It gives Him pleasure

Psa.35:27b.  Let the LORD be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant.
This word Prosperity in the Hebrew is: Shalowm, Shaw-lome'; or  Shalom, Shaw-lome'; which  has several meanings such as (1) safe, (2) well, (3) happy, (4) friendly, (5) welfare, (6) good health, (7) peace, (8) favor, (9) rest, (10) salute, welfare,
Hear me saints of God!

The enemy / Satan knows quite well that God hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servants; he (Satan) has methodically worked his perverted / twisted plan into the church as he’s gotten Religious Leaders to primarily focus on the financial aspect of prosperity. Thereby giving birth to what I’ve called “The Twisted Prosperity Gospel” of which is the central message of today’s church.

In-spite the perverted, twisted prosperity gospel; “It is the will of God (Yahweh) to prosper his people, financially and in all areas of their lives” Here’s the undeniable truth, 99.9% of today’s church and religious leaders are misappropriating the word of God for their own selfish, financial gain.  

While many in the world are of the view that all church leaders are corrupt, wicked, money hawks; I can boldly say “that’s not the case, as there are many true men of God that are living upright before God and man”

There are some church leaders, who will rather stand firmly upon the word of God and not compromise for financial gain or otherwise.  They struggle like the regular citizens and their congregation to make ends-meet and are determine to wait on the Lord for their change, rather than to preach / teach the twisted prosperity gospel.
Satan would have you not to be a part of any church congregation that’s preaching / teaching the uncompromised, unadulterated word of God, on the premise that all Pastors / Church Leaders are corrupt and wicked; but certainly that’s not true.
Watch this!
I’ve yet to meet the person who’ve had a counterfeit $1, 5, 10, 20, 50, 100, or 1000 dollars note and hear him or her say that “I’ve had counterfeit money before, and I will have nothing to do with money ever again because they’re all no good”
It’s time for the body of Christ (Yahshua Messiah) to have a working knowledge / revelation of the fact that God (Yahweh) wants them to prosper both spiritually and naturally. There’s no earthly King or any sound thinking person of great financial substance that would relish in the fact that his children are living in poverty or living a substandard lifestyle. (Matt.7: 11.  If ye then, being evil, know how to give good gifts unto your children, how much more shall your Father which is in heaven give good things to them that ask him?)   

Prosperity and the kingdom of God go hand-in-hand; it’s just that in most cases due to erroneous religious teachings many believers can only perceive the word prosperity through the eyes of finances.  This ignorant perception of prosperity is causing many within the church to live a stressful life, as they fall for all kinds of financial schemes, (so-called investments) gimmicks and pyramids.  Whereas Yahshua says in John.10:10b. I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
This word abundantly in the Greek is: Perissos, Per-is-sos'; which means (1) or superior in quality, (2) excessive, (3) preeminence, (4) an advantage,
As believers, we ought to always seek to give God pleasure and we do that by living a prosperous life. Being mindful that prosperity and prosperous doesn’t only include finances, but rather it’s a life of nothing missing, nothing lacking and nothing broken. 

What’s not being accurately taught to today’s congregation is that the key to Godly prosperity is of total OBEDIENCE to the word of God; not partial obedience.
Please Note:  No matter whom your religious leader might be or how many books he / she may have written concerning God’s glory, His kingdom or that of prosperity; the purchasing and studying of your religious Bishop, Doctor, Apostle, Prophet, Pastor, etc; books guarantees you absolutely nothing.

Your prosperity lies in your obedience to the following:  
Josh.1: 8.  This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein: for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.
As an uncompromising believer / disciple of Yahshua Messiah (a.k.a. Jesus the Christ) you will go through a wilderness period; sometimes your wilderness experience maybe an extensive one, even to the point where you might be rejected by folks of whom you’d least expect.  Some of the most painful rejections to experience are those of being rejected by close family members and those from the household faith.

Yet, these are the very same types of rejections that brings forth a greater level of God’s glory / His manifested presence in and upon the life of a believer; whereby the believer’s testimony would be as that of the Psalmist in the following.  

( Psa.118: 22.  The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner.
: 23.  This is the LORD'S doing; it is marvellous in our eyes.
: 24.  This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.
: 25.  Save now, I beseech thee, O LORD: O LORD, I beseech thee, send now prosperity.)
God wants you to prosper:
