Christ Centered Prosperity (Part 2)

Keeping God #1 in Your Business (PR_Vol_88)

(Deuteronomy 6:8-12) & (Joshua 24:11-14) NLT
11) “When you crossed the Jordan River and came to Jericho, the men of Jericho fought against you, as did the Amorites, the Perizzites, the Canaanites, the Hittites, the Girgashites, the Hivites, and the Jebusites. But I gave you victory over them. 12) And I sent terror ahead of you to drive out the two kings of the Amorites. It was not your swords or bows that brought you victory. 13) I gave you land you had not worked on, and I gave you towns you did not build—the towns where you are now living. I gave you vineyards and olive groves for food, though you did not plant them.… 

Welcome to (Part 2) of this series. I hope you afforded yourself the opportunity to study (Part 1) so that you get a more complete understanding of this very important aspect of your life. 

As Born-Again Believers in Jesus Christ and children of God, our Promised land is the New Covenant of Grace. Our Egypt; from whence God delivered us, was the Old Covenant of the law; where we had to “DO” good things in order to earn God’s blessings, as in 
(Do-Good-Get-Good / Do-Bad-Get-Bad). Jesus has fulfilled all the laws and suffered in our stead to qualify us for ALL of God’s blessings. God’s grace is His undeserved, unearned and unmerited favor. And because it is undeserved, unearned and unmerited, all of us qualify for it. But how do we walk in it?

Success in your business and every part of your life comes by the favor of God; Even the breath that you’re taking right now. It’s never you, just as it was not the swords or the bows of the Israelites that brought them victory even though they did fight the enemy.

You may ask, shouldn't there be an aspect that man has to do; and then God does the rest?  - NO! You see, thinking that way only puts you back in Egypt; under the mosaic laws from whence Christ already delivered you. (Galatians 4:4-5) Remember the phrase in the opening scripture above; (“I gave you towns you did not build—the towns where you are now living. I gave you vineyards and olive groves for food, though you did not plant them.…

Beloved, our flesh always likes to have a part to play. This way we have something to thump our chest and boast about; as in the so-called self-made man. 
(Ephesians 2:8-9) (NLT) tells us “8) God saved you by his grace when you believed. And you can’t take credit for this; it is a gift from God. 9) Salvation is not a reward for the good things we have done, so none of us can boast about it. 

This word “Saved” is the Greek word “Sozo” which means deliver or protect (literally or figuratively): - heal, preserve, save (self), do well, be (make) whole. All of This is the gift of God and not something you have to earn. “Saved” is not just salvation from hell, but salvation in health, wealth, wisdom, happiness etc.

We readily believe in the FREE gift of salvation from hell, sickness and disease etc. Why is it, that when it comes to financial prosperity, we start mixing Grace with The Law? We feel that we have to work our fingers to the bone. (Psalm 127:1-2) NLT tells us that; 1) “Unless the Lord builds a house, the work of the builders is wasted. Unless the Lord protects a city, guarding it with sentries will do no good. 2) It is useless for you to work so hard from early morning until late at night, anxiously working for food to eat; for God gives rest to his loved ones”.

So, am I advocating that you sit on your hands, or lie on the couch all day and just pray and confess and do nothing? – NO! – I will elaborate further and break this down in (Part 3) so please stay tuned in.
