Uzziah was sixteen years old when he became king, and he reigned fifty-two years in Jerusalem. And he did what was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father Amaziah had done. He sought God in the days of Zechariah, who had understanding in the visions of God; and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him prosper.
II Chronicles 26:3‭-‬5

Contrary to the popular misconception and deception in our day that those who choose to live a godly and righteous life will be poor, suffer and die in abject poverty. It remains an eternal truth and principle which can never change in any age or generation that prosperity is God’s gift to His children. True and enduring prosperity comes from God and flows to His own who seeks His face wholeheartedly.

God by nature is not committed to blessing the indolent and rewarding the unfaithful with His blessings. His power and grace to prosper in life and remain prosperous are given to everyone who dares to know Him intimately, walk before Him faithfully and serve Him wholeheartedly without compromising their conviction. God does not suffer anyone to seek His face in vain.

If you likewise will pursue God to know Him personally and intimately and you will give yourself to serve Him with a perfect heart and a willing mind. If you will eschew wickedness and corruption but uphold integrity with righteousness, God will bless you abundantly and make you exceedingly prosperous wherever you go and in whatever you do.

Lasting prosperity is children’s bread which God will not give to the dogs but exclusively reserved for the righteous at the time He had appointed for them. May the LORD God help you to make Him your priority in all your pursuits in life and He will reward you with His everlasting blessings here on earth and hereafter in heaven. Good morning and happy Lord’s Day.

Your brother,
