[Prosperity and Wealth Is the Will of God for You ! For the Lord takes pleasure in the prosperity of his children !
The Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy Father's house, unto a land that I will shew thee. And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing. And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee; and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed. Genesis 112:1-3.
God Almighty made a covenant with Abraham, whom we have come to know as the Father of Faith. And that covenant included divine prosperity. It was a covenant of wealth, and God desires no less for us today who are the seed of Abraham ( Gal. 3:29 ). In Christ, we need to know that we have a covenant with God, a covenant that includes financial and material wealth.
If you are in covenant with God through the New Birth, and have excepted Jesus Christ as Savior, you need to know that you are in covenant with God. He wants you to learn how to become a commander of covenant wealth. What's all that mean ? It means you're not asking, but commanding wealth on behalf of Father God, to use as He sees fit, for His plans and purposes. And one of His purposes for wealth is to bless His Children abundantly. Wealth is a covenant promise of God to His Children that comes through their faith in and their obedience to Him.
In Genesis 12:1-3, we read that after God had spoken to Abram in verse 1, commanding him to leave his country and to go to a different land, God said something else to Abram. God said that He would bless him and make him a blessing, Abram, who later was named Abraham, obeyed the Lord, and we know that God fulfilled everything He had spoken to Abraham concerning that covenant promise.
It's not enough to know your rights. You have to know your ability!
Deuteronomy 8:18 says, "But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God; for it is he that giveth thee power ( ability ) to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day ".
We can see in Genesis 12:1-3 and Deuteronomy 8:18, that not only does God want us to walk in covenant wealth, He has given us the ability to walk in covenant wealth. God gives us the ability to walk in covenant wealth. Why does God do this ? That He may establish and make firm His Covenant with you.
Wealth is part of God's covenant with His children for the assignment or job that He wants them to do while they are on this earth. Tha means walking in the overflow, walking in abundance, increase, walking as the lender and not the borrower, walking in your needs and desires being met and walking in your dreams, your desires being ulfilled and the Father's assignment being carried out while you are on this earth.
God did not say He would give you wealth; He said He would give you the power, ability, to get wealth. In other words, the responsibility for your getting wealth is not on God, it's on you! When you activate the power to get wealth, the wealth will manifest. It was a covenant transaction for the children of israel to become wealthy. God had made them rich. Then He cancelled their debt. They had borrowed from the Egyptians, and their debt was cancelled in the Red Sea.
Your financial well being is a covenant matter, because God has already taken care of it for you. Now we have to do our part, you have to activate your authority. You can't just sit on your duff, and do nothing. You need to access the anointing, you have to do what the word says. You have to be creative, being led by the Holy Spirit. God will put thoughts into your mind, he will give you idea's. We can't be idle. We need to be about the Father's buisness. When God puts a desire, a thought into your mind and heart, he will make it happen, as you walk and stand in faith. We are not robots, we have a choice, to activate those God Given idea's, and make them happen, as the Lord leads or just sit around and wait for money to float down from heaven, which will not happen. We have to put God first, and obey his word, his covenant. If we do our part, God will do his part.
We are not to be coveteous, for our own selfish reasons. We must walk in love and obedience. If it is only for your greed, it will fall apart sooner of later. We are the seed of Abraham, and his promises are yea and amen, to those who believe. God doesn't mind you having nice things, as it brings Glory to God, showing his children prosper in all their ways. For years people have been misled to think poverty brings Glory to God.
Let's walk in the fact we are Abraham's Seed, and all the promises to Abraham are yes and amen to us, in this day and age. Don't be deceived, God met what he said. My Father owns the cattle on a thousand hills. His Covenant is for any who are in Christ and who are the seed of Abraham. I am going to walk in that authority and ability. God is no respecter of persons. What he did for Abraham , he will do for me. Our job is to believe, act in faith, knowing the Favor of God is with me, and nothing is impossible with Christ. To use my God Given ability to create wealth, so that the gospel shall be preached through out the world, that i have the finances to help people, to create, and to be a Blessing, in the name of Jesus, and yes even be blessed to be a blessing. God cares what brings us joy and pleasure, and he loves to give you nice things, houses, lands, and favor.
Thanking God this day, that I am highly favored of God, and He has given me the power to get wealth.
