Seeds of Destiny SOD 30th January 2024 MESSAGE:
The life of Abraham, the father of faith in the Scripture is worth emulating.
Contentment was a major character of Abraham. He was always contented with what God gave him per time. He was one example of people who refused to take what did not belong to them despite the temptation to do so. He was positively affected by his lifestyle of financial uprightness. He refused to take money or possession un-righteously.
In Genesis Chapter Fourteen, Lot, Abraham’s nephew, who lived in Sodom, was taken captive. When Abraham heard of it, he armed his trained servants and went after Lot’s captors. He recovered all the captives of Sodom including his nephew and their possessions. Then the king of Sodom met Abraham on his return from conquering the captors and rescuing the captives and told Abraham to give him the persons but take the possessions. In reply, Abraham said:
‘ …, I have lift up mine hand unto the LORD, the most high God, the possessor of heaven and earth,
That I will not take from a thread even to a shoe latchet, and that I will not take any thing that is thine, lest thou shouldest say, I have made Abram rich:’ Genesis 14:22, 23.
Abraham made up his mind not to take what he was not given; he refused to take what was not his. That was financial uprightness and integrity.
As a result of his decision not to take what did not belong to him, God elevated him with riches beyond measure.
In Genesis 13:2, the Bible makes it clear that Abraham was very rich in cattle, in silver and in gold.
It is clear that the secret of Abraham’s wealth was that he refused to take what was not his; he refused to take what God had not given him.
You see, financial integrity leads to financial abundance; financial uprightness is the root of financial plenteousness.
REMEMBER THIS: Abraham was always contented with what God gave him per time.
- Follow the example of Abraham and decide to be financially upright.
- Be contented with what you have per time.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to maintain financial integrity so that I can access financial abundance. Help me to be contented with what You give me per time, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
