Abundant Living – Do You Want Prosperity or the Empowerment to Prosper?
The Blessing of the Lord it Maketh Rich!
Many people are convinced that the prosperity of God translates to money and stuff raining down out of heaven.
However that is not the prosperity of God, but actually prosperity from God.
What’s the difference between prosperity and the empowerment to prosper?
Making the Choice that Results in Abundant Living!
In Proverbs 10:22, it says, “The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich.” Notice it does not say the blessings make you rich; it is the blessing of God that is the key here.
What this means is that you want the empowerment to prosper and not just the prosperity itself. You don’t just want the fish; you want to learn how to fish.
When Abraham prospered, it wasn’t because God dropped down a camel or a son out of the sky. No, he was blessed because God empowered him to prosper. For example, he and his wife were given the ability to parent a child at an old age.
And the good news is that God has given you the ability to gain wealth and prosper.
Getting Empowered to Prosper
Power comes when believers put the principles of God’s Word to work in their life. It is your faith that will manifest results. Wisdom is also needed for you to understand and apply the Word of God in order to receive prosperity. Wisdom will help you realize the power available to you through your faith.
In order to experience prosperity, we must apply God’s principles by faith.
God is the one that does the multiplying and gives us the desires and ideas. He is the divine instructor that tells us what to do. And when we over, and over, apply the principles of the Word concerning prosperity, and make them part of our daily life, that’s when we start getting results.
Remember, prosperity doesn’t just drop in our lap. Re-enforcing the Word through daily meditation on prosperity principles should become a lifestyle. If we want to be a prosperous person tomorrow, we have to apply God’s principles of sowing and reaping in the difficult times of lack today.
Start with the faith you now have and then gain knowledge and wisdom concerning what the Word really says about finances. Act on that knowledge and mix your faith with it and you’ll soon start getting desirable results.
Make the following your regular confession:
“Today, I live in the blessing of God and I am empowered to prosper in every way!”
Keep in touch with God so you can be empowered to live an abundant life. Put yourself in position for God to empower you to prosper in everything you set your hands to do.
Then, when the economy takes a downturn or the storms of life blow through, you can say, “So What!” because you’ll know you are empowered to prosper. You can know God will take care of you, and will honor His Word by prospering the work of your hands.
Believe it or not: God wants you blessed and empowered to prosper. He’s looking for ways to bless you. He wants to help you out in life and give you good success. Go ahead and believe it, because that is a key factor in what it takes to get it.
May you live empowered to prosper and experience an abundant life of growing prosperity!
Be blessed to be a blessing –
God bless you,
