True Financial Dominion
27 SEPTEMBER 2022
There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job. And that man was blameless and upright, and one who feared God and turned aside from evil. And there were born to him seven sons and three daughters. And his possessions also were seven thousand sheep and three thousand camels, and five hundred yoke of oxen, and five hundred female donkeys, and a very great household, so that this man was the greatest of all the men of the east. Job 1:1–3 AFV
What does being rich look like? What are the characteristics of someone who is rich or walks in financial dominion? The Bible tells us that Jesus was rich and traded His riches to make us rich. If you were to use your parameters of what being rich is, would it be consistent with things that marked Jesus’ state of being rich?
Bearing in mind that we are in the upside-down kingdom, compared with the world’s kingdoms, our perspective on things would not be consistent with the world’s. There is one master God refers to, apart from himself, and it is not the devil. God refers to money as a master that we cannot serve and serve Him also. Having lots of money without God as your master does not make you financially dominant. As a matter of fact, you are dominated by money, a slave for its pleasures.
Charge those who are rich in this present age not to be high-minded, nor to put their hope in the uncertainty of riches; but to put their hope in the living God, Who abundantly gives us all things for our enjoyment; 1 Timothy 6:17. Being rich is to be humble, with your hope in God. And when you have your mind aligned with His agenda and the anointing produces in you the power to make wealth, your generosity reveals your financial dominion.
Financial dominion looks like financing the kingdom agenda, feeding the poor, staying as a channel of blessing for others, and caring for those who have been rejected. When you are able to use money as a tool in pleasing God and not being used by it, then you are rich and dominating financially.
Thank you Father for all the provision You have made available to me. Help me to be a good steward and to see the resources as a Trust from You for Kingdom advancement, In Jesus’ name. Amen
