God is great!
I must take this opportunity to thank our Heavenly Father for the strength and wisdom to set up this platform ‘God is My CEO’ (GIMC) from Him, for Him. He is behind this.
Let me begin by stressing to all of you that ‘prosperity’ is a biblical word. God wants us to prosper. There is a misconception that being a good Christian, you should not be wealthy and when you are wealthy you could not be a good Christian.
When God says in the Bible that you could not serve both Him and money, to my understanding, it is not that you cannot have money. It is that your life can only be God-centred and not money-centred. Father, please grant us the wisdom that we can still be a good Christian and be on the road to prosperity too. Provided that in pursue of prosperity, you remain God-centred. You must understand that all wealth is from Father. We are just care-takers of this wealth and we give back generously to Father to further God’s kingdom. Also, in the wealth creation process have you applied God’s wisdom and ways. For example, question to ask yourself; Have you directly or indirectly harm anyone in the process of wealth building?
Indeed, God want us to prosper. Below are some verses from the Bible to illustrate God’s good intention for us:
“The Lord was with Joseph and he prospered…” Genesis 39:2
(referring to Joshua) “That you may be successful wherever you go” Joshua 1:7
“Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.” Psalm 35:27
“When the righteous prosper the city rejoices.” Proverbs 11:10
“… he who trusts in the Lord will prosper.” Proverbs 28:25
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, ‘Plans to prosper you’ …” Jeremiah 29:11
“He will make you more prosperous …” Deuteronomy 30:5
“The Lord will again delight in you and make you prosperous.” Deuteronomy 30:9
“Whatever he does (the Godly man) prospers.” Psalm 1:3
“He will spend his days in prosperity …” Psalm 25:13
“… a generous man will prosper.” Proverbs 11:25
“Prosperity is the reward of the righteous.” Proverbs 13:21
“Whoever gives heed to instruction prospers.” Proverbs 16:20
“He who trust in the Lord will prosper.” Proverbs 28:25
“… You will be prosperous and successful.” Joshua 1:8
“The Lord will grant you abundant prosperity.” Deuteronomy 28:11
“You will always be at the top, never at the bottom.” Deuteronomy 28:13
“… Your God will make you most prosperous …” Deuteronomy 30:9
“You will be made rich in every way …” II Corinthians 9:11
So in this case, money is never an issue with God. Then what is the issue?
The attitude of having money and the wealth creation process are the issues!
GIMC aims to tackle and educate on these challenges.
Few questions to ask yourself in the pursuit of wealth:
1. Do you know that our wealth is all from God? We are just care-takers?
2. Do we give back to God to help spread his kingdom?
3. Do we contribute to the society to help the needy with God’s wealth?
4. Do we build our wealth in God’s way?
Sad to say that many believers and pre-believers have gone off-track in the process of building wealth. Thus, we have set-up ‘God is My CEO’ (GIMC) to be a platform to educate and promote leadership, entrepreneurship and wealth creation through God’s wisdom.
