God wants His children to develop and flourish with many types of prosperity. This includes the prosperity of growing closeness with Jesus and the Holy Spirit, and the blessing to use His eternal knowledge and wisdom that addresses all things! Prosperity for God’s Glory includes when a child of God receives and gives the love of Jesus, which is recorded eternally in Heaven!
God’s children can prosper in the wisdom of the riches of love’s gratitude – seeking and expressing new depths of thankful praise, adoration, and worship of Jesus! A child of God can grow in exhilaration to the senses, as a vessel of receiving, embracing, and the pouring out of the pureness of the fruits of the Holy Spirit!
Joyful prosperity can include witnessing Holy Jesus’ love and power definitively helping loved ones and others – and by devoting and sacrificing one’s own life to giving the testimony of Holy Jesus!
In this challenging world, there are many human needs for survival – and human hearts can have, and even yearn, for varying desires. Better, at times, is the feeling of achievement to start from scratch to contribute to the building of prosperity – than to have prosperity simply given. In reflection to having been given or falling into ‘sudden’ worldly prosperity – and a void within of the wisdom ‘to have grown’ that prosperity – can be without the same fulfillment of enjoyment of the prosperity.
No matter the amount or type – prosperity while in neglect of God’s precise will – senses unease. Prosperity by the will of Jesus – has peace.
A child of God can pray for monetary and material wealth from Jesus, in which Jesus has granted many prayers. Even without asking, Jesus has inundated a percentage of His children with great wealth. When God asked Solomon what he wanted, he only wanted one thing: “wisdom.” God was moved by this, and made Solomon the wealthiest person on the planet.
Scripture reveals that Jesus might keep some people in poverty for varying reasons – and some people have pleasure in a simplistic and minimalistic lifestyle. The reality is; there has never been a time-period where everyone was wealthy, or even where more people than not, were wealthy. Paul declared that he was content with or without riches, as he became so in-love with God’s Holy Spiritual presence, which more than sufficed and pleased. Those in poverty are more able to relate to others in poverty, including being more receptive to council. In addition, if there is that much less of other things to focus on, it is easier to focus on closeness with the presence of God’s Holy Spirit.
God made Joseph, Jacob’s son, probably more financially wealthy than anyone on the planet today. But God and Joseph had the same priority with each other – to only grow closer with each other. Before becoming financially wealthy, Joseph first lived through many years of perfect lessons – so that no matter if rich or poor – Joseph remained humble and close to God’s Holy presence. Some people might think that they can have a substantial amount of money and stay close to God’s presence, but most people cannot.
Having a Christ-like love for God, which includes the beautiful feelings of the absolute acceptance of the Holy Spirit’s presence – yields being content – just by God’s presence – with or without material wealth.
Prosperity is the presence of Holy God, who is Spirit, truth, love, and life, giving all that we have. The love from the promise of eternal life, is prosperity! Prosperity is to love Jesus – as His love for us, even suffered ‘our’ sins on a cross!
A child of God can pray for their desires. Jesus, at times, adjusts the logistics. A blessing might not initially seem to be what was prayed for, but it is tailored for a better than expected end result. A seasoned and enlightened child of God embraces that God is God, and that they are a child of God – understanding that God knows the prosperity that will suffice and please them even better than they do. The best that a child of God knows is very limited. God knows all things. This includes parts of His children that they don’t know of; such as the joy that they can feel from things that they simply have not yet known or experienced!
Through obedience to the love and will of God’s Holy Spirit – someone can live life past human capacity, in novel prosperity that was never thought of! This includes for a better personal life, to help loved ones and others, and to give God Glory!
Our loving Holy Father certainly knows how to touch His children’s hearts in comfort and joy – and yield life successes in ways that they have never dreamed of. Almighty God, our Father, is generous to give enlightenment of His wisdom for the best ways to lead loved ones and others to repentance and Jesus!
Pride and vanity seek gains for self – that won’t lead themselves or others to grow in Christ-like character. There can be comfort in material wealth, but no comfort or peace when the Spirit and Word are not placed above all worldly.
No matter how far that someone has prospered in wisdom – the wise know – to seek more wisdom. Love’s selfless riches – prosper in the joy to spread seeds of wisdom for others to prosper. Love’s foresight in a servant knows that the specifics of wisdom being taught to them by God – is needed for future divine appointments, to witness to specific people that God will align without hope.
The brokenhearted can prosper in ways that all money could not do to help them, by hearing just a few caring words! The Spirit – and money – both exist in this world, but no matter the money, but first the Spirit! Feeling new life, is prosperity in Christ-like love; two people growing together, as one, on a novel path …. to selflessly give a synergy of Glory to God!
Blessed are the feelings of love that grows in gratitude for Jesus, and faith’s confidence in trusting Jesus. Prosperity is, having smiles after a prayer – witnessing God’s Holy love and power make direct intercessions! Prosperity is receiving the wisdom that perfectly addresses a situation. It is not from worldly, but from the Spirit and the Spirit’s wisdom – that guides loved ones to eternal life!
All things, come from God. Increase of someone’s desires for the Spirit and Word, yield growing ‘openness’ to prosperity. The Spirit placed first, as one’s only God, and the Spirit takes care of all else!
Jesus ‘is’ love and wisdom – only through which is the prosperity of peace, lasting purposes, the greatest possible fulfillment in life, and an expected promised end. Love and joy prays within God’s Holy Spirit, seeking each step, each seed of wisdom needed – to plant, build, and sustain Holy lasting prosperity within those who we love and influence … giving our Father deserving Glory in Jesus!
Colossians 2:2,3 That their hearts might be comforted, being knit together in love, and unto all riches of the full assurance of understanding, to the acknowledgement of the mystery of God, and of the Father, and of Christ; (3) In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge.
Isaiah 11:2 And the Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the LORD.
Psalm 35:27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which has pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
James Rathman: Evangelist
