PRECEPTS FOR PROSPERITY

BIBLE TEXT: JOB 36:5-11

MEMORY VERSE: “If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures” (JOB 36:11).

Man has always craved for advancement and progress. In his pursuit of a better life, the wicked often stray into dubious and forbidden territories. In their quest for instant wealth, modern-day youths despise God’s laws and commandments by dabbling into examination malpractices, certificate forgery, occultism, drug peddling, human trafficking, cybercrimes and other forms of social vices. Though the wicked might get rich and increase in goods, yet, according to the Scriptures, they will not last. Calamity will soon befall them.

God’s precept for prosperity is clearly spelled out in the Bible. The prosperity of saints is of God. It is balanced and grounded in the Scriptures. The prosperity of the saint is based on obedience to the word or counsel of the Lord. It is anchored to godly principles and practices.

As believers distance themselves from the wicked and their lifestyle, they are promised divine supply, answers to prayers, earthly heritage, abundance, divine guidance, support, preservation, security, protection and deliverance. This is balanced prosperity. When saints prosper, they must remain faithful to God and be considerate of others. And they must pass both their faith and wealth to their children.

QUOTE: The prosperity of saints is of God.

CHALLENGE: The prosperity of saints is anchored to godliness.

PRAYER: Lord, don’t allow me to envy the prosperity of the wicked.
