5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding;

7 Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and depart from evil.Prov3:5-7

God teaches us how to make profit

12 Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the LORD blessed him.

19 If you are willing and obedient, You shall eat the good of the land.
18 “And you shall remember the LORD your God, for it is He who gives you power to get wealth, that He may establish His covenant which He swore to your fathers, as it is this day.Duet8:18
Confessing and acting on bring prosperity

6 God sets the solitary in families; He brings out those who are bound into prosperity; But the rebellious dwell in a dry land. Ps68:6
If you have suffered adversity, know that it is a stepping stone to prosperity. Your change is coming.
In the day of prosperity be joyful, But in the day of adversity consider: Surely God has appointed the one as well as the other, So that man can find out nothing that will come after him.
When fools prosper it digs their grave because it goes into their heads.
For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them.
The Presence of God brings prosperity

It is not just what you give that matters but your attitude in giving maters. Give cheerfully, hopefully and generously.
38 Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”
The Cheerful Giver
6 But this I say: He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.
7 So let each one give as he purposes in his heart, not grudgingly or of necessity; for God loves a cheerful giver.
8 And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always having all sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.
9 As it is written: ” He has dispersed abroad, He has given to the poor; His righteousness endures forever.”
10 Now may He who supplies seed to the sower, and bread for food, supply and multiply the seed you have sown and increase the fruits of your righteousness,
11 while you are enriched in everything for all liberality, which causes thanksgiving through us to God.
9 For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though He was rich, yet for your sakes He became poor, that you through His poverty might become rich.
