The Art of Leadership By Dag Heward-Mills
God makes people wealthy by giving them power that specifically makes them wealthy. The Bible says that it is God who gives power to get wealth. Leaders have great vision. You will need the means to realise your vision. I introduce you to the one who gives you power to get wealth!
But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for IT IS HE THAT GIVETH THEE POWER TO GET WEALTH, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
How Does God Make People Wealthy?
- God makes people wealthy by adding all things to their lives when they seek Him first.
But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.
- God makes people wealthy by breaking the curse of poverty. There are curses that make people poor. Sometimes, poverty can only be explained by a curse. Sometimes, people have everything that should make them rich and prosperous but somehow they never have enough. This should make you think of the possibility of a curse lurking around somewhere.
The curse of the law included the law of poverty and Christ has redeemed us from that curse.
Christ hath REDEEMED US FROM THE CURSE OF THE LAW, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree:
- God makes people wealthy by giving them the blessings of Abraham.
We are Abraham’s children and the blessings of Abraham are coming on the Gentiles. We who are Gentiles are looking forward to the blessings of Abraham in our lives.
And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.
THAT THE BLESSING OF ABRAHAM MIGHT COME ON THE GENTILES through Jesus Christ; that we might receive the promise of the Spirit through faith.
- God makes people rich by giving them ‘rain’ which gives the increase to all they do.
ASK YE OF THE LORD RAIN in the time of the latter rain; so the LORD shall make bright clouds, and give them showers of rain, to everyone grass in the field.
Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and HE WILL CAUSE TO COME DOWN FOR YOU THE RAIN, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month. And the floors shall be full of wheat, and the fats shall overflow with wine and oil.
- God makes people rich by giving them the grace to give.
There are people who do not have the grace to give. When God wants to make you rich He will give you the ability to give. This is what the Bible calls “the grace for giving”.
Therefore, as ye abound in every thing, in faith, and utterance, and knowledge, and in all diligence, and in your love to us, see that ye ABOUND IN THIS GRACE ALSO.
2 Corinthians 8:7
- God makes people rich by giving them the spirit of wisdom.
The anointing for wealth releases the spirit of wisdom concerning wealth creation. Wisdom is what creates wealth. Wherever you find lasting wealth you find wise people. Praying for wisdom is like praying for wealth. Wisdom has a way of making you wealthy.
Length of days is in her right hand; and in her left hand riches and honour.
Riches and honour are with me; yea, durable riches and righteousness.
Wisdom and knowledge is granted unto thee; and I will give thee riches, and wealth, and honour, such as none of the kings have had that have been before thee, neither shall there any after thee have the like.
2 Chronicles 1:12
- God makes people wealthy by giving them particular talents and skills.
Many musicians, singers, soccer players, golf players, tennis players, basketball players, boxers and athletes were given talents by God to make them rich. Many of these people may not glorify God or honour him with their talents. The Scripture below shows that God is the source of wisdom, understanding and workmanship.
And I have filled him with the spirit of God, in wisdom, and in understanding, and in knowledge, and in all manner of workmanship,
Dear Leader, remember that God makes people wealthy by making them diligent. Diligence is the greatest practical key to wealth creation. Without diligence all your theories will amount to nothing. Be relentless in your effort to be diligent!
He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.
The thoughts of THE DILIGENT TEND ONLY TO PLENTEOUSNESS; but of every one that is hasty only to want.
