Live long and prosper. That sounds too good to be true. Bingo! Though it sounds idealistic, I do believe the Lord wants us to live long and prosper. He has created us to bear fruit and he put us on this earth for that reason. Prosperity means meeting the right people at the right time, climbing the right mountain in the right season, fighting the right battle with the right weapons, having the right people around us with the right skills, being at the right place to see opportunity and having the right provisions there when we need them to fulfill our destiny. Then we can help other people fulfill their destiny. This is how to be a prosperous Christian.
In my first book on Biblical finance, Prosperity with a Purpose, I focused on giving a picture of God as El Shaddai, the God of more than enough. In the second book, A Practical Path to a Prosperous Life, I focus on the practical tools to go beyond just knowing about El Shaddai. The goal is to develop a prosperous soul as the Holy Spirit teaches you to prosper. Please find this resource at A Practical Path to a Prosperous Life on the House to House Publications website.
