“For ever, O LORD, thy word is settled in heaven.” Psa 119: 89
Good news! Yes good news. The good news is that your prosperity is sure in God and it is forever settled in heaven. Every word of God is forever settled, even His word concerning your prosperity. Friend, in God’s agenda your case concerning prosperity is a settled one. A finished and settled case. You are not that man or woman trying to become prosperous or trying to obtain riches. Before God you are a prosperous person. God has already blessed you and you have obtained an inheritance of a prosperous life!
“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ:”Eph. 1:3
“In whom also we have obtained an inheritance, being predestinated according to the purpose of him who worketh all things after the counsel of his own will:”Eph. 1:11
For you the issue of prosperity is a settled one. He has blessed us, not that He is going to bless us. It is a concluded issue with God. He has blessed us already and that includes you. You have been blessed. You have obtained an inheritance (past tense). Friend, there is nothing you desire that God has not blessed you with.
“Who hath blessed us with ALL spiritual blessings.””We have obtained an inheritance.”
It is time to rise up and make God’s word and blessing real in your life. That you are a prosperous, rich and wealthy person is a spiritual reality, making it a reality in the material world is your responsibility.
“According as his divine power hath given unto us ALL things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:”2Pet. 1:4
All we would ever need to live a beautiful, glorious and comfortable life has been given to us by God. They are there, settled forever in heaven.
HOW TO MAKE YOUR INHERITANCE OF PROSPERITY PHYSICAL
One thing you must also know about our God whose word is forever settled in heaven is that He is also the God of the covenant. He is the covenant keeping God. He works and does things for people on the platform of the covenant. The power or the ability to get wealth in the material world is given on the basis of the covenant. Your prosperity is settled in heaven, it is a spiritual blessing that must be made physical. But to make it physical, God must empower you to do so. The power to make your prosperity, which is a spiritual reality physical, is contacted on the platform of the covenant.
“But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.”Deut 8:18
His covenant which He swore to your fathers is what He wants to establish in your life. And this is the reason He will be giving the power to get wealth. There is the power to get wealth! Wealth answers to this power. The power to make money and create wealth is essentially given by God because there is a covenant He wants to establish. Listen, it is on the basis of the covenant that He does this. This power is what you must connect with to be able to translate your spiritual blessing into its material equivalent. The word power connotes ability, this is the ability to create wealth and become a commander in the realms of prosperity. This special ability is realized when you come on the platform of covenant practices.
What is a covenant-? It is a legal binding agreement between two or more parties with attendant conditionality. God works on the basis of the covenant. The covenant which He swore to the fathers is what He wants to establish. The covenant is a sure foundation The covenant is so powerful that it has eternally committed God to your prosperity. It is one thing God cannot break. And that is to show you that if God cannot break the covenant of prosperity, no economic situation can do it. Global meltdown is no match. The covenant is your sure access to wealth and riches because no force in hell can handle the covenant. It goes to show that your prosperity is sure.
“And the word of the LORD came unto Jeremiah, saying, Thus saith the LORD; If ye can break my covenant of the day, and my covenant of the night, and that there should not be day and night in their season; Then may also my covenant be broken with David my servant, that he should not have a son to reign upon his throne; and with the Levites the priests, my ministers”. Jer 33:19-21
This is what this scripture is saying; as long as you see the day ad night inter-changing position, His covenant is in force. This is one major characteristic of the covenant that makes it reliable and tick. As long as the day and night are inter-changing position you can go to sleep resting on the integrity and the efficacy of the covenant.
“My covenant will I not break, nor alter the thing that is gone out of my lips Once have I sworn by my holiness that I will not lie unto David”. Psa 89 34-35
When God swears a covenant His holiness backs it. To break it is to put His holiness to question. How do I walk in the covenant? The covenant is essentially practiced. You don’t pray it to deliver its value; you practice it to enjoy its benefits.
“Keep therefore the words of this covenant, and do them, that ye may prosper in all that ye do.”Due 29:9
It is living by the terms and dictates of the covenant that positions you to reap its benefits. You do the covenant to profit by it.
“And it shall come to pass, if thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to observe and to do all his commandments which I command thee this day, that the LORD thy God will set thee on high above all nations of the earth:”Deu 28:1
The word”IF”shows that these blessings are conditional. They are not automatic. When you fulfill these conditions then the benefits become yours. Friend, it takes the covenant to be truly blessed in the kingdom.
He told Abraham “Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” Gen 12:1-3
It was not automatic; “I will bless thee…and thou shall be a blessing.”The condition…and thou shall be a blessing. It was Abraham’s willingness and readiness to be a blessing that qualified him for what God had in stock for him. Look around God’s promises you will see the conditions attached. Fulfilling these, is what makes the blessing sure. This is your ultimate qualification. Friend, there is no free launch any where. Even salvation that looks free, Jesus paid for it.
“And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless thy bread, and thy water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. There shall nothing cast their young, nor be barren, in thy land: the number of thy days I will fulfill.” Exo 23:25-26
Reading through these scriptures you will discover that they carry some terms for the fulfillment of the promises. It is fulfilling these conditions that make the promises sure. The promise of prosperity becomes sure when we begin to fulfill the conditions attached to it.
The condition states: And ye shall serve the Lord your God. The benefit states-and He shall bless your… It is a covenant, an agreement, a contract. The Bible tells us that it is the blessing of God that makes rich. Now the Bible is saying that this blessing that makes rich can be secured on the platform of the covenant of service.
“And YE SHALL SERVE the LORD your God, and HE SHALL BLESS thy bread, and thy water. . .”Exo23:25
There is a condition attached to securing His blessing, it is not automatic. And we need this blessing to be rich.
For the Bible says, “The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it”. Pro 10:22
Friend, it is time to come online with the covenant of service; Service to God and humanity. This is what will truly make your prosperity sure and bring the settled word of God to physical manifestation in your life.
“When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?
When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal”. Mat 25:31-46
A place of prosperity has been prepared for you from the foundation of the world but it takes service to access it.
“Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:”Mat 25:34
Accessing it is conditional. Meeting the conditions is what makes your place of prosperity sure.
“If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures”. Job 36:11
Kingdom service – service to God and humanity is the condition that must be met. It secures God’s blessing and it is His blessing that makes for riches. I pray that the God of wealth and riches will grant you grace for service as you choose to walk in the covenant. As we fulfill our part of the agreement, God will be committed to fulfilling His part. He is faithful He cannot deny Himself.
