Read: 1 Kings 10:14-29
“And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth” (Deuteronomy 8:18).
Our ability to create wealth comes from God and He gives in different dimensions as He pleases. King Solomon had great wisdom and people from every nation came to consult him and to hear the wisdom God had given him. “Each man brought his present: articles of silver and gold, garments, Armor, spices, horses and mules, at a set rate, year by year” (1 Kings 10:25). As he dispensed value to them, they brought him riches and his wealth increased greatly. When the queen of Sheba visited him, she was so impressed by his wisdom that she gave him one hundred and twenty talents of gold, spices in great quantity and precious stones. Bezalel the son of Uri, the son of Hur of the tribe of Judah was filled with the Spirit of God, in wisdom, in understanding, in knowledge and in all manner of workmanship to design artistic works, to work in gold, in silver, in bronze (Ex 31:2-4).
There is something of value that God has deposited inside you that you can use to create value for others such that they give you their riches in return. This is your power to get wealth. Your power to get wealth can come from a musical ability, a sporting inclination, ability to prophecy, great wisdom, leadership or organizational skills, the ability to teach, inspire or encourage. In order words, it could be a talent, natural ability, skill, or a spiritual gift.
What is it that you naturally do well? For what do you always receive commendations from others? Pay close attention, as your answers may unlock your power to get wealth. Get this power working for you by creating value for others. As you do this consistently, your wealth will increase. “Do you see any truly competent workers? They will serve kings rather than working for ordinary people” (Prov 22:29, NLT).
