God not only wants to supply our needs but He desires to give us ABUNDANCE in every area of our lives! Jesus said in John 10:10 (New King James Version) that He has come to give us LIFE and life more ABUNDANTLY. He meant just that! Don’t get me wrong-it’s a blessing to have a job, being able to pay our bills on time. However, I believe God desires for us to move past merely paying our bill and living paycheck to paycheck. In Malachi 3:10 (NKJV) God says He will pour us out blessings so large that we don’t even have enough room to receive them all! Then David declares in Psalm 23:5 (NKJV) that His cup RUNS OVER from the blessings of the Lord.
Now this abundance is not only financial but covers ALL areas of our lives. Who needs an abundance of love, joy, peace, and good health? I know I do! I’ve shared with you before how I would receive so much joy from HEARING the Word of God at church only for that joy to quickly vanish soon after leaving. However, when I began to meditate on the Word I had received and also Do the Word, God began to give me an ABUNDANCE of joy, a joy that has yet to leave me.
Now to get this abundance that I speak of we must be obedient to God’s Word. Joshua 1:8 (NKJV) says, when we continually mediate upon the Word and strive to follow the way of the Lord, our way will be prosperous and we will have GOOD success! You see-one can simply have success but lack the understanding to keep that success. We see it all the time, very successful people who fall, losing all they have worked for. However, God says He will give us GOOD success, a success that will be maintained!
I urge you to follow the way of the Lord-you will not be disappointed! God’s goodness never ends; His well NEVER runs dry! John 4:14 (NKJV) tells us that those who drink from God’s well will never thirst again! When we follow the way of the Lord, He will continue to take us higher and higher. We will move from one level of success to another. We will receive blessing after blessing. And just when we think we can’t go any higher, the Lord will prove us wrong and do something NEW again! I’m telling you, the way of the Lord is the way to go! Obey His commandments and whatever He has put on your heart to do, just do it and watch Him bless you!
As always I pray these words have blessed! Like/Comment/Share/Follow
