How is your life today? Does it reflect that you are a child of God? Does it reflect the wealth of your heavenly Father? God said in Deuteronomy 28:3, “Blessed shalt thou be in the city, and blessed shalt thou be in the field.”
There is what is called a wealthy place. God wants to bring you into your own wealthy place. Once you are in such a place you will not ask yourself if you have found it. You will experience it when you are in the city and when you are in the field. It works everywhere. It works in the city and in the field. In other words, whether you are a doctor, lawyer, school teacher, minister, business person, or you have some other vocation.
Remember that yesterday we talked about leaving all for Jesus? You started coming out of the practices that God does not like. Why? God wants to take you into that place. You cannot win the world and win God’s Kingdom at the same time. One must drop. Genesis 12:1 says, “The LORD said to Abram: Leave your country, your family, and your relatives and go to the land that I will show you.” You are expected by God to leave certain practices in life. That will be your expression of faith in Him. That is what Abraham did. So forsaking certain things as you obey God will lead you to the place God destined for you.
“Thou hast caused men to ride over our heads; we went through fire and through water: But thou broughtest us out into a wealthy place.” (Psalms 66:12).
You might have gone through the fire or water, but finally the Lord is bringing you into this wonderful place in Jesus Name. That is the place of plenty. It is God’s will that you come out of the tight spot financially. We do not serve a careless God. He does not take you out of Egypt and throw you into a wilderness and then leave you there to die. The wilderness is just a pathway to your wealthy place. So do not worry about what is happening in your life now. You are just passing through. Never think the wilderness is your destiny. Never think you should die there. No, No! Fix your eyes into your wealthy place. See God taking you through. Listen to Him. Obey Him.
I believe the following verse in Psalms is a prophetic word to the Body of Christ for this hour concerning finances.
Thou shalt arise, and have mercy upon Zion: for the time to favour her, yea, the set time, is come. (Psalm 102:13). Note that Zion refers to the Church. God favors those who believe Him.
When is the time to arise? The time is now. Do not stay in the wilderness till you die. If you have not yet found your wealthy place, arise now! Ask God to show you where or what is your wealthy place. He is a faithful God. He is always true to His Word. Therefore believe Him and act according to His instructions. He will speak to you in Jesus Name!
