Many time we rack our brains trying to figure out what is the issue with our finances.  We pray for financial freedom, anything to get ourselves out of this rut.  We pray, pray and pray but sometime we need to stop and listen.  What is GOD showing you or trying to reveal to you.   Listed below are some areas or things that may be keeping you poor and stuck.

1. How is your speech when it comes to your condition or situation?

Are your words full of empowerment or are they full of excuses.  If your words give more power to the unfortunate or negative conditions/situation how do you expect to overcome or succeed?  To elevate yourself above the situation you must speak and see yourself problem solving not complaining.

Proverbs 17:28 Even fools are thought wise if they keep silent, and discerning if they hold their tongues

2. Do you think that your background/upbringing is holding you back?

Your background/upbringing may play a part in your journey of now; however, you still have the authority to make take a different path from your past.    The truth is your thoughts and habits are the things holding you back from advancing.  Maybe it is time to change those negative habits and thought patterns to get different results.

Ephesians 5:17 Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

3. Are your body, mind and soul saying the same thing?

If your body/body language, your thoughts/mind, and your soul/heart are saying different things. How can you expect to move forward from your situation? It is not enough to just confess something; you heart must believe, and your body must also agree. This is what is called alignment all three must be in the same agreement. Manifestation is not about tricking your mind body and soul; it’s about training them to become in one agreement.

James 1:8 being a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways.

4. Check your Expectation

How many times do you desire something but then you say well if it happens it happens; or do you lose sleep worrying/doubting about the situation. Anxiety can cause low expectation. That my friend is called low expectation.

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.

5. We make a belief and then the belief makes us

Through childhood many of us develop or are raised with negative belief systems and now these belief systems have become who we are today. Are you ok with who you are today, if not try changing outdated belief systems? See what new things is being presented for a change to manifest

6. Do you worry about who you are not?

Let your foundation be in GOD planted like a tree by the river

Society has taught us to be competitive! There is nothing wrong with friendly competition, but it has gone to the extremes, where we do not see ourselves as good enough. Stop measuring yourself or living your life based on someone else. This will keep you in a cycle of always changing to be like someone else, basically you will be living someone else’s dream and neglecting your own. You are unique and therefore it makes your goals and dreams unique.

Psalm 139:16 You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed.

7. How do you speak about yourself?

This is especially useful for those who are not happy with their current situation. Talk about yourself in the things that you are about to accomplish. This light a fire in completing those achievements, it helps motivate and boost self-confidence. You never want to talk about yourself in the context of little achievements this minimizes who you are. Remember goals help develop you.

Job 8:7 And though your beginning was small, your latter days will be very great.

8. Stop waiting to be motived. Motivations comes when you act.

A lot of time we complain about not being motivated to act. However, it is when we take a step no matter how small to take some form of action, anything that moves us closer to our goal, is when the motivation kicks in. Stop talking about it be about it.

Proverbs 12:24 Diligent hands will rule, but laziness ends in forced labor.

9. Obtaining Success

Success comes not when you do what you want but when you do what you must do. Look at the things you do not like to do as part of your success journey.

Hebrews 10:36 For you have need of endurance, so that when you have done the will of God, you may receive what was promised.

10. You and your Goals

Wear the Word of GOD

Did you know to help achieve goals, you and your goals must become one. Realize, goals shape you and you shape your goals.  Goals help you to mature and develop.

Amos 3:3 Can two walk together, unless they are agreed?

11. Our speech moves you

What comes out of the mouth will cause you to move forward or backwards. Monitor what you are speaking. Words cause you to act. Begin to talk about goals and desire these things help you move forward.

Psalm 141:3 Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!
