Deuteronomy 8:18 – “And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.” 

Money is here today, gone tomorrow. But wealth is abundant and it’s generational. Jehovah Jireh is your God who provides all you need. He freely gives and trusts you to steward what He has given you so it can become wealth you can pass on. Even if your bank account is in the red, the Lord wants to give you more and make you a blessing to others. King Jesus desires to increase your territory and entrust you with His wealth. Are you trustworthy?

Declaration: I can be trusted with worldly wealth and true riches. 


I remember the late John Belushi of The Blues Brothers standing on the edge of a stage in a white-hot spotlight singing, “I’m a soul man!” As much as I love that song, I don’t sing it anymore and I’ll tell you why: it’s a bad testimony.

You see, you and I are not supposed to be soul men and women. We are supposed to be “Spirit of God” men and women.

And so it is written, the first man, Adam, was made a living soul; the last Adam was made a quickening spirit. – 1 Corinthians 15:44-45

The last Adam was, of course, Jesus.

People say the difference between an animal and a person is that an animal doesn’t have a soul. This is wrong. Animals have souls just like we do. According to the Bible, the soul is the thinking realm, and get this–it is animalistic in nature. Let’s just call it what it is: the beast within.

A beast has a mind, will and emotions. It goes after what it wants and runs away from what it’s scared of. It meets its impulses by whatever opportunity comes its way. The word calls this a brute beast.

But these speak evil of those things which they know not: but what they know naturally, as brute beasts, in those things they corrupt themselves. – Jude 1:10

What makes someone like an animal? What they do and don’t know naturally. Look at what Peter says on the subject:

But these, like natural brute beasts made to be caught and destroyed, speak evil of things they do not understand, and will utterly perish in their own corruption.2 Peter 2:12

The bottom line is this: the soul is your thought life; your emotions and we know they are liars. According to these verses, beasts will be caught in the snare and put into bondage, often by their own corruption. Most people, even believers, don’t understand this.

So, where does Jesus operate in you? The Bible tells us it’s in your Spirit, not your soul. Know the difference and don’t listen to your head or your heart. Call on the Spirit of Truth within you so you will not be a soul man.
