His RichesMay 5, 2016
"A good man leaves an inheritance to his children's children: and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just" (Prov. 13:22).
The Lord Jesus said to me once, as He came and sat by my bedside and talked to me for an hour and a half about being led of the Spirit, "My Spirit will lead all of My children." The Bible says, "For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God" (Rom. 8:14).
"I will lead you, and not only you, but any child of God. I will show you what to do with your money. I will show you how to invest it. In fact, if you'll listen to Me, I will make you rich. I am not opposed to My children being rich. I am opposed to their being covetous." (Someone could be covetous and not have a dime.)
People misquote the Bible when they claim that it says, "Money is the root of all evil." But the Bible doesn't say that at all. It says, "For the love of money is the root of all evil" (1 Tim. 6:10).
It is all right for you to have money. It is wrong for money to have you!
Confession: I am a child of God. I am led by the Spirit of God. My trust is in God, not in riches. But I trust God to lead me concerning my finances. I honor God with tithes and offerings of all that I have. And all of my needs are supplied according to God's riches in glory by Christ Jesus.
