My Dad is Rich

07 April, 2019

We have an all-powerful Almighty God, who owns this world and we are His children. Let’s dive in to see how we are His heirs!

‘And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.’
Philippians 4:19 NIV.

From this verse it can be derived that:

  • Our God has an abundance of wealth.
  • He is a willing father who can supply all our needs and that when He gives, He gives lavishly to His children.
  • He supplies in accordance to His glory i.e., whatever He gives will bring Him the glory for no one can give like He does, it will be a supernatural overflow.

When we talk about being rich, it needs to start with a change in our mindset with which we limit ourselves in accordance to what we think we can make, or even our earthly inheritances. We need to start expecting in accordance to the riches of our Heavenly Father and know that He owns the whole world and everything in it. For like it says in Psalm 50:12, ‘If I were hungry I would not tell you, for the world is mine, and all that is in it.

However, there is something else we need to understand: God releases blessings according to our ability to handle things. He looks for our stewardship to send down blessings. We are the ones that block out our inheritance when we sin and turn away from Him. He is always willing to give when we are deserving and our managerial skills grow. If we are faithful to Him and walk within His amazing and perfect will, God will give you much to handle. As we grow in Him, He gives us abundantly. He wants us to have everything for our enjoyment, peace and prosperity. God’s heart is to see that we are happy.

Now how do we keep track with what God wants us to do to receive His blessings? Here are certain revelations that will help you.

Being rich is an attitude. We often find people who belong to rich families living in poverty. There are three things that explain this:

1. Ignorance of who they are.
2. A bad relationship with their family.
3. When the given wealth is mismanaged.

The same applies to why we are unable to receive from our Heavenly Father.

When we have a prosperous mind set we prosper in all areas of life. God’s heart is to give us wealth, health and a peaceful soul. Being rich is all about a good and prosperous thinking. As our soul prospers we will have prosperity in all areas of life. Our wealth is directly proportional to our mind-set remembering that our mind is part of our soul.

It has been researched and derived that there are two common factors every millionaire possesses. In a study of over 600 millionaires, the qualities that stood out were resilience, which was their ability to bounce back after a blow and perseverance which was their nature to be consistent and steady. Two qualities we need to pray for.

As Psalm 23 says: The Lord is my shepherd. I lack nothing. Like the psalmist, never describe your current situations with negative feelings, but with hope that the Good Shepherd will lead you always. This will ensure that everything will conform to be in line with what you utter. Speak in accordance with the glorious riches of the Great Shepherd. Proverbs 10:22- The blessing of the Lord comes without great toiling for it.

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sake He became poor, so that you through His poverty might become rich (2 Corinthians 8:9). Jesus became poor to make us rich not only spiritually but also in resources. He came to reverse all our adversities at the cross. Jesus reversed everything – curses to blessings, sickness to healing, poverty to wealth and sinfulness to holiness. If we know that our Dad is rich, we can expect a supernatural blessing from him. He is the ALMIGHTY God. Let’s receive this revelation that we are the children of this Almighty God.

If we are born poor it’s not our fault but if we die poor, we are at fault.

When we have a rich dad there are no excuses not to multiply our wealth. He has given us enough. If we don’t use the resources that God gives us, we are at risk. So let’s keep our hearts always aiming for a millionaire status especially in the kingdom of heaven.
