God not only wants each believer to succeed but He has given us the instruction on how we can be successful. The Holy Bible (God's Holy Word) is filled with exhortations and positive directions for our success. If you study the Holy Bible with an open mind, an open heart and a desire to understand, you can easily see that throughout the history of God's relationship with man His desire for His believers is that they live life with abundance, that they succeed in their endeavors and that they draw closer to Him. In John 10:10 (Amplified) Jesus states "The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows)."
Some people believe that the study of biblical prosperity principles is a shameful study. Others have based their entire ministry on the pursuit of prosperity. Some promote the idea that teaching the Bible, the Holy Scripture, as a guide to earthly prosperity, is wrong. People with this point of view are, in my humble opinion, not well informed and have missed the point. The study of biblical prosperity principles (biblical success) is necessary and a balanced view is essential.
These biblical principles are indeed a major point in Christian living. First, let's not confuse material wealth with prosperity. There is no shame in being wealthy (it is a pretty nice predicament.) Biblical prosperity principles teach us to be healthy, wealthy and wise. They teach us that success is not measured by material wealth but by a balance between the physical being and the spiritual being.
