Three Prosperity Principals for Kingdom Living

Prosperity is not limited to material possessions.
I want to make a bold statement!
Prosperity is by choice, poverty is by choice.

3 John 2
Beloved, I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers.

GOD KNOWS MONEY IS ESSENTIAL

Eccl 10:19
19 A feast is made for laughter, and wine makes life merry, but money is the answer for everything. NIV

How do you experience Biblical Prosperity?
2 Chronicles 31:21 sums up biblical prosperity quite well.

2 Chronicles 31:21
And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered (KJV).

S.O.S.

Seeking God
Obeying God
Serving God

SEEKING GOD is the 1st Prosperity Principle

Prosperity and God go hand-in-hand

Matthew 6:31-33, NIV
So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.

How do we seek the Kingdom of God within us?
Pray
Meditate on His Word
Fasting

2 Chronicles 31:21, KJV
And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered.

Don’t forget that, Prosperity is More Than Money
Prosperity encompasses every aspect of life.

OBEYING GOD is the 2nd Prosperity Principle

How do Christians obey God?

Hebrews 8:10
This is the covenant I will establish with the people of Israel after that time, declares the Lord. I will put my laws in their minds and write them on their hearts. I will be their God, and they will be my people (NIV).

“are written in your heart”

Obedience = Blessings

SERVING GOD is the 3rd Prosperity Principle

The Prosperity Gospel asks the question: What can I get from God?
Biblical Prosperity asks the question: How can I serve God?
While the Prosperity Gospel focuses on how you can get God to benefit you, Biblical Prosperity focuses on God using you to benefit (or bless) others. While the Prosperity Gospel promotes greed, materialism and self-centeredness, Biblical Prosperity breaks the yoke of these destructive mindsets.

How Do You Serve God?
-Time
-Talents
-Treasure
-Gifts
-Skills
-Personality
-Advice
-Wisdom

YOUR Talents/Treasure + “TIME” Serving God = Prosperity

Ephesians 6:7-8, NIV
Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people, because you know that the Lord will reward each one for whatever good they do, whether they are slave or free.

S.O.S.

Seek God

Obey God

Serve God
