“You shall remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day” Deuteronomy 8:18, ESV.
Take a moment and look at your hands. Go ahead, look at your hands. In your hands lies the power to produce, to create, and to employ. Those hands of yours are empowered by God to get wealth. Maybe you’ve been looking outside of yourself for financial increase. Look within. Ask yourself, what can you do. What gifts, creative abilities, or ideas have God put in you that will help make this world a better place? How quickly we receive the power to lay hands on the sick and watch them recover. We gladly receive and walk in the ability to teach God’s Word and make disciples of all nations. We receive God’s power to cast out evil spirits and help people be free from bondage. But did you know that God’s power is creative too?
The hand of God is on your life, and He wants to bless you to create wealth, create jobs, and create an easier way to do a thing. Don’t look for what others can do for you. Don’t look for what others can make happen for you. Look for ways you can help others. What service can you provide? What need can you meet? What idea can you improve upon? God gives us an entrepreneurial spirit for a divine purpose. Receive His power to get wealth and then go and get it!
Prayer: Father God, I bless you for everything you are, and for all you have put in me. Thank you for empowering me and enriching me. I receive your power to lay hands on the sick and watch them recover. I receive your power to teach your Word and make disciples. I receive your power to cast out evil spirits and help people be free. And Lord, my God, I receive your power to get wealth. Help me put forth my hands to get what you’ve ordered for me to receive. I look within. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
