(It’s Your God-Ordained Right In Christ)
TO THE BIBLE: 2 Corinthians 8:9
“For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.”
2 Corinthians 8:9 is your guarantee of a life of supernatural abundance. I’ve often said that the Christian is not the poor trying to be rich, but the rich discovering his inestimable inheritance in Christ. There’re Christians who don’t believe in prosperity, but what we read in the Scripture above reveals that it’s God’s will for you to prosper. 3 John 1:2 says “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.”
Not only does God want you healthy and strong, He also wants you to prosper financially; it’s your God-ordained right, for you’re Abraham’s seed. The Bible says Abraham was blessed in all things (Genesis 24:1); he was very rich in cattle, in silver, and in gold (Genesis 13:2). In today’s language, it will be right to say he was “super-rich.” As the seed of Abraham, you also have been blessed and enriched in all things unto all bountifulness: “And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise” (Galatians 3:29).
You’re an heir of God, and a joint-heir with Christ; therefore, learn to talk big. Refuse to talk poverty. When you talk big, and things start happening for you, some people— especially the religious folks around you—will grumble and raise eyebrows. Don’t be moved by that. Just keep talking your way to abundance, and keep enjoying your prosperity in God.
It’s your God-ordained right in Christ Jesus, so don’t let anyone deceive you. There’s nothing too good for you, because you’re the King’s kid! Refuse to be broke. Make it a conscious confession as you live in the light of God’s Word daily. Keep talking prosperity; and when you see a fellow brother or sister prospering, be happy and rejoice with him or her, for that’s the life to which we’ve been called as God’s children.
Dear Father, thank you for choosing me for the life of prosperity and abundance. I don’t lack any good thing because I’ve recognised you as my Lord and Shepherd. Thank you Lord, for enriching me in all things for your glory, and for the good of others around me, in Jesus’ Name. Amen!
