Riches and Money: God Given or Not?
How to know whether “riches” obtained is from God or not?
“The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich,
and He addeth no sorrow with it.” (Proverbs 10:22 KJV)
This verse determines a classic ‘knowing’ factor which is “if it’s from the LORD, it brings no sorrow or sadness”.
*Note that the “riches” obtained in the ‘wrong way’ (not according to God’s Pure Principles) merit “sorrow” (including ‘restlessness’ or ‘no peace’) as part of its ‘curse’ and we often hear many rich people of this world complaining of ‘this symptom’ (fact).
Remember this sign each time you examine whether you’re in “God or not”,
“There is no peace,” says my God, “for the wicked.” (Isaiah 57:21)
“Many pains (sorrows) come to the wicked, but the one who trusts in the LORD will have faithful love surrounding him.” (Psalm 32:10)
