LIVE LIFE WITHOUT DEFICITS The following article is taken from the October 2012 publication "Voice of the

Covenant" - by Jesse Duplantis Ministries. In my ever, ongoing task to GO YE INTO ALL THE WORLD WHAT IS A DEFICIT? What is a deficit? Some people think that the word is only related to finances but, to me, that word means nothing more than lack. It’s the opposite of what God wants for you, which is abundance. You see, you could be living with a deficit of health, a deficit of joy, a deficit of peace, or a deficit of prosperity. But that’s not what God wants for you. God wants you and me to be full and entire, wanting nothing. In other words, living a life of abundance, a life without deficits! When you have a deficit in any area of your life, whether it’s spiritual, physical or financial, it causes you to struggle in life. Deficit spending in the world today causes a lot of trouble. People buy what they can’t afford and feel happy for a moment, but when the bill comes in, you sure don’t see them smiling. Many people live with a deficit of health. In my family, we have a lot of heart trouble, cancer, and diabetes. Well, I know that we are a family that lives in a health deficit, but I’ve decided that it’s not for me. I’ve decided to live without deficits of health. So, some of my family calls me crazy, but I don’t care. I am choosing the report of the Lord over the report of my family. It’s called an abundance of health, and I like it! I also grew up in poverty. I hated it. Nobody likes to be broke. Sure, I grew up and made a lot of money in rock music, but that money wasn’t prosperity at all; it was just money. Prosperity is God’s abundance and I may have had a fat roll of money in my pocket, but it was worthless compared to the abundance of Christ! Once I got born again, I still didn’t understand the concept of prosperity. I had a traditional view and accepted a deficit of prosperity. It wasn’t until 1991 that I got a revelation of sowing and reaping and, since then, I haven’t looked back. I don’t want to live in a deficit of God’s prosperity. I choose to walk in His abundance! If Jesus tarries and I go by the way of the grave, I want to go out with joy. I want to say, “Lord, into Your hands I commit my spirit” and then, Foom! I’m out of here! That’s part of living my life without deficits. No sickness, no poverty, no misery, and no other curse from the enemy is going to cause me to live in a deficit, or below my benefits as a believer. Jesus Christ came to this Earth so that I might live free—free from the curse of sin and all its effects and deficits. I’m not genetically linked up with anybody but the Lord Jesus Christ and Him crucified. I’ve got God in my life and that means that I don’t have to live in lack. I’m living a devoted life and, to me, it’s the only way to live!
