Where to locate funds to fulfill your dreams and God’s plan for your life
Proverbs 8:12 – I, wisdom, dwell with prudence, And find out knowledge and discretion.
Haggai 2:8 – ‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts.
Ideas and concepts are the building blocks of a great life. God gave Jacob an idea on animal reproduction, the idea made him prosperous. Joseph understood the dreams of the Pharaoh and interpreted it and he became the first prime minister in the history of the human race. Jesus gave Peter an idea and he caught a fish with money in its mouth. Everyone has an idea but only great and significant ideas bring prosperity. I pray for divine inspiration and ideas for you in Jesus’ precious name.
Proverbs 14:23 – In all labor there is profit, But idle chatter leads only to poverty.
The Bible instructs that he does not work must not eat. There is dignity in labour. When you work you give God the opportunity to have something to multiply for you. Jesus said ‘I must work the works of him that sent me. He also said my Father works hitherto.’ The Bible instructs us that there is profit in labour. So be encouraged to work and your work will be rewarded.
You and your abilities
For the kingdom of heaven is like a man travelling to a far country, who called his own servants and delivered his goods to them. And to one he gave five talents, to another two, and to another one, to each according to his own ability; and immediately he went on a journey.
2 Chronicles 2:8, 13-15
Also send me cedar and cypress and algum logs from Lebanon, for I know that your servants have skill to cut timber in Lebanon.
And now I have sent a skillful man, endowed with understanding, Hiram my master craftsman (the son of a woman of the daughters of Dan, and his father was a man of Tyre), skilled to work in gold and silver, bronze and iron, stone and wood, purple and blue, fine linen and crimson, and to make any engraving and to accomplish any plan which may be given to him, with your skillful men and with the skillful men of my lord David your father. Now therefore, the wheat, the barley, the oil, and the wine, which my lord has spoken of, let him send to his servants.
Find your niche and capitalise on it. God has endowed every one of us with divine abilities. Locate that ability, value it and develop it as best as you can and God will reward your effort.
And they said to Him, “We have here only five loaves and two fish.”
He said, “Bring them here to me.” Then He commanded the multitudes to sit down on the grass. And He took the five loaves and the two fish, and looking up to heaven, He blessed and broke and gave the loaves to the disciples; and the disciples gave to the multitudes. So they all ate and were filled, and they took up twelve baskets full of the fragments that remained.
One sure way to poverty is waste and poor management of what you currently have. Jesus hated waste and so should you. If you properly manage what you have you will add to it and multiply. Good management comes partly form good decision making. Remember, if your outgoings are more than your income, then your upkeep becomes your downfall.
Personal declaration for the day
Lord in my quest to locate resources to achieve my goals, I come to you for help and divine direction. I seek out and connect with people that will enable me and bring the best out of me. And Lord I receive the grace to be a problem solver for the people around me in Jesus’ mighty name.
