Biblical Prosperity is about much more than just money. As a matter of fact, money is only one component of Prosperity in a bibilical sense. I was recently reading a book written by Kenneth Copeland entitled The Laws of Prosperity.
The first chapter starts with a discussion about God's intention for His people to prosper spiritually, mentally, as well as physically. It's important to understand God's perspective about Biblical Prosperity in order to increase your faith to be able to receive it. Here is a brief excerpt from the book.
3 John 2- Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health,
just as your soul prospers.
"When John said we should prosper and be in health, he added the phrase, "even as your soul prospers". Man is a spirit; he has a soul consisting of the mind, the will and the emotions; and he lives in a body. Thus, there is a spiritual prosperity; there is a mental prosperity; and there is physical prosperity.
To prosper spiritually, you must be born again. When you accept Jesus as your Savior and make Him the Lord of your life, your spirit is reborn and brought into fellowship with the Father, the Almighty God. This then puts you in a position to receive from Him all the things promised in His Word.
To prosper in your soul, you must be able to control your mind, your will and your emotions. Just because you have accumulated large amounts of knowledge does not mean that your mind is prosperous. Prosperity of the mind comes when you use the knowledge that has been accumulated- when you are controlling your mind instead of your mind controlling you.
Second Corinthians 10:5 says...
"Casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into
captivity to the obedience of Christ"
The person who does this has control of his mind and is in position to prosper mentally. You cannot control your mind completely without the Word of God being alive and operating inside you.
When a man's soul is prosperous, his will is in line with God's will. How can you get in line with God's will? You can't until you know what His Word says. His Word and His will are the same!An honest man can't will one thing and say another. If you are in line with the Word of God, you are in line with the will of God."
This makes it clear that we have to learn to control our emotions in order to prosper mentally. However, Biblical Prosperity also includes physical prosperity. The world's definition of physical prosperity is money, financial, political and social favor and power. However, it is devoid of any reference to spiritual prosperity or healing as is included in Biblical Prosperity.
Since the world has no concept of spiritual prosperity, their definition of Prosperity is limited to simply using your mind to gain financial or political power. But what good is such power or influence if you are devoid of spiritual prosperity?
In other words, what does it profit a man if he should gain the whole world and lose his soul? And even if you had emotional prosperity and the world's kind of physical prosperity, then died and went to hell, what benefit is there?
Unlike the world's prosperity, God's will for His people is to enjoy Biblical Prosperity, including ALL that comes with being a son of God. This includes prosperity in your mind, body and spirit. The key is to walk in the light of God's Word to become prosperous in every area of your life.Study to find out what His Word says about every area of your life and then act on it to receive Biblical Prosperity in life.
