3 John 1:2 KJV: Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
It is obvious from our text that God is happy when we prosper and remain in health. It’s never God’s desire that you should be sick and remain in lack. Because he is the God of abundance… So why would he want his children to be in lack?
However, for you to prosper and be in good health, your soul needs to prosper. Your soul is the seat of your mind, your will, and emotion. No wonder the Bible says to renew your mind. Romans 12:2. And in another verse, it says let this mind that is in Christ be in you. Philippians 2:5. For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.. Proverbs 23:7 KJV
If your mind is not renewed in the word of God, your are bound to face lack and become sick in your body and soul…
Therefore it is of great importance that we spend time to nurture our soul in the word of God and not only feeding our bodies which is temporal.
Declare to yourself loud: I have the mind of Christ. My soul is growing in the knowledge of Christ. I walk in sound health. I walk in abundance. I have no sense of lack. Hallelujah.
Lord Jesus, enlighten the eyes of my understanding that I may know you more. In Jesus Name. Amen.
