To many, the phrase “FIXED INCOME” brings to mind those who are on Social Security, Disability, or Retirement (or a mixture of all). This carries a “set-in-stone” ideology.<br />
Today, my intent, with the help of the Holy Spirit and the Word of God, is to show you that ALL of our INCOME is assuredly FIXED! But not as you normally think of “FIXED” income. It’s a GOD kind of FIX!<br />
Let’s be sure we are on the same page with the scriptures about “BLESSINGS.”<br />We are God’s testimony….<br />“Do everything without complaining or arguing. (15) Then you will be innocent and without any wrong. You will be God's children without fault. But you are living with crooked and mean people all around you, among whom you shine like stars in the dark world.”<br />Philippians 2:14-15, NCV<br />
There is NOTHING wrong with wanting to be blessed!<br />“Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart.”<br />Psalms 37:4, NKJV<br />“Then David spoke to the men who stood by him, saying, ‘What shall be done for the man who kills this Philistine and takes away the reproach from Israel?’”<br />1 Samuel 17:26a, NKJV<br />
“Sing to the Lord, bless His name; Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.”<br />Psalms 96:2, NKJV<br />OT:3444 yeshuw`ah (yesh-oo'-aw); something saved, i.e. (abstractly) deliverance; hence, aid, victory, prosperity.<br />OT:3442 Yeshuwa` (yay-shoo'-ah); for OT:3091; he will save.<br />OT:3091 Yehowshuwa` (yeh-ho-shoo'-ah); or Yehowshu`a (yeh-ho-shoo'-ah); from OT:3068 and OT:3467; Jehovah-saved; Jehoshua (i.e. Joshua). (TH - This is the OT name for JESUS – “for He shall save His people from their sins” – Matthew 1:21).<br />
First, we have to get some terminology straight.<br /><ul><li>INCOME includes MONEY, but it is far more that that. We will not limit ourselves to a FIXED mindset of what God desires for us just by thinking of MONEY.
One of the definitions of INCOME is “something that comes in as an addition or increase.”
Areas in which God desires to FIX your income will include, but not be limited to: Love, Grace, Mercy, Peace, Revelation, Favor, Promotion, Health, and Finances.</li></li></ul><li>FIX:<br />To repair something that is broken.<br />To restore something to a pristine condition.<br />“In reply Jesus declared, ‘I tell you the truth, no one can see the kingdom of God unless he is born again.’”<br />John 3:3, NIV<br />
FIX:<br /><ul><li>Something that has been set in a predetermined fashion.
To arrange or influence the outcome.</li></ul>Psalms 47:1, Isaiah 54:17, Isaiah 59:19, 2 Corinthians 1:20, and 2 Corinthians 2:14<br />
FIX:<br />A compulsively sought dose or infusion.<br />An addict needs a “fix”.<br />“Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!” Psalms 34:8, NKJV<br />“I desire to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart.”<br />Psalms 40:8, NIV<br />“I was glad when they said to me, ‘Let us go into the house of the Lord.’” Psalms 122:1, NKJV<br />
FIX:<br />To get even with.<br />“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, (5) casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, (6) and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled. <br />2 Corinthians 10:4-6, NKJV<br />
Child of God – Your INCOME is FIXED!<br /><ul><li>What was broken has been FIXED!
Your victorious outcome has been FIXED – it’s RIGGED!
You can get your FIX when you are addicted to His Word/Promises!
You can FIX your adversary by making up for your mistakes!</li></li></ul><li>Income: Something that comes in as an addition or increase!<br />Love, Grace, Mercy, Peace, Revelation, Favor, Promotion, Health, and Finances.<br />
