Seek God And Prosper
Seek God & Prosper
This Book of the Law shall not depart out of your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, that you may observe and do according to all that is written in it. For then you shall make your way prosperous, and then you shall deal wisely and have good success.
Joshua 1:8 (Amp)
God has given us a great guide book to prosperity and success, His Word. Now when I say prosperity and success you may be thinking only money and prestige. I'm sure God desires us to have all the money we need and an abundance so that we can help others. However, in this context I think He is also referring to prosperity in the Kingdom and success in living the life He designed for all His family to live. We all do truly believe in this. If not we'd not study in school to learn what we need to get the jobs we may be aiming for. We'd not study to learn what God is saying to us in His Word as we apply ourselves to Bible study.
Faith people is who we are when we repent of our sins and ask Jesus into our lives. Yes, we are faith people. Surely we're not doubt people. Who ever saw Jesus go around or any of the Disciples for that matter teaching people to doubt. No, quite the contrary. We are to exercise the faith given to us, trust God, even when things don't appear to be working out like they're supposed to.
Psalm 91:1 states that the one who dwells in the secret place of the Most High will abide in the shadow of the Almighty. Now that's a big shadow of a BIG GOD. Be encouraged that as you seek God's face in His Word, walk in faith and believe that what God says He will do, you will then be prosperous and have good success in what He sends you out to do. Read 2 Chronicles 7:14! Be encouraged.
In His Love and Service,
