Love will cause us to Prosper: By Lizzie Ducking- Have you ever wonder why your prayers are not answered or why there is a delay with the answer. You might have done all you know to do but have not gotten any results. You may have given your tithes, spoke His word, decreed a thing, help the poor, prayed for Israel and Jerusalem even rebuked the devil in the name of Jesus but you are still lacking in getting your answer.
When you have done and are continuing to do all these things and nothing seems to happen it can get discouraging but there is still something else that should be considered.
The word said that God is love so the first thing that we need to know is what God is, He is love. If we would put the word love where we see the word God in His word, we can get a deeper insight of Him. For example, John 3:16 says for God so loved the world that He gave his only begotten Son. We can say it like this, love so loved the world that love gave His only begotten Son. Seeing God as love, which He is, brings a deeper insight of Him to us.
It would make sense that all things come to us through love and we should minister in love just like Him. Deuteronomy 8:18 says and you shall remember the Lord your God for it is He who gives you power to get wealth. We can put it this way; love causes us to get wealth. If we would love, we would prosper.
I heard an interesting message about John; he is considered the prophet of love. He spoke of love a lot and when they tried to kill him, they could not. He was boiled in oil but that did not kill him because he was full of love. They put him on the Isle of Patmos to get rid of him but while there, he was given the book of Revelation. Afterward he lived to be well in age, love cannot be destroyed and John was embedded in love so he could not be destroyed.
Loves causes us to prosper. If we would love one another things will change. What if we have done all those other things but does not love, then our work is in vain. God is love and He requires that we love one another and this is the way to get our prayers answered.
What is love? Well, it is not fussy feeling we get or the panting of the heart, those things are emotions and has nothing to do with love. Love is action. God acted when He sent Jesus into the world. Jesus acted when He died on the cross to save us from our sins, so love is action. Love is doing when you really do not want to do. Jesus gave a parable about a man who had two sons. He asked one to do something, that son said that he would but did not, he asked his other son to do it and he said he would not but did it. Jesus asked which of the two did the will of the father, the people said, the one who said he would not but did, and Jesus said, you have spoken correctly. The son that was said he would not do what the father asked was driven by love to do it. Love is a force that propels us and it is that driving force that will enable us to get our prayers answered.
Love gives us power to get wealth. When we operate in love, the anointing is available to us to get wealth. No, we are not to omit tithing, praying of Israel and Jerusalem, giving to the poor, speaking God
