We serve a God who "delights in the prosperity of His people." (Psalm 35:27).
HE DELIGHTS!! The word "prosperity" in this particular passage means: completeness, soundness, welfare, peace, safety, welfare, health, prosperity, tranquility, contentment, quiet. It comes from the root word "shaw-lam", which is "shalom." PEACE... Nothing missing, nothing broken, nothing ignored.
I love what F.F. Bosworth says in his book, Christ the Healer:
"God is always hunting for opportunities to gratify His benevolent heart, because "He delighteth in mercy." Benevolence is the great attribute of God; therefore, if you want to please Him, move the obstacles out of the way of the exercise of His benevolence.
He is infinitely good, and He exists forever in a state of entire consecration to pour forth blessings upon His creatures whenever they make it possible, which all may do. Imagine that the vast Pacific Ocean were elevated high above us. Then imagine it poured out and pressing into every crevice to find an outlet through which it might stream its flood tides over all the earth, and you have a picture of God's benevolent attitude toward us."
