Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers. 3 John 1:2
John the disciple of our Lord Jesus Christ writes this to Gaius, how John knows that Gaius soul prospers? John said, for I rejoiced greatly when the brothers came and testified to your truth, as indeed you are walking in the truth. 3 John 1:3 Only those who are filled by Holy Spirit alone can walk in the truth, God gives Holy Spirit to those who obey Him and ask Him in prayers!
Since Gaius was walking in the truth, John know that his soul prospers, so he prayed for him to prosper in all respects and also for good health. Today, do you pray to prosper materially and for your health more than asking God for His grace to walk His truth and live a overcoming life? After gaining everything in the world, if a person looses his soul then what benefit is in that?
I am writing this for those who thinks that prosperity in all aspects is more important than prosperity in soul, the Spiritual blessings. As God’s Word says, seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things shall be added unto us. Our God is able to do beyond and above what we could think or imagine. Let us abide in His love and walk in the Spirit! Always be blessed in all respects, be prosperous through Christ! Amen!
