THE LORD WANTS YOU TO LIVE A PROFITABLE LIFE WITH NO LOSSES
Scripture reading: Isaiah 48:17 “Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, The Holy One of Israel: I am the LORD your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you by the way you should go. Oh, that you had heeded My commandments! Then your peace would have been like a river, And your righteousness like the waves of the sea”. (NKJV)
In this quoted verse, we read about the Lord reminding His nation, the Israelites that He is their Redeemer, the Lord who teaches them how to profit. To redeem means to compensate or regain possession of something.
A Redeemer is someone who regains, redeem and repurchase. In this Word, God wanted to remind Israel that He is the one who has the power to regain possession of everything and if they allow Him to guide them He will teach them how to make profit.
God saw that Israel had suffered so much losses because they wanted to live a life that is dependent on their own understanding. They turned their backs from the Living God Jehovah and worshipped the moulded idols. They were stubborn and refused to follow the commands of the Lord their God. They spent their monies slaughtering for idols. Their rebellion caused them to suffer losses in the wilderness, their grains were eaten by foreigners and they also got exiled. However, the Lord being rich in mercy, did not completely forget about Israel. He wanted to help them to live a profitable life. A life of gain and multiplication. He wanted them to reap the fruits of their labour and to enjoy the wine of their grapes.
Child of God, the words that God Almighty spoke to the Israelites are applicable to you. For you are the spiritual Israel. Hear what the Lord is saying to you today, He wants to give you a new life that will bring you profit. You have spent your life doing things that did not benefit you. Your vines were eaten by foreigners because you used to offer your money on the wrong altars. With your money, you bought goats to be slaughtered for ancestors. Thus, your money does not work for you anymore. You work hard but you do not see what you do with your money. You spent years raising children but those children do not help you with anything. You invest so much but you get nothing in return. However, the Lord says, “I am your Redeemer the Lord who teaches you how to profit.”
You are a child of God now and your life cannot remain stagnant. The Lord says no more losses. You shall enjoy plenty and multiplication. Your money is coming to you. God is turning you into a millionaire. All those who owe you will pay you back. You shall be compensated for your hard work. Your children shall honour you. It shall rain goodness in your life. The Lord shall connect you with people who are going to bring you profits. Expect everything you touch to turn into gold. All you need to do is to allow the Lord to guide you, refuse to walk alone.
You may be asking yourself, how could this be? Since I am so poor, I come from a poor family and no one has ever succeeded in my family. How can the Lord make me a millionaire? Just believe and obey the Word of God. The Lord says, if you could heed His commandments then your peace and prosperity would flow like a river. Rivers are supplied for by God, therefore they never run dry. Child of God, you shall never live in lack if you allow yourself to be led and taught by the Lord. One of the greatest way to show our dependence on the Lord’s provision is offering. Offering communicates that on our own we are weak, but we rely upon the Lord.
Obedience when it comes to tithes and offering is never easy. It was not easy for Abraham to give His only son as well but He obeyed, and it was awarded to him as righteousness. Offering opens a tap of blessings. Stop counting your debts and rely upon the Lord. Your offering shall usher you to great heights. You shall be elevated. You shall occupy great positions and handle great wealth. Receive the enablement to create wealth in the Name of Jesus!
