When we think about prosperity
It’s the physical aspects that come to mind;
To have riches in abundance
And materialism of every kind.
The prosperity gospel is focused
On leading to much success;
To have a mindset fixed on wealth
And to name and claim the best.
But true prosperity is nothing of the sort
When it focuses on eternal things,
It’s when the heart of an overcomer is prosperous
And not what our circumstance brings.
Apostle Paul was beaten
And suffered in extraordinary ways,
But his soul was prosperous throughout
Focusing on his eternal days.
Prosperity is bringing
God’s will into existence,
And not our own successes
With all pride and all pretences.
True prosperity is humble
It’s the inner attitude of the heart,
And the fullness of God’s riches
Which sincerely set us apart.
