DEVO 11.18.22


“Beloved, I pray that in every way you may succeed and prosper and be in good health [physically], just as [I know] your soul prospers [spiritually].” - 3 JOHN‬ ‭1:2‬ ‭AMP‬‬


- Do you know that it is God’s desire that you prosper and succeed in every way?

- Every way!

- To prosper literally means that He will give you a “push forward”.

- There is a certain level that you can achieve on your own by the work of your hands but then God comes along and pushes you to do more than you could ever do.

- True prosperity humbles you!

- When God prospers you, you know that you know, it’s God and not you!

- And John, the apostle, says, “in every way”

- That means that God wants to bless your relationships, so that where there was once division, there is unity.

- He wants to bless you at work, where there was once chaos, there is now order.

- He wants to bless your health so that where there was once sickness, there is now health.

- He wants to bless your mind and emotions so that you aren’t living in depression and anxiety but so that “the peace of Christ [the inner calm of one who walks daily with Him] be the controlling factor in your hearts [deciding and settling questions that arise]. (Colossians 3:15)

- He wants to bless your finances so that the areas where you had lack, you now will experience an abundant blessing!

- He wants to give you more than you need so that you can then be a blessing to others.

- God wants His people to be blessed so that they can be a blessing to others.

- But He needs to be FIRST in every way.

- It’s not about the blessing, it’s about the one who Blesses!

- The key to all of this is to truly make Him first!

- Matthew 6:33 says, “Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.”

- Don’t treat God like your personal Santa Clause. That’s a huge mistake!

- Instead, fall in Love with Him.

- Walk “In Love” with Him.

- Focus on Him and let Him take care of the rest.

- Make your relationship with God your most important goal!

- Focus on Him and trust in Him.

- In Jeremiah 29:13, He says,“If you look for me wholeheartedly, you will find me.”

- Search for Him with all of your heart today, and let Him take care of how and when He prospers you!

- Have a great Weekend!
