Blessed To Prosper!
3 John 1:2; 1 Thessalonians 5:23.
3 John 1:2 “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”
The subject of prosperity is much more than money, as many people think of prosperity only in financial terms. There are three sides or dimensions of prosperity: First, prosperity with God, that is, walking with God and having a life with God, this is spiritual prosperity; second, is the prosperity of your soul which has to do with walking in peace with all men, which also means having a renewed mind that has the understanding of life and God’s will for you; third, is the prosperity of your body, which is living in health and having more than enough money to meet your needs and to be a blessing to other people. So, prosperity impacts man on these three levels – spirit, soul and body. Man is primarily a spirit being that has a soul and lives in the body. Your spirit was created by God to be in fellowship with God and receive life and sustenance from God to bless your world. Your soul is the part of you that reflects or reveals your personality and then your body shows your physicality, the physical dimension of you, which is the vessel God has given you to operate in this physical world. So, when we talk about prosperity, it goes beyond financial prosperity; it is not only limited to money matters.
Primarily, prosperity has to do with knowing God, getting born again and having a personal relationship or walk with God, which then leads to the prosperity of the soul, which is having your mind renewed and having a good understanding of life, such that you are a person of understanding, you are a lover of peace, you follow peace with all men, you don’t have bitterness or strife in your soul against anybody. This in turn leads to physical and financial prosperity because when your soul prospers, you prosper. Our opening Scripture says, “I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” So, you are going to prosper to the degree that your soul prospers. When you prosper in your soul, you will prosper physically, which is living in health and having financial prosperity to meet your needs and that of other people. Listen beloved, God blessed you to live in health, so don’t put up with sickness; don’t justify it; don’t say, “well, it is our family sickness.” There is no such thing in Christ. Don’t keep history of family sickness in your natural family, rather remember the history of your family blessing in Christ, for if any man is in Christ, he is a new creature; old things are passed away and all things have become new. You are the seed of Abraham in Christ, and the blessing is in your lineage. Genesis 24:1 says, “And Abraham was old, and well stricken in age: and the LORD had blessed Abraham in all things.” Long life and prosperity are your portion in Christ, because you are the seed of Abraham (Galatians 3:29). Hallelujah!
MY SOLID FRONT (YOUR CONFESSION): In the Name of Jesus Christ, I declare that I am blessed!!! Blessed to live in health, blessed to rule over my world, blessed to be fruitful and have dominion, blessed to walk in prosperity all the days of my life. That’s God’s plan for me. Amen!
Further Meditation: Romans 12:2; Genesis 1:28.
