For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that,though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor,that ye through his poverty might be rich (2 Corinthians 8:9).
This verse of scripture is quite instructive; it says although Jesus was rich, He made Himself poor, so that you, through His poverty might be made rich. Someone may say, “Oh yes! He became poor for us spiritually”; no.Paul wasn’t talking about spiritual riches and spiritual poverty,because Jesus never became any less the Son of God in His
physical body than He was in the bosom of the Father. When you study the entire chapter in context, you’d understand that He was talking about financial and material prosperity.For our sake, He laid down His reputation, His riches,His wealth; He laid down everything and identified Himself with us, and took our place. He became us. Everything He
did was for your sake. He wasn’t poor, but He became poor for your sake. In the same way, you weren’t rich, but now
through Him, you’ve been made rich, just as in Him you’ve been made righteous. Until you understand this revelation,you’ll never enter into your wealthy place in God.Your trust shouldn’t be in the government, the society or in the job that you do. Your trust shouldn’t be in any banking reform. Your trust has to be in the Word; in whom and what Christ has made you. He’s fulfilled His part. He said,“…Lo, I come (in the volume of the book it is written of me,)to do thy will, O God” (Hebrews 10:7). He already became
poor so that you, through His poverty, might become rich.Now, you’re to step into what He’s done for you and made
you. Believe in what He’s done for you, and take advantage of it.
Dear Father, I’m forever grateful
for my glorious inheritance in
Christ! As an heir of prosperity, I
live to bless others and lift them
out of the thraldom of lack
through the power of your Spirit
that’s at work in me. I walk in
experience undeniable success in
all that I do, in Jesus’ Name.
3 John 1:2
