3 John 1:2(KJV) reveals a new dimension of God’s loving-kindness, it reads, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. This dimension is God’s desire for all His children; He wants us to live in a state of complete wellness as a tripartite being – spirit, soul and body else it is not true prosperity and that is why the theme for this month is all-encompassing. We cannot be successful in one area then held bound in another, His innermost desire is that you and I enjoy the fullness of life such that it flows over to others! Welcome to the tenth Month of 2014, October! Our Month of Overflowing Wellness! May every day of this month bring you victory over every form of affliction as the word of God work wonders for you in Jesus name. Number 10 (5 x 2) connotes multiplication of grace; Ps.84:11 For the Lord God is a sun and shield: the Lord will give grace and glory: no good thing will he withhold from them that walk uprightly. I pray that God’s grace will be multiplied in your all areas of your life in Jesus name. From now on, the Lord will not withhold any good thing from you. You shall not be held bound by sickness, lack or any form of generational limitations, the loving-kindness of God will ensure you enjoy overflowing wellness in Jesus name.
Like clearly pointed out above, to overflow means you have excess such that it is running over to others, you are not able to hold back what you are experiencing even when you try to, God has so much blessed you that you are a channel of blessing to others. Such was the experience of Joseph, even as a prisoner (Gen.39:22-23), he continued to overflow! The prison yard could not contain him; slavery could not either (Gen. 39:5-6). That goes to show that not even obstacles can limit God’s plan for us, even at times when things may look dull and uneventful, there is light at the end of the tunnel and complete wellness is our God’s given right! Never lose focus of that! You will not lose focus of your inheritance in Jesus name. I pray that nothing will limit your destiny this glorious month in Jesus name. As stars do not struggle to shine, you will effortlessly glow in life, remain relevant and excel in all areas; in any situation or circumstance, you will radiate God’s overflowing wellness in Jesus name.
God does not wish for anyone to wallow in pain, sorrow and penury! His desire is that we enjoy our life – physically, mentally, spiritually and materially and still be so blessed such that our children enjoy same, Abraham, Isaac, Jacob all passed down this overflowing wellness to many generations, of which you and I are one. What about Mr Job, in spite of all that he went through, God proved Himself faithful and his latter end was more glorious, Job’s sickness disappeared, he was restored and God blessed his latter end so much more than his beginning (Job 42:10 – 12). He was given total and outright victory over all his afflictions - That is overflowing wellness! Whatever you are going through or has gone through, may God Almighty prove Himself to you this month in Jesus name.
Remember God said in Jeremiah 29:11(CEV) that “I will bless you with a future filled with hope - a future of success, not of suffering.” God wants us to prosper but not without Him; firstly, there is no shortcut, to enjoy overflowing wellness means you need to believe it’s for you and you are entitled to it! God said I WISH above all things that YOU......! Secondly, in order to tap into this promise of God, you need to make Him the centre of your life, give Him top priority and let Him take precedence over all; when you seek Him, He will add things you didn’t ask for to your life….Luke 6:33. Thirdly, you must take time to feast, not nibble on the word! Study and learn the word and as you study, ask God to reveal the Truth in His word to you, only then can you apply it to your life and only then can THE WORD work wonders for you! There is no better time to study the word than now and perhaps you are still indecisive about accepting Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, why don’t you do so now and enjoy this overflowing wellness, we have been discussing. The more you study the word, the more God will reveal His promises to you and the more your mind will be tuned to believing and receiving them (Rom.10:17).
The result of immersing yourself in the Word is that your soul begins to prosper, as it does so, every aspect of your life is also transformed- your body, your marriage, career etc. That is why the scripture stresses the importance of the soul as well, that brings me to the fourth point, you cannot be transformed without renewing your mind (Rom.12:2). The mind plays a very important role in overflowing wellness. If the devil can mess with your mind, he can mess with your well-being. You must nurture the mind regularly by confessing the word of God, affirming and re-affirming it regularly and before long, things will begin to happen in your life. May your mind be transformed through the word in Jesus name and may this transformation take you to the topmost top as you enjoy overflowing wellness in Jesus name. Shalom
