God’s plan for each and every believer is prosperity. Even though there are those who are opposed to the prosperity message, that still does not deny the reality of God’s Word. Let’s look at some basic biblical truths concerning prosperity.
1) God desires for us to prosper.
“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’” (Psalm 35:27).
2) God teaches us to profit.
“Thus says the LORD, your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel: ‘I am the LORD your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you by the way you should go’” (Isaiah 48:17).
3) Receiving is the result of giving and God wants us to give.
“Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you” (Luke 6:38).
4) God adds things to us when we seek first His kingdom.
“Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you” (Matthew 6:33).
5) We are commanded to tithe on our increase; therefore, increase must be of God.
“Honor the LORD with your possessions, and with the firstfruits of all your increase; so your barns will be filled with plenty, and your vats will overflow with new wine” (Proverbs 3:9,10).
6) God empowers us to get wealth.
“You shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day” (Deuteronomy 8:18).
7) God gives us all things that pertain to life.
“As His divine power has given to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of Him who called us by glory and virtue, by which have been given to us exceedingly great and precious promises, that through these you may be partakers of the divine nature, having escaped the corruption that is in the world through lust” (2 Peter 1:3,4).
8) God’s blessing is riches without sorrow.
“The blessing of the LORD makes one rich, and He adds no sorrow with it” (Proverbs 10:22).
9) God supplies all my needs according to His riches.
“My God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus” (Philippians 4:19).
10) Jesus delivered us from poverty.
“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich” (2 Corinthians 8:9).
There are hundreds of references in the Word of God that clearly tell us that prosperity should be the lifestyle of every believer. Just like salvation, we receive prosperity by grace, the awesome power of God. But it is through faith that it is activated. Faith is the catalyst that activates the promise of prosperity in God’s Word in your life. Remember faith is hearing, believing, speaking, and acting on God’s promises.
