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.
