How To Fight Poverty with Bible Verses

Regardless of how many times you have unsuccessfully tried to break free from the bondage of poverty, you must never despair and accept to die in paucity.

You have to decide to believe that God would like you to prosper since His Word says Blessed be God who has pleasure in the prosperity of his servant. (Psalm 35:27)

Then, since Jesus came so that we can Have life and have it to the full, (John 10:10) you have to combine spiritual, mental, verbal, and physical interventions to form your own holistic deliverance ministry to fight poverty and live in abundance.

Pray

The first spiritual intervention is to pray and ask God to help you become financially free. 

Understand that even if other humans beings do not have time to listen to what you have to say because of your financial status, God will listen to you For the Lord hears the poor (Psalm 69:33) and He will deliver the needy when he cries, the poor, and the person who has no helper. (Psalm 72:12)

In addition, not only does the Lord listen to the poor, but He also Raises the poor out of the dust, and lifts the needy out of the ash heap so that He may seat him with princes. (Psalm 113:7-8)

We can see a practical example of this when King David sent for Mephibosheth who was the crippled son of Jonathan and told him, “You shall eat at my table” (2 Samuel 9:7) after making wealthy by declaring that “I will restore to you Mephibosheth all the land that belonged to King Saul your grandfather. ” (2 Samuel 9:7)

Therefore, even if you have been living in seemingly hopeless circumstances and even if you consider yourself utterly useless like Mephibosheth who asked King David, “What is your servant, that you should show kindness to such a dead dog as I?” (2 Samuel 9:8) understand that God can cause you to be raised like from the oblivion of poverty to the prominence of being seated with princes.

Understand also that God can change your financial situation even if you are crippled physically, educationally or materially like He did for Mephibosheth who could not help himself acquire his grandfather’s real estate since he was lame. 

So, pray because God can translate paupers from poverty to prosperity. Pray and ask Him for the financial freedom that you yearn because He reassures us that For the oppression of the poor, for the sighing of the needy, now I will arise," says the Lord. "I will set him in the safety for which he yearns". (Psalm 12:5) 

As you pray, use Scriptures since the Word of God is the Sword of the Spirit that God has given us to fight with. (Ephesians 6:17) Scriptures that you can use as personal poverty deliverance prayers include:
1. Heavenly Father I ask You in the name of Jesus to remember me with the favor You have toward Your people and to visit me with Your salvation so that I may see the benefit of Your chosen ones, rejoice in the gladness of Your nation and glory with Your inheritance. (Adapted Psalm 106:4-5)

2. Heavenly Father I ask You in the name of Jesus to bless my hard work and help me prosper since it is written that The soul of the diligent shall be made rich. (Proverbs 19:4)

Believe

As you pray, believe that God will help you since having faith in God and in His Word is how you hold up your shield of faith which is one of our spiritual weapons and the weapon that is able to quench all the fiery darts of the enemy. (Ephesians 6:16)

Get Saved

Put on the helmet of salvation since it is another part of the armor of God that we need to put on to fight our spiritual battles. (Ephesians 6:14-17)

All you need to do to put on this helmet of salvation is to say with your mouth that “Jesus is Lord” and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead when He died for our sins on the cross and you will be saved. (Romans 10:9) 


***

Meditate

The next intervention you need to take is to remove all negative thoughts from your mind so that you can be renewed in the spirit of your mind. 

To do this, set specific Christian meditation sessions during the day when you can meditate on prosperity scriptures like:
1. I am prospering in all things and I am good health just as my soul prospers. (Adapted 3 John 1:2)

2. God brings out those who are bound in poverty into prosperity. (Adapted Psalm 68:6)

3. No good thing will He withhold from those who walk uprightly. (Psalm 84:11)

4. He sets the poor on high, far from affliction, and makes their families like a flock. (Psalm 107:41)

5. The Lord is my shepherd and I shall not lack. He makes me to lie down in green pastures. He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul … He prepares a table before me in the presence of my enemies. He anoints my head with oil and my cup runs over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life. (Adapted Psalm 23) 


***

Read the Bible

Ensure that you read at least one chapter of the Bible every day because the Gospel is another of the weapons of our warfare. 

Reading the Bible will also teach you other prosperity scriptures to meditate on.
In addition to reading the Bible, you should also read other material to increase your financial knowledge since the Bible says My people perish because of lack of knowledge. (Hosea 4:6)

Therefore schedule time for reading blogs and other books on personal finance, watching shows on money matters and attending webinars on how to make money.


***

Affirm Yourself

Since the tongue has the power of life and death, (Proverbs 18:21) use the power of your mouth to change your financial situation by declaring positive affirmations.

Magnify the power of your affirmations by using Scriptures as your affirmations since the Word of God is the Sword of the Spirit (Ephesians 6:17) that we need to wield to win our spiritual battles. 

Financial affirmations from the Bible that you can confess include: 
1. My God is supplying all my needs according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (Adapted Philippians 4:19)

2. I trust in the living God who gives me richly all things to enjoy. (Adapted 1 Timothy 6:17)

3. God gives me my food in due season. He opens His hand and satisfies my desire. (Adapted Psalm 145:14-16)

4. I am beginning to prosper and I will continue prospering until I become very prosperous. (Adapted Genesis 26:13)

5. The needy shall not always be forgotten and the expectation of the poor shall not perish. (Psalm 9:18)


***

Live Right

Be righteous and truthful in all your financial and other dealings because the breastplate of righteousness and the belt of truth are the other parts of the armor of God that we need to put on to fight our spiritual battles. (Ephesians 6:14-17)


***

Tithe

God tells us to “Bring all the tithes into the storehouse so that there may be food in My house and try Me now in this," says the Lord of hosts, "If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.

And I will rebuke the devourer for your sake, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field. ” says the Lord of hosts. (Malachi 3:10-11) 

Therefore, take ten percent of your gross income to your local Church so that God can pour out His blessings on you. 

He also promises to rebuke the devourer who may come to destroy your financial investments through numerous ways like plagiarizing your work or refusing to pay you.

God also promises to ensure that your vine will bear fruit for you in the field regardless of whether your field is a blog or an offline business.


***

Work

Jesus taught about the noble man who gave his servants talents before he went on a journey and told them to “Do business”.

Upon his return, he asked them to account for their talents and he rewarded the first servant who had made a tenfold profit from his one talent with ten cities. (Luke 19:12-24) 

Therefore, identify your talents and use them to “Do business”.

You can for example start a blog and write about some aspect of your life even anonymously.

You can then "Do Business" with your blog by:
1. Earning money from advertisements placed on your blog 

2. Making money from selling other people’s books that you review on your blog 

3. Making money by writing articles for other people’s blogs 

4. Offering editing services 

5. Charging for your services as a Blogging Consultant to those who want to learn how to make money from their blogs. 


***

Diversify your Income

Learn from the Proverbs 31 woman and develop multiple income streams because we can see that she made money as a:
1. Real estate investor for She buys a field (Proverbs 31:16)

2. Farmer for She plants a vineyard (Proverbs 31:16) 

3. Manufacturer for She makes linen garments and sells them (Proverbs 31:26) 

4. Wholesaler for she Supplies merchants with sashes (Proverbs 31:24)

Therefore in addition to writing on your own blog you should also diversify your sources of income.
You can do this by selling handmade cards with your original quotes or selling photos you have taken or anything else you have created.
