Word 4 Today January 14, 2011

IS GOD THE GOD OF BARELY ENOUGH, OR MORE THAN ENOUGH?

Jesus came to give us the abundant life.  John 10:10 “I have come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”  Abundant life is more than material wealth; abundant life is a whole and complete life it is like a whole pie, not one slice missing. It is a life that is mentally sound, spiritually growing, physically healthy and joyously and powerfully complete.  We can have it all if we follow the right way, but all are not willing to accept the gift of God for an abundant life, a gift held out free for all.  Some just don’t care to stretch out their hand and take it.  The richest gift God has to offer is abundant life, but most people turn away from it and reject it. They will have none of such “foolishness.”  Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us. 

Ephesians 3:20

PRAYER 4 TODAY

I pray that I would run to receive the gift of the abundant life, spiritually, mentally, physically and emotionally.  God, surprise me with answers to prayer that will far exceed anything I could have ever imagined.  Lord, You have already given Your very best first, Your Son, and it is only through His name that we may receive the abundant life.

THOUGHT 4 TODAY

Am I too proud to reach out my hand and ask God to fill it?
