And having food and clothing, with these we shall be content. 1 Timothy 6:8(NKJV)
The soul of a lazy man desires, and has nothing;
But the soul of the diligent shall be made rich.
Not that I speak in regard to need, for I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content: I know how to be abased, and I know how to abound. Everywhere and in all things I have learned both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. Philippians 4:11-12(NKJV)
If they obey and serve Him,
They shall spend their days in prosperity,
And their years in pleasures.
Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
Cease from anger, and forsake wrath;
Do not fret—it only causes harm. Psalm 37:7-8(NKJV)

And he who has it will abide in satisfaction;
He will not be visited with evil. Proverbs 19:23(NKJV)

That we may rejoice and be glad all our days! Psalm 90:14(NKJV)

And let your soul delight itself in abundance. Isaiah 55:2(NKJV)
