5 Steps to Get out of Financial Prison

5 Steps to Get out of Financial Prison

I had a vision of those who are called to be part of financing new moves of God and revivals on Earth. They are also known as those with the anointing of Joseph—the Joseph people.

Early in Joseph’s life, he had dreams from the Lord on how God was going to use him with great authority. In Genesis 41, Joseph was far from what looked like the fulfillment of the prophecy. He was in prison, being kept on hold. He was waiting on the Lord to call him on the scene. And at the right time, Joseph interpreted the dreams of Pharaoh and brought a great change to the world.

I saw those who had similar callings. But like Joseph, nothing was working for them and they were now in a spiritual prison of fear and doubt that they had even heard the Lord. They had positioned themselves in front of a door that was closed, but the Lord gave a command. The light of the Lord came upon them, and the strategy to open the door was released.

This is happening now. God is bringing His light on those who have been saved for such a time as this, to release finances for the purposes of the Kingdom of God. This is going to finance future revivals and humanitarian projects to save those who are suffering.

The financial recovery process revealed

In February, I had an encounter where the Lord showed me those who have greater callings on their lives like that of the Joseph people. This is not limited to those with this Joseph calling. It is for anyone who has suffered financial losses or felt they missed the Lord. Those who have heard the Lord on things, but they have now found themselves standing before a closed door and are feeling alone.

I was shown a strategy from the book of Matthew, chapters 6–7. This is a 5-step process that will help anyone who is at this place in their life.

5 steps to recovery

1. We need to have clear “eyes,” or the ability to have eyes to see, as Jesus said. People’s vision has grown dim and they are in darkness (not the kind that is from rejecting the Lord). This is a time like Joseph where people are feeling alone and forgotten.

“The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. But if your eyes are unhealthy, your whole body will be full of darkness. If then the light within you is darkness, how great is that darkness!” Matthew 6:22–23 NIV

2. Many have been going through a time of being purged of the world system of money and greed.

“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.” Matthew 6:24 NIV

3. It is important to trust the Lord and not fall into doubt, fear or worry. Things are going to work out and open up for you.

“Therefore, I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?” Matthew 6:25 NIV

4. The process of recovery will involve getting rid of judgments. For many, it was judgments that caused the financial flow to stop.

“Do not judge, or you too will be judged. For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” Matthew 7:1–2 NIV

5. Be proactive right now. Ask the Lord. Seek wisdom and revelation. Knock on the doors. Watch for them to open!

“Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” Matthew 7:7 NIV

Here’s a recap of the 5-step recovery process:

  • Ask God for clear vision. Matthew 6:22–23
  • Get healed of the love of money and the world system. Matthew 6:24
  • Trust and do not worry. Matthew 6:25
  • Do not judge others.  Matthew 7:1–2
  • Ask, seek and knock for the strategy. Matthew 7:7

As you take these steps, you are going to see amazing changes begin to happen. God will release to you greater insight into what to do next. Get ready to break free and watch doors begin to open.

Blessings

    I desired to feed those who hunger and lack on a daily basis. Even as a youth. I have been able to help on a very small scale. I’m believing God will grant me the ability to supply the needs of those who desperately need meals and good nutrients to survive and thrive. Thank you for using your gift of activation! I receive it!

    Your blogs are amazing, bro! It’s like God hears my cry, and then sends you the specific answer I need, to share at the exact right time! Freaky supernatural! I just love our God and how He operates! I will pray and apply this to my situation. Wasn’t aware that “judgments” were part of this issue. But Holy Spirit opened my eyes to this aspect (ouch!) and I know He will guide me through. God bless you so much (and when my finances are healed…I pray I will be able to bless you financially!)

    Thank you Doug for your obedience in hearing from God and sharing these strategies! This is so timely! I know I heard from God about somethings but the journey has been so lonely and financially disappointing that I find myself afraid to believe again! I get back up and try again and yet again… So today, I thank you for this word because I am at that door again needing major funds and I so needed this strategy to keep me from falling into worry, fear and ultimately unbelief. May God richly bless you, your family and your ministry as you have so graciously blessed others. Super-abundance to you and your staff❣

      Psalm 127 says, “Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, So are the children of one’s youth. How blessed is the man whose quiver is full of them; They will not be ashamed When they speak with their enemies in the gate.” As you train your children up in knowing God, they will be powerful!

    I am blessed dear brother! Please, intercede for our ministry in India. When the Lord called me for the full time ministry, my first vow was that I will not put out my hands to men for my family and ministry needs. Our 45 years, the Lord provided and sustained us in unbelievable ways. We are extremely grateful.

    But suddenly, Molly and I lost our only son aged 26, a B.Tech, MBA fellow four years ago. Our ministry partners deserted one by one, And our 3 married daughters are happy but with no jobs and struggle now.

    We need your prayers. With all these issues, I pray and wait for the “Ravens of Elijah”, to bring the provision or Gabriel.
