“Then answered I them, and said unto them, The God of heaven, He will prosper us; therefore, we His servants will arise and build; but ye have no portion, nor right, nor memorial, in Jerusalem.”
I think when we think of God prospering us, we think of God being far off in heaven and only prospering us to be where He is one day. However, Nehemiah said “the God of heaven He will prosper us” while embarking on something that was well beyond his qualifications and experience. Nehemiah was aware of God being present there with him to help him prosper in accomplishing the greatest thing he would ever do.
Paul said in Romans, 8:31 “…If God be for us, who can be against us”. Imagine that, God is for us not against us! God is for and not against our dreams and goals. He is for and not against you starting that business, getting married, writing that book, or having that baby. He is right there with you to see that you prosper in all these things or whatever you desire to do. He is your heavenly cheerleader. Hallelujah! No one wants you to prosper more than God. So much so that He Himself came to live in us to assure us of prosperity. Now ask yourself, has God ever failed? Of course not. Therefore, you cannot fail. Paul goes on to say in Romans 8:32, “He who spared not His Son but delivered Him up for us all how shall He not with Him freely give us all things”. My friend, “all things” includes prosperity.
Listen, regardless of what you have to face as you work towards your dream or desire, know that you are prospering and the devil is in a constant state of defeat. Think about that, if you are prospering anyone or anything that opposes you is defeated. Romans 8:37, “Nay in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him that loved us.” The key here is knowing that you are not alone. That God is with you to prosper you. You must persuade yourself of this very fact as Paul did. Paul said “I am persuaded …” Romans 8:38. It might take you some time to become fully persuaded but don’t stop, keep confessing what you want to see until you can say “I am fully persuaded that the God of Heaven prospers me.”
