The Bible is full of scriptures about your financial increase, wealth, and prosperity. If you’re praying for a financial breakthrough, there’s no better place to turn than to God’s wisdom, spelled out in His Word.

God’s Word is life—life to our bodies, life to our spirit, life to our relationships, and life to our finances.

As believers, as we read, memorize, and think about God’s Word concerning money we’ll find every answer we need within its pages.

Here are powerful 51 Bible verses about wealth and prosperity you can meditate on daily to gain victory in your finances.

What does the Bible say about wealth and prosperity?

The Bible does not condemn wealth, nor should we condemn it. We should never defend poverty as a path to righteousness.

The Bible is full of heroes of faith from all walks of life. God uses them according to their unique calling and purpose, not their account balance in the bank. Proverbs 22: 2 says: “The rich and the poor have one thing in common: God is the Creator of all.”

The problem here is not poor or rich, but the attitude towards wealth and prosperity. The Lord takes care of that.

Regardless of our worth, we all have a responsibility to be the kind and faithful stewards God has given us. Remember, we will give an account of whatever God entrusted in our hands including wealth and prosperity.
