Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. – 3 John 1:2, NKJV
Joel Osteen Daily Devotional 15 November 2022 Message
Prosperity is so much more than having finances. It’s having your health. It’s having peace in your mind. It’s being able to sleep at night. It’s having good relationships. There are so many things that money cannot buy. But I also can’t find a single verse in the Scripture that suggests we are supposed to drag around in the land of Not Enough, not able to afford what we want, living off the leftovers.
God is called El Shaddai, the God of More Than Enough. He takes pleasure in prospering His people. He says we were created to be the head and not the tail. He says He will lavish us with good things. Jesus came that we might live an abundant life. God’s dream for your life is that you would be blessed in such a way that you can be a blessing to others—so prosperous, so generous, and so full of joy that other people want what you have. He wants to use all that you have to advance His kingdom.
A PRAYER FOR TODAY
“Father, thank You that You are El Shaddai, the God of abundance, not the God of barely enough. Thank You that You delight in prospering me, and that I can use my finances as a tool for good. Help me to be generous in blessing others and giving my joy as well. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
