Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. – III John 2 (KJV).
Look at this verse carefully.
Today we have people preaching health and wealth. Both are not wrong. God does want us healthy and to have enough money in order to do what He has called us to do: to be a blessing to others.
However, there is a hitch here. God wants us to be prosper and be in health even as our souls prosper. The key to being healthy, the key to having enough to be a blessing to others, is soul prosperity.
What is the soul? It is your mind, will and emotions.
We will only be in health and prosper to the extent that we have surrender those things to God and allowed Him to help us in those areas.
God never expects us to get our minds, wills and emotions right on our own. He is only asking that we surrender them to Him and allow Him to do a work in those areas of our lives. A lot of times it is a daily, even moment by moment process. The key is to work with Him and not against Him.
Have you surrendered them to Him today?
