THE POWER TO CREATE WEALTH
THE POWER TO CREATE WEALTH
Read: 1 Kings 10:14-29
“And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth” (Deuteronomy 8:18).
Our ability to create wealth comes from God and He gives in different dimensions as He pleases. King Solomon had great wisdom and people from every nation came to consult him and to hear the wisdom God had given him. “Each man brought his present: articles of silver and gold, garments, Armor, spices, horses and mules, at a set rate, year by year” (1 Kings 10:25). As he dispensed value to them, they brought him riches and his wealth increased greatly. When the queen of Sheba visited him, she was so impressed by his wisdom that she gave him one hundred and twenty talents of gold, spices in great quantity and precious stones. Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur of the tribe of Judah was filled with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge and in all manner of workmanship to design artistic works, to work in gold, in silver, in bronze (Ex 31:2-4).
There is something of value that God has deposited inside you that you can use to create value for others such that they give you their riches in return. This is your power to get wealth. Your power to get wealth can come from a musical ability, a sporting inclination, ability to prophecy, great wisdom, leadership or organizational skills, the ability to teach, inspire or encourage. In order words, it could be a talent, natural ability, skill, or a spiritual gift.
What is it that you naturally do well? For what do you always receive commendations from others? Pay close attention, as your answers may unlock your power to get wealth. Get this power working for you by creating value for others. As you do this consistently, your wealth will increase. “Do you see any truly competent workers? They will serve kings rather than working for ordinary people”(Prov22:29,NLT).
IN HIS PRESENCE is written by Oke Chinye
Have you asked Jesus Christ to come into your heart?
He says in Mathew 11:28, “come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” He longs to give you rest.
Would you like to do so now? Here’s a prayer you can say:
Dear Jesus, I believe that You died to save me from all my sins. Today, I invite you into my heart and I accept you as my Lord and Saviour. Please forgive all my sins and help me to live my life for You.
If you prayed this prayer, send me an email at email@example.com. I would love to pray with you personally and send you a copy of my book; ‘Living the Life’ to encourage you as you begin your new life in Christ.
I look forward to hearing from you.
