Topic: EMPOWERMENT FOR KINGDOM PROSPERITY.
“Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you”. Matthew 6:31-33
God has ordained you for financial prosperity. He did not ordain any of His children to be poor. Deuteronomy 8:18, 2 Corinthians 8:9. Therefore He is ever mindful of His covenant. Jeremiah 33:20-25. 3John 2.
FOUNDATIONS OF KINGDOM PROSPERITY
1. Kingdom Stewardship. Kingdom prosperity is powered by kingdom stewardship. The price of being poor is more costly than the price of being rich. When you are part of God, God become part of your life. You are entitled to blessings when you are in covenant with God.

3. Financial kingdom stewardship: Using your finance to work for God. You must contribute to the house of God for you to be blessed. 1Choronicles 29:1-9.
