No Christian is destined for a life of poverty, sickness or misery.

Christ declares that those who follow Him shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life. (Jn 8:12). The light is to illuminate the affected life and ensure that nothing is missing therein. (Lk15: 8).

In the life of every Christian who is poor, sick or miserable, there is a missing thing.


Deut 8: 18

But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth

God gives you the power to get wealth. So, if wealth is missing in your life, you go to Him to locate it.


Lk 19: 5-10

And when Jesus came to the place, he looked up, and saw him, and said unto him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house. And he made haste, and came down, and received him joyfully.

God does not hate anyone. Although He hates sin, He loves sinners and calls them to repentance.

Jesus looked up and saw what He was looking for- a missing man.


When He saw Zacchaeus up on the tree, He called to him, Zacchaeus, make haste, and come down; for to day I must abide at thy house.

When Zacchaeus heard the call, he made haste, and came down, and received him [Jesus] joyfully.


And when they saw it, they all murmured, saying, That he was gone to be guest with a man that is a sinner.


They did not see ‘him’; they saw ‘it’.


The people saw a Man looking for a man. They saw a Man locating and calling a sinner to Himself, and it caught their attention.

When you call out to the missing thing in your life, when you locate your destiny helpers and they come to you, men will see ‘it’.


And Zacchaeus stood, and said unto the Lord: Behold, Lord, the half of my goods I give to the poor; and if I have taken any thing from any man by false accusation, I restore him fourfold.


It is not possible for a missing man to do the right thing while he is still on a ‘missing’ journey. Therefore, Zacchaeus’ promise of restitution was simply a display of religious zeal without knowledge, because he was not yet saved.

Zacchaeus did not have the capacity to say the right thing because he was still lost, and his assumption, that he was called by Jesus so that he would make restitution, was wrong.

He was called because he was a missing man.


And Jesus said unto him, This day is salvation come to this house, forsomuch as he also is a son of Abraham. For the Son of man is come to seek and to save that which was lost.


Salvation precedes good works.


Jesus clarifies the matter: ‘Zacchaeus, salvation comes to your house this day, not because of what you have promised to do, but because you are also a son of Abraham.’


This was Christ’ claim on Zacchaeus: he was a son of Abraham, and therefore a part of Jesus. So, when Jesus located him up on that tree, He did not hesitate to call him to Himself.


This is your job as well in Christ. Like Jesus, you are to seek and save that (in your destiny, household and world) which was lost. You are to locate whatever is missing in life- the absence of which is making the journey of your life miserable- and call it to yourself.


Jesus, led by the Holy Ghost, looked up and saw a man on the tree; when He saw him, He believed that this was a missing man; and with His mouth, He called the missing man to Himself.


This is how you save; by seeing it, believing it is yours, and declaring it- you see the missing thing, you believe it is a part of you, and you call it to yourself.


You say to the missing thing, ‘you belong to me. Make haste and come to me’.


Let this inform your approach to the Word. Come to the Word to seek out the missing thing in your life- the missing health, wealth, power, progress, promotion, favour, peace- and locate it. When you do, believe that it is for you as much as it is for any other Christian, and call it to yourself; and it shall respond.

Do not for any reason believe the lie that the thing is meant for others, but not for you.


Eccl 5: 9-10

Moreover the profit of the earth is for all: the king himself is served by the field.


Consider this carefully: the profit of the earth- whole world- is for ALL.

The profit of this nation is for all.

That includes you. There is no tenable excuse for living in, and remaining in poverty, because God has declared you a candidate for financial prosperity.


He that loveth silver shall not be satisfied with silver; nor he that loveth abundance with increase: this is also vanity.


However, a man’s focus will greatly determine whether he prospers financially or not.


You love God, not money.

When a man loves money, he will not get it.

Love God and you will be satisfied with riches and abundance. It is to the man who seeks first His kingdom and righteousness that riches and abundance will come.


Eccl 5: 13-15, 19

There is a sore evil which I have seen under the sun, namely, riches kept for the owners thereof to their hurt. But those riches perish by evil travail: and he begetteth a son, and there is nothing in his hand.


The preacher calls this a terrible evil.


A man desires to speak with the confidence and fluency of the educated; a mother deprives herself of the basic needs so that her children can have the education and opportunities she did not.


These are men and women who were destined to be educated, but something kept them from their destinies.

They were deprived of their destinies because the enemy found a way to make their parents incapable...


It is a sore evil when a man’s desire and labour are rendered useless because his riches have been kept, for him, to his own hurt.


We have already established that God gives the power to get wealth. Therefore, to everyone called by God, there is an apportioned power to prosper financially.


This man therefore has riches, but there are evil personalities who have the power to take the riches as a substance and keep it. They claim to keep it for the owner; except that it is done without the owner’s knowledge or approval.


So, he rises early, works hard all day, returns home late, and he has nothing to show for his labour.

While he toils physically, expecting the manifestation of the divine promise of prosperity in his life, he is unaware that there is spiritual labour he must invest in; for until he does, his efforts will be in vain, and his expectations frustrated.


He labours in vain because the divine plan of God for him has been hijacked on earth (under the sun) and kept somewhere.

His riches remain unavailable to him, kept to his hurt.


Sadly, if he tarries too long, those riches will perish- destroyed by evil powers.

And, when he becomes a father, he has nothing to give to his son.


This is a sore evil: when a parent is rendered financially impotent, such that he has nothing to take care of his children with.


This is why spiritual laziness is a great tragedy. When a Christian fails to acknowledge and take up the responsibility of travailing in the study of the Word, in fasting and prayer until he has located and saved all that belongs to him in Christ, he denies himself, and his children access to the full content of their destinies.


A spiritually diligent man will look into the divine master plan, and seek and save that which is missing- the glory, favour, honour, longevity, wealth, joy, fruitfulness- in his family. Such a man cannot but make a mark in the fabric of time.


That is why you are here: to make that mark. While on this journey, be careful not to mind your opposition. Set your sights on the missing thing and do not lose your focus in getting it back.


As he came forth of his mother's womb, naked shall he return to go as he came, and shall take nothing of his labour, which he may carry away in his hand.


This man labours but he is unable to take anything of his labour because the riches thereof have been kept to his hurt.


Every man also to whom God hath given riches and wealth, and hath given him power to eat thereof, and to take his portion, and to rejoice in his labour; this is the gift of God.


This is the original intent of God. He does not just give riches and wealth to every man. His gift also includes the power to eat of the riches and wealth; to take his portion- your wealth- thereof, and also rejoice in his labour (no bread of sorrows, please).


You will not just have the blessing; you will also receive the capacity to enjoy the blessing. None of your portion will be kept from you and you will not despair in labour.


Such a man will not struggle to be a blessing to his children, or labour in vain. He will have enough to leave as an inheritance to his grandchildren.


This principle applies to every area of life. Find the missing thing in your life and family: spiritual, financial, marital, in business, ministerial, in leadership. Locate and call them to you.


Claim your right to get profit in all your labour; fight for the power to take your full portion and enjoy all your labour under the sun.


Do not be spiritually lazy. Do not be content to be diligent in labour without diligently seeking to receive your portion.


You are not called to vanity, but to victory.

Remember that adversity is to make you strong, not to destroy you. Take up the challenge: seek out all that is missing in your household and save them all.
