Prayer Challenge

I want to ask you to say this prayer out loud, if possible.

“I belong to God. I am a holy vessel because I have the Holy Spirit of the Living God. The Lord of Heaven and earth has said to me; “I declare you holy!”. I commit to start believing what He says. I AM HOLY! Remind me daily, Spirit of the Living God, to treat myself as holy, open my eyes to every scheme of The Enemy to treat me as if I'm not. You, God, are Holy. Your word is the truth. This day Father, I chose to believe you! I ask this in the mighty name of your son Jesus Christ, who died on a cross for me so that I could be a coheir to the kingdom of God. Amen”

Verse of the Week - Matthew 6:21 - January 12, 2015

I had a personal revelation about "treasures."

For months, the Lord kept whispering to me,"I will prosper you." I believed the words, but applied my own understanding to the words. 

I kept waiting for a financial upsurge, a surge in blog page views, or a period of prosperity to begin. However, the words," I will prosper you." do not just apply to earthly treasures.

I finally realized that my prosperity was spiritual, not financial. Understanding lit up the inside of my brain like a light bulb. My focus had been on the material, financial meaning of prosper, but the Biblical use of prosper does not just mean financial.

The word prosper, in Hebrew, has many shades of meaning. According to Strong's Exhaustive Concordance, the original word for prosper is tsalach, or tsaleach. This is what I read:
a primitive root; to push forward, in various senses (literal or figurative, transitive or intransitive) -- break out, come (mightily), go over, be good, be meet, be profitable, (cause to, effect, make to, send) prosper (-ity, -ous, - ously).
My spiritual relationship has pushed forward tremendously. The effect of my spiritual growth has been an increase in my work for the Lord, with a greater understanding of his plan for me. Today, the more I treasure the Lord, the more my heart will be there. Finances are not where I want my heart to be.
