A poverty spirit isn’t about insufficient resources, it’s about insufficient relationship. I don’t write that flippantly; we know what it is to not have ends meet. But it’s never worked to really change our circumstances through an increase in finances alone. We’ve continually needed to grow our understanding of who God wants to be for us through the lack, and who we can become in his abundance. We’ve learned a meager concept of who God is in your life means believing in meager possibilities, striving for a meager vision, and seeing meager results.
Being fully resourced and equipped includes finances, but it begins and never ends with love, the greatest treasure of all. God is love, and therefore, so are his children. When love becomes your foundation, your mindset, your reset when it seems you have nothing else, you’re always the richest person in the room.
“Look with wonder at the depth of the Father’s marvelous love he has lavished on us! He has called us and made us his very own beloved children” (1 John 3:1a).
You are so loved. Keep looking in wonder for the ways God is lavishing his love on you, who he wants to be for you right now, and how he’s transforming, empowering, and blessing your finances, circumstances, and relationships. God’s got this, because he’s got you.
