“And Abram was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold.” (Emphasis mine)
God desires that we, his beloved children, prosper in all things. He loves to see you enjoying good success, material wealth and health and wholeness! In-fact, he wants you blessed so much that he endured the cross, he became for you prosperity; “For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich.”. Jesus is salvation, Mr. Prosperity, and he gave himself so that you might share IN him! Because of Jesus you can righteously prosper in all circumstances! Because of Jesus you have already received the spiritual gift of prosperity!
God desires that his children believe and rest in the spiritual gift of prosperity and see success manifest and be mirrored in their lives. This is what happened to Abraham. Abraham received a spiritual treasure and promise (Gen. 12:2-3), which was then mirrored and manifested in his tangible, outward life. Abraham manifested many blessings; health, long-life, wealth. In-fact the bible says he was “very rich in cattle, silver, and in gold” (Gen. 13:2). Abraham wasn’t just successful spiritually. No, he received a spiritual promise which made him successful and prosperous in every area of life.
That’s what God desires for our lives! He has even given us the same spiritual empowerment and blessing he gave to Abraham; “If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Galatians 3:29). Friend, you expect good days and prosperity because of what Jesus has provided for you. Put your faith in the spiritual reality and instead of worrying depend on the blessing!
