“ But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you. “.

Financial prosperity is when we can buy what we need at anytime we want it.Again it is only “what we need” and not “what we want”. Physical prosperity is when we can do things in our life, such as walking, singing travelling etc. and we are not experiencing fatigue or sickness brought by too much work or stress in thinking. When we are not stress and have time for relaxation and fun. Spiritual prosperity is if we have time dedicated for the Lord for praise and worship and time to commune with the Lord. That is a specific time and not just a 10 minutes before sleeping.
