Deuteronomy 8:18 (KJV) 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.


Deuteronomy 8:18 (NIV) But remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his covenant, which he swore to your ancestors, as it is today.

God has given you the power and the ability to produce wealth.  Producing wealth, how do you do it?  I believe there are four ways found in the scriptures to do that. 

One way wealth can be produced is by seed sowing, you sow a seed.  In Exodus 12, the Lord had the Israelites to sow a lamb.  Every household would get an unblemished lamb.  That was seed.  They were to kill the lamb and eat it standing on their feet and take the blood and put it on the doorpost.  So that was seed.  So, you can sow a seed and wealth can come into your hands one way or the other.

Second way wealth can be produced is God given instructions that when followed it results in supernatural provision. God told the Israelites to go borrow of the Egyptians.  They borrowed and then they left Egypt.  Of course, Pharaoh went after them and he and his army perished in the Red Sea and the Israelites came out dancing and singing on the other side of the Red Sea with the wealth of Egypt.

Third way wealth can be produced is by wisdom and we find that in 1 Kings 10 where we see wisdom of God produced wealth for Solomon.  The wisdom even caused Queen of Sheba to come from a long way to see and to ask him questions about all the wealth wisdom had produced.  King Solomon answered all the questions she asked, and it said, “there was nothing hidden from the king which he failed to explain to her.”

1 Kings 10:6-7 (KJV) And she said to the king, It was a true report that I heard in mine own land of thy acts and of thy wisdom. 7 Howbeit I believed not the words, until I came, and mine eyes had seen it: and, behold, the half was not told me: thy wisdom and prosperity exceedeth the fame which I heard.

King Solomon asked God for wisdom and the Lord told him because he asked for wisdom, he was going to give him riches and honor. 

People run after money, but they really need to run after wisdom, and we find the Bible is full of the wisdom of God and the Bible says it will come after you and over take you.

A fourth way wealth can be produced is by creating value to serve others.

2 Kings 4:1-7 (KJV) Now there cried a certain woman of the wives of the sons of the prophets unto Elisha, saying, Thy servant my husband is dead; and thou knowest that thy servant did fear the LORD: and the creditor is come to take unto him my two sons to be bondmen. 2 And Elisha said unto her, What shall I do for thee? tell me, what hast thou in the house? And she said, Thine handmaid hath not any thing in the house, save a pot of oil. 3 Then he said, Go, borrow thee vessels abroad of all thy neighbours, even empty vessels; borrow not a few. 4 And when thou art come in, thou shalt shut the door upon thee and upon thy sons, and shalt pour out into all those vessels, and thou shalt set aside that which is full. 5 So she went from him, and shut the door upon her and upon her sons, who brought the vessels to her; and she poured out. 6 And it came to pass, when the vessels were full, that she said unto her son, Bring me yet a vessel. And he said unto her, There is not a vessel more. And the oil stayed. 7 Then she came and told the man of God. And he said, Go, sell the oil, and pay thy debt, and live thou and thy children of the rest.

The thought is this is burial oil.  It was a very precious ointment.  It was the same the woman poured on the head and the feet of Jesus. So, she did what Elisha told her to do and she produced wealth.

Deuteronomy 8:18 tells us God’s plan is to give us the power to get wealth to establish His Abrahamic covenant with us.  God made a covenant with Abraham that He was going to make you rich and God is going to make you rich right now and He has a number of ways to do it.

One of the things I encourage you to do is you must understand 3 John 2.

3 John 1:2 (KJV) Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.

We must see what has to prosper first and that is your soul.  We must see that God is trying to get increase to us, but our mind won’t allow it.  The mind will not allow God’s will.  The will of God is not there.  So, we need to take scriptures like Deuteronomy 8:18 or Psalm 112:3 that wealth and riches shall be in your house or Philippians 4:19 God shall supply all your need, 1 Corinthians 3:1 all things are yours and meditate them. If you will speak those scriptures and others the Lord gives you for just one week, in the morning and at night, then your finances are going to change.  I know the problem is not God, but the problem is with the receiver. 

God is like sunlight.  The sunlight is always shining.  Now when the clouds cover the sun, the sun is still shining. So, God is pouring prosperity towards you twenty-four seven, but the clouds are out, and we need to get rid of that because that blessing should come on you.

Deuteronomy 28:1-2 (KJV) And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth: 2 And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.

Have you ever been overtaken by a blessing?  I have and it is wonderful.

I am telling you, it is time for you to be rich.  We are in Canaan and it is time for you to think and speak rich.  If you don’t like talking about being rich, then you need to change your thinking because I just gave you scriptures to back up you are rich.  I teach you rich because I want you rich and we just found from these scriptures God wants you rich.  You and I are out of the wilderness and we have come into our Canaan where you are rich.  So, meditate what I shared with you that God has given you the power to get wealth and how wealth can be produced and believe it and speak the Word of God I shared with you over your finances and see wealth be produced in your life.
