Beloved, I pray that in all respects you may prosper and be in good health, just as your soul prospers. _3 John 1:2, NASB
God wants you healed, whole and living abundantly
You need look no further than 3 John 1:2 for a prayer that reflects what God’s heart for you clearly is. This verse is the reason you can know without a doubt that God the Father wants you healed, healthy and fully provided for, just as He wants your soul to prosper!
Because the Lord is my Shepherd, I have everything I need!
He lets me rest in the meadow grass and leads me beside the quiet streams. He gives me new strength. He helps me do what honors him the most.
Even when walking through the dark valley of death I will not be afraid, for you are close beside me, guarding, guiding all the way.[a]
You provide delicious food for me in the presence of my enemies. You have welcomed me as your guest;[b] blessings overflow!
Your goodness and unfailing kindness shall be with me all of my life, and afterwards I will live with you forever in your home. _ Psalm 23 (TLB)
You can’t go by human experiences to know that God wants His people healed today. If you say, “Well, I know of Christians who are sick,” I can point you to many others whom God has healed. We’re not called to base our believing on human experiences. We are called to base our faith on God’s Word.
We’re called to believe God’s Word.
- Romans 4:3
For what does the scripture say? “Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness.”
- Galatians 3:6
Thus Abraham “believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness.”
- James 2:23
and the scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was reckoned to him as righteousness”; and he was called the friend of God.
Look to God’s Word
Dear Hearts, never put your eyes on people, even good people, and their experiences. The basis of our faith must always be God’s Word. If you are sick today, don’t focus on your symptoms or compare yourself with someone else. Meditate on His healing promises and believe that God still heals and blesses today because His Word says so!
