For ages and practically in every generation, men and women have always engaged in a search for wealth and riches. The desire to prosper and create wealth is probably as old as mankind on the surface of the earth.

Inside every man is a desire to do well in life, see progress in whatever endeavour they are engaged in.

Many have invested great efforts and hundreds of hours of hard work in their jobs and businesses, in order to make their dreams of living in financial plenty a reality.

Some have seen their dream materialized, while quite a number are still struggling financially despite all the efforts they have invested in their pursuit of financial plenty.

It has been observed throughout history, that 90 percent of the money has been made by 10 percent of the people. For example, 10 percent of the athletes make 90 percent of the money made by all athletes.

I do not believe that this is the perfect will of God for us. In God there is enough wealth to go round.

Zig Ziglarsaid, “In my work I often see people who don’t succeed, but I seldom see one who can’t succeed.”


 Friends, financial wealth is available for all in God. But it does not answer to the struggles of men. It is neither a product of the smartness nor the hard work of the seeker of wealth. “……..No one makes it in this life by sheer muscle! 1samuel 2:9

“It is the LORD’s blessing that makes you wealthy. Hard work can make you no richer.”Pro 10:22

Wealth is a product of the blessing of God that is functional upon an individual. Thank God for hard and smart work, but it does not guarantee the acquisition of wealth and riches.

No wonder the Bible says, “Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.”Proverbs 23:4

Another version of this scripture says “Don’t wear yourself out trying to get rich; restrain yourself!”

It does not just answer to hard work!

Wealth answers to the blessing of God. What you should seek is God’s blessing. It is His blessing that guarantees your sweat-less access into the realms wealth and riches.


To be blessed means to be divinely empowered. A blessed man is a man who enjoys the power from on high in his life, and upon all he does.

“And all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee, if thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God.”

Another version says “All these blessings will come down on you and spread out beyond you because you have responded to the Voice of GOD, your God:”

Obedience to the voice is God is your sure access to the blessings of God. “If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.” Job 36:11 

Obedience positions you for His blessings and His blessing will ultimately make you rich. “It is the LORD’s blessing that makes you wealthy. Hard work can make you no richer.”Pro 10:22

Obeying God will not in any way reduce you rather it will take you to great heights. His commandments are not to grieve us but to groom us; they are not to punish us but to polish us so that we can shine financially.

“For this is the love of God, that we keep his commandments: and his commandments are not grievous.” 1John 5:3

Friends, I want to charge you to make a commitment to live by scriptural injunction, and you can be sure of the financial reward that will accrue to you.

Let’s have your view or experiences about obeying God as you make a comment.

To Your Prosperity
