But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today. – Deuteronomy 8:18
Do you ever wish you could win a ton of money on a TV show, or you had a rich relative that left you tons of money when they died? Even better, wouldn’t it be great if God would just put lots of money into your checking account? Or put a ton of money in your Bible so when you open it up to read, you just pull out bill after bill? If God blessed us this way, it sure would be a lot more exciting and easier. However, today’s Bible verse tells us that God blesses us in a different way.
It tells us that God gives each of us the ability to get wealth. He puts in each of us a way that we can make money. You might be able to make money through your job, or perhaps you could start a business selling candy bars in your lunch room, or even make money on an investment or savings account.
God wants you blessed financially so that you can be a blessing to others. If you have a financial need in your life, begin to ask God to show you ways that you can produce wealth. God will show you a way that you can use things you’re good at to make money. Then be open and willing to act on what God is showing you.
