The Scriptures help us understand that God wants His people to succeed. Proverbs 28:25 says, for example, “He who trusts in the Lord will prosper” (NIV). And in 2 Kings 18:7 we see the result of King Hezekiah carefully following the Lord: “And the Lord was with him; he was successful in whatever he undertook.”
One aspect of prospering is financial, but many of God’s people are not succeeding in this regard. They are underfulfilled and overextended.
