Jos Wells's comment on 2015-08-20 03:49:21:

As God's children, He expects of us to prosper and to be in good health as the scripture righty said.because the God's word is His Will for His children. But it is important to note that, our psysical prosperity in this world depends on our spiritual prosperity that is the prosperity of the soul. We must therefore make every concious effort to make our soul which comprises our will, emotions, mind, and feelings to conform to God's word. We can't live our lives anyhow and expect God to prosper us. By this way, our prosperity is garanteed

 

Kingsley O's comment on 2015-08-17 17:57:14:

I believe this is the will of God. That we prosper and be in good health as our soul prospers. Our soul can only prosper in Christ, and we can only increase in the health and prosperity that comes from God when our soul increases in conformity to the spirit of God. Therefore spiritual development is necessary to access these huge blessings. Toying with sin will bring the negative, so we must ask for forgiveness and grace for our souls to continue in the light of God - Shalom.

I believe God wants us to enjoy all things when he said it is finished he meant it God cannot be limited by our human wisdom he is a God of every possibilties

 

Demetrick Caldwell's comment on 2015-03-08 10:28:35:

We have to have and keep the faith in HIS living word. So if or when we face trials in our health,finances or anything else that comes against us, we have to feed our spirit man this sculpture along with other scriptures that tell of HIS desires for us to prosper and have good health. HE had the scriptures written for that very cause. So we have something to tell the enemy and we tell the enemy our any unfortunate situation what GOD says about us and desires for us. We know that GOD can not lie because HE is truth. So when those fiery darts come our way we have a shield to block them with also weapons to fire back at what ever comes against us, thus, the living and powerful word of GOD.

I believe he want is to prosper at the same time we are growing in the lord. They go together and we cant prosper if we dont grow spiritually.for that why he came to restore our heart,soul back to him. We miss it all when we dont give up our will for his. I LOVE HIM DEARLY AND BELIEVE IN THE SALVATION OF GODS PEOPLE. GOD BLESS!

Yemisi's comment on 2014-01-31 09:07:30:

Apostle John was expressing the provision of God for his people.he was simply 'wishing' that we would stand up and posess our good health ,knowing fully well that a healthy body/ is needed for productivity in Life,and you need to be spiritually sound to keep health. Shalom.

 

Rosie. Westbrook's comment on 2013-12-21 05:49:34:

Samson's comment on 2013-11-21 13:03:31:

Most of the time people are more after the material things of this world than the prosperity of their souls

 

Lorie Hudson's comment on 2013-11-12 14:27:55:

I have no doubt that we would be undermining the huge cost that Christ paid to think that it was payment for anything less than "ALL" and All means ALL-He paid to purchase back everthing that was forfeited at the fall-now it is our responsibility to TAKE it back-How? We walk by Faith not by sight-the moment His promise is sown in our hearts the enemy makes every attempt to steal that good seed. Grace is the soil in which the seed grows-we don't earn what has been already provided we TAKE IT! by faith-it is a gift. Every blessing is a gift-lest any man should boast. The enemy uses guilt, condemnation, distraction, the cares of this world and anything he can to steal the seed. It is our responsibility to guard our heart/seed from all the above-after doing all to stand therefore-STAND!Don't give up-don't forfeit His promise to you of health/prosperity/blessing-Fight the good fight of Faith

 

DOREEN's comment on 2013-10-27 13:21:15:

powerful,first seek the kingdom of God others shall surely come

 

Grace's comment on 2013-10-14 01:55:34:

Our God is a merciful God, full of loving kindness and unconditional love for mankind. His every wish for us, is to prosper in ' all things' including a 'totally healthy body mind and soul'. It follows therefore that, an unhealthy body and mind cannot nurture a healthy soul! We must continuously rise above the evil and wickedness of this earth, to preserve our souls fit for his kingdom. That is my understanding of God's desire and passion for us! I, glorify his holy name!

God only spoke through His Servant

 

Sandra's comment on 2013-08-22 18:40:40:

God wants us to enjoy only the best things in life...good health and every other thing that makes us comfortable...Amen.

 

Margaret's comment on 2013-07-22 10:29:17:

I believe God is strategically encouraging us to pay close attention to His Words because His Words have life. He's not saying that we will all have prosperity and good health, but that is His unfailing desire for us. There are other components, such as, obedience and love involved in getting the prosperity and good health mentioned in 3 John 1:2.
