UNDERSTANDING KINGDOM PROSPERITY
Psa. 71: 21 Psa. 35:n27
There is no doubt, it is the will of our God for us to have steady increase. God want you to really prosper. So, He is saying you should shout for joy and be glad because He the Lord, wants you to prosper beyond your imagination.
There are seasons and there are times, good and bad but God’s love and covenant remains the same – season in, season out; and this covenant is superior to the climate, financial meltdown, or whatever is going on with the economy or in your life. Psa. 89: 34
Money is neither good nor bad, rather it takes the character of its owner.
There is a reason God wants to connect us to wealth far beyond our age and expectations – it is so that we can help His kingdom.
Prosperity is spiritual. Because God is a Spirit, everything that belongs to Him is a Spirit. God owns wealth, and prosperity belongs to Him. II Cor. 8:9 – and according to that scripture verse, His for you is to walk in prosperity.
You have to connect to it spiritually. If prosperity is a spiritual thing, then you have to stay spiritual to receive it. Eph. 1:3.
The connection happens in the realm of the spirit, from a spirit – God; not in the physical or from man. Haggai 2: 8.
The moment you know that everything you have received is first from the spiritual and for the spiritual, then it will not be difficult to use it for God’s work.
Deut. 8:18. If God says He wants to give you power, then it means He wants to give you spiritual power to operate in the physical.
THE PURPOSE OF PROSPERITY
Prosperity has purpose. God does not just prosper people for no reason.
For The Kingdom. The first reason God allows you to be wealthy is because of His kingdom advancement and expansion.
That scripture verse says, “seek ye first the kingdom of God…”
The moment God notices His kingdom isn’t on your budget, the wealth starts reducing. So, the devil isn’t the reason, you are the reason.
For Personal Pleasure. God wants you to prosper enough to take care of yourself and your loved ones. God is proud if you are doing well and increasing.
For Help of Others. God wants you to be a helper for others. When all that comes to you begins and ends with you, then you can’t prosper in the kingdom.
Believers need to get the ‘logic’ that anyone that gives to God lends God money; and God does not owe!
Luke 12:16. If you miss the purpose, you will miss the blessing. It is not the money you earn but the level you are in the spiritual realm that makes you prosper.
If you gather without giving to God, you are like the fool that gathered up treasures but ends up losing his life.
HOW TO ATTRACT THE COVENANT PROSPERITY
THROUGH YOUR SERVICE TO GOD
Serving God opens you up to a world of prosperity and wonders unlimited.
More young people need to learn the importance and need to serve God, especially in the days of their youth.
Ask yourself these questions:
- How am I serving God?
- Am I serving Him at all?
Your ability to serve God (with all your might, strength and abilities) qualifies you for abundant prosperity.
Do not serve God as convenient, but as commanded! Stop reducing your blessings by yourself.
When you are a diligent servant of God, when you make sure nothing is stopping your service, the following happens:
- You become heaven’s treasure. Heaven takes care of your health, your finances, attacks are taken care of – because heaven knows you have value in the church.
- Your children are spiritually covered by your service.
- God showcases you to the world because of your usefulness to Him.
- You will enjoy divine provision and supernatural health. A believer that serves God feels sick, not falls sick.
- You get on the pathway to greatness and your throne. Your service to God will take you to your throne and greatness. The owner of the church (God) will bless you more if you are useful for His church. Acts 13:36. Stop folding hands in church, start working.
- There is spiritual empowerment. 2Kings 3:11. Elisha was serving Elijah willingly and with all his hearts; youths of today will look to turn this into a source of livelihood. When you stop serving, the anointing stops. Elisha was spiritually empowered because he served; when you act arrogant or proud around your spiritual leader, it disqualifies you for empowerment and leadership.
BECOMING A GOD-LOVER
If you are not a true lover of God, you cannot prosper in His kingdom. The first proof of love is giving; and God showed us the perfect example of that by giving us His Son – His only Son!
When you love God, every other thing is secondary – and because we make everything else secondary, He puts us in positions of leadership. Jesus needed to ascertain how much Peter loved Him before He gave him the mantle of leadership. John 21: 15
God gauged the love level of Abraham for Him, and asked him to sacrifice his only son.
When you truly love God, giving Him anything will be easy for you.
II Chron. 26: 3 – because Zechariah sought God, God made him to prosper.
It takes a lover of God to be a seeker of God – a seeker and lover of God prospers.
God is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Your love for God will cost you. A true lover of God does not spend service time engaging in other things.
Your love for God will reflect in your love for His house (Psa. 122:4-6); for His word and for His people.
YOUR PROPHETIC CONNECTION
Who you follow determines what follows you! When you have regard and honour for your spiritual leader, blessing flow to you from God’s unction on their heads to your hands. Hebrews 7:7
2 Chron. 20: 20. Your prosperity is connected to your prophet. 2 Kings 4:8-14
I pray that this week, the hand of the Lord go with you, His mercies go with you everywhere in Jesus’ name.
You will multiply, you will accelerate, your life shall become double.
