Your Perception Generally Becomes Your Reality
Did you know that the way you perceive God can keep you from knowing the truth about Him? It’s true.
Your perception of a person, even if it is wrong, will keep you from seeing him or her as they really are. That is the reason I make this statement:
You will have the God you perceive.
If you perceive Him as a poor god, you will always think He is trying to get money from you. But when you understand He is a rich God, you will realize He is trying to get money to you not from you.
Your perception of God and His relationship to your financial status will cause you to see Him in one of two ways: He will be either Jehovah Needy or Jehovah Jireh.
