Richly Blessed

God does want to bless you in every possible way. This includes not just the saving of your soul (although that is of paramount importance), it also means giving you good health and good success. That includes good success in business.

For some, it will be shocking, even scandalous, to hear that God wants to richly bless you in business, but this is exactly what he promised Abraham. Remember that he said to Abraham, “I will bless you”. The question worth asking though is why did God want to bless Abraham? The answer is supplied in that same verse of scripture. God said clearly, “You shall be a blessing”.

God wants to bless us so that we can be a blessing.

And yes, this even applies to modern-day Christians. The Apostle Paul tells us we are the “seed of Abraham” and “heirs according to the promise”.

This can be a dangerous position if we don't have a proper relationship to money and success. As long as we know in our heart that money is not our God, and that the purpose of our success is not to create our own self worth, we will be safe. We will be safe for success in a way that is pleasing to Jesus.

When we are truly safe for success, God will bless us richly. He promises it in His word, and His word says, “he who promised is faithful”.
