WHAT IS PROSPERITY?

Prosperity is wellness in every area of your life.

Which are the areas of your life?

IN YOUR SPIRIT; SPIRITUAL

SPIRITUAL PROSPERITY:

For you to have spiritual prosperity The Real YOU has to prosper.How does my spirit prosper?

If you are not born again in your spirit; that means, if you have not received Jesus Christ, the Son of God, as the Way that God has made for reconciliation of man with God, then your spirit is dead and separated from God. You are not in the kingdom of His dear Son Jesus.

Jesus Christ is not your Lord and Saviour and you are not saved from your sins. You are not reconciled with God and you are not a child of God.

That means your spirit is not prospering. There is no peace in your inner man. You are all the time looking for and in search of that something to fill that longing in your spirit and heart which only Jesus Christ and getting right with God can bring.

When you are not in the kingdom of Light, you are in the kingdom of darkness and the devil who is the god of this world is lording over you. He is a thief , a killer and a destroyer.

He will do his best to keep you from entering into the kingdom of Light because he knows that only then will you have life eternal and prosperity here on earth when you follow Jesus Christ.

Prosperity in your spirit would mean you have become a new creature in Christ Jesus. You are a child of God and reconciled with Him.

That can happen when you DECIDE to choose Jesus Christ and accept Him as your Saviour and the Lord of your life.

The moment you do that you are filled with great love, joy and peace from Him.

You are born again. Your spirit is born again. It has become a new creature. It has become perfect and you are in the right standing before God.

That is SPIRITUAL PROSPERITY!




SOUL PROSPERITY:

Our Souls are made up of 3 parts.

Our minds, our emotions and feelings, our will or decision making power.

For our Souls to prosper we must be prosperous in all these 3 areas

Mind. Emotions. Will Power.

1. MENTAL PROSPERITY

For our minds to prosper we must have

No Fear, No Guilt, No Unforgiveness, No Stress and No Anxiety.

These are the forces of this world which torment the mind of man.

We will not have these negative forces in our minds if our minds are stayed on the things of God. If I am spiritually minded and not carnally minded.

Where do I find the things of God ? In the Bible, which is the Written word of God. When we are born again and become a child of God, our minds, our thoughts thinking patterns and belief systems remain the same. For us to live in victory they have to change and be renewed like putting in a new program in your mind. You can renew your mind only with the Word of God.

It's the law of displacement working when you fill your mind with the Word of God. The Word of God gets into your mind and eventually into your heart which will displace your old ways of thinking and belief system and renew your mind according to what and how God thinks. This Word given by God to man, is His will for man and His instruction manual for us to live a victorious and a prosperous life, in this wicked world.


NO FEAR:

The Bible says that perfect love casts out fear. God is Love and has loved us with an unending love just the way we are. When we think and meditate on this Word from the Bible it will slowly but surely remove all kinds of fear from our minds and lives !
The Word of God fills us with Faith in God which is the ANTIDOTE of any kind of fear. Fear is just having faith in the negative things happening to you.
It will fill you with God's LOVE!

NO GUILT:

When we receive Jesus Christ as our Saviour and Lord, the Blood of Jesus Christ washes us of all sins and makes us perfect and righteous in the eyes of God. When that happens, God forgives and also Forgets all the wrongs which we ever did in our past.He does not condemn us for anything. There is no condemnation.
That should give us the confidence that we are absolutely clean in the eyes of God. It will remove all kinds of Guilt feelings from our lives and minds which is robbing us of PEACE !

NO UNFORGIVENESS:

We have to forgive ourselves and we have to forgive others.
Forgiveness is a decision. You just decide and choose that you will not do to the other person as he or she has done to you.
Everyone makes mistakes.
You have made mistakes in the past. Forgive yourself.
People are ignorant. Many times they are controlled of their flesh and offend you.
Do not take offences. Forgive them
Do not keep rehearsing in your minds what they did to you.
Do not talk about it with your relatives and friends.
Do not bring it up again and again and keep opening the wound.
It will not heal. Forgive and allow the hurt and the wound to heal.
Do not hold a grudge against anyone. It will eat you up.
Remember Christ died for us while we were still the worst of sinners and He forgave us !
It is difficult but it is POSSIBLE ! This can happen when you think and meditate on the Word of God ! It will fill you with His JOY !

NO STRESS:

When our priorities are wrong and we are doing too many things and things are out of order, it builds up stress.
The causes of stress are:
Wrong Priorities
Poor Time Management
No Focus

RIGHT PRIORITIES:

First put your priorities right.
Write down your values according to the importance they have in your life.
Remember that Putting God first in your life is the only guarantee that you will succeed in life. Doing what He has created you to do.
Then your relationships with family and others.
Your physical wellbeing and personal growth. Your work and business.
Leisure and anything else.

TIME MANAGEMENT:

Give the hours of your day to the tasks you must do, according to your priorities.
Doing the most important thing first. Making sure you do them. That will give satisfaction to your mind and remove any stress related to not doing that important task.
If you have managed your TODAY you have managed your life.
Make your day go in the direction you want your life to go.

FOCUS:

Focus your life on the One Thing that God has called you to do.
That is why it is so important to know the God's Purpose for your life.
That is the only thing which will satisfy you and make you happy. No one else can make you happy.
You will be able to say No to other things when you know your Purpose.
Remove the tasks from your day which you think are not important according to your priorities.Many of us take on too many things and are unable to do anything properly.
We lose our time, energy and resources trying to do too many things.
Focus your life on doing only One Thing.
Become Good at it. Excel in it. Say no to other good things.
When the people wanted to make Jesus king he ran from there, because that was not the purpose He came to earth for.
He became a man to take the sins of the world upon Himself and pay the price which man could not do for himself.
Jesus knew His Purpose !
Doing these three things will remove STRESS from your life !

NO ANXIETY:

Anxiety comes when you start worrying about your future.
What will I eat ? Where will I live ? What will I wear ? Who will look after me in my old age? Where will the money come for me in my old age?
These are legitimate questions but Jesus told us not to take thought about them because our Father in heaven knows that we have need of them.
And He is not an irresponsible Father. He is a Good Good Father. He is a perfect Father! He will carry us even in our old age.
TRUST HIM !
There is no point in worrying. You cannot change anything by worrying.
To Remove Anxiety God tells us to do two things:

First Obey God and fulfill His purposes in your life and you will never lack these things. You will always have enough to take care of all your needs. Everyone who obeys and does what God wants them to do is Blessed and prospers in Life.

Secondly God tells us to Plan, lay up for our children's children. You have to have a plan to lay up. That means Plan your life, for years to come so that you know what you will be doing in the future. Where the money will come from. How will it be used. BUT do not trust your riches and your planning. TRUST GOD !
And this Planning will Remove the ANXIETY from your life !

HavingNO FEAR, NO GUILT, NO UNFORGIVENES, NO STRESS, NO ANXIETYwill make you MENTALLY PROSPEROUS !

To be continued....... for prosperity in the other areas of our lives ! If you would like to know more on this subject and others, please write to us and we can send you some more material
