When we squeeze a tube of toothpaste, we know what is going to come out. The label says toothpaste and we get what we expect. When people are squeezed, we never know what is going to come out. God’s word can be in our head, but it needs to be in our heart. The mouth speaks what the heart is full of. (Luke 6:45)
What Are We Full Of?
The world is full of bad news and negativity, and it is only going to get worse. When we focus on that, we get into fear. It’s happening to the WORLD; It’s not happening to the WORD. We pray for THEM, but we live in HIM.
Increase Is Coming
A good person leaves an inheritance for their children’s children, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous. (Proverbs 13:22) We’re going to have an increase when the world is in trouble. We are called to feed the nations and to help the poor.
We are called to be a blessing for others. If we are to be blessed, we need to stop blocking the blessing and start aligning with God. The enemy is saying we are not going to make it, the job we’ve had forever is lost, the stock is going to fall, our kids will be messed up forever. NO! Use thought replacement and focus on the good and speak thankfulness!
I don’t know your situation, but I know God is no respecter of persons (Acts 10:34) and he rewards those who diligently seek him (Hebrews 11:6). Change how you choose to view your situation. Listen to the word, let it get into your heart and it will come out of your mouth (Luke 6:45). As you do this, when the world squeezes you, the expected result will always be God’s word.
