God wants the best for us, and that includes abundant blessings of every kind in every area of our lives. The Bible says Jesus came that we might have life, and have it more abundantly. This means banishing fear from our lives and embracing what God has already set aside for us. When we believe in what God tells us and start behaving in a way that reflects our beliefs, we will begin to see the manifestations of those blessings.
Elijah listened to God and heard the sound of abundance (1 Kings 18:1).
We as Christians do not need to operate in lack or shortage. God has blessed us abundantly, even in times when we do not physically see the manifestation of those blessings.
There is no deficiency in heaven, but rather a surplus. So it is in heaven, so it can be in our lives.
The enemy comes to take away and steal from us (John 10:10, AMP).
The presence of the Word in our lives nullifies the enemy and renders him powerless.
Jesus came so that we can have abundant life. The key word is “abundant.”
God can pour out so many blessings in our lives, they will overflow and spill over to others.
We need to line up our expectations with the Scriptures. The manifestations of the blessings in our lives hinge on our belief.
When Elijah told Ahab about the abundance from God, Ahab believed (1 Kings 18:41).
We need to listen with our spiritual ears and see through the eyes of the Lord.
The mind is very powerful. It can either allow us to embrace prosperity and abundance or hold us back from it (1 Peter 1:13, AMP).
An abundant life is not reached by living in lack of any kind. We receive God’s blessing through His grace.
Grace is divine favor, and we can set our hope on the knowledge that it will come to us.
When we live by His principles, blessings in our finances and in other areas will be manifested.
This abundance is given to us so that we may bless others with it.
We need a mindset that lines up with God’s Word. That alignment is found in the Scriptures.
It is not God’s will for us to be broke and in debt. In order to believe in our abundance and prosperity we need to brace up and support our minds with the Scriptures.
We must deliberately choose the things that pertain to life and godliness.
We are God’s children, and He tells us to listen and obey (Proverbs 4:20-23).
We must fix our minds on what God intends for us.
In addition to our minds, we must also keep God’s word in our hearts. Internalize it and let it sink into our psyche.
His word is life and abundance
1 Kings 18:1, 41
John 10:10, AMP
1 Peter 1:13, AMP
Ephesians 3:14 For this reason I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ,
15 from whom the whole family in heaven and earth is named, 16 that He would grant you, according to the riches of His glory, to be strengthened with might through His Spirit in the inner man, 17 that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith; that you, being rooted and grounded in love, 18 may be able to comprehend with all the saints what is the width and length and depth and height — 19 to know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. 20 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, 21 to Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
SERMONS DO NOT CHANGE PEOPLE OR NEGATIVE CIRCUMSTANCES BUT THE POWER OF GOD THROUGH THE ANOINTING DOES AND CAN. GOD CAN AND WILL DO THE IMPOSSIBLE FOR THOSE WHO BELIEVE AND ALLOW HIS POWER TO WORK IN THEM. HE CAN HEAL ANY SICK OR BROKEN BODY. HE CAN MEET AND SUPPLY EACH AND EVERY NEED. HE CAN DEAL WITH AND DESTROY ANY AND EVERY ENEMY. HE CAN MOVE ANY MOUNTAIN INTO THE SEA. GOD’S SUPPLY IS LIMITLESS AND ETERNALLY YOURS. YOU WILL NEVER EXHAUST GOD’S SUPPLY!
ISAIAH 41:10 Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, Yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.’ 11 ” Behold, all those who were incensed against you Shall be ashamed and disgraced; They shall be as nothing, And those who strive with you shall perish. 12 You shall seek them and not find them — Those who contended with you. Those who war against you Shall be as nothing, As a nonexistent thing. 13 For I, the LORD your God, will hold your right hand, Saying to you, ‘Fear not, I will help you
You Are A Son And An Heir Of God
6And because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying out, “Abba, Father!” 7Therefore you are no longer a slave but a son, and if a son, then an heir of God through Christ. Galatians 4:6–7
Perhaps these questions have been popping into your head lately: “If You are a Christian, why are you sick? If your heavenly Father is so wonderful, why do you have so many problems? Doesn’t your God help you, His child?”
And if you have been tempted to ask, “God, I am Your child. Why is this happening to me?” know that Jesus knows exactly how you feel because 2,000 years ago, the devil played the same trick on Him — “If you are the Son of God…” (Matthew 4:3) You see, the devil’s intention was to make Jesus doubt His Sonship, and the devil wants to do the same thing to you today.
He wants to destroy the Spirit of sonship in you and in the body of believers. He knows that once you really believe that you are a son of God, something happens — you begin to live life as “an heir of God through Christ”.
As a son and an heir of God, you inherit all the blessings of God which Jesus died to give you, including salvation, healing, prosperity, wholeness, favor, intimacy with God and answered prayers. And Jesus rose from the dead to make sure that what He died to give you, you get. He is alive today to enforce this rich, blood-bought inheritance in your life!
My friend, you are an heir of God through Christ. This means that you are joint heirs with Jesus. (Romans 8:17) So His inheritance is your inheritance too!
What is prosperity when you are an heir of God? All the diamonds and gold came from Him. What is provision when you are an heir of God? He owns every beast in the forest and the cattle on a thousand hills. (Psalm 50:10) What is healing when you are an heir of God? He is your Creator and the very breath of your life.
Beloved, enjoy every bit of your inheritance in Christ, not because you deserve it, but because it was paid for by Jesus’ blood!
Thought For The Day
As joint heirs with Christ, His inheritance is your inheritance too!
