SEND NOW PROSPERITY
We rejoice and we are glad; because this is the day our Lord has made! Christi and I praise God for all the good things He is doing right now in our marriage, family, ministry and our nation! We also look ahead with great expectation to see the desires He has placed in our hearts come to pass! But these divine dreams are BIG. Have you noticed that about God? He will never call you to do something that doesn’t require faith, an absolute trust and dependence on Him alone to fulfill. This God given dream Christi and I have is no different. It will require a BIG increase in ability, opportunities, finances and creative ideas for fulfillment. So this prayer in Psalm 118 is what the Lord recently showed us to pray.
It begins with being thankful. We will never see future dreams come to pass if we are not thankful now for the desires He has already granted. After choosing to rejoice and be thankful, then we see the request made to the Lord. Christi and I have been praying this daily, “This is the day The Lord has made. We rejoice and we are glad in it! We ask you Lord to SEND NOW PROSPERITY and give us GREAT SUCCESS!” This request is not for our own benefit: to own a big house, drive a fancy car and have a big flat screen TV. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with having those things. But God’s purpose for prosperity is so that we can BE A BLESSING. To advance the kingdom of God in the earth and to help more people. When this is your motive, then He can trust you with all of the “things.”
Psalms 112 teaches us that a righteous man is one who honors the Lord by delighting to do His will (more than His own.) Several times it states that a righteous man is a generous giver. Because of the right choices He has made, verse three says, “Prosperity and welfare (wealth and riches) are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.” There are some who think that you have to be poor to be holy or humble. But please notice that this man’s righteousness is intact even with wealth and riches in his house! God wants you BLESSED!
Isaiah 48:17-18 says, “I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you in the way that you should go. Oh, that you had paid attention to My commandments! Then your peace and prosperity would have been like a [flowing] river…” God is ready to teach us His ways so that we may profit in all of our endeavors. But we must look to Him not ourselves: our business savvy, strong work ethic, our popularity, etc. The Lord must be our sole source of supply. He has the plan. But this verse says that Israel decided to go their own way and missed out on peace and prosperity so abundant that it would have flowed like a river! That’s an unending source of constant supply. Praise The Lord that stirs me up! It’s time to pay attention.
Please notice that God’s prosperity always includes His perfect peace! In Strong's Concordance Peace/Shalom means “completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, and harmony, the absence of agitation or discord.” I can tell you from my own experience of making millions in rock and roll that you don’t want prosperity without peace. I was miserable! Without God, the money is devoured by sin and bad choices. Proverbs 10:22 explains, “The blessing of the Lord—it makes [truly] rich, and He adds no sorrow with it [neither does toiling increase it].” Truly rich includes what money can’t buy: peace, health, safety and harmony in your relationships. In addition, God’s way doesn’t require us working more hours. That’s truly rich!
As you sow your precious seed this month, be excited that because of your obedience to give to the work of the kingdom, you are paying attention to His commands. Therefore, The Lord is teaching you to profit. Get ready for creative concepts, witty inventions and uncommon favor with those who are in authority over you! According to Psalms 35:27, it’s time to shout for joy, be glad and “Say continually, ‘Let the Lord be magnified, Who takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servant!”
We Love You,
Mylon & Christi
