QUOTE OF THE DAY: “NO REASON IS GOOD ENOUGH TO EXPLAIN POVERTY”
Memory Verse: “Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well”. 3 John 2.
You are not in lack because you are black. Poverty is never a function of your background, race, sex, location or lack of education. Neither God nor Satan is responsible for your poverty. It is not genetic. As a matter of fact, these parameters have little or nothing to do with it. God has nothing to benefit whatsoever from your poverty. A prosperous you is more beneficial to the kingdom than a poor you. A blessed you glorifies God more than a wretched you. Also, an affluent you is of more benefit to the generality of mankind than a poor you.
The fight against poverty must go beyond mere having resentment or hatred for it. As a matter of fact, such hatred must reflect in your confessions, attitude and actions. Prayers are not even strong enough to break the yoke of poverty. Poverty can only succumb to the interplay of covenant forces of knowledge, focus and hardwork. These three forces deliver from the yoke of poverty irrespective of your background or location. First, you must have a knowledge of your right, both in the spirit and in the physical.

Your wealth is tied to your gifts (Jeremiah 1:5). Second, you must have a focus-what you want to spend your entire life pursuing. The earlier you know this, the better. There must always be a mental picture of your desired future.
Finally, commit yourself to hard work, while trusting God to add His own dimension to it. Your destiny will blossom. Keep flourishing!
