God’s ultimate plan for all His children is that they prosper. However, if they purpose of a thing is not known, abuse is inevitable. What then is divine prosperity?
Divine prosperity is the state of buoyancy in the spirit, liberality in the soul and prosperous well-being in the physical. Prosperity starts in the spirit, flow to the soul and permeate to the flesh. 3John 2 “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers”. You must first be prosperous in the spirit because you are a spirit being, then “, just as your soul prospers” before it manifests in the physical.
Being prosperous is not limited to how much money and material possession you have but about the liberality of your heart, Proverbs 11:25 “The generous (liberal) soul will be made rich, and he who waters will also be watered himself”. The reason why we see many rich people that cannot help people around them, even their families is because they are poor at heart.
Prosperity is not all about money, it far supersedes that. Though everybody wants to prosper but the truth is it is not everybody that will be prosperous, God Himself said “for the poor shall never cease out of the land” Deuteronomy 15:11. So it is a matter of choice! It is possible to be very spiritual, highly anointed and be poor if you do not follow kingdom practice to covenant prosperity.
Divine prosperity is entrusted by the true giver of wealth, which is God to the people He trusts. Luke 16:11 “If therefore ye have not been faithful in the unrighteous mammon, who will commit to your trust the true riches?” If God knows you will not handle His resources well, He will not release it to you.
Prayer point: Father Lord, help me to merit Your trust for divine prosperity in Jesus name.
