“The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” – (John 10:10).

One of the blessings of the life of Believers in Christ is being prosperous. This is a given the moment one accepts Christ as a personal savior- “I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full” ( John 10:10). God has a plan for everyone of his dear children and it is a good plan. As it is written, “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11).

Much as this is a fact Believers must always be on alert for there is that enemy who seeks to steal this prosperous life away from them. “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8). The enemy seeks to deny Believers of their prosperity through dirty schemes including robbing them of their possessions. “The Lord said to Satan, “Where have you come from?” Satan answered the Lord, “From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it” (Job 1:7). And clearly this was not a picnic walk.

To protect our prosperity not only must Believers be on guard but constantly pray for that hedge over them. As it is written, “The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear him, and he delivers them” (Psalm 34:8). And Psalm 91:9-12: “If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,” and you make the Most High your dwelling, no harm will overtake you, no disaster will come near your tent. For he will command his angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.”

Prayer for today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, you who has willed that your children do prosper and take possession of the land, I pray for your blessings over the work of my hands and that because of your love and promise you shield me with your hedge, this I pray in Jesus’ name!

    "And your life will be brighter than the noonday; it’s darkness will be like the morning. And you will feel secure, because there is hope; you will look around and take your rest in security”  (Job 11:17-19.)

    Philosophers and writers have long pointed out that without hope mankind would long be gone. The philosopher Victor Frankly who survived the Holocaust where he lost his entire family found hope was the most important weapon that enabled him come out alive. He wrote, “He who has a why to live for can bear almost any how!”
    
Hope can sustain any of us through the darkest of times. This is what happened to Job when he lost everything he possessed. “Though he slay me, I will hope in him; yet I will argue my ways to his face” (Job 13:15).

    King David when he was being pursued by his enemies never lost hope. “For you have been my hope, sovereign Lord, my confidence since my youth” (Psalm 71:5). The Apostle Paul who faced countless perilous times during his missionary journeys including jail and shipwrecks never lost hope. Writing to the Corinthians he reminded them, “He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us again. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us, as you help us by your prayers” (2 Cor 1:10-11).

    As believers God has given us hope that our lives are not empty and meaningless, like so many others. He has given us the hope to carry us through the lowest of moments. “I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits, and in His word I put my hope” (Psalm 130:5).
    Today, may that hope that you have in Christ sustain you through whatever circumstances you may be facing.

    Prayer for today: Lord Father God of Abraham, maker of heaven and earth, today I pray in the wonderful name of Jesus that the hope I have in you lifts me up and sustains me in all situations as a conquer, in whose name I pray.
