The Blessing Of The Lord Will Make You Rich
PROVERBS 10:22 NKJ- 22 The blessing of the LORD makes one rich, And He adds no sorrow with it.
All Christians generally agree, that in Old Testament times, God prospered His people when they were obedient. But sadly, because the devil's lies have infiltrated some of the Church's teaching, many do not believe it's still God's will to prosper His people today. But the Lord does not change. He still desires His people to enjoy abundance. Any problem lies with us -- not with God.
MALACHI 3:6 NKJ - 6 "For I am the LORD, I do not change; Therefore you are not consumed, O sons of Jacob.
For us to receive and walk in God's blessing, we must walk in faith. This is the main problem why Christians today are not blessed. They simply do not believe prosperity is God's will for them. If you don't believe something is God's will, you cannot have faith to receive it.
The cure for lack of faith is feeding on God's Word, which builds you up. As long as you base your beliefs on the circumstances around you, instead of what you see in God's revealed will -- the Bible -- you will not have all that God has provided for you.
We must quit believing the lies of the devil -- no matter who says them. Whatever is contrary to God's Word in the Bible is a lie.
I am not criticizing other ministers or churches. Even Peter fell into the trap of repeating the devil's lies. We all must guard against believing the devil, and stick to what God has said.
MATTHEW 16:23 NKJ - 23 But He turned and said to Peter, "Get behind Me, Satan! You are an offense to Me, for you are not mindful of the things of God, but the things of men."
If you study the Bible you will see that God is clearly for the prosperity of His people, in both the Old and New Testaments.
2 CORINTHIANS 8:9 NKJ - 9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.
In the Bible we are warned against trusting in riches instead of God. There are verses that tell us we should not love money or serve money. But these verses should not be taken out of the context of the whole of Scripture and twisted in their meaning to steal what Jesus has provided for us -- abundant provision in every area of life.
