What did God tell Moses to do? To speak to the rock. And what was going to happen? Water was going to come out. In fact until Moses carried out the instruction and spoke, nothing would have happened. But there are many rocks in your life which need only your speaking to them to release their stored contents. Why has the water not come out? Because you are looking at the rock as a stone, but God is seeing it as a reservoir.
More often than not, I tend to think, prosperity and success for a Child of God is based on faith and hardwork. Every single thing Jesus did and said was beyond doubt to lift and inspire people. My heart aches with pain when I see Christians who do not believe in hardwork.
There are many people today who cannot speak to their circumstances because the devil continues to generate negative confessions out of their mouth. You are the speaker, God is the doer. Therefore do not let your dreams die halfway. Do not your visions die midstream. Do not reduce the scope of your thoughts and what you can achieve in life. God never gives up on His dream. You must not!
You can speak life or death to your dreams and visions. That is why it is very important to study and watch carefully the word that proceeds out of your month, because God watches over it to bring it to pass. My point is, if the tree died because Jesus spoke and cursed it for not bearing fruit, then we as Christians must also speak and expect mighty big results. God speaks and expects results. And we are made in the image and likeness of Him.
Religion in all cases associates poverty with piety; suffering with holiness; and burdens with humility. That is pure religious stuff and not full Gospel message as presented by Jesus Christ. (John 10:10). My dear friend, don’t ask for prosperity if you will not use it for God. This has been my maxim whenever I think of prosperity in Christ.
