The world is changing at a very fast pace. Economies are revolving and evolving. Each country that is making it ‘big’ finds a way to boast its economic prowess in many ways and avenues. Having said that, even in economies where there is ‘milk’ and ‘honey’ many people still remain marginalised.
Through my travel and experiences I have realised that a lot of people leave the Third World countries and come to the developed economies in a hope to enhance their lives financially. Having said that, many do make it and many don’t. Those that don't make it, you can take them from one country to the next but the same problems that were with them in Country A will follow them in Country B, meaning the problem is not with the countries but the people themselves.
Till they address spiritually what they need to address then they will continue to run from one country to the next. For e.g in many families there is a strongman. Till that strongman is confronted their hard efforts will be wasted and thrown into the ash heap.Jesus was very clear, no man can take the goods belonging to the strong man till he binds him. So family strongmen are one of the reasons why the glorious prophecies of abundance that come to many each year never come to pass. But those who locate the strongman and confront him, they will take the goods like Jesus said in the bible. I hope you realise I paraphrased here.
Also interesting to note is the fact that many people can be better off despite where ever they go. Entrepreneurs are known to go in to any location and find ways to create income and create businesses. This may be at odds with the fact that those economies are deemed to be struggling economies.
In John 10:10, it says the thief comes to steal, to kill and to destroy. This shows us there is a battle going on here. This is one of the key scriptures when it comes to spiritual warfare. That verse applies to many aspects of people’s lives, the thief comes to steal their health, joy, peace and the list is endless.
The truth of the matter is that there is spiritual warfare in finances. Many innocent and God loving people are in financial trouble. This is one of the areas that unbelievers use to poke fun at Christians. Im sure you know plenty of people who don’t believe in God who are financially loaded. Whilst at the same time, there are people who love God but can’t pay their bills or struggling all the time. I know there are seasons, sometimes people struggle for a reason and then they are back on their feet again. However, I m referring to those perpetual financial hardships that make the marriage bed nasty, those ones that make a person shrink in the trenches of financial hardship.
This is war and unless believers wake up to this, then it’s another story. How many Christian businesses are going down, whilst those of unbelievers seem to prosper. Let’s face reality most of the cutting edge businesses and technologies are owned by unbelievers. However, there is an army of financial warriors on the horizon. Who are lavish givers and have a full mastery of how the world is structured, some of them preach and some of them you will never see them on t.v preaching but they are effective financial warriors. They don’t need glory from any man. They walk into a church and give huge amounts and walk out without getting any recognition from any man, in fact they want to be anonymous. Their God is the one who gives them rewards.
There is spiritual warfare in finances, and every child of God must know this and refuse to tolerate any form or shape or kind of lack. The truth of the matter is that God is a God of abundance and there is spiritual warfare in finances. Whatever your financial situation, know God’s desire for you is abundance, if you stay with the truth and do what you are meant to be doing and fight the good fight of faith, you will win this financial war. Even if you have trillions in the bank, in God there is still more. Having awareness that there is spiritual warfare in finances is a key essential truth that will enable you to understand many things and also why so many glorious prophecies that many people receive annually never come to pass.
