“The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.” John 10:10 NLT
Do you pray that God will help you live a rich and fulfilling life? Do you pray in faith, believing He will give you what you ask?
The Christian does not need to beg God for what is already his or hers. Suppose that you want to cash a check for a hundred dollars. Would you go to the bank where you have twenty thousand dollars on deposit, place the check on the counter, get down on your knees, and say, “Oh please cash my check!”?
No, that is not the way you cash a check. You simply go in faith, place the check on the counter, and wait for the money that is already yours. Then, you thank the teller and go on your way.
Millions of Christians are begging God for a life of victory and power which is already theirs, an abundant life just waiting to be appropriated by faith. However, what many expect the abundant life to look like is not what God actually promised. Some are seeking an emotional experience, not realizing that such an attitude on their part is an insult to God and a denial of faith, without which we cannot please God. Others seek satisfaction in financial stability, professional success or strife free relationships... all are understandable desires but none will provide deep satisfaction God promises.
If you have accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior you already have all you need, in the power of the Holy Spirit, to live a life that is rich and satisfying - regardless of your circumstances. Let today be the day you begin to experience what He promised!
Your View of God Really Matters…
What has God promised you? God is unchanging and His promises are the same yesterday, today and forever. What He has promised is already yours. Tell Him that you are ready to receive it today. Start by making sure you understand how to live in empowered by the Holy Spirit.
Read God’s Word Today…
1 Peter 5:10 NIV “And the God of all grace, who called you to His eternal glory in Christ, after you have suffered a little while, will Himself restore you and make you strong, firm and steadfast.”
GOD, because You never change I can count on your promises yesterday, today and forever.
