TEXT: Zechariah 1:15-21

MEMORY VERSE:*”Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of His servant.” {Psalms 35:27}

MESSAGE:*The power to do, to get and to achieve whatever any human might be desirous or longing to have in life is sufficient with God and in God. That’s why one of His name is Jehovah El-Shaddai- meaning “The All Sufficient God”. Patriarch Abraham called Him Jehovah Jireh. Meaning, “The Lord that has more than enough to provide”. This name occurred on a mountain in the land of Moriah when God demonstrated Himself as “The All Sufficient- the more than enough God to Abraham while he was about using Isaac- the only sacrificial lamb he had for sacrifice there on an altar-{Genesis 22:7-14}. No matter how influenced or wealthy any man might be, all he has is limited. But, the Almighty God, the Creator, the Maker and the Supreme Inventor of all is the only one who is not limited in His riches and in His possesions. Unfortunately, this is one established fact many who desire to have financial or other forms of blessings in life are neglecting. Many think getting rich, or getting it in life is just by power or by too much of struggle. No! Many persons in life are choosing dubious, crooked or evil ways to acquire riches or get things done. Just because they are not ready to discipline themselves to walking in the ways of God. Which is the best pathway to financial or material dominion as God established for man in Genesis 1:26-28. While delivering the messages of the big proposed projects God was about coming down to do in the ministry of Zechariah, perhaps maybe when he {the angel} perceived his doubtful thoughts on how such mighty proposed projects could be actualized, the sent angel told Zechariah in verse six of fourth chapter of Zechariah’s book that, ‘those mentioned projects cannot be achieved by might or by power of any human, but by the Spirit of God Himself. In Genesis 14th, from verse 17th, Bible reveals to us that Abraham was so rich to the extent that he rejected gifts given to him by a whole nation and their president. Why? The reason is because God Almighty, the Jehovah El-Shaddai, Jehovah Jireh has His wealth storehouse built at Abraham’s domains. So, Abraham walked and lived all his life in financial dominion. You can fix that understanding out in God’s statement to Abraham in Genesis 15th, the immediate chapter to that Genesis 14th where Abraham bragged of his riches: There, God boasted that He is the only one who can exceedingly reward Abraham, not man, not any president, nor even a whole nation. Beloved, hear this fact, the only prosperity that can be peaceful and joyfully ever-flowing without any devilish condition or sorrow attached in life is in God. Today’s memory verse signifies that God has pleasure in seeing His people prosper. All today’s quoted scriptures- the memory verse, 16th and 17th verses of first chapter of Zechariah and others outlined out many points in which if a man strictly obey, and follows would automatically slide that fellow into God’s sponsors prosperity. We shall leave no stone unturned to point out all these to you from the next series of this same topic. Till then, shalom!
Standing on the authority in the name of Jesus, may God’s grace for prosperity search you out, and pick you as a candidate for an amazing prosperity. Amen!!
