What “There” Looks Like
– What God’s idea of prosperity and blessing are for you
In this step we discover what true blessing and prosperity look like in the lives of believers. Of course, the greatest blessing in scripture is to be called a friend of God. We look into the definition of blessing given by God in His law in Deuteronomy 28:1-14. We will consider the teachings of Jesus on blessing, and in particular the parable of the talents how this story speaks to us today. We will look deeply into the process of restoration promised in several places throughout the scriptures. We find that God is a Healer, a Protector, a Deliverer, and the giver of the greatest gift, eternal life. We will also see that those that are blessed by God learn to give away what they have to bless others and to give any glory or honor they have back to God in heartfelt thanksgiving.
