A TAKE, ON HIDDEN RICHES
Is. 45:1-3; Lk. 15.
The riches you “don’t have” are “hidden” from you.
Hidden simply means obscured from view i.e. out of sight, unseen, covered, veiled, concealed or buried;
Hidden riches can be due to the following;
- Never discovered or unknown – Hos. 4:6
- Lost – Lk. 15.
- Stolen – Joel 1:1-4; 2:23ff; 1 Sam. 30:1ff.
- Concealed (Not packaged the way we expect them to be) – Neh. 4:1-4.
- Destroyed – Jn. 10:10.
Mystery, Misery, Mastery and Merry – Hos. 4:6ff; Prov. 24:12-14.
- When something is hidden or missing it provokes or produces mystery.
- Mystery leads to miseries.
- Every misery is the result of a mystery.
- Mountains (miseries) are the result of ignorance (mystery).
- When you discover the secret to a mystery you gain mastery
- Once you have mastery you will have merry.
- Merry is the opposite of misery.
- Discovery is the mightiest key to being merry – Lk. 15.
- Discovery unlocks hidden things.
Embracing hidden riches involves discovering and mastering certain laws;
- The Law of the right Potential/Power (Prayer and Anointing) – In times of financial crisis the first thing you do is to locate who you really are and what you really have – Lk. 15; 1 Kg. 17; 2 Kg. 4.
- The Law of the right Placement (Location) – where you are is important.
- The Law of the right Person (Connection) – you need divine connections.
- The Law of the right Privilege (Honour) – this deals with your ability to adapt.
- The Law of the right Principle (Seed-time and Harvest) – this is your practical action.
To discover you need the A.S.K principle – Matt. 7:7ff; Lk. 11:11ff.
- Ask and you shall receive.
- Seek and you shall find.
- Knock and the door shall be opened unto you.
The above principles are governed by the heart of expectation – Mk. 11:24.
Expectation is the key to embracing what is yours no matter where it is hidden – Prov. 23:17ff; Heb. 11:13.
The Power of Expectation is your greatest discovery for hidden riches – Prov. 23:17ff.
Your expectation governs your Passion
- Expectation made the shepherd look for the lost sheep.
- Expectation made the woman look for the lost coin.
- Expectation made the father look for the prodigal son.
Many principles though applied, have failed because of lack of expectation.
- Expectation made the widow give to Elijah – 1 Kg. 17
- Expectation made the widow obey Elisha – 2 Kg. 4.
- Expectation made Bartimaeus shout for Jesus – Mk. 10:46ff.
- Expectation made the centurion go to Jesus – Matt. 8.
- Expectation led Jairus and the woman with an issue of blood to Jesus – Mk. 5.
- Expectation made Jesus go to the cross – Heb. 12:1-3.
God said He would give us hidden riches; believe Him & expect it – Is. 45:3.
The anointing for wealth / abundance releases hidden riches to us – Lk. 4:18; Is. 60:1ff; 2 Kg. 4:1ff; Lk. 5:1ff.
Expect Hidden riches to come and they will come in the form of;
- Raises – Expect raises in your income.
- Bonuses – Expect bonuses.
- Miscellaneous Income – Expect miscellaneous income. If there can be miscellaneous expenditure then of course there can be miscellaneous income, so receive it now.
- Supernatural Debt Cancellations – If God forgave our sins He can forgive our debts.
- Revival of Dormant seeds – Expect resurrection power to work and dry bones rise again
- Supernatural I.C.Is – Expect Ideas, Concepts and Insights from God.
- Uncommon Unstoppable Favour – Expect God to connect you with “important” people.
Your expectation will never be cut off – Prov. 23:17ff; Prov. 24:12-14.
