The world’s biggest fortunes are made during bad economic times. It’s a historic fact. The greatest financial dynasties emerge not in good times but during recessions and depressions. They are established by people with the wisdom to know what to do when others are wringing their hands in fear, baffled by the conditions around them. >> In other words, financial fortunes are made in
times like these by people like you.
You may be thinking I have you confused with someone else. “Brother Copeland, I’m just not good with finances,” you might say. “I’m one of those baffled people who can’t figure out what to do with them. I don’t have the wisdom it takes to prosper in times like these.”
Yes, you do.
If you’re a born-again, Holy Spirit- filled child of Almighty God who has a Bible to read, you have all the wisdom you need—not just to survive the economic storm that’s been raging around us, but to prosper in the midst of it. God has perfectly positioned you in this time of famine, shortfall, bad debts, foreclosures and dreams gone up in the smoke of the stock market, to bring THE BLESSING into people’s lives again.
He has called you to build hope where there is no hope. He has anointed you to bring life, spiritually and financially, where there is no life, so people can see the real Source of life—God Himself, the Greater One who lives within you.
You don’t have to be a financial expert to do it, either. You don’t even have to be especially wise when it comes to economics. According to Jesus, all you have to do to enjoy victory in the midst of a storm is to be “liken[ed]… unto a wise man” (Matthew 7:24).
That means, if you’ll follow the example of a wise man who increased financially during hard economic times—if you’ll think like he thought, believe what he believed, do what he did, and say what he said—you’ll be like him and get the same results. You’ll prosper and be a blessing to people even in tough times.
