Power to get wealth
Deut 8:17 And thou say in thine heart, My power and the might of mine hand hath gotten me this wealth.
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.
Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
Money with a Mission. Power to get wealth is the promise. Yet, like many of the promises of God it comes wrapped in conditions designed to protect us from even ourselves. We are to glorify God as He brings us money, recognizing He is the one who created us and who gave us the strength and skill to accumulate wealth for a purpose. What is the purpose? To establish His covenant in the earth. God and sons Inc. He has a business in the earth; the redemption business. Reaching people with the gospel, making them disciples, and sending them out to tell others. The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness therof. No matter how much real estate you accumulate, or how much equity you create, you are only a steward of that wealth. God’s desire is to prosper you, so that you can help fund His business. Some would say that’s Old Testament pastor. Nope. He still gives power, the power of the Holy Ghost, to do what? To be His witnesses to the uttermost parts of the earth. What does a witness do? Tells about Jesus. What happens to those who call upon the name of the Lord? They become born-again, establishing His covenant in the earth, through the blood of Jesus. Think about this:
Acts 16:16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:
If a woman operating under the power of an evil spirit can bring much financial gain to her masters, how much more a blood bought child of God operating under the power of the Holy Spirit of Almighty God.
Even if we ‘own’ land here, we are only renters in the earth before God, because He owns everything. Paying our tithes at a good Bible believing church that is evangelizing and raising up people in the Word of God and their destiny is establishing God’s covenant in the earth. As you give today, know that you qualify for this promise. Let’s believe God for more of the Holy Spirit today, and His power to get wealth.
Want to get wealthy more quickly? Share the gospel with someone today, tell them about Jesus and get them adopted into the kingdom of God. You will find several things happening: 1. It’s fun, there is joy in it, because one third of the kingdom of God is joy! 2. There’s power in it, because it takes the power of God to translate someone out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light. 3. There is money in it. You are fulfilling your part of the money with a mission message, and actively establishing His kingdom in the lives of others. He will do His part, and give you power and finances to get the great commission done. Truly, he that wins souls, is wise!
‘Father, I ask you today, for the power of the Holy Spirit to extend and expand Your kingdom. I believe you will set before me today, opportunities to lovingly share Jesus with people, today. As You do, and I share the gospel with them, I believe You will release prosperity and blessing upon me and my house. I ask, knowing I am heard and answered, for I ask in Your name Lord Jesus, Amen’
