Deu 29:9 "Therefore keep the words of this covenant, and do them, that you may prosper in all that you do."

Bible tells us that when a person walks according to the word of God, and does accordingly, prosperity comes in his/her life. God called Abraham to leave his country and go to Canaan. He had no idea what challenges he would have to face or how he would survive in a new country. But what sustained him and made him to prosper in that new country was nothing but his faith in God and in trusting His word. Whatever God spoke to him, he faithfully followed and God fulfilled His word. God gave him protection, and gave him the means to survive. More than that He prospered him greatly and made him great in that new nation which he called home.

Joseph was the great grandson of Abraham. He was sold to Egypt and was brought in that new land as a slave. Basically slaves have no freedom or prospects for a better life. But in that land where he came as a slave, God exalted him to become the ruler of Egypt. The reason for that was only that he feared God and walked in His ways. Naturally speaking, Joseph did not have any chance to expect a good life or to excel in his life, but he excelled above all the men of Egypt because God was with him.

David was a shepherd boy who might never have thought of becoming king of Israel. But because he loved the Lord with all his heart, God exalted him and made him king. There were obstacles, challenges, threats, tears and so many problems that he had to face but none of those could stop him from becoming king. The reason was again the same that David feared God and walked in the ways of God that made him a prosperous man.

If you want to see prosperity in your life, if you want to excel in your life, if you want to see your dreams coming true, you need to walk in the ways of God.

When Joshua took charge of the leadership of Israel, God spoke to him and said the same thing (Josh 1:7-8), "Only be strong and very courageous, that you may observe to do according to all the law which Moses My servant commanded you; do not turn from it to the right hand or to the left, that you may prosper wherever you go. This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success."

Are you interested in success? Give first place to God and He will lift you up. He will exalt you before others beyond your imagination and beyond your expectation. The prosperity for a child of God does not depend upon economy whether good or bad or on circumstances. But prosperity comes from the mighty hands of God who made heaven and earth. All the diamonds of this world is His and also gold and silver is His. That is the reason why Jesus said not to worry about food and cloths but to seek first the kingdom of God so that all those things could be added unto you. We read in Mat 6:33, "But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you."

Are you worried about your life today? Seek the Lord first and He will prosper you. He will make you blessed.

Testimony of Nazeela Beevi - Part 1

My name is Nazeela beevi. I am from a small village called Karinganoor which is in Kollam (Quilon) District, Kerala, India. My father's name is Abdul Rehman Moulvi. About ten years ago my father was working as chief Emam (Muslim Priest) over many Emams who used to give religious speeches.

While my father was serving in many mosques he came to know through medical science that he will not have any kids. But my father took many vows, generously gave offerings and waited for result. He went to Mecca for haj and became a Hajji and said to Allah like this, "Allah, if you give me a child and even if the child is a girl I will dedicate her and give her as an offering to the Mosque for your work. Usually Muslims offer only boy child and do not offer their girl child or dedicate her for the work of Mosque because Quran, the scripture of Muslims says that girls should not go outside of their houses showing their beauty. This type of a law was given by Mohammad nabi in Quran.

Because my father was a person who loved to obey every law of Quran as it is written in the Quran, he brought me up in the strict rules of Quran. From three years of my life my father would take me to the mosque, would make me to do the works of the mosque and make me to sleep in the mosque itself. My days were spent in mosque itself. Only for a little time that also rarely I would go to home with my father.

When my father got transferred he left me in the same mosque with the new Emam to do the work of Mosque. At this time alone I went to school for studies. After school I would return to the Mosque. Like this I lived in Mosque until the age of puberty.

When I reached the age of puberty, I was brought to my home and was made to sit in my home and learn Quran and follow the laws of Quran. According to the Quran a child should start following the laws of Quran when he/she is seven years old. So from the age of seven my father strictly taught me to pray five times in a day, fast in days of Ramzaan, recite Quran loudly and give alms in the days of sacrifice. From the seventh year of my life I did everything accordingly until my 16th year. From my 7th year I wore covered dress (parda).

When I went to school my father would put an extra black cloth on my face and covered my face. The reason behind it was that if the gentiles look at me, I would become cursed or unholy because I am a child offered to Allah and an offered child should not have any defect. In the Old Testament it is written that sacrificial things should not be defective. You can see that several of these laws of Old testament are also in Quran. So my father brought me up in the strict rules of Islam. In my black covering there were only two small net opening to see outside. My hands were covered with black gloves and legs with black socks. I would go to school wearing all these black dresses as a black figure. If I had to go outside, I would go wearing this type of dress. There was no freedom to go to the neighborhood. No freedom to mingle with people of other religions. If close relatives came in the house, I could only speak a little bit with them. I have three young brothers but I did not have much freedom to carry them, to have fun with them or to fondle them. Only for a few moments I was allowed to do that. All the other times I should spend time with Quran in my room. Like this I spent sixteen years of my life in a room of my home separated from others. I did not have the knowledge to speak a word wisely among four people who come together. Even if I want to mingle with such company, I did not have the freedom to go among them. I grew up in this type of Muslim home. I have taken great pains to follow the Islamic Law and I had completely dedicated myself for this purpose. But when I was 14 years old a thought came into my mind that I do not have any freedom to go around, have no freedom to wear the dresses which I liked, have no freedom to play or laugh as I wished, but always being with Quran and praising Allah and living alone in my room, "When I die and go what would be my reward?"
