The Prosperity of God's Word
Many approach their relationship with God as an afterthought to a busy, stressful life.
They feel they must make do, multitask and hope for the best. Perhaps, at the end of the day, they might ask God to bless them or console them.
Did you know that everything you need for abundant, victorious living is available to you?
“So shall my word be….it is as rain that waters the earth and makes it bring forth and bud….it gives seed to the sower…it shall not return to Me void, but shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it.” —Isaiah 55:10-11 (adapted)
Everything you need is packaged in God’s Word.
His Word is seed that contains His nature and purposes. It is designed for increase and abundance. Peace, joy, faith, love, health, victory and prosperity are all alive in God’s Word. But it is seed that must be sown.
When a seed is placed in the right environment (good soil), it will produce according to its nature. When God’s Word is sown into our hearts and into our environments, it will also produce according to its nature. It shall accomplish its purpose.
His Word is also like the rain. In that sense, His Word (rain) waters His Word (seed). The more we release God’s Word into every situation of life, we are sowing and watering at the same time. We should expect a blessed harvest!
Seeds of fear, doubt, unbelief, bitterness and offense will also produce according to their nature. Your heart determines the nature of the seed you sow (Mt. 12:34-35). Let God’s Word work in your life. Separate yourself from anything that contradicts God’s Word. Soak in it. Proclaim it. Give it room to prosper.
“My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your eyes; Keep them in the midst of your heart; For they are life to those who find them, And health to all their flesh.” —Proverbs 4:20-22
