I Serve The God Of Prosperity

Posted by Efoghor Joseph Ezie on 6/20/2010 12:25:00 AM

I have been a born-again Christian for 13 years now and my walk with God has made me discover and understand him the more. I now see him differently from the way I used to see him when I was an unbeliever; I have come to realize that he is a God of prosperity. There is no poverty and failure in him: Every good thing comes from him because he made all things good from the beginning and gave us dominion over all things, including failure and penury.

Examples abound in the scripture, of people whom God prospered and made great. I will only mention few of them because of time.

1.Abraham: God promised in (Gen 12:1-3) that he would make Abraham a great nation, bless him, make his name great and make him a blessing to others. He truly prospered Abraham. We understand he controlled wealth and even had 318 servants whom he fed daily. He became so contented width what he had that when he went to war he refused to take plunders.(Gen 14:14 -23)

2.King David: God also prospered King David and made him very comfortable financially. He was so blessed that he established about 11 different compromise(1 Chr 27:25-31) and was able to make ready abundant provisions for the building of the lord’s house (1 chr.28:2); though it was his son Solomon that would later build the temple.

3.King Solomon: He was another person that enjoyed God’s prosperity. God prospered him and honored him above all other kings. (1Kings 3:13) and when the queen of Sheba paid him a visit, she was dumb struck by the great wealth that oozed around him. She was amazed at King Solomon’s opulence. She respected him because of the number of people feeding from his table, the quality of food, the meat, their apparel, etc. (1Kings10:4-3). He also received several gifts and royalties from different people which made him prosper the more. (1Kings1010-12, 14-17)

What does God’s word say?
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth” (3John 2) KJV. God desires that every of his child should prosper and live healthy life. He wants you to succeed in all spheres of life.

However, for you to enjoy this prosperity, you must believe in God’s word and obey him. His blessings do not come to those who live in habitual sin and are disobedient to his word. Expect him to prosper you as you enjoy a healthy relationship and fellowship with him.
