Question

Will I be blessed with a big cheque tomorrow?

Answer

Thank you for getting in touch with us with your interesting question. If you are looking for a prophetic answer, we cannot offer that to you. Instead, we can offer Bible teaching relevant to the issues you are thinking about. I hope that this teaching will help you.

The Bible promises that God’s children are in His care and that He will meet their needs.

And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19)

These words were written to Christians who gave money to help the apostle Paul, even though they were poor themselves, as you can see when we read the whole chapter. They were God’s children.

I wonder have you received the Lord Jesus Christ into your life and become a child of God?

But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name: who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God. (John 1:12)

Jesus died for you, so that your sins could be forgiven and you could know God.

"For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)

When you become God’s child, then all His promises apply to you.

For all the promises of God in Him are Yes, and in Him Amen, to the glory of God through us. (2 Corinthians 1:20)

You might remember the non-Christian story of Aladdin, who found a lamp. In the lamp was a genie (a spirit) and when he rubbed the lamp, the genie appeared and granted him wishes. God is not like the genie in the lamp. He does not give us whatever we want just because we want it. He gives us what will be best for us.

Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. (2 Corinthians 7:1)

We need to pursue holiness, not money. When we make God more important than money, the Bible says we are laying up treasure in Heaven.

"Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also". (Matthew 6:19-21)

Life can be very difficult and worrying when we do not have enough money. However, we do not need to worry, for God will meet our needs.

"Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about its own things. Sufficient for the day is its own trouble" (Matthew 6:31-34)

It is very hard not to worry when we haven’t got enough to feed our families or pay our bills. Sometimes, too, we have to wait before God’s provision arrives. We must learn to wait humbly and put our trust in God. This is not easy, but it makes us into mature Christians. Then God can exalt and bless us.

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. (1 Peter 5:6-7)

I hope that this answer has helped you. We are praying for you that God will meet your needs and bless you with both holiness and prosperity. It is very unlikely that you will receive a large cheque tomorrow, but as you learn to trust God and do His will, He will bless you in ways you have not imagined.
