Open Heaven 20 July 2019 – Divine Prosperity & The Word, written by Pastor E. A. Adeboye
TODAY’S TOPIC: DIVINE PROSPERITY & THE WORD
MEMORISE: “This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shall meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shall make thy way prosperous, and then thou shall have good success.” – (Joshua 1:8).
READ: James 1:22-25 (KJV)
22. But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.
23. For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a man beholding his natural face in a glass;
24. For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth what manner of man he was.
25. But whoso looketh into the perfect law of liberty, and continueth therein, he being not a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work, this man shall be blessed in his deed.
Open Heaven 20 July 2019 – MESSAGE:
Yesterday, we reflected on the blessedness of having a teachable heart. The Holy Spirit taught us that when an individual is instructed in God’s word, he becomes wise, and if he was already wise, he becomes even wiser. Today, we want to consider the link between God’s word and divine prosperity. What the Lord says concerning walking in prosperity in whatever we do in life is clear in today’s memory verse. The link between God’s word and divine prosperity is that God’s word makes a person wise and wisdom is all a person need to proper in life. God’s specifically told Joshua that he must be a friend of His word if he will proper in his God-giving assignment.
This instruction applies to everyone irrespective of vocation and age. Doctors, teachers, engineers, pastors, artisans and even soldiers need the wisdom of God’s word to break through into divine prosperity. David, a great commander of an outstanding army, need to hear from God before he could succeed in his bid to recover all that the enemy had stolen from his camp (1 Samuel 30:18-19).
The word of God further reveals the true source of wealth, saying in Deuteronomy 8:18:
“But thou shall remember the LORD thy God: for it is He that giveth thee power to get wealth, the he may establish the covenant which he swear unto thy fathers, as it is this day”
From this scripture, we know that true wealth devoid of sorrow comes only from the Almighty God. We can therefore spare ourselves the many problems that come with looking elsewhere for wealth if we allow God’s word to dwell richly in us (1 Timothy 6:10). Beloved to you desire to prosper? All you need is to get properly acquainted with the word of God. Don’t be among those who see God’s word as outdated, to their own frustration and life time agony. However, if you have not given your life to Christ, it means you have not known the Word at all, because Jesus is the eternal Word of God. So, give your life to Jesus today and learn of Him (Matthew 11:28-30).

God will bless you richly as you learn His principles on wealth and apply them to your daily life. Take note of the words used by the Holy Spirit in James 1:25: it’s the doer of the work that is blessed in his or her deeds. May God prosper the works of your hands in Jesus’ Name.
Implement an effective and regular study plan of God’s word and begin to do the works it teaches in your daily life.
