Our God of More than Enough
There is no shortage in the abundance of blessings we are promised as God's children. We should expect to receive from Him if we believe the promises He's given us in His Word. To believe otherwise is to show that we have no confidence in God's word. This would indicate that we believe that He lied when He gave us these promises and throughout the Bible, we are told over and over again that God cannot lie.
Ephesians 3:20-21 says, "Our God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we can ask or even think, according to the power that works in us." This power is our faith. Our faith in God!
It is by faith we receive from Him, for Jesus said, "According to your faith let it be unto you" (Matt 9:29). So where is your faith? God is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that you can ask or even think!
If you are ever going to experience the fullness of God's blessings in your life, you must absolutely believe in His ability, and willingness, to bless you outrageously.
Many people will say, "Well, it's not all about me." That's exactly right. We were put here for God's pleasure (Rev 4:11). What is his pleasure? To bless, care for, and prosper His children. We bring Him honor and glory when our lives are fruitful, for He takes pleasure in the prosperity of His children (Psalm 149:4).
If you know that God loves you, cares for you, and wants to bless you, doesn't it make sense that you should believe Him for His best in your life?
Release your faith and believe Him for great things, for He is more than able and more than willing to give you the desires of your heart. Proverbs 10:24 says, "The desire of the righteous shall be granted."
If He will give us the desires of our hearts, don't you think He will go over and beyond our basic needs?
I love the story about the five loaves and two fish. A multitude of people followed Jesus up the mountain to hear Him preach and He knew they were hungry. Andrew searched around for some food and found a boy with some bread and two fish. Jesus blessed it, gave it to the disciples to distribute, and then it began to multiply! After all 5,000 people ate there were twelve basket fulls left over!
He's our God of more than enough.
