God’s Highest Wish

From the archives of Evelyn Roberts

In 1947, Oral and I discovered a Scripture that literally changed our lives. Oral was attending Phillips University in Enid, Oklahoma, at the time, and each morning he would read a portion of Scripture before catching the bus to go to class. One morning he was running late and left the house without reading his Bible. When he remembered, he came rushing back to the house and scooped up his Bible. He opened it to 3 John 2 and read, “Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth.” Even though he studied the Bible daily, Oral had never noticed that Scripture before!

A positive, uplifting Scripture, 3 John 2 tells us that God is a good God who desires to take care of all of our needs.

God wants our material needs met. He doesn’t want us to be poverty-stricken. He is concerned about our car payments, medical bills, food, and housing expenses. He wants us to prosper.

God is concerned about our health. He doesn’t want us to be sick. He doesn’t want our ears to be deaf, our eyes to be blind, or our bodies to be crippled. Neither does He want us to be mentally or emotionally broken.

God is concerned about our souls. He wants to have a personal relationship with us for all eternity.

I believe that before we can expect miracles, we must believe that God is a good God who wants us to prosper. When we see God in the light of His goodness and His great love for us, then start believing and giving, He can help us prosper beyond anything we can imagine. God’s highest wish is that we be whole!
