And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and
heirs according to the promise (Galatians 3:29).
If as a Christian you’ve been praying, “O God, prosper
me,” then you’ve been praying amiss, because our
prosperity, as far as God is concerned, is a settled fact. In
Christ Jesus, we’re heirs of prosperity. It’s like praying that
God should make you a human being. That’s not going to
work! In the same way that the righteousness of God was
imparted to your spirit when you were born again, prosperity
and greatness have been imparted to your spirit.
2 Corinthians 8:9 says, “For ye know the grace of
our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your
sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be
rich.” What does this mean? First, understand that Jesus never
became poor spiritually. So, the scripture above is talking
about physical, material, and financial blessings. Jesus became
poor for your sake, so that from what He gave up, you might
Think about this: God laid our sins on Jesus on the
cross, and conferred His righteousness on us at His
resurrection. In Christ, you’re born His heir. All of God’s
wealth and resources belong to you because you’re His heir.
The Bible says the silver, gold, precious stones and the whole
world belong to Him: “The silver is mine, and the gold is mine,
saith the Lord of hosts” (Haggai 2:8). “For every beast of the
forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all
the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are
mine…for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof” (Psalm
So, as an heir of God, and joint heir with Christ, the silver, the gold, the cattle upon a thousand hills, the world and
the fullness thereof, belong to you as much as they belong
to Him. No wonder the Bible says, “all things are yours” (1
Corinthians 3:21). See yourself in this light, for this is the truth
about your prosperity.
Don’t see your job or business as your source of
income, but as a medium to bless others. Reject poverty,
sickness, and everything that’s inconsistent with the realities
of the God-life, and live a joyful, prosperous life every day.
Dear Father, I thank you for this
great inheritance, which you’ve
bequeathed to me in Christ. I’ll
never be broke in my life; I walk
in abundance, health and success
all my days, because that’s your
desire for me. Thank you for this
great honour, in Jesus’ Name.
