Daily Read – Deuteronomy 7:1-8:20; Luke 7:36-8:3; Psalm 69:1-18; Proverbs 12:1
"And you shall remember the Lord your God,
for it is He who gives you power to get wealth,
that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.
The word wealth in this verse is quite interesting and the Hebrew definition brings tremendous light to its original meaning. It comes from the Hebrew word chayil
and means a force, whether of men, means, or other resources; an army, riches, virtue, valor, strength, ability, and efficiency.
It is clear, when the Lord talks about wealth in this particular context, He refers to much more than riches and finances, though these are definitely included. He always exceeds our imaginations and expectations for He is limitless. There is no word in the English language big enough to define or contain God; He is too big!
This verse promises believers an active role in the establishment of God's covenant on earth. He equips and empowers each with everything needed to get wealth; thereby, taking the Kingdom by force.
The Lord strategically positions believers in places of influence, and spares nothing in any area to insure the Kingdom comes and is recognized and felt by those in this world.
He provides everything needed to accomplish His plans and purposes in and through us. If a situation calls for an army of angels to dispatch from heaven, it only takes one nod from the Almighty and they show on the scene. When needed, we can expect the ability and efficiency to do our jobs to pour into us from Father's hands. When facing dire circumstances, we can count on His strength and valor to infuse us igniting our faith.
Recognize that whatever we do or wherever we go, our lives exude the Kingdom and He gives us the empowerment, ability, and equipping to establish His Kingdom come!
At work....His Kingdom come!
At play....His Kingdom come!
At church...His Kingdom come!
At the store....His Kingdom come!
Wherever we go....His Kingdom come!
