And Abraham was old, and well stricken in age: and the LORD had blessed Abraham in all things (Genesis 24:1).
Notice the verse above didn't say "The Lord shall bless Abraham in all things," instead it says "and the Lord had blessed Abraham in ALL things." It's akin to what the Scriptures say about-- the new creation-- in Ephesians 1:3: "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ." Like Abraham, we are blessed in all things: "So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham." (Galatians 3:9).
The moment you were born again, it became too late for you to be poor, because you're an heir of God, and joint-heir with Christ: "And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; " (Romans 8:17). Prosperity is your birthright 2 Corinthians 8:9 says "For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty might be rich." God's will for you is to enjoy prosperity that comes with riches, happiness, health, peace and fulfilment; that's what it means to be blessed in all things.
The beautiful thing is that you don't have to pray to God to bless you or maketh you prosperous; He's already done it. What you need is to wake up to the realization that you're blessed in all things. You're like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bringeth forth his fruit in his season; your leaf also shall not wither; and whatsoever you do shall prosper (Psalm 1:3). Begin to function in this truth. Refuse poverty and poverty-mentality. Recognize that you have limitless and inexhaustible inheritance in Christ; go ahead and prosper in all your ways!
Dear Father, I honour you for your wonderful blessings in my life, which flow out and touch others around me; I thank you for bringing me into the life of abundance, peace, joy, fulfilment, divine health and protection! Thank you for blessing me in all things, in Jesus' Name. Amen.
