God has ways of prospering His people.  God has a will, God has a way and a why to prosper His people.  One of the reasons why God prospers His people is because we are going to build the house of God and establish God’s Kingdom on the earth, and so God has ways to prosper His people.

Psalm 122:9 (NIV) For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek your prosperity.

1 Chronicles 22:14 (KJV) Now, behold, in my trouble I have prepared for the house of the LORD an hundred thousand talents of gold, and a thousand thousand talents of silver; and of brass and iron without weight; for it is in abundance: timber also and stone have I prepared; and thou mayest add thereto.

The psalmist is saying go after prosperity to build the house of the Lord.  If you want a good reason to be rich, we found it right there. As the psalmist, we should seek prosperity to build the house of the Lord.  King David thought so much about the building of the house of the Lord, he prepared wealth to give and he did that by getting wealth mainly through battle. We know in the New Testament it says, “Whose house we are.”  In the Old Testament the house of the Lord is a formal brick and mortar house and in the New Testament it is people.  We get rich so we can go after more people.

Psalm 35:27 (AMP) Let those who favor my righteous cause and have pleasure in my uprightness shout for joy and be glad and say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, Who takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.

God has a way of prospering His people.  God has a will, God has a way and a why.  One of the reasons why is because we are going to build the house of God. One of the main ways He does it is through sowing or giving which, we read in the Word of God, Luke 6:38.  The Word of God is the platform for all increase in the Kingdom of God.

Luke 6:38 (KJV) Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom.

You give and it is given to you good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over and receive new ideas and witty inventions, receive favor with God and man and believe you receive the wisdom of God.  That’s spiritual law and covenant with the Lord and you can expect it.

Also, the Word of God may cause you to create wealth. 2 Kings 4 reminds us the woman cried to the man of God and he asked what she had in her house and she replied she only had a pot of oil.  He told her to go borrow vessels, come back in, shut the door upon you and your sons and begin to pour.  She did and the Bible said the oil kept flowing until she ran out of vessels.  She went back to the man of God and asked what she should do now.  He told her to go sell the oil, pay the debt and live you and your children on the rest. 

I ask you, what do you have in your house?  In other words, what is the gift that God gave you that God can empower that gift and create wealth and bring it into your house? God gives you a gift and if you work with that gift and let God empower that gift, it will make room for you and bring you before great men.

Another way to get wealth for you is through the wisdom of God found in 1 Kings 10:1,

1 Kings 10:1-2 (KJV) And when the queen of Sheba heard of the fame of Solomon concerning the name of the LORD, she came to prove him with hard questions. 2 And she came to Jerusalem with a very great train, with camels that bare spices, and very much gold, and precious stones: and when she was come to Solomon, she communed with him of all that was in her heart.

Now this is wisdom and it created all kind of wealth for King Solomon.  The Bible tells us “a greater one than Solomon is here”, and we are the body of Christ in the earth and we have the mind of Christ and we have the wisdom of God in all things if we ask for it.

Remember Joshua came with wisdom to Pharaoh how he could avoid the famine and he took that wisdom and Pharaoh got rich.  Pharaoh had a lot of political power but not a lot of money; but with Joseph’s wisdom applied he had the money and the political power. 

God will give you wisdom.  Wealth follows wisdom.  If you lack wisdom, then all you have to do is ask for wisdom and He will give it to you liberally.

Psalm 122:9 (NIV) For the sake of the house of the Lord our God, I will seek your prosperity.

So, the first reason we should want to get rich is for the Kingdom reason which is to bring people into the Kingdom of God and establish God’s Kingdom throughout the earth.  If we take care of God’s house, we can be assured our house will be taken care of with all certainty.

Lord, I ask for manifestation of all the harvest of all this child of God has sown in your Kingdom and their future giving and they continue to have your discern of the seed to sow and the way the harvests are coming to them because it is hidden for them to discern so the enemy cannot keep it from them.  I ask for their gift to increase so they are brought before great mean who bless them with wealth and also, I ask for the wisdom of God as you gave Solomon and also Joseph.  Lord, I pray they will seek to build your house and their prosperity is built up in their house and they have a greater testimony of your faithfulness to them in Jesus all powerful Name.  Amen.
