The Path To Prosperity. Part 1

 

God wants you to prosper.
He delights in, takes pleasure in the prosperity of his saints. He loves to see His children do well in life as they walk in the centre of His will. He wants you to prosper in your assignment, business, career, job, ministry and in all that you do.

Psalms 35:27
Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause:
yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.

There is a promise of prosperity for those who serve The Lord and walk in obedience to His will.

Job 36:11
If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.

Psalms 1:3
And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water,
that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither;
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.

In the first Psalm The Lord said if you do not walk in ungodly counsel, if you do not walk with sinners or sit in the seat of the scornful, whatsoever you do will prosper.

True prosperity is more than the accumulation of money and material things. True prosperity is an act of divine providence, empowering you with the necessary economic, social and political resources you require to pursue and fulfil His Will and kingdom agenda for your life, for the Body of Christ and for the world. True prosperity is the divine empowerment to move in the direction of God’s will and carry out His agenda without any fear, intimidation or hinderance. This is the Will of God for all His children. True prosperity will manifest itself in our lives in different ways depending on our assignment and the grace of God on our lives. God doesn’t just give us resources for no reason. God despises waste. Every resource The Lord brings into our hands, every act of divine providence in our lives has a specific purpose in God’s divine agenda for our lives.

Prosperity for a believer in China who has an assignment to reach villages in the interior may be different for a believer who is a Wall Street banker with an assignment to reach the political elite. Both believers will receive the supernatural resources necessary for them to carry out their assignment. Both of them will walk in divine providence according to their faith, in accordance with their assignment and calling.

But how does He position us for prosperity? How does He bring prosperity into our lives? Prosperity doesn’t just happen. There is a way heaven positions the believer for true prosperity.

For decades anytime the word ‘prosperity’ was mentioned by a preacher it meant giving money to the church, to the men and women of God so that you can ‘become rich.’ These preachers didn’t know any better, so they taught what they knew. There is a place for giving in the prosperity equation, however giving is not the fundamental key that unlocks your prosperity. You can give yourself to an early grave but unless you pay attention to what we are about to discuss, you will not experience the level of prosperity The Lord desires for you.

1. The Right Place (The Mystery of Geographical Location.)

There is a place for prosperity. Kingdom prosperity is connected to a definite geographical location. When God wants you to prosper, He guides you to and instructs you to reside in a specific geographical location.
Your success, promotion, prosperity in life is tied to a geographical location. You cannot prosper ‘anywhere.’ You will not prosper ‘abroad’ if that is not where the Lord wants you to be. You may travel to a foreign country to escape the economic hardship in your country but if the Lord is not sending you there, it would be a waste of your time and life. You will prosper in a particular geographical location where The Lord wants you to be in furtherance of His kingdom agenda and in accordance to His will for your life. Continue reading

When God Changes Your Plans.

Saul was angry. He was driven by an insane rage to kill those who followed and preached Christ. He went to the high priest and asked for letters of authorization so that he could arrest any Christian he found in Damascus and bring them chained to Jerusalem. In Acts 9, he journeyed towards Damascus, with the letters in his hands and murder in his heart. He had a very specific plan in mind and that was to jail and kill as many Christians as he could. When the Martyr Steven was stoned to death, Saul was consenting to his death. The witnesses laid down their clothes at his feet to prove that they were a part of his acts of terror against Christians. His plan clearly defined in his wicked heart, Saul journeyed towards Damascus to carry out his purpose. But things were about to change.

Suddenly, a bright light from heaven knocked him off his horse and he fell to the ground in shock. Out of that light he heard the voice of the Lord Jesus Christ speak very clearly to him: ‘Saul, Saul, why are you persecuting me?’ Saul asked, ‘who are you Lord?’ The Lord Jesus answered him, ‘I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting. It is hard for you to kick against the goads.’ Then Saul trembling in great fear asked, ‘Lord, what do you want me to do?’
Read the story in Acts Chapter 9.
In that afternoon encounter, the Lord Jesus Christ redirected the course of Saul’s life forever. He completely changed his plans, his purpose and his destiny, all in one afternoon. Continue reading

The Danger of Pursuing an Unsanctified Desire.

Many believers have been deceived by motivational teachings to ‘follow their dream’ and pursue the ‘desires of their heart.’ They are not told that not all desires that present themselves to us are godly desires. Not all of them are approved of God for our lives. Not all of them proceed from the heart of God. Therefore, not all of them are sanctified or approved of God for us.

The Law Of Consistency

Praise George Relationship book packs on display at a meeting

The Law Of Consistency.

This post is a chapter taken from my book: Success Mastery.

There is power in being consistent at what you do. There is power in turning your focus on one thing and pouring your very soul into it. All through this book, I have talked about consistency in different ways.

To be consistent at what you do is to stay with it until it starts producing results for you. To be consistent is to shut your eyes to other more attractive offers and do that one thing you set your mind on.

The reason why 20% of the population own over 80% of the wealth is because few people have developed the skill of consistency. Few people have mastered the art of sticking with one thing and doing it extremely well. Few people have learned to forgo the very attractive lure of the inconsequential or the quotidian and stick to what is vital.
