Proverbs 13:11 NLT

Wealth from get-rich-quick schemes quickly disappears; wealth from hard work grows over time.”

I have been burned several times already with “get rich quick” schemes, thinking that this may be the blessing I have been waiting for from God.  I never realized that this is not how God normally blesses us.

It is clear in God’s Word that we need to work hard, and make the wealth that we have now grow over time.  If I am not doing something and expecting my current wealth to grow, it will also quickly disappear.

Also do not work hard on just anything that comes into your mind.  Sit down and spend a couple of hours brainstorming with God.  He is your CEO.  Let Him give you the directions.  Once we hear from God what He wants us to do, we just need to work hard on it, and at the same time believing that God is blessing every minute we are working on His idea.  It is His idea anyway, so for sure He will provide for it, He will clear the way for it, and He will continue to bless it.  He is able and He is pleased with our prosperity.

Thank You Jesus for your cross made this possible!  We love you Jesus!  Amen!
