Protection by a Barrier of Faith
For many years, when hard financial times came, Mandi and I would
get discouraged. Defeat would try to slip in Ö with almost every
battle. But we found a strategy in God principles of seed, time
and harvest that changed everything! It governed how our flesh
responded to toil and financial brokenness and we were never
without hope again.
God inspired giving created a barrier of faith and hope that
discouragement could no longer overtake.
Jesus said remember me. We remember the cross to remember His
love, His redemption, His grace and forgiveness so that we do not
loose hope and continue fight the good fight of faith.
Remembering is a big key to maintaining the right humility and
posture of heart towards the Lord and having the mind of Christ
while in this earth.
Abba showed us this important principle of remembrance. In the old
testament he instructed the Israelites to gather ď stones of
remembranceĒ from the dry land where they crossed over Jordan to
remind each generation of how He provided and loves them. In the
new testament we are instructed to remember Jesusí shed blood and
resurrection through communion. ďDo this in remembrance of me.Ē
Remembering the cross as monument to the shed blood of Jesus to
remind us the He is alive, has saved our lives from death unto
life and is coming again. The cross is a point of remembrance. We
wear it around our neck, it adorns the steeples of church
buildings, its on our journals hymnals, and bibles. No its not
two pieces of wood and nails that we remember, its the point of
remembrance of what God did and will do!
Itís our peace of mind in times of pain, trouble, and circumstance
that because of who He is, what Heís done, and what Heís promised,
we are victors in Christ and greater is He that is in us than
whatís in the world. That Heís alive and coming again!
We sow as unto the Lord at this time of the year towards a harvest
for the rest of the year.. as point of remembrance.
Now whether we sow or not, we know that our needs are taken care
of because what good father would not provide for His childrenís
needs? However, when it comes to increase and abundance, that
state of more than enough, itís sowing as unto the Lord that gives
us that hope. It gives us that faith that lets us obtain the
promise! At first we gave like it was a regular offering but In
latter years we gave bigger with respect to what we could because
looking back and remembering, when we saw that we could have
trusted Him with more, just didnít sit well. The best
encouragement was being able to look back and know we gave all
that we could like the widows mite and that God would always out-
give us back!
Isnít it amazing how truth, even simple truth just illuminates
us!? Knowing this truth sets us free!
This simple strategy was a huge revelation that literally set us
free! Knowing this truth and acting on it created protection from
fleshly mind sets that react to what we see, instead of what we
know. When the shaking comes, we remember He is faithful and that
we sowed into His provision over our lives. We can have hope in
what we know(who) and not in what we see and it works every time!
know right now those who have discovered this simple strategy for
financial hope are saying a big AMEN right now. And you who are
awakening to this revelation. You are relived that this truth has
come and given you a plan to set you free from discouragement,
from financial pain. Trust God. Strategically sow into this
revelation and donít fall into fear over your finances ever again.
If you are being led by the Spirit of God to sow into this
ministry right now and feel the anointing for breakthrough, move
quickly. Iíd even print the receipt of your love gift and put it

Remember His promise of provision. If you never sowed a dime your
needs will still be met but if you want that abundance and more
than enough promise, release Godís hands to yield you a harvest
