Have you thought about what life would be like if you obtained riches and honor? Would you buy that big house you always dreamed about living in? Would you buy that one of a kind special designed car that you want to drive? Would you help the poor and the needy?
These are valid questions since these next 10 years have been declared as the years that God is going to transfer the wealth of the wicked to the righteous. This will be done in order for God to establish His kingdom on earth and to get the glory that is due Him.
So you may be saying, why do I need strength for both riches and honor? Well have you gotten a lump sum of money in the past and instead of tithing 10 percent and blessing the poor and needy with another 5 percent, you decided to splurge on clothes, food and lavish vacations? This is why, we are living in the last days and we need to be kingdom minded with ou finances. The gospel has gotten to be preached throughout the world before Jesus returns. Of course, this requires money.
So when you get the wealth that God has already predestined for you to have, take time out to hear from God so that you can know what it is He would have you to do.
Here is the scripture that sparked this thought process:
Take 60 seconds and meditate on the following scripture pertaining to the giver of strength for both riches and honor:
I Chronicles 29:12
Both riches and honour come of thee, and thou reignest over all; and in thine hand is power and might; and in thine hand it is to make great and to give strength unto all. King James Version
Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt nd give strength to all. New International Version
Riches and honor come from you alone, and you are the Ruler of all mankind; your hand controls power and might and it is at your discretion that men are made great and given strength. The Living Bible
Write a prayer to the hand of Him who strengthens based on the memorized verse:
Thank you Jesus for choosing to bless me with riches and honor. I pray that I will be grateful enough to be a blessing to others and bring honor and glory to you name because of how you blessed me.
Write down what God's will is for you as the one who strengthens based on the memorized verse:
God wants me to be mindful of his kingdom agenda and have the strength to do his good and perfect will once I am blessed with riches and honor.
Write down what God wants you to go and do based on His strength to reap the harvest:
God wants me to have compassion on those who don't know Jesus as Lord and Saviour and the provider of riches and honor so that they will want to get to know Him as their Lord and provider.
In conclusion, it sounds good to say what we will do if we obtain a certain level of riches but it is a totally different thing when it really actually manifest. Continue to believe God for your inheritance and seek Him for strength to do the right thing when you receive it.
