Over and over scripture ascribes that God is faithful to fulfill His promises. It was King David, lonesome shepherd, promoted to rule one of the greatest kingdoms in history, who said concerning the economy of his time. “I have been young and I have been old but I have never seen the righteous forsaken or God’s seed gone begging bread.” Psalms 37:25. So perhaps from those two things come the qualifiers to experience Scriptural infallibility prosperity.

 

1. God is faithful and He does not lie (God’s faithfulness is his akin to his truthfulness) Hebrews 6:12-20

2. And the recipients of His promises must be righteous Psalms 37:25, Matthews 5:6, James 5:16

And, if being righteous sound like the deal breaker it isn’t. It is actually the closer, when we realize that righteousness is confirmed by the blood of Jesus our Savior on the cross. The cross and the blood alone is the testimony of His faithfulness and willing and love toward us. What left for the believer trust in God for His provisions is follow Jesus instruction in Matthews 6:33 Seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things (that the Gentiles seek) will be added unto you.

 

1. Tithe Malachi 3:9-12, Genesis. Essentially taking God as your partner and honoring recognizing him as your source and supply. Forgot about the legalistic approach to giving to God. You can’t out give Him. Tithing is also an act of faith that declares your belief and activity in Gods way of doing things. Tithing is also citizen responsibility to support the kingdom of God.

2. Invest into someone else’s future. Be a Good Samaritan or a good neighbor. Jesus is very clear that we are to do unto others as we desire other to do back to us. Luke 6:31-38, Luke 10:29-37

3. Take Jesus as your kinsman redeemer. Understand that every dream is fulfilled in Jesus Christ (like Boaz was to Ruth) despite past failures or diverted dreams. Ruth 1:1-8, 4:11-13

4. Prioritize God kingdom in your life. Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness. God has promised that when we prioritize His kingdom and His way of doing things (including not  worrying) all the things that those who operate in the world system―of toil and gain ―laboriously seek, will be added graciously unto you Matthews 6:25-34

5. Become a farmer, a harvester and a distributor. Sow (plant seeds―money, kind words, love, etc.) on purpose to reap a harvest. This principle is one that is most visible in the natural realm. Farmers to bankers use this principle, although its roots are from the Word of God. When invest your money, life, time or talent into something, it will always yield a fruitful harvest. Harvest yield is based on the quality of seed or investment planted versus condition of the land sown. So always harvest. Be in a position to harvest. Ask God to make you a distributor of blessings and not just a recipient. Psalms 112, Proverbs 3:9,10, Mark 4:1-29

6. Trust God

A. Trust God with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and will direct your path. Always do what God says to do in his word and as led by the Holy Spirit. Proverbs 3:4-6, Romans 8:14

B.  Still have a plan. The old adage is if fail to plan, you have planned to fail. Having a plan keeps you on the path that God designated for your sustenance and prosperity. The important thing is to seek God for that plan and not depend on you own. God’s plans are not always headed right for the horizon in front of you. He may have you turn and take you on purpose to the Red Sea of life. If He does don’t despair. God will open the sea and faith in Him will move any mountain. Your plan should contain your life vision, personal and family mission statements, goals, steps to attain those goals, and a progress report. Again remember this is a God inclusive plan. David said in Psalms 112, “My heart fixed trusting in the Lord.”

C. Meditate on God’s Word day and night as according to Joshua 1:8. God promise Joshua that if you do it will cause you to prosper. Isaiah---says God is the Lord that teaches us to Profit. When you study God word (and the examples of faith is scripture) you will find He is not just about sustaining His people. He desires them to increase.

7. Seek God’s wisdom (His Word) Wisdom dwells with prudence (common sense) and with it the knowledge of witty inventions. Ask God for an idea or a God Word (better than a good word) that will add to you and your family economy. Then listen (through his Word and the Holy Spirit that lives inside). Remember His sheep hear His voice and the voice of a stranger they will not follow. Jesus said we have not because we ask not. Proverbs 8:12, John 10:27, James 1:5-8

8. Reverence and honor God―The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Again, as according to Psalms 112, when you do, wealth and riches shall be in your house—the word house also represents the idea of the economy. The etymology of the word comes from household management of your house. When we fear God (highly reverence Him as being the one we depend on), He has promised that not only will our household be filled with his abundance provision and spirit, but we would become a distributor of that wealth. Psalms 111:10, Proverbs 1:7

9. Operate in God blessing. God told Adam be fruitful, multiply, replenish the earth and have dominion, and subdue. Although because of sin Adam was removed from the Garden of Eden the commandment still applies. God has given each of us the responsibility to garden the area of life we have been assigned to. Some succeed in the first three but like Adam fail to subdue and allow lack to dominate in life. Genesis 1:28,29

10. Find a place of agreement, pray and stand on the Word of God. Jesus said, “if two of you shall agree on earth as touching anything that they shall ask, it shall be done for them of my Father which is in heaven.” Jesus said God’s children have not because they ask not. He also said if you fathers on earth which are evil give good things to their children, how much more shall your heavenly Father give good things to those who ask. Agreement is a good place for husband and wives. Your marriage partner should be your live in prayer partner and point of agreement for heavenly miracles. Matthews 18:19, Matthews 7:11,1 Peter 3:6,7

11. Dare to take a step of faith for God. The 4 lepers in 1 Kings got into agreement during a time of economic siege in Israel. But they came into agreement and dared to do an uncommon thing. They went right down to the enemy camp and God turned the approach of 4 sick guys filled with faith into the sound of a might army. Their desperate faith not only got them fed, but changed the outcome of the whole economic situation in Israel. 2 Kings 7:1-11, Matthews 14:28, Mark 11:22-24

12. Pray for the nation, town, area you live in. It’s not God’s will that any perish but all be saved and although that is applicable mostly to eternal salvation, it is still testifies to his love for people. As God’s righteous people we have the job to pray and make a difference. Remember it is righteous that exalts a nation (or family) and Go will exalt the nation (or family) whose God is the Lord. The calling card to Abraham―our father of faith in Genesis 12:1-3—In thee and in thy seed all the nations (or families) of the earth shall be blessed. 1 Timothy 2:1-3, Proverbs 14:34, 2 Chronicles 7:14

We do not apologize by calling these―fail proof ways to prosper. The congealment is the fact that it is scripture. Hebrews 6:18 says it is impossible for God to lie.
