5 Reasons You Are Exempt From Supply-Chain Disruptions

5 Reasons You Are Exempt From Supply-Chain Disruptions


We’ve all heard the reports.

Supply-chain bottlenecks around the world have caused record shortages of many products that American consumers are used to having readily available, including household goods, electronics and automobiles, to name a few. Experts have warned that problems will likely get worse before they get better.

But here’s where the line is drawn.

We are not subject to failing economic times. In fact, we don’t just survive during times of famine—we thrive. Consider Job 5:20-22, which says, “He will save you from death in time of famine…. You will laugh at destruction and famine.”

The world will always tell you that you have the same limits they have. But we are separated from this world’s system. You have to shake off those things that try to rise up and put limits on you. Take the limits off because God has more that He wants you to walk in. He wants you to have your bills paid in full, living in a debt-free home with debt-free cars because He does not want you to be indebted or to be the servant of other people.

Pastor George Pearsons recently shared from the Word of God why we, as believers, never need to fear the state of the economy. Here are 5 Reasons You Are Exempt from Supply-Chain Disruptions and why you can shout for joy—no matter what is going on in the world around you.

1. You Are a Tither

“I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes.” – Malachi 3:11 (NKJV)

If you are a faithful tither, you are exempt from “supply-chain disruptions,” inflation and any other economic downturn. That’s because tithing is the open door to THE BLESSING that is going to meet your needs, bless you and keep you prosperous.

There are promises in God’s Word to tithers.

1. The devourer is rebuked for your sake (Malachi 3:11). That means he can’t touch your money, your possessions or your family.

2. The windows of heaven are open over you (Malachi 3:10). God is talking specifically to tithers in this verse. The windows of heaven are open over tithers. And God says He will pour out such a blessing, you won’t have room for it! And there’s no tag like “unless your economy is bad” or “only if the world is doing well.” Praise God, we are not subject to the times; the times are subject to us!

Tithers’ rights cover every economic situation—they put you above and not beneath the economy. No recession is going to shut the tithers’ windows of heaven—not even something as severe as the Great Depression.

The world is subject to the economy and the world’s system, but the tither has privileges.

When the devourer comes to steal your money, your seed, your job and your possessions, you have the authority to put a stop to it. So, when lack tries to come in your life, you say, “No, you don’t, lack!” If you get laid off, you say, “Lord, where’s my better job? Show me where to find a better job. I never go without. I am prosperous. I am blessed. I am a tither. The windows of heaven are open to me.”

The blessing of the tither is what puts us over financially.

2. You Are a Sower

“Isaac sowed in that land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the LORD blessed him.” –Genesis 26:12 (KJV)

Isaac reaped a hundredfold in the middle of a famine.

What is a famine?

Famine is defined as a severe shortage, extreme scarcity or serious economic downturn (sound familiar?). Many would say the United States is there now. But here is our exceedingly great and precious promise: “They will not be disgraced in hard times; even in famine they will have more than enough” (Psalm 37: 19).

That’s a promise. Even in famine, you will have more than enough. That’s why being a sower is so important. When you are a sower, supply-chain issues will not affect you. That’s because you are in a spiritual state of sowing and reaping that cannot be hindered by any world economy.

Have you ever noticed that generous sowers are never without money to give? It’s spiritual law! With whatever measure you sow, you will also reap.

David Green, founder and CEO of retail giant Hobby Lobby, tells a story in his book Giving It All Away…And Getting It Back Again, about the power of living generously.

There’s a phrase common in some Christian circles that goes, “You can’t out-give God.” I tossed that phrase around myself more than once. Then…God seemed to say to me, “Well, you haven’t really tried, have you?” 

David Green decided to increase his giving dramatically. His company significantly increased right after that. That pattern continued over and over until he reached a point at which he was giving far beyond anything he could ever imagine. The more the company has grown, the more they’ve given, and then they keep increasing. “We truly cannot seem to get ahead of Him,” David says.

Sowing is spiritual protection from economic downturns and supply-chain disruptions. It keeps money flowing to you, no matter what is going on around you. It’s why you are exempt from the current circumstances in our country.

3. You Have a Covenant of Prosperity

“And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you.” –Deuteronomy 28:2 (NKJV)

You are exempt from supply-chain shortages, inflation, economic downturns, layoffs and any other attack against your whole-life prosperity because you already have a covenant of prosperity with God.

Here’s a refresher on your covenant with God:

God made a covenant with Abraham, empowering him and his descendants with THE BLESSING—the ability to prosper and excel in everything. Finally, “through Christ Jesus, God has blessed the Gentiles with the same blessing he promised to Abraham” (see Galatians 3:14) because “if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:29, NKJV).

When you became a Christian, you became an heir to the greatest inheritance ever known.

THE BLESSING of the Lord was established by God to enforce all your covenant rights and to advance you along in life. He put THE BLESSING in place so we don’t have to toil, struggle or rely on man in any area of our lives. The world is unpredictable, at best, but THE BLESSING will provide for you even when natural circumstances are against you.It will take you from a dry place to a place of abundant rain—from shaky ground to a solid foundation. But you have to let THE BLESSING do the work.

God wants you blessed! There’s no question about it—God’s will is for His people to prosper and enjoy a life of “always having all sufficiency in all things” (2 Corinthians 9:8, KJV).

If you’re operating in Kingdom principles, no matter how high the waters rise, you will rise to the top because you have a covenant of prosperity.

4. God Is the Source of Your Supply

“Yet for us there is [only] one God, the Father, Who is the Source of all things.” –1 Corinthians 8:6 (AMPC)

When it comes to world events, you need to come into a place of a new revelation of God being your supply. He is your Source of all things.

The government is not your source. If the government is your source, you have to serve those people. God doesn’t want you dependent on the government. He wants you to be dependent only on Him. He likes to supersede natural events in getting supplies to His people.

Whatever you need, He will get it to you. He supplies all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19). That is a word for today. He will supply—not according to whenever the ship makes port. The Rick Renner translation says, “But, my God will SUPPLY your needs so completely that He will eliminate all your deficiencies. He will meet all your physical and tangible needs until you are so full, you have no more capacity to hold anything else. He will SUPPLY all your needs until you are totally filled, packed full and overflowing to the point of bursting at the seams and spilling over.”

We do not live under the dominion, rule, control or influence of the world system. Our times are subject to the authority of God’s Word, the blood of Jesus, the Name of Jesus, the power of the tithe and the harvest of our seed.

Creflo Dollar says, “El Shaddai will demonstrate provisional miracles that are contrary to natural events.”

When people say, “You know, you can’t get that right now,” whatever it is, just say to yourself, “I’ll get it.”

Jesus is our Source, and the Word is our supply.

Why is this truth so important? Because as long as we rely on natural sources, our faith in God is not in operation, which blocks Him from showering us with abundant blessings. Today and every day, God wants to meet all your needs.

5. The Camels Are Coming

“And Isaac…lifted up his eyes, and saw, and, behold, the camels were coming.” –Genesis 24:63 (KJV)

As long as you are in the will of God, He will bring provision to you one way or another. You will never be without. You might be looking at bare shelves in the store, but that isn’t God’s only way of getting things to you!

Maybe you’re used to only one or two streams of supply, like a job or another source of income, but God is not limited to those sources. In fact, He is known for bringing things to His people in unexpected ways and through unlikely streams.

That’s what happened with Isaac when his future wife arrived. He was sitting in a field and then, Genesis 24:63 (KJV) says he “lifted up his eyes…and behold the camels were coming” with Rebekah riding toward him.

And in Isaiah 60:6, the provision that came to Jesus’ parents after His birth was foretold: “Vast caravans of camels will converge on you…bringing gold and frankincense…”

Don’t have what you need right now? That’s OK. The camels are coming! And they’re loaded down with goods.

These are just a few of the reasons you are exempt from supply-chain disruptions or any other economic setback. Now, say, “The camels are coming! The camels are coming! Look as far as the eye can see. They are loaded down with unlimited supplies! I believe it. I take it. I receive it in Jesus’ Name!”

7 Vital Signs of Faith

The 7 Vital Signs of Faith


Body temperature.

Heart rate.


Respiratory rate.

When you go to the doctor, each of these vital signs is checked. They aid your doctor in determining the status of your body’s life-sustaining functions. Medical doctors use these signs to assess the general health of an individual and make adjustments where necessary to improve health, strength and longevity.

In the spirit realm, it is no different. We can check in and see how we’re doing spiritually, and make the necessary adjustments to enable us to obtain the desires of our hearts and live the best life possible through Jesus.

It’s time for a spiritual checkup! Pastor George Pearsons recently shared how you can get a clear picture of your current spiritual condition, so you can make adjustments that will develop your faith and move you on to your next victory with The 7 Vital Signs of Faith.

1. What Are You Saying?

“The words you speak come from the heart.” –Matthew 15:18

Hold the stethoscope up to your words. What are you saying?

Are you positive and expectant? Or are you expecting to get bad test results, have negative experiences at work, or get sick?

Your words are an indicator of your overall spiritual health—they come from your heart, as Matthew 15:18 says. So, if your heart is filled with faith, those are the words you’ll speak, but if there is fear, doubt, anger or sin lurking within, your words will show it.

If you want to change what’s coming out of your mouth, first change what’s in your heart. It requires a continual going in and going in and going in of the Word of God and the keeping out, keeping out and keeping out of the world. It is also a diligent practicing of the words you speak. Most of us have to overcome old habits when we’re learning to speak faith.

Take an honest inventory of your words this week. Better yet, enlist a trusted friend to listen and report back what they’re hearing in this vital sign of faith—what you are saying. Check the pulse of your faith through the words you speak, and write a prescription for change!

Something to try: Make a determined effort to speak faith, love, kindness, positivity and optimism, rather than trying not to speak doubt, fear, sickness and poverty. As you do, you’ll naturally eradicate those negative words because you’re so focused on speaking God’s truth!

To change your life by changing your words, keep in mind that you don’t get free from old habits through willpower, but through the power of the Spirit (Romans 8:13).

That’s why the devil will keep you occupied with trying to get rid of things that don’t belong in your life. He knows you can’t get rid of them by struggling in your own ability. You get rid of them by pouring in the Word that washes them out. Rather than trying to remove wrong words from your life, just pour in what’s right and flush the wrong words out of your vocabulary!

2. What Are You Thinking?

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in Your sight, O LORD.” –Psalm 19:14 (NKJV)

A lot goes on each day in that space between our ears. Thoughts flow minute by minute, day by day. But have you ever stopped and taken your faith pulse by examining what you are thinking?

Worried thoughts, fearful thoughts, angry thoughts, sinful thoughts or thoughts of self-pity are all vital readings that are cause for concern. Bitterness and unforgiveness are also the result of an uncontrolled thought life, and these things will hinder your faith. If the devil can find his way into your thought life, he will…and once he’s there, he’ll have a field day. So, what can you do to improve the health of your thoughts?

Second Corinthians 10:5 tells us to take every thought captive. That means if it doesn’t line up with the Word, it doesn’t belong in your mind. So, when you hear thoughts like, you’re not going to get healed; you’re going to die; you’ll never get promoted; how do you cast them down? Resist them. Answer them. Don’t let your thoughts go unanswered. Say, “I’m not taking that thought.”

Another part of the treatment plan for unhealthy thoughts is meditating on what is right—the Word of God. That’s how you enlarge your capacity for faith and cancel out wrong thinking. Kenneth Copeland recommends speaking the Word out loud whenever wrong thinking comes into your mind. He reminds us that as soon as we start speaking out loud, our thoughts have to stop and switch over to what we’re saying. It works!

3. How Are You Responding?

“Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord;rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, givento hospitality.” –Romans 12:10-13 (NKJV)

Let’s check your faith temperature by asking this: How are you responding?

When bad news comes, when challenges arise or agitating people come your way, what is your response? Is it in anger or is it in love? Do you have self-control, or do you lose control and give in to your emotions?

You can get to a place where no matter what is going on around you or how people are treating you, you can respond in love and compassion. Building faith on the inside of you and developing the fruit of the spirit will help you. When you first start out working on how you respond, you may get frustrated at how many times you mess up. But don’t despair! One day, something that normally would have triggered you won’t even bother you. Instead, you’ll have a supernatural response of peace, joy, love and faith. Then you can rejoice that faith is growing and maturing inside you!

4. Where Is Your Chokepoint?

“I believe! Help my unbelief!” -Mark 9:24 (ESV)

A chokepoint, as Pastor George Pearsons explains it, is how far you’re willing to believe. For example, maybe you can believe to pay off a small credit card debt, but not your whole house! Everyone has a chokepoint. Where is yours?

Pastor George encourages us to remember that “none of us should be under condemnation about where we are in faith.” He recommends that instead, we should face where we are and build from there. Identify how far your faith will go, then set a goal to develop beyond your chokepoint. And don’t forget to ask the Lord for help!

5. Are You Hopeless and Fearful About the Future?

“Perfect love casts out fear.” –1 John 4:18 (NKJV)

We’re checking the state of our spiritual lungs by asking this: Are you hopeless and fearful about the future?

If the Great Physician listened to your heart, would He hear faith or fear? Are you afraid of losing your job, never finding a spouse, catching COVID, dying young, being without enough money? Fear draws life and peace right out of you, but the breath of faith brings life, peace and joy to you.

Fear tolerated is faith contaminated. Don’t fall into the trap of thinking fear and worry are the “responsible” things to do. Fear is harmful to your mind and body, and it is known to cause people to make poor decisions. Fight fear with everything in you to keep yourself spiritually healthy, and do so by studying the love of God and focusing on showing His love to others. Before you know it, fear will be a distant memory.

6. Are You Angry, Short-Tempered or Touchy?

“The anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God.”—James 1:20 (ESV)

Anger is the outward expression of a heart that’s short on faith. It’s one of the most obvious vital signs, and it requires immediate treatment.

Perhaps, that is why there are so many warnings against it. (See Psalm 37:8; Proverbs 14:29, 29:11, 19:11; Ephesians 4:26, 31; James 1:19-20; Ecclesiastes 7:9😉

In other words, anger is a symptom of a greater problem. Pastor George says, “A short temper is an indicator that there is something wrong on the inside.” It’s a sign, he continues, “that your faith is not developed.”

If you’ve struggled with anger, condemnation isn’t the answer. Second Corinthians 7:10 says, “Godly sorrow produces repentance,” but falling into guilt and shame is not the same as godly sorrow. Acknowledge where you are, and strive to grow in faith.

That’s what Brother Copeland did years ago. He has often shared that he used to be a short-tempered person. Gloria, on the other hand, demonstrated self-control and love. He recalls how she would walk around the house quoting scriptures concerning walking in love and in that way maintained a mellow and even-temper.

“It was the temperament of Jesus coming out of her,” he says.

So, he began to mimic her. He knew who he spent time with would influence how he behaved. And over time, he gained control of his temper and grew in love.

A strong love walk is an indicator of strong faith. It is the development of controlling your flesh. Pastor George says, “There’s a control to faith. That’s what Paul was talking about in 2 Corinthians 5:14 when he said, ‘the love of Christ constrains us’ (MEV).”

Faith works by love. So, to grow in faith, study and practice walking in love.

7. What Is the Reading on Your Peace, Joy and Rest Gauge?

“The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.” –Galatians 5:22-23 (NIV)

When faith is at work, peace, joy and rest will be also. That’s because healthy faith believes before it sees. It can rest even in the storms of life with a certainty that God is the Healer, Provider, Restorer, Deliverer and Redeemer.

If you’re losing sleep at night or have lost your joy, this vital sign of faith is showing need of repair. Study the scriptures about peace, joy and resting in the Lord, start a gratitude journal and spend time worshipping and praising the Lord daily to restore the health of your faith and get you back on the road to victory.

These seven vital signs of faith are a great way to give yourself a spiritual checkup. Just as when you visit a physician, if something is a little off, you simply make some changes—whether it be diet, exercise, supplements or more rest. Feeling guilty about your physical condition won’t change it one bit! The same is true of the state of your faith. Don’t get down on yourself when something needs adjusting—just put the treatment plan to work, and get back to the work God has for you—living from victory to victory!
