Ruth 2:12, The LORD repay your work with full reward given you by the Lord God of Israel, under whose wings you have come for refuge. God does not hate rich people or does not want people to be rich. God wants rich people to treat employees fairly and well as Boaz did and provided for Ruth. Boaz left food for the poor and strangers to harvest according to God’s Biblical instructions. In Joel 2:25, God promises to repay you all the years you have toiled but not paid for. This proves God sees your your hard work which may literally cost an arm and a leg. God knows how you feel when your wealth, assets or inheritance taken over by undeserving, unthankful, ungrateful wasters. In Malachi 3:5 God watches so reassures those workers trodden upon. God sees tears of unpaid wages controlled by privileged few. The wicked take advantage of widows, orphans, fatherless and strangers. God remembers surely pays past generation perpetrators reward you in Jesus Name.Matthew 19:16-26 says Jesus told a rich lawyer who thinks he is a “good” person and law-abiding citizen and everything was alright. Jesus warned him to change but he refused to change from a lavish extravagant ways. With no regard for fellow human beings who worked for him. But all the silver and gold belong to God, plus a cattle on 1000 hills. In Luke 12:13-21 is story of rich man bragging about his wealth and plans to build bigger barns to hoard his goods while depriving his workers. He didn’t regard God as source of his riches or say if God wills, he will expand his business. God was very angry because he exploited others for selfish gains. In Luke 16:19-31, another rich man had it all but due to greed he deprived the poor to enrich himself He did not remember God hates greedy selfish people who think only they exclusively deserve all silver and gold which belongs to God. They forget they are mere stewards and employees in charge providing equally for others like themselves. In James:1-5 God warns those oppressing others to change to pay fairly because will punish if they do not repent. God sees pain, grief, sorrow, lack poverty provide in Jesus Name. 1 Kings 21 King Ahab’s greedy tantrums usurped Naboth’s vineyard which was inherited and not for sale because it belonged to the family to pass on to the next generations. Jezebel fasted and prayed with her accomplices then lied about Naboth’s vine taken by greedy the falsely accuse cursing God and king. The love of money is the root of all evil. So they stoned Naboth to death and then king took Naboth’s vineyard because it was near his palace for a vegetable garden. God sees it all and sent prophet Elijah to punish their evil wicked deeds that disaster will come upon them so dogs and birds will eat them in the city and in country. Ahab humbled himself and prayed to God for mercy so God forgave deferred Ahab’s punishment to his descendants and future generations. Jezebel fell through window, died and eaten by dogs. Families inherit family curses which they may not understand so believers need pray to God to reveal to the any generational curses they may be dealing with and plead the Blood of Jesus, God’s mercy grace for forgiveness in Jesus Name provide all you need. In Revelation 19:11-20 God plans to deal with various oppressors in Jesus Name. Storms destroy all you own including the priceless sentimental valuables. And if you barely keep a roof over your head nowhere to lay your head God will give you mansions. God cares more despite tragedies begin to pick yourself up from problem looming on horizon. Wonder how long to cope with traumatic event. Ruth 2-4, Naomi and Ruth experienced tragedies in past but favoured by God. Divine connection to Boaz generous and kind hearted rich man did right thing and married Ruth. Ruth is the mother of Obed the father of Jesse the father of king David’s family from which the King of kings Jesus Christ descended.God blessed Abraham, David, Solomon and other men and women in the Bible with wealth and riches, including those who built temples for God sponsored the Gospel of Jesus Christ during His ministry on earth and continue to do so today. There are billions of wonderfully rich people who are kind, generous, sponsor many charities and thanks to them many have been helped over the years. God demands those like greedy rich in the Bible, to stop throwing perfectly good food and things away to bless all His creation because the cattle on thousands hills and earth belongs to God. It does not make sense while millions are dying daily from starvation and hunger. Perhaps you are the first to turn up on every occasion and last to leave; dedicated, loyal, faithful, reliable, dependable trustworthy person of good integrity generous in time or resources.Seems more devoted to God and people more it appears troubles increase. You have do endless amazing things to help various people so few express gratitude to encourage your faith. Others insult or become enemies so life unfortunately is so because hurting people hurt others. Put Confidence in God your kindness is unparalleled because you firmly believe God ULTIMATELY REWARDS all. Maybe entrepreneur with companies business, employed millions or thousands yet lost it all in credit crunch, feel you let others down and beating yourself up. On the other hand, started business not doing well going down drain. You do not know whom to turn to because its you people turn to. Turn to God and Trust in Jesus. Or it was your harvests wiped out by floods, drought or pestilence. You hardly have anything to eat today so dread thinking about the future. God is in control and will make a way where there seems to be no way. In Luke 5:5, Jesus saw the people struggling to make ends meet in vain. They toiled hard but caught no fish, it almost sounds like the story of your life or ministry whereby your own efforts have resulted in nothing. Jesus has a keen interest in your efforts and wants you to help you launch into the deep by changing your method, strategies, ideas, resources and accomplishing your goals. To achieve your ambitions, you need to trust God again, believe Christ has your best interest at heart, and will only do you good. At times, so many things happen you question your ability and judgement so wants to know what to do next. You feel unprepared to take risks because your track record so far is not impressive. Well, we have a Saviour who measures you differently.
Man looks on outward beauty, status, qualifications, attainments, accolades, bank balance to size you up. God gives the surprising Unmerited Divine Favour Unexpected Surprises you can never achieve by your own strength. God will repay you in His Timing according to His Plans and Purposes for your life in Jesus Name. He will!!! Take comfort in knowing that you did all unto the Lord God Himself. You were the faithful conduit of blessings to reach out to others although may not feel highly valued or appreciated. God sees and knows it all so will definitely reward you blessing beyond a thousand generation. Maybe as slave descendant waiting for justice, and a compensation, deals with injustice trauma of racism discrimination, economic slavery. God sees it all and so seek His mercy, grace, favour. Ask God for power to create wealth although you feel exploited and worked hard enough already. God will supernaturally provide for you if you believe Him to do so and receive blessings in Jesus Name.
