CICM Moment: “How to be Abased and How to Abound”

Although God wants us to prosper, He also wants us to beware of the power of deception that comes with riches and wealth. “As for what was sown among thorns, this is he who hears the Word, but the cares of the world and the pleasure and delight and glamour and deceitfulness of riches choke and suffocate the Word, and it yields no fruit” (Matthew 13:22 Amp). The problem with deception is that the person being deceived does not know that he or she is deceived. That’s what being deceived means! That is why we should be praying for Christians whom God chooses to bless with wealth, rather than judging or criticizing them. Wealthy people need prayer! In fact, we all should be praying for one another, until we can all say what Apostle Paul said: “I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me” (Phil 4:12-13 KJV).
