THE LINK BETWEEN FINANCIAL STEWARDSHIP AND HEALING
He that is faithful in that which is least is faithful also in much: and he that is unjust in the least is unjust also in much. If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches? (Luke 16:10-11 KJV)
In this blog we are going to look at something that is not commonly linked with healing or the ability to flow in healing anointing, however if you are able to appreciate and understand this it will help in your every day christian walk not only healing.
In the Luke Chapter 16:1-13, Christ narrated a parable that is often called the Unjust Steward, essentially it has to do with financial stewardship . The conclusion in verses 10-13 Christ linked financial stewardship with the ability to flow in the things of God. In fact He said the anointing to operate in financial stewardship is the least in the kingdom. Let me put it this way I have never seen a mature Christian that does not have a reliable revelation of financial stewardship . In fact it is nigh impossible to grow spiritually if you have not grasped this. Financial stewardship according to Christ is the litmus test, for qualification for the 'true riches' (Luke 16:11). Until you circumcise your heart of greed you will struggle spiritually. There are a few reasons for this, the first is that believe it or not like money the anointing for victorious christian living is meant to flow through you same as money should (2Corinthians 9:8, Deuteronomy 8:18, Genesis 12:2). You see both money and anointing or unction of the Holy Spirit are currency that is meant to flow. They don't belong to you, you are only a custodian or steward. If you fail with the physical one , you cannot handle the spiritual.
Secondly, Matthew 6:24, Luke 16:13 both say God and money are both deities and they are both absolute masters. Let me put it this way, your strength or the extent of what you can achieve is dictated by which one you choose. Money have influence in the physical, God controls the spiritual that also controls the physical (2Corinthians 4:18). The rich young ruler in Mark 10, wanted influence in the spiritual but could not renounce his god...money. You cannot serve two masters, it is impossible!!
When you know that Christ is your Lord, (that is master), you will realise that you have influence in spiritual things including healing. Unfortunately very few Christians connect the dots between financial stewardship and spiritual maturity. As money looses its grip over your heart you will become more confident in spiritual things, you will decree a thing and it will be established on to you.
Lastly, it's important that you know that there is nothing wrong with money as long as it is serving you. Let God have you and you have money, that is the divine order. God does not mind you having money, what He is against is money having you
YOU CAN'T SERVE TWO MASTERS, IT'S EITHER GOD OR MONEY.
IF HE CAN GET IT THROUGH YOU, HE WILL GIVE IT TO YOU
