Another very dangerous destiny killer is the love of money. One thing that you must realise from the get-go is that having a lot of money is not a God-given purpose. Being in a position where you are in control of wealth is equally not an end in itself. It is what you do with the resources God has put in your care that will determine if you will fulfill your destiny.

Joseph said his destiny was to keep people alive when the time of famine came. Becoming the Prime minister of Egypt and being in control of the wealth of the nation were merely the means God used to achieve His purpose for Joseph.

This is clear from Josephs statement in Genesis 50:20 “But as for you, ye thought evil against me; but God meant it unto good, to bring to pass, as it is this day, to save much people alive.”

If you put your focus on money, you will lose the real purpose of God for your life. Judas Iscariot was Jesus accountant; he was so focused on the money that he did not see all the other things he could get from Jesus Christ.

While Peter was being prepared to lead the Church and John was staying close to the Masters chest and hearing His secrets, Judas was after money. He got the money but lost his destiny, along with his soul. If you just follow the plan of God for your life and take your focus away from money, you will fulfil destiny and have plenty of money too.

When I became General Overseer, I was bothered about how I would take care of my family since I was leaving my job, so I thought of doing a business by the side, but God told me not to. Honestly, I was worried, but because my focus was not on money but His will, I obeyed.

Today, by Gods grace, He has blessed me with more money than I would have had if I had gone into that business. Money is good, but the love of money will hinder Gods plan for your life. Set your focus on God and His purpose for your life.

PRAYER POINT: Father, please cleanse my heart from any love that I have for money, in Jesus’ name.
