The very title rather startles one’s heart. Think of having the abundance of God for our daily walk in the presence of the Father, though almost everyone is talking about their poverty of spirit, their lack of faith, their lack of ability to carry out the will of the Father in their lives. If you will turn with me to
John 10:10 – The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.
Jesus declares that the reason that He came was that man might have an abundance of the life of God. Why? Well, it was because Satan had stripped man utterly of everything that was beautiful. Jesus came to replenish, to rebuild, to recreate, to make man or woman over new, but especially, to fill him with something that would utterly meet every need of his or her life.
Now, God is love, so when this abundance of life comes, there is going to come with it an abundance of love. Can you imagine how people would react nowadays if there was an abundance of Agape, this Jesus kind of love? Every man and woman would be seeking to help the other one. Love would go out hunting for needy folks. Every car would be crowded with men and women that were poverty stricken spiritually and are now free.
I am drawn to this Scripture, I John 4:4
“Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world”.
You are born out of abundance, born out of fullness, you are of God. You are the sons and daughters of God. Ye are of God, and nothing will so enrich our lives as for us to quietly say, “I am of God. I am begotten of God. I have God’s very nature in me.” Along with His nature, you have the ability to be a helper, a burden-bearer, an inspiration to men.
Father, I thank you for the abundant life that you have given me. I am an expression of your love. I trust your word and I know that the abundant life is manifesting in me. I am a partaker of God’s divine nature, I am the seed of Abraham and therefore the whole world belongs to me. in Jesus’ name. Amen.
