Your Prosperity Is In Your Hands

Your Prosperity Is

In Your Hands

 

This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success  (Joshua 1:8).

 

God wants you to prosper in every area of your life, for He delights in the prosperity of His children (Psalm 35:27). In 3 John 1:2 God expresses His wish above all things that you prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers. No wonder the Bible says in 2 Peter 1:3 that He has given you “All things that pertain unto life and godliness.” The implication of this is that in Christ Jesus you’ve come into a rich inheritance; a place of absolute prosperity.

 

 

Indeed, when you received Christ you were automatically catapulted into a glorious realm of prosperity and became not just an heir of God but a joint heir with Christ (Romans 8:17). But then the Bible says in Galatians 4:1, “…the heir, as long as he is a child, differeth nothing from a servant, though he be lord of all….”  In other words, though you’re a joint heir with Christ, and all of God’s wealth and inestimable riches belong to you, you have to grow in the Word unto maturity to enjoy the benefits of your inheritance. 

 

 

This is where meditating on the Word and putting it to work in your life comes to play. As you meditate on the scriptures the Word of God is seasoned in your spirit, such that you talk, walk, and live the Word. Through meditation you’re mingled with the word, as it were. The Bible shows this to us as the way to attain the prosperity God ordained for you. So not only is the Lord interested in your prosperity, He also shows you how to make your way prosperous. His admonition in our opening verse makes it clear that by meditating on the Word and observing to do what it says you make your way prosperous.

 

 

Now this isn’t just referring to financial prosperity, but prosperity all-round—in every aspect of your life. The Apostle Paul reiterated the same truth in 1Timothy 4:15: “meditate on these things, give yourself completely to them that your profiting may appear to all.”  When you meditate on God’s Word, your progress, advancement, prosperity, success will spread abroad and be evident for all to see. Therefore as a child of God, the extent of your success and prosperity is entirely dependent on you. To prosper in all you do—in your job, family, health, finances, marriage, etc—get God’s Word and continually meditate on it. This is His divine road-map for true and lasting prosperity.

 

 

Prayer

 

Heavenly Father, I thank you for the great inheritance that you’ve made available to me. As I study and meditate on your Word constantly, I make my way prosperous, and my success and prosperity are evident in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
