TOPIC: UNDERSTANDING HOW GOD PROSPERS (PART 2)
Scripture: Psalm 1: 3. And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
Beloved, understanding of how God prospers His children has a way of turning on our joy and peace. It brings certainty that all your seeds must return back to you.
How does God prosper?
1. By commanding blessings upon your store house(details in yesterday’s meditation)
2. By commanding blessings upon the works of your hands (Deur.28;7): God promised to bless the works of your hands because this is God’s primary way of blessing His children, so get engaged in doing something with your hands. For the blessing of God is looking for the works of your hands to rest upon. For the Bible said:
Psalm 1: 3. .. whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
So, if there’s no work, we will be denying ourselves certain dimensions of the blessing that makes for prosperity. God hates idleness, that is why the Bible said:
Proverbs 10: 4. He becometh poor that dealeth with a slack hand: but the hand of the diligent maketh rich.
When your hands are slack to create value and render service, poverty is inevitable. This is why the Bible said:
Proverbs 14: 23. In all labour there is profit: but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.
In all labour means whatever you do, whether it is with your brain or with your hands, there’s profit. The Bible said:
Ephesians 4: 28. Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth.
Here the Bible said, let the works of your hands be a legitimate one not fraudulent deals, not hacker that hacks into people’s account and make people to weep. Not prostitutes or dealings on drugs.
The same scripture said: that he may have to give to him that needeth.
The reason for work is so that you will have something to give to those that have needs. So God will be blessing you through the works of your hands turning you into a blessing.
3. Through outpouring of divine ideas: It was Pastor Sam Adeyemi that said “ideas rule the world”! That implies that if you are in possession of ideas you could rule in certain realms of life. The giant industry you are seeing today began as an idea in someone’s mind. The cars and aircraft started as ideas in someone’s mind. Every innovation whatsoever is a product of ideas.
So you can become distinguished through ideas! Your distinction is in doing what others hasn’t done before in an exceptional way, aynd that can only happen by divine ideas. Today, we celebrate Micheal Faraday for his invention, the Wright brothers that invented the aircraft, Thomas Edison for inventing electric bulb etc all these are brilliant ideas!
Beloved, God prospers by releasing divine ideas to His children. And as many as are able to harness the ideas received, and create values with it will be rewarded in the long run! Some ideas are actually divine instructions that when complied with can bring you a great fortune.
Examples of men that received divine ideas
A. Noah(Gen.6:14-16); He built the largest ship (Ark) that saved him and his family.
B. Abraham: He was the first to carry out cattle ranching and dig wells to feed his cattle.
C. Isaac(Gen.26:18); He carried out irrigation farming to sustain his crops even in the time of drought.
D. Jacob(Gen.30:37-39): He conducted the first genetic engineering by divine ideas, got the species of cattle he wanted from Laban’s cattle.
Beloved, now that you are born again and transformed you have the mind of Christ, so expect the rain of divine ideas as you walk in the covenant and obey the law of sowing and reaping.
Remember this : Heaven is real and hell is real! The decision to spend eternity with God is best made now, give your heart to Jesus today.
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord, I receive the rain of ideas that will enable me to rule my world for your kingdom in the name of Jesus.
– I prophesy the rain of Divine ideas that will put you over recieve it now in Jesus name
– The he rain of prosperity upon the works of your hands recieve it now in Jesus name.
