Are you living in abundance? Jesus came to give you life more abundantly. Sadly, many think this simply means the abundance of earthly things such as money, big cars, fame, a big house or material things. The abundance He speaks of includes the indwelling of the Holy Spirit which produces the fruit of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness. The abundance He speaks of softens your heart (for it is always a heart issue) and lets His compassion flow through you to others. His abundance is most notable in being able to rest in His peace despite what is going on around you. His peace is abundant and will give you a most abundant life! For it is written: “The thief comes only to steal, and kill, and destroy; I came that they might have life, and might have it abundantly.” Jesus John 10:10

God is amazing! Just pay attention and stay open. Then, you will see His hand blessing you throughout your day. Heaven-sent blessings can be found in the humblest moments. Simplify your expectations. Let God be God. Let’s magnify the Lord every day and walk in His glory! For it is written: “Oh magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt his name together.” Psalm 34:3

Many are consumed with things they have heard, read or been taught. They sadly have lost the ability to be open to anything new that does not fit into the box of their comfort zone. Being so restrained can keep you imprisoned emotionally, physically and spiritually. Jesus came to set free those held captive within the confines of religious doctrine or words spoken over them. If you are living bound by the doctrine or words of man on any level, seek Him. So many live far beneath what Jesus died to give His followers. Arise “for such a time as this!” Lay it all before Him. Truly make Him the Lord of your life and relinquish your control. Let Him lead, direct and guide you. Whatever your circumstance, let Him set you free indeed! For it is written: “Therefore, if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” Jesus John 8:36

When facing a challenging situation it is well to remember that every circumstance is subject to change. For it is written: “His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for life; weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.” Psalm 30:5 Lament if and when you must but then move on and release whatever person, place or thing brought you to your knees. Kneel before Him. Release all that is not of Him. Diligently seek Him. Rise up in the joy of the Lord for therein lies your strength!

Whatever your struggle may be, do not carry it alone. For it is written: “Cast all your care upon Him; for He cares for you.” 1 Peter 5:7 Cast it all!

It is in the brokenness that you are made whole. At the pool of Bethesda, in the story of the man who had been infirm for thirty eight years, you can only imagine the brokenness he experienced during that time. He says he has no one. Have you ever been abandoned by friends or family as you walked through a long challenge? Some may come along side you initially but few if any stay for the entire journey. Such is life. Yet this man continued to believe and press in until the set time when he encountered Jesus. It is in that Kairos moment that from his physical, emotional and spiritual brokenness he is made whole. Strong’s Concordance, Greek hygies, 5199, defines whole as healthy, sound, well, whole. Thirty eight years of untold and unimaginable breaking is miraculously sealed into wholeness by one encounter with Jesus at the appointed time. For it is written: “When Jesus saw him lying there, and knew he had been in that condition a long time, He said to him. “Do you want to be made whole?...Rise, take up your bed and walk…See, you have been made whole. Sin no more lest a worse thing come upon you.” Jesus John 5:6, 8, 14 Whatever may be challenging you in your life right now, ask yourself this question: Do you want to be made whole? Take your answer straight to the throne room of heaven and believe without doubt. Wait for your Kairos moment!

While perusing my favorite thrift shop, I came upon a beautiful music box. It is fine porcelain. The colors are soft. They cast a gentle sense of peace. The music box did not work but I brought it home anyway. Taking it apart I was thrilled to be able to fix it! However, when it played before I put the cover back on it; it was so soft it could barely be heard. I carefully put it back together and tried it again. A most beautiful sound emanated! I could not help but think that we are much like that little music box. On our own we produce little. However, under His cover and direction, our persona becomes softened. We emanate peace to those around us. Our life becomes a beautiful melody. For it is written: “Therefore by their fruits you will know them.” Jesus Matthew 7:20

You have but one life to live. Forgive readily. Bless others. Look forward with anticipation. Be thankful for all you have. Seek what is good. For it is written: “ Finally, brethren, whatever things are true, whatever things are noble, whatever things are just, whatever things are pure, whatever things are lovely, whatever things are of good report, if there is any virtue and if there is anything praiseworthy—meditate on these things.” Philippians 4:8

Everyone has challenges. Even though a particular challenge has the same label for all afflicted, the manifestation is as unique as each individual. Always remember: You are not your challenge; You are not the label; You are not only that. For it is written: “You have hedged me in behind and before, and laid Your hand upon me…I will praise You, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made; marvelous are Your works, and that my soul knows very well.” Psalm 139:5, 14 Always remember that the same God who fashioned you and formed you in your mother’s womb is the very same God Who keeps you and can heal and restore you in His perfect time! The name of Jesus is above the name of every diagnosis. Speak His name. Do not ruminate on the labels spoken by men.
