“His soul will abide in prosperity, and his descendants will inherit the land. The secret of the Lord is for those who fear Him, and He will make them know His covenant.” (Psalm 25:13-14)
The prosperity of the world is not the prosperity of the Lord. Everything belongs to Him, so why worry about things? Live in the truth and knowledge of the Lord and know the true life that prospers in the way He knows is good. A good inheritance is the knowledge of the Lord and walking in His ways. Abide in the Lord and He will abide in You just as our Savior spoke.
Lord, I need Your help to overcome the constant propaganda of this age which equates prosperity to the accumulation of things. Help me see that walking with You in all the ways Your Word speaks is the greatest ambition for all of us. Guide me according to Your Word that I would walk in the ways You have established from the beginning. Prosper me in Your Word.
Lord Jesus, You who had no earthly possessions, guide me in the way, truth and life that You have come to establish that I may walk in them. Lead me each day to see more clearly the truth You have revealed and live according to the grace You have purchased for all who believe. In the way You know is right for me to walk, guide me to the Father’s glory to be whom You have created me to be. Amen.
