Served by Wealth!
Deuteronomy 8:18; Malachi 3:10.
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.”
Wealth is meant to serve you. As a child of the Most High God, the Possessor of heaven and earth, you are not meant to live from hand to mouth, for your Father God owns all the wealth both in heaven and on earth. Apostle Paul calls this wealth ‘the riches of His glory’. When God’s glory appears, silver and gold, money, always comes with it. God said in Haggai 2:7-8, “……The silver is mine, and the gold is mine…” The cattle upon a thousand hills are the Lords (Psalms 50:10). The whole earth belongs to God. Psalms 24:1 says, “The earth is the LORD’S, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.” God owns it all and He has invited you to be a manager of His resources on earth. With God, there is no limit to the resources at His disposal, and no challenge of ability to bless you. But the question is, how much capacity have you built to handle Kingdom wealth? God wants to put money in your hands, but remember, Kingdom wealth is for Kingdom expansion. So, He puts a little in your hands, to prove you, if you will still give heed and listen to the Holy Spirit. For some, once a little amount of money comes into their hands, they begin to make their own plans without remembering God, who gave them the power to get wealth. For some who have not caught this revelation of God as the giver of increase, they might ascribe it to their natural effort, and so are not rich towards God, thereby not activating covenant kingdom forces such as tithing, giving offerings, partnering with the preaching of the gospel, sowing seeds, and giving to the poor, that make for wealth and exponential increase.
In Malachi 3:10, God says “Bring ye all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be meat in mine house, and prove me now herewith, saith the LORD of hosts, if I will not open you the windows of heaven, and pour you out a blessing, that there shall not be room enough to receive it.” Many people want meat in their own house, while refusing to bring meat into God’s house and God says no, that is not the order. Trust me by bringing your tithe and see if I won’t open to you the windows of heaven. What an exchange! You bring the first tenth of your income to your High Priest and in exchange, God opens the windows of heaven and pours you out a blessing. Amazing! Beloved, faith is the connector; when you give to God in faith, trusting Him absolutely that all you have, came from Him, He will open doors for you and increase you beyond your wildest imagination. For the man who is rich towards God, increase is assured.
MY SOLID FRONT (YOUR CONFESSION): In the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I declare that I am a giver and not a taker; I am blessed, and I am a blessing to my world. I was born by God to be served by wealth that I might serve the purpose of God!
Further Meditation: Psalms 112:3; Deuteronomy 8:10-17.
