Did you know that you don't have to pursue prosperity? That's right! According to the Bible if you will make God your number one pursuit in life then He will cause prosperity and success to pursue you.

In Deuteronomy 28:1-2, God tells us, "If thou shalt hearken diligently unto the voice of the Lord thy God to observe and to do all his commandments...all these blessings shall come on thee, and overtake thee."

Notice He said the blessings will do the pursuing, not you. They will literally come upon you and overtake you. It makes no difference where you might be, they will find the city or in the field, coming in or going out - they will find you!

When the blessings of God come into your life, they always create prosperity and success. Proverbs 10:22 states, "The blessing of the Lord, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it."

Prosperity belongs to you. It's your "birthright" now that you are a child of the living God. Where so many Christians miss out is when they pursue it instead of allowing it to pursue them.

Jesus said in Matthew 6:33, "But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness and all of these things shall he added unto you."

God wants to know that He is first place in your life and not "things." When you prove to Him that nothing this world has is more important to you than knowing Him, then Satan cannot keep you from being blessed.

The blessings of God will come into your life without ceasing when you show God that you will be faithful to seek Him and to put Him first place above everything else.

Proverbs 28:20 states, "A faithful man shall abound with blessings...."

How would you like to have His blessing abounding in your life? Imagine the marvelous freedom you would enjoy. Well, it can be a reality if you just simply determine that knowing God will be the number one pursuit of your life.

One of the ways that you can show God that He is Number One is found in Proverbs 3:9-10, "Honor the Lord with thy substance and with the first fruits of all thine increase; So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine."

When you are willing to give to God and to His work in the earth, you are showing Him that He is first place. Your money represents your life. Being willing to give it to God is to show Him that He is the most important thing in your life.

Let God know every day through the giving of your substance that nothing is more important than Him and then watch how His blessings will begin to pursue you, come on you and overtake you.

Author Biography

Jerry Savelle
Web site: Jerry Savelle Ministries International
Dr. Jerry Savelle was an average, blue-collar man who was struggling and needed God's help. While he considered himself a "nobody," when he became a believer God told him not to worry about it because He was a master at making champions out of nobodies. God has since taken Dr. Savelle from being a constant quitter to a man who knows how to stand on the Word of God until victory is experienced. Because of the life-changing combination of God's faithfulness and Dr. Savelle's "no quit" attitude, his life is totally different than it was thirty-eight years ago.
