Then he answered and spake unto me saying. This is the word of the Lord unto Zerubabel, saying not by might or by power, but my spirit saith the Lord of hosts.”
A man’s strength can never lift him. It is God that lifts a man. We live in a world where people are striving, struggling to make ends meet. Some work so hard with nothing to show for their hard work; some even involve themselves in ungodly practices in order to make it. But a child of God ought not go through as much to be lifted.. None can amount to anything in until God lifts him. The prosperity of the church is not by who they know but by the spirit of the grace of God upon the church.
Prosperity is divine; it has been set forth in motion by God; it is ordained of God. It is supernatural. It is in operation in the life of every child of God. Financial prosperity is not the only form of prosperity that God wills for us. He wants us to enjoy solid loving relationships, He wants our children to prosper and He wants us to be healthy(3 John1:2 ) If things are going well on your job, you’re prosperous. If your ideas and ventures are materializing, then you are prosperous. You can prosper in everything that you do, touch and speak.
There is a spiritual prosperity that God wishes to manifest in our lives. He wants us to be enriched bountifully with the wisdom of God. His wish is that we are filled with the knowledge of His will. He wants us to have wisdom and spiritual understanding (Colossians 1:9-10). When you are facing a dilemma that requires a wise decision, you do not need prosperity in the form of money, you need wisdom from God. You need a Word of knowledge. As we strive to reach a point where we are increasing materially, we need to strive to increase in the knowledge of God. If we are filled with the knowledge of His will, then we know that He wants us to prosper in whatsoever we undertake.
All the riches in the world belong to God. Your job can determine your salary, but it has no determination on your income. God will add to your salary and prosper you in ways that you never imagined. You may look to your boss for your salary, but you must look to God for your income. You may be making minimum wage but God will bless you on all avenues, coming in and going out. Your income from God will far exceed your salary.
Where do you stand therefore, to enjoy prosperity by the spirit of God? First, you must make up your mind to promote Jesus and His kingdom. Jesus said, “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me” (John 12:32) your motives, your priorities and your relationship must be right with God in order to enjoy divine prosperity. God is granting you divine lifting today and no power can bring you down in Jesus name.
- Father I thank you for the superior power bestowed upon me to lift me above all forms of opposition in Jesus name.
2. I pull down every barrier standing against the lifting of the name of Jesus in my life in Jesus name.
