The stories of legendary people fascinate me. One of the people I have been researching recently is Cyrus the Great. The bible talked about him in Isaiah 45:1-4 over 200 years before he was born. Cyrus the Great was king over the largest empire the world had ever seen, the conquests of Alexander the Great and Genghis Khan are child's play compared to the empire Cyrus the Great ruled over.
Cyrus the Great was an heathen king but he recognized and acknowledged that it was God who made all his conquests possible. In Ezra 1:1 it was recorded that in his FIRST year as king, Cyrus the Great said " The Lord the God of heaven has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and he has appointed me to build a temple for Him at Jerusalem in Judah and build the temple of the LORD, the God of Israel, the God who is in Jerusalem and may their God be with them"
I have come to realize that people who are very wealthy are blessed for a purpose, there is a BECAUSE for their wealth. God or the devil gave them wealth for a reason.
Isaiah 45:4 says about Cyrus;
4“And why have I called you for this work?
Why did I call you by name when you did not know me?
It is FOR THE SAKE of Jacob my servant,
Cyrus the Great was blessed BECAUSE he was to rebuild the temple at Jerusalem. His wealth had a divine mandate.
Let me tell you a secret, if you align your business with a divine agenda you CANNOT fail! If you tithe from your business or your salary you can NEVER be disgraced on that job. If your family cares for the needy and the poor you can NEVER lack!
This is the secret of very exceptional people, find a project that God is passionate about and key into it!
One of the secrets of Sapphire Scents is that we tithe from every kobo and there is absolutely no money that we cannot sow. If I am about to buy goods from the Middle East or I am about to clear cargo and the Holy Spirit says "go and drop that money on the altar" I obey instantly because I know that it is God who sent the money in the first place.
Align your gifts, talents and business with God and you will never go down.
Please share so that others can be blessed as you have been blessed.
If you have not given your life to Jesus say after me " Dear Jesus, I come to You today, I believe You died on the cross and on the 3rd day You rose from the dead and You are now seated at the right hand of the Father. I accept You as my Lord and Savior and I ask that You will dwell in me from now on.
