for his name’s sake.

they comfort me.

in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord
Blessed is the man
who walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;

He is like a tree
planted by streams of water
that yields its fruit in its season,
and its leaf does not wither.

Bible Verses about Blessings and Prosperity
When we think of blessings, it’s usually wealth and prosperity that come to mind first. And although God doesn’t promise us great wealth, He does promise to always take care of our physical needs.
In the next group of scriptures, you’ll see an interesting verse from Malachi. It is the only Bible verse where God tells us to try Him. In every other verse, He tells us the opposite. But in this one scripture about tithing, God promises to open the windows of heaven and pour down a blessing if we give our tithe.
It is also true that blessed people, bless people. And this is our call as Christians. To bless those around us in any way we can, financially, emotionally, or spiritually.
Let these Bible verses about prosperity bless you, as you bless the people in your life.
