During this season of transition that God is undertaking on earth, it’s vital to discover what His ultimate will is for each of us. His enduring Word instructs us clearly on how we can continue to find His peace, protection, and provision amid the fluctuations our world may be going through.
Jesus tells us in His mission statement in John 10:10:
I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
The abundant life is a life filled with the best things of life that God has to offer you – abundant health, abundant peace, abundant love of family and good friends, the abundance of God’s ever-flowing provision and protection. This is the kind of on-going peace and prosperity that Jesus says He has come to give us – the prosperity of a “more abundant life.”
Rather than judging one’s sense of peace and prosperity by the amount of money one has in the bank, or the kind of car one drives, or any of the material things people pursue,
God’s Word explains the manner in which true abundance and prosperity comes to us:
Beloved, I wish above all things that thou mayest prosper and be in health, even as thy soul prospereth. (3 John 1:2)
In order for us to reap God’s greatest blessing and abundance, we must pursue a prosperous soul…we must pursue God!
Yes, God wants you blessed…but when God says He’s going to bless you and prosper you, it’s vital to remember that He’s not just talking about money.
