Prospering ForeverThe Bible makes an amazing promise: God wants us to “prosper forever.” God guaranteed this benefit to His people. But they had a role to play....
"Be careful to obey all these things I command you, so that you and your children after you may prosper forever, because you will be doing what is good and right in the sight of the LORD your God." – Deuteronomy 12:28 CSB
The Bible makes an amazing promise: God wants us to “prosper forever.” God guaranteed this benefit to His people. But they had a role to play. The key to fulfillment was obedience. This meant not following the lifestyle of the peoples living in the land, but rather keeping His commands. The amazing thing is that this promise still is true for us today! God still promises to prosper us if we will keep His commands and if we do things His way.
Many people in our modern world reject this attitude. In fact, according to a recent survey, millions of Americans believe that the Bible is just a book of fables! Many people do not take the Bible seriously. But sadly, this means missing God’s abundant blessings!
In your life, think about what influences your decisions. Are you trusting in ideas that seem popular in the world? Or are you living according to God’s principles?
Today, remember that God’s timeless promises still are true for you. He still desires to bless and prosper you. Instead of being dominated by the pop-culture philosophies, fill your mind with His Word. Pray and build a more intimate relationship with Him. Seek to do things His way.
Remember, the Bible’s promise that God desires to bless you abundantly. Cooperate with Him. Serve Him with enthusiasm! Believe Him! Trust Him for true joy, freedom, and prosperity!
PrayerFather, I believe that Your Word is true. Thank You for Your desire to prosper me. Help me to be faithful. In Jesus’ name, amen.
