It is really important to God that you be paid well for your labor. God WANTS you to be paid well for your labor.
How do we know? Because His Word says so!
Case in point:
The first 2 photos below are from Deuteronomy 28. Read the passage (or look it up in your Bible) and see how many of God’s promises pertain to increase, money, and results coming in from your labor, your business, and your assets.
Then look at the blessing of the tithe (below), from Malachi 3. Again, see how much of that has to do with guaranteeing and protecting results OF YOUR LABOR.
Malachi 3:8-12 says:
Will a man rob God? Yet you have robbed Me! But you say, ‘In what way have we robbed You?’ In tithes and offerings.
You are cursed with a curse, for you have robbed Me, even this whole nation.
Bring all the tithes into the storehouse, that there may be food in My house, and try Me now in this,” says the Lord of hosts, “If I will not open for you the windows of heaven and pour out for you such blessing that there will not be room enough to receive it.
“And I will rebuke the devourer for your sakes, so that he will not destroy the fruit of your ground, nor shall the vine fail to bear fruit for you in the field,” says the Lord of hosts;
“And all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a delightful land,” says the Lord of hosts” (Malachi 3:8-12).
See how much of that has to do with blessing your work–and bringing you money from your work and investments?
Many other Scriptures promise the same.
Isaiah 62:8-9 comes to mind as well, where God says:
The Lord has sworn by His right hand and by the arm of His strength:
“Surely I will no longer give your grain as food for your enemies; and the sons of the foreigner shall not drink your new wine, for which you have labored.
But those who have gathered it shall eat it, and praise the Lord; those who have brought it together shall drink it in My holy courts.”
God wants you to be compensated, rewarded, and paid WELL for your labor.
He never wants you to work without receiving results. ALWAYS, His promises speak of increase on our investments and on our sweat.
Do you have a revelation about this for yourself? If not, it’s another opportunity for the spirit of poverty to remain in your life. Get a STRONG revelation about this for yourself. Study God’s Word about it until you KNOW THAT YOU KNOW THAT YOU KNOW that Papa wants you to be PAID WELL and PROSPER.
Only then will you be able to pray in faith, and only then will you see these things manifest in your life.
