ABOVE ANYTHING ELSE

Do you know what God wants more than anything else? Do you know what His ultimate desire is for you? Well Scripture tells us God's greatest desire, as found in III John 2:

"Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest  prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.”

There it is. God's greatest desire revealed to us. This is what God wants MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE. So since this is what God wants, then it should also be what we desire more than anything else.

Notice here that God's ultimate desire is for you to experience His best in every part of your life. In that passage of Scripture, God settles the issue on prosperity, healing, and a prosperous, sound mind or soul. First of all, He tells us that above all things He wants us to prosper. Talk about good news! That means He wants you to be blessed (financially, socially, emotionally, spiritually, and all otherwise) and He wants you in control of every circumstance or situation that you come up against. God wants to see you win; He wants to see you succeed; He wants to see you on top-all the time!

Secondly, He also tells us that above all things He wants you to be in health. Isn't it good to know that your physical well being is of prime importance to God? Therefore, when you face any kind of sickness, disease, pain, discomfort, or problem of any kind in your body, you should immediately rise up against it because you know that's not God's will for you. You should also know then that sickness coming on your body is not God trying to teach you something, as some like to say. God is not double-minded; He's not a two-headed monster. If He says that above all things (that means above ANYTHING ELSE) that He wants you to be in health, then He would not turn right back around and make you sick. The two don't go together, and it will never happen that way. God wants you in health.

Finally, God desires above all things that your soul (your mind, will and emotions) prospers. He wants you to have a sound mind-one that is well balanced, calm, free from worry, doubt and fear. He wants you to be stable in your emotions-not up one day and down the next. He wants your will to prosper, as it lines up with His will-so that whatever "you will" can be done in your life. God wants it to be ALL GOOD in your life; He wants you whole-spirit, soul, body, finances, relationships, and all otherwise, and He wants that more than anything else. From this point forward, don't ever allow the devil to lie to you again and tell you that God doesn't really care about you or want to give you a good life because God wants to do that more than anything else. Are you getting this? God's greatest desire, what He wants above all things is for His people to be on top wearing the best, driving the best, living in the best, with perfect health, blessed relationships and marriages, successful careers, anointed ministries, and the list goes on and on.

Remember, anything that you encounter that will try to harm you, bring you down or destroy your life in any way is from the devil.

"For the thief [the devil] cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy…” John 10:10.

You see it's the devil that's coming to steal from you, kill you and destroy you-not God.

So let's look at the last part of that verse to see again, as we've seen in III John 2, what God's purpose is for your life: "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly."

That's God talking-and He wants that most of all!
