Let's look at Deuteronomy chapter 28:1:
And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God, to observe and to do all His commandments which I command thee this day, that the Lord thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy God.
I want you to pay very close attention to these blessings:
Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field. Blessed shall be the fruit of thy body, and the fruit of thy ground, and the fruit of thy cattle, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep. Blessed shall be thy basket and thy store. Blessed shalt thou be when thou comest in, and blessed shalt thou be when thou goest out. The Lord shall cause thine enemies that rise up against thee to be smitten before thy face; they shall come out against thee one way, and flee before thee seven ways.
I want you to notice what God has said here. God said that He would bless Abraham and his seed if they were obedient to His Word.

Look closely at verse eight: The Lord shall command the blessing upon thee in thy storehouses, and in all that thou settest thine hand unto; and he shall bless thee in the land which the Lord thy God giveth thee.

The Lord said this to me: "Son, I want to command My blessing upon My people. The problem with most of My people right now is that they are listening to everybody else in the world talk to them about their financial situations and they won't let Me talk to them. They listen to the news media and they are being told that there is inflation and that interest is going up. They listen to the world and let the world command curses on their finances." God said to me, "I would like to have the opportunity to say what I think."

I don't know about you, but I want God talking to my finances and not the world. I won't allow the evening news to dictate what is going to happen to me financially. I am in this world, but I am not of it.

Covenant people should live better than the world lives. We do not have to be depressed, oppressed, or suppressed. God has told us that He wants us to be the head and not the tail, above and not beneath. Our affairs do not have to be ordered about by this world.

If you believe what the devil says about your finances and if you believe what the news media and carnally minded people say, then those signs will follow your finances. The wisdom of the world tells us there is inflation and recession, and that you cannot overcome it. If you are convinced of this, you will never have enough. Signs will follow what you believe.

Let God's Word Be Final Authority
The Lord said to me, "I want My people to quit listening to what the world's wisdom has to say about their finances and start listening to what I've got to say about it. I am going to command a blessing upon them in order to deliver them out of bondage."

I began reading every scripture in God's Word where He commanded something to happen. In Genesis chapter one, the Spirit of God was moving across the face of the waters and God said, Let there be light. There was light. You'll find that every time God created something in the book of Genesis, it is always prefaced with "and God said."

God said, and it was so. God told me, "I want to command a blessing upon you. All I would have to do to change your entire financial situation is say 'Prosperity, Come! Lack, Go!' That is all it would take."

God calls those things that be not as though they are (Rom. 4:17). The word "calleth" means to summons. All God has to do to change any situation is to say the Word. There is nothing more powerful than God's Word.

It is superior to everything that is made, since all things were made by Him (Col 1:16). God told me, "I want to command My blessing upon My people. When I release My words upon their finances, it carries as much power as when I said, 'Light, Be!'"

Did you know that God has been talking about our finances for a long time? He has already said that He desires that we prosper and be in health even as our soul prospers (3 John 2). He has already said that He delights in the prosperity of His servants (Ps. 35:27).

Where we've missed it is that we've listened to the world too long. Now it's time that we stop listening to the world, stop listening to the news media, and stop listening to anything that is contrary to God's Word.

God has said that He will command a blessing upon us. Psalms 148:5-6 says, For he commanded, and they were created. he hath made a decree which shall not pass. When God delivers a decree, it shall not pass. In other words, it cannot be negated. When God talks to your finances, Satan cannot stop it from coming to pass.

Author Biography

Jerry Savelle
Web site: Jerry Savelle Ministries International
Dr. Jerry Savelle was an average, blue-collar man who was struggling and needed God's help. While he considered himself a "nobody," when he became a believer God told him not to worry about it because He was a master at making champions out of nobodies. God has since taken Dr. Savelle from being a constant quitter to a man who knows how to stand on the Word of God until victory is experienced. Because of the life-changing combination of God's faithfulness and Dr. Savelle's "no quit" attitude, his life is totally different than it was thirty-eight years ago.
