III John 2-4
Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.
God makes it abundantly clear in His Word that He is for the good of mankind and He proved it by sending His Son. Many people have a hard time understanding this because they are more focused on the physical than the spiritual. Look at it from this perspective. When you’re born again, your spirit experiences a rebirth but your physical body and your soul (mind, will, and emotions) are still in need of renewal. The key to obtaining all of His promises is allowing your soul to come in line with your redeemed spirit. As you renew your mind through prayer and the Word, your soul will begin to form beliefs based upon the Word of God rather than upon the worldly way of thinking. In other words, you begin to live by faith, not by sight. When your soul is saturated with the Word and promises of God it will be healthy and strong. When it is healthy and strong, it will have the same effect on your physical body. A reborn spirit, coupled with a strong and healthy soul will cause you to experience the promises of God manifesting in your life and body. You can expect good health and a good life when you choose to do what it takes to maintain a healthy soul. What areas in your life do you feel could be healthier and stronger? If you’ll address those areas in your mind by feeding them from the Word you’ll soon see them become healthier in the physical as well. – Love and Blessings, Pastor Jeff
