How Is Your Soul?
– by Gebhardt Berndt
A soul that prospers results in a prosperous life – how is your soul? The Scripture declares in 3 John 2, “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers”. From this Scripture, we can see that the health of our spirit and soul determines our material health, and not the other way around. Beloved – if we do not start with the understanding that we are loved, we will never be able to prosper in anything else.
Our life can only prosper as our soul prospers. In other words, God is much more concerned with what is on the inside of you than what is on the outside. God wants to resurrect your thought life and word life so that it equates to His promise, His plan, and His destiny. It is not what is on the outside of the boat that can sink a boat, but what is on the inside. Boats have been made to function above water, and water within a boat can be deadly. Hence, it is not what is in a man’s hands, but what is in his heart that determines his path.
The good news is that as long as you have breath, you can recalibrate your heart and find your true North in Christ. Therefore, how is your soul? Is it full of peace, joy, hope, and life? Or are your thoughts filled with anxiety and depression? Whatever is in your soul determines your life! If you’re not where you are supposed to be reach out today! We are ready to assist!
