How to Get Christian Wealth

Peaceful wealth comes from the LORD and everyone wants to be rich! Why is it impossible for everyone to be wealthy? Why is it difficult to lay your hands on the master key that opens the doors of money? You may have questions and I also have questions too. But it does not change the fact that riches comes from the LORD.  

The number of millionaires (in U.S. dollar terms) globally reached 19.6 million, and their cumulative wealth stood at US$74 trillion, according to the World Wealth Report 2020 released by Capgemini, a Paris-based consultancy and technology services firm.

New World Wealth also recorded that not less than 56.2% identified themselves as Christian. I was not surprised about this statistic because it is the fulfilment of God’s covenant to His children.

We measure wealth based on asset and cash, but God’s wealth is not limited to cash and material things. The LORD’s wealth for you also include; salvation, good health, joy, peace, gift of the Holy Spirit and eternal enjoyment in Heaven.

4 Powerful Ways to Get Wealth from the LORD

1. Serve God Faithfully

If you devote your time and strength to obey God’s will, then you will enjoy God’s wealth. Abraham was wealthy in his generation because he obeyed the LORD.

“…the LORD appeared to Abram and said to him, “I am Almighty God; walk before Me and be blameless. And I will make My covenant between Me and you, and will multiply you exceedingly.” Genesis 17:1-2 

Isaac became the millionaire of his time because he obeyed God. “There was a famine in the land… Then the LORD appeared to him and said: “Do not go down to Egypt; live in the land of which I shall tell you…

Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the LORD blessed him. The man began to prosper, and continued prospering until he became very prosperous.” Genesis 26:1-13

2. Practice Your Talents Daily

When you find yourself in an unwanted circumstance, don’t hesitate to continually invest your talents to the needy. Joseph did not blame God for his wretched life in prison; rather he continued to make use of his spiritual gift (wealth) to help the needy. His stewardship and patience made him a rich man at the end of the day. Genesis 41:41-45

Do not under-estimate the talents God gave to you. The rightful usage of your spiritual gifts can be the potential discovery of your wealth.

3. Solemn Prayers to the LORD

King Solomon acquired wealth from God by praying for wisdom to rule the land. The Lord was highly impressed with his worship and sacrifices. The Lord answered king Solomon’s prayers and gave him riches as well.

“…behold, I have done according to your words; see, I have given you a wise and understanding heart, so that there has not been anyone like you before you, nor shall any like you arise after you… And I have also given you what you have not asked: both riches and honor, so that there shall not be anyone like you among the kings all your days.” (First King chapter 3 verse 10 to 13)

4. Seek the Kingdom of God

The Lord will never allow you suffer, if you obey the instructions of Jesus Christ. Matthew chapter 6 verse 31 to 33 says: “Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ “For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you.”

Is it a Sin to become Wealthy?

I searched through the Bible and couldn’t find any verse that says a rich person is a sinner, but the worship of wealth is taboo!  The Old Testament has many references to material wealth while the New Testament emphasized on spiritual wealth. So, you have to find the balance!

God made some people rich so that they can take care of the poor. He instructed the rich Israelites to help the poor; For the poor will never cease from the land; therefore I command you, saying, ‘You shall open your hand wide to your brother, to your poor and your needy, in your land.’” Deuteronomy15:11

When the rich man called Zacchaeus gave his life to Jesus Christ, he shared his wealth with the poor.

“… Now behold, there was a man named Zacchaeus who was a chief tax collector, and he was rich… Then Zacchaeus stood and said to the Lord, “Look, Lord, I give half of my goods to the poor; and if I have taken anything from anyone by false accusation, I restore fourfold.”

And Jesus said to him, “Today salvation has come to this house, because he also is a son of Abraham; “for the Son of Man has come to seek and to save that which was lost.” Luke 19:1-10

Wealth becomes sinful if it is acquired through occult or dubious way


Wealth comes from God. It is wise to spend your riches according to God’s instructions and do not invest your wealth in the debauchery of this world.
