There is a ton of wrong teaching out there concerning biblical prosperity and a lot of abuse in the Body of Christ because of it. One thing is sure though; you can’t go wrong saying what God says about you in His Word.
God has a principle of faith that He operates by, and he wants us to be immitators of Him in our faith. The principle is “calling things that are NOT, as though they ARE.”
Romans 4:17 ~ (As it is written, I have made thee a father of many nations,) before him whom he believed, even God, who quickeneth the dead, and calleth those things which be not as though they were.
Don’t confuse facts with Truth. The fact that you may be broke or barely getting by does not change the Truth that God has provided material and financial blessing for you. Stay with God, say what He says about you and He will show you true prosperity.
This is NOT a formula to make you rich, or to get God to bless you. God has already prepared and provided every earthly and spiritual blessing. The purpose of confessing God’s word is to build your faith to recieve what has ALREADY been provided. If you are not seeing the level of blessing, healing, peace or favor that you should be,(all of which is prosperity) don’t water down the Word of God to match your lack of experience. Speaking the Word of God will elevate your faith so that your experience will match the Word. Seeking the “thing” is a dead end street, but seek GOD first and these things will be added to you.
Matthew 6:32-34 ~ 32(For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. 34Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.
