“Beloved, I wish above all thing’s that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” 3 John 1:2Text — 3 John 1:1-4
Many people often think prosperity means abundance of material things, financial breakthrough, success in academic and others. All these are physical prosperity. The Bible passage focuses on complete prosperity, which covers both the spiritual and physical. The first aspect that God is interested in is our souls. This is because the soul of man is diseased with sin and can only enjoy good health when all its iniquities are forgiven and will also prosper when it is totally cleansed and made holy.
As friends of Jesus, we will enjoy the full blessings of God if only we walk in truth and righteousness. God’s promised prosperity is complete, which means it covers all the areas of our lives. It is not the will of God for any of His children to live in sickness, failure, oppression, poverty and other unpleasant conditions. Remember that the first thing to do is to ensure that you are born again. If you are not, do so now by confessing and forsaking your sins and asking Jesus to forgive you. Then, surrender totally to God, live daily for Him and obey His word. You will definitely enjoy all-round prosperity.
