BIBLE READING: GENESIS 39; 2 PETER 1:1-4
Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers 3 John 2 (NKJV).
God has paid the Price for our Total Prosperity through the Death of Jesus Christ on the Cross.
The Sacrifice on the Cross purchased for us healing, health, favour, soundness of mind, financial prosperity etc. We have a Heavenly Account where all these Unsearchable and Inexhaustible Riches have been deposited for us in Christ. Ephesians 1:3 says; Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the Heavenly Places in Christ.
These Inexaustibile Resources are released to us physically through knowledge — “According as his Divine Power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the Knowledge of Him that hath called us to glory and virtue” 2 Pet.1: 3 (KJV).
God is going to prosper you to the degree of your soul’s prosperity. The soul consists of your mind, will and emotions. You need to start planting the seeds of prosperity found in God’s Word in your mind, will and emotions and as the seeds grows, they will produce a great harvest.
When Joseph was sold as a slave to the Egyptians, he did not have any money to his name. He did not even have his freedom. He had been sold as a slave, but right in the middle of his slavery, God gave Joseph such wisdom and ability that he made his owner prosper. As a result, the man put Joseph in charge of all his possessions.
Later, Joseph was put in prison. There is really not much opportunity for advancement in prison, but God gave him insight that no other man in Egypt had. That insight leapfrogged him to the highest position on Pharaoh’s staff. Not as a slave but as the most honoured man in the entire country next to Pharaoh himself. He rode along in a chariot and people literally bowed down before him. During a worldwide famine, Joseph was in charge of all the food. Now that’s prosperity!
How did God accomplish all that? By prospering Joseph’s soul. No matter how dismal his situation became, no matter how impossible his problems were, God was able to reveal the spiritual secrets that would open the door of success for him.
That is what makes God’s method of prospering so exciting. It works anywhere and everywhere. It will work in the poorest countries on the face of the earth just like it will work in a country like the United States. And you can be sure that it will work for you!
Father, open my eyes that I may behold great and wondrous things in your Word in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
