Devotion: Do not accept Poverty

39

2 Corinthians 8:9.” For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that you through his poverty might be rich.”

As the scripture above says, Jesus Christ was made poor that you may become rich. He came that you may have a rich and satisfying life.Some people associate poverty with godliness and think that the rich will not make it to heaven.

However this is just the devil’s way of keeping them in poverty by allowing them to misinterpret the Word. Don’t accept poverty, you have power to drive it out of your life.Never be deceived, nobody loves poverty. There is nothing good with poverty.

no to povertyEven them that criticize richness they can’t withstand poverty! Poverty is not appealing nor is it a form of humbleness. The patriarchs such as Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Solomon, David and so on made it to heaven but were more than billionaires in our days.

So never be deceived by associating poverty with godliness. Actually a poor man can easily sin, through envy, lying, theft and use of various evil ways in order to get out of poverty. Evil people use poor people to do evil.

I dont believe in what people call spirit of rejection.The source of many people’s rejection is poverty. Get rich and see how you will be accepted and have many friends.

Proverbs 14:20 KJV “The poor is hated even of his own neighbour: but the rich hath many friends.”

Even when you are poor and wise,your wisdom will be forgotten like this poor wise man.

Ecclesiastes 9:14-16 KJV “There was a little city, and few men within it; and there came a great king against it, and besieged it, and built great bulwarks against it: [15] Now there was found in it a poor wise man, and he by his wisdom delivered the city; yet no man remembered that same poor man.Then said I, Wisdom is better than strength: nevertheless the poor man’ wisdom is despised, and his words are not heard.”

There are several Biblical means to get out of poverty and will introduce just three of them.

The first means is through giving. This is giving with knowledge.Luke 6:38 “Give, and it will be given to you: A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be poured into your lap. For the measure you use will be the measure you receive.”

The second one is through being diligent.The word Diligent is a Hebrew word “Mahiyr”meaning Quick, Hard working and Skilled.

Prov 10:4 “The one who is lazy becomes poor, but the one who works diligently becomes wealthy. ” Work hard and be smart what you do. Deliver within the agreed deadlines and work on your talents to become skills. Through training and practice and can change talents to skills.

Pro 22:29 “Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.”

Third one is through words we speak. Words you speak can determine your destination(James3:2-5). Speak right Words. Know that Christ became poor that you should be rich. Its your inheritance hence refuse poverty with your mouth.

Confession I refuse poverty and every effect of the same. I operate in abundance because that is my inheritance in Christ Jesus. I am a seed of Abraham and all the blessings of Abraham belong to me. In Jesus Name. Amen
