Kingdom Financiers 2

Thank you for your comments and encouragement to follow up on this subject.

Paradigm – The word has come to refer very often now to a thought pattern in any scientific discipline. Wikipedia

Our paradigms are shaped by what we are taught, practiced and experienced. Proverbs 23:7 For as a man thinks within himself, so he is. As such growing up in a world where man is the focal point, we have a worldly paradigm that will not fit through the eye of the needle to enter into the Kingdom of God. Matthew 19:24

Have you been taught something and can see that it works, but when you try to change the you way to do it, you can’t change. It’s because of your paradigm. I had this happen in a sales job where my manager kept telling me I had to change my paradigm which I could not do no matter how hard I tried.

To change our mindset from our focal point, from man (us) being in control, to being completely reliant up on God – a loving Heavenly Father, can’t be done by ourselves but only with complete dependance on the Holy Spirit continually asking Him to help us and spending time in God’s word to renew our mind. Romans chapters 8 and 12. Faith – Believing that God is and He is a rewarder of those who seek Him (Hebrews 11:6) is a key that unlocks heavens resorces.

The first and cucial area of a change of paradigm is who we think we are and what we can do. When we begin to see ourselves as our Father sees us, as a child of God, born of His Spirit and that we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us, we will then be able to tackle some of the other worldly paradigms.

Men are wired to be providers so consequently will set their job as being the most important area to devote most of their time and attention to, and so become slaves to this world’s system. Little time for God or wife or family. To prosper, I think of Deuteronomy 28, Psalm 1 and Proverbs 3. The focus is on the Lord. To hear His voice and do what He says to do as we spend time in His word or in being still in His presence.  Jesus told us to seek first His Kingdom and His Righteousness and all these things would be added unto us. I have found that I can accomplish more in five minutes by doing what I hear from the Lord, than I can do in many years trying to accomplish something on my own.

Kingdom finaciers are part of those children of God that all creation has been eagerly awaiting. That is, for God’s sons and daughters (princes and princesses), to be revealed. Romans 8:19 Knowing you are a child of God, being in intimate relationship with the ultimate Creator will change your paradigm and allow you to reach your highest creative potential.

You are in the world but not of it and God has chosen to partner with us to bring heaven to earth and turn it upside down as the early church did.
