Prosperity!

Date: 12-Dec-2019 | Author: Pastor's Norman & Jean | Comments: 0

The word salvation contains the idea that God wants to prosper us. In the word we are told that the wealth of the wicked is saved up for the righteous (Prov 13:22), that’s us. God said he would meet all of our need according to his riches and glory by Christ Jesus (Phil 4:19). Did you catch that? God said according to his riches and glory not our limited idea of riches and glory. God wants to open the windows of heaven on us and pour out such a blessing we cannot contain it (Mal 3:10).

However, we are directed to seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and then all these things will be added to us (Matt 6:33). In fact, in the bible we read that we often do not receive what we ask for because we ask with the wrong motivation; we ask for selfish reasons (James 4:3).

I think what the Lord is saying is that if we seek after him, his heart and to obey him, then he will exercise his highest desire to bless us as his children. We don’t come to him just to get. Focusing on just getting stuff will never satisfy us, only our relationship with Jesus will do that.

“Now he that ministereth seed to the sower both minister bread for your food, and multiply your seed sown, and increase the fruits of your righteousness” (2 Cor 9:10; KJV). God wants to pour his blessings through us so that his work can be done on this earth and in the process, we will be blessed with all our needs met abundantly (John 10:10).
