So I’ve been reading Poverty, Riches & Wealth by Kris Vallotton (affiliate link) and it’s been a great tool in helping me put some of my own thoughts around abundance together and also journal through some things around wealth. I have also been doing daily Facebook lives on my page sharing quick insights and I wanted to share 3 of them with you especially if you are a Christian looking to upgrade your Abundance Mindset.
Shift #1 – RICHES AREN’T THE SAME AS WEALTH.
Kris Vallotton makes a distinction off the bat about money vs wealth, in his eyes, wealth is much fuller and wholistic an idea than money. What I personally love about this distinction is that wealth has a lot more to do with abundance than it does about money and I can definitely get on this train.
As a Christian, we have been indoctrinated into seeing money as evil in itself which means that things connected to it such as success and wealth also cause unease. Shifting the focus from money which is finite to wealth is powerful in itself but what is even more so is making the shift into abundance, this leads me to a question for you to reflect upon:
Would you rather be rich, wealthy or abounding/abundant? Why?
Shift #2 – WEALTH ISN’T A THING OUT THERE.
Wealth comes and starts from within which is something taught by one of my favourite mentors and also God’s Word, a great scripture that reflects this is Luke 17:21:
“Neither shall they say, Lo here! or, lo there! for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.” (KJV)
I’ve shared my story of how God began to heal me of a rare autoimmune condition, after trying to do #allthethings by myself and in my own power and then running around and finding someone who could heal me, God led me to turn inwards. It was then that I realised that I was simply manifesting what was already inside of me so I began to change and then I began to see the fruit of that change in my body and my life.
When we realise that wealth and abundance are so much more than money and that it starts from the inside out, it gives us an opportunity to be rich in all the areas of our life where there is deficiency and lack.
Q. Do you look for things outside you to change or are you willing to change first to affect abiding change on the outside?
Shift #3 – ABUNDANCE BY IT’S NATURE DOESN’T RUN OUT
That’s a Powerful one!!!
The key message I want to share here is that YHWH (I AM) is infinite, not finite – we draw from an infinite source that never runs out, dries up or needs replenishing. How awesome is that?
What we believe and focus on creates our reality, therefore really believing that God is infinite and that He supplies all our needs according to His riches and glory in Christ will ultimately change the reality that we create for ourselves.
How might things change for us if we spent five minutes a day meditating on this truth? What would we think differently, how would this impact our decision making and actions?

As I mentioned I am sharing insights over on my page every day Monday to Friday, I would love for you to join me as I dig deeper into abundance mindset, manifestation from a Biblical perspective and possibility thinking.
