Halftime: Breaking The Spirit of Poverty


Halftime: Breaking The Spirit of Poverty

Mike Popenhagen


Matthew 6:24 
No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money. 

5 Reasons People Don’t Trust God With Finances:

  1. Ignorance

  2. Disobedience

  3. Selfishness or Greed

  4. Fear or Worry

  5. Immaturity

How To Break The Spirit of Poverty:

1. Acknowledge all provision is from God.

Deuteronomy 8:17-18
You may say to yourself, “My power and the strength of my hands have produced this wealth for me.” 18 But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant. 

2. Avoid the subtlety of debt

Proverbs 22:7
The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is slave to the lender.

3. Adopt the practice of tithing.

Malachi 3:10  
Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.
