God’s Plan of Supernatural Provision

The time has come for God’s people to break free from financial bondage. Our Father enables us to be free of every financial problem. He wants us to remove the challenges of making ends meet, a lack of steady employment, and excessive debt. God wants us to enjoy a purpose-filled life (Deut 28:1-8, 11). God’s Word is filled cover-to-cover with promises of blessings and supernatural provisions that He has planned for us to enjoy.

God doesn’t want us to be limited by our current financial circumstances. You may be deep in debt, not knowing whether you will ever be completely debt free. You may also be struggling with some longstanding financial problems and not know what to do. Or you may be free of debt but not understand God’s Master Plan for you to prosper. He does desire that we be successful and prosper both physically and spiritually (3 John 1:2). 

The purpose of this article is to enable you to understand the relationship we should have with God and our money. From here, you can develop a financial plan for you and your family, based upon fulfilling God’s purpose for you. What we do with our money can reflect our level of obedience towards God.

In the very beginning of His dealings with His chosen people, God entered into a covenant with Israel, and promised to bless and prosper them above all other nations. 

Today, we who are in the Christian Church are spiritual Israel, and these same promises belong to us. As the seed of Abraham, we have inherited these promises and they are part of our covenant with God. 

In Deuteronomy 28, we see that God’s purpose for blessing and prospering His people is clearly revealed. Verse one states that God desires to set His people above all other people. He promises to  pour out His blessings to such a degree for our obedience that through our example the world will see how good life can be when we obey Him and acknowledge that He is the only true and living God.

In verses 3-7, God’s blessings are outlined, covering many areas of our lives. The listing illustrates that He intends for His blessings to be upon us wherever we go, for our children and grandchildren—and even blessings on the job. Everything we set our hands to do will be blessed, if only we obey Him. He promises that all these blessing will overtake us (verse 2). In other words, we can expect them to come running after us. In verse 11, again we see God’s promise of prosperity. God did not plan for us to barely survive, or to worry about how we will pay the bills barely making it from one paycheque to the next. He did not plan for us and our families to suffer from the lack of necessities of life. Quite the contrary, He wants us to live an abundant life.

God’s process of supernatural provision looks like this:

You give to God as best as you can through tithes and offerings, then you will receive more blessings (or increase) from God’s supernatural provision. You then give tithes and offerings to God from the increase and you will receive even more blessings from God (Mal 3:10-12). God does not lie.  If He promises increase in your life, you will receive it. 

In the cycle of giving and receiving God will meet both your spiritual and physical needs. He will give you an increase in what you have given so there will be additional funds to spend  for both you and your family. This will also help you to contribute more to do the work of God which will result in allowing the work to “freely give” to those seeking the Truth of God. This cycle is set in motion when we have God involved in our finances. 

It’s difficult to live a life free of financial woes. It sometimes feels like every step we make in the right direction, Satan the devil pulls us in the opposite direction. To experience financial deliverance and increase in God’s blessings during times of financial crisis, here are six major steps you can incorporate into your life:

  1. Remove the spirit of fear, worry and unbelief from your heart and mind.
  2. Take your eyes off your financial problems and focus on God. 
  3. Stop depending upon yourself and rely on God as your source of total supply.
  4. Do not hold from God your tithes and offerings; give liberally, expecting God to multiply it back into your life. (Mal 3:8)
  5. Walk in faith. We must realign our thinking and walk in obedience to God. (Phil 4:13) 
  6. Ask in faith without doubting God (Hab 2:4; Heb 11:6).

God’s promise to you today is that in the midst of your financial need you can come to Him and draw whatever you need from His storehouse. God promises that in times of famine you will be satisfied. The Lord will bless you abundantly (Prov 3:9-10).

Satan will try to attack our circumstances; therefore, it is very important for us to understand that our warfare is not with natural forces—it is a spiritual warfare. Satan attempts to discourage us in many ways. He is going to attack us with negative emotions such as stress, fear, worry, doubt, weariness, discouragement, depression, and so on. Let us not be ignorant of his devices because our battle is against spiritual forces in high places (Eph 6:12-13).

Satan can be violent, so we have to prepare for him. We must have the faith to tell the devil to get his hands out of our finances. Draw near to God and the devil will flee from you (James 4:7-8). 

The worst thing we can do when in financial difficulty is to dwell on our circumstances and stop paying our tithes. Satan’s strategy is to try to get us to forget God’s tithes and offerings. But God is always there to help us break the cycle of financial defeat. One of the strategies we should use to defeat the devil and our own fears and doubt is to remember the promises and actions of God (Deut 8:18).

To maintain continuous financial prosperity, we must continue holding on to Jesus Christ and never let go of Him. When things are not going well, He is our ultimate strength in times of difficulty. We must turn to Him for continuous support and guidance. 

The Bible says, 

I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” (Phil 4:13)

In order to prosper, we must realign our thinking to God because everything that God has given to us is a resource. We just have to come to the Father and ask Him how to utilize such resources.

But remember the LORD your God is the one who makes you wealthy. He’s confirming the promise which he swore to your ancestors. It’s still in effect today.” (Deut 8:18)

Let us hear this word today. Let us heed it for as long as we live. We should always remember it is the Lord who gives the knowledge, wisdom, and understanding to attain wealth. Sometimes we interchange the term wealth with prosperity. Prosperity is not limited to monetary blessings (Deut 28:1-14). Clearly, our Lord reminds us to seek the Kingdom first, and then all those things will be added to us (Matthew 6:33-34). This perspective will help us to live balanced lives centered on God and His priorities in our lives; that’s what real prosperity is all about!

Sometimes Christians will use unethical means to achieve material riches, but we must remember that the love of money will lead us down an evil pathway (1 Tim 6:10). Prosperity does not just mean money. Do not limit God! When we limit the term, “God’s prosperity” to our financial blessings, we are limiting God (Deut 28:13).

When people do their financial planning, they often plan according to their current financial conditions. But God wants to take us beyond these limitations to a new spiritual dimension whereby we believe Him for those things that may seem impossible to us. He wants to open our spiritual eyes to see His unlimited resources that He has in store for us. As God’s plan of supernatural provision is revealed to you through His Word, you will have a better understanding of the new relationship with God.  You will no longer depend upon your own skills, abilities, limitations, or personal resources; instead you will begin to see God’s provisions for you.

Like anything else in our Christian life, we must be willing to manage our finances effectively. We must also allow God to bless and guide us in controlling our resources. When we are in control of our finances we can use God’s blessings for His glory. Do not let anything have control over you (Psa 119:133). We should involve God in all aspects of our life. Anything that has dominion over us will limit us from doing God’s work. Yet sadly, many of us have allowed our debt to bleed off revenues, tithes, and offerings from God’s Work (Deut 28:44; Prov 11:15, 22:26).  

We cannot prosper without God (Deut 8:18; John 10:10). Make use of God’s management system and techniques.  Don’t be afraid to use them (Joshua 1:7-9). Fear is a barrier to being prosperous. We should not be afraid of prosperity. Just stay in the Word.  Think it, read it, say it.

Finally it is God’s will for us to prosper in every area of life (3 John 1:2). That’s something we should never forget, especially when we are faced with financial difficulties.

    I was a bit skeptical as I began to read this article because I am very wary of ‘health and wealth’ preachers, but as I read on I realized that what you are saying is Biblical and makes sense. We have heard over and over thatcharacther is built through the crucible of suffereing. Agreed, but some of our suffering was not intended by God, Satan helps us to put ourselves in trouble when we do not follow Biblical principles such as tithing, prudence and good stewardship of our finances.

  • FMD

    Amien ! God’s will for us to prosper in every area of life !  now my finance is in dangerous, I do believe God will help me supernaturally, I will see it with my eyes this month !

  • Ccwogirslchmidt2012

    I really do like this and just am needing some comfort and supernatural blessings.  Satan has been attacking me and my family since November 2008 and no matter what I do and try nothing seems to be working.  I have lost more faith since my vehicle was stolen back in April 2011 and we were interrogated.  Please pray for us and bless us with supernatural blessing

  • Jacques

    yes, in the name of Jesus i release God’s supernatural Power in your finances – I release his super abundant provision – and call on God’s supernatural ablity to confirm this prayer of faith, with a manifestation of his power and love and grace.  I command the enemy now to take his hand off from your finances, and i pray that God will pour out his generous heart into yours and will enable generosity in you towards Gods House and People.

  • Gods Anointed

    Thank you for this article.it blessed me and also reminded that God is in control of every situation in my life,and He will not let me fall. What if you don’t have the money to pay your tiths right now but you desire to tithe,what do you do then.

    Gods Anointed.

  • Pray and tithe in faith. Just as the widow who gave her two mites, God is looking at your heart and how you give, not how much.

  • George

    Very inspiring. I am blessed in deed.Deut 28:1-14 .Thanks

  • akogwu apata

    good message reviving reminding and nourishing

  • hotzpacho

    Let me address a lot of the inaccuracies of this article:

    1. I absolutely agree that God through Jesus want us free of any financial bondage. Not because of how we live our lives, but because he is our father and Jesus became poor so we could become rich.

    2. No one quite knows how to receive the supernatural promises since the time of the apostles. After the apostles passed the supernatural provisions became less and less. Something has been lost or hidden from our understanding and i guarantee God wasn’t the one doing the hiding. Satan has worked overtime to conceal the truth.

    3. There is a distinct difference between living with “LAW” in your heart and living with “GRACE” in your heart. Law is “Do good, get good” while Grace is “getting isn’t dependent on what you do”. One is centered entirely on “your” ability, while the other is centered entirely around “Jesus'” ability.

    4. God doesn’t require you to give to him. God does not need anything, everything is already his. If the money that is printed on paper that comes from the trees that he has created, how then can we give him something he already owns? You can’t give someone something they already own.

    5. God wants you to give out of a cheerful heart not out of necessity (2: cor 9:7). Giving to receive is a necessity, not joy.

    6. You can’t remove the spirit of fear, worry, or unbelief as long as Satan is free to roam. If you could you wouldn’t need Jesus.

    7. You say stop depending on yourself, but all your requirements put all the dependence on your own ability….contradiction.

    8. You have missed the entire purpose of Tithes and offerings and instead used it as a requirement to receive. We are under Grace (Rom 6:14) and before the Law even came into existence there were only two mentions of tithing. The first was with Abraham and it had nothing to do with tithing to receive. God’s promise to Abraham had nothing to do with tithing.

    9. Phil 4:13 does not say anything about walking in obedience or faith to God. It says strength through Christ. Why you are changing the words or trying to make it mean something it doesn’t is beyond me.

    10. Again, Heb 11:6 says nothing about “doubting”. Stop adding things to scripture.

    11. You can not obey the laws of God. The Law was not given to Moses to show many how to earn his way, but to show man that he couldn’t earn his way. He needed a savior, someone who could give to them (Jesus).

    12. Do you know exactly how many commandments there are? 613, not 10. You have to obey all 613 according to God’s standards, not yours. You aren’t the judge of whether or not you live by them, neither is your priest, cardinal, minister, pope, etc. Only God. The moment you cried and feared as a child you are toast. It’s a flawless law, meaning you have to live by it every second of every day from birth to resurrection. Besides all that you have to sacrifice a lamb every year at the temple alter in Jerusalem every year. They haven’t had a temple in almost 2000 years.

    13. The word “Obey” in Deut 11:28 does not mean “do” it means “listen and to hear”.

    14. Stop with this mixture of law and grace, IE: Aninias and Sapphira. (Ananias = Grace, Sapphira = stone [the law was written on stone]). You can’t put new wine in old wine skins, vice versa. It’s either all Law or all Grace. And it’s not what you decide is law or what you decide is grace. It’s what God decides is law and Grace,

    15. the blessings you claim to have received from tithing and so called obeying are not from God because if you want to be blessed under the system of Law you can’t obey all 613 commandments. We don’t have an alter either.

    I commend you for trying to give people hope and answers, but you’re not leading them to the truth.

  • Ginette

    Dear Bastien,
    This is an encouraging article; a great reminder of who we are in Christ and how we shall live as God’s heirs. Thank you and may the Lord always inspire you to be a blessing to many!

  • Kinghenry2007

    Thank you. I agree with you. God has already done everything, so we pray and believe from a place of finished works. Grace is Christ plus nothing, not our works, not our giving or reading the bible, even though all these things are important in the life of a Christian. Under the law it was your works in exchange for the blessings, its your rest in Christ in exchange for blessings. Praise the Lord we don’t have to beg or cry to receive what is rightfully ours already if you are born again, God has already placed all spiritual blessings in your born again spirit Ephesians 1:3-8. God is at an eternal Sabbath, HEBREWS 4:9-10

  • Kinghenry2007

    thank you. Paul says let him who give do it out of a cheerful heart and not begrudgingly. Tithing according to Malachi is legalistic and gives you nothing but frustrations when u don’t see return on your tithe.

  • LonDre’

    Prayer Changes everything including the way God handles situations in your life, so don’t be stuck on the predestined things because sometimes he’s just waiting on you to have the courage to ask for the impossible. God was gonna take a mans life in the bible but the man said too God “A grave cannot praise you” God granted him more days too live.

  • dawid

    Amen! let us be rooted in the word of God , thank God for his grace but let us stop deceiving ourselves and abuse grace.

  • Daya

    according to the bible we must pay our tithes so that there may be food in the lords house, by doing this God will bless you abundantly, trust God in faith and he will work wonders in your life .Don’t lose hope, remember your past blessings and let faith arise in you. Praise and worship God in your situation as God wants to draw you closer to him.
