God Has Pleasure When Christians Prosper
God did not create us and then leave us to ourselves. He is very much interested in what happens to his children, the Abrahamic Seed Group. His interest in us caused Him to promise us healing, prosperity, family well being and salvation in the covenant He made with Abraham. (Gentile Christians are grafted into these Abrahamic blessing promises right along with Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and Israel.) Powerful Scriptures below demonstrate His interest in our prosperity. First, God teaches us, the individual members of The Abrahamic Seed Group, to profit.
We do not have to learn this by ourselves. God teaches us to profit in accordance with his promise to Abraham to prosper the Seed Group. Isa 48:17 Thus saith the LORD, thy Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel; I am the LORD thy God which teacheth thee to profit, which leadeth thee by the way that thou shouldest go. (KJV) Second, God actually has pleasure in the prosperity of his servants. I used to think that prosperity was wrong.
If it is wrong, why does God have pleasure when I am prosperous and why does he actually teach us how to develop wealth. Ps 35:27 27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant. (KJV) Third, God does not reject the prayers of the destitute and poor. No refusal to answer their prayer causes their lack of prosperity. Ps 102:17 He will regard the prayer of the destitute, and not despise their prayer. (KJV) In the above scripture, the word, despise means to reject. In other words, God will not reject the prayers of the destitute. In addition, He will absolutely regard them! Think of it! God hears the prayers of the destitute and needy. Even Job saw these things. He saw that God will not turn his back on the needy.
He will not cast them aside. He will hear their prayer and do something about their problems. In the face of great adversity, Job saw these things. Job 36:15 15 He delivereth the poor in his affliction, and openeth their ears in oppression. (KJV) Job 36:11 11 If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures. (KJV) Even Job saw that they shall be delivered. He saw that if they also obey Him, they shall have much prosperity and pleasure. God’s will is to prosper you. Even Job knew this! Then what is our Prosperity Trigger? What is our Prosperity Activator? Sowing and reaping is our Trigger-Activator for personal prosperity. This is the only way God has ordained for us to become wealthy.
We must learn and obey the Bible principle of giving. Giving, according to the Bible, is the equivalent of a farmer sowing various seeds. What you plant is what comes up in your harvest. Farmers plant corn, cotton and tomato seeds. These same individual things, corn, cotton and tomatoes, come up for them in the time of their harvest. Prov 11:24-26 24 There is that scattereth, and yet increaseth; and there is that withholdeth more than is meet, but it tendeth to poverty. 25 The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered also himself. 26 He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him: but blessing shall be upon the head of him that selleth it. (KJV) To secure a financial harvest, Abraham planted financial wealth. He planted it by tithing.
He planted it by making various offerings. The point is this; Abraham planted or sowed seed from which he needed to glean a harvest of the same kind. He planted corn or financial seed. He reaped a harvest of corn or financial prosperity. Do what Abraham did, dear Christian, and you will amass Abrahamic wealth just like Abraham. Plant financial seeds daily so your harvest will have no off days. Plant your seed. God has pleasure when Christians proper.
