People sometimes equate money with Biblical prosperity. They sometimes measure it with the way their money piles up in their bank accounts. This is absolutely wrong.
Biblical prosperity cannot be found in the form of finances. It is something that can be found inside one’s self. Ironically, the very thing that man desires becomes the root of all evil.
“But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and harmful lusts which drown men in destruction and perdition. For the love of money is a root of all kinds of evil, for which some have strayed from the faith in their greediness, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.“
1 Timothy 6:6-10.
Money seems to be able to buy everything, but only when it is too late that you’ll understand that it cannot buy you true happiness. Happiness cannot be measured by the amount of money in your wallet. Biblical prosperity will elude you forever if you keep on looking for money to be happy.
Understand that even the poorest among the poor finds it easy to get Biblical prosperity. Why is that so? It is because they are happy with whatever God decides to bestow upon them. God provides people with ways to have all this. It is up to man to decide if he indeed wants that Biblical prosperity in his life.
The state of your finances can very well provide you with Biblical prosperity. How? Look beyond the numbers. Choose to look at how wonderful a life God provided you. Count your blessings. And surely, you’ll say that indeed you have found your kind of Biblical prosperity.
Read your Bible every day. Find that it comes to those who are ready to have it. It is not as elusive as some people have described it to be. As a matter of fact, it is one of the easiest to achieve.
Stop doing your Mathematics in the wrong way. Be guided with the philosophy behind it. Subtract your greed, envy and fears. Add appreciation, belief and values. With this, you’ll end up with blessings you have never asked to have. This is Biblical prosperity.
And of course, ensure that your prosperity will last by sharing it with others. Live by it and let others live.
Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously.
Each man should give what he has decided in his heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.
2 Cor. 9 6,7
Always remember that there are also those who seek the Divine Providence of prosperity. Be their selfless guiding light, the way God did it for you.
