Today I am going to embark on a 40 week study (originally a 40 day study that I've decided to take weekly: 1 thought a week instead of 1 thought a day). The study was started by Pastor George Pearsons, from Eagle Mountain International Church in Fort Worth, TX.
So let's start:
God Wants Us to Prosper
“He will spend his days in prosperity and his descendants will inherit the land.” (Psalm 25:13, NIV)
A. 3 John 2:
1. “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
2. AMP: “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way….”
B. 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
hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.”
C. Deuteronomy 8:18: “Thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is He that giveth thee the power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant
which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.”
D. 2 Chronicles 16:9: “For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is
perfect toward him….”
E. Proverbs 10:22: “The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and He addeth no sorrow with it.”
F. Philippians 4:19:
1. “But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”
2. AMP: “And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus.”
G. God has a covenant determination to prosper us. Our responsibility is to believe it and receive it.
H. True prosperity is the ability to use God’s power to meet the needs of mankind in every realm of life—spirit, soul, body, financially, emotionally, etc.
