Key Scripture: PROVERBS 10:22; GENESIS 39:1-5
And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He Who gives you power to get wealth that He may establish His Covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” Deuteronomy 8:18(NKJV)
The Lord God Almighty has raised us as an extension and showcase of His Glory in every respect. In other words, one major evidence of our authenticity as Christians to the world is our ability to reflect His Personality (Who He is) as well as His Functionality (how He acts). One key aspect of His Functionality is His Ability to create wealth.
In our key text, the word “get” is derived from oò Hebrew word “Bara” which literally means “to create.” In other words, God gave us the power to create wealth. As we know, one cannot give what one does not have. Take the following scripture for instance: “I will open rivers in desolate heights and fountains in the midst of the valleys; I will make the wilderness a pool of water and the dry land springs of water.” (Isaiah 41:18NKJV) This is one of numerous clear pictures of God’s Ability to create something out of nothing, an oasis in the midst of the desert. As Elohim, He is the Supreme Creator Who fed the children of Israel with manna in the wilderness for 40 years for the purpose of humbling them that they may know “that man ò not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that procedes from the Mouth of the LORD.”(Deuteronomy 8:3b).
The beautiful yet humbling truth about this is that according to 2Peter 1:4, “…we have been made partakers of His Divine Nature…,” thus, He has raised us to create since He is the Creator. We have 9 ability to create wealth as true believers because “…as He is, so are we in this world.”(1John 4:17b).
Are you stuck in a financial rut? Examine yourself to be sure you have not violated any financial principles in the Bible like the Tithe, Offerings, the Firstfruit, Kingdom Investment etc. If you have, then repent and make a fresh commitment to God in that regard, cutting a financial covenant with Him. This serves as the basis of Financial Dominion whereby wealth creation becomes extremely easy. In the midst of economic recession, you can readily place a demand on Heaven’s Resources where there is no recession. All this is possible because the ò is the One, “Who teaches you to profit; Who leads you by the way you should go.”(Isaiah 48:17)
Heavenly Father, we thank You for giving us the power to create wealth. O Lord, we ask for Mercy in any area where we have touched the hallowed thing or mismanaged Your resources. Cause us to continually showcase Your Glory through wealth creation.Thank You Lord, in the Mighty Name of Jesus Christ our Lord.
I have received the power to create wealth.
I am not the poor trying to become rich but rather the rich refusing poverty.
