God Wants Us to Prosper
by Olga Hermans
God wants you to prosper; do you believe that? I am telling you; you better make your choice to believe that with everything that is within you. If you are determined to make better choices this coming year; this should be one of them.
We are called to thrive and not just survive; you and I are called to flourish and not fail. The Bible makes it very clear to us that we are not subject to the times; we are separated unto God from these times, that we are living in right now.
It doesn’t matter what is going on around us economically or that the stock market is going up or down. We are to be unaffected by the times. We are not subjected to the times we are living in; that means that the economic system cannot rule over us. We are not to live under the dominion, the rule, the control or the influence of whatever way the economy and the world system is going at the moment.
You might be asking now; how is that possible? How can we do that? Well, we as Christians, we live in the spirit and everything is subject to that, because we are subject to the Spirit of God. It’s the same with healing. When you find out that healing belongs to you; you actually are saying that you are not subject to sickness. It’s the same with prosperity; we are not subject to recession or depression that is going on. We are blessed and we walk in the blessing.
We are subject to and governed by another economy; the Kingdom of God Economy, we live in a different Kingdom.
Psalm 27:1-5 Verse 5 especially here: “For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me up upon a rock”. We are separated from the curse and separated to the blessing. In the time of troubles; He hides us; He hides us in His pavilion.
Psalm 32:6-7 tells us also that we are not subject to the times; the economy and the direction of the economy. We are subject to the Kingdom of God.
Psalm 31:14-16 Verse 15 says: “My times are in Your hand”; so, our times are in His hands. I want you to see this that “our times are in His hands”. We are in Him, in Him we live, thus we are separated. We are redeemed from the curse of the law; the curse of poverty. We are IN Him; we are NOT in poverty.
It is the will of God for that we thrive and not just survive. Surviving means that we barely get by. That is not you and me; we are thriving, we are flourishing, we are succeeding, we are advancing, we are prospering. Let’s look at the prayer that Jesus prayed that separated us form the evil in the world. John 17:13-14 tells us clearly that we are NOT of the world. We are IN it, but we not OF it. We are separated from the affects of the world.
John 17:15 is very important for us. We are kept from the evil of poverty. Poverty is an evil thing, it is of the curse. We are kept from the evil of lack and from the evil of poverty. We are kept form the evil of shortage and of not enough; that is an evil thing. It is an evil thing not to being able to pay your bills. It is an evil thing when the creditors are calling; that’s evil!
Matt. 6:13, Gal 1:4, 1John 5:18, poverty is a wicked thing! Lack is a wicked thing; it says that wicked one touches him not! 1s made a way of Cor. 10:13 God has made a way of escape for you to escape the curse of the law and to walk in fullness of the blessing of Abraham.
Let’s go back to John 17:16-17 “Sanctify”, that is a great word. It means to be set apart, to be cut away from. You and I are separated by the truth; we are in another Kingdom. There was light in the land of Goshen. When the hail was coming down on the Egyptians; the children of Israel were separated by the wall of redemption. There was a line. And the devil with everything that he had was not able to cross that line. There was a division.
John 17:17 Jesus prayed for you and me to be sanctified, to be separated from the world’s system. We are separated form the world’s system and we are separated from the affects of the world’s economy. We live in a different economy. It is time to get out of debt and to owe nobody anything. You are not subject to the times. When you are in Christ; you are not under the dominion and the subjection to the curse of the law.
You have to go and read this prophesy; for the Christians “everything is going to be ALL-right, but for the world it is getting worse”. So you have to choose which side you are going to be on. It is a serious time that we are in. But, we are not subject to the times; our times are in His hands.
So, if you are reading this and you have never given your heart to the Lord. This is a perfect time to do that. Do not procrastinate or postpone it. Right now you can make that choice; it’s the best choice you will ever make.
Jesus is still waiting for you to make a choice ….. So pray right here: “God in Heaven, I come to You in the name of Your Son, Jesus. I confess that I haven’t lived my life for You. I believe that Jesus is the Son of God. I believe that He died on the cross and rose again from the dead so I might have a better life now and eternal life in heaven. Jesus, come into my heart and be my Lord and Savior. From this day forward, I’ll live my life for You to the best of my ability. In Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen.”
The Power of Choice is in our hands; think about that! When we engage our will and be determined to make Godly choices in our life; we live in the blessing. Our life is truly choice driven.
Talk to you soon again!
