The Lord our Provider

Provision and Prosperity Promises

Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers 3 John 2 

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success
Joshua 1:8 (Yes, this is Old Covenant. However the principal of feeding on God's Word, thinking on His truth, will still lead us into good success. When we feed on His Word it brings wisdom and guidance and leads us into prosperous living. It is not following some code or Law, or performance based blessing. It is feeding on His Word. It is relationship.)

Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. Luke 6:38a KJV

Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” Luke 6:38 NKJV
Grace supplies. He has already given to us His Son. So we can now be givers. Blessed to be a blessing. When we give out of good motive to advance God's kingdom (plan, agenda) we will receive overflowing blessings in return. Favor, blessings, miracles, financial blessings, open doors, promotions. God will give back to us in many, many ways.

And let us not grow weary while doing good, for in due season we shall reap if we do not lose heart. 
Galatians 6:9 NKJV
And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:19 AMP It is based on His rich supply not our own.

For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich. 2 Corinthians 8:9 NKJV
Grace supplied our wealth and provision based on His offering of Himself. Not on our merits. Just as He took our sin and sickness and exchanged it for His perfect righteousness and health, He took our lack, insufficiency, debt, and poverty and exchanged it for His perfect prosperity. 

[Remember] this: he who sows sparingly and grudgingly will also reap sparingly and grudgingly, and he who sows generously that blessings may come to someone] will also reap generously and with blessings. Let each one [give] as he has made up his own mind and purposed in his heart, not reluctantly or sorrowfully or under compulsion, for God loves (He takes pleasure in, prizes above other things, and is unwilling to abandon or to do without) a cheerful (joyous, “prompt to do it”) giver [whose heart is in his giving]. 2 Corinthians 9:6-7
 He loves a cheerful giver who gives as the Spirit leads. Not as need arises or out of compulsion based on outward pressure from religion or controlling leadership.
And God is able to make all grace (every favor and earthly blessing) come to you in abundance, so that you may always and under all circumstances and whatever the need be self-sufficient [possessing enough to require no aid or support and furnished in abundance for every good work and charitable donation]. 2 Corinthians 9:8 
This is the true Bible definition of Bible prosperity. This is the perfect picture of His grace (unearned love and favor) supplying His people. More than enough to meet our obligations and "bills". With more than enough to supply to good works as the Spirit leads.
