You Must Outgrow Foolishness So That Prosperity Brings You Blessing and Not Harm

God wants you to increase financially and spiritually. First, you need to outgrow your fleshly foolishness so that your prosperity brings you blessing and not harm.

Find out what God says in His Word and do it!

You see, Godly prosperity is the result of putting God’s Word first place in your life. Apply His principles on a continuous basis and take heed to Matthew chapter 6:25–33.

“Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on, Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which today is, and tomorrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? Therefore take no thought saying, What shall we eat? or What shall we drink? or Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”

It’s God’s will for man to believe that He will take care of us. I remember the time, I realized Romans 13:8. It says,

“Owe no man any thing, but to love one another for he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.”

I wasn’t too excited about it because what came to my mind was, “How in the world can I do this without a mortgage for a house or credit cards to get stuff to put in it? But, I decided to obey God regardless of the cost. So I became committed to God to get out of debt and stay out.

You can’t separate God’s financial principles from the rest of His principles. They all work together.
