  2. i dont understand these scriptures,i know GOD cant lie but when it comes to prosperity,riches,abundance i just dont get it.I have prayed and studied the word,i have bought many books,tapes,and cds from a whole lot of minestries but i just cant explain it but my financial state goes up and down that my wife and i have prayed and tried so many things but nothing seems to help.we dont have a credit cards but nomatter what we do it seems that we get knocked down so many times that when we do get a break all it does is help us get caught up,but than we get knocked down again.i have had several several freinds that are pastors and a couple people that i know are prophets help us get answers but so far after 15 years of seeking answers still no real answers.We dont have hidden sins,i have gone to 2 major deliverances because my grand farther was a 33rd degree mason and i was heavy in to pschic powers.But no matter how prayers i read out load or how many things i buy we just dont understand why we just barely have enough to make it.christ said i came to give life and life more abuntley,but my freinds that are in full time minestry say i dont understand why this or that keeps happening to i said i am 41 years old now and it just seems that i live under a very strong oppresion spirit but how can i break free.tim

    • Margaret says:


      The Bible says that we will encounter tribulation and a day of evil. We are subject to the same natural principals and laws as unbelievers. The difference for us is that we are already victorious, and God will never let us fall. He rebukes the devourer for our sake, and all our needs will be met.

      You also have to remember that we have an enemy, who has an entire army, the sole purpose of which is to kill, steal, and destroy whatever it is that God has given us.

      Then you also have to remember that God is just, and, although are sins are forgiven, we still are bound to reap the seeds of any mistakes we made in the past.

      THEN, you gotta remember that we are constantly building our faith. God allows us to go through certain things to help build our faith, perfect us, and develop our character.

      Don’t grow weary in well doing. It sounds like you’ve always gotten by, so obviously God has met your needs. Now you just need to build your faith to have the abundant life you seek.

      Believe it, confess it, sow towards it, and don’t give up or be dismayed no matter what circumstance you come up against.
