Has anyone ever told you that if you are religious that you cannot be rich? Well they are full of shit and probably not prosperous either. Yes, we swear here sometimes. Why? Because sometimes, it gets the message across in the best way. Don’t be held back by what someone else says to you about your beliefs. After all, it is to God that we answer. And in case you had any doubt if God wants you to be prosperous – read this,
Psa 35:27 Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
— Psalms 35:27
God takes pleasure in the prosperity of his servants. It glorifies Him!!! And with the increased resources, you are expected, and should do, a lot more good works to help the people around you and spread the good news of the Gospel. There are no limits to what you can achieve through God. You can open a successful business, have a beautiful home, a family, travel, and help lots of people along your journey through life. As you are unrelenting in your praise for God and your gratitude to Him for the life you have and your accomplishments, your good works actually glorify the goodness of your Heavenly Father.
So get out there, work hard, push aside the people who tell you that you can’t be wealthy or successful because you are being held back for your beliefs. They are dead wrong. You on the other hand, are rightly alive in Him.
