I sent some thoughts on 3 John 2 several weeks ago, but I need to send some these thoughts again. I pray that whoever this is for will find strength and courage in His promise.
3 John 2
“Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospers” (3 John 2).
When I first read these words years ago, I had just found out that I had cancer, and God spoke these words of directly to me. The Lord placed my name after “beloved”. I was His beloved. He wished for me to thrive and be in health! My mind focused completely on these words, and I decided they were His promise for me! He wanted me well! I read the second half of the verse, “even as thy soul prospers”. When my soul thrives and prospers, His promise is for healing for whatever my need. My soul thrives out of love for Him, and in return I prosper and discover His health. With spiritual growth, I can believe in God’s healing even when I haven’t experienced it, because with a prospering soul, God bestows greater faith to believe. With greater faith I also learned that the healing my mind envisions may not be what God has for me. But it is always for my spiritual best.
Are you facing a difficult situation in your life? Perhaps you face an illness which claims your days. God wishes above all things that you prosper in Him, and discover His truth and health for your life. Although it may not seem much, give Him the best you can give him, and He will give you His very best in return. Hope will prosper and faith will grow. You soul will prosper, and you will discover His promise for you.
