Why God Delights in Your Prosperity

Why God Delights in Your Prosperity



Your Father wants His children to enjoy financial well-being



The Bible assures us that God has great pleasure in our prosperity. In Psalm 35:27 we read:


“The Lord be magnified, Who delights in the prosperity of His servant.” ~ Psalm 35:27


So many believers struggle with the fact that God really does want them to prosper. They struggle so much with it that they actually build an anti-prosperity and anti-success theology to make themselves feel better about staying broke. 


Others also have an unscriptural view of prosperity and teach lavish spending and opulence instead. 


Both views are unbalanced.


Today, we’ll look into this verse and consider the reasons why God really does delight in our prosperity. 


We’ll also take a look at what true biblical prosperity is. 


Are you ready? Let’s dig deeper!


In this episode you will:


  • Understand how presumption makes us doubt God's desire to bless us.


  • Learn the two reasons why God wants you to prosper.


  • Get a full definition of true biblical prosperity.


  • Understand what your sanctification has to do with your prosperity.



Memorable Quotes:


“To paraphrase the Bible, we could say, “If you then, though you are evil, delight in the prosperity of your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven delight in your prosperity.”


“The Bible says our own righteousness is as filthy rags before Him (Isaiah 64:6), and yet we dare presuppose that our love towards our own children is greater than His love towards us?”


“The math is quite simple: those who expect great things from God are the ones who get great things from God. Those who believe God really does delights in their prosperity are those who prosper the most.”


“We call ourselves believers, but what do we believe?”


“God has the power to provide you with more than enough of every kind of grace. That way, you will have everything you need always and in everything to provide more than enough for every kind of good work.” ~ 2 Corinthians 9:8 (CEB)


“It is NOT God’s will for you to be poor.”


“You cannot achieve new things, or break new ground, with your old thoughts.”


“Limiting beliefs are preventing you from becoming the best version of yourself.” 


“When we are called by Christ to die to self it’s a call to be sold-out to Him. It’s not a call to poverty.”


“Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. As children of God, we are all meant to shine, to be the light of the world. We were born-again to make manifest the glory of God that is within us.”


“Unfortunately, becoming Christlike (sanctification) has often been taught in religious circles in terms of making yourself smaller to appear more humble, not making yourself more, or to become more.”


“If you always do what you’ve always done, your life will always be what it’s always been.”




Work with us in 2020!


The Bible says it: God doesn’t want you to get by, He wants you to get wealth (Deuteronomy 8:18). That’s why He gave you the power for it.


Now, this begs the question: What are YOU going to do about it?



Maybe you’ve already been doing it and you’re successful. Good for you!


Maybe you’ve had a business idea that you want to get going for a while. I encourage you to do it now. Or, maybe you don’t know yet. Maybe you’d like to build an extra income, start a business, pay off your debts, or build residual income but have absolutely no idea where to start.



If you’d like to get started towards ‘building wealth’. If you believe that God does indeed delight in your prosperity… we have a proposition for you. 



Most financial experts today agree that in order to create wealth in today’s economy, you need at least 5 streams of income. Solomon even goes as far as seven different streams of income: “Invest in seven ventures, yes, in eight; you do not know what disaster may come upon the land.” ~ Ecclesiastes 11:2



The reality, however, is that most people have 2 or 3 max. 




  • If you want to get acquainted with a great extra stream of income
  • If you desire to leave an inheritance to your children’s children
  • If you desire to bear more than just spiritual fruit
  • If you want to stop commuting and work from home
  • If you want to help more people
  • If you desire better things for yourself and your family
  • If you want more time freedom to spend on things that matter



We believe God wants you to bear financial fruit for His glory, for your well-being, for your family, for your legacy, for your testimony, for His Kingdom, and yes, even for His delight.



And the good news is that we are looking for believers who care about changing their situation. We are looking for people who don’t want to just get by anymore. We are looking for people who want things to change and who are willing to change to make this happen.



Remember, If you always do what you’ve always done, your life will always be what it’s always been.



We’re looking for people who are willing to think differently to achieve different results.



We are looking to work with believers who have a growth mindset and who truly believe that “God has given them the ability to create wealth in order to establish His covenant upon the earth” ~ Deuteronomy 8:18. 



A company we work with is constantly growing and expanding and as a result, we are seeking people who want to grow in leadership, change people's lives, prosper financially and leave a legacy.
