EMPOWERED TO PROSPER.
Pastor Chris

Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and
ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and
that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall
ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you (John15:16).

Psalm 1:3 reveals something phenomenal about you,and the life of extraordinary prosperity God hascalled you to. It says, “And he shall be like a tree planted bythe rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;his leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” This should let you know that your prosperity isn’tdependent on the economics and economies of this world.

The people of the world spend time looking for the moving or “booming” business or trade to invest in. That shouldn’t be your thinking, as the seed of Abraham. Think from a higher level.

Notice again the words of the Spirit in Psalm 1:3: “…and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.” He didn’t say you’ll prosper if the business is what’s trending or booming. The emphasis is “whatsoever”; in other words, there’s an
empowerment in your life to cause you to prosper in all
things.

In the Old Testament, Moses spoke to the children of Israel, and gave them God’s promises. Imagine what he said God would do for them: “And he will love thee, and bless thee, and multiply thee: he will also bless the fruit of thy womb, and the fruit of thy land, thy corn, and thy wine, and thine oil, the increase of thy kine, and the flocks of thy sheep, in the land which he sware unto thy fathers to give thee” (Deuteronomy 7:13).

Think about that! Everything that had to do with them was blessed. As long as it was connected to them, it prospered.

Now, in the New Testament, we have a better covenant, established upon better promises: “But now hath he obtained a more excellent ministry, by how much also he is the mediator of a better covenant, which was established upon better promises” (Hebrews 8:6).

Therefore, anything you’re involved in should, of necessity, prosper; anything! The important factor isn’t what’s trending; the important factor is you. If you’re in it, then it’s blessed. Hallelujah!

PRAYER
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for the inherent ability in me to prosper in all that I do. As the seed of Abraham, everything that’s connected to me is blessed — my finances, business, job, family, etc. I walk in the consciousness that I’m blessed to be a blessing, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.

FURTHER STUDY
Galatians 3:8-9
And the scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the heathen through faith, preached before the gospel unto Abraham, saying, In thee shall all nations be blessed. [9] So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

Galatians 3:28-29
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus. [29] And if ye be Christ's, then are ye Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise.

Jeremiah 17:7-8 Blessed is the man that trusteth in the Lord, and whose hope the Lord is. [8] For he shall be as a tree planted by the waters, and that spreadeth out her roots by the river, and shall not see when heat cometh, but her leaf shall be green; and shall not be careful in the year of drought, neither shall cease from yielding fruit.
