                                                       10 PRINCIPLES OF PROSPERITY

TEXT: GENESIS 1:27-30

The plan of God for man at creation is to live a life of dominion over everything that he has created. God entrust the whole earth to man, he gave man everything he will ever need. The ability to sustain a wealthy life was deposited in man at creation but man lost it to the devil. The fact that man lost it to the devil does not eradicate the truth of the initial plan of God for mankind, no wonder Jesus said I came that they might have life and have it in abundance. There was a huge investment in man by God at creation. The whole creation is waiting for the manifestation of the investment that God made on man, which is the manifestation of the original plan of God for his children. It is the plan of God for us to prosper and be in good health even as our soul prospers. So, God has a total package of prosperity for us. As you open your heart to receive this truth God will deliver your prosperity package to you in Jesus name.

WHAT IS PROSPERITY?

Many people see prosperity as having a lot of money, others see it as being successful economically. Your definition of prosperity will help you to define your goal. The Webster dictionary defines prosperity as good fortune. Prosperity is a successful, flourishing or thriving condition.  It must cut across every aspect of a man’s existence i.e. spirit, soul and body and must be progressive.  True prosperity comes from God and God is not a man that he should lie. Deut.8:18 “And you shall remember the Lord your God for it is he that giveth thee power to make wealth”. God is a covenant keeping God so he operates by covenant. He said to Abraham in Genesis17:1-2, walk ye before me and be thou perfect and I will make my covenant between me and thee and multiply thee exceedingly. Abraham must walk before God with a perfect heart for God to multiply him. So as a child of God prosperity is your redemptive right.  Prov23:4-5 “labour not to be rich, cease from thy own wisdom wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? For riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven. Can you imagine the frustration in trying to catch a bird that is flying in the air why you are running on foot? It is the blessings of the lord that makes rich and added no sorrow (prov10:22). God made a covenant to prosper us so your prosperity and my prosperity is covenant base (Deut8:7-18), you will eat without scarcity and build goodly houses and live in them v18 then you shall remember the lord your God who gave you power to make wealth. Remember that a man cannot bless you more than what he has. No one employee can be richer than his employer. So prosperity is fulfilling all round God’s divine plan for your life, it does not answer to prayers but covenant principles.  We shall be looking at some of these covenant principles according to the scripture.

 

COVENANT PRINCIPLES OF PROSPERITY.

  • TITHING 

 

  1. This is one of the covenant obligations of the believer. God is a covenant keeping God (psalm 89:34) my covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips. Jer33:20-21 “if you can break my covenant of the day and of the night and that there should not be day and night in their season. Tithe is a covenant commitment to God to bless you. It is a command form God. Lev 27:30 “all the tithe of the land whether of the seed of the land or fruit of the tree is the lord, it is holly unto THE LORD.Mal3:10 “bring all the tithe and offering in my store house that there will meat in my house and prove me in this if I will not open the windows of heaven and pour you a blessing that there will be no room enough to accommodate and I will rebuke the devourer for your sake”. Tithe is a 10% of all your increase, friends the 10% of your increase is a covenant demand to prosper you. Prov3:9-10 “honour the lord with all your substance and with the first fruit of all thy increase so shall your barns will be filled plenty and thy presses shall burst out with new wine. Tithe is to secure your inheritance. Put your faith on line by engaging in this covenant and see God taking you high.
  2. GIVING AND RECEIVING 
  3. Here are some of the giving avenues that will provoke your prosperity;
  4. It is what you sow that you will receive. The point of giving is the point of sowing. (luke6:38) “Give and it shall be giving to you good measure, pressed down and shaking together and running over shall men give to your bosom. Giving is the attitude of God, God gave his only begotten son in order to win men back to himself. Jesus was a seed that God sow in giving and you can see the harvest. It is better to give than to receive (Act20:35). When you give, you give with a cheerful heart and not grudgingly as if you are oblige to give 2Cor9:7 “every man according as he has purpose in his heart, so let him give not grudgingly or of necessity for God love a cheerful giver”. Give out of your need, and you will provoke heaven to respond to your need. Give with a willing heart like Abraham who did not argue with God but willingly offered his only son Isaac to God. Giving naturally open you up to receiving. If you don’t give out what you have you cannot get what you need. If you are not faithful in the little you have, God will not commit much into your hand. God is not poor when he ask you to give, but he is looking for something in your hand to multiply. For you to be in the path of prosperity, you must be on the platform of giving and receiving.
  • Giving for kingdom promotion. Your given for evangelism and outreach programs are avenue for God to prosper you. Everything about God’s kingdom must interest you because your prosperity is tied to it. Matt6:33
  • Give to the prophet. Prophets are spiritual agents of God and when you give to them you receive prophet’s reward. 1Kg17:11-16. The widow gave to Elijah and she never knew lack all through the time of famine.
  • Give to the poor. When you give to the poor, you give to the lord and the lord is not a debtor. Deut15:11, the poor you will always have around you.
  • Give to your parents. Honour your father and mother that it may be well with you. You have a responsibility to give to your parents, it is a command from God. Exo 20:12.
