Do you fear God? I am sure that you do, that is why you read the word of God daily. If you fear God, David showed you in Psalm 25 the blessings of fearing God,

Who is the man that fears the Lord?
Him shall He teach in the way He chooses.
He himself shall dwell in prosperity,
And his descendants shall inherit the earth.
(Psalm 25.12–13) 

Fear God and let Him take care of your life, for if you fear Him, He will teach you in the way that He chooses for your life. It will be the best way for you, because He knows you and your capabilities, and He has tailored you for that very way of life.

Also, you shall dwell in prosperity and your descendants shall inherit the Earth.

    • Well, I used to define earthly prosperity as having access to hot water, but I am stuck in Abilene, Texas in a motel where the cold water in the shower does not work, and I took a burning hot shower.

      Anyway, the prosperity of which David speaks, even of earthly prosperity, I believe can be defined as follows:

      “Blessed are the meek, For they shall inherit the earth” (Matt 5.5).

      And I believe that passage, along with Psalm 25, can be defined in this way,

      “Assuredly, I say to you, there is no one who has left house or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or lands, for My sake and the gospel’s, who shall not receive a hundredfold now in this time—houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and lands, with persecutions—and in the age to come, eternal life” (Mark 10.29–30).

      “Therefore let no one boast in men. For all things are yours: whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas, or the world or life or death, or things present or things to come—all are yours. And you are Christ’s, and Christ is God’s” (1Co 3.21–23).
