Joel and Victoria Osteen’s daily devotional July 22, 2016 – As Your Soul Prospers
Today’s Scripture: “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” - (3 John 1:2, NKJV)
Topic: As Your Soul Prospers [July 22, 2016]
In the New Testament, John prayed that we would prosper and be in health “as our souls prosper.” One translation says “as you are strong in spirit.”
God wants your inner man to be strong and healthy because your internal condition affects your external condition. If you are healthy in your soul, you will be healthy in your relationships, finances and every area. On the other hand, if your internal condition is negative, sour and defeated, then your life will reflect the same thing.
How do you become strong and healthy in your soul? First of all, by receiving Jesus as your Lord and Savior and dedicating every area of your life to Him. Then, as you meditate on His Word and follow what He says, you are giving strength to your inner man. You are programming your mind and heart in the right direction. You are setting yourself up to prosper and be in health in every area of your life!
A Prayer for Today: “Father, thank You for Your goodness. Thank You for choosing me and setting me up to prosper in this life. Today, I dedicate every area of my heart and mind to You. Strengthen my inner man by Your Spirit today in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
