Prosper in His Name...[11]

Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.
[3 John 2]

God wants us to prosper. Because of the extremes and imbalance in this area, many individuals struggle with this concept. However, God does want us to prosper. Now the word 'prosper' means - to succeed, to thrive, to do well, to flourish.

God certainly wants the best for us in every way. David expressed this truth when he said...

May those who delight in my vindication shout for joy and gladness;
may they always say, "The Lord be exalted,
who delights in the well-being of his servant."
[Psalms 35:27]

Like everything in life, there are conditions. The Bible has many promises for the believers, but they have to be appropriated. Remember, we are meant to stand on the promises, not sit on the premises.

To receive God's prosperity into our life we must daily delight and meditate in the Word of God. Will this challenge you?

But his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night.
He is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither. Whatever he does prospers.
[Psalms 1: 2-3]

As we allow God's Word to enter into our lives and action its truth, our lives are directed into the way of God's blessing and properity. Yes, God does want you to flourish in your spirit, in your soul (mind, intellect and emotions) your body, as well as your walk, ministry and financial areas.

We are not made rich by what is in our pockets, but by what is in our hearts.
