Listening to the Father's Heart - April 23
Son, I want to remind you that I am a Father who leads you in your practical, day-to-day life. I gave Jacob a way to fund his family business so he could leave the employment of his uncle Laban. I gave Noah plans for the ark so he could prepare for the great flood. I gave Peter instructions on how to find more fish. I gave my disciples a way to multiply food for 5,000. I instructed my son Moses to strike the rock to get water for my people (Ex 17:5-6). I delight in giving you the ideas you need to succeed in life. I give you the ability to create wealth. I will always give you what you need when you need it (Phil 4:19). I do this because I desire my people to be the head, not the tail, at the top, never at the bottom (Dt 28:13). You become a person of influence when you solve societal problems. I attract others to myself through you as my representative on earth.
Thus says the Lord, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: “I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go.” Isaiah 48:17
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. Dt 8:18
