One of my favourite verses in Scripture is John 10 v 10.
We can read about the mission of Jesus and the mission of the enemy in the same verse.
Jesus came to bring us life, and life in abundance.
The enemy is here to steal, kill and destroy what we have received from Jesus.
You have to already have something in your life before the enemy can steal, kill or destroy it.
So we already have this abundance provided by Jesus.
Every born again believer has therefore been provided with abundance.
Now this is not just about money, however money is included.
The Word says that Jesus was made poor (in monetary terms) so that we could be made rich (in monetary terms) (2 Corinthians 8 v 9).
Money is a resource there to be used for the furtherance of the Kingdom, not to fulfil your own lusts.
So do not be embarrassed if you have abundance (especially in monetary terms), but as I wrote yesterday never let a love for money come into your life.
Let your love of God and God’s love for you shine through how you use this money and abundance that Jesus has provided for you, being a testimony to others.
Do not let the enemy steal your abundance through a false humility or through ignorance of the Word.
Speak this out today…..”Thank you Lord that I can live in abundance because of the finished work of Jesus Christ”.
John 10 v 10…..The thief cometh not, but for to steal, kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly
