Day 22 - PRINCIPLES OF EMPOWERMENT - The Reason for Resources

Wednesday, July 22, 2020 Bryan Hudson 0 Comments

Deuteronomy 8:18, And 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.

God gives power to get wealth. Many of us know this text and have quoted it. We need to remember that the purpose for this power or ability: is “To establish His covenant.” God’s covenant is His purpose for humanity, specifically for those who serve Him.

In every generation, God provided covenants of purpose empowered by His provision. Through Moses, God gave Ten Commandments to the Hebrews. Through Jesus, God gave salvation and renewal to all mankind.

Within God’s larger purpose are His specific plans and purposes for all time, including you and me. For example, with every purpose God has given me, from pastoring, to parenting, to publishing, to empowering youth, to equipping ministries, I have seen His faithfulness in providing needed resources. On Monday, August 14, 2017 we made the final payment on our church facility. For a smaller congregation, paying off a $700,000 commercial loan is a testament to God’s faithfulness and excellent stewardship!

You only need to be clear and committed to God’s purpose for your life and He makes a way!

Reflection Question: Within the concept of establishing God’s Covenant, what can you do that will attract His help and provision?
