God’s Economy Vs World’s Economy

It seems that everywhere you look the economists are telling us that the world is headed for deep financial chaos. It’s not a matter of “if” but “when” this bleak prognosis is going to come to pass. Rising interest rates, raging fuel prices, increased inflation, oil costs being lifted are going to cause insurmountable problems economically.

Top financial advisers everywhere are telling us that this is not a good time to be in debt. This is the world’s economy functioning like a stranglehold on society.

The result is fear, anxiety and depression for millions of people trying to make ends meet. Man’s governance of wealth is dreadfully unfair with unequal distribution of wealth worldwide. This is the world’s system and it’s cursed.

That’s the bad news….and now the GOOD NEWS!

There is another economy which exists outside of the world’s economy. An economy which is far more superior and is not intimidated by the world’s system in any way. It’s God’s Economy, which is governed by God’s Word and the government of heaven.

The key to escaping the consequences of the spiralling global financial chaos is simply this: Are you in Covenant with God?

Deuteronomy 8:18
And you shall remember the Lord your God for it is He who gives you the power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant.

There are many important keys contained in this scripture.
We should REMEMBER the Lord.
It is He who gives you POWER to get wealth.
We are to GET WEALTH but He will empower us to do it.
In other words, God is going to supernaturally give you the opportunities, talents, gifting, open doors and breakthroughs required to get wealth.

As a Christian, I am in covenant with the Most High God who loves me and cares for me. The Covenant with God is based on the fact that I have now died to self and I am available to God for whatever He pleases and because of this, He is bound to have to take care of me. A Covenant is a duel agreement which has mutual benefits for each party. My Covenant with God guarantees me provision. God’s Covenant with me guarantees Him service.

Within this Covenant, I have all the rights of a Kingdom person functioning with King Jesus as my supreme leader and authority. I am an ambassador for Christ. I represent the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords therefore my King and government is bound to meet all of my needs as I represent Him.

In the Kingdom of God, there is no buying & selling. This is the earthly system which requires a trade to take place. In the Kingdom of God, the economy operates on a far higher principle, the law of sowing & reaping. Attached to this principle is the dynamic power of the Blessing!

The keys which govern prosperity & abundance are simple spiritual kingdom laws which when activated work every time. For example…Through Tithing the Law of the Kingdom says that I will be blessed. That God will rebuke the devouring spirit from touching my provision and that the windows of heaven will be opened upon my life. This is found in Malachi Chapter 3.

Proverbs 10:22 “The BLESSING of the Lord makes one rich and He adds no sorrow with it.”

The Hebrew translation say’s ‘The Blessing of the Lord makes rich and hard work or toil adds nothing to it. Hard work and toil which is fatigue in body and mind in attempting to get ahead will not stand against the blessing!

Mankind is forced to have to toil for His provision because of the curse which exists as a result of the fall of Adam & Eve when they sinned. When Adam & Eve fell into sin they lost 3 things.
They lost their RELATIONSHIP with God.
They lost their ASSIGNMENT in God.
They lost their PROVISION in God.
Adam is now cast out of Eden which is the Garden of Plenty. He must now wander and survive outside of God’s favour. He must now toil to meet his needs. This is a perfect picture of man today. Lost, Alone & Toiling! This is the curse on mankind.

The Bible tells us in Galatians 3:13-14, that the curse is broken because of what Jesus Christ accomplished on the Cross, so that the Blessing may take effect.

Every person who is in Covenant with God through faith in Jesus Christ immediately receives the blessing of God. This blessing does 3 important things to the life of the Born-Again Christian.

The power to produce.
The covenant that overrides the curse.
The anointing of God by which divine favour flows.

Yes, when a person is born-again they have their sins forgiven and they receive eternal life with God but the Blessing also contains many more benefits. Hebrews 6:9 say’s that there are ‘better things’ which accompany salvation. Those better things pertain to your whole life – Spirit, Soul, Body, Relationship & Finances.

Now that the ‘Blessing’ is operating in your life you have full access to God’s Economy of Abundance.

Proverbs 8:17-21
I love those who love Me, and those who seek Me diligently will find ME.
Riches and honour are with Me, enduring riches and righteousness.
My fruit is better than gold, yes, than fine gold. And My revenue than choice silver.
I traverse the way of righteousness, In the midst of the paths of justice.
That I may cause those who love Me to inherit wealth, that I may fill their treasuries.

Let me encourage you to become a Covenant person with God today and allow the promises of God’s Word to be activated in your life.
