What Does the Phrase, “God Gives Us the Power to Get Wealth” Mean?

God gives us wisdom for every area in our life. He guides us in marriage, parenting, church life, and even in the area of our careers. No, money is not going to drop out of the sky, but God does give us the power to get wealth. The Bible tells us, “But you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” (Deut. 8:18).

So what does this mean when God say He gives us the power to get wealth? I believe that one of the ways that He does this is in the area of ideas. I love the show Shark Tank. It is a TV show about four business men and women. They sit in a room (the shark tank) while an inventor enters and tries to sell their invention. Many cases they have a business model that they will show also. Nighty percent of the inventions are amazing. People can really come up with some great things to help us live life. I believe that this is one of the many ways in which God gives us the power to get wealth. He has placed passions on the inside of us to make this world a little better.

Remember money is not evil it is the, “love” for money that is evil (1 Tim. 6:10). We have to make money to operate in this world. You don’t have to be an inventor. You just simply need to be a problem solver. The inventor of the pencil had to figure out how to write a message without speaking. Now we have amazing books because of this. Ask God to give you wisdom. Every invention started out as a thought.

Today, take time to think about how to make life better for someone else. Keep in mind that you were made in the image of God. He is a great inventor. He created the stars, the trees, and this earth. In fact when Christ died on that Cross, He was sending a message to you saying, “You are my greatest creation!”
