This passage is a serious warning to all, particularly those who “have made it in life.” Some wealthy people always abandon God, church services, and religious matters which, in their opinion, will waste their precious time.” Such people are ingrates. Is it everyone who labours that prospers? Psalm 75:6b, a song of Asaph, says “Promotion comes neither from the east, nor from the west nor from the south. But God is the Judge; He puts down one and sets up another.” God told the backslidden Israelites that they would labour and have nothing to show for it!
So if you labour and you have something to show for it do you think it is your power or wisdom? There had been people who prospered at one time and later became very poor. Therefore, if God blesses and promotes you, you should thank Him for it and glue yourself to Him. If you labour diligently and you are still at the lower rung of the ladder or you cannot boast of something reasonable in your bank account or something on the ground as investment, then you should know that something is wrong somewhere. You need to run to God. Pray against devourers, cankerworms, destroyers, etc. Also pay your tithes faithfully.
Some people, (Christians) deceive themselves when they “pay tithes.” They just put something in the tithes envelope and drop it at the altar, rejoicing and dancing that they have paid their tithes! Devourers, destroyers and cankerworms are not far away from people who don’t faithfully pay their tithes. Tithes are 10 per cent of all your earnings and even your time.
Committing sin is another form of rebellion against God. When a person commits a sin, God removes His protection hedges around him or her and Satan is at liberty to sieve the person like wheat. Always be under God’s control and it shall be well with you. Even if you are going through some problems, God will see you through.
Deuteronomy 8:18– “But You shall remember the Lord your God: for it is He that gives yourself power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it this day.”
Lord, don’t allow me to labour in vain in my life. Help me to know and serve You and keep me from all manner of sin in Jesus’ name. Amen.
