To PROSPER actually means to be productive, to be fruitful. One is not prospering who is not fruitful or productive.
1. God is involved in only good work; He doesn’t get involved in any bad work.
2. 2 Thess 2:16-17
“Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God, even our Father, which hath loved us, and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts, and stablish you in every good word and work”
3. God not only wants you involved in good work; He wants you to be ready or “prepared” for it.
In Titus 3:1, He tells the people to respond to the leaders and be ready to every good work
“Put them in mind to be subject to principalities and powers, to obey magistrates, to BE READY TO EVERY GOOD WORK”
By the time they call you for an interview, you are ready for it. God didn’t say “PRAY” for every good work. No! He said be “READY” to every good work.
4. That means TRAIN for it. Train to be the best.
When you are trained for the best and you are the best at what you do, then you’ll have confidence in the ability God has given you.
Someone who is good at whatever he does, can’t easily get fired or replaced; if you do, you know you’ll be the one at loss. So be the best because God has planned for you to be the best!
5. God wants you to apply yourself to good deeds, be honest and excel in whatever you do in life.
“And let our own people really learn toapply themselves to good deeds, to honest labor and honorable employment, so they may be able to make necessary demands whatever the occasion may require and not be living idle, uncultivated and unfruitful lives.”(Titus 3:14 Amplified)
Firstly, you have to be found doing something (honest and honorable). For example, in the case of a job, if no one wants to employ you; then make a job for yourself! Don’t be limited by anything; DREAM AND DREAM BIG!
For those intending to start their own business, don’t say what I need is capital. You are the capital! That’s what you need!
Some people say, if I can only get the money; if I can only get someone to back me up, then I ‘ll start. What about God? He’s bigger than all the people you can ever get. Never limit yourself for you are big!
GOD IS ABLE TO MAKE ALL GRACE ABOUND TOWARDS YOU
Don’t say oh I wish so and so will help me. Stop it! God Himself is able to make all grace, every favor come to you in abundance!
Don’t look to men; look to God!
“And God is able to make all grace [every favor and earthly blessing]come in abundance to you, so that you may always [under all circumstances, regardless of the need]have complete sufficiency in everything [being completely self-sufficient in Him], and have an abundance for every good work and act of charity.” (2 Corinthians 9:8 Amplified)
When God’s Word gets into your system, when it gets into you, it carries you, it pilots you, it moves you, it takes you. The Word of God does not only inspire you, the Word makes you and your future!
6. He causes good people to remember you
He causes good things to come to you
Don’t repel the power of God by talking negatively. God is a faith God.
Say this out loud
The Word of God is working in me now
I am fruitful, I am productive in everything that I do
I’m walking in the blessing
I am a child of God; a child of glory walking in the blessing
Take some time and sit down and meditate on how favored you are as a child of God.
Don’t say “I’m lucky.” No! Don’t talk like that. A child of God does not walk in luck. There is no luck in the Bible. You are either BLESSED or you are CURSED.
I’m BLESSED! Hallelujah!
Wherever you find yourself right now whether you are in job or business or a student or whatever you are involved in as a Christian, the principle is the same;BE THE BEST.And how can you be the best?Be ready for it; in other words,“PREPARE” for it. Don’t just go around with only the knowledge you have now. No! Rather:
1. Study fresh
2. Have new ideas; be great with ideas that work
3. Be over and above others; go the extra mile
4. Learn some new skills; get better inside
5. Have the possibility consciousness because God is in you.
Remember, if it is good for people and good for God; it’s from Heaven; go ahead and do it! Don’t say it is impossible for with God ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE!!!
