You Were Not Created Empty

I have meet quite a handful of people who have one negative thing or the other to say about their jobs, some others don't even have the jobs at all. For so many people the ability to make and retain wealth seem an impossible task, and yet the Bible says money answers all things. And so without a decent means of livelihood, so many people have resorted to doing insane things in order to meet up with the financial demands on their lives. 
In the book of Deuteronomy 8:18, Moses declared that it is God that gives us the ability to make wealth, and so I wondered that will God really give some the ability to make wealth and not give others? If God is not a partial God, then there is a need to find out why some are able to produce wealth while others are still finding it rather difficult to carry on that task successfully.
In my search for answers to this assumed imbalance I made some discoveries that is worth sharing. The first thing I discovered is that No Man Was Created by God Empty. Paul talking about spiritual gifts in the book of 1 Corinthians 12:4-6 says there are different kind of gifts all from the same God and that it is the same God that works all of them in all men. He didn't say some men, but all men. One thing to note is that these gifts given by God is not just limited spiritual gifts alone, but that all gifts given by God designed to give man the ability to make wealth has been given to all men.
Proverbs 18:16 says "A man's gift makes room for him, And brings him before great men." (NKJV) That tells me that the gift of God given to all men is design to make room for him and bring him before great men. This is a confirmation of the declaration of Moses in Deuteronomy 8:18 that it is the Lord that gives us the ability to make wealth. And so as a man created by God, you have residing within you the ability to make wealth deposited in you at the time of your creation. That gift has been given to all men.
In order to have an example of what I am talking about lets take a look at Exodus 31:1-6, this passage follows after when the Lord gave Moses the details for constructing the Tabernacle. When the Lord was finished with giving the construction details, He told Moses that He had set a man aside to do the job, Exodus 31:2-5 says "See I have chosen Bezalel son Uri, the son of Hur, of the tribe of Judah, and I have filled him with the Spirit of God,with skill, ability and knowledge in all kinds of craft-to make artistic designs for work in gold, silver and bronze, to cut stones, to work in wood, and to engage in all kinds of craftmanship." So that tells us that the gift of God are not limited to spiritual gifts and they are given to all men in different aspects of life. Moses was given the skill, ability and knowledge to lead, but Bezalel was given the skill, ability and knowledge in craftmanship. Yet some been blessed with the gift of good voice, while others have been given the gift to heal. Diverse gifts all from the same God for different assignment in life.
I have heard so much about the man called Ben Carson, I have seen but yet to read his book "the gifted hands," but when I heard he was the first surgeon to separate twins joined together from birth a thought came to my mind. I wondered why God will create and join twins from birth? He had created and brought to this world millions of twins that were not joined, some never even looked like each other, there are twins with different sex gender, some other sets will come with one tall while the other is short and some will have different complexion entirely, while one is fair the other is dark. But this same God created some twins joined together. And so the gift He had placed in the life of this man Ben Carson was activated and brought into action in order to meet with the need in the lives of these joined twins.
There is a need in the world that your gift is designed to meet. You have something locked inside of you that is designed to bring you to prominence and birth in you the ability to make wealth.In Nigeria there is a package of sachet water sold around, someone came up with that idea and it has well satisfied the thirst of millions of low income citizens of Nigeria and created wealth for the inventor. We all have a gift that is designed to move us out of financial stagnation that God had placed in us. All that we need is to discover it and run diligently with it. 
In Matthew 26:11, Jesus said the poor will always be among us, while in Deuteronomy 15:4 Moses speaking as a mouthpiece for God declared that in the Land of Promise, there should be no poor among us. There is no contraction in these two Bible passages at all. Moses said there should be no poor; but he didn't say there shall be no poor. That is to say, based on the creation work of God and the gift deposited in the life of man by God there shouldn't be anyone poor. But like the Lord Jesus said there will always be poor people among us because there will always be people too lazy or too ignorant to discover there locked in gifts. There will be people who will not be patient and diligent enough to allow their gift to grow and mature, and there will always be people who have allowed sin to dominate their lives thereby robbing them off their heavenly blessings and so there will always be poor people among us. But based on what God has done and perfected in us there should not be poor people among us. 
You have a right to be successful, in fact you were created by God to be a success, in you resides the ability to make wealth given to you by God. You need to search out your own area of gifting, if you are finding it hard to lay hold of it, then start to pray and the Lord will help you. Do not be included in the category of frustrated beings who are poor among us. Take hold of the blessings of us provided for you before hand, discover your gift and run diligently with it.
