our destiny in accuracy and on time.

“Now Peter and John went up together into the temple at the hour of prayer, being the ninth hour. And a certain man lame from his mother's womb was carried, whom they laid daily at the gate of the temple which is called Beautiful, to ask alms of them that entered into the temple”; Acts 3:1-2

God does not plan that any man will carry another man perpetually. Once somebody has outgrown the baby stage, if he still needs to be carried, there’s something negative that’s responsible. When an adult needs to be carried, it’s either because he’s sick or he is under the attack of the devil.  Any system that makes you enjoy being carried is a negative one. Being carried is a limitation so don’t embrace it!

When a person is under the assault of the spirit of poverty, he’ll be addressing the condition and not the root problem.  He’ll be addressing begging and not the inability to see. The blind man in Acts 3 accepted his condition but blind Bartimaeus didn’t (Mark 10: 46-52). As long as you keep fighting, God will send help your way.

You must know your ‘kairos’ moment, when everything is arranged for you. In your ‘kairos’ moment you are supposed to do whatever it takes you to get through. Blind Bartimaeus cried until Jesus stopped! If someone asks you today, “What single thing do you need to change your story?” What will be your response?

The spirit of poverty will make you depend on the generosity of other people while the spirit of wealth will  propel you to be the generous one. Do you know what you need in life? Bartimaeus knew what he wanted; he wanted to see and not to be continually helped. He knew he was better than most of the people dropping coins for him. True help does not imprison you!

Prayer: Father, I take authority over every working of the Spirit of poverty in my life and I shut down its operation in my life in Jesus’ name.
