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 us the power and the ability to produce wealth.  So, how do we produce wealth?  There are three distinct ways shown in the scriptures to produce wealth.  One-way wealth can be produced is by seed sowing.

In Exodus 12 God had every household in Israel to sow a lamb out of their herd and that was seed.  He told them to kill the lamb and eat it.  He said take the blood of the lamb and put it over the doorpost.  That was seed.  After that God told them to go and borrow from the Egyptians and they went and borrowed and then they left Egypt with the spoil of Egypt and Pharaoh came after them and he and his army were drowned in the sea and the children of Israel came out singing and dancing on the other side.  So, you can sow a seed and wealth can come into your hands one way or the other.

Also, you can get wealth by wisdom as we see in 1 Kings 10 with Solomon’s wisdom.  That wisdom drew the Queen of Sheba to see the wisdom and the wealth of Solomon’s kingdom.  She came to ask Solomon questions and they were concerning her government.  Solomon answered all the questions she asked.

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.

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

Many people are running after money, but they need to be running after wisdom.  They need to get in the Bible that is full of the wisdom of God and they will see money come after them and overtake them.

Another way to get wealth in your life is creating value to serve others.

2 Kings 4:1-6 (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.

The type of oil was burial oil and very precious ointment and it was the same the woman poured on the head and feet of Jesus.

2 Kings 4:7 (KJV) 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.

So, the woman did what Elisha told her to do.  Notice she was producing wealth.

Again, the scripture tells us the plan of God for His people in Deuteronomy 8:18, was He would give us the power to get wealth and thereby established His Covenant He made with Abraham that He was going to make you rich and He is trying to do that right now.

Keep in mind God has a number of ways that He can really increase your finances and I really encourage you to 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 have to understand that first we have to prosper in our soul.  A lot of times God is trying to get things to us, but our mind will not allow it.  The will of God is not there. So, what you have to do is take scriptures like Deuteronomy 8:18 or Psalm 12:3, “wealth and riches shall be in my house”, or Philippians 4:19, “my God shall supply all of my need”, 1 Corinthians 3:21, “all things are mine.”  If you will speak those scriptures for one week, in the morning and at night, your finances will change.

I know the problem with financial increase is not God, but the problem is with the receiver.  God is like sunlight that is ever shining.  Even when the clouds are over the sun, the sun is still out and shining.  So, God is pouring prosperity to you twenty-four seven; but the clouds are out and what we need to do is get rid of that because that Blessing should come on you.

He told us in Deuteronomy 28:1,2,

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 has so glorious.

So, it is time for you to be rich.  I’ll say it again; it is time for you to be rich.  We are in Canaan and we will talk like we are in Canaan the land of promise of riches and we are going to talk rich talk.  I want you to be rich and that’s why I teach this.  You and I are out of the wilderness and we have come into Canaan.  So, get yourself ready for The Blessing and wealth and riches God has promised and given you the power to get.
