Faith is a divine equaliser among humans. By natural birth, we are not born equal. Some people were born into debt – they came into this world as debtors because their great grandfather owed money, their grandfather owed money, and their father owed money. Once you are born into this world, you are given the opportunity to begin to work to change your status. That was why God stepped in, knowing that if He didn’t add something to human beings, some people will oppress others, enslave them or take them for whatever He didn’t plan.
The only thing that is going to give you equal status with anybody is your faith in God because God is the only One that will give you the help that will put you on your two feet beside any other person. Your faith in God gives you an equal platform to receive the same privileges that the son of the President of America, the son of the Queen of England, the son of the President of Nigeria, or the son of the richest man in the world has by the wealth of his parents. Faith in God can put you on an equal platform with them if you work it well. So, with faith, you have no reason to say you are cheated in life if you learn how to work it.
When I look at poor people that don’t stay with God, I tell them they are the ones that the devil is cheating because faith in God is the divine ladder for every poor man to rise to where wealthy men are keeping them away from. For example, some sicknesses kill poor people. If a rich man has such sicknesses, he will hire an air ambulance to take him overseas. Why does he not believe in God for divine healing? What will he do when they say there is nothing that can be done? You need to understand what your faith can do for you beyond the limitations of money.
PRAYER: Father, I pray for the grace to do all the work my faith requires of me. Help me to daily fight the good fight of faith in Jesus’ name. Amen!
