8 - Recipe for Coming Out of Poverty

Isaiah 61 :
1 "The Spirit of the Lord GOD is upon Me,
Because the LORD has anointed Me
To preach good tidings to the poor ....
NKJV

To lift myself out of poverty
And become the person God created me to be
I need to change my thinking:

The Lord requires that I do justly, love mercy,
And walk humbly with Him
The Lord requires
That I use my words to bless others
Not to hurt, blight or destroy them.

The Lord requires
That I pay my own way in life
Through honest work,
not expecting handouts,
Or cutting corners
Or taking what belongs to others.

Now what you need to know today is the following truth about You and God:

GOD THOUGHT ENOUGH OF YOU
TO SPILL HIS SON'S BLOOD TO RESCUE YOU:
"You were redeemed from the empty way of life...
with the precious blood of Christ,
a lamb without blemish or defect."
(1 Peter 1:18b, 19)

11 But Christ came as a chief priest of the good things that are now here. Christ went through a better, more perfect tent that was not made by human hands and that is not part of this created world.
12 He used his own blood, not the blood of goats and bulls, for the sacrifice. He went into the most holy place and offered this sacrifice once and for all to free us forever.
13 The blood of goats and bulls and the ashes of cows sprinkled on unclean people made their bodies holy and clean.
14 The blood of Christ, who had no defect, does even more. Through the eternal Spirit he offered himself to God and cleansed our consciences from the useless things we had done. Now we can serve the living God.
Hebrews 9:11-14 (GW)

Prayer:
Father, today I accept that You love me, and I breathe in Your love right now.
As I receive Your love into my inner person, I refuse every attitude of rejection I have harboured, that has brought the wrong people into my life, and kept the right people away from me.
Today I call into my life, every good and perfect gift You have always had in mind to give me,
in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ,
Amen.
