Financial Freedom Principle #10: God has the power to generate wealth

We see that plainly stated in Deuteronomy 8:18. “And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth …”

In James 4:13-16, we have the situation of a person who has decided to go into a certain town, spend some time there, and make some money. As soon as he decides this, an admonition rings forth. Follow the truth in the following words. “Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to such and such a city, spend a year there, buy and sell, and make a profit”; whereas you do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we shall live and do this or that.”

Many of us work hard, work smart, and some are in charge of many people. But remember, it is God who gave you

  • Eyes to see
  • Ears to hear
  • Hands to work
  • Fingers to point the way and press a button
  • Feet to go from one place to the other
  • Legs to stand for several minutes or several hours
  • Arms to hold something or someone (especially grandchildren)
  • A brain to design, create, invent, plan, decide, and process information

No doubt in that list each of us would have one or more handicaps or limitations but the truth remains, He has the power to get wealth. Give Him praise today.
