50 Week Study on Prosperity - Week 7: Supernatural Provision

This week I am switching things up a bit. I have just restarted another blog of mine: Christians In Business (CIB), so I'll be continuing the 40 week fast for financial freedom & peace on the CIB blog while I continue the 50 week study on prosperity here on this blog. So without further adieu....(CRCADDXJQXG2)

Just as a reminder, the study on prosperity was started by Pastor George Pearsons from Eagle Mountain International Church, in Fort Worth, Tx. So here we go with week 7:

Supernatural Provision

A. Matthew 17:24-27 - Money in a Fish's Mouth
1. Demonstration of supernatural provision - "Bring it on, birds!" Testimony Tommy Williams shared several years ago how he spoke to the birds to bring him money.
Based upon 1 Kings 17, Tommy started finding money around the house after he went out and hollered at the birds.
A 15-year-old was so impressed with this story that he decided to try it. He asked the Lord for $10 for missions.
He went out, spoke to the birds and commanded them to put it in a tree in the backyard. The first day he discovered 65 cents, the second day $2.35, and the third day $7. Over the next two months, he found a total of $440 in the tree!
2. Foreign to natural man's thinking
3. Unusual, unlimited, accelerated supply from heaven
4. Supersedes the realm of impossibility
5. God has supernatural ways to fully supply every need in the face of lack, shortage and a bad economy.
a. He makes the way when they say there is no way.

B. What We Must Do to Experience Supernatural Provision
1. Enlarge our capacity for supernatural provision.
2. See God supernaturally supplying the need.
3. Feed on the Word.
4. Renew our minds.
5. Exercise faith.

C. Faith-Building Scriptures for Supernatural Provision
1. James 1:17: "Every good gift and every perfect gift [AMP - free, large, full] is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
2. Ephesians 3:20-21 (AMP): "Now to Him who, by the [action of His] power that is at work within us, is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly, far over and above all that we [dare] ask or think [infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes or dreams] - to Him be glory in the church..."
3. Philippians 4:19 (AMP): "My God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus."
a. Supply in the Greek - fill up, make full, furnish liberally, fill to the top so that nothing shall be wanting, fill to the brim so that nothing shall be lacking
4. Psalm 68:19: "Blessed by the Lord, who daily loads us with benefits, even the God of our salvation."
5. Isaiah 55:1: "Every one that thirsteth, come to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price."

D. Examples of Supernatural Provision
1. Genesis 22:6-14: God supernaturally provided a ram for the sacrifice.
a. Verse 14: Abraham called the name of that place, "The Lord will provide."
2. 1 Kings 17:1-6: God supernaturally provided ravens to bring food and drink to Elijah.
3. 1 Kings 17:8-16: God supernaturally provided a one-year supply of food for the widow in the midst of a famine.
a. Verse 14: The barrel of meal and the bottle of oil would not be empty until the rain returned.
b. Verse 15: She, he and her house did eat a full year.
c. Verse 16 (NLT): No matter how much they used, there was always enough left over in the containers.
4. 2 Kings 4:1-7: God supernaturally provided supernatural debt cancellation for the widow.
a. The woman kept pouring oil from a small pot into as many empty vessels as they could find.
5. 2 Kings 6:1-7: God supernaturally caused a borrowed, lost ax head to float to the surface of the water.
6. John 2:1-11: Jesus supernaturally turned water into wine.
a. 180 gallons of wine
7. John 6:5-14: Jesus supernaturally multiplies the fish and loaves and feeds 20,000.
a. Word from the Lord through Brother Copeland, "You are going to be the ones who God uses to supernaturally feed the lost when disasters come. Only, it is not going to be like it was in the past. In many cases, you are not even going to need the trucks and airplanes. In a lot of cases, you are just going to take one little meal and divide it and divide it and divide it."
b. Jesus touched the loaves and fishes and they supernaturally multiplied.

E. Galatians 6:7-8 - Sowing Is a Supernatural Action
1. "Those who give shall walk in the ways of the supernatural."
- Kenneth Copeland
2. When you sow into the kingdom of God, you reap from the kingdom of God.
3. Giving and tithing are supernatural acts.
4. Expect to reap supernatural things.
5. There are many supernatural streams of provision and income available in God's kingdom - believe and receive!

So folks, there you have it, week 7 of our study on prosperity. Be sure to check out the CIB blog for week 7 of the 40 day fast for Financial Freedom & Peace.

God bless..

50 Weeks of Financial Freedom & Peace & Prosperity: Week 6

After another short delay (sorry but I've been a very busy gal lately), I am once again back to continue 2 studies that I've combined into one. The first is a 40 week fast (originally a 40 day fast that I've been taking weekly: 1 thought a week instead of 1 thought a day). The fast was started by Pastor Gregory Dickow, from Life Changers International Church in Chicago, IL. The second study was a 40 week study, now a 50 week study, that I've been taking weekly: 1 thought a week instead of 1 thought a day). The study was started by Pastor George Pearsons, from Eagle Mountain International Church in Forth Worth, TX.

I have been combining these 2 studies as I don't often have time to post on this blog more than once a week (also to give you, my valued reader, time to soak in the richness of these 2 studies). So for the 3rd week I'm sharing both the 40 week fast as well as the 50 week study on prosperity.

Here we go with the fast:

"I can't succeed in this economy."

This week, we're fasting from the thought that says, "I can't succeed in this economy."


1. You have the power to succeed in any economy. Believe it. Deuteronomy 8:18 says, "...God has given you the power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant." Notice what God gives you: the power to get it. This promise is for YOU. Meditate on it.

2. Tap into the ROOT to success-meditating on the Word of God. Psalm 1:1-3 says, "...As long as you flood your mind with the Word of God, God will fill your life with success." Your success is connected to the Word of God, not the economy.

3. Expect open doors. That's the favor of God. He opens doors for YOU that no one can close (Revelation 3:8). He wants to overtake you with increase and favor. (Psalm 115:14) Favor surrounds YOU like a shield. (Psalm 5:12) Fill your mind with FAVOR-EXPECTATION.

4. You have a covenant with God. This is what makes you different. Abraham, Isaac and Jacob all succeeded in times of FAMINE and economic trouble. (Genesis 24, 26 & 28) You have been promised the same blessing as them! (Galatians 3:29) Expect it!

5. Refuse to let the economy or anything else determine your limitations and possibilities. ASK SUCCESS. THINK SUCCESS. EXPECT SUCCESS. It will always come. (Ephesians 3:20)


I have the power to succeed even in the worst economy. God will establish His covenant in this earth through me. I choose to fill my mind with the GOOD news rather than the current news. The Word is my meditation, day and night. I expect open doors. They are coming to me every day, somehow, someway. I have a covenant with God. I think big success; ask big success; and I expect BIG success, in Jesus' Name!

Now on to the 50 week study on Prosperity:

Our Relationship to Money

A. The Role of Money in Our Lives
1. Money issues can be a source of stress and pressure.
2. They control lives, attitudes and emotions.
3. Some are slaves to money-driven to make it and keep it.
4. We must straighten out our relationship with money.
5. Goal: Financial Attitude Adjustment

B. Matthew 6:24-33-Settle This: I Serve God. Money Serves Me.
1. Genesis 1:29: Seed was designed by God to serve us.
2. Psalm 104:14: Seed is for the service of man.
3. Mark 10:17-22: Example of a man serving money
4. Mark 12:41-44: Example of money serving a woman
a. 2 Corinthians 9:6: This is what she did.

C. 1 Timothy 6:10, 17-19: How We Conduct Ourselves With Money
1. Verse 10: The love of money is the root of all evil.
2. We don't love money-we love God.
3. Verse 17: We don't trust money-we trust God.
4. Verse 18: We are givers of money-not takers.
5. Money is a tool to help others.

D. My Confession of Faith
I settle this issue right now.
I adjust my financial attitude.
I do not serve money.
I am not a slave to money.
I serve God.
Money serves me.
I do not work for money.
Money works for me.
Money doesn't control me-I control money.
Money doesn't rule me-I rule money.
Money doesn't dominate me-I dominate money.
I fearlessly tithe as I am told.
I boldly give as I am led.
Money-you serve me.
Money-you obey me.
Money-you multiply, increase and produce maximum harvest.
Harvest-I command you to come to me now-in Jesus' Name!

God bless..
