Proverbs 10:22 MEV

The blessing of the Lord makes rich, and He adds no sorrow with it.

Prosperity is God’s Will for You

As much as I want My people healed, I want them to prosper financially and provisionally. I want My people to thrive and flourish in these times. I want them to experience My supernatural provision. Lack and poverty are under the curse. Tell them that they are redeemed from the curse and that they are to walk in the fullness of THE BLESSING. My people are not subject to the times, no matter what is happening around them. Totally immerse them in the Word of prosperity. By doing this, the Word will build their faith and enlarge their capacity to believe and receive. (Ps. George Pearsons)

Over these next few weeks, the Word of God is going to build our faith and enlarge our capacity to believe and receive. 

It’s God’s will for every one of His children to prosper in every area of their lives including finances. You don’t have to talk God into the idea of prospering you. Since the Garden of Eden, prosperity and blessing have been His idea.

You don’t have to choose between prosperity and spirituality. You can have both. Some people believe that the poorer you are, the more spiritual you are. Poverty and spirituality are not the same.

To prosper means to succeed and flourish. Prosperity is to advance or gain in anything good or desirable. It also means well-being. Over and over throughout the scriptures, God reveals that it is His will to prosper His people.

Psalm 25:12-13 NLT

Who are those who fear the Lord? He will show them the path they should choose. 13 They will live in prosperity, and their children will inherit the land.

Psalm 25:12-13 Living Bible

Where is the man who fears the Lord? God will teach him how to choose the best.13 He shall live within God’s circle of blessing, and his children shall inherit the earth.  

Psalm 35v27 NKJV

Let them shout for joy and be glad, who favor my righteous cause; and let them say continually, “Let the Lord be magnified, Who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.”

Notice what you must be saying continually. “The Lord takes pleasure in my prosperity.”

Say that…”Let the Lord be magnified, for He takes pleasure in my prosperity”.

3 John 2-4 NKJV

Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. 3 For I rejoiced greatly when brethren came and testified of the truth that is in you, just as you walk in the truth. 4 I have no greater joy than to hear that my children walk in truth.

John 17:17 NKJV

Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth. 

The Apostle John said that he rejoiced when people came and testified of the truth (The Word) that was in them. People must come and testify of how the Word is in you and how you walk and live in the Word.

The Word of God must dwell richly in you if you want to see it working in your life.

Colossians 3:16 NKJV

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.

You will only prosper in material things and in health to the degree that your soul prospers. 

We are inside-out people, not outside-in people. Stop looking for what you need on the outside. God has placed everything you need for life and godliness inside of you.

Our prosperity comes from the Word not from the world.

I’ve met some poor people with money. They have money in the natural but they still have a poverty mindset. They scared to spend their money, afraid they going to lose everything. They can’t give and help others. They will ride R100 petrol to save R20.

Proverbs 11:24 NKJV

There is one who scatters, yet increases more;
And there is one who withholds more than is right,
But it leads to poverty.

Proverbs 11:24 The Message

The world of the generous gets larger and larger;
the world of the stingy gets smaller and smaller.

People who are stingy and who withhold their seed only end up with more needs. But those who sow their seed prevent lack in their future.

It is God’s will for you to prosper

Matthew 8v1-3 NKJV

When He had come down from the mountain, great multitudes followed Him. And behold, a leper came and worshiped Him, saying, “Lord, if You are willing, You can make me clean.” Then Jesus put out His hand and touched him, saying, “I am willing; be cleansed.” Immediately his leprosy was cleansed.

The leper knew that Jesus was able to heal him. He knew Jesus had the ability, the power to heal him but he doubted Jesus’ willingness to heal him. He was not sure whether it was His will but Jesus proved it to him in verse 3 when He said “I am willing, be cleansed”.

Faith stops at the question mark. You must be sure and know, not if.

These are the same words Jesus is saying to you where your prosperity and your finances are concerned. He is saying “Yes, it is My will for you to prosper”.
