Topic: 4 Pillars Upon Which True Prosperity Is Built
Preacher: Pastor Poju Oyemade
In the area of the work of our hands, God has given us exceeding great and precious promises, through which He would want us to partake in His Divinity.
The first pillar of true prosperity is your work ethic; these are the set of values you bring to the workplace, your inner perception of the work, and what the work really is. Many people think work is a necessary burden you bear in order to earn wages or make money so they can enjoy the real things of life; they see work as a burden, while they consider pleasure and entertainment as real life, but the truth is WORK IS LIFE. The real joy of living should be found in your workplace. Your work Ethic is the attitude you have to work.
Work is spiritual. Work occurs when the Holy Spirit supplies you with ideas and thoughts on how to carry out tasks, such that you experience multiplication and prosperity by the implementation of these thoughts. Living in a mansion or driving great cars can’t give you the satisfaction that comes from receiving and implementing ideas that leads to productive work.
Galatians 6: 3-5 “For if a man thinks himself to be something when he is nothing, he deceiveth himself. But let every man prove his own work, and then shall he have rejoicing in himself alone, and not in another. For every man shall bear his own burden.”
