Kingdom Wealth as Spiritual Currency

Matthew 6:33-34 But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.

It is important for Christians to understand that “Kingdom wealth” is oftentimes experienced in the form of spiritual currency which is given to us as a token in place of that which we are willing to surrender unto the Lord. Prioritizing the Kingdom of God over the kingdom of the world is the gateway to this treasure.

This currency is most profitably redeemed as an increase in anointing accompanied by increased authority within both the kingdom of man and the Kingdom of God.

Kingdom wealth is not something to be hoarded and kept in reserve for an anticipated time of trouble. It is, instead, an entirely fluid spiritual currency that is provided to believers through their willingness to prioritize the immediate will of God for their lives.

Prioritizing the immediate will of God for our lives frequently involves a sacrifice of self-denial through which the storehouses of heaven are opened and the wealth of the Kingdom is both wonderfully and disproportionately allotted in favor of the believer.

This heavenly treasure of increased anointing and authority must then be utilized daily as the Spirit gives inspiration. It is for each day alone, just as manna was given to the Israelites in the wilderness. Manna represented a total dependence upon God from one moment to another in the Israelite’s lives. So it is for us today. If we attempt to store up the manna of our spiritual currency for future needs it will only grow foul and wormy, for it is meant to be spent in its entirety as we follow the immediate will of the Lord for each and every day.

More will be provided us tomorrow.

Mathew 6:19-21 “Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moths and vermin destroy, and where thieves break in and steal. But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moths and vermin do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.

Perspective

Why doesn’t God do what we think He should do based on our understanding of the Word?

No matter how biblically knowledgeable we may be, it will inevitably be the case that we are viewing every situation from a very limited perspective. We are finite beings. Therefore, we will never be able to take into full account every aspect and attribute of our infinite God regarding any situation. This is why it can be so difficult for us in certain situations to understand why God doesn’t act according to the way we believe He should. We are always seeing the situation from our limited perception while God is always seeing it from a perfectly balanced and undivided perspective.

God is One. He cannot at any given time, act from one of His attributes while the rest remain inactive. All that God does, must at all times be in unity with all that God is. Everything about God is always in perfect balance. For example: Since there can be no conflict within the attributes of God, justice must always be entirely present with mercy and love must always be entirely present in judgment.  In fact, everything about God is always actively present in every situation.

Although we may feel disappointed at times by what we view as a lack of action on His part, we should be comforted to know that everything He does is always for the best of reasons whether or not we can understand it.

Would we really want it any other way?
