Have you made some investments that haven’t panned out? Do you wish you could finally see some fruit from your languishing investments?
If you want to pray for your languishing investments, you have Scriptural basis to do so–even if you made a mistake while making those investments!
Isn’t that good news? You have a right to pray for God’s mercy and help with your investments if you are right with Him. Deuteronomy 28:1-8 says:
“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God:
Blessed shall you be in the city, and blessed shall you be in the country.
Blessed shall be the fruit of your body, the produce of your ground and the increase of your herds, the increase of your cattle and the offspring of your flocks.
Blessed shall be your basket and your kneading bowl.
Blessed shall you be when you come in, and blessed shall you be when you go out.
The Lord will cause your enemies who rise against you to be defeated before your face; they shall come out against you one way and flee before you seven ways.
The Lord will command the blessing on you in your storehouses and in all to which you set your hand, and He will bless you in the land which the Lord your God is giving you.”
When God spoke these promises, He was talking to people in an agrarian society. Their flocks and herds were their business. These people were shepherds and cattlemen/cattlewomen. Their animals were their investments! And God promised to bless their investments.
God will even rescue you if you made a bad investment.
Romans 8:28 says, “And we know that all things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” ALL things. That means the things you’ve done right, the things you’ve done wrong, and the things you thought you did right but may have done wrong anyway. ALL THINGS work together for those who love God and are called according to His purpose.
Do you love Him? Are you called according to His purpose?
If so, then you have the right to ask God for His help–and to receive what you’re asking for.
It doesn’t matter if your investment was a good investment or a bad investment. If your investment hasn’t yet worked for your good, God’s Word says that He will work it out for your good. His Word also says that, if you’re obeying Him, then He will bless your investments and ALL the work of your hand. You’ll be blessed coming in, blessed going out, and blessed no matter what you do.
Do you have the faith to believe that? Are you willing to receive God’s mercy, casting shame aside?
If you’ve made an investment that hasn’t panned out, the enemy will lie to you. He’ll tell you that you should have known better. He’ll tell you that you were stupid, that you were fooled, that you don’t deserve to be rescued.
But those are lies. All lies.
MY GOD says that He will work ALL things out for your good. MY GOD says to speak life into dead things. MY GOD says to speak to the four winds and command the breath of God to come into the slain ones.
I believe you can do that too. God is so GOOD in every way that, yes, He wants to honor you, help you, and redeem your life, no matter whether you’ve made any bad decisions or not. Whether your investments have been good or bad, they’re all under the blood of Jesus. The beasts of the forest and the cattle on a thousand hills belong to God, as does everything else in heaven and earth. So it’s a little thing to Him to help you and rescue your languishing investments.
Long story short, God wants to bring you profit.
