(Your Prosperity Comes From Your Heart)
👤 Pastor Chris
📖 TO THE BIBLE
Luke 12:15 TLB “Beware! Don’t always be wishing for what you don’t have. For real life and real living are not related to how rich we are.”
◀️ LET’S TALK
When you read the book of Genesis chapter 37, you’ll see how Joseph’s brothers made an evil plot against and sold him into slavery. Joseph found himself as a slave in the house of Potiphar. He could have been whining and crying, bitter about what his brothers did to him. His complaints would have been valid, in a sense, but he wasn’t going to give any excuse for failure. The Bible says, “As it turned out, God was with Joseph and things went very well with him. He ended up living in the home of his Egyptian master” (Genesis 39:2 MSG).
If, while as a slave in the house of Potiphar, Joseph was still prosperous and doing excellently, then it means true prosperity isn’t just about money. Therefore, your prosperity shouldn’t be dependent on how much money you have or don’t have; your prosperity is in your heart. No amount of money could ever be taken from you, enough to make you broke or poor. You’re an heir of God, a joint-heir with Christ; plugged to a supply that never runs dry. When you lend out money to anyone, if they pay you back, praise God; but the moment you give it out, rise above it. You are boundless!
Jesus said in Luke 6:35, “…Love your enemies, do good, and lend, hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil.” He’s getting your attention on something higher: God’s wealth is your wealth. You’re only a conduit—a free-flowing conduit—for passing it to others. Your flow can’t be blocked. So, in your life, with regard to your prosperity, focus on the Lord as your source. Glory to God!

2 Corinthians 8:9 AMPC; 1 Timothy 6:17; Philippians 4:19
All the wealth in this world belongs to me, for I’m an heir of God and a joint-heir with Christ. The silver and gold are mine, including the cattle upon a thousand hills. Therefore, I refuse to be limited by anything in this world. I’m a freeflowing conduit of God’s wealth and blessings to others, and I’m plugged to an unending supply. Glory to God!
