Preparing Your heart for the harvest

Galatians 3:13-15 Christ redeemed us from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us, for it is written: "Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree." He redeemed us in order that the blessing given to Abraham might come to the Gentiles through Christ Jesus, so that by faith we might receive the promise of the Spirit.
In case you need to be reminded of the blessing that Abraham received it is recorded in Genesis 12:2-3 (AMP) And I will make of you a great nation, and I will bless you [with abundant increase of favors] and make your name famous and distinguished, and you will be a blessing [dispensing good to others]. And I will bless those who bless you [who confer prosperity or happiness upon you] and curse him who curses or uses insolent language toward you; in you will all the families and kindred of the earth be blessed [and by you they will bless themselves].
I know a lot of people have a problem with the message of wealth and riches being taught in christianity so if you are that person you may want to click that little x in the top right hand bottom of that page NOW.
If you are still here then God bless you and know that not only God does want His people blessed completely in body, soul, mind and spirit but He wants us rich to further service His kingdom agenda and for our personal convenience and pleasure. I would like to share some scriptures for us to meditate on to increase our faith to receive and see the manifestation of wealth and riches in our lives.
Before I give you these confessions which I am sure you have read and confessed somewhere else I want to tell you that you can't expect to see a harvest when you are pleading the promises and violating God's principles. The word of God works when you speak it and believe it from a heart that is pure and hands that are clean. Forgive who you need to and repent for you what need to. I believe that God wants to give but we have to check our motives before we are able to receive from Him. You can't make yourself right but receive the forgiveness, grace, love and mercy through your faith in Christ Jesus.
Ask yourself what purpose will money serve for you right now? Is it to make you or someone else happy? Do you right now have a kingdom purpose for money? Are you NOW a good steward over that which God entrusts to you?
Like David in Psalm 51:7 & 10 we ask you Lord to cleanse us with hyssop, and we will be clean; wash us, and we will be whiter than snow. Create in us a pure heart, O God and renew a steadfast spirit within us. Also like David we pray according to Psalm 139:23-24 Search us, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. See if there is any offensive way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Let's meditate on those scriptures and tomorrow we will be ready to confess the prosperity scriptures. Be Blessed, Manie
