Satan Can’t Stop It

God has promised that the wealth of the wicked (the world) will be transferred into the hands of the righteous:  and satan can’t stop it

“… and the wealth of the sinner is laid up for the just” (Proverbs 13:22).

The Patriarch Abraham is an excellent illustration of this.

From the beginning of God’s dealings with Abraham when He entered into a covenant relationship with him, God prospered him. The transfer of the wealth of the wicked began when Abraham obeyed God, left his own country, and went to Canaan. God told Abraham that He was going to give him the wealth of Canaan (Genesis 13:15). The Promised Land, with all its wealth, did not belong to the Canaanites. The wealth of the wicked was just being stored for the righteous! SATAN CAN’T STOP IT

Later, when there was a great famine in Canaan, Abraham went down to Egypt. You know the familiar story of how he told the Egyptians Sarah was his sister because she was beautiful and he was afraid they would kill him and take her for themselves. Pharaoh lavished gifts upon Abraham because of Sarah. He gave him sheep, oxen, donkeys, camels, and servants (Genesis 12:16).

When the Lord sent plagues upon Pharaoh because of Sarah, Pharaoh sent Abraham and his family out of Egypt. When Abraham left Egypt, he took with him great herds of cattle and other livestock, servants, gold, and silver (Genesis 13:2).

God so blessed Abraham while he was in Egypt that the land where he and his nephew, Lot, settled was not big enough for them and they had to go separate ways (Genesis 13:6). Later, when Lot was taken captive along with all his possessions, Abraham pursued the enemy, rescued Lot, and took back all his belongings plus the spoils of Sodom and Gomorrah. The wealth of the wicked was transferred into Abraham’s hands! SATAN CAN’T STOP IT

Generation after generation, we see this transfer continue. God transferred the wealth of Abimelech, king of the Philistines, to Isaac. While Isaac was living in the land of the Philistines, God poured His blessings upon him. Even during a famine, Isaac sowed seed and reaped one hundredfold in one year (Genesis 26:12-14). God continued to prosper Isaac until King Abimelech told him, “…Move away from us; you have become too powerful for us” (Genesis 26:16 NIV).

God transferred Laban’s wealth to Jacob (Genesis 31:6-9). Jacob served Laban fourteen years for Laban’s daughters, Rachel and Leah. He served an additional six years for his cattle. Laban changed his wages ten times, but God poured out His blessings and prospered Jacob.

Beloved, God has declared that you will prosper. There is nothing Satan can do to stop it.

Make this declaration:

I will prosper! God has declared it and there is nothing Satan can do to stop it!
