Abundance prayer isn’t about the power of my belief, but about the power of God working in my life. Remember, God works in mysterious ways and what may feel painful or decidedly NOT like abundance right now, may be preparing me for a spiritual abundance, like greater patience, kindness, endurance or leadership skills.
It could also be preparing you for a future abundance. Remember the principle of stewardship found in Luke 16:10?
“If you are faithful in little things, you will be faithful in large ones. But if you are dishonest in little things, you won’t be honest with greater responsibilities.”Luke 16:10 (NLT)
Don’t Forget These Three Things As you Pray:
- God is not Santa Clause who gives you what you wish for because You are good.
- God is not a genie in a bottle granting wishes.
- God is not Amazon Prime bringing what you ordered in two business days.
