If you are waiting for a financial breakthrough from God and the only thing you can think of is what you're going to do for yourself, that could be the delay in your breakthrough coming. You are blessed to be a blessing and if the only thing you want to do with your blessing is consume it upon yourself you have missed the purpose for which God provides financial resources. He gave you the power to get wealth to help implement and execute HIS PLANS for humanity. He is the divine warehouse and you are an earthly distribution center. However, if you only see yourself as a bucket and not also as a pipeline, you will never be fulfilled and always be looking for more than God (or others) should be doing for you.
You may be waiting on your breakthrough, but the flip side is that your breakthrough could be waiting on you. Here's a few questions to ask yourself as you wait:
Are you a blessing bottleneck?
We Christians must become more intentional about switching our focus from being blessing consumers to distributors. The truth of Matthew 6:33 has to become an unshakable reality that we live by. God wants to flow through you, and He will do it while taking care of you and your needs.
As we move further into 2014, God is going to invite you into profitable opportunities that are connected with helping other people. However, if you have a selfish perspective or are wrestling with fear/anxiety you will miss these opportunities because you will be blinded by the money. Don't be blinded by your own needs. Allow God to be God and trust Him to supply your provision as you submit to His plans.
