“And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth” (Luke 12:15).
Some people rate or value themselves according to the amount of money they have. Consequently, they are always punching the calculator to know their financial worth. If your value is according to some money, then you are putting your life at some great risk. How can you subject your life to the uncertain and ever unstable monetary system of the world?
Your true value is the Word of God that is in your spirit. You have to know and have the Word in you. With the Word in you, your success is assured no matter what happens around you. You will stay afloat like the ark of Noah that rose higher and higher as it rained and the waters increased, so that the same water that drowned others, buoyed him up. This shows that the circumstances responsible for sinking people’s businesses and careers today will be for your promotion!
What you need to live victoriously at every count in these latter days is the deposit of God’s Word in your spirit. If you deposit the Word in your spirit, long enough, others will take notice and ask, “What manner of man is this?” Because you will literally be ‘walking on water’. No matter the situation, you stay above only.
Colossians 3:16 says, “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” Your confidence should only rest in how much of the Word of Christ you have in you, not how much money you have in your bank account.
Remember, you become the Word of God that you receive into your spirit, and that is your real value. As you allow the Word to dominate you, it will give you the mentality of a victor such that no matter what happens, you will remain strong and unfazed.
