There is a HUGE debate within the body of Christ about whether or not prosperity is actually of God. I believe that this dissension is a plot of the enemy to cause confusion thus crippling the body of Christ.
But there is a remedy. Psalm 112: 1-4 discusses the issue and gives the answer. In fact Psalm 112 in its entireity tells about the fruit [or the lifestyle] of one who is prosperous.
1PRAISE THE Lord! (Hallelujah!) Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the man who fears (reveres and worships) the Lord, who delights greatly in His commandments.
2His [spiritual] offspring shall be mighty upon earth; the generation of the upright shall be blessed.
3Prosperity and welfare are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.
4Light arises in the darkness for the upright, gracious, compassionate, and just [who are in right standing with God].
5It is well with the man who deals generously and lends, who conducts his affairs with justice.
6He will not be moved forever; the [uncompromisingly] righteous (the upright, in right standing with God) shall be in everlasting remembrance.
7He shall not be afraid of evil tidings; his heart is firmly fixed, trusting (leaning on and being confident) in the Lord.
8His heart is established and steady, he will not be afraid while he waits to see his desire established upon his adversaries.
9He has distributed freely [he has given to the poor and needy]; his righteousness (uprightness and right standing with God) endures forever; his horn shall be exalted in honor.
10The wicked man will see it and be grieved and angered, he will gnash his teeth and disappear [in despair]; the desire of the wicked shall perish and come to nothing.
The answer to the debate is this; true prosperity comes from God and if that prosperity is not predicated by “fear of the Lord” and the prosperity is not followed by righteousness… it is not from El Shaddi, the God of more than enough.
So get excited about your prosperity. The God you serve is ready to give it to you and show you how to use it for His glory, be in the mode of receiving!
