prosperity by grace
But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth...
Deuteronomy 8:18

Rhapsody of Realities Daily Devotional For Saturday 10th July 2021

Prosperity has nothing to do with how hard you
fast and pray it’s the Lord’s doing. God is the
One who prospers you. He delights in your prosperity
(Psalm 35:27). You don’t have to wonder whether or
not God wants you to prosper. He doesn’t want you
to put your trust in step-by-step human calculations,
because that won’t work. They may seem to work
for some time, but they won’t last. True and lasting
prosperity comes by grace.
A story is told in Mark 10, of a rich young ruler’s
attitude to wealth. He wanted to know what he must
do to inherit eternal life. Jesus told him to obey all the
commandments but he said, “Master, all these have I
observed from my youth.” The Bible says Jesus looked
at him with love, and said to him, “Go and sell all that
you have, and give it to the poor, and come and follow
me” (Mark 10:21). At that, the rich young ruler went
away sad. He was tied to his possessions, for the Bible
says he had great possessions or as someone rightly
put it: “his great possessions had him.”
Jesus then looked round about and said to His
disciples, “...How hardly shall they that have riches
enter into the kingdom of God!” (Mark 10:23). Jesus
was letting them understand that salvation wasn’t
going to be by their money, or great possessions, but
by the Spirit of God. Jesus wanted the rich young man
to put his trust, not in his wealth, but in God, the giver
of wealth.
Your prosperity isn’t dependent on any man, your
business, the systems and governments of this world,
or the economy, but on God. It’s by His grace. Now
you can understand why He says in 2 Corinthians 9:8:
“And God is able to make all grace abound toward
you that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things,
may abound to every good work.” The power that
God gives His children to get wealth is spiritual power,
not political power or economic power. It’s the power
He gives every Christian to propagate God’s righteous
course. Praise God!


My purpose in life is to establish God’s righteousness in the earth and in the hearts of men around the world. And I’m blessed with all I require to carry this out. Therefore, I’m committed to advancing God’s agenda, favouring His righteous course with my time and resources, for His glory. Amen.
