Love you all, praying for you,
I just love God’s Word, it’s upside down. Which in reality is right side up if you are the one who is upside down. That’s what God’s way versus mans way really is. Right Side up verses upside down. His ways are higher than ours as high as the heavens are above the earth. (Isaiah 55:8-9) In every area of life this is true, including money. Most people chase money like the painting of the turtle chasing the carrot on the stick. They will never catch it, because it’s connected to the string and the stick of the little boy sitting on its back. Money works that way. God said, If you chase it, you’ll never catch it. You’ll never have enough. But if you pursue God He will give you all you need, when you need it. Psalms 14:7 – Oh that salvation for Israel would come out of Zion! When the LORD restores the fortunes of His people, let Jacob rejoice and Israel be glad. When the LORD restores, not if the LORD restores the fortunes of His people. The wealth of the wicked is being stored up for the righteous. Proverbs 13:22 – A good person leaves an inheritance for their children’s children, but a sinner’s wealth is stored up for the righteous. Ecclesiastes 2:26 – To the person who pleases him, God gives wisdom, knowledge and happiness, but to the sinner he gives the task of gathering and storing up wealth to hand it over to the one who pleases God. What the devil stole will be returned and seven times more. Proverbs 6:30 – People do not despise a thief if he steals to satisfy his hunger when he is starving. Yet if he is caught, he must pay sevenfold, though it costs him all the wealth of his house. What was stolen will be returned. Not only what the devil stole that was in your possession, but what would have resulted had you retained it. Some people get confused, by this ‘wealth of the wicked for the righteous stuff. They start to imagine buying whatever they want, which only reveals they won’t be the recipient God is talking about. If you want wealth to spend it on your own pleasures, that’s the thinking that made the wicked the wicked, and is why they ended up losing it. Let God’s people rejoice and be glad. He gives you feed and He gives you seed, He gives you everything you need, enough for you, and more – to share with others. Spiritual first, natural follows. Praying that you will be Israel today - the people where He rules as God, so that you can rejoice! Praying that today you will know His Plans, that you will Soak in His Word and His presence, that you will overflow with Thanksgiving, that you will proclaim the Testimony of Him and the joy that He brings when you walk in His ways for you. The way chosen, the way that is best for you, so you live in God’s abundance – which has nothing to do with what’s in your bank or your pantry, or driveway. His ways always bring a harvest - Fruit that will last. If He rules as God – all the good that He has for you – you will walk in it!
