Expect Abundance from God
Do you expect mediocre things in life or do you expect abundance? My favorite scripture is Ephesians 3:20. "Now to Him who is able to do far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us." I cling to this scripture! I dream of what God is going to do for me. And even in my best dream, it's far more than I can imagine, according to His Word!
One mistake we sometimes make, is focusing on the wrong things. When we are in need, it's easy to focus on what we don't have. Sometimes we fixate on it and dwell on it. We mope about it, become depressed. And we worry. Here are four points on worry. 1) Worry is like a rocking chair, it keeps you busy but you don't get anywhere. 2) Worry is thinking you can fix things better than God or trying to do life without Him. 3) Worry is meditating on everything you don't want. 4) Worry can become chronic and lead to depression or physical illness. We either believe the Word of God or we don't.
When things seem utterly impossible, God shows up and shows out. We read in God's Word, "God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all you need, you will abound in every good work." 2 Cor. 9:8. God solves things at a different level, for our long term good. In the above scripture, we see quite a huge promise. Our Father promises us that we will have everything we need and then some, if we put our trust in Him. Worry can be a stumbling block or a stepping stone into God's ultimate favor. Place scriptures, positive visuals, and encouraging thoughts everywhere so you can see them. God, Himself, encourages us to think positively. There is a reason for it. So that we can demonstrate the goodness of the Lord and so that in all things He will be glorified.
