Weary not yourself to be rich; cease from your own [human] wisdom (Proverbs 23:4 AMP).
Some people believe the reason they’re suffering or poor is because of the kind of work they do. That’s not true! The problem isn’t in the kind of work they do; rather it’s in their minds. Many of them think their success in life is hinged on making money through hard work, so they struggle and struggle till they get frustrated.
When I was much younger, I knew I would never be poor. Not just because of what I knew from the Word of God, but because there were three things I had learnt to do properly: I could shine shoes, wash cars, and sew clothes. I remember when I started sewing; my dad had just given me a shirt which was way bigger than my actual size. So I had to amend it to be able to wear it, and I did, using my mum’s sewing machine.
Of course, it looked funny by the time I was through, but I achieved something! I saw abilities within me. As time went on, I learnt how to cut properly and I got better until I became convinced that if I had to be a tailor, I would be the best. You have the capacity for great creative ideas; therefore look inside you for them.
Those ideas, if properly harnessed, are more valuable than money. If you nurse your ideas long enough and discipline yourself in their direction, you’ll become very good at what you do after a while and money will eventually come to you, for Money is a slave of ideas.
Your success, prosperity and greatness are not determined by your geographical location or by the economy of the nation where you function. Rather, your mind is what determines what you become, for with your mind you can change everything else. You can change the state of your nation and the economy; you can change anything if only you’ll have the right thoughts in your mind.
Dear Father, I thank you for giving me a creative mind from which inspiring ideas are born. As I discipline myself in the direction of my God given ideas today, my skills are improved and I Get better at what I do, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
