01 September 2023: RELATING WITH WEALTH BIBLICALLY – Deuteronomy 8:18

Welcome to September! It is our month of the Great Shepherd at the Dream Centre. I will expound on the subject of wealth based on biblical truth this month. The subject of finances and wealth is very controversial, not because God has not spoken about it but because of the devil’s opposition to the prosperity of God’s people. The Bible speaks about money more than many other subjects. The Lord Jesus Christ spoke about wealth, finances, and money matters more than many other subjects that we focus our minds on today. Somehow, the devil has hijacked the spread of the knowledge of finances just like he got involved in the subject of sex, and those two subjects are causing tremendous problems in the world today.

The Church finds it difficult to discuss these two subjects without feeling guilty or intimidated because of the force of tradition in the land and the world. The conventional attitude towards wealth and its acquisition has become a negative force, militating against the knowledge and mastery of the truth on finances by the people of God. God’s purpose for funds, finances, and wealth has been beclouded by many other views, which are often baseless and irrelevant.

When I was praying some years ago, the Holy Spirit began to bring certain thoughts to my mind. I was personally shocked at the fact that the poverty of the Church is not caused by the devil but by Christians.

Christians largely have wrong attitudes towards wealth as a result of wrong teaching.

For example, some people feel that the subject of wealth should not be discussed on the pulpit, while others just do not like discussing it.
I believe that God will use the anointed explanations in this month’s devotional to dispel the misconceptions that Christians and the Body of Christ have espoused about finances and wealth, and believers all over the world will plunge into their Kingdom inheritance of wealth.

PRAYER: Lord, I pray that the eyes of my understanding be enlightened to see truths in Your Word about the subject of Kingdom wealth in Jesus’ name. Amen!

Job 40:1-42:17; 2 Corinthians 5:11-21; Psalm 45:1-17; Proverbs 22:14
