As we get into the second week of our prayer and fasting season, we are looking unto the Lord for His divine abundance in every area of life. ” For we know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for our sakes He became poor, that we through His poverty might become rich”. 2 Corinthians 8:9 (NKJV).
God has wonderful promises for all His children and Jesus obtained all that will make us shine on this side of heaven, when He was nailed to the cross for us. We have been redeemed from poverty and shame. As the above scripture “2 Corinthians 8:9” says, Jesus became poor that we through His poverty might become rich. As we pray this week let us appropriate the blessings that have been carefully and lovingly prepared for us by our Heavenly Father.
In the mighty name of Jesus, we come against every stronghold of poverty. We break every shackle of poverty that might be in anyone’s life in Jesus name.
Scriptures for the week
Please let us pray and meditate along with the following scriptures.
Psalm 23:1 (AMPC)
The Lord is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack
For the Lord God is a sun and shield; The Lord will give grace and glory;
No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly.
2 Corinthians 8:9 (NKJV)
For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.
25 “Therefore I say to you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink; nor about your body, what you will put on. Is not life more than food and the body more than clothing? 26 Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they? 27 Which of you by worrying can add one cubit to his stature?
28 “So why do you worry about clothing? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow: they neither toil nor spin; 29 and yet I say to you that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 Now if God so clothes the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is thrown into the oven, will He not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? 31 “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ 32 For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. 33 But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.
9 Oh, fear the Lord, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him. 10 The young lions lack and suffer hunger; But those who seek the Lord shall not lack any good thing.
3 Trust in the Lord, and do good; dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness. 4 Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.
1 Samuel 2:8
He raises the poor from the dust and lifts the beggar from the ash heap, to set them among princes and make them inherit the throne of glory. “For the pillars of the earth are the Lord’s, And He has set the world upon them.
1 Chronicles 4:9-10
9 Now Jabez was more honorable than his brothers, and his mother called his name Jabez,[a] saying, “Because I bore him in pain.” 10 And Jabez called on the God of Israel saying, “Oh, that You would bless me indeed, and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that You would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!” So God granted him what he requested.
18 Their soul abhorred all manner of food, and they drew near to the gates of death. 19 Then they cried out to the Lord in their trouble, and He saved them out of their distresses. 20 He sent His word and healed them, and delivered them from their destructions.
3 I will give you the treasures of darkness And hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the Lord, who call you by your name, I am the God of Israel.
They shall not be ashamed in the evil time, and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.
They looked to Him and were radiant, and their faces were not ashamed.
God bless you,
