Being Prosperous is Thinking Prosperous

Prosperity is not only about money.

There are many people who have money; they are rich but they don’t have peace. That is not prosperity. When God prospers you, you have peace of mind, you can enjoy your money and nothing bad will come to you.

But he said, “Your brother came deceitfully and took your blessing.”
Esau said, “Isn’t he rightly named Jacob? This is the second time he has taken
advantage of me: He took my birthright, and now he’s taken my blessing!” Then he
asked, “Haven’t you reserved any blessing for me?” Isaac answered Esau, “I have
made him lord over you and have made all his relatives his servants, and I have
sustained him with grain and new wine. So what can I possibly do for you, my son?”
Esau said to his father, “Do you have only one blessing, my father? Bless me too, my
father!” Then Esau wept aloud. His father Isaac answered him, “Your dwelling will be
away from the earth’s richness, away from the dew of heaven above. You will live by the
sword and you will serve your brother. But when you grow restless, you will throw his
yoke from off your neck.”

Genesis 27:35-4

 

Some of us are living on leftovers; somebody else has already eaten the major food and now you’re left with leftovers. A life of leftovers is a life of poverty. A life of leftovers is a life of sicknesses. A life of leftover is a life of pains, you only shed tears. People have to tip you before you can even come to church. People have to sleep with you before they can promote you. People have to do certain things for you before you can be free in life. But no. Now is the time for you to take over your own life.

Most of the time, when you witness a lot of weddings, you also want to have your own wedding. People always invite you, and then you go and ask yourself, “God, when am I also going to get my own?” Because you are a believer, something is happening in your life. The father spoke to Esau, “If you can be restless, it would come to a point that you have to be restless, that enough is enough.” That means that day is your day of freedom, and that’s a day for somebody today. God is going to move you from slavery to freedom; from the back side of life, to the front side of life.

Life does not always give you what you want, but life gives you what you demand from it. God said, “Ask and it shall be given unto you, seek and you shall find.” God’s timing is the best but there’s a level that you must be restless. When you feel that then that is the day your freedom has arrived. Greatness is your own imagination it is not a place. The greatest nation is not in Britain, the greatest nation is not Sweden, or Spain, or Europe, or any place. The greatest nation is your own imagination. Whatever you imagine you get, it will come to you. If you can imagine and be focused, God will prosper you. Think and focus and pray to God that you will be a billionaire and this can happen.

If you want to be a great person, your ideas and your mindset must change. Even the way you move must change, the way you act, the way you eat. You are praying to God, “I want to be a billionaire.” The same money God is giving you, if you invested the money, you can eat something. Food-fullness will destroy your fruitfulness. You must desire to prosper. You are sitting here and you are desiring to have fleets of cars, you want to have buildings, you want to own your own business; if you desire something, start on God’s altar at this very moment.
