WEDNESDAY, AUGUST 8, 2021
There is a time for every purpose under heaven. The 18th day of the eighth month – August – is one of those prophetic markers you and I need to be aware of and it’s all about financial justice and blessing.
We know the number 8 is God’s number for New Beginnings, new birth and transformation. The specific Hebrew word for eight is “shemoneh,” which means “plumpness” coming from a root word meaning “fat, rich, robust.”
Eighteen is God’s number for Life, and He came so we would not only have life, but have it in abundance. He doesn’t want His people to lack because we have kingdom work to do and money is ministry. The Jews get this concept. When they give financial gifts, they give them in prophetic increments of 18 for abundance.
Here are some verses you can use to declare and decree the promises of God for abundant life in your finances.
Proverbs 8:18 – Riches and Honor are from Him
Riches and honor are with me, Enduring riches and righteousness.

And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.

Then the Lord said to Joshua, “Stretch out the spear that is in your hand toward Ai, for I will give it into your hand.” And Joshua stretched out the spear that was in his hand toward the city. (The enemy didn’t steal Joshua’s victory at Ai. He defeated himself by not seeking the Lord’s counsel. The in-a-me.)

Then, by the good hand of our God upon us, they brought us a man of understanding, of the sons of Mahli the son of Levi, the son of Israel, namely Sherebiah, with his sons and brothers, eighteen men…
