Hasn’t God chosen the poor of this world to be rich in faith, and to be heirs of the Kingdom that is promised to those who love Him? (James 2:5).
To be rich in faith, must mean to be rich in assurance of things hoped for, and thereby receiving the evidence of things not seen.
Can those who are the poor of this world receive visions and dreams?
Can they prophecy according to the measure of their faith?
Of course they can. Let him who prophecies, prophecy according to the measure of faith (Romans 12).
We are called to build one another up in the most Holy Faith (1 Thessalonians 5:11).
We all must also build ourselves up in the most Holy Faith, praying in the Holy Spirit (Jude 1:20).
If we build ourselves up in the Spirit, then we are enabled to build others up.
There are many who have gone through hard, difficult times in their lives, who struggle to build themselves up, who struggle to even lay a foundation upon which to build their faith.
The adversary makes it his priority to keep people in that predicament; to keep people distracted from the reality of the power of God being manifest in their lives.
The anointing of the Holy Spirit is what breaks the yoke of bondage. The devil fears the day when the calling of God empowers the called out out ones to walk in the power of God.
This includes you, as well as your brothers and sisters in Christ. Whether you are rich or poor, you are called to walk in the anointing that The LORD has placed on your life.
You have a very specific skill set in the Spirit that is powerful and effective. Your skill set is empowered by the indwelling, enabling Presence of the Spirit of the LORD.
Therefore, be filled with the Spirit, and pray in the Spirit to build yourself up, to edify yourself, so that you can be what you are called to be.
And the Word of the LORD will come alive to you as Rhema Word; The Word That Is Sent.
When the Word of the LORD is alive in you, you will find your armor, to ward off the fiery darts of the enemy.
“I send forth My Word; it will not return to Me cancelled out. It will accomplish the purpose for which I sent it,” Isaiah 55:11.
