Biblical Prosperity – An Abundance of Spiritual Blessings!
Have You Claimed Your Rich Inheritance?
God desires to do good things for His children and produce good fruit in their lives.
His blessings on our lives bring glory and honor to Him.
So let’s take a look at what the Bible says about prosperity.
What is Biblical Prosperity and why is the abundant life based on spiritual prosperity?
Biblical Prosperity – Blessed with Spiritual Blessings
God has left all His children a great inheritance and we can see this by reading His will. And what God has provided, He did abundantly. There is no need for His children to divide up a little, because there is more than enough to go around.
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ.”
— Ephesians 1:3
See what I mean? It says ‘ALL’ spiritual blessings in heavenly places. I don’t know about you, but ‘all the spiritual blessings in heavenly places’ sounds like abundance to me!
And notice these blessings have already been provided and this is prosperity that we can walk in NOW, not later. We can tap into this spiritual prosperity by asking God to give us the spirit of wisdom and revelation into His will.
Pray that God opens the eyes of your heart and His Word comes alive in your life.
“The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that you may know what is the hope of His calling, and what the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints.”
— Ephesians 1:18
As children of God we are made alive together and seated together with Christ in heavenly places. Once we see life from God’s perspective, and realize we are prosperous right now with every spiritual blessing, our life and future outlook becomes changed forever.
Spiritual Prosperity – The Foundation of an Abundant Life
The kingdom of God is a spiritual one and the foundation of our prosperity, as kingdom citizens, starts in heavenly places; an area that we can’t physically see or touch. As children of God we have been given all spiritual blessings in Christ.
Yes, if we want to transform our world and manifest financial prosperity and success we have to observe natural laws. But first we must seek to obey spiritual laws that have power to bring even greater riches in our lives. Then by combining the natural and spiritual laws we can find ourselves with growing prosperity; spirit, soul, and body.
‘The riches of the glory of the inheritance of the saints’ is the great treasure for God’s children. It is the great prosperity –the abundance of God. We are made righteous and sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise. We have love, joy, peace, hope, and more…
Biblical prosperity starts with spiritual prosperity first. From there God gives each of us the unique abilities to prosper in life in ways that will bring glory to Him.
Live like King Uzziah, who as long as he sought the Lord, God made him to prosper. (2 Chronicles 26:5)
The truth is: Biblical prosperity is the abundant life. We can have all spiritual blessings when we find our place in Christ! Why not choose to live the great adventure, and the great prosperity that is available in Christ? We can have an abundant and prosperous life in Christ as we continue to pursue and chase after Him…
Are you enjoying the riches of the glory of your inheritance? If not, ask God to open the eyes of your heart and reveal how you are blessed right now with every spiritual blessing.
May the eyes of your understanding be enlightened and your life full of growing prosperity!

The Law of Attraction – Living by Faith
Claiming Your Inheritance
If you are a subscriber, you already received the complete chapter free.
I like to randomly read parts of this book…
and when I did today, the following stood out:
“Mental laws are clear and simple. We know that the fear thought attracts more fear, the worry thought more worry, the anxious thought more anxiety, the hatred thought more hatred, the jealous thought more jealousy, and the poverty thought more poverty. This is the law of attraction. Like every other law, it is unalterable.
The poverty disease can be cured only by its antidote——the prosperity thought. You carry within you this antidote to the poison of poverty, of lack, of pinching, dwarfing limitation. Use it, and cure yourself. The prosperity thought will kill the poverty germ.
Keep your supply pipes open between yourself and the infinite source of all supply. Don’t pinch them by doubt, don’t cut off the supply by limiting, pinching, poverty, lack thought.
Keep your supply pipes wide open by the consciousness of your oneness with God, your connection with the All Supply.
Abundance follows a law as exact as that of the law of mathematics. If we obey it we get the flow. If we pinch it, strangle it, we cut off the supply.
Suppose a youth who had decided to study medicine and become a doctor should say to himself: “I cannot picture myself as a success because I don’t know anything about what may come to me. Perhaps I haven’t the qualifications that make a successful physician. I may never become one. I may be a failure. I doubt if I am fitted for it, but I’ll try, anyway.”
Do you think such a timid, doubting, negative attitude would ever carry anyone to the success goal? Of course it wouldn’t.
The young medical student who is going to succeed is the one who pictures himself constantly as a successful physician, sees himself in a fine office, with a lucrative practice, climbing to the top of his profession. He is constantly visualizing himself as a successful physician.
Now, the same rule applies to the poor man who wants to become prosperous. He must picture himself as prosperous, he must obey the law of opulence by holding the ideal of opulence in his mind, and he must saturate himself with the prosperity thought, the thought of abundance.
If you wish to cure yourself of the poverty disease you should begin by giving yourself prosperity treatments something like this:
Say to yourself:
“If I am God’s child I have inherited all the good things of the universe. I am heir to all supply, to the all-good. Poverty cannot touch the reality of me any more than disease can, for the reality of me is health. Health is the everlasting fact, and disease, sickness, is merely the absence of the reality. Poverty is not my normal condition. There can be no lack, no poverty for God’s image. ‘All that my Father hath is mine.’”
Repeat daily the twenty-third psalm:
“The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures; he leadeth me beside the still waters,” etc.
Follow this during the day with frequent assertions of your kinship with the Creator of all the universe.
Commit these lines by Ella Wheeler Wilcox to memory, and frequently say them to yourself, vigorously, and with the force of absolute conviction:
“I am success.
Though hungry, cold, ill-clad,
I wander for a while, I smile and say:
‘It is but for a time—I shall be glad
Tomorrow, for good fortune comes my way.
God is my Father, He has wealth untold;
His wealth is mine, health, happiness and gold.’”
All the good things you need are yours by inheritance. Claim them, expect them, work for them, believe they are already yours, and you will realize them in your life.
If you continually assert your kinship with God your Father, to whom all things belong, and send out the vigorous thought of abundance, a generous supply of all you need—which is your birthright—poverty cannot hold you its slave.” — Orison Swett Marden
As Christian believers we are to live by faith, because God’s Word says so.
“The just shall live by faith.” — Romans 1:17
Living by faith means believing and obeying the Word of God. We have to think, speak, meditate, and act on God’s Word daily. There may be many books that inform, encourage, and inspire us, but there is only One Book that is full of Divine Living Power…
Have you opened your Bible yet today and let the Word of God speak to you?
May God’s Word come alive in your life this year like never before and leave a trail of growing prosperity everywhere you go!
Be blessed to be a blessing!
P.S. Feel free to share experiences of your faith attracting your needed supply…
What Is God’s Will? Skit Guys Video
A Look at Knowing God’s Will for Your Life
Enjoy some humor with this video by the Skit Guys. Be sure to hear what he says in the beginning of the video: God’s plan and will for our lives will NOT contradict God’s Word (which is His will).
So yes, there are lots of obvious things in God’s Word that are His will for everyone. God also gives us unique gifts, talents, and desires. We all have a purpose in His kingdom. When we put into motion, in life, those things we are passionate about and follow our heart – this helps move us into the center of God’s will.
For some Christians, God’s will for their life is very clear from an early age. For others, it is a constant step-by-step process that seems to be revealed with each step and act of obedience to God’s truths.
Again though, our heart and our passions will help guide us into the center of God’s will, but they need to be in line with God’s Word and not contradict it.
“I pray for you and desire that you might be filled with the
knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding;
That you might walk worthy of the Lord to all pleasing,
being fruitful in every good work,
and increasing in the knowledge of God;
Strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power,
to all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;
Giving thanks to the Father, which has made us
to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light;
Who has delivered us from the power of darkness,
and has translated us into the kingdom of His dear Son:
In whom we have redemption through His blood,
even the forgiveness of sins:
Who is the image of the invisible God,
the firstborn of every creature:
For by Him were all things created,
that are in heaven, and that are in earth,
visible and invisible, whether they be
thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers:
all things were created by Him, and for Him:
and He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.”
— Colossians 1:9-17
God bless you –

Abundant Living – 7 Success Tips to Guide Your Journey of Life and Journey to Heaven!
Soar In The High Places of God
An abundant eternal life is also a choice.
God has prepared a great plan of prosperity for us and now it is up to us to reach out and receive by faith.
As a Christian; life is not a ‘try it out and see what happens’.
It takes faith to become a Christian and faith to live the Christian journey of life.
7 Guiding Success Tips for Abundant Living:
1.) Allow the Spirit of God to Reveal – Let the Spirit of God help you know what has been freely given to us. God reveals to us by His Spirit; the things He prepared for those who love Him. (1 Corinthians 2:9-10, 12)
2.) Live a Life of Excellence – Be determined to live a life of excellence and go all the way up the mountain! Don’t live a mediocre life and be content to only go half-way.
3.) Get in The Word – It is the Word of God that gets on us and in us that creates success. Get in the Word and do what it says and your journey will become prosperous and you will have good success in life. (Joshua 1:8)
4.) Catch the Vision – Be a person of vision and dare to do things others aren’t willing to try. Have an eye of an eagle to see a far off. Living by faith requires using our spiritual vision to see what has not yet manifested in the natural. Wait on God to get your vision. (Habakkuk 2:1-2)
5.) Understand Your True Identity – Know who you are, the authority you have, and the promises made available to you because you are in Christ. There are over 130 “In Him” and “In Christ” verses in the Bible that help you with this. Dig them out and discover what you have been missing!
6.) Live in Victory – Have wings to soar like an eagle above the storms that come. Overcome the accuser by the testimony of the blood of Jesus in your life. Submit yourself to God and resist the devil to make him flee from you. (Revelation 12:11, James 4:7)
7.) Pray Always – Be a person of prayer. Build yourself up spiritually before you do anything. And in everything we do it should be by prayer. (Philippians 4:6)
Why not choose to live in the high places of God? God wants His children to have the very best.
Your journey on earth and your journey to heaven can be thrilling! Do not settle for anything less than the very best.
And don’t be fooled; wishing and hoping does NOT result in blessings.
Bottom line: God’s dealings with people are always based on covenant. Discover what belongs to you and claim your inheritance by opening The Book, praying, and listening to God. God will let you know what to do. Just call on Him and act on His Word by faith and enjoy abundant living.
May your journey of life be filled with growing prosperity!
