Why Your Financial Struggles Have a Spiritual Root


This is the second of the series on steps to achieving financial freedom. You should repeat these prayers in your devotional times until you experience full financial freedom (1 Chron. 23:30).

Forgiven, Cleansed, Renewed

Lay your hands on your heart, seeing Christ's hands overlaying yours.

Christ's blood has made me clean (1 John 1:7). I stand, clothed in Christ's righteousness, a righteousness received by faith in the finished work of Christ at Calvary (Gal. 3:27, Rom. 1:7). Thank You, Lord!

Lord, I embrace what You have spoken, that money is a blessing and a fruit of following Your voice (Deut. 28:1-14. I put on the mantle of abundance in Jesus' name. I receive God's anointing, for it is He who has given me the power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore to our fathers (Deut. 8:18).

Lay your hands on your heart, seeing Christ's hands overlaying yours.

I break off all ungodly thought patterns (mental strongholds) of fear and lack and worry which say I will never have enough. These are lies from the enemy. God has promised me more than enough (Ex. 36:7; Luke 15:17). My mind is filled with the vision that I live in my promised land, a land God has promised to me. It is a land flowing with milk and honey. It is a land of freedom and rest (Heb. 4). I receive it. Thank You, Lord!

I speak to my cellular memory, my RNA and my DNA. Emotions of fear, lack and poverty, be cleansed and erased from my cellular memories. Images, thoughts, attitudes and ideas that I will never have enough, be swept out in Jesus' name. (Breathe out deeply a couple of times; see Jesus sweeping your cells clean; feel the release.) Thank You, Jesus.

Healing Negative Pictures of Past Financial Mishaps

Holy Spirit, what negative picture from my past concerning money do You need to heal? Pause and look. What picture did He bring to mind? You may want to jot it down in your journal. Then ask ...

Lord, show me where You are in this scene, and what You are saying to me. (Look and listen —tuning to flowing thoughts and flowing pictures as these are God's visions and God's words which bring healing to this scene (John 7:37-39). Record what He reveals so you have a memorial of this event (Rev. 1:9-11). Forgive everyone involved (others, yourself, God, circumstances, governments). I choose to honor and release them and bless them in Jesus' name. Embrace what God is speaking and doing. Ask God to cleanse your cells from the trauma of this event. Feel Him do that. Experience the release!

Day by day, repeat the above, asking for additional scenes until all negative financial scenes have been dealt with. Ask, "Lord, are there negative events in my family line concerning money which You want to heal?" As you tune to flowing thoughts and pictures, God will grant words of knowledge of such events and as you invite Him to reveal Himself in these scenes, you will see Him ministering grace to your ancestors. You will see their excitement as a result of this prayer, and as you look, you will even see this new freedom flowing down through your family line, ultimately touching you and your descendants. Remember, in the spirit world, there is no time so God can heal past, present and future.

This is a good time to do a prophetic act of joyful, excited release. The more events that Jesus releases you and your generational line from, the freer you are to experience God's blessings.
