The Hindrances for God’s Provision in your life
- The Orphan Spirit
- The Slave Mindset
- Poverty Mentality
The Orphan Spirit
John 14:18 – I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.
Characteristics of an Orphan Spirit
1.) Very Competitive, Always looking for attention.
- God already accepted them…
2.) Independent Spirit; Rebellious Spirit
- They have this feeling that they don’t belong.
3.) Fear and Insecurity
- No confidence, always have a need to prove themselves.
- They feel the need to keep on doing well to earn the approval of others(of their parents/God).
- Desire to perform well.
The Salve Mindset
John 15:15 – No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you.
“A servant attitude is different from a slave mentality/mindset.”
Poverty Mentality – mentality based on fear (fear of lack, fear of want, etc.)
Exodus 16:14-20 – God provides for His people but they have been slave for so long and along with it comes their poverty mentality.
Example of Poverty Mentality:
“To overcome these hindrances, we have to go back to the Word of God, renew our mind and align ourselves to God.”
