GOD PROSPERED THEM
Deuteronomy 8:18, “Always remember that it is the Lord your God that gives you power to become rich, and he does it to fulfill his promise to your ancestor”.
Riches, prosperity and wealth belong to the Lord. The Lord gives the power to be rich. The bible says does who fear God lack nothing good. Psalm 34: 9, “Fear the Lord, you His holy people, for those who fear Him lack nothing”. The Lord also delights in prospering His servants.
Deuteronomy 30:9 And the Lord your God will make you abundantly prosperous in every work of your hand, in the fruit of your body, of your cattle, of your land, for good; for the Lord will again delight in prospering you, as He took delight in your fathers.
The Lord prospers does who diligently serve Him, a few examples of righteous people who God prospered are mentioned below. The Lord is the same yesterday, today and forever more. God desires to prosper you like the servants of old, only if we surrender our lives to Him completely.
