Heirs Of Prosperity – Pastor Chris
Friday, August 4, 2017
And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise (Galatians 3:29).
If as a Christian you’ve been praying, “O God, prosper me,” then you’ve been praying amiss, because our prosperity, as far as God is concerned, is a settled fact. In Christ Jesus, we’re heirs of prosperity. It’s like praying that God should make you a human being. That’s not going to work! In the same way that the righteousness of God was imparted to your spirit when you were born again, prosperity and greatness have been imparted to your spirit.
2 Corinthians 8:9 says, “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.” What does this mean? First, understand that Jesus never became poor spiritually. So, the scripture above is talking about physical, material, and financial blessings. Jesus became poor for your sake, so that from what He gave up, you might inherit abundance.
Think about this: God laid our sins on Jesus on the cross, and conferred His righteousness on us at His resurrection. In Christ, you’re born His heir. All of God’s wealth and resources belong to you because you’re His heir. The Bible says the silver, gold, precious stones and the whole world belong to Him: “The silver is mine, and the gold is mine, saith the Lord of hosts” (Haggai 2:8). “For every beast of the forest is mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills. I know all the fowls of the mountains: and the wild beasts of the field are mine…for the world is mine, and the fulness thereof” (Psalm 50:10-12).
So, as an heir of God, and joint heir with Christ, the silver, the gold, the cattle upon a thousand hills, the world and the fullness thereof, belong to you as much as they belong to Him. No wonder the Bible says, “all things are yours” (1 Corinthians 3:21). See yourself in this light, for this is the truth about your prosperity.
Don’t see your job or business as your source of income, but as a medium to bless others. Reject poverty, sickness, and everything that’s inconsistent with the realities of the God-life, and live a joyful, prosperous life every day.
Dear Father, I thank you for this great inheritance, which you’ve bequeathed to me in Christ. I’ll never be broke in my life; I walk in abundance, health and success all my days, because that’s your desire for me. Thank you for this great honour, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
