Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.
Would you like to live a life of abundance? You can! In the book of Ephesians, the apostle Paul gives us an amazing promise. He says that it is your birthright… as a believer… to live an abundant, blessed life.
Remember what Jesus said in John 10:10, “I came that they may have life and have it abundantly.” His riches… His favor… His blessing… His unlimited grace and goodness are available to you!
So what is this blessed and abundant life that is promised to you and me? It’s the supernatural transformation of God in your life.
When you are blessed by God, you are able to rise above your circumstances. You are given a greater vision for your life. You are able to live beyond the limits… and expect and receive things from God Almighty.
The Scripture tells us in James 4:2, “You do not have because you do not ask.” God wants to give you so much more than you can ever imagine… if you will only ask.
My prayer is that you will begin to ask boldly. Ask God for the rich blessings of life that are promised to you… and are already provided for you in Jesus Christ.
Think about it. God delights to give His children good things! God enjoys pouring out His blessings upon us. Our God is not reluctant to give. It’s His very nature to give.
So when you pray, you don’t have to twist God’s arm. Simply open yourself up to receive all that He desires to give you.
My prayer is that you will begin to expect great things from God today. Let your focus be on Him. Let your faith be in Him. And let your future be in Him.
I promise you… your life will never ever be the same.
ARE YOU LIVING THE ABUNDANT LIFE CHRIST PROMISED? GO THROUGH YOUR DAY TODAY WITH AN ATTITUDE OF EXPECTANCY.
OUR THANKS TO YOU!
Do the words rested... peaceful... and refreshed describe you today? Or do the words stressed... rushed... and pressured better describe your way of life?
If you're like most Christians, you'd probably have to admit those last three words more accurately describe your life most of the time!
The good news is that it doesn't have to be this way... even when your life is one big pressure-cooker. And in my new book, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out, I'll show you why.
Based on the principles from Paul's letter to the Philippians and Psalm 23, Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out will help you find true peace and rest in a world that is anything but peaceful and restful. It's the perfect "pause" button you need!
So please request your copy of Pause: Resting in God Instead of Stressing Out when you give online today! --Jack Graham
