I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
God is a God of abundance! You might be thinking, “I already know that.” Often we know this truth intellectually but have not allowed it to sink deep down and take root in our hearts. Think about this for a moment, planetary scientists state that there are currently around 7 billion people residing on the planet earth. Believe it or not, God has provisions for each one of these people living on the earth. There is not a provision problem but a faith problem. You might also be thinking right now, “But Jesus said the poor you will have with you always.” While it is true that Jesus did say in Mark 26:11 that “for ye have the poor always with you” that statement was made out of divine foreknowledge and not out of divine will. In essence, in His foreknowledge, God knew that there would always be people that experienced lack because they either do not have knowledge of Him, do not know how to operate in faith to receive the promises of God, or simply will not operate in faith to receive the abundance and abundant life He promised. Nonetheless, He never said that lack of provisions was His will. On the contrary, the Bible states that I have not “seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread” (Psalms 37:5). It also states that as Believers, we are “joint-heirs with Christ” (Romans 8:17). If we are joint-heirs with Christ it means that everything He has belongs to us as well. Even in the natural, everything a parent has (for the most part) belongs to their child as well. The child is given the benefit of residing in the parent’s home, riding in their car, eating their food, and many more things. God is the same way with us. God’s abundance is also shown in His original plan for mankind. Man was never supposed to die but death came into the human race after Adam and Eve’s transgression in the Garden of Eden. Think about that for a moment. If man was never supposed to die and there are currently around 7 billion people on the planet earth, today there would be trillions upon innumerable trillions had Adam never sinned and every man born lived forever! And just like the original Garden was bountiful and beautiful, somehow God would have provisions for each and every one of those trillions upon trillions of people living today. God is only limited by our thinking and lack of faith. Don’t limit God in your thinking concerning abundant financial provisions, prosperity in your relationships, increase in your job/business, prosperity in your body, or fullness in your walk with Him. We serve a God of abundance that reigns in a heaven with precious stones, streets paved of gold, and all types of overflow. Whatever you are in need of today, remember that God is a God of abundance!
