6 Keys to Guarantee Biblical Wealth and Prosperity

6 Keys to Guarantee Biblical Wealth and Prosperity By .

Last week my pastor asked me to teach the Wednesday night service at our church while he enjoyed himself at Bike Week in Florida. I’ve learned not to panic anymore when he asks, but it can certainly be a little intimidating to get up in front of people to teach. I’ve gotten much more comfortable with it over the years though. So I decided to talk about what I know best, which is biblical wealth and prosperity.

Of course I don’t claim to be a world renowned expert on the subject, but I do have many years of experience teaching what the bible has to say about it.

If you like, you can scroll down to the middle of this post and watch the video of my teaching.


Wealth and Prosperity- A Touchy Subject

Talking about wealth and prosperity in the church is one of those subjects that tend to get used and abused on a regular basis.

On one hand there are some who teach that if you just believe hard enough, you can have all the wealth and prosperity you could ever want. Of course, belief and faith are one part of the equation, but there’s a lot more to it than that.

On the other hand some preachers try to convince you that being wealthy, successful, and prosperous are something to be avoided- that the poorer you are, the more humble you are and the closer to God you become.


Does God Want You to Be Wealthy?

But where does the truth lie when you’re talking about prosperity and wealth in the Bible? How does it relate to your spiritual walk and your relationship with God?

Does God even want us to be wealthy and prosperous, or are we better off spiritually if we stay away from it?

As it turns out, the Bible has a lot to say about wealth and prosperity. It actually puts forth several key things you can do to achieve the righteous wealth and prosperity that God actually does want us to have.

In fact, if we follow the prescription we find in the scriptures, He has no choice but to give us a level of prosperity that fulfills our every need, plus guarantees an excess that we can use to bless others with.

The Definition of Prosperity

Before I delved into what the Bible had to say about it, the first thing I decided to do is to look up the definition of prosperity. So I looked up the Webster’s definition along with several versions found in Greek and Hebrew. Here are some of the characteristics of prosperity that I found:

  • Plenty
  • To be over and above, to abound
  • Advance or gain in anything good or desirable
  • Deliverance, salvation
  • Peace
  • More than enough
  • Successful progress in business or enterprise
  • Completeness, soundness
  • Good fortune

As you can see, prosperity is not all about money. Prosperity consists of so much more than that. It’s a comprehensive, all-encompassing variety of good things for your life, finances included!

Here’s What I Found in the Bible

In my study, I found 6 key things you can do to make sure that God opens up the windows of heaven for you and provide you with a blessed life that most people could only dream about.

Therefore, as I list each one I’ll have a few scriptures to back it up. This is a fairly long and comprehensive study on the subject, but I know you’ll appreciate the revelations you receive as you get into it!

6 Keys to Prosperity and Wealth in Every Part of Your Life

There are 6 key things I found that you can do to bring godly wealth and prosperity into your life. I’m sure there are others that I could include, but these seem to be the ones that crop up over and over in the scriptures. Here’s the list:

  • Diligence
  • Seek God in Everything
  • Seek Righteousness
  • Keep His Commandments (Walk in His Ways)
  • Honor God With Your Wealth
  • Develop Your Faith (Trust) in God

So let’s get started…



One of the first things I discovered that you must do to get God’s blessings upon you is to practice DILIGENCE.

Now, when the Bible refers to diligence in these scriptures, it’s referring to consistency and hard work. The definition of diligence I found on Google reads “careful and persistent effort”



“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the LORD your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the LORD your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the LORD your God.”

Key Phrases:

  • Diligently obey
  • Observe carefully
  • Overtake you

Listen to what God has to say- in His word as well as in direct communication with Him (prayer). Be diligent to observe His commandments and He will set you above others that don’t. Do these things and His blessings will overtake you because you are diligently obedient.


“…the LORD does not allow the righteous go hungry, But He thwarts the craving of the wicked. A slack hand causes poverty, But the hand of the diligent makes rich.”

Key Phrases:

  • The righteous won’t go hungry
  • Be diligent in pursuing God and Godly things, and He will reward you
  • Lack of diligence causes you to come to poverty

When you’re being diligent to pursue righteousness God will see to it that you are fed. Diligence makes one rich (prosperous in every way). However, lack of diligence will cause you to come to poverty (lack of prosperity).



“The soul of a lazy man desires, and has nothing; But the soul of the diligent shall be made rich.”

  • Desire without work will never allow you to have anything
  • Diligence makes you rich (prosperous)

Wishing will get you nowhere, but hard work and consistent effort will always benefit you and your situation. God sees your diligence and rewards you for it instead of simply granting empty wishes to someone not willing to do the work necessary.




Seeking God in everything goes along with diligence, in that seeking God should be a constant in your life if you want God to consistently bless you and your situation.


2 CHRONICLES 31:20-216 Keys to Biblical Wealth and Prosperity

“Thus Hezekiah did throughout all Judah, and he did what was good and right and faithful before the Lord his God. And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, in the law and in the commandment, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart. So he prospered.”

Key Phrases:

  • Did what was good
  • All his heart

Hezekiah sought God, did what was good, and served Him with all his heart. When you are a seeker God in every situation and you’re faithful, God will cause you to prosper in the same way.


PSALM 1:1-3

“Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the ungodly; nor standeth in the way of sinners, nor sitteth in the seat of the scornful. But his delight is in the law of the Lord; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.”

Key Phrases: 

  • Delight in the law of the Lord

Standing as a sinner, being scornful, and taking the advice of ungodly people are all things that keep you from accessing God’s blessings. But when you set your heart and mind on godly things you are constantly nourished, always fruitful, and whatever you do prospers because you have that Godly blessing upon you.

You will be constantly fed. You’ll be fruitful in due season. You will not wither when things get tough (in a dry season). You will prosper in everything you do when you consistently seek godly things.


Righteousness simply means being in right standing with God.


PSALM 37:25-26

“I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, or his seed begging bread. He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed”

Key Phrase-

  • not seen the righteous forsaken

Righteousness is a state of moral uprightness that can only be achieved through belief in Jesus and God’s plan of salvation. Being righteous doesn’t mean you’re perfect, but it does mean you follow God’s ways and believe in salvation. You are always seeking God’s ways and living them out in your own life.

When you practice righteousness:

  • God will never forsake you
  • You won’t be in poverty, your children won’t have to beg to meet their needs
  • You’ll have the ability to be merciful to people
  • You will be lender, not a borrower
  • Your seed will be blessed- meaning it will multiply and flourish, meeting all your needs to the point of excess


PROVERBS 8:18-21

“Riches and honor are with me: yea, durable riches and righteousness. My fruit is better than gold, yea, than fine gold; and my revenue than choice silver. I lead in the way of righteousness, in the midst of the paths of judgment; That I may cause those that love me to inherit substance; and I will fill their treasures.”

Key Phrase:

  • Durable riches and righteousness

Walking in God’s path for your life brings riches and honor. This means riches in everything, not just material wealth. He leads you into righteousness, and when you follow His lead you will have durable riches as well.

  • Durable Riches- Wealth that is gotten in righteous ways is lasting wealth, and will be an inheritance to your children’s children

Keep His Commandments (Walk in His Ways)

Keeping God’s commandments (walking in His ways) is a very important part of leading a good Christian life, but does it result in wealth and abundance?


PSALM 23:1

The Lord is my shepherd I shall not want.

So when you allow yourself to be led by the Lord, you will never lack for anything.


1 KINGS 2:3

David’s Instructions to Solomon as He Was Dying

“And keep the charge of the LORD your God, walking in His ways and keeping his statutes, his commandments, His rules, and his testimonies, as it is written in the law of Moses, that you may prosper in all that you do, and wherever you turn…”

Key Phrases:

  • Walking in His ways
  • Thou may prosper in all that you do

When you do Godly things and follow Godly ways you will prosper in everything and whichever way you turn. David gave these instructions to Solomon (who followed them) and ended up being known as the wisest and wealthiest man who ever lived!


PSALM 84:11-12

“For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly…”

Key Phrase:

  • sun and shield

Walking uprightly in the way of the Lord allows God to light your way (sun) and protect you (shield). It allows Him to extend you grace when you need it, and allows Him to bring ALL good things your way.



“If you walk in my statutes and keep my commandments, and perform them, then I will give you rain in its season, the land shall yield its produce, and the trees of the field shall yield their fruit. Your threshing shall last till the time of vintage, and the vintage shall last till the time of sowing; you shall eat your bread to the full, and dwell in your land safely.”

Key Phrases:

  • walk in my statutes
  • yield fruit

Walk in my statutes, keep my commandments- I’ll provide the rain that produces growth and abundance for what you have planted. You’ll have abundance from one harvest that will continue to the next harvest. You will have more than enough.


Honor God With Your Wealth

God is a Giver. We are made in God’s image, so we are made to be givers too. God knows we function at our best when we give of what we have, and he rewards us for it.


Proverbs 10:22

“The blessing of the Lord brings wealth, and he adds no trouble to it.”

Key Phrases- Blessing of the Lord

Of course, God is a giver of blessings. How do you get the blessings of the Lord upon you? By following His ways, being diligent, seeking Him, seeking righteousness, etc., He has to bless you. He has no other choice- His blessings make you wealthy in every aspect- He gives it to you freely and joyfully without condemnation.



“Honor thy Lord with your wealth, and with the firstfruits of all thine increase: So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine.”

Key Phrases: Honor the Lord

There are many ways to honor the Lord (worship, good works, upright living…) but this one specifically says to do it with your substance (your wealth). Giving the first fruits (tithe) is part of this, but also using your wealth in righteous ways (family, charity, etc.) is also included. Doing these things not only allows you to have enough, you’ll have an excess.


“then you say in your heart, ‘My power and the might of my hand have gained me this wealth.’ And you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth…”

Key Phrases:

  • My power
  • He gives you power

Remember that all wealth comes from God. He gives you the power to generate wealth, be it a little or a lot. Recognizing that wealth is gained through His power and not yours allows you to stay humble.

This recognition opens up the doors for Him to bless your hard work. Leaving God out of the equation limits the blessing you get from all your hard work. He can’t multiply it unless you believe that ultimately it all comes from Him.



“Whoever brings blessing will be made rich, And he who waters will also be watered himself.”

Another form of giving is just being a blessing to others, which opens up God’s ability to see to it that you are blessed in return.


Malachi 3:10-12

“Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, That there may be food in My house, And try Me now in this,” Says the LORD of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven And pour out for you such blessing That there will not be room enough to receive it. And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, So that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, Nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field, Says the LORD of hosts. And all nations will call you blessed For you will be a delightful land, Says the LORD of hosts.”

Key Phrases

  • Bring the tithe into the storehouse (Give to the church)

What Tithing Does:

  • opens up the windows of Heaven
  • Rebukes the devourer (instead of living paycheck to paycheck, you’ll have enough)
  • Won’t destroy what you have (fruit) or your harvest that is on the way (vine)
  • Others will call you blessed



“But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully. So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.”

Key Phrases:

  • Sow
  • Reap
  • cheerful giver

Giving is like spreading seed– if you only spread a few seeds, you get only a few plants and a small harvest. Sowing very little means you reap very little (you’ll just barely get by). A sparse harvest will cause you to consume all your seed instead of putting some back for more sowing.

On the other hand, spreading more seed gets you a bigger harvest, producing an excess that allows you to sow even more, gaining an even larger harvest.

Be cheerful when you give. Negativity about giving actually cancels out your blessing. Always sow happily in anticipation of a great harvest.

Develop Your Faith (Trust) in God

Trusting God to do what His word says He will do is extremely important to gaining godly prosperity and wealth. If you can’t trust God to live up to His word, then why do you believe in the first place?


JAMES 1:5-7

“If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and up-braideth not: and it shall be given him. But let him ask in faith, not wavering. For he that wavers is like a wave of the sea driven with the wind and tossed. For let not that man think he shall receive any thing of the Lord.”

Key Phrases:

  • Gives to all men liberally
  • he that wavers

Ask of Him, and He will give to you liberally. You must ask in faith and not waver. Being unsure about God’s promises will not allow you to receive His liberal gifts to you.


MATTHEW 6:31-33

“Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink: or, wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

Key Phrases:

  • Take no thought
  • seek first

Don’t sit around worrying about food, clothing, or basic needs. Have faith, and trust that God knows what you need and that He will provide it when you seek Him first.


PSALM 37:3-5,11

“Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed. Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart. Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.”

Key Phrases: 

  • Trust in the Lord
  • Delight in the Lord
  • commit

Trust means you should have faith that He is on your side and will work on your behalf. Complete trust in God is a very difficult thing to do, but when you give it all over to Him, that’s when He can do His best work for you.

Delight in the Lord- Commune with God often and experience the joy that comes with that communion.

Commit- Don’t be double minded or wishy washy. Non committed people don’t get very far at anything in life or with God

So do these things and He will give you the desires of your heart. He will bring it to pass.



TAKEAWAYS: 6 Keys to Ensure Prosperity and Wealth

  • Diligence- Careful and persistent effort- consistent hard work- The key to all the other keys below is to be diligent in doing them
  • Seek God in Everything- Always seek to please God and delight in His ways. Seeking His guidance and will in your life allows Him to guide you and bless you.
  • Seek Righteousness- Always seek to live an upright life and you’ll be blessed because of it.
  • Keep His Commandments (Walk in His Ways)- Know what God’s ways of doing things are, and when you live by those ways you’ll be greatly blessed.
  • Honor God With Your Wealth- Be a tither, and give offerings over and above the tithe. We are made in the image of God to be givers, and when we do it opens up windows for God to do huge things in our lives!
  • Have Faith and Trust in God- Giving every concern over to God is a hard thing to do, but when you do it allows Him to act on your behalf better than you could ever do for yourself. Trust that what His word says will come to pass when you do the right things.


The 6 Keys to Wealth and Prosperity

I’m sure there are plenty of other things you can do to ensure God’s blessings and prosperity upon your life. But I think these are 6 of the most important keys to godly prosperity and wealth, especially since you can find them repeatedly in scripture throughout both the New and Old Testaments.

Of course, these are spiritual laws that the more you follow them, the more you’ll find that you’re blessed in every area of your life, including monetary wealth.


God Can’t Do it Without You

The most important thing you have to understand is that God can’t do it without you. His nature is to bless you when you’re doing the right things. When you’re not, His hands are tied and He can’t bless you like He wants to.

So remember to use these 6 keys if you want open up the windows of heaven and experience all the wealth and prosperity God promises we can have!

Daily devotional: He’ll Never Let You Down

Daily devotional: He’ll Never Let You Down


…There is a friend that sticketh closer than a brother (Proverbs 18:24).


We all have friends, relatives and loved ones—people we relate with, talk with, share with, pray with and whose company we enjoy. Whereas it’s possible for your friends or loved ones to disappoint you or let you down in your hour of need, there’s ONE who never gives up on you. He never fails or disappoints those who trust in Him; His Name is Jesus! What you need is to develop a personal relationship with Him—an intimacy.

Daily devotional

Daily devotional: He’ll Never Let You Down

The beautiful thing is that you don’t need to look for Him; He lives in you through the Holy Spirit! Before He ascended, He said, “I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you” (John 14:18). In the preceding verses 16 and 17, He said, “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever; Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.” So today, you fellowship with Jesus by fellowshipping with the Holy Spirit and with the Word.

The Holy Spirit takes the place of the absent Jesus and fosters the extraordinary oneness and communion we have with divinity. You can talk with Him, and He’ll talk to you. He can talk to you inside you, and also talk to you from the outside! He’s the dearest friend you could ever have, and He has the wisdom and ability to guide and lead you triumphantly every day.

He’ll go any length to help you. He already proved it through His death for you on the cross. He never condemns you. Rather, He plucks you out of trouble without laying blames on you, irrespective of the cause. He said, “I am with you always, even unto the end of the world” (Matthew 28:20). What a friend we have in Him! I love Him so much!


Blessed Lord Jesus, you’re my life, and my all; the very air that I breathe: my lover and best friend. Thank you for your wisdom that guides me, and your grace that’s superabundant upon me. Your Word has transformed me, causing me to ride upon the high places of the earth. What a wonder you are, precious Saviour! Thank you for your love and eternal kindness towards me. I love you with all my heart!

Daily devotional: Rule Over Your Spirit

Daily devotional: Rule Over Your Spirit



Daily devotional: Rule Over Your Spirit.

He that hath no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls (Proverbs 25:28).

The Bible says in 2 Peter 1:5-6, “And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge; And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience; and to patience godliness.” “Temperance” in the scripture above is the Greek word, “egkrateia,” which means holding yourself in. It also means self-control; the ability to keep your cool and maintain your composure even when others try to ride roughshod over you.

Daily devotional: Rule Over Your SpiritDaily devotional: Rule Over Your Spirit

Imagine you were driving, and a careless driver bumped your car, instead of apologising, he even got abusive. What would you do? Would you pour invectives at him? Some may even alight from their car to engage in a brawl. No! That’s not for the Christian. Irrespective of the situation, restrain yourself from any form of altercation or bandy of words. This doesn’t mean you’re naïve; rather, you’re simply living out your true nature—the Christ-nature and kingly life in you.

As a Christian, you can’t afford to live carelessly; you must be able to hold yourself in from doing or saying things that could cast dent on your Christian character. Consciously train yourself to exercise moderation in all things.

An athlete who’s gunning for a new record at the games, for example, can’t afford to live carelessly prior to the games, because it’ll affect his performance. There’re things he’d have to endure to keep fit. He may not like some of those things, but because he has his eyes on the prize, he’d have to endure them. This is the picture the Word creates for us in admonishing that you add temperance to your faith.

It’s not okay to do whatever you feel like doing; always hold yourself from within. If you couldn’t do it, God wouldn’t have asked you to. Self-control is in your spirit, and to be activated when the need arises. Someone without self-control is like a city without walls, which the enemy can plunder at any time. Don’t be that way. Fortify yourself, your life, your spirit, against the adversary; and one of the ways to do that is to have rule over your spirit: self-control.


Dear Father, I thank you for the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit in me. I’m disciplined, cultured, and temperate in all things. As the epistle and icon of Christ, I manifest excellence and righteousness always, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

DOING BUSINESS GOD’S WAY: Four cornerstones and three key principles

DOING BUSINESS GOD’S WAY: Four cornerstones and three key principles. The following is excerpted from Doing Business God’s Way, in which author Santiago Rivera teaches business owners how to allow their connection with God to help them achieve their entrepreneurial goals. Business people walking toward light - Doing business God's way



The four cornerstones

Doing business God’s way includes four cornerstones that will help you move into the light of universal laws, which must happen before we begin the entrepreneurial work of creating a business or expanding an established business.

The first cornerstone is the utilization of the Bible as the learning tool for God’s principles to create, expand and maintain any business on this Earth. With the Bible, we acquire the natural power within us to develop the bright light God gives us into success, prosperity and love.

As God reveals in detail His principles to you, a traditional business plan must follow to maintain the business idea.

Remember, “Give to Caesar what belongs to Caesar, and give to God what belongs to God.” With this phrase, God empowers and allows you to comply with the forces of traditional business methods, using His principles to control the success of your destiny and the overall success of the Kingdom.

The second cornerstone recognizes and accepts that it is all about Him, and for Him.

To state it simply, our mundane ways of doing business do not work for us. During the application of the second cornerstone, you will be rewarded with power from God.

The ideas created by our ego and extenuated business plans that we make on our own will not lead us to the place of blessing, where we will have an abundant life in glory. God never intended for us to be able to “handle” life on our own, but designed it in such a way that we must depend on Him.

Commit your works to the Lord, and your thoughts shall be established. The Lord has made all for Himself, yes, even the wicked for the day of doom.

(Proverbs 16:3-4 NKJV)


Doing business for Him is the most open yet hidden secret on the Earth of doing business God’s way. God’s blessings are a supernatural empowerment of His goodness and love for you. He wants to take you to another level of grace, love, abundance and success.

When we do any business for Him, He will outdo himself every time, as He is revealing the ideas, and giving us the tools, talents, abilities and resources needed to receive abundance from Heaven.

Our Creator is amazing. He wants us to live in the fullness of the blessing. He anointed our head with the holy oil and made our cup run over to bless others.

As you receive a direct connection with God, He will move you forward from barely making it in business to having more than enough. He will present and open doors in a supernatural way. He will position your name with the right people, in the right places and at the right time.

Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us, to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

(Ephesians 3:20-21 NKJV)

The power that works in us is our desire to connect with Him, do business for Him and with Him.

The third cornerstone recognizes that God does not play games.

He never wants to deal with false promises, sin or misplaced priorities. He knows you from the end to the beginning.

God does not allow for negotiating. When we follow His ways, we live an abundant, successful and blessed life.

To apply this in practical business terms, look into your heart and recall the deeper business dream. Think of all we would expect to do upon opening a business. There are hundreds of logistic details that need to be decided on before the doors open.

It is always wise to get advice from the Creator of all, a God who has experience and fulfills promises. In this third cornerstone, you will have acquired power from your environment.

To complete the equation for success in business, the last cornerstone is your trust in Him.

Your trust requires you to believe in Him and follow Him. As you believe in His promises, you will be able to follow his business practices, and your soul will create a bond of trust.

Thus says the Lord: Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart departs from the Lord. For he shall be like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see when good comes, but shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness, in a salt land which is not inhabited.

(Jeremiah 17:5-6 NKJV)

Sadly, as problems arise, more trust is placed in society’s systems and technologies rather than God, and that leads to disappointment and loss of finance, family, friends and even the business itself. Trust means to believe in and rely on, regardless of the situations that arise—business-wise or personally.

We cannot say we believe in God, yet refuse to accept and embrace his principles that will bring change and reformation.

The Bible says, “Is there anything too hard for the Lord?” There is no limit to what God can and will do if you dare to believe in Him.

Give God your unconditional trust and faith to work with Him.




The three principles

As we focus on all the cornerstones of doing business God’s way, and bring them together, let’s look at 1 Corinthians 1:27.

But God has chosen the foolish things of the world to put to shame the wise, and God has chosen the weak things of the world to put to shame the things which are mighty.

(1 Corinthians 1:27 NKJV)

This means the way God does things will sound totally foreign to all of us because His ways are opposite to our earthly approaches. Since most of us grew up in the worldly business system, His approach sounds different from what we have been taught and observed.

There are three basic principles of doing business God’s way.

The first principle is that no debt is needed to develop and run your business—ifyou use God’s way.

When He reveals the dream of a business adventure to you, He will put the tools and resources in your hands to make it happen. No doubt about it.

The Lord will open to you His good treasure, the heavens, to give the rain to your land in its season, and to bless all the work of your hand. You shall lend to many nations, but you shall NOT borrow.

(Deuteronomy 28:12 NKJV)

When we take a business loan without any personal guarantee, we are not operating in the blessing of God, according to Deuteronomy 28:12. In fact, there are no scriptures within the Bible in which God commands someone to take a loan based on His direction.

The second principle tells us we must not neglect family for business.

Father working on laptop - Doing business God's way

With this principle we need to define the word “family.” According to Dictionary.com, (2014) “the family is a basic social unit consisting of parents and their children, considered as a group, whether dwelling together or not: the traditional family.”

In today’s modern society, the family has undergone significant transformations in its structure. The family is a social unit and can be described as “nuclear” if residing in the same household.

God wants to impart on us a clear understanding of His authority and His plan for us. He chose to reveal Himself and the clear purpose of His will in our soul.

Having made known to us the mystery of His will, according to His good pleasure, which He purposed in Himself.

(Ephesians 1:9, NKJV)

Through Jesus, the Word made flesh; we have access to the Father and can share in the divine nature of the Holy Spirit. Through this revelation, therefore, God out of the abundance of His love speaks to men as friends (John 15:14-15) and lives among them, so He may invite and take them into fellowship with Himself.

By this revelation then, the deepest truth about God and the salvation of man shines out for our sake in Jesus, who both are the mediator and the fullness of all revelation.

The traditional structure of a family is crucial to other universal laws, human cornerstone principles, and teachings in the Bible. It is also important to understand what God wants from us to glorify Him, and not the family.

As you glorify Him and offer Him everything you do, He will pour blessings to you to overflow and pass into your family and future generations.

This is a faithful saying: If a man desires the position of a bishop, he desires a good work. A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, temperate, sober-minded, of good behaviour, hospitable, able to teach; not given to wine, not violent, not greedy for money, but gentle, not quarrelsome, not covetous; one who rules his own house well, having his children in submission with all reverence.

(1 Timothy 3:1-4 NKJV)

1 Timothy 3:1-4 applies directly to Christian entrepreneurs who want to do business God’s way, because we are overseers of God’s works in business on this Earth.

If God has given you the vision to start or expand a business, the business you start is His work, and you are the overseer, or as we call it in the business world, the Chief Executive Officer.

If you neglect your family in time, space, and support, your life will not be successful.

The third and last principle in doing business God’s way is remembering not to labour to be rich in business.

Then, how do we make it?

Do not overwork to be rich; Because of your own understanding, cease!

(Proverbs 23:4 NKJV)

How, as a new business owner, can you become successful without working hard? Well, let’s first look at the definition of working.

It is defined as the physical, mental and spiritual work causing you extreme fatigue and frustration.

What I want you to focus on is fatigue and frustration. When you are working according to this definition (and the usage of this word in the Proverbs 23:4), the production of that work comes at the price of fatigue and frustration. It makes us feel devastated, as if we’ll never see the light at the end of the tunnel.

While working in our new business to be successful, according to Proverbs 23:4, we are leaning on our free will and ego instead of on God’s wisdom.


However, if you are connected with God, the Holy Spirit that lives inside of you will direct and guide you to focus and see success and prosperity with purpose.

As you trust God more and more each day to guide you in your business, declare boldly His word, meditate on His promises, listen to Him, expect natural and supernatural events in your life, and put Him first because your business should be done by His will.

In your prayer, be bold for God and confess with your mouth, soul and mind that you know with Him all things are possible. Tell Him every day you choose to stand solid in faith, that you trust Him, and you choose to receive every blessing He has for you.

Blessed be it! In the name of His son Jesus, you are asking, you are expecting, and thanking Him because you are receiving. Amen!

Daily devotional: Open Your Mind To Knowledge

Daily devotional: Open Your Mind To Knowledge


And beside this, giving all diligence, add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge (2 Peter 1:5).


Knowledge in our opening verse is the Greek word, “gnosis,” which is scientific knowledge; knowledge based on science or intellectual activity. God wants you to have, not only revelation knowledge, but also knowledge about life and natural things of arts and science. He wants you to be versatile and open to knowledge. He wants you to be well informed.

Daily devotional

This doesn’t mean having a penchant for worldly information; rather, it means improving yourself, acquiring the right information that’ll build your personality. Most importantly, He wants you to build your knowledge of His Word. Anyone who ignores knowledge is setting up himself for the hard life. Hosea 4:6 says, “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…” (Hosea 4:6). The knowledge of God’s Word is what puts you over in life. Invest in it.


Be sure to have a good study Bible, and other faith-building teachings in books and digital formats. Avail yourself the opportunity to learn something definite every day—something that’ll challenge, inspire, and cause you to be the best of you. Even now, in studying this devotional, knowledge is coming to you; open your mind to receive the teachings and instructions coming from the Spirit.


Opening your mind to knowledge isn’t just about reading up every available topic in an unguarded manner; no! In reality, the Bible tells us that Jesus Christ is the embodiment of all wisdom and knowledge (Colossians 2:3). If you open your heart to Him (the Word) in meditation, you’d be amazed how much knowledge would come to you. Also, having received the Holy Spirit, there’s a wealth of knowledge and wisdom in the recesses of your spirit, and all you have to do is activate them through meditation. Hallelujah!




Christ is the embodiment of all wisdom and knowledge, and He lives in me. Therefore, there’s no limit to my knowledge. Through meditation, I dig deep into the recesses of my spirit, activating the wisdom and knowledge in me, for witty inventions, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.



Colossians 1:9

Colossians 2:2-3

2 Peter 1:2-3
