Peace, Power, and Prosperity are the themes for our 19th Annual Church Convention. I can’t believe it’s been 19 years since my family started this ministry here in America, and it has been a great journey. It’s taught me so much spiritually, personally and professionally.
It’s not easy building an organization, let alone sustaining it for 19 years. That’s who we are as a family though, we build. The week was filled with ministrations from pastors that came from all over. All contributing to the powerful message of Peace, Power, and Prosperity.
“And he saith unto them, Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith? Then he arose, and rebuked the winds and the sea; and there was a great calm.”
I touched on this briefly in my post about serenity. The essence of peace is in the midst of chaos. Jesus and his disciples were going through a great storm and were seeing their life flash before their eyes. They were so afraid. Then the Master spoke to them and asked, “Why are ye fearful, O ye of little faith?”
What this tells us is that there is one requirement for us to have peace; we must be faithful. Faith and fear can not reside together, and where there is fear, there is no rest. In order for us to achieve peace, we must believe it’s already ours, even in the midst of the violent storms in our lives.
Power has been negatively connotated in every example I have seen it used in. But there are many different kinds of power. There’s spiritual power, economic power, political power, and physical power.
In all of the examples of power that I can choose, I want to look at this through the lens of a physicist. Power “is the rate at which work is done or at which energy is produced…” We need the power to be productive. We need the power to work. We need the power to have light. We need the power to produce energy.
All of these things grant us the ability to influence the people and places around us. Having this power or this influence can greatly dictate how much energy or effort is needed for us to achieve our desired output.
“and observe what the LORD your God requires: Walk in obedience to him, and keep his decrees and commands, his laws and regulations, as written in the Law of Moses. Do this so that you may prosper in all you do and wherever you go”
1 Kings 2:3
We must prosper. In whatever we do, and wherever we go. Prosperity is much more than just financial success. Prosperity in being healthy and living a long life. Prosperity is having a loving family, and building one. Prosperity means so much to me that it’s a driving force in my daily motivations.
You shouldn’t just want to be good, but to be prosperous. That means there is overflow. You are going above and beyond. You’re excelling and accelerating. This becomes so easy when we just trust and obey.
I wish you were all there to witness what happened this week, but I know it for a fact, that it’s all available for you to take and embrace. It’s written in the word. It’s been established by law. Go forth and get your peace, power, and prosperity.
