Why this is the best wealth building plan.
The instructions given to us are simple.
The problem is not the instructions although it may seem that way because of how difficult it is for some of us to follow. An instruction that is hard for you to follow does not make the instruction itself hard. What is hard about it is you not being able to follow it.
If you look at great athletes, you may mistake them for super humans because of their capabilities. But what they can do, anyone can do it. What separates them from everyone is they understand it can be done. Then they do it despite the challenges.
When they run into obstacles, they do not make excuses. They seek ways to overcome so they can reach their goal.
God asks us to do some things knowing we will have challenges because of our personalities, mindset, and ways. Therefore, He says, "I'm here to help," and why He has a plan design specifically for you to accomplish what He is asking and what you need.
The challenge is us finding out our design or knowing it exist and being willing to change from who we are into who God recommends we become.
And, there are several reasons why we do not want to change, but I will list a few here:
· We do not realize how better the change is.
· It is hard to change.
· Or we do not realize change is what we need.
These are the obstacles God works with us individually to shed light on, so we can be transformed, making it important to have a personal relationship with God to personally get your personal blueprint or book of life.
We have control in changing the narratives in our lives if we follow God's instructions.
God says above all things, which means the most crucial point, is that we be prosperous and in good health (3 John 2).
Being rich or wealthy is not measured by the amount of stuff you have, but by what you are able to do.
If you have a lot of cars, houses, clothes, and toys and you are in debt, that is not wealth that poor money management. If you must work to sustain your lifestyle, then that is not rich or wealthy, that is being a slave to your situation and job.
Part of riches and wealth is doing something today that will sustain you for a lifetime which is passed down to your generation.
Why is the Bible the best wealth plan?
It includes everyone, not just self. When everyone is included, everybody eats. Meaning everyone has an opportunity to be successful too. You are sharing wealth and when you do this it is better for the economy and society.
Part of God’s wealth plan is giving. Proverbs 28:27 says, “Those who give to the poor will lack nothing...”
When you give to those who need, God remembers. Not only does He remember, but it is a celebration of remembrance to Him. It is an important act that is done that attracts God causing Him pleasure.
But it is not just giving for giving sakes. It is when you fellowship and communion with God and give from a place of love, not expecting pay back or fame (Acts 10:4).
This is where faith is needed, and this is where knowing who God is, is important. With these two, you will never again depend on what you have because you will not need to. You will understand giving to others is like giving to yourself because a generous person will prosper (Proverbs 11:25). – Excerpt From My Love Is Unconditional
It is lasting. It is a plan that weathers the storm. It will reach its end no matter the obstacles or the economy. It can adapt to changes unforeseen. One of God's abilities is to see the future. He sees the past, present, and future all at once. He is not in time like we are because He is eternal. He is out of time, He created time, and time is subject to Him. He knows the future because He created it. So, who better to get counsel from then someone who knows and is the future?
It's generational. God is faithful and keeps His promises and has loyal love for those who love Him and keep His instructions down to a thousand generations (Deuteronomy 7:9). God will ensure that your lineage will have financial advantage over others. He will give you a foolproof plan to acquire wealth that is lasting.
If you learn how to have authority over your finances, then you will never struggle or not have money. And these principles, because they come from God, will prevent you from having to compromise to obtain wealth.
Wealth gives you strength and protection, but being poor ruins you (Proverbs 10:15).
Another part of wealth building is having wisdom. With wisdom, there is riches, honor, continuing wealth, and prosperity (Proverbs 8:18). Wisdom gives you sound judgment, insight, and power (Proverbs 8:14). Wisdom gives you favor and support beyond what is usual because of God’s favor (Proverbs 8:35).
What wisdom produces is better than money, gold & silver. It gives you an inheritance and makes your funds full (Proverbs 8:19, 21).
Some of us have money but we do not have favor. You can have money and go to the court room and still get injustice. But with favor, God will change the ruling for you.
He will give you the property without a down payment. If you have favor, He will give you the job without the proper credentials.
Favor will take you where nothing else can take you.
Favor opens doors that are closed.
Favor can allow you to do more with less.
Proverbs 16:7 says, "When a man’s ways please the Lord, He even makes his enemies to be at peace with him." Money cannot buy peace.
Favor with God is favor with people. Even people will say yes to you when they have said no to everyone else.
Favor is so much more powerful than money that when people live upright the city, town, and community they live in become blessed because of their upright lifestyle. Favor is not just for self, but everybody gets blessed (Proverbs 11:10-11). When you have favor your family gets blessed.
The solution is simple, life a righteous life, then favor will do the rest.
Wealth building is tapping into or benefitting from your God-given abilities. Having skills will put you in a position to earn more money by allowing you to move up in your company. Other people will recognize your competence which will open doors of opportunity.
Blessings from the Lord brings wealth without toiling painfully for it (Proverbs 10:22). No self-effort is needed. Our role is to seek first the kingdom and all its righteousness and all things (i.e., blessings) will be added.
When you learn the principles of giving, operate in God's wisdom, live in God's favor where you are able to do things that are usual or impossible for others, and use your talents for His will, then you will build your wealth plan. And all this is found in the Bible.
The Bible has wealth of information and advice on how to handle money and build wealth. And when you reflect what the Bible teaches concerning wealth you will prosper.
