God has promised to meet all of our needs, but provision is just the beginning. Unfortunately, the message of prosperity has been so misused in the church that leaders shy away from talking about finances at all. Here’s the deal… prosperity is not for you. It’s not meant that you would prosper so that you can have bigger cars and nicer houses. Not that there is anything wrong with those things, but it’s not the purpose.
The purpose of prosperity is to advance the kingdom of God.
So often we stay in a place where we depend on God to meet our needs. We live from paycheck to paycheck and rely on the odd miracle to get us through tight times. This is miraculous… and God will meet our needs. That’s a promise from the scriptures. But I firmly believe those times of meeting our needs are just so we learn to trust God.
