You can have it all, why because you are worth it









You can have it all. You always hear that we can't have it all. You can't have your cake and eat it, and have you noticed that whenever a question is asked, would you marry a man who was young and poor or old and rich? We always seem to be faced with one or the other, why can't we marry a man or a woman who was young, rich and beautiful, beautiful in looks as well as ways. In the old testament, God constantly talked about prosperity and richness.
Deuteronomy 8:18 But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God: for it is he that giveth theee power to get wealthy, that he may establish his convenant which he swore unto thy fathers, as it is this day.
Joshua 1:8 This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth, but thou shall mediate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein for then thous shalt make thy way prosperous and then thou shal have good success.
Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich and he addeth no sorrow with it.
In the new testament, Jesus also continued the conversation of prosperity.
John 10:10 The theif cometh not, but for to steal and kill and to destroy: I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly.
So when I looked up the words, abundant and prosperity in the dictionary. Abundance means a quantity that is more than enough, plenty. Abundant means more that enough, plentiful, having plenty of something, rich.
Prosperous means financially successful. When God and Jesus talked about abundance and prosperity, meaning that the person, was abundant in all areas of their lives, so they would have an abundant relationship with their spouses and they would have abundant relationship with their children and they would have abundance in their bank accounts, so they would not have to want for anything. They would have abundant health, a new house, lots of clothes, shoes, or whatever they wanted. They would be blessed with material wealth and well as spiritual wealth. A person would live a wholesome life, they have a sound mind, sound body, sound wealth and sound health, nothing missing, nothing lacking. They should be whole. They should have peace, they should have Shalom, which is a Hebrew word, which is more that just peace, what every they need they should have, deliverance, righteousness, prosperity, health, wealth, happiness, joy.
So anyone who tells you that money doesn't not make you happy, they are ususally people who have money, in that case you should answere, 'you give me all your money', you would soon see, how they would react. Proverty is a miserable existence, it is horrible, boring, dull, painful, unbearable. Poverty leads to illness, sickness, it destroy marriages, the family. We have to bring heaven on earth. We all know that we will eventually leave this mortal realm, but while you are living here, you want to live a full, abundant, prosperous, success, rich and plentiful life. Say out it loud, 'I am rich', 'I am a billionaire' and confess this to yourself that you are a billionaire and imaging your billionaire lifestyle, your fabulous wedding, your gorgeous husband or wife, your beautiful children, your houses in the Hamptons and Caribbean, your yatchs in Monte Carlo, shopping trips to Paris, going to fashion shows in Milan, skiing in Switzerland or Aspen, USA. and when all that money is manifested in your life, help other people to have the wealthy lifestyle also, building schools, universities, and hospitals, praising in God's name. As Jesus said in Matthew 6:33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God: and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. That can be anything from growing your hair long, buying a house, appying for a job, writing first your novel or whatever you choose to do. The more you discuss and ask advice, you start to get wisdom and wisdom saves a whole lot of time and energy. Some of us come from backgrounds, where our family like toil and hardship, if it is not hard, it is not good, but when it is hard and prolonging, it is a waste of time and energy. Life is too just short. You want to live a full, live it loud and large! travel the world. Don't let anyone tell you, that you shouldn't have it, or it can't be done, or it is impossible. Mark 10:27....With men, it is impossible, but not with God: for with God all things are possible. The God we serve, likes big things, he loves expansion, growth, development, he loves variety, look at the different races of people, different trees, flowers, plants, herbs, animals, he likes to share in our dreams, he likes to be part of our plans. He likes to listen to our ideas, but religion makes us put him in the distance future, remote, far off, not relevant to our lives now, but having a relationship with God, he is in the present, the now. So if you want to get the car, or fly that plane, ask God to how to do it and he will guide you. He will grant you favour and bless you, so that your life will be rich beyond your wildest dreams.
So make your vision boards and stick pictures of your husband, your wife, your children, your houses, gardens, yatches, aeroplanes, money, your businesses.
Habakkuk 2:2-3 And the Lord answered me and said: Write the vision and make it plain upon tables, that he may run that readeth and for the vision is yet for an appointed time , but at the end, it shall speak and not lie: though it tarry, wait for it; because it will surely come, it will not tarry. Speak to your vision board, talk to your vision, it, think it, surround yourself with like minded people and call your vision into being.
Romans 4:17b And calleth those things which be not as though they were. Ask believe and receive and thank God for your husband/wife, children, houses, properties, money, riches, bank accounts overflowing with so much money that the bank has to ask you to borrow money.
Ephesians 3:20 Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that I ask or think, according to the power that worketh in me.

Felicity, Ithough I'm leary of some of the tenets of the prosperity gospel, I do believe in positive confession. I really enjoy your posts. They are very inspiring. Thanks!

Felicity said...

Thank you very much Pirouette, thank you for saying that. I have a vision board myself, and the more you focus on something you want, the more, it comes to pass, what I tried to do is use our every day situations and use back scriptures to help me.

Pirouette said...

So, have the things you've been believing for come to pass yet?

Felicity said...

Yes, I have and I am believing God for more things and you have to act as those you have got your things already.

Felicity, a wonderful declaration of the abundance we possess, and our God-given power to have, do, and be whatever we wish to have, do and be.

God's greatest promises become our greatest stumbling block: His promises are just too good to be true.

But why would God promise His children a small blessing when a great one can just as easily be theirs to have?

What would that say about our Father/God?

I like they way you can easily fish into the Bible and find versus that you are looking for. I may have gron older in age but i am still a very young child in terms of christianity. I am praying with Psalms 139 becuz i think i am so lost right now i really need God in my life and need to stop doing everything myself and let Jesus take the wheel. I agrre with your post but right now my main concern is trying to establish the relationship i lack with God.


Btw, ur daughters name is Adeyola ? Isn't that Nigerian ?

Felicity said...

Black women blow your trumpet
Nice to hear from you, thank you for your kind words.
The First Domino, God is awesome and I hope that more people could really see how awesome he is.
Suesue, I am still a baby in Christinity myself and there is so much to learn and I have not touched the surface yet. You are right Ayodele is a Nigerian name. Yoruba, meaning God had come home.
