Understanding Our Generous Portion Through Scripture Writing

The freedom from small mindedness – would you believe that’s one of the definitions of generosity?

God certainly isn’t small minded.

He has a generous portion for us, including salvation, healing whether physical, or emotional and deliverance from our fears.

The story of Abraham keeps standing out to me and how generous God was with Abraham which enabled him to be generous in return.

God has so much for us.  So many spiritual riches including the ability to pray for others and see them set free from sickness and other dramas that are holding them back.

Just this month I’ve seen three cases of morning sickness dramatically improve, my husband prayed for someone and their asthma attack stopped and he prayed for his cousin and saw a case of debilitating shingles that had attacked his stomach and kept him in bed for a month completely healed overnight.

We know it’s there, but how do we get access to it?

Actually it was just pre Covid when I started looking up Who God says we are and in the things He has blessed us with and writing them out in categories that it began to click in my head just how generous He is.

King James Bible
That the communication of thy faith may become effectual by the acknowledging of every good thing which is in you in Christ Jesus.

Our faith begins to become effectual as we acknowledge every good thing we have in Christ.

Philemon 1:6

New Living Translation
And I am praying that you will put into action the generosity that comes from your faith as you understand and experience all the good things we have in Christ.

There are actually so many Scriptures about what we have IN CHRIST.

Kenneth Hagin used to tell his mentees to take a highlighter and go through highlighting every time in the New Testament that they found the phrase IN CHRIST.

Here is just a snippet of what I began writing out, and each heading had between 4-8 references, just whatever I could fit on the page.  Writing actually rewires our brain and God says to have our mind renewed by His Word.  I highly recommend Scripture writing as a way to build positive strongholds in our mind.

I Am a Child of God

1 John 3:1, Eph 2:18, Eph 1:6, 1 John 5:18, 1 John 5:1, Gal 4:6-7, John 1:12-13, 2 Cor 6:18, Gal 3:26-27, Rom 8:15, Gal 3:26-27

I am Christ’s Friend

John 15:15, John 15:13-14, James 2:23-24, Exodus 33:11

I am United with the Lord

John 15:16, John 17:20, 1 Cor 6:17, Rom 8:91-10, 1 Cor 12:27

I Have Been Justified

I am a Temple of the Holy Spirit

I am a Citizen of Heaven

I am Redeemed and Forgiven

Am in Christ

I am an Overcomer

I am a Witness and Co-Worker

I am Anointed and Sealed

I am a Saint

I am Established in Christ

I Have the Mind of Christ

  1. The freedom from a smallish mind
    is mark of generosity,
    the sight returning to the blind,
    defeat flipped into victory.
    We’re born into a cage of bone,
    living in a mirror-hall,
    thinking that in pride we own
    our life, but pride precedes the fall,
    and we find we are beholden
    to world and not just our reflection,
    the way it was enjoined in olden
    books to call out our direction
    in the tapestry of being
    which, now, only God is seeing.
