“Who hath believed our report? and to whom is the arm of the Lord revealed?” (Isaiah 53:1 KJV)
The bible tells us in 2 Kings 4 about a prophet who loved God but died a poor man, leaving huge debt behind. How can this man love the Lord, serve the Lord, reverence the Lord and still die leaving debt and problems for the wife?. How did this happen? How can I serve God with all my heart and still have a problem? There must be a reason. One of the reasons is what you choose to believe. It is dependent on whether you believe or not that God is going to take care of your needs. There are people who believe that they are saved. Yes they are saved but they don’t believe that God can take care of their needs. You have to believe that the same salvation that gave you redemption of your soul is able to give you redemption in your pocket. God cannot go beyond your belief system. If you don’t believe in physical healing, you will be a Christian who is saved but die of sickness and disease.
The prophet thought that all there is to being a believer is to just love God. But God said I will give you the keys of the kingdom. It is not just one key. For instance, in your house one key opens the front door but there are other rooms that also have keys. This man had the key of the fear of God. He loved God but he had no key in order to get out of debt. And so, he died a debtor and left problems for his family. May no one leave problems for you. The Bible says a good man leaves an inheritance for his children’s children. Inheritance is not just about money. One of the inheritances you must leave is to give your children education and give them your God. No matter what it will take you. Let them go anywhere in life, they will never fail.
