THEME: The Power to Get Wealth
SCRIPTURE: Deuteronomy 8:18 “But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
There are abundant blessings in the Kingdom of God. It, therefore, means that it is a wise decision to seek His Kingdom in perfect obedience to the word of God (Matthew 6:33).
Deuteronomy 8:18 says: “But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day”.
Many people think that a life of holiness is one of poverty. This is a lie of the devil and unfortunately, he has succeeded in making many people believe that unless they serve him, they cannot be successful in life.
Interestingly, he also tried to deceive the Lord Jesus Christ with this same lie, but the Lord defeated him (Luke 4:5-7).
2 Corinthians 8:9 says: “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes, he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.”
Beloved, there are abundant blessings in our Lord Jesus Christ – I am a living testimony of this.
For example, before I gave my life to Christ, I used to borrow money from my own driver to fuel my car two weeks into the new month.
It was after I gave my life to Christ that I began to know the true meaning of prosperity. The Psalmist says that unless the Lord builds the house, the builders only labour in vain (Psalms 127:1).
Apostle Paul corroborates this in 1 Corinthians 3:6-7 by saying I have planted, Apollos watered; but God gave the increase. So then neither is he that planteth anything, neither he that watereth; but God that giveth the increase.
One of my children-in-the-Lord trusted in his ability to work hard so he made a habit of always working overtime. However, he still could not make ends meet in spite of being a child of God.
His situation later changed positively when he realised that God has to bless the work of our hands for us to be truly successful.
It is only God who blesses without adding sorrow (Proverbs 10:22). Seek Him genuinely today and He will give you the power to get wealth with no sorrow in it.
Open Heavens 22 October 2022 Prayer Points:
Thank You, Lord, for giving me the power to get wealth. I declare that I am blessed of the Lord, in Jesus name.
