Psalm 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.
The underlined scripture above shows that God derives pleasure when you prosper.
3 John 2 -Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
It is God’s will that you prosper but your prosperity will be at the level of the prosperity of your soul which is made up of your will, your emotion and your mind. Therefore, the level to which your mind prospers determines the level to which you will physically prosper.
2 Cor.8:9 – For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.
Jesus became poor that we might be rich. Redemption connects us to supernatural abundance; therefore, poverty is not your portion. Many believers have not pursues supernatural prosperity because they have not tasted the pain of poverty. Supernatural prosperity authenticates the validity of redemption; it makes redemption real. Once you are born again and you are still poor, you are making redemption look like fake because Jesus became poor that you might be rich. Everything Jesus suffered for on the cross was for you not to go through that again.
Prosperity is impossible without the use of your mind. Your mentality has a great role to play. To succeed on earth, you need the mind.
Phil. 1:14 -But without thy mind would I do nothing; that thy benefit should not be as it were of necessity, but willingly.
Prov.23:7 -For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
Your perspective defines your destiny. You are where you are now based on what you thought yesterday and where you will be tomorrow is a function of what goes through your mind today. Your mind is the compass of your destiny; it gives you direction in life.
Isaiah 54:2-3 -Enlarge the place of thy tent, and let them stretch forth the curtains of thine habitations: spare not, lengthen thy cords, and strengthen thy stakes; 3 For thou shalt break forth on the right hand and on the left; and thy seed shall inherit the Gentiles, and make the desolate cities to be inhabited.
The moment your mental capacity increases, breaking forth is sure and growth is certain. Every stagnation is as a result of the stagnation of the mind. Your future is a function of the picture you see.
Eccl.5:9 -Moreover the profit of the earth is for all: the king himself is served by the field.
Everything about God is rich; there’s nothing poor about God. A rich God cannot therefore tell His beloved children to be poor. There’s a wrong belief that some people are born rich and others poor but that is not correct. Rom.8:29-30 says that God wants every child of God to be glorified.
Rom.10:12 -For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek: for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
If you believe the word of God, where you come from is irrelevant; therefore, change your mentality. God made His children men of equal destiny at new birth but life after that depends on what you decide to make out of it. Poverty mentality enslaves. First, believe that God wants you to prosper.
Rom.12:2 -And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.
Boost your mind and begin to reason like God by agreeing with His word. We serve a God who operates in the supernatural; therefore, stop walking in the natural. Everything Adam lost through sin that brought poverty to the world was restored through the death and resurrection of Christ.
It is what your mentality can grasp that you will make happen in your life.
Gen.11:6 -And the Lord said, Behold, the people is one, and they have all one language; and this they begin to do: and now nothing will be restrained from them, which they have imagined to do.
If you think wrong, you will believe wrong because out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks. Poor thinking will give birth to poor life and rich thinking will produce rich life. Covenant mentality is the gateway to financial dignity. It is not the work you do that makes you rich; it is what you think that determines how rich your life will be.
No matter what you are seeing in life, they are subject to change. Therefore, let your mind accept what the word of God said and not what you are seeing. Reject every negative thought going on in your mind and see only what God’s word said; then you will be on your way to enjoying the covenant prosperity according to God’s word in Jesus name –Amen!
God bless you
