Money Is Not The Currency Of Heaven

“Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.
~Isaiah 55:1

“He said to me: It is done. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End. To him who is thirsty I will give to drink without cost from the spring of the water of life.”
~Revelation 21:6

Money is not the currency of heaven. You don’t use money to buy anything from God. The currency of heaven is value; it’s desire. Money is not a currency of the spirit realm, so you can’t exchange money for anything in the realm of the spirit.

However, it is important that you understand that you use money to express your value to God – and even to man – thereby revealing where your heart really lies. It’s a way of expressing your desire. Your use of money can be an avenue for revealing your desire for God.

Jesus said:

“So if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches?”
~Luke 16:11

Jesus made a distinction between worldly wealth and true riches – that means they’re not the same. There is worldly wealth, and then there are true riches. True riches are what God’s word refers to as “good things”.

“For the Lord God is a sun and shield; the Lord bestows favour and honour; no good thing does he withhold from those whose walk is blameless.
~Psalm 84:11

God does not withhold true riches from the righteous who are generous and lend freely. However, if you have not been trustworthy with handling worldly wealth, God will withhold true riches from you. God says, “If I watch your use of worldly ephemeral wealth and I don’t see faithfulness in it, I don’t see love in it, I don’t see submission in your use of money, why would I entrust true riches to you? Why would I give you the things that really matter? Why would I give you the things that really last?”

For instance a prudent wife is a gift from God.

“Houses and wealth are inherited from parents, but a prudent wife is a gift from the Lord.”
~Proverbs 19:14

A caring husband too is a gift from God. These things can’t just be bought with money. Another example is true friendship. A lot of folks try to buy genuine friendship with money. You can’t buy friendship with money.

Use worldly wealth to express your value for God, and He will commit true riches to you.
Amen.

Memory Verse:
Isaiah 55:1
“Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.

Prayer:
Father, help me to be faithful in handling worldly wealth. May I be trusted to handle true riches, in Jesus’ name.
Amen.
