The biblical principles of economics are now firmly rooted in your mind and (hopefully) in your actions. The Lord’s method of seed planting and sowing shatters much of the world’s thinking. The world teaches:
- 1.“Get all you can (get every cent you can).”
- 2.“Can all you get (save every penny you get).”
- 3.“Sit on the can (never spend any of your savings).”
In other words: “Get all you can, and hold it.” But God has a different way: There is (he) that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is (he) that withholdeth more than is meet (fitting), but it tendeth to poverty. The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself. Proverbs 11:24, 25
You have planted your seeds with a cheerful attitude and a good heart in order to glorify God. Now you can expect an abundant harvest. Because you have been generous in your seed planting, God guarantees that you will be prospered, made “fat” (with goods), watered, and blessed. That’s His promise to you.
When the devil starts to feed you his lies of fear and pending shortage, remember to “cast down” these evil “imaginations.” And once again, stand on the promises of God. You have seen them repeated again and again on the pages of this book, because God says repetition is good for us, and He has created our minds to learn things precept upon precept, line upon line.
Remember: you live in a constant barrage of the devil’s false precepts every day of your life. While you might not clearly see them as lies, their total overall effect is strong. They make a strong impression on your subconscious mind. So in this book, I have tried to give equal time to God’s truths. Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. Galatians 6:7
I have sown biblical seeds of prosperity into your mind, and now that you are planting your financial crop, you will, upon the authority of God’s Word, soon be reaping an ever-increasing harvest so you can have everything you need, and plenty left over to effectively finance His end-time harvest: God is able to make it up to you by giving you everything you need and more, so that there will not only be enough for your own needs, but plenty left over to give joyfully to others. 2 Corinthians 9:8 TLB
