Changing of Hands: Three principles in obtaining the wealth you need

Are you in a place in your life where you are pulling your hair out trying to figure out how to manage your finances from day to day.If you are continually strapped financially and are sick and tired of it, God has help for you. Many, today, live on borrowed time and borrowed money. The Bible does not teach, as some propose that all debt is wicked and sinful. However, it does teach the undesirability of debt. Debt should be a last resort. God may occasionally allow it in order to teach us discipline. However, He never meant it to be a way of life.

Proverbs 13:22 says,” A good man leaves an inheritance [of moral stability and goodness] to his children's children, and the wealth of the sinner [finds its way eventually] into the hands of the righteous, for whom it was laid up”. This tells us the wealth will eventually come into our hands when we are living right. God will cause the transfer of wealth to come into the hands of His sons and daughters, from the hands of sinners.

You have to stand on the authority of Jesus Christ and declare by faith that poverty must go out of your lives. Deuteronomy 8:18 is evident that “God is the one that gives the power to get wealth.” So how do we tap into this power we already have to get wealth? Quite simple, it begins with prayer. We have to pray for the power to obtain this wealth.

I believe there are three practical principles relating to this divine prosperity. If applied correctly, they will truly manifest in our lives as it relates to our money:

I. Make Money – You have to be able to make money legally. Proverbs 10:22 “The blessing of the LORD brings wealth, without painful toil for it.” You need to pray for the wisdom of God to generate unique idea that will enable you to get this wealth.

II. Manage Money – You have to have the right perspective on how to manage money. Haggai 1:5-6 says, “Give careful thought to your ways. You have planted much, but harvested little. You eat, but never have enough. You drink, but never have your fill. You put on clothes, but are not warm. You earn wages, only to put them in a purse with holes in it.” In other words, there are some people, even if you give us $1M, $1K, $100, or even $10, we will mismanage it. If you are not a good steward and handle your monies incorrectly, you will go back into begging and borrowing.
III. Multiply Money – Learn how to multiply the wealth God has given you. It is not enough to make money, but you need to multiply it. Pray for discernment to make the right investments. I am reminded of Issac in Genesis 26:13, “And the man became great and gained more and more until he became very wealthy and distinguished”.

Are you ready to experience wealth? Pray and believe in faith God will manifest His power in you to get wealth and wealth will change into your hands.
