For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with all your heart.Jeremiah 29: 11-13
God has always promised, “If you are willing and obedient, you shall eat the good of the land” (Isaiah 1:19). Understand though, that being willing means more than just saying, “Well, Lord, if You want me to prosper, I’ll prosper.” Being willing means you apply the force of your will and determine to receive by faith what God has promised, no matter how impossible the circumstances may seem to be.
And why does God want us to prosper?
The Bible says, “Let him that stole steal no more: but rather let him labour, working with his hands the thing which is good, that he may have to give to him that needeth” (Ephesians 4:28).
