3John 1:2 Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.
It is amazing how believers can subscribe to the dubious notion that God is probably not interested in their welfare. The nature of life is that it will throw several challenges of various types in our path but many have concluded that the challenges of their life must mean that there is divine approval for suffering. This is far from the truth!
In the scripture we find it written that God has great plans for us and I personally do not think that lack, despondency and insufficiency will make a good definition or synonym of great plans. Jeremiah 29:11 is abundant with meaning concerning the plans of God for you and your family. Never for once think that a God that takes good pleasure in giving good gifts unto His children will contradict Himself by willing a life of nakedness and want for His children. No! That cannot be the God of the bible.
Romans 8:32 He that spared not his own Son, but delivered him up for us all, how shall he not with him also freely give us all things?
Consider the fact that God did not spare Jesus Christ His only begotten Son but relinquished Him just because of you. You will understand that He will not have difficulty giving less precious things that are unlike His Son to you. God is getting ready to give you your heart desires in this season. Debunk every thought that tries to persuade you that you should not expect great things to happen to you. That’s the voice of the enemy making an attempt to keep you contained.
But the devil is a liar! God has concluded plans to show up for you this season. His plans are good and not evil to give you an expected end. Definitely and most assuredly you will share your testimony before long in Jesus Name!
Jesus said “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” John 10:10.
Jesus came so that you may have and live a life of abundance. Don’t let the circumstances of your life or the economic environment delude you. You are part of Gods grand strategy to showcase His magnificence and wealth in these last days and you will not miss out in Jesus Name! God wants you to prosper! God wants you rich! He is not glorified by your lack and want. He wants you to live the best life not just a good one. Halleluyah!
Your lack and want does not serve Gods purpose. If you are living in lack you are not fulfilling God’s will for your life “ I wish (will) above all things that thou mayest prosper…” Poverty and lack makes a caricature of your life and redemption. You don’t have to tolerate it. You have a choice, use it! If God has freely given us all things to richly enjoy (God..giveth us richly all things to enjoy 1Timothy 6:17) Why should you be having a hard time time embracing His will for your life?
He gives all things for all of us to richly enjoy! That might be huge for some to swallow but that is where the counsel of God is situated and your feelings of unworthiness will never change that. So, get with the program and receive that which has already been given. It’s yours in Christ because you belong to the covenant of blessings.
Its your turn to shine.
