The things we do not want to talk about in church is exactly what you talk about most often outside of church. Money. Sex. et cetera.
These are the things you struggle with the most and get offended by.
- Abundance is not financial
- Prosper doesn't start in your hand, it starts in your heart.
- We always see from the outside-in. God sees and works from the inside-out.
Samuel's confusion of David's brother not being anointed the next king. 1 Samuel 16:7
The outside is not unimportant, though importance begins on the inside. There is no good in looking “holy” if you are not holy on the inside.
- Holy must be balanced between the outside and the inside.
- Show/style without substance is worthless.
- Substance without style is unfulfilled.
God never reveals unless He intends to heal. John 4:6-19
It takes vulnerability to give your heart.
How can you thirst when you are the supply?
God has placed a wellspring inside you. The well inside you nourishes Him. As you pour out, He works through you in others and ultimately re-fills and blesses you in to prosper.
You cannot thirst in a drought as the well inside you is full to pour out.
Take what you have and pour it out. The wellspring inside you replenishes supernaturally.
“Nor do people put new wine in old wineskins; if they do, the skins burst, the wine spills and the wineskins are ruined. No, they pour new wine into freshly prepared wineskins, and in this way both are preserved.” Matthew 9:17
God does not replenish until the vessels are completely empty. If you are holding on to a reserve, God cannot refill. He only fills to full from empty. He cannot full of the previous filing still exists. The anointing are pours are mutually exclusive; they cannot coexist. The previous fill must be completely used before a news full can be attained. Their components and purposes are not compatible. You do not fill dissimilar content in the same jar and maintain their purity. Previous contents must be removed, used, cleaned, and cleared.
