The true prosperity Gospel

Thus says God, ‘Why do you break the commandments of the Lord, so that you cannot prosper? ...(2 Chronicles 24:20, ESV)

We were created for God and God’s blessings. Our prosperity and blessing can only be found in Him. Is it any wonder that our souls dry up when we leave the oasis?

We’re so needy that we wouldn’t even seek God’s blessings before Christ chose us. No intuition or skill could ever have brought us here. Forty years in the desert would only be the beginning if He left us on our own.

Today, may we obey Him, for He alone blesses. Today, may we bless Him, for He alone obeyed.

If I can't hit one of those sweet spots between cars, I might just do every other line ...wishin they was dancin a jig... ciga-cigar right from Cuba-Cu-ba ... They might think they saw something, do a double take, but loo
