I used to think that when you were poor or in poverty it meant you were broke financially. Then God showed me the truth and true definition of both. Proverb 10:15 on the last part caught my attention"... the destruction of the poor is their poverty." What did that mean? God used the two words seperately. The definition of "poor" is empty, without. The definition of "Poverty" is The condition of lacking quality. I have to repeat that: The definition of "Poverty" is THE CONDITION of lacking QUALITY.
So I broke down the words of the sentence to get a better understanding.
1. Condition: Anything that must happen before something else can take it's place.
2. Lacking: A need for something that's missing.
3. Quality: The make-up of it's charictaristics, Nature, and degree of excellence.
Poverty: The ANYTHING which must happen; berfore something else can take it's place (of) a need for something (which is not enough) is missing the make-up of it's charataristics, Naturally and degree of excellence.
Once you go handicapped --- you never go back!
Handicap definition: Something has got to go before you can be blessed. If you hold on to the "little thing" you will not have enough of anything, and will be missing a Natural amount of perfection.
Whoh! It is the ACTION that is missing. Poverty is the action that creates the "poor" or emptiness. and it is true, because it is written again in this definition in Proverbs 11:24 "There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth: and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but: it tendeth to poverty."
So in order to get out of poverty I'm thinking we need to reverse the definition so we can be blessed! I don't want to "tend" to poverty! In any way shape or form! I want to have a Natural Degree of Excellence without missing anything! So what has got to go in order to be blessed?
Look at Prov 11:24 the part that says, "..There is that withholdeth more than is meet..." do the opposite. Don't withold more than you should. So you want proof -- Luke 6:38 "Give, and it shall be given unto you...... for the SAME measure that you mete withal it shall be measured to you again." Whatever you give, will be given to you. It doesn't matter what it is! Shoes, clothes, money, your time, effort, energy, your home, your "things". It says "give".
So I challenge you... give the very thing you want to have. Give it with a happy heart on purpose, and let God bless you!!!

My daughter asked me what I meant by "Spider Potential". I asked her why she was afraid of spiders and she said, "Because they might bite me and they might be poisonous!" So there are 2 reasons she gave me of the potential of a spider: biting and poisonous. That is the potential that spider had that created her fear, or the definition of fear - reverencing in awe, or giving your respect to. She reverenced in awe about the potential of that spider and what it MIGHT do. She never thought of HER potential of what she CAN do....smash it! Spider potential is gone.
I've heard that the devil goes about like a roaring lion seeking whom he can destroy... that doesn't mean he has power. He only has spider potential. God gave us authority over him meaning we have power to overcome the devils temptations through the name Jesus!
Same thing with every day "reverencing in awe". Everyone looks at the potential of the "thing", situation, occuarance, and thought that they give in to the potential of the "IT" instead of stopping and searching within yourself to the potential you have. What is the potential you have?
"God dwells in the temple that is built with out hands, which temple you are..."
"Have you not read that you are the temple...?"
"Father, let them understand that I am in you, and you are in me and we are in them..."
If God then dwells in you, and God has no limits, then your potential is limitless! The potential is in you already. God anoints you, God gives you strength, God gives you wisdom, God gives you victory!! Spider potential --- gone!
God is glorified and you are victorious! So the next time you feel fear or reverencing in awe... Look within to find your God Potential and smash that Spider Potential until it is gone!

Disappointment can feel like: Hope lost, but it doesn't need to feel that way. As you look inside and are Honest with yourself, you can find that it is stemming from your internal idea's of expectations. It doesn't mean that perticular person or thing has control over you to remove hope. You just had an expectation placed there inside that didn't work at that time. It doesn't mean your wrong.... It just means: IT wasn't the right time. We can not forget it is God's timing.
