Eighty percent of the letters I receive in my office concern financial problems. This is how I know that many of you are still struggling in this area of your lives. Did you know that God wants to prosper you in every area — physically, mentally, spiritually, and financially?
You may say, “Brother Cerullo, I've struggled with finances — I've battled for so long. How can I really know that God wants me to prosper?”
Listen to the Greek translation of 3 John 2: “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way. And that your body may keep well even as I know your soul keeps well and prospers.”
In this passage God reveals His desire for you to prosper, be in good health, and for your mind, body, soul, and spirit — including your finances — to be kept healthy, even as He has provided for the salvation of your soul!
It is time for spiritual harvest in every area of your life — and that includes your finances. This is God's will for you! Regardless of the financial pressures you face, before you can experience the breakthrough you need you must know it is God's will that you prosper. Whatever crises you face regarding your finances you must take your eyes off your circumstances, set your focus on God as your divine Source of provision, and act upon God's promises to you in His Word.
You must face your financial problems with a solid scriptural foundation concerning God's will for your finances. If you are not convinced that it is God's will to supply your needs and prosper you, then when Satan attacks your finances your faith will waver and you will begin to worry. You must settle in your heart and mind — to know beyond a shadow of doubt — that God wants you to prosper.
There are specific reasons why people do not move into their end-time financial harvest…
…Some don't believe God wants them to prosper financially.
…Some continue to rely on their own ability instead of the supernatural power of God.
…Some refuse to sow during times of crisis. They hoard their limited resources instead of giving sacrificially to God.
…Others wait too long and the timing of the anointing passes them by. The supernatural cycle concludes, and they have missed it!
You may have struggled with financial problems so long that you have given up hope of anything ever changing and tried to just adjust to your situation. Remember the crippled man at Bethesda? He had given up all hope of getting well, but then one day — in the perfect timing of God — he got his breakthrough. He was totally healed, took up his bed, and walked! God wants to touch your finances supernaturally in the same way. Don't lose hope.
