To Me To Prosper Is Not

For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you.  And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:11-13 New King James Version

 

To me  to prosper is not to gain material wealth but rather to grow in the spiritual wealth in Jesus’ precious love.

 

Material wealth comes and goes like a summer rain.  Joseph- Anthony: Green

As well it is like a sprinkle on the parched land.

It feels good while the sprinkle is happening, but when the sprinkle ends the land cries for more.

 

So too it is with material wealth.

Yes you feel happy when you have all the newest toys but quickly grow bored of them and then yearn for something more.

Material wealth is like being addicted to heroin. At first just a little will do but you quickly need more and stronger until it destroys you.

I am blessed with a spiritual love affair with Christ and my life is filled with peace, joy, and contentment (the gifts of the love of the Holy Spirit).

Comparing material wealth to spiritual wealth is like comparing a bowl of rice to a smorgasbord of fresh fruit and vegetables prepared by a talented chef.

Prayer: Oh my beloved Jesus, You are so wonderful Please bless me with the life giving refreshing waters of Your Spirit. As a tree’s roots receives nourishment from the soil, thank you for blessing me with the blessing of Your spirit in my life. I gratefully thank You in the name of he whose blood has made this precious gift possible Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah

One thought on “To Me To Prosper Is Not

  1. Spiritual gain lasts, it is made of the incorruptible. The earth and all of its treasures shall pass away, and in fact are passing now, but heavenly treasures last an eternity. The same is true with spiritual maturity. More Godly wisdom is more wealth…
