I do not know about you, but there are many Christians who are in need of financial miracles right now. God is able and willing to give you as much money as you need to supply all of your needs, as well as to give you enough to do His work on the earth, and help others in need as well.
To those giving into his ministry, Paul the apostle promised, "And my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19
Now we have to understand what riches God possesses. In the second chapter of Haggai, we read, "All the silver, and all the gold is mine, says the Lord." The Bible also says numerous times that "the earth is the Lord's and everything in it!"
Who does He delight in giving it to? The righteous! He loves to give it to obedient Christians who are not just always "doing their own thing,” but are in love with Jesus, and interested in doing His will.
Proverbs 13:22 says that “the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just.” This means that God is interested in transferring His gold and His silver from the hands of sinners into the hands of His people!
But God has a condition connected to His glorious promises. We as believers must simply meet His condition and then the promise will be ours.
It is not enough for you to say that you are a Christian. You cannot just say that you believe. You must show the Lord that you believe by your obedience to His word. Then mighty miracles will begin to happen in your life as you act upon His Word. God does not bless sinful, greedy people. He blesses those who fear Him, and delight in His ways! Let’s look at what Galatians 6:7:
“Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that He will also reap!”
Do you need a great financial harvest in your life? Then you must sow some great financial seed, and live in obedience to His commandments. If you want a small financial miracle, just give a little bit. If you really want to see God bless your finances, start giving until it “hurts.” I have had people who I had never met in my life give me huge checks because God told them too.
But it was after I began to give generously and bountifully. Let’s look at what Paul teaches the Corinthian Church concerning giving and receiving/sowing and reaping:
“But this I say: he who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let everyone give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver! and God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.”
Now that is powerful! And that is what happens when you become a “philanthropist for the Holy Spirit.” Seek God. Obey God. If you have broken His commandments, repent, and ask Jesus to forgive you and fill you fresh with the Holy Spirit. Then begin to obey God and do what He says is right. Study the Bible daily to find out what He requires, and the glorious promises and blessings He has for those who meet His requirements.
You shall remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth, that he may confirm his covenant that he swore to your fathers, as it is this day. Deuteronomy 8:18
Give like you never have given before. And as God sees your faithfulness, He will bless you with abundance in every area of your life, give you perfect health, and cause His face to shine upon you. Remember — it all begins with the prosperity of your soul.
