To every condition enjoyed or endured on earth, there is always a reason for it and so does poverty. To me, poverty is more than unemployment, and also beyond leaving below a dollar per day. Poverty in my own terms, is a disease of living below your supposed financial means. I shall be sharing with you some of causes of this deadly disease which are
NOT SERVING GOD: Poverty brings sorrow and the scriptures said, “the sorrow Of them that hasten after other gods shall be multiplied”[Psalms 16:4] but the scriptures said, “if you obey Him and serve Him, you will spend your days in prosperity”[Job 36:11]
THE FALL: After Adam and Eve sinned, the ground was cursed but Jesus came to redeem us from the curse of the law. So, accept Him as your personal saviour.
NOT TITHING: When you don’t pay your tithe, you lay a curse Of poverty upon youself.
SATAN AND HIS AGENTS: Remember the parable Of the seed when a man planted good seeds but at night, the enemies came and planted tares.(Matthew 13:24-30) but you can “take the shield Of faith in order to quench all the fiery darts Of the wicked”[Ephesians 6:16]
STEALING: “He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him”[Proverbs 28:22]
WRONG COMPANY: “…he that followeth after vain persons, shall have poverty enough”[Proverb 28:19]
PARENTAL CURSES: When a parent places a curse on his child be sure it’s going to follow that person.
LAZINESS: “He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand…”[Proverbs 10:4]
WASTEFULNESS: “A waster is brother to him that is lazy”[Proverbs 18:9]
GREED: ‘There is that scattereth and yet increaseth: and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty…”[Proverbs 11:24]
God prosper you.
