The Ultimate Prosperity Promises

Creative Commons License photo credit: Aqeel SyedShepherd With His Sheep
Psalms 23 is one of the most memorized and famous prosperity scriptures in the Bible.  I first started reciting it when I was around 6 years old.  At that time, I didn’t understand the profound truths and awesome revelation included in these verses. 

Let’s take an in-depth look at these Bible scripture verses and see what Prosperity Promises they contain for each of us.


The Lord Is My Shepherd

 “The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters.”

 First, Psalms 23 is written to those who are sheep of God.  He is their shepherd.  

 The relationship  between Shepherd and Sheep is very close.  The Sheep are dependent on the Shepherd not only for protection, but also for direction.  The Sheep will stay in the same location or place until the Shepherd moves them.  They won’t wander.  Even when the grass is all eaten,  instead of moving, they will stay in the same place and starve before seeking new pastures.

 What does that mean for us?

The Lord orders our steps.  He determines where we are and we will remain there until he leads us to an new place. 


Psalms 23

Green Pastures and Still Waters

 Because we trust and obey, we shall not want.  He has promised to supply all of our wants. (see Phillipians 4:19)  The Lord even makes me (us) to “lay down in green pastures”. 

 No dried up place for God’s sheep.

 Even when we are confused or puzzled or without understanding,  God will take us to “Green Pastures” and make us to lay down.  And we will go because we are his sheep and we hear his voice (John 10:27)

 He also will lead us besides the “Still Waters”. 

 God wants us to find a peaceful place in him.  A place where we can become restful, not restless.  Yes sir, The Shepherd, wants us to be surrounded with Prosperity.   With Plenty of Green Pastures and Still Waters.


A Restored Soul

 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake “

 Our soul represents our mind,  our feelings, our intellect.  God’s people don’t think like unbelievers.  Yep, we are a different lot. Remember, we must trust him for all our decisions.  We must hear his voice and  not follow another.  God has restored our soul.  He has changed our minds.

 God will lead us  in the path of righteousoness because he has a promise to keep.  Promises he made to Abraham and all his heirs.  By faith in Jesus, those promises are ours as well.  And God keeps his promises.  His name (reputation) is on the line.  That why he can’t let his sheep fall.


We Will Fear No Evil

 “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.“

 We will not be afraid, because he has promised to never leave or forsake us. (Hebrews 13:5)


Our Cup Runneth Over

“Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.”

Even in the midst of those who mean us harm, we can be comfortable and assured that God is with us..  God has promised us favor from the top of our head to the bottom of our feet..  The Blessings of the Lord will overflow.

 A Believer’s  Assurance  of Prosperity  

 “Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.”  

 We are confident that God’s promises of goodness and mercy will remain with us all the days of our lives.  Therefore we know that we will dwell with him forever.

WOW, These are Great Prosperity Promises!

    An inspiring psalm. It never fails when you understand what God is saying to you. God bless you for this wonderful revelation. It is one of the psalms I started confessing since I was, I believe 5years with my family.

  10. Tammy on January 11th, 2011 11:49 am

    This truly has been a tool God has touched me with today. One reason is that this is one of the first scriptures I learned as a child, and He has turned “milk” into “meat”. Thank you.

  11. Jecinta on March 14th, 2011 12:34 pm

    Explosive, this is Ps: 23- broken down.

    Amen! If only God’s people will learn to hear His voice, and follow out of love and awe. Then, we could truly find ultimate prosperity.

    😀 God’s promises broken down and well understood for this day we are living in, it’s good to know that his word is eternal and the same promise he made for me, he has made for my children and grandchildren!

  22. frederick ntiri on December 26th, 2011 1:35 am

    Indeed this verse is inspiring and thank you for the way and many you broke it down. May the favour of the Lord be with us now and forever more. Amen

  23. Jim van Ommen on March 6th, 2012 5:11 am

    I have no problem with prosperity theology provided of course you have your currency right.
    One that is at least moth and rust proof. Gold would come close, but Gold of obedience would have to top the lot. That’s the challenge !

  24. Brigette on April 13th, 2012 2:04 am

    Truly a blessing! 😛

  25. Janelle on May 29th, 2012 7:35 pm

  29. Jane on July 31st, 2012 11:01 am

    Thank you. I’d never looked at the 23rd Psalm like this before. As I read through your article I felt the peace it brought to my soul. What a great reminder for us to rest in the Lord and to let go of our concerns.

  30. Linda on August 28th, 2012 6:37 pm

    😀 I agree with Jane. I never looked at the 23rd Psalm that way. It is truly blessed my soul. Thanks for the explaining to the point that even a first grader would understand. Be blessed 😀

  31. Moyo on November 21st, 2012 3:55 pm

    Great revelation on prosperity. Ultimately we see God’s desire to freely give and bless His people.

    Although I read the bible almost daily and pray on a daily basis I really got a little depressed today when I got car trouble. So i immediately started searching for prosperity scriptures and found this website. After reading Psalm 23 and the promises of this Psalm it gave me peace and reminded me of God’s love and promises to take care of my needs. I know that God does care and he will do for me as he promised. Thank you!

    This is an awesome way of clarifying God’s promises to take care of His children and take care of them in a peaceful, loving and abundant manner. I am even more aware that as I put my faith in that One Power – all my needs are being met always.

  53. Minister Billy on November 6th, 2015 4:38 pm

    Today the Holy Spirit told me that it is time to release the drawn back bow string and begin the work of The Lord. I was lead to stand on and internalize God’s promises and support for sustenance to fight and finish the battle. This is the first site He lead me to. It is the prayer I have recited and taught my children from birth. It will be hence for my fight song, or my fight Psalm if you will. And I know that God has truly fulfilled each line in my life. So I will now answer the call and Fight the Good Fight from a position of Victory, until the day Jesus returns to finish it for good. Have a Super Blessed Day. Evangelist, Minister Billy Hupp Sr.
    I will see you and yes I do mean you in Heaven!
