Prosperity @ a Glance (Pt2)

by Joseph AKINOLA
THE WORD OF GOD - Joshua 1:8

Prosperity is the will of God for believers but it has its price. It is the will of God for you as a believer to prosper but taking considerations the will of the believer himself, it is not his will but his wish. Will goes with discipline, diligence and dedication, while wish deals with aspiration without any commitment. Anybody can aspire and desire but to really achieve the aspired and desired, there is need to be goal oriented and commitment-bound.

To prosper means to be successful in all spheres (ramifications) of life. It means to flourish and thrive in anything one does. The same is what God wants for you and I as a believer.

Among the keys the opens/unlocks the door of Prosperity is the Word of God. The Word of God is powerful that it can produce for you anything you can ever desire in the Kingdom provided you are ready to pay its price.

Joshua 1:8 instructs that, “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night…”

The instruction, “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth” literally means that the book of the law (your own Bible) must be your Daily Reading. Reading it daily makes it unfolds itself to you and also makes you enjoy all the benefits attached such as:

Daily Divine Health
Daily Business Ideas
Daily Marriage Instructions/Tonics
Daily Divine Wealth Creation Ideas
Daily Divine Financial Tips, Name it.

All the benefits you get comes as a result of how often you operate/open/access the Book.

The Word of God is meant to PROSPER you.

The Word of God is the voice of God. God’s Word is the first level of hearing His voice. If you can hear Him through His written voice, you will soon graduate into hearing His audible voice. If you cannot hear His voice in His Word, you can’t hear His voice in your ears and in your heart, thus, you will continually lack directions.

When the Book is closed, destiny is closed. Open the Book and you open up your destiny into the Supernatural realm where you become a producer of proofs to the Natural world/realm.

Every bit of the Word of God you consume/feed on trains you, builds both your immune and mental system, nourishes your spirit-man, soul and brain (in thinking – creativity wise), your heart (in meditation) and your body (health wise).

The quality of the Word of God you carry or possess (in your possession) determines how much you can possess (achieve/acquire) in life as a believer.

It is through the Word everything you are and that you see around came into being and how much you want to prosper both financially, materially, mentally, martially, professionally, career-wise, etc will be traceable to and achieved by how much of the Word you open yourself up to and make yourself available to. In this part of the world, we do claim that there isn’t time for studying the Word, but we give time to/for our hobby, business, games and exercises in order to be healthy meanwhile, sound and lasting health abounds in the word Proverbs 4:20-22.

What To Do With The Word Of God

1. Labor in the Word 1Timothy 5:17
Laboring in the Word has do with ‘working hard’, ‘putting all your effort’, ‘keeping at it’ – the word of God – making sure that every part of it is Learnt, Practiced and Taught to others.

How To Labor In The Word 2Timothy 2:15

The Word of God you never labor in can never produce anything for you.
  • By Studying The Word -> Studying the word of God gives you deep insight into the deep things which God has in stock for you. It deepens your root in the knowledge of the Word of God and this causes you to be certified /approved against shame, mediocrity and all manner of unpalatable circumstances.

  • By Meditating On The Word -> Meditating on the Word of God gives you a firm hold/grip on what it says and the power in the portion you meditate on carries. 2 Tim. 2:15 says, “A workman that needeth not to be ashamed” – Meditation makes to stand out of your peers & colleagues. It gives you a class of your own, this is the key that makes you not to be ashamed and displaced during the trials of life. A man that will never be ashamed is a man, who meditates always, because Meditators are winners, they are creative beings. They tap into the Supernatural realm for resources to fix the Natural.

  • By Rightly Dividing The Word Of God -> Rightly dividing the word means teaching the depth of truth you have learnt to other believers and being a witness to your world (Matt. 28:19, Matt. 6:33).

Because the Bible says in Proverbs 14:23, “In all labour there is profit…”, each time you labour in the Word of God, you get for yourself a reward for it. Among the things/benefits you get is life and profit in all areas of your life (Prov.13:11; John 6:27; Prov. 14:23).
