The Love of God: God Wants Me to Prosper Text: 3 John 2. God’s will is rooted in His love for you. It’s His goodness that leads people to repentance, so Satan tries to keep you from knowing and believing that. God wants you to prosper and considers that more important than holiness. To prosper is to have more than enough. God wants us to realize that He is a rewarder (Heb. 11:6). God wants to clothe us (Matt. 6:28-30), and He wants our soul to prosper. If you’re not prospering in health and being blessed, check on your soul’s prosperity. How does your soul prosper? When the Word of God gets in your thoughts, then prosperity can come. Recorded in Matt. 8:1-17 Jesus demonstrated God’s love and desire for us to prosper and be in health: in one day He healed a leper, the centurion’s servant, and Peter’s mother-in-law. Pastor Dale relates how tired he was after ministering and hearing testimonies of people’s healings, but God wanted to keep going, because He wants us to prosper even more than we want it.
