Enough for Every Good Work

Gloria Copeland
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you; that ye, always having all sufficiency in all things, may abound to every good work.

When Ken and I were first learning to walk in faith for prosperity, about 30 years ago, we didn’t know very much of God’s Word yet. We received our revelation piece by piece. Every time we’d learn something new, we’d put it into practice.

Actually, it’s much easier for us now to walk in prosperity than it was back then. Today, we have to believe for millions of dollars just to pay our tv bills. But that’s not nearly as challenging as it was to believe God back then for food on the table. During those days I often had to pray in the spirit just to pay my way out at the grocery store. That was the hardest time of all because we were just learning.

You have to grow in these things. If you’re just now hearing that God wants you to prosper, you probably won’t be able to get a million dollars in cash by this time next week.

Why? Because your faith isn’t up to that yet. What you need to do is start right where you are. Start believing God for rent money. Start believing God to buy groceries. Start believing and then increase.

That’s what we did. We just kept growing. We kept listening to God and walking in the faith that we had, and it grew bigger. And we kept tithing and giving!

What’s important is to start now. Don’t wait until next month. If you want a change, make a change. Start believing God for the things you need today. Start thanking Him for them. Tell the devil you’re out from under his curse. Grab hold of the Word of God and don’t let go.

If you’ll do that and stay with it, and continue to do what God tells you, you’ll eventually have a surplus of prosperity so that not only can you pay your bills, but you can also have the capacity to give into every good work!

Speak the Word
