The God Of Prosperity
Haggai 2.8 "‘The silver is Mine, and the gold is Mine,’ says the Lord of hosts."
When people want contracts, they do their best to befriend the person who has power to award the contracts. Brothers and sisters, if you want to prosper, the One to chase is the One with the power to prosper you. When you have God, you have everything else. Hallelujah! Matthew 6.33 says, "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you."
You know, when Satan tempted Jesus, he took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.” Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’” Here's the point: worship and service unlocks the doors of prosperity!
People miss it, they worship gold and money; they spend their lifetimes chasing prosperity instead of chasing the God of prosperity! Job.22.25-26 says, "And let God All-Powerful be your gold. Let him be your pile of silver. Then you will enjoy God All-Powerful, and you will look up to him." When God becomes more important than gold to you, when you have God and are truly satisfied, when you esteem God to be more valuable than all the gold and silver in this world, that's when you will begin to enjoy the true riches that come from God alone. You will prosper in Jesus name!
