“Ephesians 1:11 “In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will.”
“Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.”
Your earthly father may not have left you an inheritance. You may not even have anything to look forward to from your earthly father as an inheritance. But as we see in today’s Scripture, everyone in Christ Jesus has obtained an inheritance, and one of the inheritances that we have received in Christ is prosperity. There are many who have a big challenge with the subject of prosperity. The reason is because of their ignorance of God’s Word.
When you look at God’s original plan for man from the beginning, you’ll see how God made the earth, and then made man, and planted a garden called ‘Eden’ and put the man there. Eden means ‘pleasure’. This means that God put the man in a place of overflowing abundance; a place where there was no lack. What God did in the beginning shows us that poverty was not, and is still not part of His plan for man. God designed for man to live in prosperity; but when sin came into the world, man fell from that original intent of God. Jesus came to restore us to God’s original idea. Therefore, to say that poverty is part of Christianity is to deny the whole essence of the Scriptures; it is to deny the fact that God is a good God. A good God couldn’t have planned poverty as part of His good plan for His good children. Prosperity is eternally God’s plan for His children.
Beloved, you need to renew your mind to God’s prosperity plan for you in Christ Jesus. You have an inheritance in Christ. Jesus Christ was broken for you at Calvary that you might not be broke. Your broke days are over! Your inheritance in Christ is incorruptible. The kind of prosperity that is available in Christ is without sorrow and heartaches. Renew your mind to the Word, that you are not a poor man trying to be rich, no! You are a blessed and a rich child of God who is discovering his or her new wealth status. You are blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Amen and Amen!
My Solid Front (Confession): In the Name of Jesus, I declare that prosperity is mine; God’s will for me is prosperity; therefore I live the prosperous life. In all that I do, I declare that I prosper. Amen.
