The danger of health and wealth doctrine resides within the belief that good circumstances and wealthy living flow from God as blessing. That is not Paul’s experience, however. God worked to give Paul a transformed perspective about his lot in God’s service. As God transforms our perspective, we find ourselves trapped against the fundamental truth that the present circumstances are God’s blessing for ministry. Whether poor or wealthy, sick or well, old or young, or whatever the occasion of life may suggest, God gives opportunity for believers to serve him.
