Proverbs 18:1 Through desire a man, having separated himself, seeketh and intermeddleth with all wisdom.
What you do not desire, you do not deserve. You do not fast and pray to become rich; you fast and pray to enhance the revelation of wealth and how to get it. Without the desire to have wealth, you can never come out of lack. Knowledge gives you freedom, even financially.
John 8:32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
Poverty is a sin and it is wickedness. You were created to enjoy life; not to endure life. Enjoyment is not a sin. When you discover God’s ways, you exercise dominion. You cannot know His ways and not make waves on earth.
Every genuine and personal encounter with God’s word changes your life. The greatest investment is knowledge; you must desire it. Wisdom and knowledge is what will stabilize you no matter where you are; it is not who you know.
Isaiah 33:6a And wisdom and knowledge shall be the stability of thy times, and strength of salvation.
True knowledge does not only generate results but sustains it. Lasting prosperity is not by gimmicks or tricks. Without knowledge, you cannot enjoy greatness. Poverty is a function of ignorance, that is, the knowledge is there but you have refused to know. Knowledge is the master key to a world of exploits. If you want things to get better, you have to see brighter things. You have to learn.
Matthew 11:29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me.
Knowledge is not age-dependent, otherwise all old men will prosper. Do not assume you know something. Anything you do not know will not produce result. It is the depth of insight you have in God’s word that will determine how far you will go in your prosperity. To get out of poverty, you need to desire knowledge; you need to be preached to.
Matthew 11:5 The blind receive their sight, and the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, and the deaf hear, the dead are raised up, and the poor have the gospel preached to them.
Rise above being dependent on people. Many desire to be rich but never desire knowledge because they believe someone somewhere will always help them just like Lazarus the beggar.
Luke 16:20 And there was a certain beggar named Lazarus, which was laid at his gate, full of sores.
The day you get tired of begging, you will go for knowledge. Never beg, people change every day; go for yours. Take a quality decision backed with action and apply all you know. Decide now to read for there is no shortcut. Without revelation, you will not last long. Knowledge is of no value unless put it into practice.
Matthew 7:24 Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock.
Be wise and do what you have heard. No man’s revelation can carry you, go for your own revelation in the word and walk out of poverty. You are not the first to be poor; desire knowledge to come out of it!
God bless you
