New Mexico is plagued with poverty and victim mentalities. These spirits have produced all the poverty and crime we see in our city and state. They are the dysfunctions that cause people to elect the people we have running and ruining our state. People feel entitled — they believe they deserve stuff instead of wanting to earn stuff.
The poverty and victim mentalities give rise to a scarcity mentality. People with this mentality believe that life has only so much — so much time, so much money, so much intelligence, so much of whatever resource they can name. So, if they give, they will have less. They may even believe in God. They believe God made the earth, but He didn’t make it big enough, and He made it with limited resources. Because of this scarcity mentality, people get deceived and start believing in the wrong things.
God didn’t make the earth too small, and He definitely didn’t make it with limited resources that will run out. This scarcity mentality is a stronghold for way too many. They need to be delivered from this type of thinking. These false beliefs hinder a person’s relationship with God. We need to believe the Bible and the words of our Lord Jesus. He came to give us life and life more abundantly (John 10:10) — to give us a rich and satisfying life. The enemy comes to steal, kill, and destroy. Don’t allow him any longer to deceive you into believing God is not big enough.
We really do need to learn and practice generosity. If we do, it could change our whole life.
