We go to work on a daily basis and at the end of a week, we expect to get paid.
We attend university, we hope to increase in knowledge and if we stick it out a little longer, we expect a degree.
Why is it that we believe in God but never expect anything from the Kingdom? Granted, whatever we do is done out of love but we say we know we love God but never expect Him to bless us. Most earthly father provide for their children, so how much more should you expect God to provide for you? A lot more.
Cast away false humility, religious myths, proverbs that are not in the Bible and learn the truth about God's will for your life!
Here it is in a nutshell:
God told Abraham that He would bless Him until all the families of the earth are blessed. He promised that if we obey his commands, we will be blessed everywhere we go in our finances. He said that anything we do will prosper because He takes delight in the prosperity of His servants, in every area of our life including our health, he bore our sicknesses so we don't have to be diseased!
He goes on to say that He already knows the plans He has for us and they are not to harm us, but to give us a good future and an expected end. He explained how to do that, believe, dont doubt in your heart and anything you say can be yours!! Nothing is impossible to those that believe! He has so much in store for us, we cant even imagine it! We are entitled to this because we are Abraham's seed and heirs according to the promise. You can do all things through Christ because He strengthens you. He wishes above all things that we are blessed and that we prosper even as our souls prosper.
