May I ask you, is The LORD going anywhere?
No, I say, for The LORD is always right — where He has always been!
He should be in the very center of our hearts and lives!
He also says to seek Him — while He may be found!
“Seek ye The LORD while he may be found, call ye upon him while he is near:” Isaiah 55:6
God is not some kind of ‘puppet string’ we can pull as we want Him to operate in our lives.
The Gimme, (‘give-me’) Gospel Message today is what we are hearing so many times.
“He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.” Ecclesiastes 5:10
Don’t take me wrong here please!
Our Father God is amazing!! He never slumbers or sleeps. He is ever mindful of our needs and even gives us the desires of our heart.
We just have to make sure the desires of our heart plus our motives are right if we are seeking to obtain riches.
We know The Word of God says:
“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.” Luke 6:38
Also, remembering to approach The Throne of God boldly in the time of need. He always is that present help in the time of trouble.
“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find grace to help in time of need.” Hebrews 4:16
Let’s truly separate here the ‘true prosperity Gospel‘ verses, ‘dial up God‘ and ask for a new Cadillac and lots of material possessions.
Again, I believe it is all about heart motives.
No way is it wrong if our God gives you riches!
I could go there, but if you dig, you can prove many in the Word of God had riches, such as Abraham.
He gives us power to get wealth. Just one example here:
“But thou shalt remember The LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.” Deuteronomy 8:18
Still we can’t let riches consume us!
We just don’t need to strive hard for the things of the world, that are going to perish one day.
“Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten.” James 5:2
Keep our eyes and our focus on the ‘goal line’ of always pleasing The LORD.
If we have or gain riches, be a ‘good steward’ of the wealth He has entrusted you with.
I will close the way I started here.
Lets always remember the poor!
“He that oppresseth the poor reproacheth his Maker: but he that honoureth him hath mercy on the poor.” Proverbs 14:31
Don’t miss that point!
If we have riches, it should always be to further The Kingdom of God — without exception!
Let’s be a giving people from our regenerated hearts.
We need to gain Wisdom and Understanding from The LORD, of how to appropriate all our funds, surely.
God bless you always.
