Provable Love by Pastor David Ibiyeomie
Topic: Provable Love
The wealthiest man in Bible history, Solomon, had access to unfathomable wealth because of love factor.
1 Kings 3:3 – And Solomon loved the LORD, walking in the statutes of David his father: only he sacrificed and burnt incense in high places. 4 And the king went to Gibeon to sacrifice there; for that was the great high place: a thousand burnt offerings did Solomon offer upon that altar. 5 In Gibeon the LORD appeared to Solomon in a dream by night: and God said, Ask what I shall give thee.
Solomon loved the Lord before he gave.
1 Kings 3:12-13 – Behold, I have done according to thy words: lo, I have given thee a wise and an understanding heart; so that there was none like thee before thee, neither after thee shall any arise like unto thee. And I have also given thee that which thou hast not asked, both riches, and honour: so that there shall not be any among the kings like unto thee all thy days.
Solomon did not ask for riches. So, you don’t ask for true prosperity; you walk into it. You don’t pray for money; you walk into it by loving God.
2 Cor. 8:8 – I speak not by commandment, but by occasion of the forwardness of others, and to prove the sincerity of your love.
Love is provable. The sincerity of your love for God must be proved. If you cannot prove your love for God, then your love is fake. God proved the sincerity of His love for humanity by giving His only begotten son. The sincerity of your love is proved through your giving. Solomon loved the Lord and He gave a thousand burnt offering. Read through the Bible; everywhere God talked about love, there was giving. For God so loved the world that He gave.
Check yourself: you always like to give to the person you truly love. You cannot say you love God and don’t give to Him. It is the depth of your love for God that determines your level of access to His resources.
1 Cor. 13:3 – And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.
When you demonstrate your love in giving, you become a financial sign to your world.
1 Cor. 2:9 – But as it is written, Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God hath prepared for them that love him.
Enter into a frequency of love for God and you will not struggle to prosper. From this day, may God give you a heart for Him! When you seek the kingdom of God first, every other thing including wealth shall be added unto you. When you begin to show love towards God, you will see how He will so bless you that even those who don’t like your face will have no choice but to appreciate God’s hand upon your life. Just have a heart-seated love for God before giving to Him. The moment God sees your heart is set for love, He will give you wealth because He is the one that gives power to make wealth.
Today, I admonish you to sincerely ask the Holy Spirit to put the love of God in your heart. If you have genuinely entered a covenant of love with God, I pray for you today, begin to experience financial signs from now! Between now and the next three months, there will be a proof that God has distinguished you in the name of Jesus-Amen!!!
God bless you
