Deuteronomy 8:18 But you shall remember the LORD your God: for it is he that gives you power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he swore unto your fathers, as it is this day.

Some of us are so obsessed with “getting money.” We spend the vast majority of our day thinking about what money can do for us. With our dreams and goals in mind, a lot of us try to fulfill those dreams by working extra hours, extra jobs, and risky investments. Some of us even resort to get rich quick schemes, illegal activity, and the luck of lottery for riches because we see no other way.

What a lot of us don’t realize is it is God Who gives us the ability to get wealth. When we focus on God and His plan for our lives and our community, the wealth we’re seeking will find us. It still requires some effort from us, but the wealth will be attached to our purpose. This wealth is not for selfish reasons but, for Kingdom use. When we’re truly sold out for God and seeking Him, we’ll be more excited by what this wealth can do for His Kingdom over what the wealth can do for our desires.

Stop looking at other avenues trying to get rich quick. Let’s turn our attention to God because it’s His power that gets us wealth.
