Do Right in Your Service to the Lord, and Prosper!
2 Chron 31:
2 And Hezekiah appointed the courses of the priests and the Levites after their courses, every man according to his service, the priests and Levites for burnt offerings and for peace offerings, to minister, and to give thanks, and to praise in the gates of the tents of the LORD.
3 He appointed also the king’s portion of his substance for the burnt offerings, to wit, for the morning and evening burnt offerings, and the burnt offerings for the sabbaths, and for the new moons, and for the set feasts, as it is written in the law of the LORD.
20 And thus did Hezekiah throughout all Judah, and wrought that which was good and right and truth before the LORD his God.
21 And in every work that he began in the service of the house of God, and in the law, and in the commandments, to seek his God, he did it with all his heart, and prospered.
Jesus is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Notice the actions of this king, Hezekiah. He set in order the sacrifices and worship in the house of the Lord, and made sure that offerings were set in order, for the temple, then for his house, first.
When he did right, and did it right, with all his heart, God prospered him.
This is critical to understand, because you have a spiritual enemy, that works through the minds of evil people to destroy you. Setting our lives in order before God, determined to build His kingdom, the church, and our personal homes in order before Him, is critical, for attacks will come. When they do, God will protect and deliver us, if we are sold out for Him.
We see the same principal exhibited in the life of King Uzziah, in 2 Chronicals 26:5 And he sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God: and as long as he sought the LORD, God made him to prosper.
He will prosper you too, if you seek him first, and help to the best of your ability, at whatever level of leadership you find yourself in, to set in order your personal daily and evening sacrifice and devotion to the Lord, with all of your heart. When you do, you will prosper…
Poverty is from the devil and that God wants all Christians prosperous.
“Father, show me my particular mandate before you. How can I serve you, every day, setting in order each morning, and evening my devotion to You, in Your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen.’
