Biblical Prosperity - A Solid Basis For Your Abundance And Prosperity

By Zoe Smith

Let me tell you a secret - I used to find it extremely difficult, unpleasant even, when people talk about money and God in the same breath. I mean, didn?t one scripture verse command, "Thou shall not serve both God and money?" If this were the case, will the successful entrepreneur making a living to provide his family a good life be condemned? Are either needy and noble, or wealthy and lost?

It's a good thing that as we progressed in knowledge; the light of true biblical prosperity was also revealed. The good news is we don't have to be poor to earn God's favor. Quite the opposite, God wants to pour out abundance and prosperity in our lives.

So we ask, what then is God's will for man about money and possessions? Many scripture verses allude to biblical prosperity. Scriptures boldly state that God wants us rich (Genesis 12:1-3; Psalm 35:27; John 10:10). Look back to the story of Abraham. When God called him out of Ur, Abraham was promised that he would have great prosperity and favor - and he did. He also received his miracle, his beloved son Isaac. God knows your heart's desire and give it to you on top of all the other blessings He pours in your life.

You will always find tithing as a foundational principle in attracting wealth. Today we may call it different things but the fact remains: you give and more will be given to you. God has no need for our money and possessions. Tithing is a sign of our trust and obedience to Him. Give God 10% of your money and watch the storehouses of heaven pour out such blessings you will not have room enough for it (Malachi 10:10; Leviticus 27:30).

Prosperity is then a return of your investment in God (Luke 6:38; Deuteronomy 28; Matthew 6:33). Your tithes and offerings, your obedience to His law, partaking in His work here on earth - these are all seeds planted on fertile ground. It is all accounted for and a bountiful harvest is coming your way. You do not give in order to be 'paid back'. No, you can afford to give because you know God is abundantly generous to give you more than what you asked for.

Media and society paints a pretty picture of wealth. While money allows you a comfortable life and frees you from worries that poor people have - it does not free you from the responsibility God clearly expects from you that comes alongside riches (Mark 10:17; Luke 12:48; 1 Timothy 6:17). God created things so by all means, enjoy owning them. However, it is not something you should put your trust in. Having an unhealthy obsession with money makes many people sin and God will not allow that for His children. Guard your heart and keep your priorities straight.

Finally, God empowers us to create wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18; 2 Corinthians 8; Philippians 4:14-18). He wants to bless us so that we ourselves can be a blessing to other. As we allow ourselves to be used by God, expect grace and favor to abound supernaturally in your life.

Abundance and prosperity should never be utilized for self gain and pride. That is not what it's for. Take pleasure in the work of your hands and the fruits of your labor; however never forget that it cannot replace relationships with God and your fellow man. True wealth is about being healthy, being generous and being happy in God. Be all that you can be and money will find its way to you.
