Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. – 3 John 1:2
How can you develop a prosperous soul?
Your soul can only be qualified by your behavior and your motive. It’s not just doing good. Why are you doing good? Is it to glorify God? Is it just to swap out for some money? If God prospers you with a swap out, the blessings will wipe you out. If God blesses you and you have no teaching under your belt and you have no reverence or honor, money will destroy you.
In 3 John, John’s soul was qualified to prosper because he was operating in truth and he put God’s work first. He didn’t only have the behavior, he had kingdom motives. God’s purposes were PRIORITY in his life.
Remember, God‘s DESIRE is to bless you but HE must be the first thing on your mind.
Kingdom motive! Not car motive! Kingdom motive! Not money motive! Kingdom motive! And your desires will just come while you are focusing on God’s purposes!
If you are going to operate in God’s kind of prosperity, the kingdom of God and the will of God must be the priority!
