TOPIC: My Cape of Financial Good Hope
(Mountain Of Fire and Miracle Ministries)
Bible In One Year: Numbers 35-36; Mark 10:1-31
FIRE SCRIPTURE: Nahum 1:3-7
MEMORY VERSE: “According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:” – 2 Peter 1:3
Somewhere at the Southern tip of Africa, a massive land projects into the area. It was once a cause of anxiety to sailors who tried to sail there with their ships. This was because very adverse weather conditions and storms prevailed there. Therefore, that place was called Cape of Storms. A Portuguese Captain resolved to find a safe route through those treacherous storms so that his people in Europe could reach the East Indies safely to trade with the people there. This would save money and time and it was shorter than the other route, through the Mediterranean Sea. The Captain succeeded and renamed the area the Cape of Good Hope.
We all have financial storms one time or another in our journey through life such as lack of money to eat, lack of money for the children’s education, lack of money to build one’s house, lack of money to own a car, lack of money to invest in business or to save and so on.
The storms should not be a thing of worry to genuine Christians because our God had created a safe passage through the storms of life for His children. The Bible says, “The Lord has His way in the whirlwind and in storms” (Nahum 1:3). This means He always has a safe passage in every storm of life.
Hugh Stowell, a song writer, says in one of his songs, “From every stormy wind that blows, from every swelling tide of woes, there is a calm, a sure retreat, t’is found beneath the mercy seat”. This means God is our shelter in the storms of life.
God willingly and happily does many good things for His children. Many of them we do not know, like how we fall asleep and wake up. God does these things to manifest His love for us. The Bible says “He has given us all things pertaining to life and godliness”. (2 Peter 1:3). If we look closely at this text, we will see that God is “not giving” (present tense), “will give” (future tense) but “has given” (past tense). This can only mean that all we need to live a prosperous and righteous life has already been given to us through Jesus Christ. God’s gifts and promises to His children are always conditional.
So, what must we do in order to have a safe passage through financial storms and be blessed with prosperous life?
Repent from your sins and ask for forgiveness.Live a transparent life.Give alms and help poor brethren.Pray and read your Bible daily.Pay your tithes and offerings and first fruit regularly.
God bless you as you do these things, in Jesus’ name.
THERE IS NO LACK FOR THOSE WHO OBEY THE FINANCIAL LAWS OF GOD.
You will never lack any good thing in your life.
Financial storms in my life, cease, in the name of Jesus.
My tithes, usher me into prosperity, in the name of Jesus.
My offerings, refuse the spirit of poverty, in the name of Jesus.
Financial storms, sweep away the enemies of my prosperity, in the name of Jesus.
Yoke of lack, break, in the name of Jesus.
I oppress poverty with my tithes and offerings, in the name of Jesus.
My tithes and offerings, bring me bountiful harvest, in the name of Jesus.
