But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth... (Deuteronomy 8:18).
The word “power” in the verse above means an enablement; it means strength or ability. So, it should actually read, “But you shall remember the Lord your God: for it is he that enables, strengthens, and gives you the ability to get wealth.” Throughout the scriptures, the way God enabled anyone was by the Spirit, and through His Word.
For example, we read what He said to Saul in 1 Samuel 10:6: “And the Spirit of the Lord will come upon thee, and thou shalt prophesy with them, and shalt be turned into another man.” When the Spirit came on God’s people in the Old Testament, they were supernaturally enabled. Then we read in Genesis 12:2, God’s word to Abraham: “…I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing.” That was an enablement; the ability for greatness; the strength and power to prosper, was conferred on him when God spoke those words to him.
Now, about us, the new creation, Galatians 3 establishes the profound truth that we’re Abraham’s seed. In the twenty-ninth verse, Paul submits, “And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” Thus, as the seed of Abraham, the supernatural ability for greatness, success and a life of endless victories and possibilities have been conferred on you. Nothing is impossible for you, and with you anymore, because the Holy Spirit lives in you. Your consciousness of His indwelling presence, and walk in the light of His Word about you is your guarantee of a life of ever-increasing glory.
The Holy Spirit has granted me the supernatural advantage in life. I’ve been divinely enabled to walk in righteousness, prosperity, health, success, and victory. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. I walk in greatness and superabundance today. Hallelujah!
Further Study: || Colossians 1:9-11 For this cause we also, since the day we heard [it], do not cease to pray for you, and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of his will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; 10 That ye might walk worthy of the Lord unto all pleasing, being fruitful in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness; ||
|| 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. 2 But his delight [is] in the law of the LORD; and in his law doth he meditate day and night. 3 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. ||
