Boast In The Lord — God Is Not Just For The Poor

Do not say to yourself, ‘My power and might of my own hand have gotten me this wealth.’ But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, so that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your ancestors, as he is doing today.” Deuteronomy 8:17

There is no life without its hunger; the desire to get wealth, to be hale and health, to acquire certain levels and status in life, and many more.

It is because we are human, and it is in our nature to want more of these things, and many more.  When we are looking for them, we tend to be humble at all cost, because we know how much we desire this.

When we are poor, and looking any anything, we are so meek, gentle, and can do anything good to bring our needs to us. In fact, before God, in our prayer and supplications, we remain humble, promising God, this and that, so that He can answer us.

Of course, God is not a man that He should lie, and sure He will answer us, giving us so much, even more than we imagine, all for the sake of His name.

But what happened when we have gotten what we need? Many folks have turned their backs against God. When they were poor, they knew God, the serve Him, the pray to Him, praise Him and more, but now that they are rich, and comfortable, God is no longer require in their lives.

Does this means God is just for the poor? Or do you think He is the God of the poor?

Everything you are, whatever you have acquired in life and whatever you are going to be in life, God is in charge! It may surprise you hearing this from me, but this is the truth.

God is the God of both the rich and the poor, He does not classify.

Listen, It’s so amazing to see or hear large amount of people publicly confessing that God does not exist. They are people who are comfortable, at least able to feed three times daily, able to travel from one country to the other, and they don’t feel any shame about their declarations.

The Bible says only fools will say God does not exist (Psalm 14:1)

You don’t need God during your trying times, you don’t need Him just during your sickness, your calamities, your failure, your broken-hearted affairs or et cetera.

You need God also and more during your moment of joy, your festive periods, and when you are rich.

Yes, you were once poor, wretched, but God raises you up, giving you so durable wealth that transformed your entire life. And now, must you abandon God after you have gotten what you want?

It is pure foolishness when you push God aside in your moment of wealth. In fact, it is complete ignorance. Without God, you never had this idea of being rich. He is the one who open unlimited doors for you to get to where you are now.

If you join the rest of those ignorant ones, and declare that God is no longer useful, then you are heading for trouble. Stay on with God for He is your source of wealth. His is durable, lasting and He will protect you abundantly.

Avoid pride, flee from earthly boasting, but rather boast in the Lord by sharing your testimonies with the world. Let them know how God removes you from perverted poverty to stunning wealth. Tell them about the love of God.

The more you appreciate God for your wealth, and you acknowledge Him every second, the more blessings will come to you, for God will multiple your wealth many folds.

Please do not give way for stupidity; remember, it is God who gives you power to get wealth.

Peace!
