God Gives the Power to not Be Poor. Being Poor Means God Willed It.

Those who escape their poverty do so by the plan and providence of God. Being poor is a function of God not granting responsibility. People say the poor are not responsible. But their poverty is a function of God's will.

The Scripture is clear, God gives the power to gain wealth. So says Moses in Deuteronomy 8:18 That means any power man has to make even one dollar is God given.

Be warned, if you think the poor are poor because of what they did apart from God's providence, you are mistaken. If God had chosen to make them not poor it would have been accomplished!

You will say, "Well, they are not responsible, or are drunkards, or are lazy". And the response of the scripture is clear, God gives the power to overcome lack of responsibility, drunkenness, and laziness. Many also are born and raised with no propensity toward those behaviors.

Lack of responsibility is the result of an absence of God's power. 

And yet, this power to gain wealth is not a saving power counting toward eternal life. In fact, God sometimes saves the irresponsible, the drunken and the lazy to confound those given power to gain extraordinary wealth. Isn't that just incredible? 

The arrogance of man is evident when you see how man deals with the poor. That arrogance will someday be crushed by the final judgement that we all face.
