Ever since the beginning of time and all throughout the Bible, God gives us a clear indication of His thoughts and His intent to purposely bless us in ways that are totally unimaginable. It is part of His blueprint for our success and a snippet of the abundant life total package that He has promised to us through His Son Jesus Christ. As a Christian, herein lies the key to your wealth and abundance. It is not achieved through world systems, it is not from the 9-5 pay cheque, nor does it come from the power ball winning lotto ticket. It is through placing ALL your trust and faith in God.
Abraham’s servant, while he made a thankful acknowledgement of the good success he had met with his master (Abraham), he was careful to give full credit to God as the one from whom Abraham’s blessings, his wealth and his good estate had come from.
Likewise when God brought the children of Israel out of their wilderness experience, He blessed them and the land in which He brought them, He gave them the power to get wealth – from creative ideas to winning strategies, cutting edge technologies, a niche’ in the market, money management strategies, principles for wise spending and collective ideas for multiplication and increase for financial success. The truth be told, nothing is impossible with God! In need of the doctor’s check up? Then check also Money Matters BVI article “Financial Check Up!”
Now here comes my question/s though:
Since it is God who gives the power to get wealth, why do we have this growing notion among many that because someone is a Christian that being rich is such an evil thing?
Where do people get the idea that being a Christian somehow means that you more fit the status quo if as a Christian you are poor, broke, busted and disgusted all the days of your life?
Then we hear labels such as ‘mega church,’ ‘mega preacher’ and ‘prosperity gospel’ being placed on the church and/or by association, somehow it is perceived that one is less of a Christian than the other without those labels. But who makes one a judge over them that as a child of God they must somehow silently retreat into wearing the worst, drive the worst or live in the worst building while the world enjoys the best, wear the best, drive the best and live in the best of what our heavenly Father has to offer? God’s ability is NOT limited by man’s understanding!
Notwithstanding those beliefs however, my emphasis and the message I wish for you to leave with is that God gives to us His children the POWER to get and to ACCESS wealth and for us to increase in substance. God wants the best for us. He wants us to be happy, healthy and wealth (body, soul, and spirit) His word to us, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” (3 John 2)
To reap a harvest you and I must be willing to sow. To get more, it means give more! It is just that simple as it is more blessed to give than to receive. According to Money Matters, one of the most effective ways for you to realize what value money really have is to give it away.
Observe God’s law of tithing. Bring into His storehouse and honor Him with your substance and the first fruit of all thine increase. Prove God on how He will keep your barn full and overflowing. (Proverbs 3:9-10) The Bible says that Isaac sowed into the land, and received in the same year an hundredfold: and the Lord blessed him. (Genesis 26:12)
Finally, it is by an unshakable, immovable FAITH that we must prove God to keep His own word to destroy the devourer for your sake (Malachi 3:10-11)
Be blessed! Be encouraged! Be empowered and thank you for being a part of EMoments!
