How do you define "prosperity?"

How do you define "prosperity?" Is it a well-diversified portfolio of assets? Is it money in the bank? Is it the relationships you have and maintain? Or is it something else entirely? When God brought the Israelites out of Egypt, He gave them wealth beyond imagination overnight. In a few hours, they went from being slaves to some of the richest people of the day simply by asking. But that was only part of God's promise to them. The tragic story follows God's chosen people who could not trust God's steadfast love. They had left Egypt, but Egypt had not left them. When the going got tough, their first response was often to look back at what they had when they were slaves instead of looking forward to what God had for them. It's the same for us today, sadly. We often trust more in what our eyes see, our minds reason or our hearts feel rather than the truth of God's Word. In that way, we continue living and operating in a slave mentality. The good news is that God still wants to drive the Egyptians out of you for good.
