A NEW BEGINNING OF PROSPERITY
Memorise: This month shall be unto you the beginning of months: it shall be the first month of the year to you. Exodus 12:2
Read: Exodus 12:33-36, Bible in one year: Ruth 1-2, Mark 1:1-28
When the Almighty God grants a new beginning to an individual or a nation, it could be a new beginning of prosperity. Imagine the Hebrew nation which for over four hundred years had been at the mercy of their Egyptian rulers, coming out of
millionaires simply because the Almighty God decided to grant them a new
beginning. I pray for you that this month shall be to you as the first month of
the year in astonishing prosperity in Jesus’ Name. How did the Lord do this for
the Israelites? The Bible says that He gave them favour in the sight of the
Egyptians, so that the Egyptians gave them whatever they asked for. The
treasures of the Egyptians were transferred to them without them having to
shoot an arrow. The Bible in Proverbs 16:7 says: Egypt
“When a man’s ways please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.”
This scripture sums up the experience of the Israelites. Whenever God makes a pronouncement, we shall learn to take Him at His word. Sometimes, this is easier read about than practiced. Imagine how difficult it would have been for the Israelites to believe that before daybreak after the night of the Password. They would cross over from poverty to prosperity.
“Be glad then, ye children of Zion, and rejoice in the LORD your God: for he hath given you the former rain moderately, and he will cause to come down for you the rain, the former rain, and the latter rain in the first month.” Joel 2:23
For this beautiful prophecy to come to pass in your life, some spiritual conditions must be met. Prior to this prophecy, the Lord demanded that his people turn to Him with all their hearts: with fasting, weeping and mourning (Joel 2:12-13). He asked them to rend their hearts and not their garments, and return to Him. We can deduce from this narrative that the poor condition that a lot of people find themselves in today is caused by their spiritual poverty. Some people live in abject poverty because their lifestyle has turned God, who should bless them, into their enemy. Here is the good news: when this great God turns a life around onto godliness, he also changes the physical condition of the fellow concerned. Settling the issue of poverty was one of the reasons why Christ came (2nd Corinthians 8:9). In the Name of Jesus Christ, I welcome you to your new beginning of prosperity. Only believe in the Lord Jesus Christ and repent of your sins.
Father, in your infinite mercy, banishes poverty from every area of my life in Jesus’ Name.
