You can work all your life and not be a day richer for it in blessing! Money does not bring prosperity.
Prosperity is something only obtained in a life lived in the harmony of God’s will.
It is the total peace, security, wellbeing, care and protection of God enjoyed in His Presence. It is God’s Goodness added and experienced without any trouble being added.
Many work hard but their labour is as straw in the wind.
They sacrifice their lives to plant for riches but reap trouble and the tares of more cares. They spend their nights planning and their days toiling, but produce no more than a restless life that never comes to peace.
Seek and find God’s will and you will discover the Fountain of Life, the River of Peace and the Source of a life lived under the Shadow of His Presence, where He opens His hand and cares for you, nourishing you to be satisfied every day! (Psalm 145:16).
“It is vain for you to rise early,
To retire late,
To eat the bread of anxious labors —
For He gives [blessings] to His beloved even in his sleep,” Psalm 127:2.
