What is Prosperity?

3 John 1:2
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health even as thy soul prospereth.

Genesis 39:2,3
The Lord was with Joseph and he prospered, and he lived in the house of his Egyptian master. 3 When his master saw that the Lord was with him and that the Lord gave him success in everything he did…

What is prosperity? Webster’s defines it as: the condition of being successful or thriving especially economic well-being. I venture forward to say that it isn’t just a financial thing. Look at the verse from 3 John–it mentions your soul and health prospering as well. And the key to these things is walking in God’s righteousness and being obedient.

Look at Psalm 1:3– He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers. And Job 36:11–If they obey and serve him, they will be blessed with prosperity throughout their lives. All their years will be pleasant.

God will bless and prosper you if you obey Him! So in order to have prosperity you must be obedient…think about it… Whether it means standing still or stepping out on faith, prosperity is sure to follow–totally!

Look at this verse: Psalm 84:11 states “For the Lord God is our sun and our shield. He gives us grace and glory. The Lord will withhold no good thing from those who do what is right.” So if we do what He wants us to do, we can live great and go on to do great things!!

Much love and affection,



“The joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10
