Your Prosperity Begins from Your Mind
This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success- Joshua 1:8
If the Bible talks about 'good success', then it means there is also a 'bad success'. Success that does not have its origin in God, which cannot be defended and protected by God is certainly not a good one. "THOU SHALT MAKE THY WAY PROSPEROUS" means prosperity does not depend on God but it depends on what you do with the most powerful weapon given to you by God. It means good success comes from your mind; your mind can create prosperity.
Develop your God-given asset and let your mind be proactive. An untrained, unguarded mind can only create extreme poverty that can crash a family unto penury. Wealth is increasing exponentially, and few individuals are getting ridiculously rich just by having good ideas and thinking. This is the era where human beings work with their minds, not their bodies. Learn to be with people who are moving forward so you won't be left behind. God wants you to be able to create wealth and blessing through your mind and there are many ways of getting wealth which could be through; Saving money, Investing, Understanding the law of supply and demand, Understanding the law (this is learning how to play by the rules. Be enlightened by the information around you).
Great opportunities are not seen with the eyes but with the mind. Many people never get wealth because they are not trained financially to recognize opportunities. You will never invest if you are afraid of losing. For instance, the man with one talent in the bible who refused to invest because he was afraid of losing.
Most times, we have been taught that it is not good to make mistakes but beloved, the reality is that in life, we often learn by making mistakes. I implore you to use the idea God gave you because it is what you know that is your greatest wealth and it is what you don't know that is your greatest risk.
Prayer: Lord, may my eyes of understanding be enlightened in Jesus name. Amen!
