Does God Really Desire Me to Prosper?
You have a BIG vision but you wonder if God really wants you to prosper
You find yourself playing smaller than you know you could be.
There is a gap between your faith and your work/.
You desire to see more miracles in your life.
“Beloved, I pray that in every way you may succeed and prosper and be in good health [physically], just as [I know] your soul prospers [spiritually].” 3 John 2 AMP
I used to wonder if God wants me to prosper. After more than 30 years of studying what scripture says and successfully coaching men and women to increase their faith, income, and health and enjoy better relationships, I can confidently answer YES He does!
3 John 2 sheds a lot of light on the subject. The verse opens with “Beloved”. .I have found that
“Prosperity always begins and ends with love.”
If we do not believe God loves us or that we are worthy of His love and blessings we will sabotage our ability to prosper.
If we fail to see others as created in the image of God and worthy of love we will block the law of giving and receiving and our ability to prosper will also be hindered.
The verse gives us a broad perspective of prosperity. It includes “all things” even specifically mentioning “being in health”.
True prosperity includes more than money.
True prosperity encompasses our spiritual, relational, physical and financial life. It does not sacrifice one area of our life to gain another. The old paradigm of spending all our health to acquire wealth and then have to spend all our wealth regain our health is not true prosperity!
I’ll conclude this post with the conclusion of the verse. It holds a powerful key! “even as your soul prospers”. A biblical definition of the soul includes the mind, will, and emotions.
Our prosperity is directly linked with our mind, will, and emotions.
Scripture and science both confirm illness, dis-ease, the health of our immune system, and even the rate in which we age are directly tied to our thoughts, emotions, and words, this is one of my favorite topics to share! Watch for future posts on how to experience lasting transformation, enjoy fulfilling relationships, vibrant health and prosper in every area of your life.
Praying YOU prosper in ALL things!
