Abundance mentality...Pt.1

In this message today there is freedom for those of you that have suffered from a scarcity mentality. A person with the kind of mentality is the person who never gives but they only have enough for themselves. A person with a scarcity believes there is never enough money, resources, opportunities. You don't understand that as a child of the Creator the supply is endless, overflowing and never ending. You see as children of God what we have is not limited to natural means but we have access to supernatural resources.

I grew up feeling like there was never an inordinate amount of love, attention or support. So no matter what little I had of anything I always wanted to keep it to myself. Most of us for some reason or another struggle with being the kind of people that will only GIVE if we are sure we will get it back. We can only share with those who share with us.

There are several scriptures that tells us a LITTLE with God is always more than a lot...
2 Kings 7:3-6 (NLT) Now there were four men with leprosy sitting at the entrance of the city gates. "Why should we sit here waiting to die?" they asked each other. "We will starve if we stay here, but with the famine in the city, we will starve if we go back there. So we might as well go out and surrender to the Aramean army. If they let us live, so much the better. But if they kill us, we would die anyway." So at twilight they set out for the camp of the Arameans. But when they came to the edge of the camp, no one was there. For the Lord has caused the Aramean army to hear the clatter of speeding chariots and the galloping of horses and the sounds of a great army approaching.

John 6:10-13 "Tell everyone to sit down," Jesus said. So they all sat down on the grassy slopes. (The men alone numbered about 5,000.) The Jesus took the loaves, gave thanks to God, and distributed them to the people. Afterward he did the same with the two fishes. And they all ate as much as they wanted. After everyone was full, Jesus told his disciples,"Now gather the leftovers, so that nothing is wasted." So they picked up the pieces and filled twelve baskets with scraps left by the people who had eaten from the five barley loaves.

You must decree right now to be free from the mentality of lack, limitations and scarcity. And let it be established unto you.

We serve the God of more than enough. We are children of the Most High who always does above all we can think or ask according to His glorious power at work in us.

Be Blessed, Manie
