God's Plan of Prosperity
Is anybody here interested in being prosperous? I hope that you are because God is interested in your being prosperous.
Did you know that God gets pleasure from seeing your prosper? Psalm 35:27 says this: "Let them shout for joy and rejoice, who favors my vindication; and let them say continually, 'The Lord be magnified, who delights in the prosperity of His servant." Did you know that was in the Bible? It says that God is pleased when you are prosperous.
As a matter of fact, one of the most unqualified promises in the entire Bible is found in Psalm 1:1-3, when it says, "Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked or stand in the way of sinners or sit in the seat of mockers. But his delight is in the law of the Lord and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. (Get this!) Whatever he does prospers." WHATEVER HE DOES PROSPERS!
Now here is the problem; the minute I say that God wants you to be prosperous, most of us immediately think, "Boy that means I am going to be wealthy." Folks the truth is you may have more money than God can trust you with now! So, let me define prosperity for us: A prosperous life is one in which your needs are being met, and you are fulfilled, and you can have the capacity to enjoy the blessings of God. That is prosperity!
So here is the question with that definition: Why are so many people NOT prosperous? For the answer look at Proverbs 28:13: "He who conceals his sins DOES NOT PROSPER, but whoever confesses and renounces them finds mercy."
In order to enjoy the prosperity that God wants you to experience in your life you have to be willing to deal with the roadblocks to that prosperity. And the roadblock to prosperity is sin.
I. I Must Be Real With God.
