How To Ask God For Divine Financial Sponsorship!

How To Ask God For Divine Financial Sponsorship!

Excerpt From Chapter 5 of my book: Faith At Full Speed “Divine Sponsorship”

My Victorious Friend, when you are in complete faith, stand on ALL the promises of God through Jesus Christ (old and new testament) and love what God loves, stay in covenant with God and be careful not to get into any covenant with anything that God despises – you will see the blessings (and divine financial sponsorship) of God come into your life at supersonic speed!

How To Do Kingdom Giving, Banking and Investing – Expecting A Return On Your Investment By Faith!

When giving to the Lord, we have the tithe (our obedient 10%) or an offering (over and above the tithe that is given with the intent of love for the Lord and believing Him in making good on His promise in Malachi 3:10) our first fruits (a first offering to the Lord each year or the first of something new the Lord has done in your life – first paycheck of a new job, first sale of a new book, etc) Then there is a seed offering (where you intentionally give unto the kingdom of God and name the offering as a “seed” that you will be expecting a harvest from. )

When you plant corn you don’t get daisies, right? You expect a corn harvest. It’s all about being specific with your seed. So you write your check, or send it via website, you write what the name of the seed and what the harvest you are expecting by faith. So you have a $25 seed, you say this prayer over your check or transaction:

“Father, Thank you for this $25. I offer this up to you Father and plant this as a seed into your Kingdom and I name this seed “new car”. I believe by faith that this shall produce a harvest for which it is sent according to Your word Father in Isaiah 55:11 that so My word that proceeds from My mouth will not return to Me empty, but it will accomplish what I please, and it will prosper where I send it.. In Jesus name I receive my new car in faith, Thank you Father, Amen”

You can even name your seed “for the salvation of my loved one _____” or “for the restoration of my marriage” or “for the returning home of my prodigal _________”

YOU CANNOT EXPECT A HARVEST OF BREAKTHROUGHS AND FINANCES IF YOU DON’T PLANT ANY SEEDS

(click here to sow a seed now – name it and we will pray over it and come into agreement with your seed offering into our ministry)

God makes it simple and wants us to understand Kingdom Finance and Giving.  Once your check or offering is decreed by faith into the Kingdom of God, it changes realms and is not under the earth curse system, but God’s unlimited Kingdom, where there is no lack – only abundance.

You also want to make sure the ministries where you “plant” your seed are growing and producing much fruit of the Holy Spirit and advancing the Kingdom of God. You want to sow into “fertile ground”.

You can also decree a 1000 fold return on your seed financially. WHEN YOU GIVE – GIVE WITH FAITH AND SAY: I AM BELIEVING GOD FOR 1000 FOLD RETURN ON MY SEED!! ACCORDING DEUT. 1:11 – “Father I sow this seed of $____ into your Kingdom and decree by faith over this seed that it will be blessed and multiply 1000 fold financial return according to Your promise in Deuteronomy 1:11 for me and my household and the ministry I am sowing it into in Jesus name, Amen!”

There are many teachings out there on Kingdom finances and giving. I have been guided directly by the Holy Spirit on Kingdom giving and I am excited to share this with you because I have received abundantly!  He will never steer you wrong and I want to encourage you to seek Him deeper on your finances too!  I also find it powerful giving your “FIRST FRUITS” to your loving Heavenly Father. First Fruits is a direct gift of love back to God – and it pleases God.  The Holy Spirit has given me a good understanding of how this works and why God set it up this way. It’s all very sacred and all very beautiful when giving to the Father and thinking of Him first.  The best understanding is this wonderful teaching I heard one time, I cannot remember where I heard it but it has stuck with me……

First Fruits Offering Is Like a Box of Chocolates!

“A father has two young sons, he wants to bless them each with a beautiful box of assorted chocolates. He gives each boy their box of chocolates and tells them he loves them and to enjoy. One boy runs to his room and digs eagerly into the box, and quickly eats up all the candy, chocolate all over his face, and is full and satisfied.  The other boy, stays near the father, opens the box of chocolates, thanks the father for the gift, and reaches the opened box  back up to the father, and says; “Father, would you like the first piece?”

Oh, how I love that little story! It fills my heart with the true relationship of how we are to be with our loving Father God! Even when we get great blessings – He wants to share them with us!  This is the First Fruits.  I have found when I do this my relationship with God grows deeper, and more good gifts that come from above to share with Him!

James 1:17, KJV: “Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”

When God brings your DIVINE SPONSORSHIP, bless Him back with the first part of it.  This is a very powerful act, and when you do this with love – you are in the GLORY covering with your finances!  God says to TEST Him in your offerings and watch Him pour out a blessing that you can hardly contain!

Malachi 3:10 “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.”

Understanding God’s financial laws of sowing and reaping is key to your financial growth and divine sponsorships. Giving to Israel based missions is always important for your expediting finances and blessings and connecting yourself to the promises of Abraham. My ministry directly supports Israel. You should never come to the Altar of the Lord empty handed. You give what you can from the heart. Also understand when you give to a prophetic ministry you are blessed by a “Prophet’s Reward”. When we give to a prophet (like the shunamite woman did for Elisha) you receive major blessings and even miracles. My ministry operates under a prophetic mantle and we have seen so many words come to pass for those the Holy Spirit has spoken through me..  I am so grateful and humbled to operate in this calling and office of the kingdom!  God is TRUE to His word!

You have a choice to give an offering or sow a seed where you want.  God gives us free will, but we must give with the heart. I have learned it’s important to give where you are being fed the most. This is the “fertile ground”.  I also have been instructed many times by the Lord where and how much He wants me to give.  It’s important to step out in obedience – God will always return the blessing swiftly to you for your obedience. Obedience brings quick supernatural breakthrough!

Here is a prayer that I pray over my tithes, seeds and first fruit offerings to the Kingdom:

Tithing Money in the Kingdom – declare: “God is my treasure, God is my prosperity and my source of all my supply! God is my security!”

When you give, give with your heart in the kingdom – give to God  – I acknowledge God as my everything and He prospers me!

Lay your hand on the money, envelope or transaction you are giving to God. Then declare:  I acknowledge God as my prosperity and my source! He prospers me!

“Father, in the name of Jesus, I’m a believer! I believe what YOU say and YOU prosper the work of my hands!

My job, my family, my bank accounts, they are not my source!  You Father God are my source! You Father God are my prosperity!

I am grateful and I choose to worship You today Father God! In Jesus name! Amen!!”

A specific need – pray:

“Father God, your word says in Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Therefore, Father I desire ___________ and I believe I have received it today in Jesus name!  Thank you Father God!”

I am learning about this too as the Holy Spirit reveals – I have reaped much fruit from “Banking and Sowing/Reaping in the Kingdom” and wanting to give to my loving Father who gives so much to me. The key I have found is to use your money for the kingdom as much as possible and if you have to pay into something that is not fully aligned with the kingdom of God, take what you have to pay them and make it a seed unto the Lord for the salvation of the people who own that company you are paying. For example, I met a friend for lunch one day at a mexican place that was known for the fresh dishes. While in the place, I noticed a lot of pagan decor on the walls, such as Aztec sun gods etc. We prayed over our food, enjoyed our meal then when we went to pay we declared the money as a seed for salvation to Jesus Christ for the owners and all who were employed there!   The Kingdom is a lifestyle and when you command your money all day long and what you want it to do in Jesus name – you are at a level of GLORY with your finances – watch what God does for you when you come up to this level!  There is only “Shalem” (wholeness – fullness – life – peace) nothing lacking, nothing missing, nothing broken when you are fully operating in the Kingdom!  Plus it’s fun – every day is a Holy Spirit adventure and miracles are a regular occurrence!

I just love to have all my money flowing in for my needs and then put to use for advancing the Kingdom!  God is faithful to His word and promises, and if you carry these out by faith – you can expect DIVINE SPONSORSHIP for whatever you need and more!

Excerpt Chapter 1 “You Are Built For Performance” From The Book – Faith At Full Speed, By Annamarie Strawhand

Excerpt Chapter 1 “You Are Built For Performance” From The Book – Faith At Full Speed, By Annamarie Strawhand

YOU ARE BUILT FOR PERFORMANCE – BY ANNAMARIE STRAWHAND 

FROM THE UPCOMING BOOK: FAITH AT FULL SPEED – PRE ORDER HERE

Reaching a major goal or achieving a dream is like a winning race strategy. God has set us up to WIN if we follow His strategies in complete faith, and fully use what He has gifted us with. We will come into our divine purpose with amazing success.  

Everything in your life is like the preparation and laps in a race – bringing you to the finish line and ultimate victory.  It’s up to you how much power you want to activate behind it to accelerate it. If you are anything like me – you want to live a victorious life, doing your true purpose and be able to have the tools, the funds, the resources and people you need around you to live your dream with great blessing that overflows for your family and loved ones.

Ask yourself this question: What were you born for? Do you have enough faith to get there? God sees your potential.  He designed it in you. It’s time to activate it!

I saw this quote on social media recently, “When you meet Jesus, He activates the destiny blueprint within your spirit.” – Lance Wallnau

That quote really spoke to me.  Jesus is our master builder. I believe that it’s no accident that God had His only son, born in the flesh on earth to save us,  to be raised in the house of a carpenter (Joseph). What does a carpenter do? He starts with a design, draws it up (blueprints it), and creates it.  A great carpenter or builder not only fulfills a need with his creations, it actually can be celebrated as a work of art, that stands the test of time and serves many people for many generations.  This is a design like no other.  

Many times when I pray, I pray these words;  “Jesus, You are my master builder, activate the great plans and blueprints you have designed for me and let’s build build build together!”

In the Bible, Jeremiah Chapter 29 verse 11, God tells Jeremiah this same thing: “I have great plans for you”.

That means me and YOU, too.

You are designed for superior performance.  Like a high powered racing engine. 

When I was a little girl, my earthly father, Carmen Malfitana was a champion drag racer.  He had a very fast winning race car, a ‘55 Chevy Bel Air that he modified for speed. This car was legendary around the Upstate NY drag strips. My dad, with this very special car, set many speed records in the 1960’s that stood for years!  The track promoters even set up a race with a jet powered car to see if it could break the record against my dad and his Chevy. My dad still won by a smidge and held his record! As a child, I spent countless hours on a little rolling stool in the garage watching my dad work on his car, handing him wrenches and asking him questions.  My mom says my bedtime story with my dad, was reading Hot Rod and National Speed Sport Magazine, pointing to the beautiful shiny race cars on my daddy’s lap! No wonder my passion for fast cars! It was instilled in me at avery early age.

But, my dad’s biggest pride and joy in that race car was the custom built high performance engine, a 327 small block that had been built by the best engine guy in town.  My dad had collaborated with this engine builder to create a powerplant with “secret” characteristics and components that nobody else was using or knew about. This was to give it that extra pull off the starting line and all the way down the track.  Now get this – this engine was so unique it was “blueprinted” by the engine builder. 

In the motorsports world, when an engine is blueprinted that’s a pretty major thing – it means you have something so custom that when the engine performs, the engine builder wants to be able to have a blueprint to be able to keep recreating that same super fast performance for you. Building upon the original and keeping the specs unique to you, his special customer.  When you win, he wins. Because more customers will come wanting a special engine designed for them, too. Blueprinting an engine is also a winning edge for the racer, because he or she can keep the blueprint as a document for safe keeping for their race engine that nobody else can copy.  

You are built for special performance like nobody else has!

God wants to collaborate with you to take what He put in you – your specialized divine gifts – and make amazing things happen through you in your life!  He wants to ADVANCE you, and advance those around you through you and your unique calling! When you succeed and give Him the Glory you inspire more people to turn in faith to God for their lives too!  When you win, He (God) wins!

“A man’s gift makes room for him, And brings him before great men.” Proverbs 18:16

Here’s the deal.  A high performance engine is no good sitting on the engine stand in the garage.  It might look fast and powerful, but unless it’s “activated” with the rest of the things it needs to run and win – it’s just there collecting dust. 

Is your high performance purpose collecting dust?  Is your engine just sitting there waiting for you to start putting it to use?  

Maybe you have tried to put your gifts, purpose and calling to use but it never seems to get going or it needs to pick up some serious speed? 

That’s a question that we are going to answer right now!  Are you ready to rev up your purpose and activate your gifts so you can step off the starting line full speed into your divine calling? 

If the answer is YES then take a deep breath, close your eyes, hands on your heart and DECLARE this out loud:

“Father, I am ready to use the gifts you have put inside me and activate the divine purpose you have designed me for! I say YES to my calling right now in Jesus name, Amen!”

Did you feel it?  Did you feel your spirit power up inside you?  

Remember what Jesus said: “The Kingdom Lives Within You!” (Luke 17:21)

You just activated God’s unlimited Kingdom with its unlimited power in you with your words!  The power of life and death are in the tongue! You will learn as you go along in this book that the words that come out of your mouth are either added horsepower or dead weight to your purpose!  I want more horsepower, how about you? YES!

YOUR GARAGE (basement) TIME IS CRUCIAL TO YOUR SUCCESS!

YOUR GARAGE (basement) TIME IS CRUCIAL TO YOUR SUCCESS!

This is an excerpt from my upcoming book, “Faith At Full Speed – Your High Horsepower Manual To Success” I told this story on my Youtube broadcast on March 20th 2019 – and everyone was so moved by this story I wanted to share it here.
Uncle Dan – Basement Millionaire……
I was much younger when this amazing thing happened for my Uncle Dan, a Retired NAVY Chief. In the late 70’s and early 80’s after the NAVY my uncle had tried his hand at many different jobs and businesses looking to create something good for his family after leaving the NAVY, Including running a farm stand during the summers where we would go and help stack watermelons and lettuce – we had so much fun working with him and our cousins. Uncle Dan was a hard worker – he always put 110% into everything he did and a he was a natural leader. He loved people, and was good at creating solutions for others. These were his God given gifts.
One year in the mid 1980’s he was working a 9-5 job at General Electric Company in Upstate NY. He was building and organizing their computer systems and client training, which included military contracts. He had done a great job for them, and they sent him and his family to the west coast to build a program out there for the company. As soon as he arrived in California – he threw himself fully into the project, created the program, hired people and had everything in place, purchased a home and bought furniture ready for his family to move in.
A few days later, the GE Executives came to him out of the blue and said they wanted to drop the program out west with no real explanation. My uncle could not understand why, because everything was all set up perfectly and ready to go. He went and had meetings with them and no matter what he did, he could not convince them to keep it. They wanted him to just shut it down and move back east. This really upset my uncle and he looked the GE Executives in the eyes and said, “Well, I resign from this company and I will go and get these contracts myself!” The GE Executives laughed at him! This made my uncle even more determined, and he told them: “Watch me.”
Uncle Dan and his family moved back home to Syracuse, NY to a rented house. My aunt was working in a shoe store to make ends meet. She started to see her husband go down in the basement every day into a makeshift office with a phone and an old desktop computer and spend hours on end working on something top secret. One day, he came upstairs and said, “Maryellen – I am going to go and get these military training contracts. I am going to go up against GE and all the other big companies and get it. I am going to be working on my proposal and I just need you to make me coffee and meals – and be patient while I do this.”
My aunt was always a devoted military wife, and fully supported her husband on this next adventure. She trusted in his gifts and believed he could do it. As for me, in my early twenties at the time – I remember when my uncle was taking this serious “basement time” because when I went over there to hang out with my cousins – my uncle came upstairs and it looked like he had not slept for weeks! He was wearing a rumpled t-shirt and his beard was all grown out – I hardly recognized him!
My aunt said to us, “Try to be quiet because your uncle is working on something very important, please do not disturb him.”
At the time I really did not “get” what was going on or the importance of it until later in my adult life.
One day after weeks and weeks of “basement time”, my Aunt said my Uncle got up early in the morning, shaved, put on a nice suit and with his finished proposal, he said to my aunt: “Maryellen, when I go out this door today our lives could change immediately, I am going to give this everything I got – when I come back home we could be millionaires if they accept my proposal.” He was off to his meeting to present his proposal to the government to go up against all the corporate big guns.
Now that is FAITH and knowing without a doubt you have the gift to do something great with no fear.
A few days later an official letter came from the US Government, my Uncle Dan opened it. It was good news. He got the military contracts. He beat out GE and all the other big corporations! My Aunt said he held up the letter and yelled “Maryellen, we are millionaires – go quit your job at the shoe store and then we are going out to dinner!”
I remember things changed quickly for my uncle and his family, and there were celebrations and joyful happenings at their house with lots of food! Uncle Dan went on for many successful years doing these military contracts, they traveled to Spain, and took my grandmother on a trip to Italy. My cousins all got new computers almost every Christmas and they moved to a beautiful big house in Maryland. He retired 15 years later to Virginia Beach with a nice financial nest egg and was asked back into the NAVY as a Master Chief (which is one of the NAVY’s highest honors to serve as a mentor to other officers and upcoming officers).
I loved my uncle and I looked up to him – but I did not realize the lesson in all this and the impact of what he had done back in that “basement time”. I was young and all I saw was one day he was wearing an old t-shirt and growing a beard, and the next day he was driving a brand new Lincoln Continental and we were all going out for steak and lobster. Looking back, I really wish I had taken the time to understand what was really happening and asking more questions and learning more for my young mind.
In October of 2011, my Uncle Daniel Malfitana sadly passed away from cancer. He knew when his time was near so he told my aunt to take him to the NAVY Hospital where they stood and saluted him “Master Chief” as he left this world. At his funeral, they told the story in detail on how he got the big government contracts, the time in the basement and what he was preparing down there – and I was absolutely floored. I was so inspired and so encouraged by the fact that he knew what his gifts were, and he was upset that the people he worked for would not use and appreciate his gifts! He knew he was meant for something greater and he had enough faith and determination to go up against one of the biggest corporations in America (GE giant). Uncle Dan used what he had at hand, had faith and took his “garage time” (basement time) to make it happen. Uncle Dan, by great faith went up against the giant and defeated him. (who’s laughing now…)
I come from that DNA, that strong family bloodline, but I now also have the DNA of the King of Kings, Jesus Christ. I sat in that funeral saying goodbye to my Uncle, in his very last moment he left me a huge gift – I knew I could do anything and I could defeat my giants in front of me! I could get that big dream. Yes I can! It changed my life when I came to that realization.
We are meant to use our God given gifts fearlessly. Even if people laugh at us. God is behind it, nothing can come against it.
Think, what is in your DNA – who in your family did something extraordinary and brave? What did God put into your family bloodline that you also have? Most of all WHO lives inside of you now? Jesus said, the KINGDOM of God is within you. You have the power and might of Almighty God – King of the Universe is with you! Time for you to RUN towards that Giant. You will take the giant down and you will win!
“ David said to the Philistine, “You come against me with sword and spear and javelin, but I come against you in the name of the Lord Almighty, the God of the armies of Israel, whom you have defied.” – 1 Samuel 17:45
