“And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth . . .” (Deuteronomy 8:18, NKJV)
Yesterday I shared this verse with you, reminding you when you are blessed and prosperous you are not to forget God for it is He who brought you, is keeping you and will bless you to be a blessing. We are to “remember the Lord.” Today I would like to encourage you from this same verse to seek and pray for the “power to get wealth.”
To many of us are letting life pass us by waiting for blessings and prosperity to fall from the sky. Every week people all over America line up at gas stations and grocery stores hoping to “get rich quick” from some lottery number. Yet, the word of God clearly tells us where our wealth comes from. It is God who gives us the “power to get wealth.”
The power to get wealth is the wisdom, the knowledge, the resources, the connections and strength to become prosperous. God is not raining down money from heaven. He gives us the “power” to become wealthy. We have to pray for the wisdom to know how to use what He has already given to become prosperous.
Pray today that God will show you your “power.” It might be using a talent you have, writing a book or simply pursuing your passion and purpose. All of these are divinely given for you to be blessed and to be a blessing. Pray for it, and seek after it. For it is God who gives you THE POWER TO GET WEALTH.
