It is so important that you get this concept that God wants to do great things through you that I’m going to hit on it again…
John 15:5 – “I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit”
Christ is telling us in this scripture that if we are in Him, big things are going to happen through us. And then, the Bible goes on to say:
John 15:8 – “Herein is my Father glorified, that ye bear much fruit”
How do we bring Glory to God? By allowing Him to do big and great things through us.
2 Corinthians 1:20 says, “For all the promises of God (God makes no little promises) in him (Jesus) are yea (Yes), and in him Amen (So be it), unto the glory of God by us (GOD’S PROMISES ARE FULFILLED BY CHRIST WORKING THROUGH YOU AND I).”
In Ephesians 6:10, we read, “Be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might”
There is nothing in this verse that insinuates we should be puny weaklings who accomplish nothing for God.
Let me wrap up with these words from King David:
1 Chronicles 22:14 – “Now, behold, in my trouble I have prepared for the house of the LORD an hundred thousand talents of gold, and a thousand thousand talents of silver; and of brass and iron without weight; for it is in abundance: timber also and stone have I prepared; and thou mayest add thereto.”
Notice the phrase, “in my trouble”. In spite of all the difficulties that King David dealt with in his life, he still had a focus on creating wealth so that he could be a part of building up God’s Kingdom. Sure you’ll face troubles and difficulties in life, but that doesn’t excuse you from becoming a Millionaire For Jesus.
Next, notice the phrase, “and thou mayest add thereto”. Not only did King David create wealth for God’s work, but he instructs his son to create even more wealth so that God’s work could be even greater. This let’s us know that its not acceptable to God for us to sit and CONSUME what great men before us have worked to create. Instead, we are to add to what those before us have done.
Also, look at these numbers. My old Bible dictionary says a talent of Gold is worth approximately $30,000. That means that in today’s money, King David had amassed WAY over $3 Billion dollars in just Gold. Then, this scripture tells us that King David had amassed 1 Million (a thousand thousand) talents of Silver. Going back to my old dictionary, a talent of Silver is worth approximately $1,000. That means that King David had more than $1 Billion in just Silver.
And so I ask you, is it any problem for God to bring $1 Million or more into your life? I don’t think so! When you really get a full grasp of what great and big things God wants to do through you, $1 Million seems like a rather PALTRY amount, doesn’t it?
1 Chronicles 22:16 – “Of the gold, the silver, and the brass, and the iron, there is no number. Arise therefore, and be doing, and the LORD be with thee.”
This verse says it all perfectly:
- God has UNLIMITED wealth.
- God has BIG works and BIG projects that He wants to see implemented in His Kingdom.
- All that’s missing is someone through which He can work.
- All God is waiting on is for YOU to “Arise therefore, and BE DOING, and the LORD be with thee.”
Just to keep the record straight, God wants to put this money in your life – not so that you can be lifted up in yourself or to try to bring glory to yourself – but to build up His Kingdom and bring Glory to HIS NAME. Sure, King David had nice things and was able to enjoy life. But, he always remembered that most important of all was to Glorify God.
