Dunamis Seeds Of Destiny 12 February 2023 Devotional By Dr. Paul Enenche: Poverty Or Prosperity – A Matter Of Mentality
TOPIC: Poverty Or Prosperity – A Matter Of Mentality (Seeds Of Destiny 12 February 2023)
SCRIPTURE: For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee. Proverbs 23:7
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Real wealth begins by mental renovation while scarcity is a product of mental bankruptcy.
The Scripture makes it clear that one way God expands His Kingdom is through the prosperity of His people (Zechariah 1:17). Therefore, God is delighted in the prosperity of His servants because when His servants prosper, His Kingdom also prospers (Psalm 35:27).
In our study today, we shall look at the fact that both prosperity and poverty are products of mentality. Poverty is not the absence of money and wealth is not the presence of money.
A person is not poor because he lacks money and a person is not rich because he has money. Money will not make a poor man rich and the absence of money will not make a rich man poor. Poverty and prosperity are products of mentality. Those who are poor lack a certain mentality and those who are wealthy have a certain mentality.
Proverbs 23:7 says,
For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he…’
There is no amount of money that you give a man who is bankrupt of mentality that can make him rich.
I have seen people who got into political offices and became wealthy overnight, and also became paupers overnight after leaving the office, all because of bankruptcy of mentality. That is why many politicians struggle to remain in office for life because they cannot survive outside the office.
You see, real wealth begins by mental renovation while scarcity is a product of mental bankruptcy.
My counsel for you today is, make up your mind to renew your mind. Upgrade your mentality and your financial status will also be upgraded.
Remember this: Real wealth begins by mental renovation while scarcity is a product of mental bankruptcy.
- Refuse to live the low life of mental bankruptcy.
- Make up your mind to renew your mind with the Word and revolutionize your financial life.
PRAYER: Lord, I ask for the grace to renew my mind always with Your Word. Deliver me from the bankruptcy of mentality, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.

AMAZING FACT: The natural fruit sugars in honey – fructose and glucose – are quickly digested by the body. This is why sportsmen and athletes use honey to give them a natural energy boost.
PROPHETIC DECLARATION/WORD: I pray that the Lord grant you the right mentality in matters of financial resources in Jesus’ Name.
