A good man leaves an inheritance to his childrens children, but the wealth of the sinner is stored up for the righteous. (Proverbs 13:22, NKJV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Notice, God has already laid up contracts, houses, businesses, promotions and good breaks. They already have your name on them. If youll keep honoring God and making room for them, then eventually they will find their way into your hands the hands of the righteous.
That means right now something is headed your direction; not bad breaks, not disappointments, not lack, not mediocrity. If you have accepted Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, then you are the righteous! Increase is looking for you. Favor is looking for you. Good breaks are looking for you!
My question is, are you making room for it? Are you taking off the limits in your thinking? Are you preparing for increase? Get rid of any old thoughts that are telling you, Youve gone as far as you can. You never get any good breaks. This sounds good today, but this is not for you. This is for everybody else. Youve made too many mistakes. You come from the wrong family. There will always be voices that try to talk you out of it. When you look at it in the natural, your own thoughts may tell you, Its impossible. Theres no way. But thats when you have to rise up in faith and embrace His promises so you can make room for the blessings He has in store for you.
A Prayer for Today
Father, today I take the limits off and open my heart to You. I believe Your Word and believe that You have blessing and provision prepared for me. I receive it by faith today in Jesus name. Amen.
