“And God will generously provide ALL you need. Then you will always have everything you need and plenty left over to share with others” – 2 Corinthians 9:8
To become wealthy and prosperous is the prayer of everyone. Every person is looking forward to becoming rich and prosperous, the reason being that everything in the world that gives happiness and wellbeing is tied to money. So, this means you must work in order to earn money. All human beings, whether Christians or not, are wired by God to become rich and prosperous, but this reality is never fulfilled in the lives of so many. While so many are comfortable or are extensively rich, some are dislocated from the path of wealth and prosperity. Daily, we pray for financial breakthrough or success in our business. But a great number of these prayers are rarely answered. Why? This is because so many principles of God relating to prosperity are not carefully followed by many. For you to attract wealth, you may follow these principles: FIRST, give to the poor and the needy within your family, or in the public (Luke 6:38). But when you give, give according to what you have. In Deuteronomy 16:17, the scripture says; “All must give as they are able, according to the blessings given to them by the Lord your God”. Therefore, at every point in time, you have something to give, and you have to give back the measure you have received from God. Unfortunately, some people rarely give to others! They always claim they have nothing to give. When you don’t give enough to others out of the blessings you have received from God, you prevent divine blessings of money and abundance coming your way. Remember to give to the Lord as well. Yes, God does not need money, but we need money to administer the house of God and every Ministry commissioned by God. Sowing into God’s project or Ministry is a good investment for the wise. In Proverbs 3:9-10, the scripture says, “Honor the Lord with your wealth and with the best part of everything you produce. Then he will fill your barns with grain, and your vats will overflow with good wine” SECOND, Trust and have confidence in God (Jeremiah 17:7-8) When you build your trust in God, He never disappoints you. God receives the prayers of the righteous and ensures that the righteous are never forsaken. THIRD, be contented with what you have. Don’t love money; be satisfied with what you have (Hebrews 13:5) Further to this, Jesus says in Luke 12:15: “Beware! Guard against every kind of greed. Life is not measured by how much you own.” Beloved, today’s scripture reminds us of God’s wish to make us prosperous and rich; God is ready to provide ALL you need, and that you will always have everything you need, and plenty left over to share with others. Now that you know these principles, you must start today to put them into constant practice. This means you don’t have to live in debt or in fear anymore about what the economy might do. As you practice these principles, only stand and be in prayer for financial breakthrough, and believe God for the increase and victory you need in your finances always!
Father in the name of Jesus Christ, I pray today according to Your Word. Yes, I stand in unshakable faith, based on Your Word, ready to receive from you. I am a tither and a giver. Thank You for providing exceedingly abundantly above all that I could ask or think. Thank You for meeting all my needs according to your riches in glory by Christ Jesus and for multiplying my seed sown so that I may give into every good work. Amen!
