What Abundance Looks Like

And God is able to make all grace [every favor and earthly blessing] come in abundance to you, so that you may always [under all circumstances, regardless of the need] have complete sufficiency in everything [being completely self-sufficient in Him], and have an abundance for every good work and act of charity. II Corinthians 9:8 AMP

Abundance; an extremely plentiful or oversufficient quantity or supply

You were never meant to be broke; God is your Provider. You were never meant to be sick; God is your Healer. You were never meant to be fearful; God is your Protector. You were never meant to be alone; God is with you. Your husband is His. Your children are His. Your life is His. He is God and there is no other. If He is for you, who can be against you? Won’t you just take a moment and thank Him? He’s been all this and more to you.

Here we are trying to do it all by ourselves and God has already provided every favor, every earthly blessing, every miracle needed and every way of escape. He’s placed it all inside of us, easy to access, He simply wants us to trust Him. Think about that for a moment. How drastically would your life change if you really believed that verse? You wouldn’t sweat it, you’d simply believe and trust Him for direction as you move in obedience to His leading.

That abundance He’s speaking of isn’t just for you. No, it’s for those you come into contact with. You see, they need what you have inside of you, they just don’t know they need it yet. But if you will allow God to be big in you, the overflow from you will cause them to desire to cuddle up to Father as you’ve learned to. Don’t hoard the abundance, be a giver as God has been to you.

Father, so many times I just wanted to be in control and I’ve messed things up so much. I repent of my self-sufficiency. What was I thinking? That I had enough wisdom in myself to make it all happen? I realize now that everything in my life was designed to develop total trust in You.

So today, I submit and surrender to You. Be the author and finisher of my faith. You have given my access to You by giving my Your Holy Spirit to counsel me, instruct me and direct my steps. It’s He who keeps me healthy and strong, balanced and walking in love and forgiveness. I acknowledge my need to partner with You in everything I do. You are the only wise one and I need to have relationship with You so that every other relationship my benefit from ours.

Father, You are amazing beyond words, even beyond my ability to comprehend. Therefore I will place my hope and trust in You. I will not give up and quit. I know that You hear every word I speak and are attentive to my very whispers, so I will remind You of Your promises to never leave me or forsake me. I know You will deliver on Your promises in due time as I continue to place my hand in Yours. It’s in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Until Next Time,

Sandy G
