Psalm 35:22-28
Isaiah 53:10 wherever Jesus Christ went He did well. He was not a failure, He was prosperous.

3John 1:2; 1 Timothy 4-15.
There are people that can not prosper, through no fault of theirs. May it never be your portion in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Zechariah 1:7; a life that does not prosper is living a life unfulfilled potential.

When your life is prosperous, everything works for you. It means you carry grace, and when you step into a situation, things begin to change for the better.

When there is no prosperity, mockery and shame enter.

1 Chronicles 4:10.

Why must you prosper?

  1. Because it’s expected of you. God didn’t create you to suffer Romans 8:19.

Characteristics of prosperity.

  1. Divine approval. Anytime you do something, it works well. When things are hard for others, they’re easier for you. Joshua 1:8
  2. Good fortune follows you. 1 John 3:2-
  3. Peace.

Hindrances to Prosperity

  1. Divine embargo. Proverbs 1:29-31.
  2. When you are unaware of your state. Psalm 49:20. The prodigal son did not understand his state, which is why he lacked prosperity. Luke 15:16.
  3. Failure to abide in Christ John 15:4. Some may argue that there are people making it without God, but David considered it in Psalm 73:1 -28.
  4. Resistance to brokenness. When your heart is still hard. John 12:24; you must die to yourself. You must understand that the life you live is by the grace of God; Galatians 2:20.
  5. When people live a life of disobedience and carelessness. Deuternonmy 8:18 you must choose the prosperity from God and not that of the world. Deuteronomy 28:1; Psalm 66:18; Isaiah 1:19.
  6. When the spirit is corrupted. God will not join Himself to you when our spirit is corrupted. A hostile or quarrelsome spirit can not be helped by God.
  7. Ignorance; Ecclesiastes 10:15, not just ignorance but also refusal to learn. If you don’t know and you don’t accept that you don’t know, you hinder yourself.

How to Prosper.

  1. To recognise and respect the spiritual aspect of prosperity. There is a pattern and process with God.
  2. You must settle your destiny on the altar with God. Hebrews 4:16.
  3. Desire to be a blessing and a carrier of blessing. You only need to release your life to be used by God. What the world didn’t give to you can’t be taken by the world.
  4. Live a spirit filled life. Praying and seeking the face of God at all times. Represent God in your thoughts, your words, and your character.
