Psalm 35:27 (NIV)
27 May those who delight in my vindication
shout for joy and gladness;
may they always say, “The Lord be exalted,
who delights in the well-being of his servant.”
God desires that we be blessed and prosperous. He desires that we be blessed so that we can turn around and be a blessing wherever we go. God blesses us and then we should use our gained blessing to go and help bless others. It is the idea of keeping God’s love flowing. If we get blessed and don’t pass it on, the flow of God’s love is stopped and it never reaches its full potential. God wants you to have so much peace, so much joy, so much victory that when other people get around you, it spills over onto them.
Don’t let yourself have a “barely-get-by” mentality. Jesus came to earth so that we can live an abundant life knowing that all of our sins will be forgiven. That means an abundance of joy, an abundance of peace, an abundance of health, and abundance of finances. We may not see it right now, and may not have experienced it in the past, but we should not develop a mindset of complacency and just settle for where we are right now. God has so much more in store for each of us. If we are still taking breaths, it means that God is not done with us yet. We still have more of our story, more of our mark on the world to make.
I want to challenge us all to get a vision for our future. Get a vision for increase in our lives. Get a vision for abundance. We are capable of so much more than where we find ourselves today.
God wants to see us prosperous and successful. When we choose to think God’s thoughts and choose God’s way, we will see that increase and victory in every area of our lives. Anything is possible through God and so we need to a better job of thinking and living our lives with that in mind.
