15 of 31 Reasons People Do Not Receive Their Financial Harvest

=========    ~  Proverbs 11:14  ~  "Where no counsel is, the people fall:  but in the multitude of counselors there is Safety."


     What u keep hearing u eventually believe.  U must treasure every moment u have access 2 a qualified Mentor.
     What u do not respect will move away from u.
     It may be a miracle, a dog, or money.  But there are currents in life just like there are in air and water.  These currents move u toward your dreams or away from them;  toward success or failure;  toward prosperity or poverty.
     What u respect will move toward u.  It may be people, or money. 
     When God wants 2 bless u, He  puts a person in your life.
     Moses was assigned 2b the Deliverer who led the Israelites out of their bondage in Egypt.  Those who respected his leadership found their bondage broken, and headed toward Canaan, the land of promise.
     Elijah was a Deliverer.  God took him away from the privacy of the brook, and sent him 2 the home of a starving widow.  The town was Zarephath.  Her son was on meal from death.  But, God sent her a man who was not intimidated by her poverty.  This prophet carried the mantle 2 unlock her faith 4 a supernatural financial harvest.
  >  If u are spiritually lost, u must begin 2 look 4 the man of God who has focused his life 2 bring the salvation message 2 the unbeliever.
     >  If u are sick, u must look 4 and respect the man of God who carries the mantle and anointing 4 divine healing and health.
     >  If u are facing financial problems and bankruptcy, start looking 4 the man or woman of God who carries the mantle of Financial Breakthrough.

     U C, what u respect  will move toward u.  When u respect and celebrate the financial mantle of those God sends into your life, prosperity will explode like Niagara Falls across your life.  No one fails alone.
    If u fail or experience financial devastation, it could well be bcoz u chose 2 ignore a man of God assigned 2 help u unlock the treasures and unleash your financial faith.
     Your Mentors must be recognized and pursued.
     Jesus reached out 2 help and was ignored.  U can almost feel the tears flowing down His cheeks as He cried, "O Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them which are sent unto thee, how often would I have gathered thy children together, even as a hen gathereth her chickens under her wings, and ye would not!  Behold, your house is left unto u desolate" (Matthew 23:37-38).
     Your Mentors can upgrade your financial decisions.  If u can make the decisions that create your poverty, then u can make decision that can create your prosperity.   If u can do something that brings decrease, u can learn 2 do that things that create increase.

     >  U must discern the Financial Mentors closest 2 u.
     > U must learn 2 celebrate the Financial Deliverers God has made accessible 2 .
     Reaching is a requirement.
     Reaching out 4 financial wisdom and assistance is not a sign of weakness.  Only a fool ignores a life jacket when he is drowning.  Those who overcome financial devastation never do it alone.  They conquer their pride.  They reject the trap of isolation.  They know the inevitable reward of reaching.  They pursue.  They ask.

     U must turn 2 God first.  Become thankful 4 what He has already given 2 u in your life.
     First, be thankful 4 His previous provision and supernatural supply.
     Express gratitude 4 those who have assisted u in achieving your dream, given u job opportunities, and encouraged u.
     Your Heavenly Father cares about your financial difficulties today.  U really do matter 2 Him.  Jesus said it clearly,  "Your Heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things." (Matthew 6:32).
      He is expecting your pursuit of Him.  In the Secret Place of prayer.  In the church services that u attend.  In your diligent research of Scripture.  "When thou art in tribulation, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn 2 the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient  unto His Voice; (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) He will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor 4get the covenant of they fathers which He sware unto them" (Deuteronomy 4:30-31).
     Nobody else can do it 4 u.  Nobody else feels your pain.  Nobody else is staring at the stack of bills u are facing every night.
     Pursue worthy and proven counsel.  Somebody knows something u need 2 know.  Someone knows something that can help u survive and even succeed in the middle of the most painful chapter of your life.  Ignorance is 2 costly.  It is deadly.
     Only fools risk the consequences of ignorance.  Your pastor, or boss, or someone u love may have a recommendation of a certified financial planner or others in your area.  Whatever u do today, take the time 2 listen 2 Godly advice.  True champions do.  As the ancient writings teach, "Where no counsel is, the people fall: but in the multitude of counselors there is safety." (Proverbs 11:14). 
     God expects u 2 cry out 4 help in times of trouble"This poor man cried, and the LORD heard him, and saved him out of all his troubles" (Psalms 34:6). 
     Your humility and desperation will attract God.  Especially your faith.  U must trust God 2 stop the financial attack against u.  U serve a very capable and caring God.  he can turn the hearts of kings in favor toward u.
     U are on His mind this very moment.  Your tears, your pain, and your fears affect Him and influence His responses 2 u.  He is getting ready 2 move in your behalf.  Trust Him.  Regardless of the storms around u, remember the great promise, "He maketh wars 2 cease..." (Psalms 46:9).
     Recognize messengers who carry the message of financial solutions.  They may be packaged like a John the Baptist in a loin cloth of camel's hair, or the silk robes like King Solomon.  Do not permit the packaging 2 distract u from the message.  They may appear arrogant, cocky and self-confident.  Or, they may seem humble, timid and even reluctant 2 share their financial knowledge.  It is your responsibility 2 discern the messengers God sends into your life.  Drop your pail in their well.
     Your response 2 a man of God is carefully documented by God.  When God talks 2 u, it is often thru the spiritual leaders in your life.  Do not ignore them.  Remember-- "He that receiveth a prophet in the name of a prophet shall receive a prophet's reward; and he that receiveth a righteous man in the name of a righteous man shall receive a righteous man's reward" (Matthew 10:41).
     Recognize extraordinary and uncommon Mentors of Faith.  U C, your faith determines the flow of miracles toward u.  "But w/o faith, it is impossible 2 please Him" (Hebrews 11:6b).   "He that cometh unto God must believe that He is a rewarder of them that diligently seek Him" (Hebrews 11:6a). 
     Moses mentored Joshua.
     Paul mentored Timothy.
     Elijah mentored Elisha.
     Naomi mentored Ruth.
     Mordecai mentored Esther.
     Uncommon champions have uncommon mentors.  Observe carefully the lives of those who have succeeded around u.  Their secrets will begin 2 surface.  Their reason 4 unusual success will become quite clear.  Study the biographies of financial champions.  Extraordinary people have tapped into the fountain of their faith.  As u read their journey from the pit 2 the palace, u will be encouraged and strengthened.  "Where4 seeing we also are compassed about w/so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run w/patience the race that is set b4 us" (Hebrews 12:1).  
     Constantly eat faith foodWhat u read will affect what u believe.  What u read influences the conversations u enter.  When u feed the Word of God into your spirit man, your faith (confidence in God) comes alive and becomes a living force within u.
     Set aside a specific time every day 2 read 3 chapters in the Bible.  Nurture and grow the explosive SEEDS of Faith within u. Invest in yourself!  Acorns can become oak trees.  "So then Faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God" (Romans 10:17). 
     Choose a proven mentor.  Those u admire will eternally affect your Future.  Choose financial mentors who increase your faith in the true Source, God.  Learn from their scars as well as their sermons.  "And we beseech u, brethren, 2 know them which labour among u, and are over u in the Lord, and admonish u;  And 2 esteem them very highly in love 4 their work's sake" (I Thessalonians 5:12-13).   
     Financial Mentors are different than Financial Deliverers.  Mentors impart expertise.  Deliverers create experiences.  U need both.
     Your mentor takes u on a continuous journey from where u are 2 the place u can be.  This involves a collection of Instructions, a series of crises and constant review of your financial situation.
     A Financial deliverer carries a mantle and an anointing that breaks the spirit of poverty over your life and unlocks a financial faith never experienced b4.

     > Somebody gave u Instructions that created your Present circumstances.
     > Somebody must give u different Instructions 2 create the circumstances that u desire.  "Poverty and shame comes 2 him that refuseth Instruction" (Proverbs 18:13).
     Many rebel against any correction or advice given 2 them.  This is the reason they never taste the incredible harvest God wants them 2 have. 
     Several years ago, I had a close friend I loved and admired very much.  Something agitated him and he quit attending a special weekly Bible study that I held.  His house was just minutes away.  A few months later, he began 2 experience tremendous financial losses.  One day, I met his wife in a store.
     "You have got 2 pray 4 my husband.  He is almost bankrupt."  Her face looked so pulled and stressed.  "Well, he ought 2b in bad shape,"  I said half jesting but really serious.  "He as refused 2 drive 10 minutes 2 sit under a financial mantle of a financial deliverer where God is pouring out financial blessing.  He has ignored and disregarded the access he has had 2 this anointing."
     Sometimes that which becomes familiar becomes hidden  us.  Someone I love was very concerned about a close relative.  "Unless there is a miracle, they are going 2 go bankrupt."  "You know,"  I replied, "every Thursday night I teach from the Word of God on the Laws of Financial Supply.  They could sit under this mantle within minutes if they would make the drive.  They have refused 2 sit under this anointing."  Their financial crises was not a mystery 2 me at all.
     What u ignore will move away from u.  
     I have relatives who can hardly earn their own living .  They  constantly borrow from other relatives.  Some would call them parasites, bcoz they cannot earn their own way.  yet, they refuse 2 sit for 3 days in a conference that would connect them 2 the golden flow of supply and the uncommon walk of faith.
     No, it is not a shock and surprise 2 me that many people never experience harvest.  Some will sit an hour in a car on the freeway during a traffic jam every single day of their life, but become angry if their pastor discusses financial harvest during the offering 4 more than 15 minutes.
     Think about this.  Every week contains 168 hours, or 672 compartments of 15 minutes.  If u only sit and receive faith teaching on a capsule of 15 minutes out of the 672, is it any wonder why your faith is not alive and vibrant?
     "A wise man will hear, and will increase learning, and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels" (Proverbs 1:5).
     U must start moving toward extraordinary people.  Make a habit of pursuing greatness.  Pay any price.  Purchase any book or tape series that contains the path 2 the uncommon supply.
     Elisha received a double portion of God's power bcoz he was willing 2 pay the cost 2 stay in the presence of Elijah, the great prophet.  Joshua observed Moses.  Ruth reached 4 Boaz.
     You will never possess what u are unwilling 2 pursue.   You  really have no right 4 anything u have reached toward.  "He that walketh w/wise men shall be wise, but a companion of fools shall be destroyed" (Proverbs 13:20).
     I was in South Carolina giving my testimony about the SEED of $58, the Covenant of Blessing.  This is what I shared;  I was in Washington, DC, sitting on the platform.  The pastor was receiving the tithe and offerings from his people.  Suddenly, the Holy Spirit spoke 2 me and impressed me 2 plant a SEED of $58 2 represent each of the 58 Kinds of Blessing in the Bible.  It sounded so crazy 2 me, but I knew the Voice of the Holy Spirit.  So,  I pulled out my checkbook and wrote a check for $58.  Then, I felt impressed 2 plant one 4 my son who was 12 at the time.  My divorce had been bitter.  It was difficult 2 get any time of visitation, and so forth.
     Within a few weeks after my SEED, his mother decided he could come spend the rest of his life w/me!  The miracle flow started.  After I shared this in South Carolina.  It was interesting the paths that 2 different people in that service took.
     One man called the pastor very upset.  He insisted that I was a fraud, trying 2 con people out of $58.  Here was a man who could not discern a financial anointing, a financial deliverer God had sent into his life 2 unlock his faith.  Perhaps, he had some terrible experiences or heard great criticism of ministers in his youthful days.  Chances are that his backslidden state from God made him angry at any discussion of money.  At any rate, he reacted, and refused 2 participate in the SEED of $58.
     Across the building sat another precious lady, a minister of the gospel.  Her heart was stirred.  She discerned the atmosphere of heaven in the service.  She pulled out her checkbook and sowed a special SEED of $58.  (On the left-hand side of the check, she wrote "Covenant of Blessing.")  A few months later, an old man she had been caring 4 died.  Thinking he was broke, she had been purchasing his medicine 4 him.  She thought he died impoverished.  However, after his death, he left her a church paid for, 2 Homes and 27 acres of ground completely paid for!  Within 2 years, the geological report came back they had discovered gold on the 27 acres of ground!
     Same service.  Two people.  One sneered and refused 2 recognize the anointing of God.
     The second tasted the supernatural supply.
     One man told me after a service one night, "I do not really understand about this SEED of $58."  "It is quite simple.  The SEED that leaves your hand never really leaves your life--it simply leaves your hand and goes into your own FUTURE where it multiplies."
     Those who doubt are forced 2 live w/the consequences of their unbelief.   Those who believe can expect 2 face the rewards of their believing.
     Doubt is a tragic and unfortunate cancer in the body of Christ.  Oh, precious friend, do not permit it 2 destroy your life.
     Some are intimidated by the self-confidence of a financial deliverer.  To them, financial blessing is a difficult, hard and arduous journey up the long mountain of life.  It seems impossible 2 achieve.  When they C the brash and light approach, they are turned off.
     Some are thinking about the limitations of their salary instead of hearing about the potential of their faith.
     Others simply feel that the risk of the faith life is 2 great.  They hold on  every cent.  They hoard.  They feel personally responsible 4 every dollar that comes into their life and cannot grasp the greatness of a Provider, GOD, who cares deeply 4 them.
      Thousands refuse 2 embrace the faith challenge of a financial deliverer and mentor that God sends.  They will spend the rest of their life scraping pennies, wishing their life could have a breakthrough.
