Do the Lord give wealth? 

When most people are asked whether the Lord gives wealth, the answer a lot of Christians will give is a clear YES!  The Lord gives wealth because He gives us the wisdom to get wealth, that He may establish with you, the covenant He promised Abraham. He promised to bless the seed of Abraham.

It says "And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you the power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day" - Deut 8:18:

This is a true statement, but the question is "How do you apprehend the wealth from God", how do you position yourself to receive the blessing of the Lord, which is always for as life-time?  

There are conditions for the wealth that is coming from the Lord.  It is a covenant promise, which requires among other things that you will have to be in the will of God.  This is the reason why many believers are not as rich as they ought to be. 

The wealth from God is a covenant wealth, which means you should be a covenant child of God, as Abraham was.  Covenant wealth will be used to do the will of God.  Covenant wealth is going to be used for the expansion of God work, to take the gospel to all the nations and people of the earth.  Covenant wealth will be used to assist poor and needy people as the Lord will direct.  So, we should understand that covenant wealth is God's money for kingdom work and to do His pleasure.  This is why God gives such money to men with large heart, humble and loving.  Compassionate hearts receive from God liberally, God knows their heart and what they will use the money to do.

Rules for Covenant Wealth

1. For covenant wealth to reach your hands, you need to identify where God wants you to be, and what He wants you to do.  The ability to remain where God wants you to be, for the period He wants you to remain is key to receiving the blessing.  We saw this in the case of Joseph.  He was sold into slavery, but he remained a righteous and faithful servant of God, not holding grudges, but steadfast in prayers and so God was with him...and he prospered even in the house of his master Potiphar.

This is an area many believers must watch closely.  Many people change their place of work at random, not minding whether that place is their place of destiny.  As soon as another company offers them something higher, off they go. You should remain where God wants you to be - That is what we call 'place of destiny'.

2. The Presence of God - Let your God be with you 

Another important factor that must be available for covenant wealth to enter into your hands is the presence of God.  If God is not with a child of God, he cannot proper.  I am not saying he would be a beggar, NO.  But the real prosperity would be a struggle.  Joseph prospered in Egypt because the Lord was with him Genesis 39:2.

From life experiences, you will agree with me that the rich and the poor needs prosperity.  The rich even demonstrate greater zeal for prosperity than the poor.  The rich don't just give, they will have to consider a lot of things before they decide to give.  They will consider the quality of your request and what need or value you will create with the money, they will consider your integrity level and how focused you are in life, as evidenced by your track records.  

The rich give to support a cause or to build a person up, support a viable idea and necessary to help you. For the rich man, your help is from God, not from him.  But the poor is quick to give to help people. The poor man considers the poor, the rich seem to consider wise and hard working.  When next you have opportunity to present a request to a rich man, don't ask for help...rather ask him to support what you are doing, which means you have to document the vision and its successes.  Please note that the rich Christian and a rich unbeliever are almost the same people, the difference is their heart.

3. Personal commitment
A believer who wants to succeed, move from poverty to wealth should be personally committed to excellence.  You must be diligent in business and life and committed to achieving your goals.  A struggling Christian should work harder to get out of poverty, he knows that if he folds his hands and watch, with time, he would not be able to meet his covenant obligations to God.  He would not be able to pay Tithe, offering, bless his parents and others, and such is a terrible experience.

4. Identify your place of Destiny, remain there 
Every covenant child of God should identify his place of destiny, whether it is office work - pray hard for God to show you the right employer and you stay there.  If in business, pray hard to identify the right business God wants you to do - For it is in your place of destiny that prosperity becomes easy.  Even if you are started as casual staff, or you are making losses at the beginning...remain there.

The well educated and professionally qualified knows that your degrees and professional qualifications cannot guarantee prosperity for you.  Your degree may be good, but be wise to follow covenant principles if you want to prosper.

5. Obedience 
Obedience is another factor in the prosperity equation for children of God. Let God know your plans before you start executing them, let Him approve them and let Him guide you during implementation and your life will be peaceful and successful. Do not venture into a business without seeking the counsel of God.  In 1 Samuel 2:30, God says "Those who honour Me I will honour" So, learn to submit yourself and your projects before God and He will prosper your works.

Zeal and hard work - Another factor to remember is that the Lord gives people the wisdom to get wealth, but a lot will still depend on your ability to plan, organize and run with the best of strategy.  Wisdom, zeal and money are required, which you will have to obtain and utilize wisely to reap the harvest promised.

The business you will set up will have to compete with other businesses in existence before your own and those that will open after you have established.  So, you will have to plan your business strategy like other businesses and execute the same, abiding by the principles of business success.

We are expected to use the wisdom God gave us to create solutions that will bring the reward called wealth.  Riches and wealth is a direct result of the solution we provide to the needs of people around us. The Lord gives the idea, but we have to supply the zeal, strategy and resources to execute it.

God loves to see you Prosper
God is interested in prospering you irrespective of your current level in life.  He is faithful to fulfil His promises, but you should be close to Him and faithful in your own way.  It may not necessarily depend on how well you can struggle or how connected you are,  but the grace of God and His presence with you.

He is the same God that prosper the rich and the poor man alike. So, get into His covenant and be faithful.  Find out what the covenant of wealth is saying, obey and do as the Word of God prescribed and you will see the difference.

Trust on His mercy

I believe that as you commit your business, career and projects unto Him and obey His word and instruction, praising and worshipping Him, as you pay your tithe, sowing bountifully into the work of His kingdom, your level will change from better to best in Jesus name.

Assurances of His help:
1. For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly. O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in thee.  Psalm 84:11-12
2. 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.  Deut. 8:18
3. As you pray these prayer points, God will baptize you with the power to get wealth and wealth will change hands in your life.
1. Lord, let my Jacob become Israel today.

2. Let my bald Samson begin to grow hair now, in the name of Jesus.
3. Let every evil conspirator gathering against me be disbanded by fire, in the name of Jesus.
4. Let evil vows against my future be rendered null and void, in the name of Jesus.
5. You powers that quench the fire of God in one’s life, I am not your candidate, in the name of Jesus.
6. Every deeply-rooted problem in my life, be uprooted by fire, in the name of Jesus.
7. I reject every evil domination and bondage in my life, in the name of Jesus.
8. My angel of blessings will locate me today, in the name of Jesus.
9. Lord, let my cries provoke angelic assistance today.
11. Lord, give me the name that will bless me today.
12. Let every stubborn pursuer of my life fall down and die in the name of Jesus.
13. I neutralize every power of tragedy by the blood of Jesus.
