Imagine winning a 20 minute shopping spree in a home décor store. I go into that store and there’s so much available that I like I sometimes find it hard to pick just one thing. To be able to go through and just get whatever I like and put it in the buggy knowing that it was going to be mine. I’d be running around right in the middle of all I could want. For the guys it might be a hunting or sports store, but you can imagine just how much fun that would be. Nothing off limits, everything available for 20 minutes! Imagine someone turning down such a cool prize.
Are you dreaming about someday having all God wants for you? Well that someday is today! You have God all around you and resident within you. You can fill up and let it run over today. And with the Lord there’s no limit to what He has for you. He’s not bound by time or money. He holds back nothing from His children. He gives freely all that is available and never says time’s up. All of His love, joy, peace, kindness, gentleness, patience and self-control are free for the asking. His fruits are always in season. His gifts are given to ALL His children who desire them. The more you take those fruits and gifts, the more there is for you. God’s gifts flow abundantly as you use them liberally. The more you walk in God’s Word and find Truth to live by, the stronger it becomes. God’s only requirements are a yielded vessel who wants it with all their heart.
Oh beloved, you may have lived looking through the window of God’s Word and thought that it wasn’t for you. Someone may have told you that God is mad at you, through with you or He would refuse you for one reason or another. You are the winner! Your prize is life in Christ, with all the benefits! Reach out for the Word this morning and see all the great and magnificent promises that He gives His children. Because you are In CHRIST, you are cherished, supplied and full of all God’s children can have. He has no favorites for He delights in giving all things richly for His own to enjoy. Don’t let hindrances keep you held back from the most bountiful life in the Spirit ever. To be sure there will be hard times but God has a supply for that. There will be moments of fear and God has supplied courage for all that you face. Whatever you need, beloved, it’s yours for the asking.
God loves you and He’s for you. Give your heart fresh and new to Jesus and watch as the gifts and calling flow into your heart. God knows no limits for His own. You are blessed, favored, and God wants to give you everything you need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. The abundant life is yours because you said yes to Christ. Live in the Light of His Word and enjoy the presence of the Lord and His wonderful, everlasting glory and grace!
