But whoso looks into the perfect law of liberty and continues in it, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the word, this man shall be blessed in his deed-(James 1:25)
God’s word is practicable and it is for us to live by. Some Christians only talk prosperity but never live it. This shouldn’t be so. You see, when you’re living on the plane of life where all you know is what God has said, your prosperity is assured. But if you always complain instead of keeping your focus on God’s word and your trust in Him, you’ll never have it made.
Somebody says “well, I’m trying my best to live according to God’s word, but I don’t know why I’m not prospering financially”. You’re looking at the wrong thing, when you say you’ve been putting your faith to work and it’s not working, then you’ve not been putting your faith to work. For the fact that you said that, that alone tells you that you put no faith to work, because faith always works.
God’s word never fails after trying fruitlessly to cast the devil out of a young lad, the disciples of Jesus went to him and asked. “master, why couldn’t we cast the devil out?” (Matthew 17:19) Jesus answered them and said, “because of your unbelief” (Matthew 17:20) He didn’t try to be diplomatic, rather, He told them the outright truth. The disciples didn’t think they were unbelieving, but Jesus said that was the reason they couldn’t cast the devil out of the young man. Sadly, this is the situation of some of God’s children today.
Many of God’s children are trying everything they know, they are working hard at their jobs and businesses, yet they’re still broke and in debt. I’m talking about prayerful, wonderful believers.
Many times we say, “I’ve done everything, but nothing has changed”. Beloved, unbelief is what short-circuits the power of God in our life. God’s word is something you can stake your life on. It’s tested and proven. It never fails and will not fail. Once you’ve learnt to anchor your existence on the word. You’re ready for permanent prosperity.
Therefore, set your focus on the word, refuse to observe any contrary situation and you’re on your way to a life of success and permanent prosperity.
