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.
