The Key To Prosperity
A key is a device, usually metal, used to unlock a lock. It allows a person to gain passage to an otherwise prohibited area.
What is the key to prosperity? Like a master locksmith, Dr. Myles Monroe shows us the secret to unlocking true prosperity. You are just minutes away from finding your destiny and experiencing prosperity as God designed it!
God is a God of provision.
He is Jehovah-Jireh, "The Lord Will Provide."
He provides everything, but He provides it after you begin the work of the vision.
Your obedience to your vision affects not only your life but also the lives of those who will work with you.
This means that obedience to vision is not a private issue.
It affects everyone who is supposed to work with you and be impacted by your life.
Prosperity means having everything that is needed.
It doesn't necessarily mean having a large bank account, several cars, and a large house, although you might need those things to fulfill your vision.
For example, because of our purpose, my wife and I need a long dining room table that can seat a large number of people since we often have guests of the ministry to dinner. That's part of our assignment. It might also be yours, depending on what you are called to do. However, perhaps you need a four-chair table rather than a twelve-chair table because you usually just have your family at dinner.
Instead of using the money on a large table, you use it for other things related to your personal or church vision. Similarly, I may not need something that you must have to fulfill your purpose. If I had it, it would be excess. The point is that God provides for all the needs of our visions, no matter what they are, large or small.
Several years ago, I got the opportunity to tour the Ford Motor Company.
I soon discovered that the company makes the spare parts before they build the new cars.
Then they make the cars.
That's why, when anything needs to be replaced on your car, the part is already prepared.
They prepare what you're going to need before you even buy your car.
In the same way, everything you're going to need for your vision is already provided for. Even before you came on the scene, God had it all prepared. Daily we should ask God, "Deliver to me what I need today."
Second Peter 1:3 says that God's "divine power has given us everything we need for life and godliness."
Where is it?
It's waiting for you to ask for it with confidence.
God is not short of anything you need. What I'm concerned about is that you may be asking for some things that aren't yours. Let me explain.
If you pursue the wrong assignment, you're going to need things you can't get, because the provision isn't there unless the vision is yours. It's someone else's assignment, and he has his own warehouse.
Sometimes, people make demands on God that He can't supply because He can't give us what doesn't belong to us.
Again, knowing God's will for your life is the key to your prosperity.
