God Gives You Power To Get Wealth / God Is Behind Your Increase

Posted on: April 2, 2010


“You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” (Deuteronomy 8:18)


The belief that poverty produces holiness in a person and wealth is a curse does not come from God.  These ideas are from the devil; it is the devil’s way for us to remain poor.  Even in the old times, God’s will for His people is to prosper.

“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy. I have come so they can have life. I want them to have it in the fullest possible way.” (John 10:10)

If you are a businessman, you will notice that God gives you unique ideas for your company that it may prosper.  If you are an employee, God gives you promotion and your employer notices that they are being blessed or prospered because of you.

I. God blessed Abraham

“By that time Abraham was very old. The Lord had blessed him in every way.” (Genesis 24:1)

“I am Abraham’s servant. The Lord has blessed my master greatly. He has become wealthy. The Lord has given him sheep and cattle. He has given him silver and gold. He has also given him male and female servants, and camels and donkeys.” (Genesis 24:34-35)

II. God blessed Isaac, son of Abraham

“Isaac planted crops in that land. That same year he gathered 100 times more than he planted. That was because the Lord blessed him.” (Genesis 26:12)

“Isaac became rich. His wealth continued to grow until he became very rich. He had many flocks and herds and servants.” (Genesis 26:13-14)

III. God blessed Jacob, grandson of Abraham

“In this way, Jacob became very rich. He became the owner of large flocks. He also had many male and female servants. And he had many camels and donkeys.” (Genesis 30:43)

IV. All of them were blessed not because of their obedience in the law

“Abraham and his family received a promise. God promised that Abraham would receive the world. It would not come to him because he obeyed the law. It would come because of his faith, which made him right with God.” (Romans 4:13)


Now that we are already in Christ, we became righteous because of our faith in Him.  We are seeds of Abraham as well.

“You who belong to Christ are Abraham’s seed. You will receive what God has promised” (Galatians 3:29)

“Dear friend, I know that your spiritual life is going well. I pray that you also may enjoy good health. And I pray that everything else may go well with you.” (3 John 1:2)


“So neither the one who plants counts for anything, nor the one who waters, but God who causes the growth.” (1 Corinthians 3:7)


Worldly wisdom teaches that success and prosperity is the result of our own making.  If we are diligent and hard working we will be successful.

What the world doesn’t know was that God has something to do with our success/victory.

I. Let us study the life of Ruth

A. We can learn fresh revelation from her story.

She work from morning till night to glean in the fields behind the harvesters.

B. Boaz was the owner of the field.

What Ruth doesn’t know was that Boaz secretly told his harvester to purposely drop grains for her.

“Make sure you pull out ears of grain for her and drop them so she can gather them up. Don’t tell her not to!” (Ruth 2:16)

Boaz is a picture of our Lord Jesus who greatly loves us

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink, or about your body, what you will wear. Isn’t there more to life than food and more to the body than clothing?

Look at the birds in the sky: They do not sow, or reap, or gather into barns, yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Aren’t you more valuable than they are? And which of you by worrying can add even one hour to his life? Why do you worry about clothing?

Think about how the flowers of the field grow; they do not work or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his glory was clothed like one of these! And if this is how God clothes the wild grass, which is here today and tomorrow is tossed into the fire to heat the oven, won’t he clothe you even more, you people of little faith? So then, don’t worry saying, ‘What will we eat?’ or ‘What will we drink?’ or ‘What will we wear? (Mateo 6:25-31)


Dear friends, being industrious or hard-worker will not give us good success though they are good qualities to have.  Good success from God doesn’t come with heartache.  What would you do with your great wealth when you and your family are not in good terms relationally?

The Bible says that it is God who gives good success and that is because of His great love to us. (Romans 8:32 at 2 Corinthians 8:9)

Indeed, he who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all – how will he not also, along with him, freely give us all things? (Romans 8:32)

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that although he was rich, he became poor for your sakes, so that you by his poverty could become rich. (2 Corinthians 8:9)

I want to be rich and wealth. please advice

Hi Peter… I just want to share with you this letter from Joseph Prince Ministries.

God wants to show you how you can enjoy His blessings by living in a continual flow of being in the right place at the right time when you rely completely on His unmerited favor! You see, it doesn’t matter how talented, how qualified or how smart you are – it takes God to put you in the right place at the right time!

Now , you might know someone who always seems to be in the right place at the right time. Things just seem to always work out for this person. It’s easy to look at people like this and think, “When am I going to experience such breaks?”

Friend, you don’t need to depend on coincidence or “luck”. You are a child of God, and His favor is on you! The favor of God will open doors for you that only He can open. Let me show you how!

King Solomon was the richest man who ever lived. He was the son of King David, and he loved the Lord. To date, no one has come close to being as wealthy as he was. Solomon had something to say about God’s divine favor and His right-place-right-time anointing. He shows us how it is God’s supernatural positioning, and not our self-efforts, that brings about our success. In Ecclesiastes 9:11, Solomon said:

“I returned and saw under the sun that – the race is not to the swift, nor the battle to the strong, nor bread to the wise, nor riches to men of understanding, nor favor to men of skill; but time and chance happen to them all.”

Notice what Solomon said by the Holy Spirit: “the race is not to the swift.” Now, that means that the winner of the race is not necessarily the fastest person. Solomon went to say, “nor the battle to the strong.” In other words, the one who wins the battle is not necessarily the stronger one.

Next, he said that men of understanding are not the only ones who gain riches: “nor bread to the wise, nor riches to men of understanding.” And here’s the most interesting statement: “nor favor to men of skill; but time and chance happen to them all.”

What the Word of God is telling us is that being faster, better, stronger or smarter doesn’t guarantee victory, riches or favor, because we are all subject to time and chance. However, when you rest in the finished work of Jesus, the favor of God will place you at the right place at the right time!

Those who are at the right place at the right time win the race, and enjoy favor and success! And the only one who can put you in the right place at the right time is God! Relying on your self-effort, whether by studying harder, working longer hours or desperately networking with the “right” people to better position yourself for success, can’t do what only the right positioning of God can.

God doesn’t want you to depend on your abilities or qualifications to earn His blessings, wealth, or success. He wants you to rest completely in the finished work of Jesus and His unmerited favor to experience His good success. As you begin resting in the favor of God, He will position you at the right place at the right time. He wants you to know you can enjoy this blessing every day!

The story of Ruth is a powerful illustration of how God’s favor can put you at the right place at the right time and transform your life completely. Ruth was a widow, penniless and an outsider: (She was a Moabitess, not a Jew.) Yet when she believed in and confessed the favor of God, she found herself positioned at the right place at the right time in the fields of Boaz. Boaz was one of the wealthiest men in Bethlehem and a kinsman who could and did change the direction of the rest of Ruth’s life when he married her. God’s favor put her at the right place at the right time and turned her life around completely!

My friend, this is what God wants you to know today: If you are in a difficult situation, if you need breakthrough… The favor of God can put you at the right place at the right time and turn you situation around!

Don’t focus on the negative circumstances in your life right now. As you focus on the person of Jesus and how you have the favor of God because of His finished work, like Ruth, you cannot help but end up in the right place at the right time.

Whether your heart is full of Jesus and His grace, you will find Him supernaturally leading and positioning you in every area of your life. Isn’t it wonderful to live life like this every day? Because resting in the favor and finished work of Jesus is the key to releasing the right-place-right-time blessing in your life.

Peter, hope this message helps you to walk effortlessly in God’s right-place-right-time anointing as you place your trust in our Saviour Jesus Christ.
