“And he said, unto me, The LORD, before Whom I walk will send his angel with thee, and prosper thy way: and thou shall take a wife for my son of my kindred, and of my father’s house.” Gen 24:40
I love this verse of the scripture. Abraham was so confidence of his righteous walk with God. He assured his servant that God was going to PROSPER the journey of the servant in getting a wife for Abraham’s son, Isaac based on his walk with God, God’s promises unto him, his willing heart, life of obedience to God, total commitment to sacrifice whatever to please God in righteousness. You can read about Abraham in the Bible.
Year 2016, we are all in a journey. Life itself is a journey not a destination. Our prosperity spiritually, physically, financially, emotionally and so on, will be a function of a walk with our Creator-God. God is more interested in our fulfilment here on earth than we desire for ourselves. But God cannot work without our cooperation because we are free moral agents. God want to make us prosperous…Job 8:6
What does it mean to walk with God?
W -walk in the righteousness of God…1st John 1:6. Walk in obedience. Work with your hands, mind, and brain. Work the talk.
A –Attributes of God through grace…Titus 2:11-12, Attitude is everything. Actions of Faith, Acts of the Apostles. If God does not Act in the life of a person in one hour, that person is a dead man. We have got to be small gods acting, full of creativity like our Big Father, God in Heaven
L –Loyalty to only one true God…Gen 22:11-18, Love in Action John 3:16. Loving God, loving people, loving yourself and loving the legitimate things you do with strong burning desire and commitment to the principles, God is sure to elevate and prosper your journey this year and for the rest of our lives.
K –Knowledge. Hosea 4:6 God’s people are destroyed for lack of knowledge and application of knowledge. Treasures are hidden in books, read them and apply the knowledge. If is only one book you will read and implement the things learnt, read that one book this year. Information creates revelations and revelations creates transformation
“Righteousness exalteth a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people.” Proverbs 14:34. Year 2016 is a leap year. God want us to jump, elevate, prosper and multiply in every aspect of life. It is God’s impacted righteousness in us that will make that possible. The good works, self-righteousness, giving of alms, and so on will not atone for our sins without accepting Jesus into your life.
“But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His Righteousness and all these things shall be added unto you.” Matthew 6:33
I am convinced like Abraham that walking with God leads to prosperity.
I am convinced like David that we have to apply principles and skills Psalm 78:72
I am convinced like Esther that we must take risks in life Esther 4:16
I am convinced like Ruth that we MUST follow one course until successful…FOCUS Ruth 1:16-18
I am convinced like Job that no matter the challenges of life, economy hardship, I must not compromise my stand and do shady business Job 27:6
I am convinced like Mark Anthony Stevens who says; “Disciplined life doesn’t mean doing everything right all the time. Success is about doing the right thing, not about doing everything right.” His point is, don’t try to be a perfectionist with everything you do because we are humans and so we are bound to make mistakes. Create habits to live right not the discipline to live right. Make living right a lifestyle. This is biblical in Luke 1:74-75
I am convinced like my Saviour and Lord Jesus Christ who says; “I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work.” John 9:4… We all must value time. We must be diligent with time. A man that is diligent in his work, will stand before kings and not ordinary men. It is the fervent earnest prayers of a righteous man that gets answered.
These words are eternal truth and I trust you will find wisdom in them as you apply the lessons you have learnt. God’s way will prosper and elevate you.
I am available to show and teach you how to have a personal encounter with Jesus and enjoy the life of heaven on earth.
Righteousness is not gotten by struggle. It is made possible through submission and surrender to Christ righteousness.
Expect and Enjoy Transformation
Prayer Point: God please, don’t let me go where your grace can’t sustain me this year in Jesus name. Amen
