DAILY DEVOTIONAL READING
Seeking God Brings Prosperity
2 Chro. 26:4-5
Many people started well but while in power, they became corrupted and thus had a regrettable end. This is why you must make God your focus. The Bible says that Uzziah sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God, and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper. The main reason many people run after prosperity so hard is because of the fear of what might happen to them when they retire and what the future holds for their children. Are you caught up in such a web of fear? God will deliver you. Anyway, if you truly fear God, there is no need to fear any other thing; God has the means of settling you. Therefore, seek Him today like Uzziah and He will take care of your fears and make you prosperous.
Point of Emphasis: Don’t put the cart before the horse, seek God first.
Prayer Point: O Lord, give me the grace to know You.
