Psalm 17: 14 – ‘O Lord, by your hand save me from such men, from the men of this world whose reward is in this life. You still the hunger of those you cherish; their sons have plenty, and they store up wealth for their children.’
The second half of this verse points out some wonderful things that occur for God’s cherished children. One – he stills their hunger. He tends to our needs. Two – their sons have plenty. Our children are not in want. And finally three – they store up wealth for their children. God gives us so much in the way of provisions, that we have more than we need. And so, we are able to put some aside, preparing for our future generations.
God wants for us to be abundantly blessed. And then He wants this to pass on down the generations to our children and to their children. And so on! Recognise that you are a cherished child of God. He wants the best for you and He is willing to provide it!
Store Up Wealth
Our decisions can cause things to go a little off centre. This doesn’t mean that we’re always doomed to negative repercussions from making the wrong decisions. When we focus on God and His desires, then we can work to get ourselves in alignment with this.
As we do, we will find that things fall into place. We’ll have the finances we need to make an impact. We’ll make the connections that will help us to reach others. Our decisions will be wise when we seek first His counsel and guidance. Then we will be able to store up wealth – for our future generations and for those we are hoping to love and help in this life.
Financial tip – be proactive six days a week to bring in income, develop residual income and increase the value of your property; rest on the seventh day knowing you have been hard working and that God not only ordains, but insists on His people resting so they don’t burn out.
