In 3 John 1:2, God unveils the priority of prosperity when He said, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth”. After the salvation of your soul, your prosperity is next in God’s heart.
According to scriptures, our prosperity isn’t just a priority in God’s heart, it’s also the pride of God. Ps 35:27 says, “Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant”. Did you see that? If He takes pleasure in our prosperity, then our prosperity is His pride. We rob God of His pride when we are poor.
