Several years ago, the Lord began to speak to me about healing in a very strong way. He led me to read a verse I believe clearly articulates His will for us.
- It was written by the disciple whom Jesus loved.
- The disciple who was an eyewitness as Jesus went about healing all who came to Him.
- The disciple who leaned on Jesus’ bosom and knew the heartbeat of His love.
It is the apostle John. 3 John 2 states, “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers.” What I want you to see is that John was writing to the well-beloved Gaius, a believer. He knew that his soul was already prospering.
If you have invited Jesus into your heart to be your Lord and Savior, then you have received the gift of eternal life and can have a full assurance that heaven is your home. Rom. 10:9–10 says, “that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.”
Whatever challenges you might be faced with on the outside, your soul, which is eternal, has begun prospering. It wasn’t enough for John to know Gaius’ soul was prospering. John prayed that Gaius would also “prosper in all things and be in health.” In other words, you can pray for your outward, physical body to be healthy even as your soul is healthy, in Christ. Hallelujah!!
You can be sure God’s will is for you to be healthy because His Word declares it. Since His will is for you to be “in health,” don’t go with human tradition or man’s opinion that says it is sometimes His will for you to be sick.
Don’t let religious principles cause you to believe the lie God wants you sick so you can learn to trust Him more or grow in patience. Because of what Jesus did at Calvary, we can be sure sickness is never from God. Healing is!
Come back to the simplicity of declaring like a child, “Jesus loves me, this I know, for the Bible tells me so.” In the same way, how do I know Jesus wants us to walk in His health and wholeness? For the Bible tells me so. Amen!
