If you feel words like new levels of provision are for you, there are both some practical steps as well as spiritual guidelines which can help bridge the gap between revelation and actualization.

(Author’s note: Parts of this article are excerpted from a 2016 article titled, Accessing Wealth for Kingdom Purposes.)

In light of the fact that I (and other prophetic voices) have heard the Lord saying things like in 2024 doors of miraculous, supernatural provision are opening, and that the wealth of the nations is coming to you, I want to discuss strategies to access wealth for kingdom purposes. I’ve learned it can be one thing to receive prophetic revelation, and quite another to apprehend it!

What prompted me to write the initial article in 2016 was that Cindy Jacobs had prophesied to my husband and me that the Lord was opening the gate of property to us—that we would own houses and lands to be used, of course, for kingdom purposes.

This prophecy had really intrigued me. One reason was that, although we had a background in construction and already owned some income properties, our mindset at that time was akin to “treading water,” and we were not looking to expand.

Another reason was that prophetic voices at that time were talking about “open doors,” “double portion,” and even “gates of provision” opening for God’s people.

It seemed God wanted us to move out of “safe mode.” As I began seeking the Lord, I felt He started showing us how to access, or “attend to,” this revelation. Proverbs 29:18 (MSG) says: “If people can’t see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; but when they attend to what He reveals, they are most blessed.”

If you feel words like new levels of provision are for you, there are both some practical steps as well as spiritual guidelines which can help bridge the gap between revelation and actualization.

Step One: Getting Ready

To access new levels of wealth, it’s important to examine our mindsets regarding wealth from a biblical perspective. Here are some thoughts to start the process of examining what you believe to prepare for receiving new levels of provision:

  • Do you truly believe that wealth results from being blessed by the Lord? (Prov. 10:22; Deut. 28:1-14)
  • Do you seek after wisdom, believing it to be the foundation for riches? (Prov. 8:18, 21)
  • Do you understand kingdom principles of wealth—such as that a king demonstrates his power by his wealth or that you cannot out give a king? (See 1 Kings 10; Luke 6:38.)
  • Do you realize that glimpses of wealth in the heavenly kingdom (such as found throughout Revelation—streets of gold, thrones set with jewels, etc.) are meant to provoke us? Do you believe you are a joint heir with Christ—meant to share His power, His wisdom, His riches, His strength? (See Rom. 8:17; Rev. 5:12.)
  • Do you have faith to receive wealth? In Matthew 9:29 (MSG), Jesus said to the two blind men, “Become what you believe!”

Ask the Lord to break any curses of poverty (generational or otherwise), and to help you renew your mind in this area. (Rom. 12:2)

Other areas to consider include common sense measures such as living within your means, reducing or eliminating debt, and not being afraid to work hard (Prov. 10:4).

Also, make sure you haven’t settled into “survival mode.” It’s important to believe the best is yet to come—not just spiritually speaking, but in areas of business and finances as well. (See Eccl. 7:8-10; Ezek. 36:8-11.)

Step Two: Ask, Seek, Knock

 Luke 11:9-10 is key to actively pressing into new levels of provision. This passage says (NKJV): “So I say to you, ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened.”

Spiritually, we knock at the door by asking the Lord to reveal wealth creation strategies to us by His Holy Spirit. Naturally speaking, we knock at the door by not being afraid to act on things we sense He reveals; this usually requires some type of risk and investment.

A personal example of risk that my husband and I have recently taken is that in the last year we bought a ranch. (I’ve previously written about this.) The kicker was that in order to secure the ranch property, it meant writing the offer not contingent on the sale of our old property. In other words, since both my husband and I had a strong sense that the Lord had led us to and directed us to buy this ranch, we felt comfortable taking a large risk to secure it. (This does not mean we were always comfortable in the risk, mind you—just that we were comfortable taking it.)

As it turned out, it was a long and wild ride before we sold and closed on our old property, but it did finally happen, and in the process, we increased considerably in our levels of faith, and in our financial bottom line, as well.

The Lord is no respecter of persons, and as you follow His leading, I’m convinced He’ll do similar things for you. Begin asking the Lord what training, investment, or movement towards releasing His provision you need to make. For some, the Lord has already been speaking to you about some type of opportunity. Recognize that by faith, a door of opportunity for wealth creation exists.

Step 3: Entering a Lifestyle of “What’s Mine Is Yours”

I believe the Lord intends us to live as if we’ve heard by His Spirit, “What’s Mine is yours.” If you believe this word is for you, there are six things I sense Holy Spirit saying you need to do.

  1. Make a list of what has been stolen from you. If you were robbed in the natural, the first thing you would likely do is make a list for the police. God wants a written record of what needs to be restored to you.
  2. Begin calling in the wealth you need to do what God is asking you to do. Review prophetic words. Be bold.
  3. Begin asking for strategies to be shown to you. You must be open to taking risks (as you sense the Lord directing you).
  4. Start looking for places to give. Extravagantly. The faith you release in doing this will open troves of treasure to you.
  5. Begin asking for the wealth of nations to be revealed to you. What’s blocking His provision (to you)? Is it corruption? Is it poverty brought about by curses to the land? Pray for restoration in the areas He reveals so that provision may begin to flow.
  6. Don’t be impatient. Releasing wealth can take time. But as you take one step it will lead to another—until the whole plan is revealed.

For His faithful ones, it is time—doors of provision and wealth are opening. It is also a time of increased angelic activity. I believe angels of provision are standing by at the ready—let’s give them something to do!
