Feature Story: God Created You To Prosper

Does God want you to be rich? Or is money the root of all evil? Should we beware the “prosperity gospel”? Should we fear preachers who teach “health & wealth”?

7 Biblical Truths That Prove God Wants Us To Prosper – And Why!

Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.
3 John 1:2

  1. You are a creator (Genesis 1:1, Genesis 1:27)
  2. Wealth is creation (Deuteronomy 8:18, Romans 4:17)
  3. The world is in darkness (Isaiah 60:1-5, Matthew 5:14-16)
  4. You are called to be a king (1 Peter 2:9, Revelation 1:5-6)
  5. To break bondage (Proverbs 22:7)
  6. “M&M Evangelism” (James 2:15-17)
  7. You are blessed to be a blessing (Genesis 12:2-3, Genesis 13:2, Galatians 3:16, Galatians 3:27-29)
The nobility and service of the king/entrepreneur:The people will curse him who withholds grain,
But blessing will be on the head of him who sells it.
Proverbs 11:26

Spiritual Foundations

Don't be confused when people tell you “there's a purpose in everything.” God can use anything – but not everything that happens on Earth is His will. That's why He told us to pray for His will be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven.

Pray then like this: “Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name. Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven. Matthew 6:9-10
