Disciple: “What must I do to be prosperous?”
God: “Seek me!”
The Bible tells us the story of Uzziah, the King of Judah who was sixteen years old when he was made king. Uzziah reigned for fifty two years and in the early days of his reign, Uzziah did right in the eyes of the Lord and he sought the God and as long as he sought the Lord, God made him prosper (2 Chronicles 26:5).
Points to ponder:
Wanna be prosperous? Seek the Lord God and his kingdom first, and all other things (that tend to make you prosperous) will be added unto you (Matthew 6:33). Would you consider yourself as prosperous? In other words, “are you seeking him?”.
2 Chronicles 26:3-5 (KJV)
3 Sixteen years old was Uzziah when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and two years in Jerusalem. His mother’s name also was Jecoliah of Jerusalem.
4 And he did that which was right in the sight of the Lord, according to all that his father Amaziah did.
5 And 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 to prosper.
