Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. – 3 John 2 (King James Version).
God wants us to prosper and be in health as our soul prospers.
What does that word prosper mean in this context? It is the Greek transliterated word euodoo, which means to grant a prosperous and expeditious journey, to lead by a direct and easy way, to grant a successful issue, to cause to prosper, to prosper, be successful.
In other words, God wants to lead us into prosperity of our health, wealth and in every area of our lives. He does this by leading us by a direct and easy way that will cause us to prosper and be successful.
We will never be successful in life if we don’t let God lead us. If we follow our own way, we will fail every time. How much we are yielded to God will determine how much prosperity we enjoy in our lives.
