Power to Prosper

TODAY’S WORD from Joel and Victoria Osteen

“And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth…”
(Deuteronomy 8:18, NKJV)

God wants to do something great in and through you. He has blessings in your future that you haven’t even thought of yet!

The Scripture tells us that He gives us the power to gain wealth. Wealth is simply having abundance. He wants you to live in abundance so that He can use you to be a blessing to others.

When we do things God’s way, we get God’s results.

In other words, when we live in excellence and integrity, when we follow the Word of God, we will walk in His blessing.

Notice one more thing about this verse. It says that “He gives us the power to get wealth.” See, God gives us the ability. He gives us creative ideas and inventions, but we have to be diligent to do our part and step out and use what He’s given us. We have to sow good seed in order to see the harvest that He has promised. Today, choose to be faithful. Choose to be diligent. Choose to follow God in everything and watch Him pour out His abundant blessing on you!

Father, thank You for giving me the power to live in abundance. I choose to be faithful to You and Your Word. I choose to diligently follow Your commands and look for Your hand of blessing on everything I set my hands to in Jesus’ name. Amen.

 

 

One thought on “Power to Prosper

  1. good…except that we must be very careful not to fall into the trap of following God, being obedient to him, with the idea that we will prosper in the end…of course, heaven holds more riches than we can begin to imagine…..but I don’t want to look at God as a sort of genie in the bottle you know?
