Topic: The Foundational Secrets For Godly Wealth
SCRIPTURE: And Abram went up out of Egypt, he, and his wife, and all that he had, and Lot with him, into the south. And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold. Genesis 13:1-2
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Until you step out of sin, you cannot step up with God.
MESSAGE: It has been established that no one knows how to make a person prosper like God. Everyone who walked with God genuinely in the scriptures prospered abundantly. For instance, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Joseph, job, David, Solomon, Daniel and Esther prospered abundantly.
Now, what were their secrets and are the foundational secrets for Godly wealth?
1. Relationship with God. Godly wealth is built on relationship with God. The quality of your relationship with God determines the quantity of your results on earth; it determines the quantity of your resources (3 John 2).
Abraham heard and obeyed God’s instructions and wealth answered to him. Everything answers to the person who answers to God.
2. Separation from iniquity and compromise. God told Abraham to go out of his father’s house (An idolatrous background)’ before He could turn Abraham into who He wanted him to be. God’s servant, Bishop David Oyedepo said, “Until you step out, you cannot step up”. So, until you step out of sin, you cannot step up with God. It is possible for a sinner to be rich but the riches have no future.
3. Obedience to Divine instructions. God said to Abraham, ‘Come out of your father’s house to a land that I will show you (Genesis 12:1-3);’ and Abraham departed immediately without consultation with anyone. Until Abraham obeyed, God did not bless him. So, obedience is the secret of abundance in God.
