To understand the flow for a transfer of wealth, there are certain biblical principles you must grasp. King Solomon—the richest man who ever lived—requested wisdom, not wealth. He understood the flow of alignment to receive what God had for him.
- That the Lord was full of resources
- The resources were part of his inheritance
Four Principles for Understanding the Flow for a Transfer of Wealth
First, preparation is everything. You see, when the seed is planted, it can only flourish and grow when the soil is good—full of nutrients. The soil of your heart will determine if the seed grows or dies. To position yourself for a transfer of wealth, your heart must be prepared to receive the seed.
Second, there is a Kingdom reason to position yourself for a transfer of wealth. Wealth creates the ability to fulfill what you are called to do. Do you want to thrive in your divine assignment? Then you must understand that His wealth and abundance will give you that ability. But know this: it is His wealth, not yours.
Third, the Lord is transferring wealth to those who will build His Kingdom, not theirs. He blesses you so that you can bless others.
Fourth, honor is the currency of Heaven. Honor what God honors; this will open doors for you.
Let’s take a look at how King Solomon got into a flow for a transfer of wealth.
Are you ready to build God’s Kingdom? He is looking for those who are prepared to be a vault for His wealth. Allow Him to position you—through His instruction—for a transfer of wealth.
Getting into the Flow for a Transfer of Wealth
Learn from King Solomon
The flow for a transfer of wealth is this: listen, keep, do.
To break this down further, the flow is about…
- Aligning with God
- Honoring each other
- Asking Him to order your steps
This is what King Solomon did, and it set him up to receive more than he asked for from God.
King Solomon had a blessed start to his reign as king. His father, King David, left him with great advantage and a strong kingdom.
“And Solomon spoke to all Israel, to the captains of thousands and of hundreds, to the judges, and to every leader in all Israel, the heads of the fathers’ houses. Then Solomon, and all the assembly with him, went to the high place that was at Gibeon; for the tabernacle of meeting with God was there… And Solomon went up there to the bronze altar before the Lord, which was at the tabernacle of meeting, and offered a thousand burnt offerings on it.”—2 Chronicles 1:2-3, 6
Solomon honored his father. He honored the Lord. He wanted to demonstrate from the beginning of his reign that he would seek God first. And his desire was to lead Israel to do the same. His goal at the beginning of his reign was for the nation to understand the flow… listen, keep, do.
For the Transfer of Wealth… Listen
“On that night God appeared to Solomon, and said to him, ‘Ask! What shall I give you?’ And Solomon said to God: ‘You have shown great mercy to David my father, and have made me king in his place. Now, O Lord God, let Your promise to David my father be established, for You have made me king over a people like the dust of the earth in multitude.’”—2 Chronicles 1:7-9
Solomon listened when God spoke that night but he had also listened to the promises God gave his father, David. He honored his earthly father and his Heavenly Father. Then he asked that God’s promise be established.
Understanding the Malachi 4:6 word is another key to understanding the flow for a transfer of wealth. Listening to God will always lead you to honoring! Getting into this alignment removes the curse of poverty and brings us to a place of healing.
Malachi 4:6 says, “And he will turn the hearts of the fathers to the children, and the hearts of the children to their fathers, lest I come and strike the earth with a curse.”
Solomon first called to God and asked that the Lord’s work in him be done. He didn’t start with a list of items he wanted, or even what he was called to do. He called down the promises made to his father and asked that those be made complete.
Are you calling down your Heavenly Father’s will in Heaven to be done on earth? Are you asking the Lord to finish the work Jesus called the Church to do? Before you do that, you have to listen and know what God’s will is… this is the start of the flow for a transfer of wealth.
For the Transfer of Wealth… Keep
“Now give me wisdom and knowledge, that I may go out and come in before this people; for who can judge this great people of Yours?”—2 Chronicles 1:10
Our prayers should be like Solomon’s… “give me wisdom and knowledge.” In other words, “Keep me focused on You and on what You have called me to do.”
After listening to, acknowledging, and honoring our Father, let us ask Him to keep us so that we can keep our eyes on our assignment. Solomon wasn’t asking God to give him riches or finances. He understood that was already given. He was focused. He was keeping His eyes on the Lord.
We must be aware of the enemy who wants to distract us: distracting our focus and distracting us from our Father. We must follow the flow for a transfer of wealth—listening to God and keeping our eyes focused on Him.
Solomon also understood there was no foolishness in God, “Teach me how to judge…” He had a heart that wanted God’s wisdom so he would lead well. He knew if he didn’t have an anointing of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding from God, that he would be broke and the nation would suffer.
He was keeping in the flow of wisdom, knowledge, and understanding, which created a bank vault for the wealth. He had great compassion for the people of Israel and wanted to keep God at the center of their hearts.
For the Transfer of Wealth… Do
“Then God said to Solomon: ‘Because this was in your heart, and you have not asked riches or wealth or honor or the life of your enemies, nor have you asked long life—but have asked wisdom and knowledge for yourself, that you may judge My people over whom I have made you king—wisdom and knowledge are granted to you; and I will give you riches and wealth and honor, such as none of the kings have had who were before you, nor shall any after you have the like.’”—2 Chronicles 1:11-12
As a result of Solomon being in the flow, he received the transfer of wealth. He was manifesting the leadership of a king. God saw his heart.
God is looking for the work of the Word in your life; this is Hebrews 4:12. He is purifying us, taking us from a selfish nature into a generous nature where we say, “Father God, even if You wake me up in the middle of the night, I’m concerned for Your Kingdom. I’m deciding today to care for Your people.”
Because of wisdom, Solomon was able to move forward and do what God called him to do.
Second Chronicles 1:14 says, “And Solomon gathered chariots and horsemen; he had one thousand four hundred chariots and twelve thousand horsemen, whom he stationed in the chariot cities and with the king in Jerusalem.”
Second Chronicles 2 begins with Solomon “determined to build a temple for the name of the Lord,” and a royal house for himself. He started with God. This put him into alignment.
Cancel the Spirit of Poverty for a Transfer of Wealth
For the last 2,000 years, the spirit of poverty has infiltrated the Body of Christ. Many of us are trying to earn something that is a gift. We are fighting for something that is our inheritance, paying for things that have already been paid for by the blood of Jesus.
As Believers, we need to cancel the spirit of poverty in our lives. We must understand, just as Solomon did, that the abundance of God is a given. He is generous, this is His character. We must stop allowing the spirit of poverty to rob us of our inheritance. We are blessed!
Let us decree Ephesians 2:8-10…
“For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
Let us not boast in ourselves, as that curses the soil of our hearts, not allowing the seed to take root and grow. Rather, let us boast in the Lord. He created us for a purpose. Let us walk in those ways, getting into the flow for a transfer of wealth so that we can do what He has called us to do, honoring Him with every step we take.
