Deuteronomy 8:18 – 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. (KJV)

Read: 2 Corinthians 9:8, Philippians 4:19

The world is witnessing challenges that have led to organisations shutting down and a rise in economic hardship. You need not panic if you are truly of God, who possesses the power to supply everything you require to prosper. This is because He owns all the riches.

God’s riches originate from immaterial things. God will not rain down money from above, rather He gives you a substance that can command wealth. This is what Deuteronomy 8:18 means when it says that God gives you the power to make wealth. Wealth is a function of a divine deposit of ideas or substance. In the case of Joseph, God gave him ideas that caused Egypt to escape famine and become a global economic power (Genesis 41:27-57).

For the indebted widow who had a last pot of oil to feed in 2 Kings 4:1-7, the source of her financial breakthrough was the prophet’s instruction on how to use her substance. Elisha told her to borrow extra containers and fill them to the brim with the little oil. The woman obeyed and sold them to clear her debts. She moved from the level of a debtor to that of an oil merchant.

Beloved, what are you passing through that makes you contemplate the future? Hold on in prayer and be sensitive. The Holy Spirit can empower you with the knowledge and power to maximise opportunities. He could also open your eyes to how you can profit from what you already possess but is lying unused. Don’t underestimate God’s ability in your life. Work diligently, play your part to pay your tithe and offering and see how God will turn things around for you.


Hymn: Showers of Blessing – Daniel W. Whittle (1883)

1. Holy Ghost, baptise me with spiritual gifts, visions, and business strategies that I need to be a solution in my generation.


1. Father, open my eyes to new opportunities that will prosper my life.

2. The powers behind my parent’s mistakes and failures, pursuing my life, expire!

3. Clusters of failure, harassing my children, the Church, and my life, scatter!
