It’s God’s desire for His children to prosper, most people love to hear about prosperity, and with most preachers that’s all they preach about. Prosperity means you are doing well or flourishing. But doing well or flourishing how? Godly prosperity means you flourish spiritually, physically, mentally, and in every way possible. The Bible says,”Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospered “(3 John 2).
God’s main concern is for our soul,”For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? Or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul”? ( Matthew 16:26). When, you seek prosperity, with no concern for your soul you are going to perish (James 5:1-6). The Bible says,”seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and He will add the rest”( Matthew 6:33); God told Joshua,”This book of the law ( The Bible) shall not depart from thy mouth, but thou shall meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written there in; for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then shalt thou have good success”( Joshua 1:8).
Children of God, stand firm and declare that, the God of heaven will prosper us, therefore we, His servants will arise and build (Nehemiah 2:20); we must believe, we can do all things through Christ who strengthens us ( Philippians 4:13). Godly prosperity is knowing, that because you are righteous and seek God first, that without a shadow of doubt, He will supply your needs according to His riches in glory through Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).
Believe in the Lord your God, so shall ye be established; believe His prophets, so shall ye prosper (2 Chronicles 20:20b). However, children of God, we must remember that, Godliness with contentment is great gain; for we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain we can carry nothing out….for the love of money is the root of all evil, which, while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows (1 Timothy 6: 6-10).
But thou, O children of God, flee these things, and follow after righteousness, Godliness, faith, love, patience, and meekness; Fight the good fight of faith, lay hold on eternal life, unto which thou art also called and hast professed a good profession before many witnesses( 1 Timothy 6:11-12).
