Spiritual wealth principles
Let’s start by defining prosperity.
Prosperity is the ability to leave one’s present sate of life and follow the will of God, make good choices and inspire decisions that pave a road for an abundant life.
This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
There is no doubt that every Christian believer wants to do the will of the father, but most of us limits that to a certain part of our lifes…which is the spiritual but God is certainly interested in our whole life. Though then everything God has is our inheritance in Christ, but we only get those we believe are ours.
A poverty mind set.
Most of us Christians sees financial prosperity as a thing of the world and that accumulating it would make us derail from God’s eternal purpose. This is not so, although chasing money all the days of one’s life is but a curse, still staying poor is not a good representation of who God has made us.
We receive by Faith in this kingdom.. And by faith the things we know, we have. A double minded person will never receive a thing from God. We have to believe that God never wants a poor life for us… We have been blessed with all spiritual blessings, but we have to lay hold (LAMBANO).
Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, he will prosper us; therefore we his servants will arise and build
Some biblical wealth principles.
Giving to have
Do you still remember the story of Solomon, a man that gave so such that even the almighty was moved to action. He gave so much that he earned an open cheque before God.
2 Chronicles 1:7
In that night did God appear unto Solomon, and said unto him, Ask what I shall give thee
…and to remember the words of the Lord Jesus, how he said, It is more blessed to give than to receive
Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.
Wondering why that scripture didn’t say “work to have for yourself” but “to give to those that need”… Then check Acts 20:35.
Although it’s necessary to know that we don’t give to receive, we give because we are blessed.
The place of wisdom.
Ever wondered why Solomon was both rich and wise? It’s because both works hand in hand. It’s like two sides of a coin, some even says that wisdom is more valuable than gold. Solomon didn’t just accumulate knowledge, he has it arranged and have mastered the right application of it.
* Knowledge is the accumulation of facts.
* Understanding is the arrangement of facts.
* Wisdom is the application of those facts.
Knowledge is accumulated mainly by reading books, the media and researches. Another common way is by importation i.e when taught by a person of higher understanding.
Have you heard of “the five laws of gold”..from the richest man in Babylon
This books teaches quite a few wisdom in the handling of money.
How long wilt thou sleep, O sluggard? when wilt thou arise out of thy sleep?
Yet a little sleep, a little slumber, a little folding of the hands to sleep:
So shall thy poverty come as one that travelleth, and thy want as an armed man
Now let’s do a little math. Assume you sleep 8 hours of the 24 hours in a day, meaning you’ll be sleeping ⅓ one third of every day. Then God been good you lived 90 healthy years, haven’t you just spent 30 years just sleeping?
Now I ain’t saying not to sleep, but know thyself. Don’t ever sleep in your productive hours, work when you ought to work. There is always the right moment of everything, don’t procrastinate.
Pray, study, work and sleep at the right time. Plan every day the night before, make every second count. Redeem the time today and the fee future will be yours.
He that hasteth to be rich hath an evil eye, and considereth not that poverty shall come upon him.
Never expect a sudden wealth, enjoy the process, learn how to keep the wealth, apply knowledge (wisdom) and ye shall be like the tree planted by the river side.
