The Lord sends poverty and wealth

God, who is God? Many people have only heard this name and some other works mentioned in the Bible, however, do we really know who God is? The Bible tells us about a God who is absolute, master, King and creator of all things, omnipotent, who knows everything and if we go a little further we realize that our lives depends totally on God.

The Bible says:

7 The Lord sends poverty and wealth;
he humbles and he exalts.

8 He raises the poor from the dust
and lifts the needy from the ash heap;
he seats them with princes
and has them inherit a throne of honor.

“For the foundations of the earth are the Lord’s;
on them he has set the world.
9 He will guard the feet of his faithful servants,
but the wicked will be silenced in the place of darkness.

“It is not by strength that one prevails;

1 Samuel 2:7-9

In these verses we can see part of the things that our God can do. First, the Lord can make us prosper, and so He did with many kings in the Old Testament, but the best example we see with Job, since he was greatly enriched, but we should not have the thought that God wants us to all of us to be rich or that the Christian can not be poor, because we see our beloved apostles suffering great needs and this does not mean that they were in sin.

On the other hand, the Bible also shows us a God who impoverishes and abate and this is also necessary, since there are those who feel very high and God has to knock them out of that cloud so that in this way they understand that the only one deserving of glory is called God.

The truth is that God does what He wants, and God keeps us firm regardless of the circumstances, since He is the founder of all existence and there is nothing impossible for Him.

    • On a world in which most people are unbelievers, whose god is wealth and their master is the Devil, the people of God would be crashed and dead if their father wasn’t the almighty Lord who manages and orders his angels taking care of us.
    The same earth would be destroyed if the almighty God was not careful of his creation.
    The power and the wealth are things too much loved by men and women over this world. Many people look for them and sometimes a lot of damage and unjust things are caused because people want to achieve this goal.
    God’s Word says in 1Timoty 6:9. “But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition”.
    It may be that in the providence of God someone could be a rich man or a rich woman, but I think is better for the people of God wishing this written in Proverbs 30:8-9
    “Remove far from me vanity and lies: give me neither poverty nor riches; feed me with food convenient for me: Lest I be full, and deny you, and say, Who is the LORD? or lest I be poor, and steal, and take the name of my God in vain.
    God be blessed by all his people
