WHAT MAKES THE PALM TREE TO FLOURISH IS WITHIN, PASTOR GODWIN.
Psalms 23:5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
There is a vast difference between a wealthy man and a wealthy Christian. for the wealthy Christian is only a steward of his wealth and he dispenses of it as the Lords bids him.
Yes, God’s blessings start from within. For God is a Spirit, therefore, most things HE gives you direct are not spiritual too. It is from within you are born again; John 3:6 That which is born of the flesh is flesh; and that which is born of the Spirit is spirit. It is from within you are given the power to become the son of 1:12 But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: it is from within Apostle Paul bore the mark of Christ; Galatians 6:17 From henceforth let no man trouble me: for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus.. It is from within peace that surpasses understanding flows. When Jesus knocks to come in He wants to come into you and sup with you [spiritual ] not a fancy dinner for two in a five-star Revelation 3:20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.
Psalms 23:5b thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.
The psalmist once again captures the ways of God with this psalm. There was something inside the cup before it could ran over, overflowed. It is what is inside the cup that manifest outside; it is what God places inside of you that manifest outside. Isaac demonstrated this process in the book of Genesis. Genesis 26:17-22 ‘And Isaac departed thence, and pitched his tent in the valley of Gerar, and dwelt there. And Isaac digged again the wells of water, which they had digged in the days of Abraham his father; for the Philistines had stopped them after the death of Abraham: and he called their names after the names by which his father had called them. And Isaac’s servants digged in the valley, and found there a well of springing water. And the herdmen of Gerar did strive with Isaac’s herdmen, saying, The water is ours: and he called the name of the well Esek; because they strove with him. And they digged another well, and strove for that also: and he called the name of it Sitnah. And he removed from thence, and digged another well; and for that they strove not: and he called the name of it Rehoboth; and he said, For now the LORD hath made room for us, and we shall be fruitful in the land.’ Thieves and robbers in this world and there is no guarantee because you are a Christian your properties are safe, but when they took the material wealth , because you wealth is from within, you will recover and do even better.
The magic was inside [ indwelling]Isaac. That was why wherever he went he found water, that precious commodity in those days needed for cattle to increase and thus you become wealthier. This is the way of God . This is how God blesses you, not with money, but an all-round blessing. Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it. Part of this blessing is contentment. 1 Timothy 6:8 And having food and raiment let us be therewith content.
Hebrews 13:5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
Money can be acquired by hook crook and legitimate means, therefore is no yardstick or barometer to know Gods blessings in your life.
Money was invented by man, a sinful creature, and not from heaven. Moreover, it is physical for that which is physical can not be in heaven. God pours down his blessing from the widows of heaven, but not physical cash. your blessings may open doors for the physical cash to flow in.
