Signpost to wealth creation – Part 6
The Procedure For Lasting Wealth Creation
“A good man out of the good treasure of the heart bringeth forth good things and an evil man out of the evil treasure bringeth forth evil things.” Matt. 12:35b.
In other words, if the man is good, he has a good heart and he brings forth good things from his heart. He can’t bring forth good things, if he is not good. Wealth creation is inside out. Before you can have it, you must become it.
Let us consider the word ‘BEHAVE.’ Its two words joined together; ‘BE’-HAVE’. ‘BE’ comes before ‘HAVE’. ‘BE’ is an internal thing while ‘HAVE’ is external. “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee” Prov. 23:7.
“Keep thy heart with all diligence; for out of it are the issues of life.” Prov. 4:23.If you accidentally ‘HAVE’ wealth without ‘Being’ wealthy inside, it will not last. It may likely be a stroke of luck and the chance that you might lose it is high. This is why most of those who win lottery end up coming back to square one.
Jim Rohn said: “If you are given a million Dollar, hurry up and become a millionaire.” If you don’t hurry up to be a millionaire, you may soon lose the million. ‘BE’ is fundamental in the process of your end result in life. First of all, a tree must be good before it can bring forth good fruit. (Matt. 12:33-35).
“Keep vigilant watch over your heart; that’s where life starts.” Prov. 4:23.You have to start thinking like wealthy people think, before you can be wealthy. What you HAVE is determined by how you ‘BE’-‘HAVE.’ You can’t have prosperity, while you ‘BEHAVE’ poverty. Even rich people that act poor, end up being poor. What goes on behind the scene controls the scene. I pray that God will give you the grace to ‘BEcome’ what you desire to ‘HAVE.’
BE’-‘HAVE’ whatever you desire to ‘HAVE.’ Behaviour is influenced majorly by the culture and beliefs of the environment you are coming from. This is why you have to be careful who you closely associate with. You have to make sure you are learning from the right people, who can help you to be the best you can be. An average person relates only with people that he/she is better than. People he/she can learn little or nothing from.
Most people are poor because all the people in their circle are broke and ignorant, with no plan to get better. They don’t know that the only way their lives can get better is to see brighter. You need people that can help you see brighter-Hence become wiser. You need people that will help your mind travel to places it has never been before. A man like David needs to have a man like Jonathan in his circle, as highly anointed as he was; David was only exposed to leading the sheep of his father and writing songs. David had no idea of how things are run in the palace but Jonathan did. You need people that have seen what you have never seen before and been to places you have never been before.
God told Moses to choose a leader from each tribe in Israel to go and spy the land He was taking them. God’s intention was good, but it was perverted in the mind of most of the leaders. God simply wanted them to come back and crossbreed with the people, in order to make the journey faster and easier. God wanted those who have seen the beautiful land, to come back and paint positive picture in the mind of those who have not seen it.“He that walketh with the wise men shall be wise: but a companion of fools shall be destroyed.” Prov. 13:20.
Your beliefs also can affect your behavior – So be careful what you believe.“… According to your Faith be it unto you” (Matt 9:29b).Don’t just pick up any ideology and start believing it until you have proven it. What you believe is what you will become. Your belief-system controls your behaviour and your behaviour eventually affects what you become. Wealth Creation is inside-out, there’s no two ways about it. I pray that God will deliver you from every anti-prosperity behaviour and give you more understanding.
