Does God Want You to Prosper in Your Finances?

Does God really want you to prosper in your finances? Blog post

I find it amusing when I’m sitting in a room of heart-based entrepreneurs and the topic turns to what the Bible says about making money. Unfortunately, many people (Christians included) do not believe God wants you to prosper in your finances. They believe the myth that He wants us to be poor. 

But I want you to consider that God’s will is for you to prosper in your finances. He makes it abundantly clear right there in His Word.

And you shall remember the Lord your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day. (Deuteronomy 8:18)

The Lord’s blessing makes a person rich, and no trouble is added to it. (Proverbs 10:22 CEB)

Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers. (3 John 2)

Let them shout for joy and be glad, who favor my righteous cause; And let them say continually, “Let the Lord be magnified, who has pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.” (Psalm 35:27)

And my God will liberally supply (fill until full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. (Philippians 4:19 AMP)

I once heard Joyce Meyer say, “It’s okay to have money. Just don’t let money have you.”

What this means is that we have to be good stewards of the money that comes into our possession.

We tithe to our local church.

We sow into the kingdom.

We help those in need.

We live within our means.

And, we save for the future.

We respect what God give us to manage.

Our heavenly Father never intended for us to be driven by money, to lust after money, or to be greedy with what we have.

Like every other resource, money is plentiful in the kingdom of God, and it all belongs to God, anyway. He knows we live in a world where money is necessary for taking care of our needs and living our day to day lives. So why wouldn’t He want us to have it?

The bottom line is that we are blessed to be a blessing to others.

The more money we have, the more we can bless others.

When our finances are in order, and we are debt free, we can devote a bigger percentage of our income to sow into the kingdom of God.

“Seek ye first the kingdom of God and all these other things shall be added unto you.” (Matthew 6:33)

If you keep God first and family and people second, then your priorities will be in the right order. Never put money above God or people.

Never put money above your health and wellbeing.

Money is just a resource.

Don’t make it more than it is.
