THE KEYS TO ACCESSING PROSPERITY
TOPIC: THE KEYS TO ACCESSING PROSPERITY
Scripture: Ecclesiastes 10: 15. The labour of the foolish wearieth every one of them, because he knoweth not how to go to the city.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! Doors open in response to keys! Every door you desire to open, once you are in possession of the keys the door open without hesitation.
So also is the door of prosperity, once you are in possession of the relevant keys, you can access the door. Today, we shall examine some of the keys that can grant access to prosperity.
From our anchor scripture (Ecc.10:15), we observe that men struggle because they don’t know how!
The reason why we can stand before the door of prosperity and it will refuse to open is because we don’t know the right key that can open the door.
What are the keys to Prosperity?
1. The key of sacrifice:
Psalm 50: 5. Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice.
Sacrifice is a key that can open any door including that of prosperity. It closed down the door of the plague of death in the days of David (2Sam.24;12-25);
2 Samuel 24: 25. And David built there an altar unto the LORD, and offered burnt offerings and peace offerings. So the LORD was intreated for the land, and the plague was stayed from Israel.
Sacrifice opened the door of riches and honour to Solomon (1Kg.3:3-13). Sacrifice though painful but it is rewarding;
Psalm 126: 5. They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.
2. The key of absolute dependence on God(Luke 16:13); God hates alternatives. So many of us have alternatives that have taken the place of God in our hearts. And whatever takes the place of God is an idol!
So your idol could be your relationship, your job, your business or your love for money. Once God sees an idol, He closes the door against you. For the Bible said:
Psalm 16: 4. Their sorrows shall be multiplied that hasten after another god:…
3. The key of service: One major key that attracts the blessing is the key of service! The Bible said
Exodus 23: 25. And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee.
In this one aspect of the covenant of prosperity, God is saying, “you serve me, then I will bless.” And it is the blessing of God that makes one rich! He will also bless your food and drinks so that you don’t get sick.
Several person have laid hold on this key and they became high flyers in life.
A good example is Job, he served God and even the devil was aware of it(Job 1: 9).
Beloved let every devil in hell know that you have decided to serve this God of Heaven! For the Bible said:
Job 36: 11. If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures.
Another example is David:
Acts 13: 36. For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption:
How do you serve?
A. With all your heart: A divided heart can not serve God acceptably. (Matt. 6: 24).
B. With your time: The unit of life is time! Whatever is in control of your time is in control of your life. It takes time to serve God which many complain about not having time. (Heb. 12: 28).
C. With your resources: David served the Lord with his resources such that, out of his own treasure, he set apart building materials for the building of the house of God.(1 Chro. 29: 3).
Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real. To spend eternity with God then we must begin right here on earth to serve Him.
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord, I receive grace to be sacrificial, I reject idolatry and I serve you acceptably in the name of Jesus.
– I prophesy the grace to enter into a covenant with God through your sacrifice, receive it now in the name of Jesus.
– Your service to God shall produce results for you in the name of Jesus.
