We are living in a season of increase but we have to truly believe that we can receive it. As a people, we’ve been through an extensive season of punishment for our transgressions and rebelliousness and it is difficult to imagine our season of restoration. The time is now. The time is now for increase so that we can take care of the needy and the poor and the prisoners. The time is now for increase to fund our initiatives to conquer more territory for the kingdom. In the midst of devastation – death of navy men, unjust court decisions, bombings in Manchester, and corruption in government, the body of Yeshua will receive increase. We have lived beneath kingdom standards long enough. The wealth of the wicked has been stored up for us. The time is now for increase, not for us to accumulate wealth for selfish gain and become as the wicked are but for us to use our wealth for kingdom advancement.
Psalm 112:1-3 MSG “Hallelujah! Blessed man, blessed woman, who fear GOD, Who cherish and relish his commandments, Their children robust on the earth, And the homes of the upright—how blessed! Their houses brim with wealth And a generosity that never runs dry.”

Each believer gets to a “sick-and-tired” point in his life at different times. But t’is the season for all to be sick and tired of wasting money. “Stop Spending!” Holy Spirit said those two words to me so loudly that it scared me. Have you heard this same message from Holy Spirit or have you too suppressed His voice speaking about your spending habits? This season seek God first about your money, your budget, and the organization of your finances until seeking Him becomes the standard in your life. He will direct our spending and give us a blue print for our finances if we allow Him. We just have to die to our flesh every time the urge to splurge comes.
1) What helps me to control my spending now is knowing what my goals are. What are your goals that are aligned with God’s will for your life? Do you want to buy a house? Start a savings? Start a business? Increase your retirement? What has God called you to do? When you write the vision that God has given you in this season and begin to work toward it, you won’t be able to spend frivolously.
2) Knowing that bad stewardship is a sin has also helped me to make up my mind about improving my finances. I would wonder why I was struggling in certain areas and God showed me how this area was continuing to be an area of disobedience for me.
3) Having a budget helps tremendously. I just started using a Microsoft Excel Budget Template to help me organize my funds. I place how much I allot for each month, including my bills at the top of the spreadsheet in a cell. I add every bill and other expenses in a left column and deduct the amount for each expense in another column. The spreadsheet subtracts from the total monthly allocation. The remaining monthly allowance is then divided up in the following categories: For example, Gas – $30 a week for gas ($120 each month); Groceries – $100 a week for groceries ($400 each month); Hair/Hair Cut – $25 a week for hair ($100 each month); Tithes – $50 for tithes ($200 each month); and Savings – $100 ($100 each month) for savings. Put each of those amounts in an envelope and do not exceed the amounts in the envelopes. Fast from shopping outside of this budget for three months – no shopping for three months. At the end of three months, you should have $300 saved. Take $100 and shop but leave remaining $200 in savings. Continue this process.
4) Knowing I want to be blessed with increase this season helps me to improve in my finances. Holy Spirit said, “How will you manage a corporation’s budget if you can’t manage your own household budget?” There are levels to this. Take care of your business. List all your debt. Pay off lowest debt. Organize your bills. Make a budget. If we want increase, we have to be faithful over a few things.
Changing our mindset about money is a process. I’m walking it out even now as I type. I don’t want to sin on purpose and that is exactly what emotional spending is – sin. We look at our lives and wonder “why” is this not going right? We’re sinning in our finances. I’m tired of the cycle. I can’t live like that anymore. I want more for me and more for my son and more for the kingdom so I’m done. Are you? Only God can satisfy the void that we try to fill with shoes, clothes, hairdos, makeup, nails and jewelry. Self-control must be exercised in this season. Take one day at a time. But God says I will not increase you if you don’t manage your money better. I’m done with spending frivolously in Yeshua’s name.
Prayer: God someone is in debt so deep that we’re suffocating. There is no earthly way out. We need supernatural relief. We repent. Help us now Jehovah!
When God gets justice for the injustice that has been done to His people, “Figurative Egypt” will be so ready to get rid of us that God will make them favorably disposed to us. And all the wealth that they have accumulated as they have oppressed us, we won’t be able to carry it all away. Now this is the Word. Receive it if you can. This Word is for the deep. It’s time for the plunder. Jené Walker#awakening #israel
Exodus 12:33-36 33 “The Egyptians urged the people to hurry and leave the country. ‘For otherwise,’ they said, ‘we will all die!’ 34 So the people took their dough before the yeast was added, and carried it on their shoulders in kneading troughs wrapped in clothing. 35 The Israelites did as Moses instructed and asked the Egyptians for articles of silver and gold and for clothing. 36 The Lord had made the Egyptians favorably disposed toward the people, and they gave them what they asked for; so they plundered the Egyptians.”
This is a call to unite all prayer warriors across the world. Be on post today, all day, even if you’re at work. If you can’t pray aloud pray silently. If you can’t speak in tongues aloud, speak in tongues silently. If you can’t confess the Word aloud, confess the Word silently. We are interceding for the following: attacks on the mind, marriages, diseases and illnesses (healing and restoration) renouncing sexual immorality especially adultery and the spirit of homosexuality, economic warfare for attacks against our finances, government and every government official and the president to hear and obey the voice of God and for their salvation, the unbelievers to come to Christ, believers to wake up and to use their weapons of warfare, peace for the people of God, for the Hebrew nation to wake up and see their identity, cancel attacks of the devil in the name of Jesus (if you’re in right standing with God), for the kingdom of God to come, pray for the spiritual gifts of believers, for the 2017 Fasts across the nation, and pray for a spiritual awakening and revival.
Don’t let your business fail completely because you’re in a bad spot right now or even if you’ve been there for a while. Start opening your mail again. Organize your bills. Close the checking and start over in a new account later. Get your papers and business in order now. Organize everything now. Pull it together now. We have to be faithful over a few things. Being faithful means taking care of our business to the best of our ability now. Your rulership over many later depends on how you’re handling your few things now. I dare you to pay your tithes right now in the mess you’re in. I dare you. Now. Tell the devil he lost again. Dr.J.
One of the biggest issues with wealth, money, and blessings is the enemy is somehow able to infiltrate the hearts of God’s people and cause them to sin against God. Often when God elevates and prospers us, we tend to forget God and make the blessing and the money our god. We begin to worship the money and material things or the gifts and forget the Giver.
Some of us wonder now why we aren’t prospering (see James Chapter 4). Ask God to reveal to you the motives of your heart. Can you handle prosperity? Will you forget God when you get the blessing? Jesus said it is almost impossible for the rich to get to heaven and this is why-we lose focus and serve god instead of God. No matter how blessed you are or become, please stay focused people of God so that ye may not perish. Dr.J.
Deuteronomy 8:19 KJV “And it shall be, if thou do at all forget the Lord thy God, and walk after other gods, and serve them, and worship them, I testify against you this day that ye shall surely perish.”
