BELIEVE IN GOD’S PROSPERITY!
You’re Prosperous And Influential In Christ.
TO THE BIBLE: Galatians 3:29 “And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.”
A lad asked his father, “Dad, why are some Christians poor? I mean when I study my Bible, those who walked with God were very prosperous. Has God changed?”
“No son, it’s not God who’s changed; those Christians are ignorant of what the Word teaches on prosperity.”
Let’s take a short look at some Bible characters who were very prosperous: Abraham “…was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold” (Genesis 13:2). Then, Isaac, Abraham’s son “…had possession of flocks, and possession of herds, and great store of servants: and the Philistines envied him” (Genesis 26:14).
Then what about Jacob? Genesis 36:6-7 shows us that Jacob and Esau had so much possessions that they couldn’t live together in the same place; the land couldn’t support their “combined assets”—herds of livestock. So, Esau had to move a considerable distance away from his brother Jacob. With these three patriarchs of faith, God identified Himself. He said, “…I am the God of thy father, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob…” (Exodus 3:6). Even King David was “…full of days, wealth, and glory. His son Solomon ruled after him” (1 Chronicles 29:28 MSG). And let’s not forget Job, who was the richest man in all the East (Job 1:3).
These were all God’s friends, and God’s testimony of them was extraordinary. Now that you’re born again, you’re the seed of Abraham; an heir of God, and joint-heir with Christ. Therefore, prosperity is your birthright. Believe and live in prosperity; take your place as a blessing and influence to others as well.
Go Deeper: 2 Corinthians 8:9; 1 Corinthians 3:21
I’m connected to an endless stream of prosperity, riches and glory. I’ll never be broke and I’ll never be poor, because I’m an heir of God and a joint-heir with Christ! I have an inestimable and inexhaustible inheritance in Christ Jesus. Amen.
