Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ! Welcome to “The Warriors Corner”! Today, I will continue the discussion on “The Prosperous Life.” Please read “The Prosperous Life-Part 1 if you haven’t done so already. https://talithacumi3.wordpress.com/2014/11/03/the-prosperous-life-part-1/ Beloved, my prayer is that you understand that you must collaborate with God in order to manifest his glory in every area of your life. You must believe in the finished works of Jesus, thank him for what he has already done, and walk through the door of faith.
Beloved, consider the following adaptation from Mrs. Gloria Copeland’s article: “True Prosperity.” In order to prosper, you must first have a prosperous soul. That’s the beginning of the prosperous life. But how do you get there? My journey to the prosperous life began years ago when I read Matthew 6:33 in a Bible Ken’s mother had given him: “But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” In The Amplified Bible it says to seek “His way of doing and being right.” That’s the foundation of God’s prosperity. When I found that verse, I was ready to try God’s way since I needed a lot of things and my way wasn’t working.
I discovered that God’s prosperity isn’t just financial blessings. It also includes healing, protection, favor, wisdom, success, well-being and every good thing you could possibly need—all the good things Jesus paid for you to have. He took our place and bore the curse of our sin so we can live in the blessing. “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree: That the blessing of Abraham might come on the Gentiles through Jesus Christ.” (Galatians 3:13-14). Isaiah 53:5 says, “The chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole” (The Amplified Bible). The Hebrew word for peace in this scripture is shalom. It basically means “nothing missing, nothing broken,” or wholeness in every area of your life—spirit, soul and body. That kind of prosperous life doesn’t just happen. And it doesn’t happen overnight. But the foundation for true prosperity begins with these seven steps: Walking in truth, Faithfulness, Diligence, Tithing, Sowing, Believing, and Saying. (Copeland, Gloria 2009.)
Friends, will you answer the clarion call to follow Matthew 6:33, and collaborate with God to cultivate your prosperous life? Let’s all make the commitment to become better in every facet of our lives. Until we meet again warriors… I love you to life!
