Are you living within your means or…..

His means? Most times when I share something with you, it is based on some revelation that I have received and my interpretation of it. This post is however, different in that I am sharing from a book that has blessed me and I trust will bless and challenge you also. The book is titled ‘The supernatural ways of royalty’ by Kris Vallotin.

The challenge the author poses is self explanatory in the title for this post. It is a challenge that we should take a few minutes to consider. More importantly, we need to ask ourselves whether living within God’s means is a reality within our lives and not just about faith talk.

The text I am quoting is taken directly from the title ‘Kingdom finances’ in the second chapter of the book. I believe that he shares this more adequately than I can put in words.

“Unfortunately, most of us in the church are still thinking like the older brother We have lost sight of the fact that we don’t just work on the farm –we are sons and daughters of the Owner, and our Dad has plenty! I believe this revelation will totally change the way we think and plan for our futures. Most of us are still looking at our provisions (what our bank account says) to help us determine our visions, and therefore are living within our means instead of His blessings!
For example, if we are constructing a building, we argue that we must give up some other project to cover the cost. Yet we have been called to live beyond reason and far beyond the borders of our own abilities.

“Paul said it best, “My God shall supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Phil 4:19). He said, God will supply all of our needs according to His riches). He is not supplying according to my needs but according to His glory”

He goes on to explain that we are called to live by faith, whether our bank accounts are full or not. I was very challenged by these words of wisdom and if I am really honest, I do live within my means (after all that was what I was brought up to do). I believe that whilst this is right, there is another realm that is possible to live in – the realm of God’s means.
As we move into 2012, why not ask yourself the same question I asked myself, am I living within my means or within His means. If you are living within your means, why not ask God change your perspective and give you a new mindset. Once we can ‘see it’, then we can ‘believe it’ and then we can ultimately ‘have it)

That’s exactly what I will be doing. I hope you have enjoyed this week’s short post. So until I appear again in your inbox with more insights from the scriptures, stay blessed.
